Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 by thebib1
This is nice-blends in much better with a foundation brush than with fingers, huge 50ml squeezy bottle for £14.50 GBP.Colour range good although I for some reason had to buy both NC35 and NC45 to make 40.However, with my yellow-toned skin prone to alot of colour change from weather/fake tan etc this is the best option,especially seeing as my skin is yellow-toned-first range I've found which get actually match my skin colour!Looks v.natural,honestly doesn't shift even when you touch your face,can adjust coverage although not for those wanting v.light cover.Although it is meant to be a matte product I found it only semi-matte, but I like a healthy glow rather than flat look.However, I've only started using it recently (summer) and don't know how matte it would be in the winter.It is an excellent product and keeps skin hydrated, alhtough you still need concealer for heavier coverage round the nose etc.
UPDATE 27 Apr 2008: Really don't like this product. Doesn't go on all that evenly so you end up putting more and more on. Controls shine to begin with because you've got so much caked on but shine still comes out later in the day. Too orangey, don't think it helped my breakout either. It just feels like the consistency is almost kind of waxy that it shifts across the face too much. For NC35ish women who want coverage I HIGHLY recommend Clarins Teint Confort in 09 Cappucine - MUCH less orange than anything else I've tried, and buildable and blendable coverage (I wear a full-face motorbike helmet every day and this stays puts miles better than the MAC which is a creamier consistency), only thing is you need a tiny touch of powder to make sure it isn't too glowey if you tend to get shine. It's my HG though, despite the glowiness. I'm going to try Estee Lauder Lucidity and see how that works with it.
