MAC Confirm Comeback of Hyper Real Foundation

If you're an OG MAC fan you'll remember the gorgeously glowy Hyper Real Foundation. Hyper Real Foundation was launched around 15 years ago as one of the first of its kind but was discontinued after the extra-glowy look fell out of trend. Fast forward to 2018 the trend is back and we all want a radiant complexion. MAC are bringing back Hyper Real Foundation in 4 new shades Violet, Bronze, Gold and Rose Gold. The formula won't be how OG fans remember as MAC seem to have transformed it into an entirely new bang up-to-date product for its re-release. They can be used exactly as a liquid highlighter: to highlight the high points of the face, on the body, under foundation or over. It's a totally versatile product. Like a true foundation you receive 30ml of product. This is double the amount contained in Cover FX's cult highligter drops at 15ml or Makeup Revolution's liquid highlighter at 10ml. Launch in the UK is currently not know but is expected in late summer to early autumn.
