love, but

love! just a pinch too dark, great for older dry skin, and doesn't irritate my skin like most foundations.
any chance this can be made in a NC/NW 10?
please oh please

Not for me
Tags +Creamy, Hydrating, medium to full coverage, satin finish, Lightweight
PROS
- hydrating
- medium to full coverage
- satin finish
- easy to blend
- lightweight
- packaging
CONS
- settles into fine lines
- becomes blotchy throughout the day
- can look cakey
- clings slightly onto dry spots
- poor staying power
COMMENTS:This is a satin finish, medium to full coverage foundation. Don't expect this to control oil or stay on well because it's a more emollient formula, but surprisingly still clings to dry spots. It's lightweight, but always looks cakey after a short period of time. It just doesn't look smooth. It looks blotchy throughout the day and settles into fine lines and pores pretty quickly. It just doesn't make the skin look pretty. Also, keep in mind that the oils and pigment can separate. Make sure to shake the tube well prior to using.

a little disappointed
Tags +Color true
I love the consistency, texture and color but I had bumps on my face after using this. Im trying to figure out why... I'm thinking its the ingredient octinoxate? I got bumps too after using chanel and sonia kashuk foundations because of octinoxate. Well maybe next time I'll avoid that ingredient.

Beautiful finish
Tags +Creamy
I love the finish and the coverage is pretty good. It needs more shades though. NC 25 is too light and NC 30 too dark.

Disappointed But Still Interested.
Tags +Creamy
I loved the formula of this product, however I was extremely disappointed in how pale and sightly greenish- gray it looked on my face. I was matched NC50, too yellow and dark for my (neutral- yellow) skin tone. Long story short I returned this item.

LOVE THIS
Tags +Long wearing
By FAR my favorite foundation EVER. Not sure why there are complaints about turning orangey? Has never happened to me and I've been using this for several years.Maybe they are using the NC rather than the NW shades? And I've never had this separate coming out of the tube.The gel formulation applies beautifully with perfect coverage. My go to shade is NC25 and my skin is combo to dry in our cold winters.

Tags +#makesyoulookorange
I have tried several different foundation from MAC and came to the conclusion to NEVER by MAC's foundation again. I don't understand why all of your foundations for WOC makes us look orange??? I received this foundation yesterday and half way through the day, I looked like I belonged in a Willie Wonka movie.

Disappointed
Tags +Color true
This was my first Mac foundation purchase. The color is fine but the consistency is off. When squeezing out of tube sometimes I get foundation and sometimes clear oil. Shaking makes no difference. Not a problem I expected to encounter. Would not buy again.

:(
it creases almost immediately and oxidizes after a couple of hours. i've worn it with tens of different products and primers but nothing seems to work for me. the coverage is beyond amazing, but the foundation itself wipes off after a couple of hours. i also think that the foundation is more oily than it is dewy. i love mac so much, but i'm so let down with this product.

NW45 Studio Sculpt
Tags +Creamy, Color true
OMG I love this product! It was a perfect match to my skin. I was worried at first that the foundation would be too dark but it wasn't! I have a weird skin tone and it matched to the T! I love that I can take a picture with the flash on and not get that ashy look as I get with the NC50 foundation in prolongware. I was matched a while ago with the NC50 then I did research on NW shades and decided to try it. I first oredered the NC45 and it was a little bit too light but the NW45 was perfect! Love it! It is a bit sticky but still works just fine!

Great For Dry Skin
Tags +Creamy
I absolutely love this foundation. It is a medium coverage foundation. Perfect for those of us with dry skin as it doesn't settle into lines like studio fix does. The only reason i gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because a lot of the product gets trapped in the tube and you have to cut it open to scrape it out.

Great foundation for events and the winter!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
MAC studio sculpt is a great foundation that provides medium to full coverage. Its a gel that doesn't feel too heavy on the skin, I found that its long lasting even without a primer! sometimes I don't set this with a powder because I feel that it can look a little cakey but it looks great without powder too. The only downsides to this foundation is that if you apply to much it can look like youre wearing a lot. It also oxidizes after setting so be careful when choosing your shade. Also, after using other products for a few months, when I tried to use it again, liquidy product was coming out of the tube instead of the thicker gel that is the foundation. Ive tried to shake it up but it seperates over time when you don't use it.

Dewy heaven!
Tags +Color true, Long wearing
This has became my new favorite foundation and I cannot put it down! I love how it makes my skin dewy and doesn't break me out (considering I have combo/oily skin). It also smells good to me,even though the smell isn't good to most who use this. Definitely recommend for other combination/oily people who want a dewy semi-matte finish! Job well done MAC.

I love this foundation! When I first thought about investing in a foundation, I tried all the drug store ones and nothing did it for me. Until I went to MAC and the MA suggested this one! I have really good skin so I don't need too much coverage, but I use it for full coverage to cover. Thanks MAC! This is my go to main foundation. Very matte and very natural looking!

I completely regret buying this foundation. It creases nearly instantly after applying, appears very cakey and it oxidizes to an awful orange colour after about 30 minutes. If I could still return this foundation, I would.

Not meant for beginners
Tags +Long wearing
Amazing makeup that I am a consistent repurchaser of. However for those that I see the complaints on this foundation it is not meant for beginners. It takes a technique to know how to apply this foundation correctly and might take you a few tries to get it correct. When applied correctly however it will give you a flawless finish. I've worn this foundation for everyday, going to the club, and even to a wedding. No regrets
