I'd never thought of MAC as a skincare brand until I got their Studio Moisture Cream as a freebie to try out.
This cream comes in a nice, handy tube and promises nothing but hydration. It goes on very smoothly and leaves nice canvas on the skin. On my oily skin it gives a kind of satin finish, but I prefer to use it at night as it offers the moisture I need at that time, while during the day I prefer something more mattifying.
Yet, I do see the point of make-up artists using this cream on their clients to create a smooth base for future make up.
The only thing that bothers me is the smell. I believe it's supposed to be fragrance-free, but I'd rather the manufacturer used some floral scent to mask the overpowering chemical smell of the cream. It smells like melted pastic to me, which is not the most pleasant thing to have on your face.
It's a good cream, but I'd never spend this kind of money on a simple moisturiser that smells so artificial.
