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.
