Product Review: MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

I am a MAC girl. The brand is so amazing. I adore most of their beauty products. They are one of the best in the market today, and I enjoy using them. So today, I bring to you the MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation review, I am loving at the moment:

Now I have two different shades of the MAC Matchmaster foundation because the sales girl sold me the whole shade at first. Some of these makeup salesgirls are indeed clueless when it comes to makeup for the dark skin. Many of them still think all black women should use the darkest shade available, so if you are a coloured girl, keep your eyes wide open when testing makeup products, so you don’t end up with the wrong shade like I did.

Anyways, back to my story, so I was sold the wrong shade at the first, which is the foundation on the left and below – MAC Matchmaster SPF Foundation 9.0.

It was way too dark on my face, so I went in search of another shade, and decided to settle for the MAC Matchmaster SPF in 7.0. Looking at it, I think the perfect shade for me is the shade in between these two, which should be the 8.0, but I wanted to still make use of the wrong shade I bought already, so I mix both foundations together to get the right shade, and that has worked fine so far. I use the dark foundation – 9.0,  to contour as well.

Here is the 7.0 shade below:

I was applying both shades on here.

To Contour Or Not To Contour?

In light of the recent Vogue Festival 2015 discussions, I now find myself questioning all I know about makeup and contour, thanks to Bobbi Brown’s speech at the event. I did not attend the Vogue Festival event but it is quite difficult to ignore it, with details of the show being all over the blogosphere.

Bobbi Brown believes contouring is unnatural and should not be done. Here is one of her quotes from her talk at the event:

“I don’t get this whole contouring thing. I think I’m probably the only makeup artist who feels this way. And I know some of my artists contour with my products and don’t tell me about it. But contouring just says that there’s something wrong with the way you look. I like to enhance natural beauty and not try to change someone.”

For those who don’t know, contouring is a technique that helps to define your facial features, creating the appearance of higher cheekbones and slimmer chin, using the right beauty products. Now here is my take on this, I am no makeup artist or expert, and I respect Bobbi Brown as a makeup guru, but as a woman who applies makeup, I don’t see contouring as unnatural. Some women will need the contouring technique more than others, and some will just want the contour makeup to enhance or add more definition to their facial features, I don’t see that as unnatural. If that is unnatural, then the whole makeup act is unnatural because the right makeup is meant to do the exact same thing, the contouring technique is just a more concentrated and strategic application of makeup, in my own opinion.

Do you agree with Bobbi Brown or with me? To contour not to contour? What are your thoughts on this?
