MAC Face And Body Foundation C5 Review Indian Skin

Review Of MAC Face And Body Foundation In Shade C5...


Every once in a while you come across a product that sweeps you off your feet, makes you feel all special and pampered and as if it was made just for you. You then start feeling as to how had you been surviving all this while without it and why in the whole wide world did you take so long to pick it up... Well that product for me ladies and gentlemen is The MAC Face And Body Foundation. I am an NC 36-38 and I use the shade C5 in it... >>



I really cannot stop gushing about it. It's a boon for beauties with dry skin and for those who love a dewy finish. MAC Face And Body Foundation is a liquid foundation that is little runnier that other liquid foundations I have used. It gives a sheer coverage and hence if you are looking for a good coverage foundation then this isn't for you.

Because of it's sheer coverage it gives a very natural looking finish and hence can be used as a daily wear foundation if you don't mind the high price tag that it carries ;) The foundation comes in a squeezy plastic bottle container that has a nozzle top. Many people complain about the nozzle saying that it makes it difficult to control the amount of product that is dispensed. However, I pooh pooh the claims and say that it has never been an issue for me. It's just a matter of habit and well yeah practice ;)

The staying power of MAC Face And Body Foundation is just amazing. It stays on for than 8 hours very easily. I generally apply it at around 10:00 am in the morning and it is intact when I come home at around 7:00 pm. It withstands the dryness induced by the AC and it also stands solid in the afternoon sun without melting your makeup. However, it doesn't contains SPF making it an amazing product to get yourself photographed in ;)

The foundation is extremely light-weight and it is extremely moisturising. While I have a noticed a little bit of shine by the end of the day but it wont pose an issue for dry skinned divas. However, oily skinned girls may need a little of powdering in the middle of the day for shine control.

I generally apply it with a synthetic bristled foundation brush as opposed to a foundation sponge as I feel that a sponge would absorb more of the product especially since the foundation is in the form of a very runny liquid.

Price Of MAC Face And Body Lotion 

It costs INR 1770/- for  50 ml

Oooohhsss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Extremely lightweight.
2. Gives a beautifully natural finish.
3. Stays on for long.
4. Once set, it doesn't transfer.
5. Quite moisturisng.
6. Very easy to apply and hence leaves very little room for error in application.
7. Doesn not contain SPF and hence photographs well.

Ouches!!!
1. May not suit oily skinned girls and those who need heavy coverage.
2. Is on the expensive side :(

Repurchase?
Definitely! It's now my HG foundation and I wear it almost everyday to office :)

Recommendation:
It's definitely a must have for dry skinned women who are looking for sheer coverage and a dewy finish. Oilu skinned beauties may want to try it out first and then jump into buying it.

Overall Rating:
10/10

    1. awwwwwww thankoooooozzzzz so much Pari :D ♥♥♥
      hmmm combination skin can be tricky na... you could do one thing, since its a liquid foundation, you could ask the SA for a sample... MAC gives samples for liquid foundations cause I have asked for them always... do that and try it out for a couple of days... you'll be able to decide then :)

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
