I love this foundation but hate the bottle it comes in. It is a hard glass bottle. After the first few uses it becomes awkward to get the liquid out. The top of the bottle becomes really messy and there's lot of waste. Do any of you transfer foundation to other containers? I'm thinking a squeezable plastic tube or a pump would work better.

You can buy a pump that fits the bottle from MAC. I've got one, works well.

Oh I never thought of that, thanks! I'll try it

I pour some into a little flat pot with a lid that i use for travel. Then I can dip my brush into that.

You need to cut a bit off the bottom of the MAC pump, but it works.

Debenhams online stocks MAC and they often have 10% off days with free delivery.

I use the mac pumps with Estée Lauder double wear and they fit perfectly. Never needed to cut anything off the bottom?

I never cut the bottom off either. They are £3
