Hi guys! I'm sure everyone's been hauling like crazy during MAC Sumo sale. Like everyone else, I ordered a few goodies I've been lemming as well.

The loot:

--MAC Face and Body foundations in C2, C3, and C5.
--MAC MSF in Refined
--MAC MSF in Perfect topping
--MAC MSF in Gold Deposit

Some of you might think that I'm crazy for ordering 3 foundations, but I've heard great things about the F&B foundations so I wanted to give them a try when there's a special. I'm thinking of mixing C2 and C3 for my perfect match, and C5 as my liquid bronzer (works AMAZING well!). I've been using them recently, and they held up pretty well in 100+ degree weather that has 80% humidity. However, their coverage is VERY light though, so you need to use a concealer to cover up imperfections. I will do a formal review on that.

I'v lemmed the Sugarsweet MSFs when the collection came up, but couldn't justify the $27 price tag. However, w/ the 25% off special, I caved. The textures of these 2 MSFs are both very finely milled and NOT chunky. It gives the skin a great glow that's very subtle. Gold deposit, on the other hand, is very metallic and is great to use as a bronzer for ppl w/ tanned skintone.

Refined MSF:

This is a light golden peach MSF. It's got some light gold, pearly beige, neutral brown, and peach veinings throughout the pan.

Perfect Topping MSF:

Light lavender, Light ivory, dark peach, cocoa veinings throughout the pan. It looks light pink on the skin though.

Gold Deposit:

Gorgeous 24K gold. It doen'st look orange on the skin, which is great! It's got a lot more obvious shimmer than the previous 2.

Swatches: L-R Gold Deposit, Refined, Perfect topping

Anyways, I will do some FOTDs w/ these soon, so please stay tuned!

yes, you are nuts to get 3 shades but it's good for your readers! :P

i am a very stingy person when it comes to foundation. i try to use up as much as i could before trying out new stuff,. it's difficult but i try!

i am here waiting for your reviews!!! Do try all of them quickly!

Looking forward to your Mac Face & Body foundation review! I got it during the sale as well; I love that the coverage is "buildable," but man, it broke me out SO so badly (giant, itchy red throbbing bumps). I think I'm allergic to something inside it. Hope you've been having better luck with it than me!

I wanted to buy Perfect Topping, but when I went to the site, it was gone so I got Refined instead. I can't wait to read your reviews on the F&B foundations! I've been looking at them for quite some time.

Hi! I found your blog a few months ago and have been stopping by ever since. I'm not an everyday makeup wearer, but your reviews and tips are so helpful, especially when I need to prepare for a photo shoot. Thanks for what you're doing here!
