Mac Foundations | My Personal Favorites

MAC Cosmetics is one of the most popular cosmetic brands in the world. They have different ranges of beauty products for every type of need. Let’s focus on my personal favorite foundations of the MAC Cosmetics…

When I was in high school, I used to watch a lot of beauty channels on YouTube talking about makeup tips, products etc. As a shopaholic myself, I couldn’t stop buying the products that they had recommended in the videos obviously. Especially MAC products were getting more and more popular between women so I listened to their recommendations. I purchased pretty much all the foundations of MAC Cosmetics back at the time.

   My first foundation from MAC was the Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation as I was looking for a foundation at least within a minimum level of SPF. I was getting aware of the fact that it is actually super important to protect your skin from UV rays. And then,  I have chosen this foundation because I was looking for a build-on one so I could have tested its coverage level as much as I could. Well, I do not have any skin problems. The result was as my skin is already super dry, it had made my skin even more dry. At the end of the day, I was able to see the breakouts that the foundation had caused.

So do I recommend it? Nope.  

This foundation made my skin really MATTE. It is good in terms of long wearing and coverage level. It is good for oily skin I would say or for models, celebrities on TV to not to be shining on the screen all the time. Other than that, in real life it covers yes and it stays for so long yes… But it did not give me the sleek&shiny look that I wanted obviously!

So do I recommend it? Maybe.

  I really like this foundation. Studio Fix series of MAC Cosmetics is really nice. It worths the amount you pay while buying! Personally, it gave me that soft and velvet look I had wanted at the time. For women with skin problems, I definitely recommend this series’ foundation+powder. It covers all the scars, acne etc. very well. Foundation does not look like you are wearing a mask on! It still has a matte finish but I like it because it stays for a long time, covers very well and looks very soft and natural.

So do I recommend it? Definitely!

And  coming to my favorite  foundation by MAC… Moisture SPF 15 Foundation. I have been using this one for almost a year now and I adore that. For night or daytime does not matter, it gives my dry skin a lot of moisture and shine! My skin looks healthy and glow when I put the foundation on. You can build it on your face and it stays for a longtime. So do I recommend it? Definitely! Lastly, everybody has different skin types and desires. These are my personal comments as I have a dry and sensitive skin. Also, my desire is to have a glowing and healthy look all the time. If this is also what you are looking for as well, I definitely encourage you to try them at least once!
