I bought this foundation recently and was really impressed with it! It gives me great medium to full flawless coverage (depending how much you use) but I suggest applying with fingers so it's not as thick. I have dry to quite dry skin and it doesn't dry out my face even with some powder. I love a dewy look and this is perfect for a night out because it looks amazing in pictures. I'm really happy with my purchase, and I love this foundation so much I only use it on special occasions, would definitely buy again.

My favourite foundation! It does provide good coverage, and I find looks quite natural when applied with the fingers. As it is thick as well this makes for quick and non-messy application, especially useful when traveling. Its consistency is too thick to be applied properly with a stippling brush, and using a normal foundation brush provides very full coverage. I live in a tropical area of Australia and even in the heat and humidity don't challenge it - no melting! A little goes a long way too, I've been using this daily for almost 2 years and am still only on my second tube. I have incredibly break-out prone skin as well, and have not had any problems while using this. Can't recommend highly enough!

This is a nice heavyduty foundation. Whenever my skins all flaky and peeling I like using this. It takes a while to dry, so always set with powder. Overall, good foundation.
Edit: transfers everywhere. Even if I touch my face with a finger, there's a huge amount of foundation that comes off. If someone kissed your cheek, their lips will match your face. Also, this foundation clogged my pores alot. Def gonna use this once in awhile, probably during winter months.
If you have oily or even normal skin, BEWARE.
This gives you oilies.

I hated this foundation, did nothing for me except slide around and just never settle on my skin..

I purchased this foundation in NC40.
I find with my last 2 MAC foundation, this and the Studio Fix Fluid, to get the best result for me, I had to apply it with a stippling brush and just stipple it on. Applying it that way gives me clear flawless complexion. When I used a foundation brush and apply it, it just looked really thick and cakey, and it looked even worst when you set it with a powder.
I find with the Studio Sculpt foundation despite what the MAC MUA says and the description of it on the MAC site, this foundation is definitely FULL COVERAGE, to me this foundation photographs exceptionally well especially with flash photography (OMG my face just looks soo fresh and flawless like I've got no makeup on)!
This foundation does take forever to dry soo you almost definitely have to set it with a powder. It does'nt creasesaround your lower cheeks when you smile, unlike some foundation that does that. it does'nt draw attention to your dry patches, pores or lumps and bumps etc. A little does go a long way with this foundation.
It is very durable, but at the moment it's winter here in Australia, I dont know how well it will hold up in the summer month though.
I dont like the smell of this foundation, it's bearable I guess.

I bought this foundation two mothers days ago when I took my mom out shopping and we both wanted an HD translucent setting powder and this mall did not have a sephora but we didn't mind so we headed to the mac counter to try out the mac prep+prime powder. While we were there I was checking out th foundations because I was running low on my studio fix powder and the studio sculpt caught my eye because I had heard many good things about this foundation so I had an MUA test it out on me and match my color and i fell in love. I'm an NC35 and I have really dry skin and this foundation definitely made my skin feel hydrated! Staying power not that great but I just set it with a translucent powder and it gives me a little longer of a wear. I love the fact that you only need the tiniest bit of this for your face so it lasts forever! I'm almost running out but I'm definitely going to buy myself another tube once I run out

I was very disappointed with this foundation. I heard so many good things about MAC products but this one let me down. I really dont have large pores but this foundation made them visible from a mile away! Applying it was kinda tricky as well I learned it looked better when you just use your fingers but since I have combination skin I had to set it with some mineral powder. I guess it does work for some people just not for me.

If i could I would give a 3.5, its an okay foundation. The coverage is great, and the color choices are amazing of course. It is kinda tricky to apply though. It didnt last as long as I wanted it to. I have combo-oily skin lately and I set it with my Estee Lauder Double Matte powder and I still had some oily spots, which I never have with my EL DW foundation.. so needless to say it wont be replacing my current foundation. But for women with dry skin or normal skin, I think it would work great.. especially for going out just a few hours.
UPDATE: Instead of applying with a sponge, i used my fingers.. looked a lot better. Alone it didnt work as great, but i mixed it with my EL DW and it gave me a dewy look yet i still had full coverage. I used this foundation as a concealer and it covered great.

I wanted to love this product, and I *did* love the initial finish and look of this foundation. The formula is super-concentrated, so it takes just a tiny bit to provide coverage. The shades were kind of off (why do NC30-42 look the exact same?!?) so I settled for NC25, which was ok, maybe slightly light but not noticable by most.Looked fab when applied with my SK Flat Top brush or Sigma SS 190, but unfortunately this product proved too much for my combo skin and became a greasy, oily mess after 3 hours or so, even when I used primer and set with powder. For dry/very dry skin, this maybe incredible, but anyone normal/combo/oily may wish to steer clear.

overall, this foundation gives me a nice coverage, buildable; but can get cakey, and it doesnt slip and slide all that much. the only downside i find to it is that it smells kind of like playdough... normally the smell wouldnt bother me but when my boyfriend notices it when hes close to my face... it has to be a turn off. Also, the gel based formula is a unique idea, but it leaves my face feeling sticky for up to 3 hrs after application. i spray the body shop vitamin E setting spray on it afterwards so the stickiness isnt as bad. i would definitely repurchase if my MUFE mat velvet + gets too expensive for me.
