Not a bad foundation, definitely better than the studio fix. I seem to have got a colour far too dark for my skin tone. It's not that amazing but I'd consider rebuying it in my own skin tone.

So I ordered and got this foundation and it totally was coming out nothing but oil. Totally separated. I called and they are sending me a new one! Sucks cause it was 30 some odd dollars

My holygrail! I've got acnescars and this foundations hides it all! I dont even need a concealer. I'm extremely impressed. It lasts all day. I have quite det skin and it doesnt make me look flaky, nor does it transfer - perhaps it would with oily or normal skin.

Got a generous sample of Sculpt which lasted about a week. I've heard girls RAVE about this product so I had to try it (clinique is usually my go to brand but wanted to try something new). So I'm not saying this product is bad and you won't like it or shouldn't try it. It's actually a really good product, but not for me. It really does leave you with that shiny, glowy, dewy almost wet look. it covers well, the color is good....but like another girl said, it just really never dried at all. i touched my face midway through the day and it was way too moist and wet. i thought i would like that wet look (that's honestly why i really wanted to try it) but just didn't like the feel in the end. also, i've been breaking out REALLY bad with painful pimples on my forehead this week and i NEVER get breakouts! i have also been trying african black soap as my face wash all week, so i can't really tell if it's MAC or the black soap causing the break outs.....

I tried this because many people with dry skin claim this is one of their favorites. But on me this foundation still left my face extremely flaky and ashy, no matter what technique I used to apply it. I was also told this would be medium to full coverage, but in my opinion it's very sheer. It also oxidizes to orange on me.

Absolutely hate this foundation! Looks fab when first applied but starts to separate throughout the day making my skin look patchy and oily however I have the driest skin ever! Would be good if you only need makeup to look good for an hour or so.

This is the best foundation I have tried from Mac, I have pretty much tried them all. If you like the mineralize liquid foundation but you want more coverage and more staying power with no transfer, then you will love this foundation.

I only tried this foundation out in the store. Fyi I have normal to dry skin with large pores. This foundation looked good on my pores but it was very sticky and never dried the entire time I was in the store. I kept it on one side of my face for at least 20 mins and it never dried. Obviously I did not purchase this foundation. I got the pro Longwear. Even though I do not have oily skin and it is for that skin type, I found that applying a moisturizer immediately before application makes it perfect!

I decided to give Studio sculpt a go as I’ve been thinking about buying it for so long – and it scores top against Estee Lauder Double Wear and Studio Fix which are my staples.When I went into the MAC store I asked the lovely girl who served me to help me decide between Studio Sculpt or Face and Body, as both were top scorers above my current foundation with Mac – Studio Fix.I tried the Face and Body on my skin and although it felt very nice to touch as its water based, it was a very light coverage (too light for me). The MAC Girl said that the best way to apply the face and body was by rubbing it in your hands, like a moisturiser and then applying it like a face cream. She said it was buildable but would still only end up with a light/medium coverage, and would take a lot of work to build up. She also said it’s not workable with a foundation brush – and I LOVE my brush, so a no go for me!Studio Sculpt Review:Packaging: 5/5 (loses a point for no pump, but gains one as it fits so nicely in my make-up bag and doesn’t leak out!)A long squirt tube – easy to store in my makeup bag, easy to squirt foundation out onto fingers or a brush. Nice. Personally I prefer the feel of a pump HOWEVER pumps always ‘pump themselves’ in my makeup bag and go everywhere so this has the benefit of a hard top screw lid!Colour Options: 5/5 – typical MAC range.Colours work on either NW for Warm skin tones or NC for cool skin tones, and then numbers depending on the depth of colour. I am normally around NC25. Application: 4/5 – I LOVE this to put on – but ONLY WITH A BRUSH – fingers are a NO NO!Glides on very smoothly and evenly with my Foundation brush. I used slightly less product than I would my Studio Fix and it literally went on like magic – everywhere my brush went my face became perfectly covered and smooth. A joy to apply. No ‘blending out’ required, and I used enough to get full coverage. Really nice to put on.Coverage: 5/5 – medium on first application, but not ‘fake’ looking.The coverage was good – medium on first application – slightly more than the Studio Fix, but not crazy heavy – I wore it to work today and didn’t look like I’d come in from a hard night out . You can still see normal skin tone underneath – so not too heavy. Blendable to HEAVY if you would like that coverage.Finish: 2/5 – gets super shiny!When you put it on it’s a lovely semi matt, semi dewy finish. It’s definitely not powdery at all, it’s slightly ‘satiny’, but not too shiny. HOWEVER within about an hour I am starting to notice an increase in the shine department. This shiny finish is manageable with a light powder, if you’re willing to keep it in check.Staying Power: ??? Tricky to rate – its stays put really well, but the finish changes over time and gets shiny - please ready below!Tricky one – when I had finish my working day, I usually reapply my Studio Fix on my chin and under eye area before going out to re-cover blemishes. This wasn’t required with the studio Sculpt as it really stood the test of time – the cover was as good as it was when I first applied it. The only thing is the shine – it’s really QUITE shiny, and the shine comes on pretty quickly. If you don’t mind reapplying a light powder a few times throughout the day (which after several applications didn’t make me cakey at all) then this is a great product – lovely coverage and works well for me. It IS shiny – so be warned (FYI I’m combination skin – and this is shiny everywhere, not just the oily bits!). FYI – I tried it with Product Compatibility: 4/5 – Works well with MAC products only.Works well with my MAC bronzer and brush, grabbed a little on the brush (like the process of applying bronzer might wipe away the foundation, but not noticeable!). Might be noticeable with heavier application. DIDN’T work well with any other product (Estee Lauder concealer under the eyes) as it makes other products almost ‘glow’ and stand out. Worked well with my MAC studio Fix/Mineralise concealers.Tool Compatibility: 5/5 with a brush. 0/5 with Fingers ?/5 Sponge (didn’t try it!)This works very well with my foundation brush. I didn’t use a sponge as I don’t tend to. When I tried to apply a little more for extra coverage around my eyes, it didn’t smooth out particularly well – it almost went ‘oily’ and glided around my skin rather than into it. A quick swipe of the brush worked a treat and took me back to perfect application.Price: £25Not bad for the amount that you get! No extras like pumps required.Overall: 4/5 – I will be buying this again. My main issue is the shiny finish – pretty annoying on my skin type. It MAY work really well on dry skin, as my ‘dry bits’ are not showing up at all and I’m not getting any patches which I usually do. I’d be tempted to give 3/5 due to the shine but the coverage and application, teamed with some powder to keep the shine in check, make this a winner

so far i really like it, i have oily acneprone skin , not a lot of redness but just scars and i have worn this foundation now twice (im nc20) im on vacation where its 40*g celsius , i have worn it for at least 8 hours anddddd...... NO OIL SEEPING THROUGH WHAT SO EVER!! i was in shock, especially because its made for dry skin . it was nourishing though and it had a beautiful glow untill i set it with powder , not a fancy powder so it didnt stay on because of that . i just maybelline fit me powder in 120 . it didnt look natural to be honest , but not caky either . it just had dat "make-upy" look, and i didnt apply a lot . but the coverage makes it OK. i think its medium to full coverage if you use a pea size amount all over your face but it builds up very nicely and very easily . It hasnt broken me out so far but i will update .lovin it!!
