I cannot tell you how many foundations I have tried over the past 3 years. I can now add MAC to the list of brands that I really like for foundations. Iman and Graftobian are two other brand names who has really nice foundations for women of color.
On Saturday while I was at the mall waiting to see The Hobbit, I decided to look around in Macy's to pass some time. I ended up at the MAC makeup counter and ended up purchasing a tube of MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in NW50. I am loving it. This foundation does not break me out which is the fist plus. Secondly, it very moisterizing and leaves a satin finish to your skin. I used to love matte foundations, but as you get older I think it is better to use a foundation that is very moisturizing and leaves you with a dewy glow.
I also like the fact that it is medium to full coverage. It goes on very smoothly easily. A little of it goes a long way as well. You just need a tiny bit to cover you entire face, so for $30.00 it is very economical. I prefer to use a foundation that is more in the warm color spectrum. Anything lighter will make my skin look ashen.
