I have been using MAC Face & Body foundation on and off for about 2 years and thought it was about time to write a review on this stuff!
This was one of my first ever foundations from MAC and it’s one i steer away from but then when i go back to using it, i remember why i love this foundation so much!
I tend to use this on my ‘good skin’ days because it is such sheer coverage and almost looks as if you have nothing on! This foundation really looks like natural, luminous skin and no one can tell if you’re wearing foundation or not!
MAC Face & Body looks like my skin but even better! That is one of the reasons why i love using this on shoots too.
I have never come across any foundation like this apart from the Makeup Forever Face & Body Liquid Makeup.
It can be built up for more coverage and can also be used on the body. I find this foundation isn’t great for people who want a matte finish because this one leaves the skin with a dewy finish.
One of the reasons why i love this foundation is because it ‘sets’, which helps the foundation last much longer on the skin. It is transfer and water resistant, making it a fab foundation to use in the warmer months or if you’re on holiday!
It is a water based foundation and makes it suitable for most skins but especially combination and oily skins. This puts hydration back into the skin without any oil, so you don’t need to worry about looking like a slick mess!
The consistency is very runny and light and is the complete opposite of MAC Studio Fix Fluid. If you are wanting to build this foundation up for more coverage, i suggest you apply one layer and let it set (takes about 10 seconds) and then apply another layer until you get the desired coverage.
This is one of my favourite foundations for flash photography, as there is no flashback! Hoorah!!! Looks amazing in natural light too!
There is a huge colour range from MAC and i believe they now offer 2 sizes of the Face & Body Foundation. I have the 120ml at home and i personally think it is such great value for money.
What do i think overall?!! I think my whole blog post implies that i love this stuff!
