REVIEW: MCo Beauty UltraStay Flawless Foundation

It is with great sadness that I live in a town that doesn’t have Woolworths. Can you even believe? 🤪 Usually it takes is a 20 minute drive to the next suburb to get in store, but thanks to lockdown, getting my hands on these during the current half price sale, proved a little more difficult. Nonetheless, I’ve secured the goods! Here’s my @mcobeauty haul and #firstimpressions on the foundation! I got the foundation in the lightest shade, Classic Ivory. In the bottle it appears lighter than the shade it actually is when you pump it out. Unfortunately, this foundation runs deep and so even the lightest shade was too yellow for me 😭 (although it is described as a neutral undertone, that wasn’t the case for me). It comes in 12 shades, but you can’t get them all in store… I reached out to Mco before posting this, and they’ve said that the shade range WILL be extended. However, they also said that shade range in Woolworths will vary store to store. I applied this with a damp beauty sponge and it applied really well. It is described as a builable to medium coverage ✔️which I agree with. Evens skin tone ✔️ also agree. 24 hour oil control✖️ disagree! This was long lasting, but my t-zone got slightly oily like it normally would. Sorry, this miracle-worker claim didn’t come true for me. Light-weight formula ✔️ true! It was really lovely to wear on the skin and felt comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this foundation, however if you are fair like me, you won’t be able to find a match. (And I’m not really about mixing with lighter foundations etc, I just want the product to work itself, ya know?) Also, I have combo skin- if you are really dry or oily, I don’t think this will play nice 😬 Next, I picked up the brush set. These are also sold individually. They look and feel like pretty decent quality. I was so excited to see that these are now stocked at Woolies, as they were exclusive to Oz Hair and Beauty for a short while. And lastly, I picked up the ‘peachy babe’ shade of the lip oil. I was eyeing off some of the brow products and the oh-so-famous tubing mascara, but I really don’t need them. 🙈What did you buy?

If you missed it, I posted my review of the new Mco Beauty Foundation on IG. You can see my thoughts in the post.

Wait for a Woolies sale and purchase here.


  • long lasting (but not 24 hours long)
  • light-weight and comfortable to wear
  • natural finish, perfect for normal to combination skin, but I wouldn’t think this would suit dry or oily skin without a lot of prep and maintenance work.
  • buildable coverage
  • shade range is lack-lustre. No options for very fair or very deep skin tones. However, Mco have said there is more to come. I’ll believe when I see it.
  • I tried the lightest shade ‘Classic Ivory’ and it was too deep and yellow for me unfortunately.

•MCO BEAUTY• it’s review time! i’ve been putting this baby to the test over the last few days and i honestly cannot say enough amazing things about it! so let’s jump right in! —————————————————————————————— WHAT IS IT; this is the new @mcobeauty #UltraStay Flawless Foundation. it is a lightweight liquid formula that offers a medium to full coverage finish that doesn’t cake, fade or rub off. it comes in 10 shades and is sold through the McoBeauty site or at @woolworths_au 😊 WHAT I FOUND; so i tested this foundation for 4 days. i wore it alone, with powder, with moisturiser underneath and with setting spray. i cannot believe how well this foundation works! the claim that it doesn’t budge holds up so well. even with the foundation simply on my skin, it held on so well. wearing a mask made the foundation rub off my nose slightly but i dont blame the foundation for that! i found the best combo for my skin was placing a sheer powder over the foundation and using setting spray – it lasted all day! no caking, minimal creasing and my face didn’t feel heavy after wearing a full day of liquid foundation. i am pretty much obsessed hahah! ——————————————————————————————— overall i would recommend this foundation! it not only has an awesome formula, but the price is awesome too! off the @mcobeauty website you’ll pay $28AU but @woolworths_au at the moment it’s on special for half price! also, let’s all take a moment and remember my gorgeous @kaleidosmakeup sponge before my dog got into it and shredded it hahah! i give this foundation 4/5! how can it get 5? bigger shade range 😍 . . . . . @mcobeauty #mcobeauty #mcobeautyproducts #mcobeautyinspo #mcobeautyfoundation #ultrastayflawlessfoundation #foundation #ashleysmakeupaddiction #makeupreview #review #makeup #beautybabe #beautybloggers
