I have been using Mary Kay products for years and I have been thrilled with every product I have used.  I suffer from allergies which for a long time prevented me from wearing much makeup, that is until I discovered Mary Kay brand. Now I can wear make up with the confidence that my skin won't get blotchy and itchy.  Which is why I love the Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation.  What is the product closet to our skin?  Of course it is foundation.  Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation, looks great, feels great, and lasts all day.  I love how it glides on and does a great job of covering moset imperfections making your face look flawless. There are so many shades to choose from and I have found that most Mary Kay reps are happy to help you find the perfect shade for your skin.  I know that Mary Kay costs a little more, but you are paying for high quality makeup and it's like having your own personal go to person for all your questions when you find a Mary Kay rep.  I just love though how well this foundation covers and makes me feel pretty.

Lately, I have come back to Mary Kay for most of my cosmetics - I tried Lancome for quite a while, but Lancome is just too expensive for my budjet now.  Mary Kay has amazing lotions, moisturizers, and facial color products.  However, their concealers and foundations leave something to be desired.  I used to LOVE the ivory rose shade - it was perfect for my cool undertones, covered well, and had a nice SPF bonus.  The shades today are MUCH warmer then they were.  They just don't look natural on my face... either too light, or too dark, or just too yellowish.  I understand why the SPF was removed - some women's skin don't react well to it.  I don't mind a separate lotion for that.  However, they need to tweek the shades again.  That being said, the Medium coverage does glide on well, and does cover nicely.  If you can find a shade to match or compliment your skin tone, go for it!  One more positive mention... this product doesn't break me out!

Not medium, but FULL coverage

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

This foundation wasn't what I was looking for at all. I was looking for a product that I could wear sheer (with a moisturizer mixed in) or full coverage (with another layer on top.) However, this product with one light application was extremely full coverage.

Normally, I wouldn't complain about a product with full coverage, but this one didn't look natural at all on the skin. Instead of blending into my skin seamlessly, this product just seemed to sit on top of the skin like a mask. Whenever I looked at myself in the mirror, it was apparent that I had makeup on my skin.

As I have fair skin, I purchased the lightest color of this product. I was surprised to find that the color was extremely orange on me.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Mary Kay Medium Coverage foundation. This product is unnatural on the skin, and it's too full coverage for a "medium" coverage foundation. Skip out on this product!

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I love Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation. I tried this makeup when one of my friends was selling it years ago. This product has been around for a long time and when something continues to be on the market you know it has to be good. I love the way my skin feels and looks while using this, the coverage I get is remarkable. There is no greasy, sticky feeling and your skin does not feel weighed down from it. When using Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation I do not have worry about skin breakouts or dry patches on my face. I love the fact that it is light weight yet long wearing, you do not have to worry about reapplying it later in the day. Another plus for Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation is that there are so many different shades to match your true color. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality product without having to pay the expensive price.

Great foundation by Mary Kay!

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

My aunt sells Mary Kay and gave me a sample of this foundation as a trial run a while ago. After using it, I was hooked and continued to buy it. I haven't found another foundation that makes my skin look as even and soft as this one. When I wear this, I get compliments all the time about how soft my skin looks. I have even had people feel my cheeks because they looked so soft. It gave my skin a really even looking appearance too. It went on smooth and created no lines on my face at all. The color was great. I used one color during summer and a lighter shade in the winter. I have been wearing make up since I was 14 and been trying all kinds of different foundations. This is definitely one of the top ones I have ever worn. I started ordering it on a regular basis from my aunt and wore it for years. I have started rotating in other foundations to try them out as well but this one has yet to be beat. I highly recommend it.

Pricey, but effective

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I never used to use Mary Kay makeup because I assumed it was just too expensive and not worth the money when there are generic products that are comparable and cheaper. However, a friend started to sell the products and I wanted to support her, so I went ahead and bought this foundation for nighttime wear. I really liked it! It felt so soft and smooth on my skin and it made it look almost perfect. Even better, it went on so easily that even my clumsy hands could apply it like an expert and it didn't feel like I was wearing much of anything. It didn't leave any greasiness behind and I didn't have to reapply it at all, which was a welcome change from how things usually go when I wear makeup. It is still a little more expensive than I would prefer for my makeup to be, but since I don't wear it very often and I don't have to use very much of it, it does tend to be worth the cost. I would recommend it.

I love Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation!

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I have been using Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation for several years. Mary Kay continually improves their products! I have never been disappointed in any Mary Kay product. I started using Mary Kay when I was in my early 20's, after being invited to a Mary Kay party. I really liked it and began to purchase all my make-up products from this company. The medium coverage foundation goes on smooth on my face and last all day long. Sometimes I need to apply a little more in certain areas of my face,if I am going out at night. It has a smooth feel and never leaves my skin feeling greasy or unnatural. My Mary Kay Consultant is always friendly and helpful. She is great to help me what works best for my skin. I have tried other foundations during the years that I have used the medium coverage foundation and I have not liked them. I always go back to the medium coverage foundation. I really like liquid foundations, instead of the power foundations. I recommend anyone to try this product!

Great Foundation!

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

This foundation is so light and smooth that after you put it on you wonder if it's even there! It has no odor and a great variety of colors that will match any skin tone. Unlike other foundations it does not get clumpy or need a lot of shaking before application. Using a facial sponge or fingertips work great!

Love it

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I started wearing Mary Kay makeup when I had lost all self confidence in myself. This foundation helped me so much to regain what I had lost. The coverage is excellent. It doesn't clog your pores the way department store brands do, and doesn't cause acne. It feels light and clean on your face and doesn't make you feel like you are wearing a mask. This is my first choice in foundation because it is just excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with Adult acne or sensitive skin. Its simply the best. I've tried alot of different products like this over the years but I must say that Mary Kay has beat them all, hands down. If you want coverage that is easy to apply and easy to remove, this is it right here. No more feeling like I need to scrape my makeup off with a chisel. Or fearing to accidently touch my face because I might leave a streak or smear in my makeup that everyone can see. This is the only kind I will use.

Mary Kay Medium Coverage: Covers Well, But No Longer My Favorite

By 

from USA

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

When I started using Mary Kay, I used their now-discontinued Full-Coverage Foundation. Then I moved to the Medium-Coverage Liquid Foundation, which I have used for years. Recently I found their Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation, and have again switched to that formula instead of the Medium-Coverage. Here's why:

MK's Medium Coverage Liquid Foundation does a fine job of covering up blemishes, spots, and dark circles under the eyes. Their colors are great and any good Mary Kay consultant can quickly and accurately tell you which foundation shade you should be using based on your skin tone.

The downside to the Medium-Coverage Foundation for me was that as my skin has aged and gotten more dry, it did not go on as easily or as well. It left my skin with a matte-finish, and collected in my pores, dry skin areas, and wrinkles. This was the case even after using plenty of moisturizer prior to the application of foundation. If you have dry skin too, the Luminous-Wear or one of their Mineral Powder Foundations are a much better alternative.

Overpriced and Awful!!!

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I bought this expensive junk and I just despise it. It does not look that good and it makes my eyes burn every time I tried to use it. I found a place where it belong. That would be file 13 where I put my other trash. I would never buy this overprices stuff again.

Good foundation, just no color match

By 

from USA

Comments about Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation:

I purchased this foundation upon recommendation from a Mary Kay consultant. I was very pleased with the coverage and longevity of this foundation.

I would described the coverage as medium but buildable to full. It definitely evens the complexion and covers scars and small/medium pimples. The only time I needed to use concealer with this foundation is when I had really bad under eye circles (like I just stayed up 3 nights studying under eye circles) or if I had a bad cystic pimple.

This foundation stays on my oily skin throughout my 10 hour day. It rarely streaks or cakes up like other foundations I have used. I also like the texture of this foundation as it is not too runny but rather somewhere in between runny and a mousse. This makes it spreadable but also allows it to stay on.

The tube packaging is convenient and when you get near the end you can cut the tube open and scrape the insides to get extra product. The price is fairly affordable, in between drugstore and high end.

This worked for my oily, acne prone skin so I would recommend it for similar skin types. The only thing I don't like about it is that I prefer being able to go to my local retailers to get makeup products instead of having to order from a consultant or online. Also, I just could not find a color that matched for me. The colors tended to all be a bit dark or too pink. If I could find a color match and this was available at my local stores, I would use this foundation regularly.
