good even coverage
This gives a very matte and full coverage on your skin. This works well if you have alot of flaws to conceal. This tends to feel heavy though and has a tendency to clog up pores and break you out if you have acne prone/oily skin. It oxidizes on skin after awhile like most mac foundations.
I wouldn't use this powder foundation for m normal make-up routine in the morning because it doesn't give me enough coverage but over a normal liquid foundation it's too heavy for me ... but if you really want to be all covered up maybe you'll like it.
What I like to do instead is to carry the Studio Fix in my little Make-Up back which I have in my purse. It's perfect when you notice that your foundation isn't as perfect as it was in the morning and you want to touch up. Then the Studio Fix gives you enough coverage and a nice finish.
Because it is so creamy I like to apply it with the sponge that comes with it because for my kabuki brush the consistency is to creamy.
Its so creamy and soft and applies so easy. It takes me 2 minutes to cover my face. It covers evenly but doesn't cover up everything so the face still looks natural. Works best with a primer. I've used a brush and sponges to apply and both work equally well.
My emergency powder. My "I have to leave NOW because someone's having a baby!" powder. Also my "I don't have enough space in my bag for all my stash" powder. The one that makes people look at me and I'm like "Yes. I was born this beautiful". Little do they know.
So! This is it. If I could right an epic poem about it, I would.
I would say that alone it gives great coverage. I like that my skin looks smooth and flawless. Its all in how you apply it .I use a harder brush to make sure that it gets buffed in and I get a flawless look. I would say that it does let the oil threw after a while, especially in the summer. But with the right blot powder it can be a great everyday foundation. I never really liked liquid foundation but I wanted the coverage so I would have to say that I will never have to use liquid again with this in my collection.
My very first high end powder. To me I think MAC is very overrated and you can get other products for lesser price and better quality. Left my face feeling very oily and thick. Even with their Kabuki brush I looked cakey and heavy. Almost like a foundation. I would still have to use Fix + to give it a duey finish..
My Must Have
I love this product to pieces! I'm not gonna lie, it makes me feel pretty. Other powders feel cakey and heavy on my skin, but this is so light and gives such a nice finish. It helps cover my red areas and I don't know, I just love it! I love that I don't have to use too much to cover and I love that when I use this, my face isn't as shiny as before. I don't love the price however, but this powder lasts super long so I don't mind as much. (:
haven't had it long, but
i really love this powder. im trying to move out of buying things from mac because they're pricey but i haven't tried anything quite like this. it gives light coverage, enough to cover my acne scars and a bit of redness as well. i love pairing it with concealer in the summer but i think i'll find use for it in the winter months as well. a really nice buy and worth the price. it never cakes up on me, either!
For days and nights out with people knowing that pictures won't be taken this is THE BEST foundation. I don't even need concealer because it has THAT much coverage. I have hit pan so many times that I've needed to buy back-ups. I use this foundation and then seal it with MAC's Mineral Skinfinish.
