MAC Next to Nothing

MAC Next to Nothing Face Colour

Sexy, sheer, balmy perfection. That’s how M.A.C Cosmetics describes their latest innovation: M.A.C Next To Nothing Face Colour.

Created with a blend of nourishing ingredients and opalescent microspheres Next to Nothing is formulated to bring out skin’s luminosity whether under makeup or on its own.

When M.A.C first sent me the collection to try I thought “Well hum”.

I have not been a fan of M.A.C powders and foundations in the past (they were way too heavy for me and left my skin looking a bit cakey) so I was kinda  hesitant to try.

Once I pumped that first droplet of the product on my skin they had me.  This new collection is EVERYTHING!

It glides on smooth, blends out to perfection and wears like a boss!

Offering up flawless skin in two forms, both liquid and powder, in 9 shades from Light to Dark Deep the collection has something for everyone.

MAC Next to Nothing Liquid

The liquid’s texture is similar to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, delivering a ton of hydration with a wash of color that helps delicately mask imperfections. Unlike M.A.C’s current foundation formulations, the Next to Nothing Face Colour feels much lighter and gives skin a glow-y natural almost mesmerizing finish.  It wears like a BB Cream but with much better coverage.

MAC Next to Nothing Powder

The powder formula is satiny and silky, with a similar mesmerizing pearlescent quality as the liquid.

I am seriously impressed with both of these new products and would rank them up there with some of my top foundation favorites like Armani and Charlotte Tilbury.

A definite Must-Try,  M.A.C Next to Nothing Face Colour is Available at M.A.C Retail Locations and
