So today we are diving in and looking at the newest foundation by MAC. It is the Next To Nothing Foundation, which retails for $44 here in Australia, and $31USD in the US. This MAC foundation is described as a balmy tinted cream. The key claims are that it provides hydration and radiance, comfortable creamy formula, and improves the look of texture, fine lines and wrinkles.
The best way to apply the Next To Nothing Face Colour MAC foundation
I tried applying this sheer MAC foundation a few different ways, and found that using a round top foundation brush was the best for me. Since it is a thick consistency, but sheer coverage, it benefits well from a brush so it can be spread out without reducing the cover. Unfortunately my favourite method of using a sponge was useless with this product, as it gave even less coverage.
How to pick your MAC foundation shades
This MAC foundation comes in 9 shades from Light to Dark Deep. I ended up choosing the shade medium as I found the online colour match recommendation from MAC to be best for NC 20/25.
I have the Studio Fix Fluid foundation from MAC in NC20 and NC30. NC20 is my most used and preferred shade. It is more yellow toned than the Next to Nothing Face Colour in Medium. However I wouldn’t consider the shade medium to be pink toned – but more neutral.
Is the new MAC foundation price worth it?
Most foundations come standard with 30mL, in a glass bottle, that requires you to purchase a separate pump. This MAC foundation contains 35mL and comes with a pump for $44. It is cheaper than the other MAC foundations on their website, and contains more product as well. It literally has ‘next to nothing’ coverage, so if you like medium to full coverage this won’t be worth it for you. But if you like a sheer tint, that will add a radiant glow I would say it is worth it.
