i hear from a lot of people that its pretty good, although i find it to thick and cakey it has a lot of coverage but i felt unnatural in it. Im sure others just love it.

I've just ordered some foundation from their site..just hope the color is ok for me! I got some lipstick off their site and when it arrived i found it to be darker than the color chart pic on the site, still was nice tho!

I don't use their foundation, but I LOVE their lipstick. I wear their matte lipstick in Brave during the day or at work and Twig if I am going out. Their lipstick paired with their Lip Glass makes a great combo if you like shine and a glossy finish.
 
I don't suppose you have a MAC counter near you? Trying the colors on ahead of time is best. I've had such bad luck (personally) ordering lipsticks from any manufacturer without trying them first.

Just tested out some of the mac foundation and it feels great, the color is fine too considering its hard to buy makeup just by the color chart on websites!
its very smooth and flawless looking too so im happy! 19 pound isnt too bad of a price! I was paying 16 for Clinique and 25 for YSL

I LOVE MAC! Tongue As SDOW said, the colors on the site aren't really what they actually look like. So I usally shop just at the MAC counters. As for the foundations they have lots and lots of different types. Liquid, Creme, Powder, Spray on; and then those types have many different types. So I would try it in store (the gals will help you) and see what you like best.  IMO MAC offers a wide range of very good products!

MAC is really sub-par for foundations. They have a lot of pore-clogging ingredients and most forumulas tend to be very heavy and cakey. If you are acne-prone, stay AWAY from MAC foundations/powders, etc.

I have friends who use nothing but MAC products.  They see a MAC store and get lost for EVER in them.  I have never used any MAC product, so can't really say anything from personal experience, but by how hardcore and loyal my friends are to the product, it must be good. Ha.
