I really enjoyed this formula! I wear the color NC10, and found the color to be a pretty good match for my fair neutral skin tone. If you have more neutral skin tone I would stay away from NW10, because it looks more peachy and unnatural. I found the coverage to be good and buildable, with a more natural satin look on my skin. As long as I used a brush to blend it in properly, I didn't find that it got cakey like some other people said. My only negative is that when I build up the coverage I do find that it can transfer quite a bit, so I find that I need to prep it well with the right primers and set it well with the right powders and setting sprays, so it can be a little more high maintenance than some of my other foundations. However, I really like the look it gives to my skin, so for days I want a beautiful higher coverage look, this is definitely a go-to product!

This is a pretty decent foundation but the only reason that I rated it four stars is because it was so hard to find my perfect shade. I actually found that the shade shown in the photo is a bit too dark for me, but the next shade lighter is a little too light. So I do end up mixing a concealer of a lighter shade in with this foundation to get the correct match for my skin tone. Although I have to do that, this has a great finish and is awesome for taking high quality, well lit photos. I love how it blends into to my skin and doesn’t crease throughout the day. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a new photo friendly foundation and hasn’t tried this one yet.

Really great foundation if you use a hydrating primer (NOT PORE FILLING, it emphasizes pores like crazy) and sat on my nose and t zone REALLY well. This foundation is definitely medium coverage but buildable to full, which I love because I can build up the foundation on places that need to be built up. 3 reasons why I love this foundation: 1. Shade Range YESSSSSS!!!!!! 2. Matte foundation to control my oily t zone and 3. It's a great price. Now I know,"$30 dollars is super expensive!?!?!" But compare it to the Too faced Born this way or the Estee Lauder Double Wear. Also you get a lot of product for a great price! Overall, I loveee this foundation and I happy that I was able to find my perfect shade!

Wow wow wow, I always thought Mac was over hyped before I gave it a try. Recently I ordered the studio fix from Nordstrom because it was 25% off so I thought I’d try it, plus it has an spf 15 which can’t hurt, especially since its summer. I’m more into a natural look, so I only use one pump for my whole face, but when I tell you it blends it so smooth it looks like my skin! I may like this better than my fenty but don’t tell anyone. They all honestly look so good but I’ve been wearing my Mac lately, plus it’s super affordable!

Studio Fix Fluid was one of my first foundations ever. Once I found my correct shade I wore it all the time, I only strayed away because I started getting curious about other brands. It really is a great foundation, has more shades than most brands, and is consistent. It’s the same now as it was when I first got into makeup and that’s always a good thing. My only cons are that it can get heavy feeling if you’re not careful and I experiencing a little transferring with it. Overall, great foundation!

I have used Mac studio fix liquid foundation for a long time there are some things I really like and something’s I dont. The thing I love about this foundation is it’s full coverage, it covers up all the things I want to hide that being said it does feel a little heavy especially in the summer I feel like its way to heavy. I do like to wear it at night when I’m going out. Defiantly not an everyday foundation for me!

Let me start with the bad so I can go on and on about the good. It’s a heavy foundation that is full coverage and it personally has made me breakout. Other than that it covers all your concerns and you can look like a professional makeup artist with this stuff. I would personally only use it for big events and not for daily use if you have hormonal cystic acne and are prone to acne when foundation is too heavy.

I got my makeup done at Mac for prom, and they used this on my skin. It did a great job at making me look dewy, glowy, and fresh, which was what I wanted in my makeup look. I loved the evenness of the consistency on my face which is super dry and sometimes makes foundation look patchy. Would really recommend to people, although I don’t think it stacks up super highly against other foundations of similar prices.

Ahhh this pains me to write such a low rating review especially with how much of an avid Mac user I am. But this foundation is garbage! For starters it literally smells like paint! It's extremely heavy feeling on the skin and it broke me out like a pizza!! I Would not recommend this to anyone especially if you have sensitive or acne prone skin.
