Today I will review MAC Next to nothing face colour in Medium.
Next to nothing face colour is described a sheer tinted cream, and it can be used under or over foundation. Honestly, I was bit confused about this product, it really looks like a foundation, but on the MAC site, it says it’s a moisturizing tinted cream, so we will go with cream.
I applied it with Dior fluid foundation brush on my left face. On MAC’s website, it suggests to use it with the 140 Synthetic Full Brush or sponge. Though I don’t own that brush, I wouldn’t use it to apply any liquid/cream makeup. Especially, the brush is for powders(maybe some mistakes on their description box).
The reason why I choose this brush is because I feel this sheer tinted cream is more watery than liquid foundations, so I need to use a flat brush to apply it evenly. After I applied, my skin feels moisturized. Maybe I really treated it as a foundation, so I added couple layers on my face (kind of wishing miracle would happen, like pimples would be covered). Anyway, I realized it’s not a foundation and it won’t change its coverage. So I let it set without any setting powder, just to see the result.
After (on the left side of my face):
As a result, I feel it’s more like a tinted moisturizer. It's light-weighted, the same time nourishes my skin, and as its name I barely feel I have any makeup on my face. Although It didn't cover my flaws that much, it did cover the redness I had as you can see in my chin area. However, if you desire for more coverage, then you do need a concealer.
For testing purpose, I didn’t use any concealer, and also because I feel so confortable to wear it just the way it is. What I love about this product is, if you have a foundation, you wish to change its color (like I do), then this is the product!!! I have many foundations, but a few of them are a little bit light for me, so If I can’t make them become dark shades, I would use the Next To Nothing Face Colour in darker shades as my makeup base then apply my foundation. Furthermore, for people who seeks for “no-makeup” kind of makeup, they might find this product alone is enough. Nonetheless, if this product contained SPF, it would be just be perfect.
