MAC Face & Body Foundation Review Swatches Photos

MAC Face & Body Foundation (50 ml for Rs 1700) available at MAC Stores

I love wearing makeup but at the same time prefer it to look as natural as possible. I don’t like suffocating my skin with heavy foundation everyday. For everyday one should have a foundation which can give most natural looking finish! MAC Face and body foundationAs per MAC website

A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body.

MAC Face & Body Foundation comes in 12 shades. Unlike regular MAC foundations they have been categorized in “C” & “N”  .. I am NC44 in other MAC foundations and was matched to C6 for Face & Body.MAC Face & body foundationThese are water based so ideal for all skin types. The texture is bit runny unlike MAC Studio Sculpt, almost has the consistency of a regular moisturizing lotion.

I like to dab it across my face and blend with fingers. It blends and sinks into the skin quickly, without feeling heavy. MAC Face and body foundation reviewIt gives sheer finish, that can be compared to a tinted moisturizer with bit more coverage. Finish is dewy & luminous. There are days when I leave it without powdering my face. Its great for those who want to wear foundation to work without looking too made up. I have dry skin and this feels really comfortable throughout the day!MAC Face and body foundation C6 reviewIt provides the most natural looking finish which means it evens out the skin but doesn’t cover blemishes. I use a bit of concealer under my eyes to cover up the darkness and i am good to go !! MAC Face and body foundation C6MAC Face & Body Foundation Review stays on whole day long and doesn’t oxidize (gets darker). It has a citrus smell. I somehow find it turning sticky after sometime.

It can be layered up to build coverage, let the first layer dry on your skin then apply the second layer. it does feel wet but dries up quickly. If you love ‘no-makeup’ look this is ideal however if you want more coverage, then this might not be the best option.

Oily skin girls might find it too shiny, but that shine goes once you powder your face. However I would advise you to test and try it before buying full size product. Also some may find the formula sticky too.

That’s how MAC Face & Body Foundation looks on me (I haven’t powdered my face)MAC Face and body foundation review and swatches
