Ever since ive started using MAC foundation I have not regreted it. This foundation is light weight, smooth, has medium to full coverage and is buildable without looking cakey. It doesn’t really have a distict smell to it (its a mix between makeup smell and paint but it has no smell once its set on your face). I also particularly like that this foundation doesn’t dry matte and it leaves your face looking dewy and fresh, however I would suggest a setting powder or spray because it is quite transferrable. This particular one comes with the pump lid which is really handy, I find that three full pumps is all you need for a full face application. It also comes in a wide variety of shades but I would suggest that if you are buying this for the first time to go to the MAC counter for the makeup artists to help you find your shade because trust me you probably wont be the colour you first thought you were looking at the online swatches and also because the colour names are really not helpful in identifying colours (e.g. NC42).I would definitely recommend this product.
