I tried NC25. It seems a little on the dark side for me, but I was undeterred, so I blended it over my face. The formula is very silky and lightweight, which provides a more natural looking finish. I tried application with the sponge that comes in the bottom of the compact and with a foundation brush. I actually liked the sponged finish more, because it really evened the redness out. I definitely recommend using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powder afterward. Overall, I like this foundation, it gives medium coverage, but it's not my favorite.
