Mac studio fix powder foundation is the best of it's kind. the coverage is natural,but it still covers alot.and the wide range of colours means you'll aways find a match. as a consumer and a makeup artist, it unbeatable. HOWEVER that being said, studio fix aint for everybody!!! how the you find the product depends on various factors! First,the condition of your skin,your skin type and the climate you live in. I personally have ok skin, prone to break outs every month with acne scarring.also,i have really oily skin and i live in Africa! What i do is,first i use the best oil control lotion in the world(Living nature balancing day lotion)|, i use mac select-cover up concealer and mac blot powder. And i'm good to go! the powder is amazing. i have used various other powders and foundations,but i am never without studio fix. if you have really bad skin though, you might want to try and liquid or cream foundation.also,i use studio fix daily and it has not caused me to break out.i tend not to use it when im going out clubbin though, as i find liquid foundations last longer through the sweat!
All in all, you'll love this powder of u have good skin or not so bad skin and you want a natural look with decent coverage.my friends that have flawless skin all use this,including some of my clients. However, throw away the sponge!Only use a brush to apply studio fix and you'll see excellent results!
The color choices, because its a MAC product, are great! I like the idea of a powder foundation, but this one is definitely not for me. I have to wear sunscreen under it and when I do, the powder accentuates my pores and makes them look soooo deep and awful. I advise anyone thinking about this powder to test it out carefully in all kinds of lighting.
When I first purchased this product I was in love. The coverage was great and my skin looked flawless. I have been using this product for about 11 months and I am not so sure that I am in love anymore. I still love the coverage, but by the end of the day my face looks oily and my face seems to always break out when wearing this makeup. I have heard "Once you go MAC you never go back" but I am thinking about going back to anything but MAC.
finely miled powder, good coverage. exellent color-match! to bad the oil-control is just ok. i need one with great oil-control!
I really like my MAC studio fix powder...I think it covers great and evenly...it does have a little bit of thickness to it but it still gives a natural look that i love and last a very long time....definatly worth the money.
Love this Powder a little goes a Long Way!!!..I dont usually apply studio fix all over my face with the sponge, since sponges absorb foundation. unstead with a face powder brush i use it to lock in my foundation for a long lasting face!!
Bah! at first i 'thought' i liked this product.but now, a couple weeks later i realize, the color is a little too dark, and it covers funny. It looks like its caked on, even though it dosnt cover even that much.and i use a foundation powder brush,not the sponge. now i am breaking out in clogged pores allover my chin and cheek. EDIT. it is now november and all the little tiny clogged pores on my chin and cheek have exploded in to a full on 2month acne attack. it has gotten so bad and is just barely calming down. but now i am faced with horrific redmarks. i have thankfuly found EveryDay Minerals a month back and is working beautifuly to cover these redmarks, and not causing any more breakouts. and i have also found my EXACT foundation match. and i mean PERFECT. my skin, in powder form :) MAC foundations are unfortunatly CRAP!
I've been using this for the past week or so and so far-so good.. I love it, actually! :) It makes my face feel and look really smooth and evens out my skin tone... It doesn't really cover really red spots, but I put some concealer on them and its ok...
I apply it with a sponge and then buff it in with kabuki brush.. looks really natural!
i love this product. it gives amazing coverage for such a lightweight powder. and the packaging couldn't be better, the sponge and mirror are so convenient!
This product was a disaster for me from start to finish, I've tried dozens of powder foundations as I have pretty oily skin and liquid ones slip straight off, I decided to switch to studio fix so I could get a better colour match. I used the powder with a foundation brush instead of the sponge supplied to avoid looking powdery but the finish was still cakey and very un-natural. I washed the brushed religously in anti-bacterial liquid but still my face started to break out, this could only have been from the studio-fix. You get yourself into a vicious circle because the worse your skin gets the more powder you apply, then making your skin even worse. It also made my skin oilier and oxidised badly, especially on warm days. Just a couple of weeks after I stopped using this product my skin had improved and the oiliness subsided. Would never touch this stuff again.
