Im always scared to try new foundations but I love this product. The product covered everything that i would normally need a concealer to cover. You cant even tell i was wearing makeup honestly. If your skin is oily dont get it i would recommend applying a light powder to remove some of the shine but i would order it again

Not for me
Tags +Creamy
This foundation was not for me. The coverage certainly meets the standards of full coverage. I was disappointed in the color of the foundation though. I would definitely have to buy 2 foundations and mix in order to obtain the color I desire. I'll be sticking with Studio Tech.

Great product
Tags +Color true
Overall this is a great product. I would say it's more of a medium coverage, but it still provides pretty good coverage. It doesn't last all day, but honestly I haven't found a foundation that keeps good coverage the whole day. I'm in the color NW20, and it matches my skin perfectly!

Great, NC 45
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I bought this in the shade NC 45. It is my favorite foundation and the only one I use. I apply it with the MAC studio tech sponge, lol studio tech is my 2nd foundation if needed one day. I like the fact that I don't have to apply concealer because it literally covers everything! Just be sure to blend it around the jaw and neck with a brush. I have sensitive skin and keep my foundation plus my entire makeup routine to a minimum of products. The less the better for my NC 45 skin. It is cream to powder texture, great true color, & last all day.

Bad
This stuff is horrible, at first I thought I was going to love it then after 10 min the foundation sunk into all my lines and made me look like I had wrinkles and I'm only 24. Not only that but when I apply my favorite powder over it it makes my face look even worse and by the end of the day the foundation comes off...
And it ends up being oily on me.
And I never received any free samples when I ordered :/
Very disappointed !

Bring back C35
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
I give this foundation a 3 because it does not Match my color. I have always used C35 but MAC decided to discontinue it. C40is too dark but perfect for my mom's skin color. This product is only sold in MAC pro stores and the closest one to me is 2 hours away. Please, please, please, bring back C35. This shade is perfect for my skin and covers up my melasma very well. Yes, this product is great, but my new color that i got matched up with is off and you can see a pink undertone. I have a yellow undertone.

Bad
Tags +Color true
At first it seemed great, I put it all over my face it seemed to cover my bad spots but you def need powder to make it stay on . This makes my face feel oily, and at the end of the day I just felt like my face is dirty and heavy. I am disappointed because I wanted to love this product. But it was just too oily for me, it came off fast and creased into all my lines on my face . :/

Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
i was looking for a foundation to cover my kazillion dark freckles that didnt give my cake face & this wAs it! its like the same formula of the concealor! i have normal to oily skin with some dark acne marks. it made my skin look flawless BUT YOU DO HAVE TO SET IT WITH A POWDER OR MATTIFYING SPRAY as it is naturally shiny on the face & transfers very easily if u touch it.

Foundation Junky
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
Love, love, love this Cream Full Coverage Foundation. It is Medium to Full Coverage and quite thick & creamy. It comes in a cream compact & I find its best to swirl finger in the Product to warm up and then dot all over your face. I then use my Buffing Brush for application. Sadly I find Shade does run Light. I Purchased Nc30 & I find it's 2 shades lighter than NC30 Studio Fix Fluid and 1 shade lighter than NC30 Pro Longwear Foundation. So to be safe I'd recommend to at least buy 1 shade darker then normal. I Would definitely repurchase again.
I have Combination to Oily Skin & crazy Hyperpigmentation or Melasma. It doesn't Full cover completely but does a somewhat good job & has a nice finish. For fuller coverage I actually apply this first, then either Studio Fix Fluis or Pro Longwear for a Fuller Coverage because of my dark spots.

Awful
I have oily skin with some scarring and have been looking for a full coverage foundation that will not be greasy and is full coverage. This is NOT it. I had to put so much of it on to even make it look like medium coverage then it was incredibly greasy right after I put it on. I used a primer and a powder to hold it in and nothing worked.

Perfect Color
Tags +Color true
I was a bit skeptical on finding the proper color in this makeup, but I ordered the W10 shade and it was perfect. A lot of other brands don't offer light enough shades that match my neck/collar/upper chest, so that was a major benefit. I am actually going to look into some other face products by them for that specific reason.
The only reason I gave this four stars is because it wasn't exactly the right choice for my skin. I have pretty oily skin and pretty much any makeup I wear starts to melt away after a couple of hours. Unfortunately, this was one of those. I am not sure if it was just my skin, or if it didn't mix well with my other products (moisturizer, primer, powder). I do blot a lot during a typical day, and this makeup didn't hold up through that for me; it came off on the blotting sheets and eventually it looked like I almost had no makeup left on my face (got blotchy). I also noticed that it got stuck/caked into the small creases beneath my eyes and on some dry spots on my face (mainly some acne spots).
Other than that, the color is excellent. The product was easy to apply and looked great when I first put it on. It did have coverage that was pretty full. I do have acne spots that it didn't quite cover, but I just used more over those spots or placed concealer there. I would recommend this for anyone with normal skin. If you have very oily skin, I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a very good powder or some other technique to keep it fresh all day long.
I ended up returning it due to my experience, but I plan to look at some other items here that may work better on my skin.

Just what I needed
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I really like this product! I had been using a different MAC compact foundation, but the color was a bit too light, felt like the wrong undertone, and looked cakey yet didn't cover what I wanted it to cover. I decided to give this one a go, since it was billed as full coverage, and I'm glad I did! I got this in NW20, and it was the perfect shade for my skin, which I feel has mostly neutral undertones and is pretty pale and freckly. It gives thorough coverage and applies quite evenly on me, which means it only takes about a minute to swipe this on in the morning! I've just been using a sponge to apply it, dabbing and then blending at the end, and it's worked great so far! I think this is going to be my staple foundation!

Great product if you need the coverage.
Me personally, I have fairly clear skin and prefer a light coverage foundation. My sister, however, is my polar opposite when it comes to skin and, therefore, needs different products. Being a faithful MAC customer for life, I started looking around to see if MAC had what she needs for her face. She's struggled with acne and redness for years and nothing quite covers it. Most foundations tackle some of the redness, but she needs something, well, industrial strength to say the least, haha. This absolutely does the trick. Before I got married, I splurged on several key products for the two of us to make sure that we were both picture-ready and this was one of them. She uses it to this day! Great coverage, smooth finish and not too cakey.

I finally found the perfect match for me (C40). I've tried several high end foundations but this is the only one that i fell in love with. I just feel like.. "I look-like-a-movie star" after putting this on. Thanks, MAC!

I don't wear makeup everyday but when I do, I like for it to look natural, and this product was PERF! It gave my face a very smooth look and I didn't have to keep checking the mirror because it was indeed long lasting!

brilliant on legs!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
I originally bought the Pro full coverage based on internet make-up guru Wayne Goss' recommendation as his very best and favorite foundation. I use this to cover leg imperfections such as when I get a mosquito bite or want to cover some spider veins. I dab it on with a sponge until I get enough coverage built up. It does not come off even while dancing! I originally used it on my face to cover red patches which it also does perfectly.
