Actual Product Pic:

Pigmentation & Color:

This foundation comes in 23 shades - 12 NC shades (more yellow) and 11 NW shades (more pink). I personally find their NC shades quite yellowish, so i went with NW20 instead of the usual NC shade! This foundation offers medium coverage, but it's buildable! :)

This is how it looks on me:

It evens out my complexion nicely, and did neutralize the redness on my face. It also gave a lovely glow!! Me loves!! :D

Texture & Scent:
This foundation is quite "mousse" like, and it spreads really well on my skin! It has a horrible plasticky scent, but it's mild so i guess its not that bad!! haha!! :P


This foundation comes in a squeeze tube with a twist off cap, which i like cuz it travels quite well! I also like the size of the dispensing hole - it's just nice to control how much product you squeeze out! :D

And the box it came in:

Time Test:
This foundation lasted the entire day on my face! :D

Price & Availability:
This concealer is priced at US$29.50 / RM120 and is available at all MAC stores / counters as well as their website! :)

My $0.02:

I tried this one out at my counter when i checked out the Well Defined collection along with the Studio Sculpt concealer, and am pretty impressed with it! :D

This is probably my favourite MAC liquid foundation! I'm not very fond of the other MAC LFs because they're kinda thick and they look quite artificial on my skin, but this one's different!

Since it spreads on quite easily, you can control the amount of coverage you desire, so no more mask like foundation for me! I'm also kinda addicted to the glow this one gives me!! hehehe!! :D

The only thing i didn't like about this one is that it doesn't offer any oil control. I find that i have to blot once after half a day or so, otherwise my t-zone will look abit greasy (strange... i'm not even oily to begin with!)! So oily skinned babes may want to apply a mattifying base under this one!

All in all i really like this one, and would repurchase if i run out! :D
