Mac Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation is a product that will always be special to me because i created a huge scene in the MAC store to get it . The MUA had forced NC 44 on to me which was way to dark, and then refused to exchange it. Not one to be outdone, i stood there saying i wasnt going to leave till she did something about it and the senior makeup artist very promptly agreed to change it! Then i became the proud owner of MAC NC 42 Studio Fix Foundation. I feel i have an identity now- Hello, Im Priyam and im an NC 42 !
Mac Studio Fix Powder plus foundation is a multi purpose product which is great for oily skinned girls like me. The powder mattifies the skin and has great coverage, so your skin looks more even and smooth. The finish , even though its matte is not cakey…and you end up with a very natural looking result inspite of the heavy coverage . One of the best things about this, is that it lasts the entire day on me. I mean, i can go sweat it out in the sun, and come back home after ten hours and it would still be on my face – so if you are looking for base options for a wedding, this is a really good option.
If you are a fan of the dewy finish, you can always use highlighter on top of this for that, but this alone is not a ‘dewy’ finish product. For a person like me, who is always battling with oily skin and who breaks out with every second thing that touches my face (I pity my future husband), this is a life saver. It gives me that extra coverage to hide my acne and still does not cause further break outs. I dont know whether i would recommend wearing this every single day, because it is heavy on the skin and i like to let my skin breathe…but for special occasions i dont look past my Mac Studio Fix! Its one of thoese foundations tht looks great on camera too!
For those of you who dont want the powder version, Studio Fix also comes in a liquid version as well as a cream version. Those version are probably better suited to those with dry skins like my sister, but for me i find this suits me the most!
