If I had to pick a favorite makeup product, my Studio Fix Fluid would definitely be it. I love it! In the past I had different drugstore foundations and the ones I have tried do not compare at all. This is a full coverage foundation with a matte finish and a yellow undertone instead of a pinkish undertone. So this foundation isn't for those who don't like those things. But for me, it works wonders! I moisturize with Ponds and set with Smashbox Photoset Finishing Powder. Makeup stays on all day.
I really tried to like this, I did, but it just didn't work. I did love that it didn't budge, it covered a lot, and truly lasted almost the whole day; but my face looked dry and severely yellow- no thanks!
Highs: Didn't rub off; covered a lot; lasts all day.
Lows: Way too much yellow in the undertone; powder finish made my face look dry; formula is thick and kind of cakey.
For A 5 Minute Use.
I tried this foundation because I saw everyone use it . I was expecting really good things, because I saw how wonderful it looked on the runway and in photos. I didn't realize that though it looks great for a few minutes, it actually isn't the best thing for every day.
The foundation is really thick and cakey. It also doesn't match my skin perfectly. It's a bit too yellow or too red for my skin. It also really broke me out. After some time wearing it, tiny bumps appeared on my skin and made it look really bad.
I really like it in photos and for a few minutes, but other than that it broke me out really bad. I stay away from MAC foundations in general these days.
not for my skin tone
I purchased this foundation after trying it on at the MAC counter and I looks amazing under their lighting. I put it on one day and it made my skin look ashen. I thought that it was because the color was too light so I purchased it in a different color...it looked ashen as well. I eventually found out that it was because the SPF gives the foundation a white tint. I don't care for it at all.
