I just went and bought the Mac Pro Longwear Spf 10 Foundation in NC 30 yesterday. I've been having an extremely hard time trying to find a good foundation that fit my skintone. It's either too dark, too light, or too pink and orangey. I've tried mixing foundations yet I have too much yellow undertone in me that it never matches my neck.
I've used the Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC 30 before. It was just too heavy and cakey on my face afterwards and alot of people say the same thing. My skin is horrible, I am acne prone with extremely oily skin. I've had acne since 5th grade and it just continued to stay with me. I hate it!! I've tried literally everything that is affordable out there. Now Im Sticking to Clinique skin care line and its working pretty good on me.
So far it's still too early to tell about the foundation but I'm loving it already!
It's feels very lightweight on my face
Looks natural and flawless
Sheer-Med coverage buildable to Full coverage also
Controls my oil buildup (didn't have to touch up or use oil blotting sheets all day)
Transfer resistant (I wore my shades and foundation on my nose didn't smear or fade)
Up to 15 hrs wear (I've had it on for over 10 hrs and still looks fresh )
Comes with pump
Price is 29.50 US after tax it as around 31.00 US
Had to mix a little bit of a lighter foundation so it wasn't too orangey
All in all, I'm probably going to stick with this from now on. I was pretty surprised that literally after working and coming home to look in the mirror, my face wasn't shiny with oil. I love that! And that its transfer resistant! I usually leave foundation marks on anyone that gives me hugs, or just on my collared shirt/jacket. I really would recommend this!
Moving on to concealors!
The only bad thing about my face is that I have horrible blemishes all over my cheeks, t-zone area, and chin. I have to have full coverage concealor and foundation in order to conceal these awful blemishes.
I've used Mac's studio fix and studio sculpt concealors. Those are some pretty heavy duty concealors that actually worked at covering my blemishes. I just hated paying so much for the concealor. I go thru it like crazy since I have to cover my whole entire cheeks with it.
Now I've found an alternative concealor that is priced at such an amazing price.
Hard Candie's Glamoflauge Concealor in Medum has been my life savior!
Heavy duty coverage
Liquid formula (doesn't feel as heavy as concealors in pots)
Price range is from 6-7 dollars US
Tube contains .71 oz (almost 1 0z!)
Comes with concealor pencil ( you can use as highlighter for bow of lip and under brows)
Up to several months of uses ( i use it just about everyday)
Gets oily after couple hours (need to touch up with powder)
Has only 3 shades ( light, medium, tan)
Limited stock at Wal-Mart
All in all, this is a must have. It works for undereye circles, blemishes, tattoos just about anything you need to cover up. The price is soo cheap, compared to all the other higher brands out there. This would be comparable to Kat Von D's Tattoo Concealor.
I'm wearing both products in this picture and in everyday routines now.
Hope this was informational! Check it out and have a great day!
