My everyday foundation! I have freckles and uneven skin tone and this foundation covers it all beautifully! People are always amazed at how photogenic I am, but in all honesty it’s this foundation! I have been wearing it for 10 years now! I’m getting older and my skin is getting more dry (from years of neglecting skin care) I refuse to try messy liquids so I’ve added a collagen moisturizer underneath my foundation and it gives such amazing coverage that lasts all day/night. This foundation can be applied so many different ways to give the coverage you are looking for. The sponge is great and I’ve used it a lot. However, lately I’ve gone to using the real techniques buffing brush (spray it with some filtered water to dampen and brush/pat it on) and it gives such an airbrushed effect it’s amazing. Another huge plus to wearing this as my foundation has been the generous recycle program where I take in my empty containers and get a free lipstick or eyeshadow! The eyeshadows last me years and my lipstick always runs out by the time it’s time to recycle so it saves me tons of money :) There has been a few times in the last 10 years I’ve looked for less expensive or just alternatives in general and I have never found anything like it. I switched from the Chanel ultra wear flawless foundation and have tried everything from Estée Lauder, Laura Mercier, Lancôme you name it, nothing gives me the airbrushed looked like MAC Studio Fix!!

Being that my skin is so dry, I often avoid powder foundations because many just accentuate my dryness. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is definitely my holy grail foundation for touching up and adding extra coverage! It applies over all of my different makeup, super well and it does not feel heavy. Many people stray away from Mac products because word of mouth usually says that it’s “cakey” or “heavy” or “too yellow for my skin”, but at Mac they actually have a wide shade range and I am more on the neutral side of the makeup spectrum, but I have the perfect shade which is N25! It has no flashback, and having more sensitive skin, it has not made me breakout either!

One of my holy grail products thats iv been using since i was a teen and no matter what i try youll always see this in my makeup bag... its a medium to full coverage powder and if u wet it, it becomes a foundation.. gives u the perfect matte flawless finish. The only bad thing about it is that sometimes after wearing it for long periods of times it can give u clogged pores.. but besides that i love it sometimes i wear it alone and gives me medium perfect coverage and sometimes i wear on top of my foundation for full coverage.. the one thing that i really hate is some parts on compact gets hard and u have to scrape the stuff off in order to use it cause alot of times i had to throw it away cause it was too hard and like i said unless u scape it and make it into loose powder u wont be able to use it.. other then that i love it the pro is more then the cons

My skin tends to be a bit oiler in the middle of summer.
So, I prefer to use powder instead of creams so I won't feel like I'm wearing a mask.
I was intrigued when I read that that was oil controlling, and minimized pores.
I used a dense buffing brush that gave a medium coverage, that could be built to full coverage.
I wore it on a 8 hour shift under hot lights with my tunic uniform.
Half way though my shift, everything still looks great! Although, it did accentuate a bit on my smile lines.
It didn't oxidize either, which is great!
Closer to the end of my shift, I did realize that I have a bit of oil coming through on my t zone, but a blotter sheet helped without moving the foundation.
At the end of the day, my makeup still looked great!
I've found my foundation that I know will not melt off my face during the summer heat!

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder is my favorite face makeup. Not only is it a quality product, it is long-lasting and doesn’t need to be reapplied 20 times a day like some of the drugstore brands. I love that I can combine my MAC products or layer them to achieve different looks whether I’m aiming for a daytime natural look or an evening smoky eye. The price you pay for this high end cosmetic is definitely worth it and is the only powder I use! It can be purchased directly from a MAC Cosmetics Pro Store nationwide, maccosmetics.com, and department stores like Macy’s & Nordstrom. It’s my #GiftCrush for sure!

I bought the Studio M.A.C Fix foundation in color Nc40 at Northpark mall. This powder foundation even out my skin tone and it is easy to apply. You can build it up as you go and leaves a nice finish.

Finally they have my Shade!!! I had given up on Mac Foundations and Powders for a long time because I found I was always in between in shades and never matched unless the products were mixed. I have always loved their highlighters, bronzers, eye shadows, blushes and lip stuff, but their foundations and powders were always either too red, or yellow enough but but not dark enough. Well I guess about 6 months ago they finally came out with a NC41. At the end of summer I can wear NC42 which I have but don't use frequently and I don't always get that much color each summer.
Nc41 looks fantastic even in broad day light pictures and I now can say I see why this is such a staple in people's make up collection. I don't wear this wet so I can't speak to applying it that way, I simply brush it on w/a brush. I may or may not wear a tinted moisturizer or simply conceal my flaws with my Bobbi Brown Stick foundation in Shade 4.0 around my mouth and nose area and then just brush this on and I am good to go. Some other Dual Powder foundations I really like include Bobbi Brown Powder foundation in 4.0, Cover Fx Mineral Dual Powder in G40+ and Lancome powder foundation in shade Wheat II

Most all of my makeup consist of MAC products. I absolutely love this brand. I use NC25 Studio Fix Powder that has the foundation as well. The coverage is great, it doesn't clump, and I don't have to constantly re-apply to cover up oily areas around my face. It lasts through the day and holds up come night fall. I always recommend MAC products to people who ask what I use. When I do wedding, prom, or homecoming makeup for people I use my samples and other products from MAC that I have because I know it will last through their events.

So for beginners, my girl Shelby fixed me up. I bought my first Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation today and I am absolutely in love with it. My tone color is NW46 with a little bit of cheeks, feel so grand lipgloss (matte), and to set my face topped it off with a fix plus mist.
