MAC Matchmaster Foundation :) - A Review (Finally)

I've been meaning to write this review forever. I really have. To be honest....LAZINESS is the reason why I haven't yet made this post before now. Not to necessarily write the blog but to take proper pictures of it applied to my post so that you can have a look see. I still don't have a 'proper' show and tell picture but I have been wearing it for a while and now feel ready to give a proper review.

I purchased this foundation when I flew to Virginia in October. I've been using it daily since then and to be honest, I have a few mixed feelings about it.
  1. love the coverage. It gives a very soft, natural finish with a demi-matte finish although I think it tends to get a little too oily too fast.
  2. It's not sweat proof!! It actually causes little beads of perspiration to appear on my fore-head and upper lip.
  3. It's a great match!! And I love this. It looks as if it has the tendency to run a little too red but once it applies it looks amazing!
  4. It's long lasting. Not pro longwear type of staying power but it definitely sticks around for most of the day.
Now I still prefer the MAC Pro Longwear. Of all the MAC foundations I've tried PLW is the best yet in terms of oil control and staying power. As a matter of fact, I wish PLW applied the way Match-master did as hat would make it THE most perfect foundation ever! And yes...I do have MUFE HD and I'm not 'that' impressed....review to come soon)

For the most part...I like it...will keep using it but it's not one of those 'I MUST repurchase' because I believe that there is better to be had. Dear MAC: if you could combine those two foundations, you would have hit the jackpot....at least with me lol

And the pic:) For reference, I'm an NC45 and I'm wearing a 7.0. My friend Sophie is on the left.

And another for good measure :)

My Christmas Wishlist

As per usual I'm making a list of the things I want to get before the year is out. I fly up to be with my guy 9 days (can you tell I'm excited? lol) and I'm making note of things I'd probably get for myself or show to him if he gets stuck! LOL. So here we go...

Love, ChloƩ
Love, Chloe is a celebration of radiant, generous, and spontaneous femininity. Its fine, powdery scent is contagious, a beauty that is free and graceful. This fragrance is inspired by the intimacy of the beauty ritual. It is a fine, powdery scent—light, sensual, and iridescent with talc and rice. 

 Urban Decay Naked2 Palette- No words needed :) I own the original...and told myself I didn't need this one...who was I kidding?


Return to Tiffany Bead Bracelet- I may get this myself....I've been eying this a while

 

I'm also in the market for a digital camera....I'm considering YT videos....at least for review purposes. I haven't seen one that catches my fancy yet though.


What's on your Christmas wishlist?
