I've said it in my other reviews on cosmetics and I will say it again; I have very pale skin. If one with very pale skin wears a heavy foundation it is VERY obvious and the point of wearing make up is to enhance ones natural beauty, not to show off make up. MAC calls this a tint and not a foundation but it most definetly works as a foundation for me. It is light and dries to a clean finish. It is a light moisturizer and also has the added benefit of being SPF15. It works exactly as a foundation should and makes my skin look even and hides my pores.
One thing that is absolutely wonderful about this product is IT DOESNT CAUSE ME TO BREAK OUT! I can wear it every day and not worry about waking up one morning with horrid pimples with this foundation.
Go to an actual mac cosmetics counter to find the correct color for you, don't buy it online.
