Love it!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I was looking for so long for a good compact foundation that went on smooth and looked flawless! I've tried SOOOO many and I highly recommend this one!! I use it with a brush for easy application since the pad it comes with can get really dirty. Totally worth the purchase! I love it!

Good, hydrating foundation
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Natural looking, Hydrating
I was looking for a compact foundation and I have tried some other brands but they were all disappointments. I decided to try Mac because I use other Mac foundations sometimes. I am very happy with this foundation. My skin is dry/combination. This goes on smoothly but it is not greasy at all. It just hydrates my skin. It does have a good amount of moisture so if you are very oily it might not be for you. I thought this wore pretty well throughout the day and evening. I did have to touch up my nose once because that gets oily. This gives such a natural look but it definitely improves the look of my skin.

Love it but.....
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I love this compact but for some reason I cannot find my shade (NC44) in any of the stores in my location nor online. So I'm forced to choose another product. Loved it when I could buy it!

Dry Skin Miracle!!!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
I started using Studio Fix foundation about 17 years ago and loved it but the last few years my skin changed (with age) and it just hasn't looked right. I went and tried a few other brands and they felt like paint...yuck! Then I saw this and said well let me try. So happy i did. My skin is so dry, I use moisturizer, mask, oils and couldn't find a foundation that wouldn't flake or feel like a layer a paint on my face. Thank you MAC you came through again!!!! :)

Has something changed?
I have used this in the past just not for the past 2 years... I loved it then and thought I'd buy it again for my upcoming wedding.... it wasn't what I remember. It caked up, didnt cover at all and left streaks... thought about sending it back but didnt know the return on items I've used... so I guess I'll keep it.

BEST HYDRATING FOUNDATION! Must have for dry skin!
Tags +Moisturizing, Long wearing, Buildable, dry skin
I love this foundation!!! I have very dry skin and during the winter I get bad dry patches on my cheeks and chin. But when I wear this my skin feels so soft and hydrated. It's a sheer to medium coverage but yet it's extremely lightweight. I forget I'm wearing foundation! You get a great glow to your skin. I do use a setting power on my nose and forehead so that it doesn't get too greasy looking.
I use this a lot for filming because it looks so natural and beautiful on camera and I use it for very dramatic looks as well. And because it comes in a compact it is so easy to take with you and to use when you're traveling. The only thing I hate about this product is the sponge that comes with it. I only used it once and I did not like how it felt on my skin and that it soaked up a lot of the project. So I threw it out and I use a travel stippling brush with this. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to people with oily skin. It may give you too much shine. But this is a must-have for me during the winter.

Great for a natural look
Tags +Long wearing, Moisturizing, Oil control
I LOVE this foundation! It's the only one that I will buy because it goes on smooth and doesn't even feel or look like I have any makeup on. My skin type is very dry especially in the winter time but this foundation does not dry out my skin. Instead, it leaves me with a dewy glow in all seasons.

Amazing for dry skin!
Tags +Moisturizing, Buildable
This foundation is exactly what I've been searching for. I have dry and dehydrated (but not very flaky) skin and wanted something with a dewy finish but that bronzer would still blend nicely over. i wanted to try cream since it seemed easy to apply. this has buildable coverage, a nice sheen that blurs imperfections nicely (pores, wrinkles) and a satin finish that keeps your skin feeling hydrated and soft all day. i think this product would be fine for normal or combo skin too as it's not terribly dewy. my bronzer and other powders blend nicely above, similar to when i apply to bare skin. it looks like real skin, but better. I'm not sure how this would perform over acne-prone, scarred or flaky skin, though -- I do have very good skin but large pores and hydration issues. i love this foundation over moisturizer. i would repurchase for sure -- i just wish it didn't have SPF! And yes -- it does run darker. I am usually 25-30 and in this I am 20.

So Sad!!

I absolutely loved this foundation. It was perfect for my dry, sensitive skin. However, they discontinued my shade a few months ago.

MIneralize Foundation
Tags +Long wearing, Moisturizing, Buildable, dry and/or dull complexions
Finally found the one that will give me the dewy look I've been trying to achieve for so long. My complexion is really dry and this one completely does the job of making me look dewy. I haven't been happy frankly for a long time - since Moistureblend - so this is just wonderful. I used the Strobe Cream which is a great boost and I still do use it under this. I was almost content with just the Strobe but was still not sure if I could make it even better and so glad I tried the Mineralize Foundation too. Healthy shine! Love it.

I have extremely dry skin and I hate cakey makeup. The color matches my skin perfectly and give me a natural finish. Heard it was being discontinued.... Hope it's not true

Perfect for men with dry(er) skin
Tags +Moisturizing, dry skin, men, discrete
Male with blotchy, dry skin..especially in the winter. Wear a lot of SPF year round so my skin is pasty white in the winter. Wanted to even out my skin but did not want to look like I was wearing makeup (obviously). Decided to try the mineralizing foundation in combo with bronzing powder and I'm very happy. This foundation goes on thin and even. Cool and hydrating. Will continue to use!

Best creamy foundation!!
Tags +Moisturizing, Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable, dry skin, glowing finish
I have very dry skin all year long and this stuff keeps me hydrated and gives me a great glow to my skin. It blends really well and you can do sheer to full coverage because it's so buildable. The only problem is the foam sponge it comes with, it's hard to blend using it. I use my fingers or a stippling brush depending on how heavy I want it to be. I also put the loose mineral powder on top as a setting powder. It's great for photoshoots or for filming!!

I talked to an artist on the chat and she recommended this particular foundation on my what I told her. I simply love it. I don't wear everyday, when I do I love the natural look.

Great formula
Tags +dry skin, Sheer Coverage
The formula is great for sheer coverage and even though it takes a few tries to build up coverage, it's worth it. I recommend applying this with a flat brush then topping off w/ Prep + Prime powder.

I use the darkest shade. Been using for two months now. By far the best foundation I ever used. Looks natural. Blends very well. Doesn't feel sticky or heavy at all.

Great foundation for dry skin!
Tags +Moisturizing, Buildable
As a 56 year old woman with dry skin, I always look for foundations that hydrate - obviously! I had used the pro longwear compact, but it was a bit drying for me and I had to be careful to use a primer with it. Not so with the Mineralize compact! It is perfect with just a light moisturizer under it. BEWARE - for me it ran a little darker than my usual NC35. I really had to step down to an NC30 which was perfect, I love a handy compact for portability and quick touch ups!
