MAC Hyper Real SPF 15 Foundation NC 400
I've never heard about or of this foundation until someone wanted to swap with me on Makeupalley. I checked out her swaplist & she had lots of MAC foundations & powders in my shade *NC37-NC40*. I had most of them already or tried it. This was the only one I haven't tried. I asked her about it and she described it to me. She told me this "I would say that the hyperreal is a step up and is just a little more mineralized that the mineralized skinfinish..meaning you get a really really glowy look, not fake looking but natural...fantastic for wearing at night if you go clubbing or a nice evening out..i wear mine all day becuase i just love the look and i get complimented on my skin all day :) my complexion hanged so i'm a little lighter now thats why i'm getting rid of my nc400."
When I received it in the mail, I swatched it & fell in loveee with it. Sadly it was Winter & it was slightly too dark on me. I am NC37 during Winter. So it just sat in my traincase until NOW!
I have been using it for 2 weeks now. I've been tanning too so it blends right in. It makes my skin look iridescent. No need for me to apply bronzer...just for contouring only though. The shimmer in this gives me a soft dewy look. Light to Medium coverage but veryy blendable and sheer. It could be build to full coverage but I have a little freckle on my nose so I don't normally go for full coverage.
My skin is Oily/Dry Combo...but more on the dry side. I don't really get oily in the t zone as much as I do with the Studio Fix Fluid as I do with this. Just blotted ONCE and that was it for the day.
I'm soo sad that this is discontinued. I am going to try to find more on Makeupalley. This is my Holy Grail for the season. Seriously. I need to stock up on it b/c I can't find many in the shade NC 400.
