Finally bought this for the first time about a month and a half ago. I have been using the Studio Fix powder for approximately 5 years now. I was getting bored of the Kat Von D lock it tattoo foundation, so I felt it was time to try a new one.Well.. They are extremely similar, lol. It is pretty thick, I definitely suggest getting the pump, I didn't want to pay for it so I didn't get it, lol. But I would suggest it. It also smells strongly of paint like the Kat Von D one, but it has amazing coverage, and the scent settles once it is on your skin. As many know, MAC has an amazing shade range. I am really impressed with the foundation, it provided me great coverage. I apply it with a damp beauty blender.

Nice packaging but smells like paint. This was one of the first foundations I ever tried and I'd never even be tempted to repurchase. It clings to dry patches that I never even knew existed!!!! The colour of the foundation was matched to my skin tone in the store by a Mac professional yet after a couple of days when I tried it on at home it was far too yellow for my complexion. I find this a highly over hyped and priced foundation. If your skin is dry like mine don't bother with this foundation, try Mac's face and body or chanel's perfection lumiere for more coverage.

So far probably the best foundation I have tried. The oil control is good enough (I still need to blot throughout the day), you can also powder and doesn't look cakey. It didn't cause me any breakouts (surprisingly, considering this is a heavy coverage foundation), and has good staying power. What I don't like about this is the coverage - it's really heavy, and I prefer medium coverage foundations which look more natural, but all the other ones tend to fade away throughout the day. Another thing I hate are the shades. I have tried all the lightest shades and the closest match I found is the NW10 which does sometimes look unnatural on my face as it has pink undertones in it and I am pale with slight yellow/neutral undertones. I have also noticed the colors tend to turn a little bit darker after several hours of wearing.

So!!! I am the type of person who will try a million foundations out and always keep looking for more no matter what, but I have to say that I was extremely impressed with this foundation! I have weird skin, sometimes I'm oily in my Tzone, sometimes i have dry patches, & sometimes my face breaks out and this foundation made me feel flawless! I defiantly think that this product is worth it! Don't be afraid to ask for samples as well! xoxo <3

Ok, So my skin type is so weird. I feel like it is EXTREMELY oily yet it can get dry and on the tip of my nose get cakey. That being said this is my second day with this foundation. I am in the shade NC25 which was a perfect match for me because I am kind of pale with a Yellow undertone(Dominican, Bolivian, Guatemalan). For moisturizer I use the Murad Mattifier which is pretty pricey about $40.00 but well worth the price. I use it about everyday and the little bottle lasts me at least 2 months. I used to use the Loreal Infallible Pro Matte which I thought was my god send. For the first few hours it looked amazing but after lunch time and a little powder touch up it was definitely cakey and by the end of the day came completely off(used with Rimmel Stay Matte Primer). So I decided to give MAC a try, mind you I have NEVER been in a Mac store. So I ended up going in there for the Prolong wear however the beauty consultant tried both on me and I liked the finish of the Studio Fix much better and she let me know that this foundation would keep me Matte throughout the day. I looked up so many reviews about this product and the one thing I kept hearing people complain about was the smell. People, it is not that big of a deal! Yes it had I feel like a typical foundation smell but not bad enough to the point where I would not buy it. Anyways, so I apply this foundation with my Murad moisturizer and MAC prep + prime Viage and Visage whatever it's called. I would say this is definitely a medium coverage however it is very buildable. With about 2 coats I was able to get the almost full coverage face I was looking for. The finish is absolutely beautiful but I will say after about 5 hours my face was semi-oily not too bad and it was mainly in my nose and cheeks. What I ended up loving about this product and why I will repurchase is that I used my Clean N Clear oil absorbing wipes, dabbed the oil off and my face looks just like it did when I applied my make up. With the Loreal it would look disgusting and would pretty much come off. So, overall doesn't keep you 100% matte, I would say 75%-80% but with a little oil absorbing wipe you can get that flawless looks back. Now let's see what it will look like after 10 hours of wear ;-)

This foundation is very thick and cakey so it should stay on a lot longer than it actually does. I found that after a few hours it would start to go patchy and sink into dry patches on my skin even when i had applied primer and setting powder. The shade was also completely off, i was matched to NW25 in the mac store and it made me far too orange looking!! My skin tone is more of a neutral and i prefer to wear cool toned makeup as i self tan, i told the mac worker this but she said the NW25 was perfect. Ive now realised that i should have been matched to NC20/25 but even with the right shade i would not purchase this foundation again, it only lasted me around 3 months which i would not expect from a high end brand, i have many foundations from drugstore that last much longer. Also it completely broke me out, the thick cakey consistency of the product completely blocks the pores and is very hard to remove. Lastly, the bottle does not contain a pump, meaning it is very difficult and messy to get the product out and then its difficult to get the remaining liquid out when the product is nearly finished which is a complete waste

This foundation was my very first MAC product. I asked the lady at the counter to sample my skin colour and she gave me NC15 which was slightly more orangey than I hoped it would be. It was great for hiding large pores and acne and made my skin look flawless. The downsides are that it is quite thick and heavy, so was recommended by my dermatologist to opt for something that won't clog my pores. It also didn't last the whole day.In the winter, my skin is obviously more dry and it tends to flake off and look cake by the end of the day. This is definitely a better foundation for oily skin and for in the summer.I have since bought this product again

First and foremost I love the coverage this foundation would give me it gives you a full coverage, beautiful matte finish and I would always get compliments every single time I would wear this foundation , but unfortunately it made me break out very bad mostly on top of my forehead so I had to stop using it. & I've been hearing from a lot of other people who use this foundation as well saying the same exact thing that it made them break out very badly which is a shame bc I love the way this foundation went on! I have no idea what's in the formula that's not going for sensitive skin , but even then my skin isn't even that sensitive. I guess you wouldn't know if it'll break you out until you actually use it. I give it a 3 and the price is pretty up there but Out of all the makeup brand Mac has got to be the least expensive one.

I love this foundation! i just use if im going out at night and it is perfect for that! Medium to full coverage and does not break me up. Also it is PERFECT for dehydarted skins like mine this is one of the few foundations that actually blends into my skin

This was the first mac foundation I had ever purchased and will probably be my last. I didn't get on with this foundation what so ever. This is a medium to full coverage foundation. I have combination skin which is more on the dry side depending on the weather. I have tried to apply this with different techniques, beauty blender, brush and fingers. But it always seems to sit on top of my skin looking cakey. It has a very strong smell almost paint like. I feel as if its way over priced and over hyped just like many Mac foundations which has put me off purchasing any more. There for I will not be repurchasing this.
