this is a pretty good substitute when i dont wanna use my smashbox tinted moisturizer. i wish they had a shade darker than this but this shade works for me too. this is also a pretty good price, cant beat 7 dollars for a tinted moisturizer compared to 30-50 dollars for the higher end brands. i will definately buy a couple more for back ups to use when i wanna stretch my higher end ones.
This totally my HG of powders. I love this way more than my studio fix. i use it over my smashbox tinted moisturizer and my skin is flawless and no oily skin for just about the whole day. I never thought i would find anything to control my oily skin more than maybe a good two or three hours.i will continue to buy this and i will be getting a back up very soon!!!! GOOD JOB MAC!!

This works great for me. I wish it a just a tad bit more coverage but it still works great. i have very oily skin and it dosent add extra oil to my face. It actually isnt very moisturizing to me so i use just a dab of cetaphil moisturizing cream and then use sephora's anti shine and then apply the smashbox tm. After that i finish it with mac blot powder in deep dark and my skin is absolutely flawless!!!!! Usually within a couple hours i am a oily hot mess but i can go almost the whole day without having to touch up with with the blot powder. I am so glad i found the right combination of products that help with my oily skin, lets see how this works out in the summer heat.
i actually wasnt intrested in this but i was watching a youtube video of a girl going over her fav bronzers and this was one of them. it looked really pretty when she swatched it and she was a couple shadea darker than me, so i figured i should give it a try. and since i was returning moon beam i just swapped it out for this. i love it! it has a nice shimmer but too over whelming in my opinion. im also planning on trying out nars orgasm/laguna duo.
i was really looking forward to getting this but when i got home and played around with it, it did nothing for me. it did not work for my complexion at all. it just gave off this purplely tint. so back to the benefit counter it went. i might eventually give high beam a try to see if it will give off the effect i wanted, next im gonna get nars orgasm illuminator and see how that goes

I absolutely love this and the suntan matte. It gives a nice finish and is not to sparkly. It just gives my skin a beautiful glow. I probly won't need to buy this product again because I don't wear make up daily and this should last me a long time but if I lost it I would buy again
although i do like it, its not my favorite. i recently became a powder fan. the liquid to me is too matte and fake looking. the only way i do get the result i like with this is to spray my face with the fix + to make it look more natural and glowy. so far i dont have a problem with my skin becoming really oily and i have very oily skin. as long as i moisturize, use the prep and prime base and finish with fix + it works great. i have yet to actually wear it out for an entire day so i guess i will update when i get a chance to. foundation isnt something i wear everyday, i bought it to wear when going out when im not at work or school. but since ive purchased the fix powder i havent picked the liquid back up.
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!! i intially bought it because of the reviews about it setting your make up but im not completly sold on that. what i do love about it is how it takes away the powder and matte look of the studio fix fluid, the smell is amazingly awesome, very light. i have the same complaint as some about how it dosent spray evenly but i still love it and will buy again
this is my first time purchasing a blush. i was never intrested in blush but i thought this was very pretty. the mua told me this shade would compliment my skin tone (i am medium dark-skin). i actually do like it and i will definately be experimenting with more blushes from mac and other lines.
I absolutely love this product!!!!!! I purchased it this past Saturday. I also have the studio fix fluid, I like it but wasn't totally in love with it. To me it is too much of a matte look so I purchased the fix +and used it to set it and it looks much better. After watching many YouTube videos and reading reviews I decided to try the powder and I am in LOVE! It's not too matte on my skin at all. It gives me a natural flawless look. So I will defintely be buying again when I run out. ~*UPDATE*~ ok so i still LOVE my studio fix powder but i was feeling like the color was a little off, it was ok but i felt i needed a better color match. when i intially bought it the girl matched me to a nw43 so i went back and had another m.a match me and they used the c8 which worked BEAUTIFULLY!!!!! its more of a golden color and the nw43 seems more red. i am sooo glad i did go back and get a second opinion from someone more my shade because sorry to say it...the caucassian m.a was wayyyy off!
