MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation.

mac studio face and body foundation

Today, I’m going to talk about a product that is totally essential for an everyday makeup look and I’m pretty sure you have guessed it right and yes, of course, it is foundation. Plus, as we are residing in winter cold months, we can’t rely on just tinted moisturisers or BB cream alone just like in summer and for winter months, an ideal base needs to give a perfect coverage and a good foundation alone can give a quintessential answer to this query and my latest find on this category is MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation and so, let me get straight into its exquisite features which standout as a monopoly from its peer competitors and so, stay tuned!

First of all, the product is from MAC and so, we always have some positive expectations about their products as they deliver high quality makeup without a fail and this product is not in exception either as it works brilliantly well and ticks all the boxes of formulation, texture, consistency, application, coverage and many more.

MAC always keeps their packaging nice and simple and it comes along with a squeezable bottle with a pointed hole to the top where the formula is easy to dispense and so, you can have a control on how much to dispense for each use and the bottle is covered up by a sturdy black top and overall, a very effective packaging.

Formulation is the key to any foundation and Mac has literally nailed it with their amazing light weight formula which is very comfortable to use and the fluid consistency is ideal to work along with either beauty blender or foundation brush and furthermore, what makes this product to be even more special is, it comes along with added emollients which brings out a perfect moisturisation while you wear. Moreover, it gives a low to medium coverage which brings in its versatility as an everyday use and so, if you are looking for a natural and sheer finish look, then this is the perfect choice for you. Also, it is available in 13 shades which gives you a good selection of fair, medium to dark skin. Besides, the formula also promises a long-lasting staying power and ideal to use on all kinds of skin types and what else could you ask for, isn’t it? So, all-in-all, it gives a perfect, complete, non-cake-y foundation and satin finish look.

I should say 2016 was the year of Estee Lauder as I have tried so many makeup products from them and every new product that I use, it always surprises me and one among them is my Travel friendly Luxury Eyeshadow Palette which I have used all throughout the Spring as their neutral tones are ideal to use on a no-makeup makeup look and their compact set is ideal as a versatile travel staple.

I love this TBS Cuban Watermelon Blush as it brings in a subtle sheen to my cheeks instantly and you know, winter is the season of blushes and so, having one of them is a must-have staple right now.

I totally agree that 2016 was the year of lips as there were so many new products for lips on the market and me not in exception either as I have tried so many varieties of them and one among the best is Estee Lauder High Gloss which is quintessential to wear on its own or just above the lipstick.

My Trip To MAC Beauty Counter.

 

 

MAC Cosmetics

Well, this week has been extremely busy for me with hectic work schedule and to bring a relaxing environment far away from the hustle and bustle, I ended up landing onto the MAC counter and I know you would certainly agree with the fact that how much satisfaction one could able to get by glancing around the MAC counter. It is the place where there is atleast one product that is suitable for everyone’s need. Whether it is a foundation or a concealer or a BB cream or a CC cream or a bunch of makeup brushes or a makeup product- just you name it and they have it.

If you are a beginner to high end beauty products, then trying out products from MAC counter would definitely gives you an unmissable experience as their products are always rated high and you could also able to research for multiple reviews on online as well. Furthermore, for years and years, MAC products have been used extensively by famous people including from makeup artists to top models and from bloggers to beauty lovers and so, quality is a predominant thing in here and that’s why it is named as a trust worthy product.

 

MAC Cosmetics

How does the MAC beauty counter looks like?

If you are a debutant to MAC cosmetics, then you will be blown away with the well organised display of their products and you could easily able to identify the items without having any help as there are separate sections for each of the categories that includes foundations and concealers to one part of the beauty counter where as makeup products to other designated separate areas; plus, particularly, if you are looking for makeup brushes, then you could easily able to spot those gorgeous beauties along the mirrored shelves that are stacked up to excellence.21mar2

MAC Cosmetics

The main reason why I popped into MAC counter was to try out their exquisite foundation as my older one was nearly running out and so immediately after entering into the MAC counter, I was glancing around to see all the various possibilities that I could opt for. Then, just less than a minute, a lovely lady called Debbie has requested if I need any help and I jumped into the offer right away and asked her about what to choose from. Later, she checked my skin tone and asked to sit on the chair that is placed right in front of the mirror where she could flawlessly able to test and try some of the foundations that matches my skin tone.

Test & Try:

First of all, she started with two different foundations and she tried each of them on my face using the splendid foundation brush and finally, she figured out my best match. Hurray! *Happy Dance* I can’t praise enough of the outstanding service that I got from the counter and yes, of course, it is an unmatchable service.

Sample Testing:

Just like icing on the cake, I’ve asked her whether I could able to try the product before making a purchase and without a second thought, she grabbed a small glass pot and squeezed some of the foundation content into the pot. Voila! Finally, I got the sample which I could make it as a trial version to test the results. Last but not least, it is not only the counter alone that look so fabulous but also their foundation too as I’m so glad with the texture, consistency and the sweet smell of the formula. Also, not to forget, it carries a bit more hefty price tag but a small blob is good enough for a single use and hence, a little goes a long way.

Have you ever experienced the amazing service while you are in any of the beauty counter? If so, drop me and share some of your amazing personal experiences with me. Happy Monday all!
