This is what I come back to over and over- for well over a decade. It's fast, gives good coverage (apply with a LIGHT hand, it's very easy to accidentally overdue it and it will look cakey then), and it wears well. It's fairly long lasting but more importantly, it wears off evenly, I don't see my face getting patchy looking it just gradually will be mostly gone after a long day. And it's never bothered my skin, unlike many foundations. I buy two shades a year usually - it lasts ages but it's nice to have a paler version during the winter and warmer for summer. I do recommend trying a few shades, some of the artists can pick a color perfectly at a glance, others are way off so try on and check the color after an hour or two (it gets a little deeper and warmer after it settles)

I have NC40 normal skin, no acne/breakouts. I use this powder over my Lancome Hydra Zen moisturiser and my Kiehls sunscreen and it looks flawless. It stays on the whole day with only one application in the morning, or I occasionally reapply once in the afternoon if it gets a little humid outside. I love how this product gets rid of the shine on my face after I apply my skincare products! It makes my skin look healthy and glowy without making it look flat and super matte. I've tried many powder foundations but I always come back to this product. Definitely my HG for 6 years now!

I have a love/hate relationship with this product.Pros:super convenientprovides great coveragedoesn't look cakey Cons:my skin produces oil extremely quickly when wearing this powderdisappears into my skin (even with a primer)I have to reapply SEVERAL times a day to try to combat the oily/disappearing issue... And although I enjoy how quickly I can get my makeup done in the morning, I don't think it's worth it. Especially for the price!

I'm about to buy my third one. This is definitely my Holy grail foundation! I hate liquid foundations, and I really love the coverage the studio fix gives you. The price is also great in my opinion, as it usually takes me a year to even hit pan, and thats with applying full face makeup 2-3 times a week. I Just wish MAC would stop testing on animals, and then it would be even better.

Unfortunately this broke me out. Whenever I use this on my entire face alone or with a primer I break out when this mixes with my natural oils. It could be an irritating ingredient in it. The powder it self is great, medium coverage, finely milled and I think works well for oily skin. I now use this under my eyes which are dry, which is weird. But is still a bit heavy for them.Unfortunately cannot repurchase.

Ok, I bought this product about 13 or so years ago and I remember liking it but for whatever reason, I just never bought it again. Well cut to many years later, to me being in my mid 30's and being the I don't-need-expensive-makeup-girl for most of those years, I decided to give it a chance again. Boy am I glad I did. Let's start with my nose, oh my nose, the bane of my face. I could not find a single foundation that would go on it smoothly and if it did, it was off in 2.5 seconds. Don't ask me why (oiliness in that area, I suppose), this is just what happened to my nose, it happened in the rest of my T-zone too, but not as bad as my nose. And this foundation has been an absolute godsend for my nose. With a primer, my nose and T-zone look as smooth as a babies skin. It's perfection. For being in my mid 30's, I have pretty decent skin still and no wrinkles or sun damage to speak of yet, the only thing I get is occasional breakouts, so for me, the coverage is perfect, even without a concealer. So I am now a more expensive makeup convert, my face just looks more... Fresh and elevated. Plus this isn't THAT expensive, I mean considering how expensive makeup can get these days. Or maybe I'm just trying to rationalize my new found vice.😜 Either way, I can't recommend this enough! Oh and NC20, for reference.

Pros: good in oil control, enough coverage, doesnt look cakey on me, and lasts so well. the only thing i dont like about this is it transfers a lot. but maybe because its a powder. but overall, this is a must have for me.

I've always been a fan of their powders. They work great on my combination skin and what i truly love from MAC is how great this matches my skin. I use NC40 or NC42. It is always so hard to find any types of foundation that match me perfectly.

One of the classic powders in my opinion. I always keep it handy for more humid, more oily days when I require more coverage. And coverage it does deliver! Its super mattifying and makes my skin look photoshop like, doesnt feel too dry despite being more on the dry side.The only down side is that if applied generous amount it can cause camera flashback. Otherwise lovely for those more on the oily side looking for fuller coverage out of their products.

i recently hit pan on this so i thought i should review it.it does make your skin look flawless; it sets your foundation with an extra layer of coverage. it is a really nice powder and there are sooo many colours available which i do love about MAC. it lasted me almost a whole year with daily use which i love!however! i have very oily skin and i forgot to use this powder once and although i did look a bit flat my makeup lasted so much longer without using it. the girl at mecca said that this could be due to over using matte products which suck out the moisture and your skin produces more oil to compensate.it's a nice product but not quite HG status for me and i probably won't buy it again, but still 4 stars :)
