Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
My Holy Grail!!!
I might have my shade wrong but I've been using this product for many years and can't find anything that really compares to it. I do like NARS Sheer Matte Foundation but it doesn't make me feel as naturally beautiful and flawless like studio fix. It covers my little imperfections and is buildable...so I can wear a little for daytime and more for a night on the town look. I have oily, acne-prone skin but I take care of it very well and this only enhances the look that MAC Studio Fix gives me. I don't see myself switching anytime soon.
I liked this product because when I didn't feel like doing a proper make up face and wanted a more natural look for classes I would only use this. However I felt like as I have combination skin my oily T-zone looked horrible when I used this. So the product is good but if oily or combination be careful.
I literally SWEAR by this product! I am so obsessed with this powder and I spent two months trying to find anything similar to it and of course I ended up going right back to it. This product is so versatile and can be used in so many ways. You can wear it on your bare skin for a more natural look, over tinted moisturizer for another natural look, and you can always wear it over foundation for a night out which will give you a flawless doll-like matte finish! A lot of people complain that it can be heavy but I never apply this with anything else but a large powder brush (real techniques powder brush, to be exact). Applying this with a powder brush can help give you much more control on the heaviness on your skin. If you want more heavy coverage you can apply a lot to the brush and if you want a more natural look you can apply minimally to the brush. Everyone I have recommended this powder to has fallen madly in love with it and has not stopped using it ever since. I believe it can be the perfect powder for anyone but you just need to know how to apply and use it properly. A definite must have in every girls make-up bag! You definitely will not regret this purchase.
I don't care for the applicator that comes with the compact, so I just use a face brush to apply this foundation. I don't like to pile on tons of face makeup, so what I like about this foundation is that I can just apply it with a dampened brush and I get great coverage. I also use it to fix any mistakes when I do my brows or to conceal the color of my lips.
I'm honestly pretty disappointed. I was searching high and low for a perfect everyday powder and everyone kept telling me to get this. It's a hit and a miss, the colour is a little yellow and sometimes it dries weird and makes me look cakey, other times it looks pretty good. I wouldn't buy this product again.
