Overall, beautiful foundation. Decent staying power, even though I have oily skin, and I dance a lot. Coverage you can control, you can go from light to full, depending on your preferance. It also looks really nice in photos. My only complaints are it doe

I think this foundation is okay, but it's definitely not the best foundation out there. It's easy to blend, but it's quite sticky. I have to apply layers of powder just to get rid of the sticky feeling on my face. It has great coverage and good for combination skin, but i'm not satisfied with it. My Coastal Scents HD Foundation is better than this foundation.

nice coverage but definitely NOT for oily skin people. i always have to use blotting sheets every now and then to remove the oils. i still am using it for the sake of consuming it. doesn't give me breakouts tho. but unfortunately, im not buying this product ever again.

Love this foundation. I'm a NW20. It's a fantastic cream texture that can easily build from a medium coverage to heavy. I found this is best applied with a good textured egg shaped sponge (I've used beautyblender), or a stippling brush in a circular motion. You have to watch it around hair lines and be sure to blend. Since it's a thicker texture, it's hard to fully empty the container. I had to cut mine open and scraped it into little jars. There was still weeks worth of applications with the amount left inside the container.

Amazing coverage! We chose this foundation to wear on our sister's wedding since it comes out so good in photos and certainly weren't disappointed when we saw the album. I wear this in NC35 with NW30 Studio Sculpt Concealer and MAC's Select sheer loose powder in NC30 (all selected by the MAC salesperson) and I have a perfectly flawless face for at least 6 hours. The finish is slightly dewy and it feels very light-weight on the skin. The consistency is very thick though and despite previous reviewers comments, I find it very hard to blend this with my fingers. Using a sponge just makes the product go away, but I have found success with using a foundation brush and leaving the product on the skin for a while before some final gentle strokes with the brush or fingers to settle it into the skin. There is one thing with this foundation though which can be annoying: I find Studio Sculpt NC35 to be slightly darker than other MAC foundations in NC35 (I also have the Sudio Tech powder foundation and foundation stick in NC35 and they are a perfect match to my skin). It looks fine when you apply it but later on it darkens on my skin to at least one shade darker than mine. The MAC salesperson did warn that this would happen as the 'Studio Sculpt oxidises when it comes into contact with the air and will darken slightly' (her words), but at the time I did not think it would be a significant change. It's still a very good foundation and for me the colour works fine in the summer when I am a bit more tanned but in winter the NC35 is simply too dark and I swap to other foundations.

I really don't like this foundation. It looks cakey over my acne and its just too much. I'd say its about medium coverage, but it looks thicker than that. This does feel lightweight on my skin, but it certainly doesn't look it. Studio Sculpt also has this unpleasant play-doh smell that is quite strong. It makes me feel sick and it lingers for a while even after you wash it off. Don't make the mistake I did and think that if you have acne you must wear full coverage or absolute layers and layers. I wear mineral makeup instead and it looks a lot more natural, covering about 30-40% of my marks and acne. You need to let your skin and pores breathe or you'll just break out more!

I've tried countless amounts of foundation (and I mean countless) and nothing has come so close to my natural skin colour (nc20) and nothing has stayed on quite like this one. It's a beautiful foundation that gives a slightly dewy effect which I adore, having dry skin myself. Suprisingly it does have good staying power for me, combined with the studio sculpt concealer in nw20 to cover my under eyes. It lasts for around 8 hours on me which is amazing. I have definately found my HG foundation, and highly recomed it!

I've been using MAC foundation (NC 35) for over 6 years now...first I started with Studio Stick (easy to carry it around but not enough coverage) and then I tried Studio Tech. Then last year I was recommended to use Studio Sculpt and it's become my HG since - great coverage and easy to blend.
Then the other week, as my MAC is running out, I decided to try Revlon Colorstay (#8) cos it's cheap and got decent reviews...It broke me out the next day. Now I'm just using the Revlon for my neck....and promise myself to never again stray.
(The only negative thing, for all MAC foundations I've used though, is that it doesn't last that too many hours...while the Revlon does stay like advertised.)

This is probably the second best foundation I've tried (after EL Double Wear, which is my HG). It provides medium to full buildable coverage but still feels really light and comfortable on the skin. It blends easily (fingers seem to work best) and I love the squeezy tube packaging, which helps prevent wastage.
The only real negative for me is that it's not particularly long-lasting (not on my combination skin, at least). Setting it with powder helps, but it will start to slide after about four hours; less in humid weather (even with powder).
