A one-step application of foundation and powder. Gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full-coverage finish. Long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. A real all-in-one. The choice of pros, and a long time favourite of M∙A∙C fans.
I've got combination/dry skin and with most powders the matte effect doesn't keep well into the day, however with M.A.C. Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation I've found a product that exceeds my expectations. The shade matches my skin so very well and it is difficult to find, considering I've got extremely fair skin. Lasts very well, usually up to 6 or more hours. With primer I've found it to last up to 12 hours. Great product, I've been using it for three years now and it is worth the investment. (side note: works very well with M.A.C. prolongwear concealer.)
I'm loving this powder! I use NW15 and find it to be a lot lighter than many of the MAC NW15 in liquid foundation - especially the NW15 Studio Fix Fluid! I often use this on it's own when I'm a hurry. I apply it with a kabuki brush and get really nice coverage from it. It can work on top of foundation too, but when I use it like that, I just use a regular powder brush since I don't want a lot of product on.
Be careful with it if you have dry skin though. Since it's matte, it tends to accentuate any dryness.
I'm obsessed with this stuff! It is worth every penny. The coverage is outstanding by itself, but if you apply a primer/lotion first you will be literally flawless. I don't even need to use concealer!
The only thing I don't like is that it transfers off on to everything. Clothes, your cellphone, etc.
This is my holy grail powder foundation. I've been using this for years and I've never found a better powder. The huge shade range is amazing - I don't think any other powder foundation has ever been pale enough for me until I found this. Will probably never stop repurchasing this.
I like this better than the mineralized powder. the coverage is decent and full.matte finish i use on occasion or special events I also have combination skin but this hasn't given me a problem.
