Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
NW 50..... at first I hesitated on purchasing this product (because I thought it wasnt dark enough for my face) .... but after using it ... it does have great coverage .. doesnt make my face have that "ghostly" look. <3
good coverage, good base, but if you use a bit too much it does start getting chalky and pastey, nothing a bit of elf mist and set cant fix..
provides meduim coverage but if over a liquid foundation full :)
Pleasently Suprised and Now my holy grail!
I have very very VERY dry skin , and now its winter and my skin feels like the sahara desert on my face! So any liquid or cream foundation makes my face look like a flakey mess! And i dont know many people who like looking flakey.
And this foundation dose NOT make my face look flakey, If you use a moisturiser or tinted moisturiser (you could make your own by mixing) And then with a powder puff or i like too use a M.A.C 109 brush to buff it into my skin. And i get a flawless finnish every time! It gives a smooth airbrushed finnish and its much more easy to touch up in the day. Any more coverage needed, use a consealer, but a powder puff will give you pretty much full coverage. xx
Nice but bad for your skin
This looks very pretty but I don't wear it as much so it just sits there. My skin tone changes ALOT so it's very hard for me to stick to makeup and my face is always lighter than my body for some reason so sometimes I have to match my face with the rest of my skin (SUCKS!) This makes you look flawless though.
I've been using this years. I like it by it's self or even over a light coat of liquid foundation. I have very dry skin and the last time I went MAC the lady tried to get me to not buy this product. Well it looks great on my skin. IDKW but once it sets in my skin after a few minutes the powder look just goes away. It's super soft and I just love love this Foundation Powder so much. I use my MAC 182 brush to buff it in. Also I've never had break outs from this product and I have acne prone skin.
Everyone knows I'm a M.A.C junkie....when I first started really wearing foundation this is the first thing I got as a gift...I have really combination skin so after my liquid foundation I apply a Lil loose powder all over and I apply this one over the t-zone....it actually kinda highlights those areas while keeping my face matte...I love it and wont be caught without it...some people say it breaks them out...well if u use the sponge and never change it of course u are gonna break out...I use the e.l.f stippled bride...or sometimes the M.A.C 187 favorite...LOL to apply amazing results just amazing I always have a clean flawless look and I love that.
This is my top fave foundation. I didn't really like liquid foundation bcoz i feel that its quiet heavy and i don't like that feeling on my face. Since i don't really need a full coverage I decided to go for a powder foundation. I love this powder foundation, it stays on my face for the whole day i rarely need to touch up when using this. Weird thing is, i find that when i sleep on this for a bit and wake up the effect it leaves on my skin is flawless I love it lol. Need to buy one soon coz i've run out -.-
Why did it take so long for me to find this stuff!? AMAZING!
I've been wanting to try MAC ever since I got really into the whole *make up* thing, but the price just wasn't meeting my budget. So, for my birthday (which is this weekend) my boyfriend took me to the mall on Sunday and payed for me to get this stuff (I Love the guy!) So I have now been sucked into the world of Mac! I adore this stuff. It's not too heavy and it's great for people with oily skin like me. I've noticed others have talked about it making their skin more oily through the day..I haven't had this problem at all. Yesterday I had this stuff on for about 9 hours with no touch ups and I was still pretty matte and it still looked almost perfect when I took it off last night after a long work day! Usually I have to put on primer, liquid foundation, concealer and finishing powder and have to touch up with more powder throughout the day. All I have to do now is a primer, a few spot treatments with concealer on the bad spots, and I put on a tiny bit of finishing powder once my whole face is done..and NO touch ups through the day. I'm completely won over by this product and I have a feeling I'll be making a few more trips back to MAC at some point (goodbye bank account..lol)
studio fix is the love of my life
PROS: I love MAC's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, because it can be used for any level of coverage. If you break out, or have absolutely anything you want to cover up, this powder will definetely do the trick. To make the coverage full I use MAC's liquid foundation, and then I use the sponge that comes with this product. That covers up EVERYTHING. For a lighter coverage, I use a regular foundation brush and only use this powder. It also has an awesome matte finish, which looks awesome in pictures.
CONS: It isn't a drugstore price, so if you can't afford it, there are different alternatives.
LOVE THIS POWDER!
I use this powder over my liquid foundation and it gives it an amazing matte finish. Coverage lasts for hours and I never have to touch it up. I don't use the sponge it comes with (looks too cakey), I apply it with MAC's 134 to build the coverage I want and finish with a setting powder.
