This foundation is just ok for my skin type. I have fair skin that is very dry. I felt like this accentuated my flaky skin and was not moisturizing at all. Yes, it covered my post acne marks but it also felt too cakey even when I applied a thin layer. I think this is better suited for oiler skin types.

I REALLY wanna like this foundation. I've bought it 3 times. The first time the color didnt match, the second time it was fine but i didn't use it often so it turned a weird color, and the third time ive used it everyday for like...3 months now? It's a good foundation. It doesn't break me out but it gets greasy after a while. I have combination skin. I live in TX though so its hot 90% of the time. It's a good foundation, but I'm not buying it again. It's good for dry skin I suppose.

damn. I love studio fix powder foundation, but not liquid. it broke me out PLUS it's not smooh to apply. maybe cuz I'm so used to smoothness of MUFE HD foundation, but it's hard to blend out with brush and it break out my acne prone oily skin.

LOVE this foundation!!! I have tried soooo many different foundations from high end to mineral to drugstore. Clinique, Estee Lauder, the raved Revlon Colorstay, raved Bare Minerals, Rimmel, I mean tons way too many to list, trying to find the perfect one and I found it. Either foundations would make you look cakey or melt off in about 2 hours. I've always lived in a very humid climate (think 80-100% every day) and 100+ heat index.. yeah. MAC Studio Fix Fluid holds up. I use the powder by MAC also, and when it does start to need a touch up, the foundation will just look wet, does that make sense? Like a glowy wet not like it's about to melt off your face, just touch up with powder. Gives a glowy look not a flat, cakey look like Estee Lauder and colorstay gave me. Never looks cakey. Blends so easily, it takes a while to set and is so creamy. A little goes a long way so it will last a long time. Also I can plop a little extra over blemishes or under eyes and blend in for concealer and you cant tell, there isnt a darker spot on your face like with other foundations. Looks good in pictures or webcamming. I'm in love I'd reccomend to everyone. And at 25-ish for a bottle its a great deal.

After many, many attempts at getting the right colour (due to staff applying make up at busy times in fake shop lighting), I am finally happy with the colour NC15, and on a night out with fake tan I use NC20. The consistency of product and texture is very smooth, and leaves a very nice dewy look if not used with powder. I had my make up done at Milton Keynes counter for my graduation, and the assistant gave me a tip to apply a light covering of foundation, do all my eye make up, and then apply another layer of foundation, then finish with powder/blush etc to finish. This is the best tip I have been told and it works really well with this product as u can apply afew good layers of coverage without it looking "cakey" or too much. I would also say this lasts longer with a light dusting of mac mineral skin powder over the top. =]

I have used Studio Fix in NW20 for a year of so, for night time/occasion wear. While I have the wrong colour, NW20 is too pink and dark for me (fair/pale redhead with neutral to yellow undertones) - why do sales assistants always do this??!! - the coverage isn't too bad (better than revlon colourstay for me). It isn't great though either, very slightly chalky and cake like, but if I mix with some bio-oil or maracuja oil, and make sure my face is moisturised well, I get a 'better' result. Slightly dewy and more natural/flawless like. Of course the colour is off, so I have been mixing with my 'too yellow for me' MAC Select Sheer NC25. The mix still comes out too dark so this mix is and will be left for summer time. If I do buy again, I will try the NC range, NC 15 or 20 maybe. I am using up now my small sample pot of Prescriptives Custom Blend, oh dear when that runs out (Prescriptives don't ship to Australia and I have lost my custom blend notes too :( I won't repurchase yet in a hurry though, I want to try some other foundations now, perhaps Estee Lauder Double Wear, Aldi Lacura, Miessence, which I have heard are all quite good.

Disclaimer: I hate foundation in general. I think that it is a necessary evil in some situations, but if I could get away with it, I would never wear it. I am forever working on improving my complexion ($$$) so that I will not have to wear foundation. Ever. Okay, now that that's out of the way, this one is pretty decent. It provides good coverage, low transfer, photographs well and doesn't break me out. I wear NC44, which is a very good (but not perfect) match for my skin tone. This foundation has been fairly reliable when I've needed to use it and I will re-purchase until I can find a perfect (or closer) match for my skintone.

Recently my sister gave me her MAC foundation because the shade was a little bit to dark for her skin tone, I thought I would give it a go. I've been using drugstore foundations for 3 years and recently got the Maybeline Fit Me, which made me extremely oily! I thought I would give this a try because I need a good foundation for back to school that will help with oil control. My skin is not very oily but the Maybeline made it horrible. Anyways, this product is amazing! Its not to heavy and a little goes a long way! I find that my skin is not oily at all, and apart from a powder touch up in the afternoon, its still looking great! I think this product is for more of an oily skin type, my sister has drier skin and it does not seem to work as well for her. But I would definitely recommend it! Apart from the price, which isn't the best.. But its a great product so I am willing to spend the money!
Great product!
