I was SO excited to try this product because I thought it was going to give me a flawless airbrushed look on top of my studio fix liquid foundation. But it just looked cakey. That being said, it DOES give a lot of coverage by itself. Because I didn't want to waste it and just waited too long to feel good about returning it, I tried using it alone over concealer and it looks good! It's not a "going out" or special event flawless look, but it's good coverage if you are looking for just a powder foundation. I just would not recommend using this over a liquid foundation.

Girl me and this powder are about to scrap. If you don't have your exact shade, it doesn't blend into the skin it looks like just straight pigment and everyone will know u got the wrong shade, it also doesn't control oil and is cakey. oh and its expensive, girl bye. OH AND IT OXIDIZES. trash

I prefer powder than liquid foundation. After years of searching for the best foundation for my skin, i finally found this HG. Its medium to full coverage, able to hide my large pores and blemishes. But its looks and feels heavy on my skin after 5-6 hours.

I really wanted to like this product, given that the Studio Fix line is great, but I don't get this powder. It doesn't provide decent coverage, it looks fake on the skin, dries to an almost mousse finish, and it looks super cakey. Total fail for me, not even good to use as a face powder as it is so thick.

I have high hopes for this product because it's expensive and it's MAC. It doesn't control oil very well and it cakes on my face even though I only put little using a brush. It doesn't have SPF so you need some sunscreen under it. The packaging seems a bit flimsy for me. It's just the typical MAC compact and I hope they will upgrade it with a less bulky compact. It only provides medium coverage and you need to build it up so thickly if you want a really full coverage which is bad because it will cake! I still prefer my Burberry one compared to this one. There are a lot of drugstore dupes for this that won't break your bank and your heart when you already hit pan to it because they're so much more affordable. If you want to try it go on but I still recommend a lot of affordable drugstore products.

I like this product. The NC15 matches me perfectly. Use it for light coverage over liquid foundation, it’s not bad, however there are better & cheaper options out there for the price. The packaging is so chic, very compact & user friendly. Only thing I wish it that it was refillable. (Reduce costs & eco friendly). I like everything about this product except that it’s not refillable and the excessively high price tag.

Like this powder. I can even use it alone or on top of foundation. Controls oil. And has a nice finish.

I have been using this since the beginning of time and feel confident every time I repurchase. I use this as a trusty touch up, if I'm Im going out after work, my daytime foundation has faded, I simply pat this powder over, and it gives good coverage to any blemishes that are on show after the morning fade. It's important to not go overboard as it can look cakey, but the coverage is great. I have NC 35, NC41 and NC 42 depending on my tan levels. If you'd like a flawless finish to your makeup, and if your liquid foundation does not cover some blemishes, you can use a light hand to dust this on top to add to the coverage. One of my staple handbag items and it does last forever.

This powder foundation is meh for me. Have had a couple of these since my late 20's and this product never seems to out-perform other similar products. I recently repurchased this product in a different shade C3 (usually am NC20ish) as the SA had matched me. I always seem to get matched fairly lighter than I like. The thing about this product is that it's known to oxidize (not greatly but notably). I think this may be true w/ oily complexions...but with my normal leaning dry complexion I have never experienced this. As for the formulation, it's long lasting, has great coverage - full medium at best, matte finish, light in texture but can cling to dry patches and exaggerate fine lines. I just feel it doesn't hold up to my skin in many ways. Even when I was younger I felt it left a powdery almost caked on look. In hindsight, I would have stuck to my original intentions of purchasing the MAC Matchmaster Cushion Foundation, unfortunately it has been discontinued...Update: Dec 28, 2017 After my original review, I was going to wait for the launch of the new product, Studio Waterweight powder foundation. But I decided to give Studiofix one last try,. I returned the C3. Lucky me, I had a b!tchy SA lol, a no-nonsense type which made me want to rethink my return pffft. Long story short, she asked me what my needs in a foundation were and said that Studio Fix is the right product for me. She proceeded to match me, and said that N5 would be my closest match (stating that C3 was a poor match being too yellow for my skin tone - which I totally agreed). To this day I am happily pleased with the match. I use my trusty MAC #170 brush (I know it’s meant for liquid/cream foundations but I find it does the trick for this) and gently blend into my skin and it looks great -> photo ready great. I learned not to apply a second layer which gives a caked-on appearance, although it still shows off fine lines it was diminished with a spritz of Studio Fix+. I can honestly say I have been enjoying this powder foundation now more than I ever did... I have been wearing it daily since I’ve purchased it! I just wish MAC would look into a transfer-proof formulation in powdered foundations..Changing this from 2 lippies to 4!...
