Studio tech is a great foundation, my face looks radiant,healthy.I would repurchase.
I finally found a foundation that blends seamlessly & goes on smoothly. I'm a NW43 & have a hard time finding a foundation that doesn't have too many orange undertones. Studio Tech gives me a flawless look & doesn't feel heavy when applying. One application is enough for me, it lasts w/o having to touch up. Am totally hooked.
I think I bought this a shade too dark at NC20, but it’s not too far off so that if I blend enough it looks fine. This is a creamy, thick, compact foundation that I think wears like a heavy foundation...it’s so heavy it could double as a concealer for me, a little goes a LONG way. Good for a flawless, too-good-to-be-true finish that photographs like a dream, but I think the formula emphasizes pores a little bit. This is far too heavy for me for an everyday foundation, I’m not real sure what I was thinking when I bought it. (To be fair though, I hardly ever wear foundation.) Although foundation is a product I could give up forever, am glad I’ve got it in my collection, it’s a great fall-back product when I want a flawless and well done made-up face, it looks very polished. I don’t NEED a powder over this in the beginning of the day, it creates a pretty semi-matte look when applied sheerly. I will use a pressed powder later in the day to calm down shine. I haven’t had any breakouts because of this product, even around my oily t-zone. Not particularly budge-proof, it will rub off onto clothing, but if not touched, it lasts all day with no weird/funky look or sliding.
The compact is a chunky with a compartment beneath the foundation to store an application sponge. IMO, the compact is too big and fat to carry in my purse, but I don’t need to, I’ve never had to reapply throughout the day. I’ve been quite happy with the thick quality sponge but prefer to use my fingers (I use my fingers to apply most of my makeup, it’s just easier for me). Glides on easily, blends very well and holds onto other makeup applied over it (like blush and powder).
At $27.50 this isn’t cheap stuff but there are a few products I’m willing to splurge on and I always think skin makeup makes that cut. Overall I’m quite happy and I will repurchase.

I love this! I have yellow-toned spot prone skin, so any red spots stand out a mile, but I can cover most things with this just by carefully layering it with a concealer brush. It cuts down dramatically on the amount of fiddling around with concealer I need to do on bad skin days, and lasts for ages. I would pay anything just to be able to spend longer in bed in the morning, but I'm always pleasantly suprised by the price, considering how long it lasts. I have oily/combination skin, and I don't feel like I need powder after this, except to set it for longer when applied to particularly vicious zits.
My only negative comment is that the sponges seem to break down quite quickly, so I end up buying refills more often than I'd like to. Otherwise, a fantastic product.
I love Studio Tech. I use NC35 and it is a little bit darker than my skin tone, but I like that. NC30 is perfect but since it's summer I know I'm going to get more tanned. I use this foundation only on problem spots such as the redness on my cheeks and a little bit of discoloration along my jawline. It blends flawless and leaves my skin moisturized. I apply this once in the morning with a wedge sponge and it stays pretty much all day. I touch up with studio fix if needed.
I just got some Studio Tech foundation (NW20) in a swap. Usually I'm not a big fan of compact cream foundations, but I love MAC products, so I decided to try this. I love this stuff!! You need to apply this with a sponge (or maybe you do it with a brush too) but it goes on very smooth and seems to last quite awhile. I've found that compact cream foundations sometimes go on a bit cakey...not the case at all with Studio Tech! I would definetly repurchase this!
I love MAC, they make great products. The studio tech foundation is definitely their best foundation. I used to used the Studio Fix but I didnt feel like it gave me enough coverage and since my face is oily, by lunchtime i would have to reapply. Studio Tech provides much more coverage.
I was a little skeptical in spending 27.50 on foundation but I was so tired of not finding the right kind. So I finnally caved in and bought studio tech NC 35, and I absolutely love it. Its glides on smoothly and covers up all my imperfections. Its definately my new foundation of choice.
Love it! Way better than Studio Fix, which I found would need several reapplications throughout the day, and accented the dry spots on my combination skin far too much. This stuff is great if you're prone to getting dry skin, and its creamy texture works great with all skin types.
However, It's not a great product to use in the summer months when your skin is oilier, as it gets runny and becomes cakey by the end of the day. I switched over to MAC studio fix Liquid foundation, and had much better results with that.
Edit: I used this product for years, and ended up hating it. It was runny, the staying power was horrible and looked great for a total of one to two hours before my face began to melt and I resembled Sylvester Stallone. I would not touch this product again - and if you must use a MAC foundation I strongly suggest Studio Fix LIQUID foundation only. As of now, I am on the prowl for the perfect foundation - and no MAC will be fitting the bill any time soon.
I have had a love/hate relationship with foundations for many of my 40 years and several weeks ago, I switched to Studio Tech NC30. I can't say enough how happy I've been. It just glides on my face and never gets streaky during the day. A little goes a long way and it just feels like silk. I can have as little or as much coverage as I want. It's definitely my new foundation
