A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body.
MAC’s famous Face and Body Foundation comes in 12 shades. This is a water-based, water-resistant, natural-coverage foundation. The shade depicted below is C2.
This foundation comes in a large, plastic, squeeze-tube bottle with a twist-off cap.
MAC’s Face and Body Foundation has a very thin, watery formula. At most, you will get light coverage. Any discoloration or spots will need to be covered with a concealer.
The finish is slightly dewy without being oily or shiny. If you have oily skin, you will certainly want to set this foundation with powder. It won’t keep any oiliness at bay as the day goes on.
But the foundation otherwise wears beautifully. The look it gives your skin is 100% natural. It’s lightweight so you don’t feel like there’s anything on your skin. It doesn’t discolor or become patchy or grimy as the day goes on.
MAC claims that this foundation is water-resistant, which is absolutely true. The foundation causes water to bead on top of it, effectively resisting any washing-off effect of water.
The shade C2 is perfect for neutral or yellow undertones and should suit skin colors NC15-25.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
This foundation goes on like water. You have to be careful about dispensing it out of the bottle since it’s so runny. I’d suggest squeezing the product out onto a palette and then picking it up with a brush. Make sure to shake the bottle first.
The foundation spreads over the skin effortlessly and sinks into the skin like a face cream without leaving any streaks behind.
This foundation costs $33.00 and contains 4 fl oz (120 ml) of product. This is an incredible amount of product for the price you are paying. You will probably use more product than you would with a higher-coverage foundation, but the bottle will still last you a very long time.
