Hello lovelies! At around Easter, I made my first MAC purchase and it was this: the Studio Waterweight Foundation, which I’m totally in love with!
First of all, let’s talk packaging! MAC’s latest member of their foundation family is housed in a stunning frosted glass bottle with a pipette applicator. The bottle holds 30ml and looks fabulous sitting on a dressing table, however it’s heavy and fragile, so not the best option if you travel lots.
The formula is very runny and application can get messy, however I don’t mind because the finish is lovely: very skin-like because it’s neither matte nor dewy, which is just what I’m after. The coverage is light, similar to that of a BB cream, but it’s buildable because no matter how much you slap on, you’ll never look cakey!
This foundation contains SPF30, so is the perfect everyday foundation, however, it maybe isn’t the foundation to wear if you know you are getting lots of pictures taken i.e. a wedding because there may be flashback. The longevity is good and it lasts about 6 hours on my combination skin as long as I set it with powder. It wears away evenly, no patchiness whatsoever.
Now, the price. MAC is expensive and the foundation set me back £25.50, which is a lot but it will last me ages and it’s the best I’ve ever tried.
I’d reccomend this foundation to people with good skin that have very little to cover and also to people who are after a natural, your-skin-but-better finish. Maybe if you have oily skin though, avoid this as it feels quite greasy and hydrating!
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this review! Let me know if you’ve tried MAC’s Studio Waterweight and what you think of it! Do you love it as much as me?
