I am dealing with bad skin at the moment, so I bought this make up because I wanted something with full coverage. The coverage is really good, and my acne was hidden! But unfortunately - this make up makes me break out every time I use it. I even thought of using it for special occasions only, but even one day of wearing this makes me break out. I think it really clogs your pores, so if you have bad skin - I definitely wouldn't recommend this.
I switched to Clinique anti-blemish makeup, and even though it doesn't completely cover everything, and the overall look is a bit make-upy - it is really great for my skin and I am pleased.
This has been my foundation of choice for years now, I've tried to breakaway from it and used NARS and even drugstore brand foundations. I love this product, I'm addicted. I love how easy it is to build the coverage you want. The color always blends nicely with my skin and it's great for summer and winter! (mostly dry winter if you live in Alberta, Canada like me). The only downside to this is that is smells like a plastic almost.
Really disliked this foundation and will be sticking with my estee lauder double wear. I was badly matched to nc20 and the colour looked awful. However I could tell this foundation wouldnt be for me, I wouldn't say it is full coverage and it certainly didn't give me a flawless look. Smells awful too.
The Liquid MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation is, simply put: absolutely amazing.
It's a full-coverage foundation with (in true MAC fashion) a plethora of shades to choose from. It covers everything from redness to black heads, and does an amazing job at disguising pores.
This product has been my holy grail for the past year-or-so, and is my go-to for everyday wear as it literally lasts ALL DAY. When paired with a good translucent powder, this foundation is guaranteed to last in rain, or shine.
The only issue that I have with this foundation is the smell, particularly during a bad hangover- it has a very deep chemical smell that is bearable, but serves as a fresh reminder of the night before. The smell fades after a few seconds though, so it's not all bad.
The standard 30ml bottle will give me at least 2 1/2 months of heavy use -which is about 2-3 pumps per everyday application- which is somewhat excessive as a little goes a long way. When used sparingly, this could definitely last longer than four months.
Apply with fingers or a foundation brush for extra coverage- this product is amazing.
This foundation works great for my nights out! Or the nights I want a bit of extra coverage! It is a fully build able coverage which lasts..however it does make me a tad shiny after all lots of dancing ðŸ˜‰ but nothing a dash of powder can't fix! Doesn't break me out! The bottle is good size it's a little pricey but you don't need to use a lot of it so it does last quite a while! Although it doesn't come with a pump you have to buy it separately although definately worth it otherwise you will waste some of the product.
It gives a good coverage but being oily skinned it leaves me very shiny throughout the day and does go patchy. I have also had a numerous amount of break outs from this too. Overall it's very overrated and definitely not worth the money!
Really cakey, gives me a feeling of molded face, it's like I got tons of weight on my face, not comfortable, plus it's noticeable to others, and enhances even more pore appearance.
Disgusting... Thick. Sticky. Smells horrible. Worst colour for my skin tone. I'm yello tone but the foundation matched to me made me look like a Simpson. Def do not buy!
Horrible foundation , in about an hour after applying on my face it looked like someone has splashed a horrible sticky orange mud all over my face !! Has tried most of the foundations from Mac and always been so disappointed !! They just not for me !! Them made my acne even worse , I suggest get a sample before wasting your money .
I think this is an excellent foundation. The key is you must cleanse properly at night. It's a hard wearing foundation and requires a double cleanse at night to remove. The finish I feel is natural when applied with a real techniques stipple brush. Matte finish but not dry looking just natural. Literally doesn't budge all day. I use nw25. I tend to use this at night as I love bare minerals for a day look. I do agree though it has a very strange smell but is dissipates quickly x
