    Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

    This foundation feels like a light moisturizer when applied. Best way to apply this is with a dense, flatter synthetic brush and press into the skin. This will keep it from smearing and give the best coverage. Feels like a feather on the skin and gives light coverage. I have dry, non problematic skin with slight hyper pigmentation. This gives me a natural, radiant look and you cannot go wrong with MACs color selection. Doesn't smell like fragrance and packaging feels very nice. (maybe not the best for traveling).

    Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

    Okay, I'm going to be 100% real with all of you.
    I ordered directly from MAC (Before ulta began carrying the brand).
    I got this for the summer since i have very OILY skin, and I had wanted something that wouldn't CREASE in my laugh lines (looking at you urban decay). 100% MAC delivered on the laugh lines, and the oily skin. Now here's the caveat, its a lightweight formula, so guess what? Low coverage. Now, I have terrible rosacea, yes it did cover all of my redness. This foundation does however work best with MAC pro longwear concealer. I found that they just blend better than others (whereas many looked caked). So give it a shot, for the summer and for more natural beauty looks. And besides, it IS buildable, and in the heat you really shouldn't be cake-faced, that looks all messed up and you know it. I also use this in the winter, since more matte foundations (tarte, urban decay, estee lauder) make my t-zone dry (weird right for oily skin).

    I've used this foundation for 2 years and I love it.

          I feel like I wasted my money buying this because it makes my face so so oily. Right when I apply it, my face just gets so greasy. If you have dry skin, this product is for you. If not, stay awayyy!!

            Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

            Believe it or not I'm 50 years old and am just starting to wear liquid foundation. I've always been a powder girl (the good stuff though) but my maturing skin gets thirstier each year so thought I'd try it again. Absolutely love the MAC and I feel so good in in! I have lots of freckles and age/sun spots but I didn't want full coverage, just enough to even it out. I could definitely add coverage but for me a light layer is just perfect!

            Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

            I've been looking for a light coverage foundation for quite a while that goes on smoothly and looks natural and it's been really hard to find because my skin is kind of dry and doesn't take well to pigment. This one doesn't have that issue. It's a light coverage but it's decently buildable and most importantly, it's hydrating. I like how it gives a nice glow, too.

              I love that Ulta now sells MAC foundation, especially this formula. I stopped buying MAC because it broke my skin out but this formula goes on beautifully. I have dry, sensitive skin so I love the matte finish it gives my skin.

                  A:

                  The MAC Foundation Pump will not fit on MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 Foundation, and we do not recommend attempting to alter the packaging to make it fit.
