This is M.A.C.’s newest offering in terms of foundations.  It’s supposed to be a creamy, lighter-in-texture version of Studio Tech, but with a gel-like finish (similar to MUFE Face and Body Liquid Makeup or M.A.C.’s Studio Sculpt/Satinfinish).  It sounds like it would work great for people with dry skin.
