I am generally a no make-up person; the most I use is just loose powder and a light blush. But lately, ever since I started planning my wedding, I’ve begun experimenting with a basic foundation and decided to try one of the best known and popular make up brands – MAC.

I suggest the best place to buy a genuine MAC product would be from the store itself (I found a store at the nearest mall). Although a lot of cosmetic stores may claim to have it, one cannot be sure of the genuineness of the product! Also, the girls at the MAC store will show you exactly how to apply the products you buy, which for a novice like me, is an added advantage.

I picked a lightweight water-based foundation — the MAC Face and Body Foundation. It is available in various shades and I got one to match my skin tone. Since it is a liquid foundation, you only need a couple of drops for sheer coverage. Using a foundation brush, one can easily blend this foundation onto the face and neck. The best part about the foundation is its consistency which is neither too thick nor too thin, and is just right. It sits easy on the skin without looking cakey. I have used it in winter with just the slightest layer of moisturiser underneath to prevent dryness. Here is a list of pros and cons of the foundation.Real Reviews: Mac face and body foundation

Pros:

  • Lightweight foundation
  • Water-based, does not dehydrate the skin
  • A small quantity goes a long way
  • Comes in various shades to match all skin tones
  • Long-wear foundation
  • Imparts a healthy glowing, almost natural flushed shine without appearing washed out
  • Comes in a clear plastic bottle with a screw on top – easy to use and quantity can be monitored so you know when you’re running out!

Cons:

  • The price: 50 ml for Rs. 1,500
  • Coverage is sheer to medium, so one may need multiple layers of the foundation for maximum coverage
  • A concealer may be necessary if the skin is acne-prone and uneven

As you see, there are more pros than cons, so you know where I stand! The MAC Face and Body Foundation is an excellent foundation if you are looking for something lightweight, breathable and long-lasting. While the price may be a putdown for some, only a very small quantity is required at a time. I would give it a rating of 8 out of 10 (just for the price)!
