Mac Face and Body foundation definitely isn't a secret in the blogging world. I'm forever seeing posts pop up ranting and raving about how wonderful it is but i have to say i never paid much notice, thinking it just wouldn't be for me with its sheer coverage and water base. Oh how i was wrong! My interest grew and grew and when i started trying out and loving lower coverage foundations just as my sister started working for Lauder, she was kind enough to get me a bottle on discount for me to try. (This is the amazing thing about her discount- it means i get to try things i would have shyed from before and discover favourites!)
Ok, so what is it actually like? The coverage is sheer and yes it's pretty watery but with a good stippling brush and a bit of determination, you can turn this into an amazing base for healthy, glowy, natural looking skin that's not overly dewy or shiny as can so often be the case with these types of products. I've been particularly enjoying wearing this when i have fake tan on and just need a little bit of evening out or when i'm having a casual foundation and mascara Sunday. I've also been mixing it with double wear to take advantage of the lasting power and higher coverage of double wear but take the drying/matte effect down a notch. It gives the perfect natural long lasting full cover base which for me is absolutely perfect. I haven't tried it on my body yet but i have a friend who swears by it so i'll be giving it a bash!
I was going to say that the foundation is also great value for money at £26.50 for 120ml which is insane considering usual foundations are 30ml and the same price. The sad thing is, i've heard they're discontinuing the 120ml bottles and the 50mls will be the only available and when they're priced at £20.50 it kinda seems like a bit of a rip off- only £6 cheaper for less than half the product!
What do you think? Have you tried Face&Body or are you more of a full coverage type?
-Easy to wear, doesn't stick or slip off the face
- Natural, glowy effect with just enough coverage
-Great for mixing with other foundations
-No smell or bad consistency
