Review: 5 stars

M.A.C., where have you been all my life? I didn't rate it 5 stars because I haven't been able to provide the complete coverage that I'm looking for, but this is still the best foundation that I've used to date.

When I first went to M.A.C. to get color matched for my foundation, it was not a good experience. The makeup artist was horrible (she actually gave me the wrong product - powder instead of fluid when I made my purchase so I had to go back the next day). The foundation brush she was using was leaving brush lines all over my face. She first color matched me with a way too orange foundation for my pale skin. I made her go a few shades lighter, but it still felt dark to me. However, upon photographing my face, I realized that NW25 was a perfect match. I still haven't gotten used to it, but those nearest and dearest to my heart have told me that there's no distinction between my face to my neck. No dreaded neck line!

I just bought the Studio Fix Powder + Foundation tonight, so I haven't tried it out yet. Can't wait to see how it compares to the fluid. I heard it works awesome paired together, so I'm excited.
