Another Mac Cosmetics foundation review! I never thought I’d be into Mac foundations as I am now, back then when I wasn’t as invested in formula’s, finishes, coverage etc as I am now makes a huge difference.
As per the website:
A luxurious, creamy foundation that delivers ultimate hydration while instantly revitalizing the look of dull and dry skin. Innovative gel-based system provides outstanding skin feel and medium to full buildable coverage with a natural satin finish. Micronized silicone-coated pigments improve skin adherence and blendability while helping to maintain colour purity. Offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with SPF 15. Comfortable on all skin types, but especially suited for normal-dry and mature skin.

I chose the shade NW35 which matched me very well. The consistency/ formula is gel-like and thick. This is what makes it very moisturizing and hydrating.
I applied 2 layers with a sponge as a sponge is my preferred method of application. This blends into the skin very well and super fast. Because it is moisturizing it appears dewy on my skin with a luminous, healthy glow. For someone with dry skin like myself I love the formula and finish of this. It feels like a tinted moisturizer with more coverage and pigmentation. I tried building this up and it does not cake up or break up on the skin. This sinks in well and becomes one with my skin giving a natural, youthful appearance. It’s a life saver during the cold, dry months.
I’ve been wearing this often enough to know that it lasts all day, I can rely on this foundation for any occasion whether it’s going out for lunch or going out at night. At the end of the day my skin still appears radiant and natural. It’s a reliable foundation that I can reach for on a regular basis with basically no complaints.
I would recommend this to combination, normal to dry and dry skin. If you are oily I would recommend baking and carrying a powder to touch up during the day.
Contains 40ml/ 1.3 US Fl. Oz
