If your looking for a great full coverage foundation then this is definitely it ( especially for darker women). However if you have oily or combination skin this is not for you unless you have a really great primer ( which still only gives minor help). The other problem I have with this is that it tends to turn a bit orange after awhile, yet again while Mac's products are great they need a better shade range for person like me who are in between nc45 and nc50
I had never found a foundation to match my skin tone so perfectly until I walked up to a MAC counter and tried this foundation. I have very sensitive skin and drugstore foundations make my skin itchy and oily. This foundation, however, is everything I had been looking for and more and I am NEVER turning back!! lol!
I am a NC40 in Studio Fix Fluid and I was finding it to be too matte (it emphasized my pores), so I decided to try Studio Tech. I am a NC43 in Studio Tech (NC40 & 42 were too peach). Last time I tried Studio Tech my skin was oily and it was not a good combination because it made me break out (because of the wax ingredient). My skin is now normal/dry and it works beautifully. It gives my skin a glowing, flawless appearance. I would say it is a light to medium coverage foundation at most. This is currently my go-to foundation.
After trying to make Studio Fix work, I swore off MAC foundations. Thanks to celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine, I decided to try cream foundation and I have not looked back since. This foundation has medium-buildable coverage and it makes my skin look like I have perfect skin. We all have different tones on out individual faces and Studio Tech helps to even it out when applied properly.
I love the Product so much because its a matte finish and you can build up the coverage, sometimes I feel like it dry its self out so i set it with my pressed powder but the only thing is that I wish there was colour between NC45 to NC50 in this foundation because I feel like Im a bit darker but its okay because no one notices it
I live for this foundation!!! I feel like its MAC's underdog! Typically forgotten however this foundation looks so natural on the skin applied with a flat foundation brush and this ridiculous!!! It's extremely hydrating for anybody who has dryer skin but it also does dries down to a pwd formula so it's perfect for anyone has oily skin as well
I think this product is good and you can wear it on its own and so forth. However I got a tiny bit of break out using this & got matched to a wrong colour which was a shade darker so I use it as a contour. However taking away from that, I believe It's great if you don't have easily irritated skin like mine.
