What reviewers say about the MAC Face and Body foundation
“My skin glows like it hasn’t in years. No streaks, no collecting in pores or fine lines.”
“I love this formula for “no make up” make up days. The coverage is sheer to buildable and the finish makes my skin look healthy, hydrated, fresh, and glowy — not greasy.”
“I tried the NARS and Laura Mercier tinted moisturizers and Charlotte Tilbury’s flawless filter. None of them comes close to how fantastic this is. It minimized my pores, provided a light, even smooth coverage and looked flawless but completely natural. It goes on so smooth, like a moisturizer, and doesn’t emphasize dry areas on my skin.”
Who should buy MAC Face and Body Foundation
Buy this if you are looking for:
- sheer, lightweight coverage that won’t collect in pores or fine lines
- a glowy, second-skin finish
- waterproof formula that can be used on the body
Who should NOT buy this
Don’t buy this if:
- you need a lot of coverage
- you have oily skin
The MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation is a thin liquid that’s perfect for the no makeup look. It takes skin to the next level, delivering an ethereal glow that looks 100 percent natural.
I love this on days when my skin is dull and I want to look awake and glowy.
Thin formula that enhances normal, dry and mature skin
If you find most foundations thick and paint-like, then this foundation might be just what you are looking for. It has a thin, watery consistency that imparts a my-skin-but-better finish that is also surprisingly long-wearing.
Pair with a concealer for more coverage
For skin that requires a bit more coverage, try wearing this foundation with concealer. Any imperfection will be perfectly blurred without looking cakey.
Suitable for body use
The MAC Face and Body foundation is a waterproof formula that’s suitable for body use. It won’t rub off on your clothes and will last through sweat and water exposure. Great for summer days when you want to get your glow on everywhere!
