MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact Cushion

Cushion makeup is everywhere at the moment so no wonder MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact is now available because hey, MAC is the go to for all things foundation apparently (although I beg to disagree because their foundations are either too beige or too yellow on me!).

MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact ($36) does intrigue me though as it has a color adapting technology that gives your a complexion a “true-to-life” natural skin finish with sheer to medium coverage.

It’s available in 12 shade selections and comes housed in a chunky double lid compartment compact that features the mirror and sponge on the upper level and a flip up lid that houses the cushion.

Cushion makeup isn’t new by any means particularly if you’re a Korean beauty and makeup users as these have been around for the last two or so years. But it’s just now starting to pop up here in the US.

I’m looking forward to seeing how MAC does in the cushion world and see if their formula is as great as it sounds.

Now to find a good match…

Get the MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact now at and soon on counters.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Stila had one called Pivotal Skin that I wore back in 2006 or so. It was nice, very light coverage but worked for those “no makeup” days. I’m curious to see how these new ones are. Seems like every brand has one now, I guess it’s the new BB cream!

    I have the funny feeling that this may be a gimmick……colour adapting technology…hmmm.
    There are lots of different complexions out there and I think it would be very hard to have one foundation that can adapt to all of them.
