Hey guys :)
I've been looking into powder foundations a lot lately because with my liquid foundation I find I've been taking a while to get dressed In the mornings, and I'm really just looking for something that will be quick, but still give me that flawless face all day long.
I've been looking at two powder foundations the first one being MAC's studio fix powder foundation and the second one being Makeup forever's pro finish powder foundation
I've heard great things about these two products but I'm really indecisive about which one I should get.
Can you guys give me your input about which one you think is better? Or even if there's any other powder foundations that you guys recommend. Btw I do have combination, dry and sensitive skin. So I need something with good coverage, that will keep me matte all day. Help please!
laura mercier loose powder foundation is incredible
Oh okaay, I really like that brand cause I use a Laura mercier concealer, I'll look into that :) thanks
I've heard really good things about Coastal Scents pressed powder foundations and have been thinking about giving that a try. Has anyone else tried it?
Laura Mercier balance and brighten really even outs the skin tone and makes you have that beautiful healthy glow !!
I've been looooooving my MAC MSFN.
mac studio fix powder foundation is a staple item! i will repurchase forever it has medium to full coverage on its own and if u want just photoshoped looking skin, you can dust a small amount over ur liquid foundation...ive probably gone through like 6 containers lol! i swear by it
I love no7 powder and i always go back to it, and it matches my skin colour so well:)
I love Mineralize Skin Finish Natural or MUFE Duo Mat powder foundation when I need quick makeup. My skin is combination oily most of the time, but in the winter I do get drier skin. I always set my powders with a setting spray or FIX+ to prevent the cakey or powdery finish powder foundations can leave you with. The Duo Mat in particular is also very easy to build coverage over areas with blemishes, without having to go over your whole face again.

If it's a choice between MAC's Studio Finish and MUFE's Pro Finish Powder, I'd go with the MUFE and here's why:
Studio Fix Powder does indeed provide great coverage, but that's about where it ends for me. I find that it breaks apart fairly quickly, and in order to maintain the powder's integrity and consistency, you have to apply more on top of more with this product. If your skin is fairly oily, forget about it.... Your face will look like an oil slick by the end of the day. In addition, I believe this product clogs pores and creates breakouts. I have never used this product on anyone that hasn't broken out after wearing it. Some people like to use this product wet, but I have never in all my years seen Studio Fix look good wet to dry. In my opinion, this product only survives because of the reputation of the line. In today's day and age, this product is becoming archaic.
Now, MUFE's powder foundation is a bit different. It's made with a more compressed pigment and you can apply it dry for a more matte look, or you can apply it wet for a sheer look that is buildable, and it looks really great. This powder foundation is truly long lasting, unlike MAC's Studio Fix. It is so lightweight and it just feels goods on the skin. It's almost like wearing no makeup at all: With Studio Fix, when you apply it to your face, you will most definitely feel the heaviness of the product.
I had the same problem I bought Mac studio tech and it goes on fast and it's amazing coverage. Deff a product you should try.
