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!

I purchased this one in Milford Ct. Macy I have to say I liked it in the store I am not so crazy now The packaging is not gray not pump just a glass bottle so is hard if you don’t have a small brush to stick through the neck of the bottle If you try to tilt the bottle on your hand it will come to much. Any way. The foundation is full covering but is very thick so is good for television or photography not for real life unless you dilute the thing a little bit and you use vey very little with only s beauty blender dampened

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!

When I want full coverage and want my skin to look perfect and airbrushed this foundation is my go to. It honestly matches my skin tone perfectly, there is a perfect match for every skin tone. It is a buildable matte foundation that give my skin the appearance of flawless and airbrushed. It also “filters/blurs” my fine lines and skin imperfections and keeps my oily skin at bay. This is one of my favorite go to foundations and I highly recommend it for my oily girls who love that airbrushed look!

My holy grail foundation. Not too heavy and doesn’t settle into my lines or anything. It doesn’t cake up and stays on for most of the day. The color is a perfect match during my winter months and there’s no flashbacks via camera flash. I use this foundation everyday and it’s best blended out with a beauty blender! It does slip and slide if not set with a powder and it does transfer but other than that I love this 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!

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.
Q & A
Is any good for combination/ oily skin? Would really like too try this.
Does this have a matte finish? And does it leave a cakey appearance?
How long would this last on my face for an everyday look?
Does this foundation work well for combination skin? Do have shades for darker skin woman?
