My Holy Grail Foundation

44 comments


Foundations are something I have generally had a hate/hate relationship with in the past. With a clear, generally even complexion foundation doesn't really have much to offer, and in some cases it even made my skin look worse. My sister pestered me to try MAC's Face and Body and physically had to drag me to the MAC counter to pick up a sample because she knew it was exactly what I was looking for.

This is an ultra thin, yet very buildable, foundation. It's perfect for everyday wear but also, when layered and paired with the spot-concealing method, can create the most beautiful, flawless finish. It is a great one to have in your collection as it really is a foundation for all occasions and you don't have to think about it. There's no SPF, it's buildable and is as easy to apply as a BB cream.

What this foundation does so well is enhance the texture of the skin no matter what your skin is doing that day while also leaving it looking exactly like skin. Some foundations leave my moisturised and plump feeling skin looking dryer than it did to begin with, let alone when I have dryer areas. Because this foundation is water based, it leaves a really dewey finish that I usually like to powder down, and sometimes even add more coverage to with a powder foundation, but when I am feeling a glowy look I just powder the t-zone and it looks stunning.

I highly recommend this to anyone, except those who are really looking for that full, flawless coverage, as I do find my freckles show through no matter how much I layer this. This is the answer to all the BB lovers like me who haven't had much luck with foundation.

What is your holy grail foundation?

  1. I bloody love this stuff! Wouldn't go without it! I don't wear foundation on a daily basis but when I do, I hate that my skin no longer looks like skin. With this stuff it does though! Love it!

  7. That's the nice review. I haven't tried MAC foundation, but this one sounds interesting as I love light foundation and BB cream. Currently I'm using Le Teint Touche Eclat from YSL.

    First time reading your blog and simply love the beauty review :) Keep in touch!

  9. I've heard so many great things about this one, but I haven't tried it yet! Sheer and buildable sounds like my thing. I still can't get used to most full-coverage foundations. To be honest I don't think I've ever tried one on!

  14. I've been using Mac since three years but recently switched to L'oreal. Having different look now but pleasant as well. Both brands are worthy.

    Try this one too:

  17. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! This is very similar to a BB cream, but just that little bit more coverage. I definitely recommend it. x

  18. I can't get used to full coverage either! This one is a really great one because you can sheer it out for the day and get a medium coverage at night. x

  19. Definitely give it a go! I'm sure you'll love it. x

  20. MACs colour selection really is the best! x

  21. Definitely give it a go if you like the sounds of it! It's amazing. x

  22. It's so, so lovely! The sheer but buildable coverage is exactly what I was looking for. x

  23. You definitely should! There seems to be one for everyone, whether you want a sheer or fuller coverage. x

  24. This stuff was made by the angels, I'm sure of it!

  27. for all the people who have raved about this foundation, i've still never tried it myself. i think what happend was before i was ever into makeup properly i just used MAC studio fix and then when i discovered the big wide world of beauty and all the other options that are out there i decided i didn't care about MAC all that much, but i really should give some of their other bases a shot - more specifically this one, since i never really hear a bad word about it.

  32. This one is super easy to get colour matched too, it just sinks into the skin perfectly. x

  33. I feel like it's going to be the only one I wear for a long, long time. x

  34. I feel the same way about MAC, I'm not really one to fuss over it, but the thing about this foundation is that there isn't really anything like it available at the drugstore so it is definitely worth picking up. x

    ReplyDelete
  35. I feel like this would be something you like then, as it's the same kind of texture just a little thinner! x

  36. I love this foundation!!!
