MAC released their brand new Studio WATERWEIGHT Spf 30 Foundation this past month which is described as a a hydrating gel-serum formula with a long-lasting finish. I ordered this a little over 3 weeks ago and have been able to test it out in different climates and with a variety of products.
MAC Studio WATERWEIGHT Foundation is $33 for 1.0 fl. oz. and has a "dropper bottle" style packaging. I currently wear the shade NC25.
Finish - I would describe this foundation to have a natural finish with a bit of a sheen. Since I have dry skin, I am able to wear it without powder and a slight sheen comes through on my skin. It has a moisturizing texture, so it has a similar feel to a tinted moisturizer.
Application - Since the product has a dropper style tube, I use about a full dropper for a medium coverage look and about half a dropper for a lighter coverage. I use an IT Cosmetics Complexion Perfecting buffing brush to apply this. It blends beautifully into the skin and doesn't cling to dry patches or imperfections.
Longevity - I wore this foundation for 4 days in New Orleans and it wore wonderfully in the hot heat! It does have a longer wear if you set it with some type of powder (like any foundation would). I like to set it with a little bit of translucent powder for a light coverage look and when I want more coverage, I set it with MAC Studio Fix Powder.
Overall Thoughts - I am really enjoying this product. It is VERY similar to one of my favorite foundations by MAC, which is Face and Body. I would say it's identical to MAC Face and Body, except it has more coverage and less of a dewy finish. It feels wonderful on my dry skin and doesn't enhance my dry patches!
