Fall 2012: M·A·C Face and Body.

One of my very first M·A·C foundations was Face and Body Foundation. I love the light and liquid texture.  I could never wear it one it's own, because I need more coverage than that. But, I would use that and then Studio Fix Powder over it and my face was perfect. Anyway, it is a wonderful water based formula that is one of the best I have ever used. M·A·C actually has an entire line up of shades just for beautifying, contouring and perfecting the face; it is the new and updated Face and Body.

The collection includes the Face and Body Foundation shades, four new Pro Sculpting Creams and how exciting is this, Pressed Pigments!

Three formulas: Face and Body Foundation’s water-based, anti-oxidant-rich liquid goes on smoothly for up to 8 hours of natural-looking wear. Pro Sculpting Cream, in two original and four new limited-edition shades, creates dimension and definition using natural tones. Lightweight, soothing and vitamin-rich. New Pressed Pigment in six, limited-edition, pearlescent shades are creamy and highly concentrated. Apply dry for a subtle and sophisticated translucent finish or wet for high-shine, dramatic dimension.

I like to apply this with my index finger and do some quick and swift blending. I apply it right beneath my brow bone and then on the very tops of my cheekbones, like I would any highlighter. It starts off very sparkly, but looks beautiful and actually more subtle than one would think after my face is totally blended.

The shade Spot Lit is also beautiful, in a warmer, more pink tone.

I love the MAC Face and Body Foundation. I think that contour creams would be handy. I currently use a a concealer in NW45 for that, but the consistency isn't right. I cannot wait to try one! Wish me luck. I'm heading out to the MAC pro shop this weekend.
I am interested in trying out this. Since I have fair complexion, these kinds of shades will definitely look good on me. I usually buy foundation with these kinds of shade but I haven't tried Mac Face and Body Foundation. Can't wait to try it out. I'll get back to you guys and let you know what my views in it.
I hope they extend this pressed pigment range, because I really need my favorites in this form.
I love MAC Face and Body! Are their new colors???
Pro-Scultping Cream sounds very useful. Like the reader above, I usually just use a much darker concealer, but it doesn't always layer so well and comes off. Knwoing MAC, this will be great and have staying power I bet.
You will love the Sculpting Cream, awt. Let me know how you like it.
Hi April! It would be great if they offered more pressed pigments. I love these as highlighters.
Diane - I don't think any of the actual foundations are new. The other products are the new ones.

Let me know if you try the Sculpting Cream and how you like it too.
I agree, Roni! These are very nice.
I like your idea of using the F&B and Studio Fix Foundation Powder. Would I be the same shade for both? I use the SF now, but would like a "base" layer.
Hi Karissa! I would check with a MAC artist to be sure. If you are ordering online, I would go with what your known shade for Studio Fix is. Good luck with it and let me know how you make out!
