Heavy, cakey, did not control oil well at all. It felt like it was just sitting on my face. One of the worst liquid foundations I've tried.

I finally decided to invest in this foundation. MAC is pretty expensive in NZ so I was a bit reluctant to spend alot on this. I got matched to NC25 which I think is a good match for me. I can get it blended nicely without any harsh foundation line on me. I use the ELF powder brush to blend this in and does an amazing job. Coverage I say is medium, the way I usually like my foundation to be. However, I hate that this broke me out. I know its this foundation since it was the only new product I was using for my face. I also ended up looking quite oily after a couple of hours. Since its quite expensive I think I'll stick to Revlon Colourstay since it is cheaper and doesn't break me out. Plus, it's just as good as the studio fix in my opinion.

Love this product> I use it as a concealer. I'm a nw43 in powder but nc50 with this studio fix fluid. In order to buy this I suggest going to mac in person.

Awesome stuff, good coverage. At first, I thought it was a bit too yellow for me, but the consultant put it on anyway and it was fine! I don't think I'll buy any other brand... but I guess I won't have to because this bottle lasts forever!

I really do enjoy this foundation. I have a pump on it, so WITH the pump, I love the packaging. It definitely is annoying that a pump doesn't come standard with it, but at least it does have the option. I apply this either with a wet sponge, or with my fingers. Both application methods are great. I find that if I use a brush, it will look a little streaky, since it dries so fast.I love that it dries though. I hate when a foundation never really dries, so that is a huge benefit of SFF.My color is NC25. This is close, but still a little too yellow for me. I have neutral to pinkish undertones, and I find that both the NC and the NW don't really match perfectly, but the NC is better. That's the main downside I have with this. But, it's pretty close, and it actually blends into my neck pretty well, so it's not a huge deal. I also don't like that it doesn't last all day. I have oily skin, and it will last for about 6 to 8 hours, and after that I definitely need to use blotting sheets and powder to keep it looking nice.The bottle lasts forever since you really only need one pump. I love that it has amazing coverage, so after I apply a super thin layer to my whole face, I then can use it as my concealer by patting a more condensed layer over all my acne/acne scars, and it does a great job covering it.I don't think this has made my acne any worse, but it definitely hasn't made it any better. I generally always have like 4-5 active acne spots on my face, but it's nothing that SFF can't cover! I even will use this for my under eyes if I don't have any concealer at hand. I have oily skin, so I love how matte it is, but I would see how those with dry skin would hate it, as I would imagine it would make your face feel tight judging by how fast it dries.All things considered, this is a pretty awesome foundation, and once I go through the stock pile of foundation that i've accumulated, I'd definitely consider getting this again, just because I love the coverage, but yet how natural it can look if applied correctly. Great job, MAC!

I think this is kind of product where you have to use a complete set make up ritual (i.e primer, skin mattified, etc) and bought the pump. It looks good at first 3 hours but then my face will melt away. The good side is this product is light (despite the medium coverage), easy to blend and the color is a true match with my skin (I am a NC35).I think when I return to Mac, I'll buy Pro Long Wear instead for the coverage.

I wanted to like this after reading about its great coverage and how it was good for oily skin, but it did not work for me. It was great when I first put it on. It had a natural matte finish, but after two hours, my face was slick with oil. Not only did it not help with the oil, it rubbed off on EVERYTHING. This is not a product I'd buy again, especially for $26 a bottle. :/

I bought this on a whim when I was having a bit of a skin problem, as I heard it gives a good medium/high buildable coverage, which it definitely does.I have noticed the foundation seems to darken over time, and read somewhere this is due to oxidisation. I am extremely pale, and even the lightest shade (NC15) was far too dark for my skin tone, and gave me a kind of orange tint.... not nice!It gives a very matte finish, and I have combination skin so it had a tendency to look a bit patchy on my dry areas. However for someone with oilier skin, I think this would be great!Over all, I probably wouldn't buy this product again, just because it's slightly too heavy for me for every day use and the orange tint is a bit unsightly on my very pale skin!

I wanted so bad to like this foundation as it's a lovely texture and provides good coverage. I'm quite pale but I find that using the shade that matches me perfectly doesn't cover anything and makes dry patches look worse, so I use nc30 which is about two shades darker however I do fake tan so theres no horrifying line. For starters, it goes on nicely, a little goes a long way. Even with my very dry skin it doesnt stay on all day. Two years ago I had cystic acne so reviews that this could cause it scared me slightly. I did find it gave me pimples around my mouth after a few days use but nothing awful. This week though, having switched back to it, I now have a cyclic pimple next to my mouth. This hasn't happened in two years since I came off accutane so it's enough to warn me off studio fix fluid for good.

this foundation doesnt really work on dry skin as it makes the skin more dry and makes dry patchs stand out more. It gives a matt finish but not dull matt like revlon colorstay for oily/combo,its quite a nice matt finish.the coverage is good, what i can say i like about this foundation is that it makes the skin look really smooth. As i have normal to dry and prefer a slightly satin/dewy finish i mix this with chanel vitalL or rimmel renew&lift. this foundation makes everything more smoother when mixed in with other things.
