Hey guys !
Today im going to give you a quick review of MAC’s studio fix powder plus foundation so lets start off with what MAC claims this foundation is/does:
“A one step application of foundation and powder. Gives skin a smooth, flawless, all matte, full coverage finish. Long wearing : lasts for up to 8 hours. The choice of Pro’s.”
I purchased this compact on the M.A.C website for $49AU. I was abit hesitant to buy this as i only use powders over liquid foundation for extra coverage and wasnt too hyped about the price for what it is, but i caved in and baught it.
So it is a powder foundation that can be used wet or dry which is pretty cool & convient for people looking to do a lighter day coverage & a heavy night coverage on the go. I have never used mine wet but all you have to do is take a spray bottle of water (or any kind of face mist) lightly spray your foundation brush, pat the brush into the product and then buff the powder into your skin with the brush. Doing it this way will give you a heavier more full coverage and you can build up the coverage by doing a few extra layers.
I picked up the colour NC20 which matched perfectly to my skin colour (good guess!)
In my opinion this foundation gave me a medium coverage – not quite full coverage and it left my skin feeling silky smooth with a nice flawless finish. It defentely helped keep my very oily skin under control for a longer period of time then my normal powder foundation does (loreal true match).
I didnt find it to be cakey on my face which is always good for a powder and it didnt stick to dry patches on my face. It does make my skin break out like crazy every single time i use it though. I tend not too reach for it for that reason.
Overall i am satisfied with this foundation. I think i expected alot more with all the hype around this product but it wasnt too bad ! If your just starting out in make up i dont think this product is a must have item in your collection.
– Kept my skin matte for longer
– Can use wet or dry
– non cakey on face
– Price ( for what it is i think you can find better for half the price!)
– breaks my skin out every single time i use it
– medium coverage not full coverage
I hope this review helped you guys decide if you want this product or not, leave a comment telling me what you thought of this foundation if you’ve used it! (:
