What the brand says: A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium-buildable coverage with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15. Comfortable and long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. Applies smoothly, builds coverage quickly and easily. Contains specially treated micronized pigments and soft-focus powders for a super-smooth look that helps minimize the appearance of imperfections. Absorbs and disperses oil. Contains special skin-conditioning ingredients. Oil free.
Packaging: The foundation comes in a sturdy glass bottle with a black coloured velvet textured screw-cap. The bottle is quite heavy and bulky yet travel friendly.
Texture: The consistency of foundation is very thick but it spreads quite easily- you only need to be quick in blending as it dries quickly.
Shade: If you ever visit MAC store, you will see one entire section of foundations with a lot of different shades for every skin tone. I got the shade NC 42 since NC 40 looked a bit off-shade because it made my body colour look different than the face colour, NC 42 worked very well because of its prominent yellow tone.
Fragrance: I don’t know what this foundation smells like but it is certainly not pleasant! It won’t bother much as it vanishes once you are done with application.
How I use and staying power: I use this foundation every single time I have an outing or every time I have click pictures. Any picture you see on the blog, I have this foundation on. It is that good! To use, simply take a small amount on the damp beauty blender, dot it on your face and tap-tap until well blended. The foundation settles into a matte finish which I love since it helps control any shine on my T-zone. This shade matches my skin tone so well, you won’t be able to make out if I have applied a foundation or not! It hides all my imperfections like spots, tiny blemishes and to some extent light acne scars and gives a smooth flawless finish. The foundation literally stays all day long and is perfect even if you have to be out in hot and humid weathers. This is my go-to foundation and I don’t think I will ever give up on this!
