When I first saw the MAC Matchmaster foundations backstage in autumn, I was pretty excited as I love cushion foundations. Typically, MAC has taken the cushion concept up a level by including ‘shade intelligence’ meaning that the colour (your nearest shade) should, in theory, adjust itself to a perfect skin match.

In format, MAC Matchmaster is much like any other cushion foundation with an internal ‘compact’ of wet foundation soaked into a sponge, with an included puff to apply it with.

The shades I have here are 3.0 (foreground) and 5.0. I should point out that handy as they are, cushion foundations give you less fluid that you’d get in a normal bottle of foundation – these are 13g.

Below is 5.0, above is 3.0. Neither of these are an exact match for me, but I am currently wearing 5.0 which is a little too yellow for my tone. But, if you love a ‘real skin’ look, then the sheer coverage will suit you perfectly. It’s not terribly forgiving, so I think you’d need to have nothing to hide in the first place, but it’s definitely good for a ‘fresh’ spring look when heavier coverage just doesn’t seem like the right thing. MAC Matchmaster is £29.50 and launches in February.
