M·A·C Matchmaster Foundation.

Have you heard about the latest foundation from M·A·C? When I got the information, I was excited as I have always been a huge fan of the M·A·C foundations. When I finally tested out a sample, I was more than excited to tell you about Matchmaster Foundation ($32.50).

Making its debut last week, this range of 14 colors will have you re-think your makeup. Matchmaster comes in the following shades, which actually matches many of the M·A·C shades. 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, 4,0. 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 9.5, 10.0. Darker skinned gals will be really happy about the darker shades available. A M·A·C artist will definitely be able to find your shade just by knowing what M·A·C color you usually use.

M·A·C says:

Who doesn’t want a foundation to look as real as your skin tone? With our All Races credo, we’ve redefined what a perfect match should be thanks to the NEW Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation. Simplified, this technology uses translucent pigments to create a formula that enables a fully personalized finish influenced by the subtleties of your own skin tone. 

Adding to Matchmaster’s true-to-life appeal is its moisturizing demi-matte finish, medium buildable coverage, and line-reducing soft-focus powders that help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the fact that this formula reduces excess shine-creating oil, and who could resist?

Matchmaster has the ability to resist humidity and perspiration without losing its smooth skin feel. Launching with a spectrum of 14 light to deep dark shades and making its debut on counter with the 193 Angled Foundation Brush and 190 Foundation Brush… isn’t it time you met this match?

I find Matchaster particularly on trend for fall and winter as the look is more on the matte side, but not too matte. I would say it it more of a matte/satin shade, As it cover, skin still shows through, but flaws covered, if that makes any sense. You see, it covers, but looks like real skin as it does so.  As I like a medium coverage, this one suits me.  I am NC30 in the summer and NC20 in the winter. Because I am in between seasons, especially starting to let my tan fade out, I have been mixing a squirt of 2 and 3 to get my shade.

I am anxious to hear what you think about this new one. I find it more on par with higher end foundations (Armani, Dior) and think you will agree.

Matchmaster Foundation is available right now at all M·A·C locations and online at maccosmetics.com. Be sure to look for the MAC Holiday 2011 soon too.
