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.

Thanks MAC!

10/10 recommend
I didn't use a concealer when I applied to test and see how well it worked and needless to say I am extremely impressed I have a lot of acne/acne scars and it covered it all. It looked photoshopped finished. I would 10/10 recommend it for people who need heavy coverage.

Meh....
Tags +Long wearing
This was another product that a MAC specialist recommended as a comparable product to the Studio Stick Foundation that has been discontinued. While it does provide full coverage, i find the texture to be too thick to go on smoothly. I thinned the product out with a wet/damp sponge to make it buildable, but now i have to carry around a soggy sponge - yuck. I found also that this product makes my combination skin oilier for some reason, so I have to apply press powder more often. I think the formulation of the Studio Stick was much better and in it's enclosed case, it felt more sanitary. I wish this compact had a slot beneath it to store the sponge like the press powder compacts have. I guess I will try one of the other foundation formulations to see if one of those work better for me.

Tags +Buildable
This product is amazing. Very full coverage, I don't even need concealer. It can also be sheered down to a lighter consistency. I use the beauty blender to give it a more flawless airbrushed finish. Make sure that you set it. Great for all types of skin...oily really needs to be set.

missed match:-( advice????
Tags +Long wearing, Buildable, coverage blends well long wear
After wanting to try Mac for so long, I finally ordered this in NC20, I got it wrong. I LOVE the way it covered, felt, blended, n paired w/ prep n prime, it lasted all day. So just return it????? I used it the 1st day I got it, then hoping I could "save" it by mixing the makeup I was already wearing and then applying my MAC n trying to blend the two... I used it again the next day and its not the same. I have terrible red scars on my face so I need a color that will help cover that without any orangey look. Does anyone recommend what to do. There isn't even a store n my state!!!! Just saying!!!

Tags +Buildable, full coverage beauty photography movie shoots
It's true!! I've been using this Foundation for years on Clients simply because it shows flawless on camera. It does not take a lot to cover dark marks, scars, or any imperfection. The best brush to use with this foundation is the 130 brush, it helps with blending so that the foundation won't look cakey. And it must be set with a powder.
