I actually really LOVE this foundation,I got compliments on how smooth my face looked,works great coverage,great oil-control,I am usually an NC30 but got it in NC25 because it oxidizes,& I didnt breakout at all

I think the consistency was nice but I got NC15 and it was WAY TOO DARK! Everyone raves about how light it is...this was not light...it left an orangey hue on my face and neck, even when i tried blending over and over again.
so really fair girls, dont get this..Its a shame though cause I love the consistency and the fact that it really does cover nicely! Everything

I was previously using Dermablend foundation but after a while i noticed it made me look much older than i actually was so i decided to try something else and went for MAC brand.I regret deeply that i made the decision to get MAC studio fix fluid and used it with Mac studio fix powder plus foundation.I got HUGE cystic acne all over my face from this product.I am already dealing with acne but i RARELY get cystic acne.I should have listened to the other reviewers who complained about it messing up their faces.Now i cannot even go out cos it's really bad :( .I had so much hopes of liking MAC considering this is my very first purchase of this brand.Never again will i purchase any MAC products for my face.

Good coverage, nice color match BUT transfers like crazy and looks pasty. Won't be repurchasing.

I would only buy this product again if I was tight on money and couldn't afford the more expensive brands that I have fallen in love with (unfortunately!)
It's not baaad, but I am just not blown away, and at around £18 it's not the cheapeast item out there.
Here are the positives:
1) It's really long lasting, I put it on in the morning and it wont budge - fantastical!
2) It does do a much better job than your drug store brands (and I have tried nearly all drug store brands out there.) It feels nicer on the face, covers better, lasts longer, looks better in photographs, etc...
and the negatives (and the reasons why I wont buy it again)
1) It doesn't hide my pores. I have the biggest pores on the planet that no amount of primer (although it makes a massive improvment) wont hide them, and the foundation realllly doesn't make a difference.
2) It doesn't hide my acne very well. I have PCOS, so I suffer from acne outbreaks alot. Mac hasn't made my acne teribbly worse (although my skin is suffering from wearing it nearly every day) but it wont hide it well either. I need to plaster industrial strength concealer under the foundation, add the foundation and then plaster more concealer on top to hide it. The foundation alone doesn't feel too cakey (although I know when I am wearing it - I have tried some brands that just feel like magic) but once I've got the works on top I feel like i'm drowning in face paint.
3) I was told it was buildable - the more layers you add, the more it hides. My foundation just looks more caked the more I add and if I have some bad boy spots on my face, no number of layers can hide their very angry heads.

So far, this is my favorite foundation. I like the coverage which is medium (and buildable to full) and the finish with is matte. My only gripe with this is the color line on the pale end of the spectrum (I guess this goes for all MAC foundations, except maybe the mineral ones). I am paler than NC15, so if I wear this without altering it in some way, it looks orangey on my skin. I discovered though that if I mix two pumps of strobe liquid into a pump of this, the color and texture is nicely adjusted for my skin. I would love to find a foundation that required no adjustment, but so far I haven't found it. Until then, it's SFF for the win.

Ok foundation, but I expected better from MAC... quite natural/light finish, mac MUA suggested this would really benefit with being buffed in with a duofibre brush (which does make it look better). Wear time is much shorter than pro long wear on me, but colour is more natural
woudl not buy again - for price, i can get a better quality foundation (BTW - revlon color stay is much better than this, as is No 7)

I like this foundation, but it is not my favorite. Its a beautiful foundation, it leaves a nice matte finish, but it is very heavy, and I find it kind of hard to blend unless I use a brush. I do really think this is good for a full coverage makeup, but it is too much for my everyday use.

I really like this foundation but for different reasons other than the basic use. I find the studio fix fluid too heavy and "makeup-y" (if that makes any sense at all! lol) it has a very flat shine-free finish, which can come across very unnatural, however I can see why oiler skin-types will worship this foundation.It has a very thick consistency and can be much more easier to use with a dispenser pump which you can buy separately. I use this as somewhat of a foundation concentrate, like if another foundation doesn't give me enough coverage, I mix a little of this and Perfecto! I have dry skin and don't like the look of flatness on my face so I prefer Pro Longwear foundation, SFF is a bittersweet foundation for me but I may repurchase if I run out, we'll just have to see...

Ok, I wish it came with the pump I mean that just makes sense to me but whatever. even with the pump it's a bit pricey of a foundation but hey, thats what it's like these days. I have been wearing SFF for a month now and have had no breakouts whatsoever. Can you say freaking awesome? I was so afraid this was going to tear up my skin.
With that said, I have dry skin and walked into mac to buy the studio sculpt. But the MA talked me into the SFF and to mix it with the care blend oil to make it more moisturizing. I absolutely love it.
I will say she matched me at NW15. Im usually an NC20 but this looked great on me. It is slight bit orange I won't lie but compared to the revlon colorstay buff (pale!) it looks so much better on me. The revlon made me casper the ghost white. Ick.
I love the pump and the cap it came with, such a great idea to cap the pump and bring it travelling or something, and I love the staying power it doesnt melt off my face and it still looks great 10 hours later when I go to take it off. I will most definetly purchase this again I think I just found my HG foundation! Yay.
