sorry to hear that, i bought the hyper real w/spf and i think it was a culprit in breaking me out.....sad it look soo pretty on.........guess i should have known better not to put something on my skin that you have to scoop out of a bottle lol.gifeusa_wall.gif ah well, have u tried mineral makeups??? So far, they're the only makeup that has improved my skin vs. irritate it.

Oh dear, I just started using Mac Select SPF 15 foundation. Darn it. The review for the STudio Fix version is pretty bad. Should've known.

anise, hope your skin has recovered by now.

It takes time....anyway,I cant find any Mineral make up in my ccountry, but i switched to chanel ( the only trouble thing is that i needa ask the make up artist to use that), hope it'll be cool

Hey! I have used both the studio fix (using that now) and the select stuff with the spf of 15. I broke out before I started using mac and now with some other treatments I have kinda stopped breaking out, but everyone's skin is different. I find that when my skin is really dry I can't use the studio fix but when it is oily it works really well. I just think that MAC is a better alternative to like covergirl and stuff like. Always make sure that you clean your brushes and sponges that you use to put on your makeup because if you just went over a zit it will carry the dirt and stuff all around your face. If you don't wanna buy special brush cleaner you can just use antibacterial soap! oh well everyone prolly knew that anyway! Good luck

MAC select 15 is evilness!

i cant believe they reccomend it to me when i told them i have sensitive acne skin!

i have put some nasty things on my face, for special fx, morticians wax, liquid latex, solvents, glues never had a bad reaction until i tried this [email protected]!

when i first began to use it i notices it felt cool and my skin was a bit red from it,

so i used a little more to cover the reddness.

after 2 weeks of using my face broke out into the weirdest acne rash i had ever seen.

it was like so many acne joining together and under my skin cysts joining together.

i never ever had cysts before in my life!

i couldnt even put makeup over this becuz it was weeping for 4 weeks it didnt dry up. then another 4 weeks it crusted over and healed up finally.

MAC is amazing i have been usin it since i was 16 and its the only makeup that doesnt break me out.I use thyere select tint and its amazing just some slight coverage and not thick like fondation than i use concealer and blot powder and blush.Every celeb uses mac movie stars use it like everyone does lol and its non comedogenic.I would check what else your doing cause i cant see it being mac but you never know.

lexy---non comedogenic is a joke.

i love their blot powder and sheertone blush but the select 15 foundation is rubbish. this stuff seperated on my face in about 2 hours settled into all my pores, and they say non comedogenic...

i wouldnt say every celeb uses mac!

i am a makeup artist and i work with celebrities and models no they dont all use mac.

i have heard of too many bad reactions to carry on recommending mac.

mac is highly overrated.

there is so many better products out there.

good say cobie.

Non comedongenic is a joke, it's so true, either is oil free.

they can still have possiblilty to break you out, and in mac's case, it's on a higher rate while lower on the other good products.( on my face )

Anyway, the Chanel Universal foundation is golden, my face is glowing with that. And most importantly, people can't figure out that i am wearing make up. and no break out so far, knock on the wood.....

I would LOVE MAC Studio Fix, if it didn't break me out sad.gif Just a bit of it gives you an almost airbrushed look. But it's also the only product (aside from Covergirl) where I've been able to see a direct cause-effect pattern for breakouts.

Anyway, the whole non-comedogenic stuff is such bull. If you look on MakeupAlley.com (under productville), you'll find a lot of people have problems with MAC foundations, even when they don't have acne-prone skin to start with.

i've tried m.a.c. studiotech. and that is enough.

i broke out. good oils? phssyeah. like that exists.

it was too heavy. and i don't really trust any of their other foundations/powders.

i may try their eye stuff. although i don't really wear anything except eyeliner now.

jollajolla--i love some of their products, blot film, blot powder, some lipglass, sheertone blush, lipsticks.

the eyeshadows come in a great colour range and they photograph well. but not very good staying power.

studofix and select15 seem to be the main offenders here...

yes the only redeming quality of mac is they refund if it causes u problems,

but what does that say about their products?

that they are known to cause problems, so to avoid drama they just give u your money back! for me that is not enough cuz i have scars now thanks to their shonky products.

non-acnegenic my A$$!!!!!!!!
