”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.

A classic favorite!

You can never go wrong with this powder! I'm in the shade NC 25. Pros include being lightweight, comfortable, soft on the skin, medium to full coverage, great staying power even during hot days, separate compartment for the sponge applicator. Cons include price point is quite on the higher side.

My one and only!

This has been my face powder for years! MAC was the first ever foundation I bought when I started wearing makeup 6 years ago. I have combination- acne prone skin and my dermatologist discouraged me from wearing any makeup until I started using MAC. This does not break me out and this is the only brand that has my correct shade. Im NC40 most of the year and NC42 during summer. I use this powder on top of the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation.

My go-to!

No matter how many powder or foundation I use, nothing compares to the MAC Studio Fix. I am shade NC20, its always available unlike the NC30 that my sister uses. I can even use this without light. Whenever I feel a little oily or I need a quick touch up, I grab this one. I know the coverage, I know how to use it and it's like a comfort blanket. I have been using this for years. Not my everyday, but it's good to have a back up powder when all else fails. I am so flawless with this. Covers all the imperfections! Make sure to bronze up a little right after so you won't look flat.

You can never go wrong with Studio Fix

This is the perfect powder for matte finish, full beat lovers. It's brilliant for baking, but also excellent for regular setting. It stays PUT all day, and is perfect for special events. It has a ton of coverage, so if you want to look fresh, go a little light handed with this, else it might cake a bit. All in all, you can't ever go wrong by reaching for this compact.

My mom's BFF.... <3

This is my mom's holy grail powder foundation ever! She is a bit morena and uses NC30. What she likes and loves about the product is how well it can keep her face from oiling up all throughout the day! It also gives her that matte finish she wants, and the coverage she needs. Since I'm still a student, the downside I can point out is that it's too pricey heheh. My go-to powders are still Maybelline and Innisfree, but when I become an official tita sooner or later, maybe I'd like to try this one as well heheh

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.
