If you apply this with a powder brush that's not too dense, you can achieve a nice coverage that's fairly natural. However, if you don't have much to conceal, I would recommend the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural because it gives a more natural look (mattifies but still leaves the skin with some "healthy luminosity"). I think Studio Fix Powder can look very cakey if applied with a heavy hand (a kabuki brush or the included sponge. If you use it to retouch during the day, it can move the product around so it bunches up, catch on dry flakes, and look very cake face. For reference, I have oily skin, but I find it works the same on my best friend with normal-to-dry skin. I don't find Studio Fix Powder to be as creamy or bendable as pressed powder foundations from brands like Urban Decay (Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation), Laura Mercier (Smooth Finish Foundation Powder), or Chanel (Double Perfection Lumière). I also find that I have to be careful with my color match (it is different from my match in MAC liquid foundations) because Studio Fix Powder oxidizes quite badly - and not just darkens but gets more orange - this also happens with my best friend who is light while I am medium. Hope this helps.
