I really enjoyed this foundation for the most part. I loved the coverage it gave me and I loved the fact you only need a small pea sized amount to do your whole face. The only thing that really let me down is that this made my acne come back with a vengeance. After reading up on it I realised that Shea butter is one of its ingredients and was clogging my pores as well as leaving me with an oil slick down the sides of my nose. This foundation will last you ages but I would highly recommend for normal/dry skins. I could only use this once a week without it breaking me out in order to use this up. This is one of MAC's better foundations but not its best.

I first purchased this product off the mac website as it explained it was part of the well defined range which was for more hd generation of make-up. It said it was'Long-wearing, water-resistant.' which is what i was looking for in a foundation.
So when i recieved it i had to try it immediately because i was so excited. I applied only a pea size amount onto the whole of my face as most people recommended this was all you needed.It blended really well and gave a perfect high coverage, I was so pleased with it.But as the day went on it started to go oily within 1-2 hours and i had to blot my face several times. I noticed that it transfered and rubbed off quite easily even though it was supposed to be a water resistant long wearing foundation.So id say the coverage and blendability is really good but the resistancy and texture makes it better for more Normal - Dry skins
But overall it is a good foundation but i think not for my skin type.

I use this foundation for late fall/winter use. I like the way it covers either using a damp sponge for light to med coverage, or with a foundation brush for full coverage. I do find that it's important to use a very good moisturizer with this product as it does tend to get flaky around nose and chin area - especially where people are using electric heat.

this is an okay product.
it does make me break out in little bumps or even whiteheads sometimes, and also it doesn't cover my imperfections by itself, but with a concealor it does, and this foundation matches my skin color SO WELL that i'll continue to use it until i find a better foundation that matches my skin while not clogging my pores.

Tried this on a whim .......... TOO OILY, CAKEY, AND IT MADE MY FACE STICKY!

I give this a generous 4 lippies, but I'm going to say that I won't be repurchasing. I do think that this is a very unique gel-based foundation that offers full coverage, comes in a wide array of skin-matching shades, and is housed in a convenient squeezable tube. I was really excited about this product when I first bought it and I really loved how it completely covered my imperfections. But the bad seems to outweigh the good. The formula may be gel-based, but it also feels thick and heavy on the skin. After application, I can touch my hand to my face and still feel the slight stickiness of the layer of makeup that's just sitting there. It will also show up as an unnatural mask if you don't blend it well enough. I like to apply my liquid foundations with my fingers if I'm in a hurry, but I cannot do this with the Studio Sculpt because it will look so streaky! I always have to take my time with a foundation brush, or better yet, a good-quality wedge sponge. But even with that, it tends to cake around any dry patches (I have dry skin) and emphasize the slightest of wrinkles. I do think that the Studio Sculpt is a good foundation, but it's not for me. I would recommend it for those who already have smooth skin, but are mainly looking for quality coverage. This product will definitely cover up things like freckles, sun spots, uneven skin tone, but it does not look good if you have rough patches and wrinkles. I don't know how well this works with oily and acne-prone skin, but I'm going to predict that this stuff would just slide right off oily skin and cake up around breakouts (and maybe even trigger more due to its heaviness).
NOTE: I am a NC30 in the Select SPF 15 and the Studio Fix Fluid, but I had to purchase this in NC25 because the shades run a little darker.

Reading previous reviews, i would say this foundation is probably only good for drier skins. I personally love this product, but i have dry skin...other users that dont have dry skin have said it makes them break-out and is very oily...but this foundation is specifically for drier skins as when i asked at the counter which one i should use she suggested this one because its quite moisturising! She also said that i should stay away from studio fix because its very matte and tends to stick to dry areas (if you have any) so i would definately recommend studio sculpt if you have dry skin like me!
I normally use YSL's perfect touch foundation, ive tried many other foundations in between and always gone back to ysl (read my other reviews :) ) but again i was gettin abit tired of using the same one, and i felt that ysl didnt last on my skin that well sometimes, especially if it was hot outside or i was on a night out clubbing! so anyway i decided to try mac because i'd heard their foundations are quite thick, have really good coverage and generall dont wear off easily. This foundation is also £10 cheaper than my usual foundation which i was pleased about!
Studio sculpt gives really good coverage, i have quite red skin sometimes and it covered it up amazingly. It was really easy to blend in, the consitency was nice and creamy so was easy to build up coverage as well. It is quite thick, but thats what i like...from previous reviews i can see others dont..but i wouldnt say it felt like i was wearing a mask!
The overall finish looked really good and the colour match was perfect! and because it was so easy to blend i didnt get any patches around my jaw line!
The packaging is pretty good, abit plain but very easy to control the amount of foundation you want to get out, so no wasting any!
So far i'm not sure how well it lasts compared to YSL, I've only been using it a week so i'll have to let you know! i think its slightly better at lasting than YSL or atleast i feel like it is because its so nice and thick! Although i would say YSL gives a nicer radiant finish than studio sculpt...(YSL makes your face look really radiant and luminous when first applied, but as i said this does tend to wear off after a couple of hours, leaving you with a less flawless finish) but because it's £10 cheaper this doesnt bother me, i will probably continue buying studio sculpt from now on!
Using this foundation has given encouraged me to try MACs other products because when i'd tried some of their other products such as lipglosses & lipsticks i hadn't really seen what the hype was all about...but now i do!

I don't know why I bought this product. The mua at the MAC counter tried it on a part of my cheek and chin with a stippling brush. The finish looked and felt pretty Natural/Soft in artificial light. I was in need of a foundation and still hadn't found my (used studiofixfluid before) match so i decided to buy. Once using the product in natural light I saw the thick and heavy consistency and it start feeling very thick and heavy on my skin. I have combination skin and my skin tends to get very oily at the end of the day. Well I applied this foundation in the morning and directly after 4 hours my face was so oily and the foundation was starting to come off. I felt so ashamed because I bought this thinking it will give me a good coverage and will stay on all day. I tried using blot paper, blot powder(MAC) but Nothing helped, everytime I had to put on some more, because half of my foundation was gone. It didnt even gave my skin a natural looking finish it just was a thick consistency layered on my skin. It also broke me out alot and accentuated my pores and dry flakes on my skin.
From the mac Foundations this is the worst one I've ever tried!

Studio Sculpt has a gel like texture and a little goes a long way with this foundation. I have stopped using this product because it was causing me to breakout. I find that for my skin this is just too heavy and coats my skin too deeply. It is very rich and sinks into my skin, if I apply too much I get a cloaked mask like feel. A tiny bit is enough for your whole face. I will use this as an eye concealer. Since I quit using this my breakouts cleared up considerably. I have switched to LM tinted moisturizer I have no breakout probs with it.
