Review: MAC Face & Body Foundation

Hi Glamifys!

I’m back from London and managed to get a hold of the face & body foundation from Mac.

Please note that this foundation is not available in Singapore. Bummer!

It comes in 2 sizes and the bigger bottle cost £27. That’s roughly $54-60 plus depending on your exchange rate.

My shade was C5 which is an estimated equivalent to the following:

The face and body is a sheer coverage foundation. It is buildable at the most to medium coverage. The consistency is extremely liquidy and goes on like nothing on the skin.

For those with acne scaring and pimples, this may not be suitable as it does not offer much coverage. However, if you have almost perfect skin and wanted a foundation to balance the skin tone out, this would be a great choice.

It gives a dewy finish and may not be all that suitable for oily skin after all.

What I do like about this foundation is that it feels incredibly light and breathable on the skin. I would probably use this on a day where I wanted my natural skin to shine through.

It comes in a handy plastic bottle and a squeezey tube. Due to its liquidy viscosity, the packaging could be slightly improved. The insides of the bottle cap and nozzle got a little messy after awhile.

Here is a before and after picture. Note the little red scar I had at the bottom of the picture.

With all the traveling and stress, my skin broke out really bad last week. It was probably contributed by the hotel linen which I may have been sensitive to. So what better way to make a negative situation positive.

Haha

Here is a before and after picture of the face and body foundation on myself. Bare face. No other makeup on 🙂

My skin tone is more even although the scars and acne was not concealed as well as I had wished.

Next review will be on the Mac match master foundation which is my current favorite !!!

Cheers,
