MAC Full Coverage Foundation - NC20 Review


I bought this product for the first time when I went to Las Vegas when I was younger. I bought this MAC Full Coverage Crème Foundation, took it home, fell in love with it and then couldn’t find a replacement in the UK. At the time it was a pro product and you could only get it in a pro store. I was so upset that I couldn’t get any more!

Then one day I was watching a video by Wayne Goss and he said that if you phone MAC you can place an order for it over the phone. I was amazed and instantly called up and ordered a shed load of it to keep me going for years to come. I get these cream foundations in near enough every shade so that I can do a full highlighting and contouring look using them.

As I am a NC40 shade all over my face, I go in with a NC20 to highlight my face. I know that sounds like a massive difference but when it is buffed into the skin it really does look so natural, like light is naturally hitting the face.


I apply this is the usual places where you would highlight, in a triangle under my eyes, down the nose, chin, cupids bow, forehead and brow bone. I apply the MAC Full Coverage crème in a highlighted shade underneath my eyes in a downwards triangle, on my chin, down the bridge of my nose and in the centre of the forehead. When I have a light layer of this on the face I will then go through and blend it all in using my damp Beauty Blender.

When I am doing a full coverage look like this using the MAC Full Coverage crème foundations I will just go in with a nice and light foundation for my base. My two favourites to use are the YSL Touché Eclat foundation and the other is the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation. Having something light on underneath it just helps to blend in the cream products.

Also, if you was to wear a thicker foundation underneath, you have double the coverage which could lead to it looking a little cakey. If that is the kind of look you like to go for, a really heavy coverage then I would use a foundation like the MAC Studio Fix Fluid or the Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation.

When I have all of my liquids and crèmes on my face and looking how I want them to I will lock them into place using my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder or my RCMA No Colour Powder. These two powders are incredible and will stop anything from moving on the face.

If I feel like the highlighted areas are looking a little two dimensional after all of the full coverage products I will then just go in with a nice subtle highlighter such as the MAC Mineralise Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, just to bring back a bit of life to the face.

The reason why I like using the MAC Full Coverage Crème Foundation to highlight is because I feel like it doesn’t move the product underneath. Many highlighters that I have used I feel move foundation that I have already applied, but this doesn’t do it at all. Not to mention that when you buy this foundation you get 20g of product which is a huge amount for a highlighting product. And because I only use a small amount because of how nice and pigmented it is, it lasts me forever!

As normal please leave me any comments that you may have and I would be more than happy to get back to you!
