not creasing

great for a natural look, goes on easy, and makes it look like i'm not wearing any makeup, but evens out my skin tone and decreases redness

- Macy's User

doesn't cake, doesn't settle in line/pores, dewy finish, makes your skin look healthy

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i also have large pores but this product doesn't bring attention to that, it goes on smoothly and it looks super natural whilst letting your skin breathe

- M·A·C User

it looks very natural and almost lasts an entire work day (9 hours) it fades without sitting into my pores

- Nordstrom User



i love how lightweight it feels

- Maccosmetics User

it is not a heavy coverage; it is light but for me who has never been able to wear any brand of the lightest foundation (and believe me i have tried them all) a few drops of this and one drop of foundation is perfect

- Maccosmetics User



very light on the skin, easy application, build able for a heavier coverage, gives a nice dewy finish to the skin, let's skin breath

- Maccosmetics User

the color was perfect for my skin - and very buildable

- Nordstrom User



not sure how they've done it, but this foundation is moisturizing, non-greasy, leaves you with a slightly dewy finish, and looks incredibly natural

- M·A·C User

it dries down to a natural satin finish that looks like healthy skin

- M·A·C User



it brightens my complexion evens out my skin tone and is such natural wear foundation you don't look like a face full of makeup

- M·A·C User

it's very radiant and dewy without giving that "greasy" look

- Maccosmetics User


blends well

it’s easy to apply and blends to perfection

- Nordstrom User

it looks like skin, it's got a beautiful finish, it blends so easy and it lasts all day long without breaking apart

- Ulta User

water resistance

water resistant

this is sheer but still makes your skin look even and healthy, it gives a very dewy look to the skin and its water resistance is a major plus if you live on a humid climates

- Macy's User

pros: long wearing, lightweight, waterproof, non- comedogenic, and natural

- M·A·C User

staying power


doesn't give full coverage but is buildable and the artist in store suggested mixing it with pro longwear concealer where i want/need more coverage, works great

- Maccosmetics User

paired with prep and prime original primer, it lasts all day long

- Maccosmetics User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

it doesn't oxidize or look cakey as the day goes on, but it stays put, which is really nice too

- M·A·C User

i have a combination skin with oily tzone and dry sensitive patches that can occur and this really balances my skin out when i wear it, it doesnt budge, rub off or discolour or oxidize with your natural skin oils, in fact my tzone never gets oily when wearing this

- Maccosmetics User



it’s lightweight, you don’t feel it on your skin, is sheer yet evens out your skin tone, smooths out your skin texture, leaves such a lovely and natural glow, and is so undetectable that no one will ever see that you’re wearing foundation - which, in my opinion is the goal of make-up

Not worth it

One star for bottle design, very convenient and watery formula was good to use with fingers. One star for the foundations appearance of natural skin, even with a bit of powder. - Minus one star for horrible pine/citrus smell. It was overpowering and made my eyes water. I wish this was mentioned before I purchased. - Minus one star for staying power. I expected this foundation to set (my skin is combination) and it never did, even on my dry areas. My face felt slippery even after an hour and with powder. This foundation seems to really only be made for dry/very dry skin. Would be terrible in the summertime, I expect it would be very melty. - Minus one star for coverage. I expected a light coverage, but after applying twice with letting the foundation "dry" in between, I barely had any coverage at all. It's really meant for skin that doesn't really need foundation. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-865891719735625923-full" data-show="-865891719735625923-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

I cannot stress this enough at how lovely this foundation is!If you are someone who doesn't have that bad of skin, it will be perfect for you. (acne scarring etc, this wont cover for you)It is a light weight foundation BUT when i was researching reviews for this product everyone had said more or less that it was very light coverage...i disagree. Yes, it's not a full coverage foundation BUT from 1 coat (i use 3 squeezes) i get an evened out coverage and dont feel the need to apply anymore! I dont even need concealer after ive applied this foundation! but i add a tiny bit because i just feel complete wearing it after haha.It is quite dewy when applied but after it sets it does go a tiny bit matte i think..dry skin? amazing. oily? i think if you're REALLY oily, dont go for this. if you're not to bad on the oily scale, just make sure you prime/powder, i powder and i have normal/dry skin and the finish is unreal.I used to love full coverage foundations so if you're like that, swapping to a foundation like this will be weird, you probably wont like it at first but the more you work with it and wear it, you will love it. obviously each to their own, but if you're debating whether to buy this, just ask for a sample or go out for the smaller bottleIm definitely going to buy the 120ml when my smaller bottle runs out, buy it!!Yes this is a long review but i know when purchasing a new foundation thats on the higher price scale you would want the most information about it from other people who have tried this.Pros:Evens out everythingThe finish is so so nice like it doesn't look cakey at allEasy to work with, i use a real techniques buffing brush but you could use your hands, i tried but i just hated itNo smell to itCons:I wouldn't say it takes long to set..but i do kinda wait a minute or so for it to set properly then i can conceal powder etc but not a big con(The only con!!!^)Hope this has helped anyone wanting to buy this product. You wont regret it x Less

My go-to foundation

I have been using Mac Face & Body Foundation in N1 for just over a year now and despite trying other foundations I always end up coming back to this one.I have very fair skin and struggle finding foundations that are a) light enough in general and b) do not have a hideous orange/pink undertone to them. I use this almost every day on my face and it has not caused my skin to break out or my pores to become clogged - a big concern of mine as I've suffered from severe acne in the past.I cannot comment what it's like on the body but I imagine it would give a slightly more "airbrushed" effect to the skin, without appearing like you are wearing any make-up - I might try it on my legs the next time I dare to bare my legs in the British weather...!My only slight disappointment with this product is that it is very dewy on my slightly oily skin. I use a light dusting of Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light over the top to mattify. These two products work really well together to give a flawless finish with a "no makeup-makeup" look. If you like the dewy look it would be fine without the powder (personal preference and skin type obviously playing a role here).The coverage is most definitely light, but slightly buildable. I only tend to use one layer (applied with my fingers) but if you allow the first layer to 'dry' for about 5 minutes, you can layer another one on top. I only tend to do this if I'm on a night out and photos are likely to be taken. Due to how light the coverage is I use Mac's Pro Longwear concealer in NW15 after I have applied this foundation, before I set it with the MSF, for my under-eye area and any blemishes that are still visible. This combination of products, despite being from different 'ranges', work really well together.Overall, a fantastic product which I can only recommend you try for yourself. Less

I've been with MAC since it's start as a Pro MUA I've worked with many brands of cosmetics and all of MAC foundations. I don't know why it had taken me so long to work with this wonderful foundation. First, it's sheer, but buildable to a medium finish with great results.Its blendable and quickly tacks a bit, so apply it one area at a time with a brush or fingers and magic happens! work with it and wrinkles and lines are filled and soften and fine lines disappears.Coverage is medium with a second layer but not mask like.My pores are large and oily in the T- zone... Face and Body will minimize them and smooths out your complexion to an even, radiant finish. My clients over 40 love it and have switched from full-coverage to F/B with concealer for areas that needed more coverage...a wonderful change from trying to hide aging to embracing it with beautiful result it brightens a dull complexion mix it with a little of Mac Strobe lite cream.Use powder and fix+ to set. Shades are very good. Con: it transfers! Pros: no SPF.. Women of Color I highly recommend it. Shake Well and keep in a Cool Place. Great for Hot Flashes it won't melt!! long lasting. Pour some in sample container and its good to travel in purse. No breakouts,easily washes,or tissues off. Great for Photos and Selfies.Great for Rosacea, Hyperpigmentations, can be used as a foundation base with or without primer I find that oil-free primers work best for T-zone,and Prep-n-prime works too.Use little or no moisturizer for combos. Moisturize skin for dry. Try it! Love it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

My Holy Grail Foundation!

This is the most natural looking foundation that i have ever used, which is why, i love it so much. As, i don't care to wear heavy, masky foundations on a regular basis anymore, as it just isn't best for my skin overall. If i do wear a full coverage foundation, it is for special occasions only now, otherwise, this is the only foundation that i wear on a regular basis at this time and definitely will continue to do so, as long as MAC keeps selling it. I like that it's lightweight, doesn't break me out or irritate my skin in any way, plus, it is very long-lasting, and i happen to live where the climate is hot and humid almost all year round, and it holds up through such. And, i don't experience this foundation transferring all over the place like alot of other foundations do, plus, i have gotten my face wet while wearing this foundation and it never budged. Even though the foundation does have a runny consistency to it, i do find it very easy to apply with a brush to my face, and i am able to layer it without any issues in order to get the level of coverage i desire. In regards to my skintype, during the Fall and Winter Seasons, my skin goes from being dry to very dry. And, during the Spring and Summer months, my skin is dry, combination. I also have acne prone skin, and i suffer with seborrheic dermatitis that happens to flare up just about any time during the year. I find this foundation to blend seamlessly into my skin wirhout there being any type of sharp contrast between the color on my face and the color on my neck and the rest of my body. As, somehow, the color that i wear in this foundation, C2 just works perfectly for my light-medium skintone. With this foundation, it has a very, faint citrus smell, that immediately goes away soon after application. So, this foundation does not have any strong or offensive odor to it at all.Now, before you apply this foundation to your face, it is very important that you shake it real well, because this foundation does slightly separate, due to its very unique formulation. However, after you give it a good shake, then the foundation is all good to go. And, unlike alot of other foundations that i have tried, this foundation doesn't oxidize on me at all. And, even though it is designed to provide a satin finish, i have not experienced any issues with this foundation making my face look super dewy or super shiny looking at all within a few hours or truly anytime at all during the day. It just leaves this very slight hint of dewiness to my face, which i like, because no one is born with a super matte looking face anyways. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

A good dewy foundation is the Mac face and body. However it’s pretty dewy, and it’s also waterproof and good for oily skin. I would recommend just setting it with a powder in the areas that you don’t want too much shine.

Mac face and body. The texture is not for everyone and you really have to work it into your skin with your fingers, but it is so dewy and skin like and it never looks cakey! It has light coverage that can be built up to a solid medium with a second layer. I have tried so many foundations over the years and I always come back to this one! It’s stunning!
