It's rare that I repurchase makeup products, but this is one I've repurchased. I don't usually like a ton of coverage, especially on a day-to-day basis, and MAC F&B is everything that I look for in an everyday foundation - it's not *sheer* in the sense of "did I even put product on my face?". I would describe this as more of a sheer-light coverage that you can build to almost a medium. Does enough to even out the face and make it look healthy, but you'll need to rely on concealer to cover up any spots or pigmentation. The finish of this is absolutely gorgeous - it's luminous, and I've received many compliments on how glowy I look when I wear this! Despite that however, it's not *oily* - it does feel tacky when you first go to put it on, but this DOES dry down and lasts remarkably well throughout the day. I usually powder the centre of my face to tame down shininess there and it responds well to powder. My favourite way to apply this is with a buffing brush, and then I use my fingers to pat it in and make sure it really melts into the skin. Works well just with your fingers too. All in all, this is a foundation I see myself always keeping in my makeup stash, and I hope they never discontinue it!
A big bonus : C3 is a perfect match for me and if you've got yellow/olive undertones I would highly recommend checking out the C range of shades.
