      Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

      I have dry skin in the winter and was looking for a foundation that would be hydrating. This was recommended to me, the shade match is perfect and it is definitely hydrating. I wore it for a full day and had no cracks. I wish it had a bit more coverage but I have no other complaints.

        Comments about MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation:

        This product is for high definition photo shoots, MAC is a great brand but I wouldn't recommended this product for everyday use. It stays on very well, but unfortunately for me, it reacted bad with my skin, causing break-outs and blemishes, which didnt make sense considering I wash and moisturize my face everyday. I have extremely dry and sensitive skin, so finding foundations that cover and don't react with my skin are really hard.

              I was really excited to try this foundation. When I got it I was so disappointe; the foundation does not blend well, makes your face look cakey (I didn't use much product) and is way over priced.

                        This might sound like a really dumb question but how do you put foundation on with a dropper?

                          A:

                          That's a great question, Jodi! We suggest using the dropper on MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation directly onto your makeup brush, sponge, or hands before applying. What's unique about this is that you can control just how much product you're using at a time. Let us know what you think!

                        Would you consider this a matte of dewy fiish? I tried a tester and felt despite its lovely consistency it looked a bit matte and masklike.

                          MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation is a hydrating foundation that controls oil. The natural finish lies in between matte and dewy.

                          Hi Saumya! With MAC NC40 Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation, we suggest going a half shade lighter for your Concealer colour. Try NC35 for a great match!

                          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.
