”I’ve used this for years and tried to find something that could beat the quality of this product, and few other powder products ever came close. I hate liquid foundation because I work out and sweat a lot, but this stays on my face all day and it feels like I’m wearing nothing. It really does control the oil on my face and the color options are amazing. I’m a redhead and have very fair pink toned skin and this is also the only foundation color that matches my skin perfectly. Coverage is also awesome.”

”This foundation powder has a beautiful finish and excellent coverage. It builds very well. It can built to full coverage while looking natural. I have dry skin and I get a satin finish with this by spraying a setting spray on top after application. It is long lasting and has a great shade range.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

MAC began in Toronto, Canada when makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo decided to come up with cosmetics that photographed well. They started creating their concoctions from their kitchen and sold them to other professional artists, models, and photographers. Their word-of-mouth popularity grew and the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store manned by makeup artists. MAC sold in black pots and came in a wide range of shades that established the brand as the ultimate color authority. Today, MAC is a leading professional makeup authority, and have even featured collaborations with Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Brooke Shields.

I keep going back to this after trying other foundations. It looks very natural and doesn't oxidize. I apply it with a sponge in a dabbing motion. Buffing it in with a powder brush doesn't work for me and just wastes product. I would say this has medium coverage that's buildable. Also, I like using a blotting powder to touch up instead of piling on more of this—that's when it gets cakey.

Love it

I love mac products. Can't go wrong with mac. Sometimes when I'm running late I don't have the time to prime and put on foundation and the likes. So this is what I use. It covers really well! The effect is not to on cakey but just enough to absorb the oil. It's a great base for that no makeup look.

This stuff makes you look absolutely flawless. It's perfect for everyday wear and it's basically all you need. With the humidity here in the ph, i prefer using powder foundations compared to liquid since it can move around your face or it'll feel too heavy on your skin since it's just so hot.

My daily dose of studio fix!

Ever since I tried MAC Studio Fix I knew it was the one I need for the rest of my life. It’s become my life that I couldn’t get out of the house without putting on my studio fix, it has become an essential part of my life, I actually couldn’t live without it anymore. It’s very light, but has full coverage. I rarely put on any foundation on my face as the studio fix is just enough to complete my everyday look. I’ve been an NC35 user for four years now and I don’t think I’ll ever be switching to another brand.

Worth the risk and price. Amazing results 😍

I've mentioned on my previous review (maybelline bb stick) that I'm allergic to powder make-ups, so it was a big, big challenge and risk to try Mac studio fix foundation. Actually it was my sister whom i knew who used this product, ever since forever, and I saw good results on her face. I'm kinda inspired with her but it took me years to finally bought one for myself because let's admit, it's kind of expensive and it would be a waste to not finish the whole product if i'm allergic. So, I got mine in NC30, which really matches my complexion, and since the first day I used it, I have no more doubt and issues with this product. It blends well, giving me a "no make up look". I retouch it very seldom since it is Matte Finish, which is a big thumbs up for my skin type. It's also thrifty to use so probably it can last a lifetime.😁 Mac never ever fails me.
