Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Poor Coverage

Best Uses

  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

I use it with a blending sponge. I should've read more reviews and watched more tutorials, but after a few uses it's really grown on me. I expected more coverage, but it's not supposed to be a full coverage foundation. It feels great on my skin and gives me a wonderful natural glow and base for contouring.

No coverage, greasy

Pros

    Cons

    • Beads/Pills
    • Difficult To Apply
    • Doesn't Stay On
    • Poor Coverage
    • Pricey / Poor Value
    • Too Greasy

    Best Uses

    • Sheer coverage

    Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

    This provides less than sheer coverage - essentially zero coverage at all. I was expecting something like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream, but it is neither of those things. It is very slick and greasy-feeling on the skin, and completely beads/pills up as you're trying to apply it. I tried with fingers, brushes, and sponges with no difference in the result. This is not buildable at all and the pigment just rolls up into little balls on the skin. Although the finish is very greasy to the touch, it catches on dry patches like crazy, pilling up all on and around it. It simply rolls around on the skin leaving little bits and chunks, I can't stress that enough. It also has a light but distinctive smell like kerosene. Although that goes away very quickly on the face, but you can still smell it a long time afterwards on your brushes and sponges. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this has no redeeming value for me at all. This was my first Mac purchase and it is probably my last.

      Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

      I LOVE this product! It is NOT a foundation, that is why it's name is NEXT TO NOTHING! Because that is an accurate description, it looks like you have nothing on...but it makes your skin look PERFECT! I would recommend it for someone who has good skin and just wants to even it out. It is SO natural looking.
      For someone who wants a light coverage foundation...this probably isn't for you. This would be for someone who wants a sheer coverage tinited moisturizer/bb cream type of a finish. It is definitely dewy! I am obsessed and I will never use anything else! I used to use Urban's One and Done, and just for reference MAC Next to Nothing has way less coverage than UD!

      Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

      Ok, I love my Mac products and was just chomping at the bit to get my hands on this...what a disappointment! It literally provides ZERO coverage. Perhaps if you have the perfect skin of a teen this may work, but for anyone else...skip it. You would have to use a ton of product to even see it. I suppose it may work as a primer for some..but honestly keep your money...come on Mac you can and and usually do much better!

        this is my favorite from MAC. It blends beautifully without that cakey overdone appearance. I have very sensitive skin and does not irritate at all. Sometimes this is all I wear with mascara and lipgloss

        I like it...but a couple flaws

        By Thea

        from MKE

        Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

        For the most part I like this. I got the shade light and it's rather orange/peachy but I make it work with a white foundation mixer. The biggest problem I have is that mine had a bunch of white flecks in it, not reflective but straight up noticable white flecks. They kind of disappear after wearing it for a while, but it's still a little annoying. I'll still keep using it because I love the finish of this, it makes my skin look so nice. I might pick up the light plus shade too to see if it works better with my skin tone.

          Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

          I bought this foundation in LIGHT as soon as MAC released it, but had to return it because it was too dark for me. I'd say it's less of a foundation and more of a tinted moisturizer. The coverage is amazingly light and gave such an amazing natural and radiant look while accentuating my freckles. BUT, I just couldn't wear it because of how yellow it was on me. For reference, NC10 is also too yellow for me and I usually wear Snow in Born This Way (which is a tad too orange). I also have sensitive skin and this did not make me break out.

          amazing

          By Bex

          from NY

          Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

          This foundation is fantastic! I was skeptical as I have oily/combo skin, but my makeup lasted 10 hours with little to no signs of fading. I used my normal routine underneath, which does not include a primer and I set it only with the "next to nothing powder" from MAC. I've only used it about a week, but I'm a convert! it feels so light on the skin and the coverage is actually perfect for me. I don't think it is going to be for someone looking to cover major blemishes or redness, but for someone looking to even skin tone or provide sheer to medium coverage it is a good foundation. And I know this might sound weird, but I love the smell of it....it does smell like almost all of the MAC foundations which most people hate, but for some reason I seem to like. Definitely glad I tried this.

            Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

            I got this in the shade light plus. It is the first foundation color that matches my true skin tone! This product is not meant to give a lot of coverage hence the name. It gives me just the right amount of color and finish for every day. I find my other powders and products layer very well on top of it. It is worth the money for sure.

              Comments about MAC Next To Nothing Face Colour:

              I love this face color and I jumped at the chance to buy it once it was released. I wear the shade light plus and am NC25 in studio fix. It's not a foundation it's more like a tinted primer as it acts as a hydrator and blurrs imperfections I'd say it's a satin finish so if you don't like a slightly dewy finish powder works just fine on top of it. It goes on easily but you have to wait a few minutes to see it work its magic. It makes a beautiful canvas for everyday wear or as a base for foundation and does not bead up when combined with multiple products. I do use a primer when I apply it but it works fine without. It's your skin but better in a jar!
