MAC Face and Body Foundation Review

Evening all, I hope this post finds you well, its nearly the weekend! I can't wait for the weekend to be here, only one more week of this half term!  

The worst thing ever to happen to anyone happened to me a couple of weeks much loved foundation ran out, 2 weeks before payday and it's was either shop the stash or face the world without and potentially scare off small children!

To the stash I turned, searching for something that would give me just a little bit of coverage. Sitting at the box was a bottle of MAC Face and Body Foundation, this could be my saviour!

Face and Body is an incredible light coverage product that leaves a fresh, dewy finish to the skin. If you have fairly good skin, and just want a light coverage then this is the product for you, if you want more coverage then you can mix it with a tinted moisturiser for a thicker formula.

The consistency of the foundation is quite runny. From the picture below you can see that it is very thin...

A little bit really goes a long way, the small amount above spreads out like this...

It looks really shiny and greasy, but if you apply it to clean skin or a primer and allow it to dry, then it gives a lovely dewy finish. You can either leave it like that, or set it with a finishing powder, such as Benefits Georgia (now discontinued :( ) or something from MAC.

You can apply it in lots of different ways, either with a stippling brush, a foundation brush or your fingers. I tend to use a my stippling brush to apply as you get more of an airbrushed finish where as a foundation brush tends to put too much product on my face and leave it a bit too shiny! 

It gives a good even coverage, even on my skin which is combination. The problem area's I found are my eyebrows, it makes them look stuck on! 

It lasts all day, and comes off easily. You get a whopping 120ml for £25.50, which works out at £2.12 per 10ml which is great compared to my other favourite Maybelline Superstay 24hr foundation which is £9.19 for just 30ml or £3.06 per 10ml!

So a great foundation that has a place in my collection, and I'm sure many others. If you want more information, have a look on Youtube, there are loads of videos! 

Thanks for reading! xx


  1. Such good value, shame it's not a higher coverage! :)

  2. But if you mix it with like a tinted moisturiser then or is thicker. You can layer it as well to build coverage xx
