The consistency of F&B is downright odd. Let me first say that I pride myself on my ability to wrap my head around tricky textures (and sometimes shitty textures) so I was surprised that I encountered a fair amount of trial and error. It is water based so straight out of the bottle, the consistency is very liquid but you have a window of 30 seconds before the product starts to set, leaving you with a grippy/rubbery/sticky dilemma.
Once you’ve conquered the application, MAC F&B is a beautiful product. I prefer it applied lightly for sheer coverage but you can let it set and apply another thin layer for medium coverage. Full coverage would be a stretch, I don’t think the good people at MAC created it for that purpose.The effect is ultra natural; this is the foundation to fool your family and friends, the pigment is oh-so-fine and utterly undetectable. The only aspect that might give it away is the sheen, F&B is definitely on the dewy spectrum so I like to set with a powder, MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Natural bumps up the coverage a tad but I actually prefer SUQQU Loose Powder to tone down the tackiness for a soft, diffused finish.
Loved it! Coverage is sheer, though, so if you have spots etc that you want to cover, this will be too light. Comes in a glass bottle, and you take it out with a dropper-so its hygienic in that sense, I suppose. I use a brush to apply it. I usually top up my foundation with setting powder to make it last longer

Loveeee this foundation from MAC.It is lightweight,and waterbased. Works very well for my oily skin.The coverage is sheer,and it comes with a pump.I usually need a concealer to hide my acne spots and I also set it with powder to make it last longer.It really suited my skin,and I use a sponge to apply it.
