This stuff is seriously so good. It’s quick to apply and looks flawless. Like all powders, it does need a setting spray like Fix+ for it to look good right away, but that is to be expected. My skin gets pretty oily and this powder really holds up! I like that it can be anywhere from a light to a full coverage depending on the amount used and the application method. My favorite way is to use a big dense brush.

I love this foundation! I have been a big fan of MAC cosmetics since I first began using this back in high school. It goes great with my combination skin, and lasts all day long. I don’t have s problem with it wiping off overtime. I got mine from the MAC store in South Park mall in Charlotte, NC. Highly recommend it if you’re not a heavy makeup person but love to look pretty naturally!

Review for: MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation NW50 15g / 0.52oz more...
I liked the product and might repurchase it but it was a little too dry and chalky. It looks heavy on the face too. It is very smooth to the touch but chalky, I think when you pack it on the face lightly, just to set the liquid foundation, it looks good. It exaggerates fine lines too. Price point is fair for the amount of product you get. I usually get mine at the MAC counter at macy's.

The MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is hands down my favorite powder that is on the market! It can be used alone or over a liquid foundation. The formula leaves you with a nice silky finish in return making your skin look flawless! I highly recommend it! I also love that it comes with a mirror and an applicator that goes in its own compartment below the product!

My fav foundation for Summers!! I have combination skin and it gets oily in summer (T zone mainly). All Liquid foundations I have tried doesn't help to keep my oil at bay. So I use only powder foundation in summer. And MAC has the best one in terms of shade selection, quantity, price & coverage. I use mine everyday..it gives great coverage and doesn't make my skin oily! Love it!!

This is an amazing powder foundation that leaves skin beautifully finished, matte and looking flawless. You can use this alone and it has a full coverage foundation or you can build it up and layer it over a liquid foundation to help set it and get more coverage. 

I'm a light skin and usually wear medium or natural medium foundations and I'm an NW 25 in this.

This is the one when it comes to foundation for me. This makes my skin look the prettiest out of any other powder foundation I've ever used. It stays on the longest as well. I've been using this powder since I was 15 so literally 18 years lol. I always try different ones, and the only one that comes close is the Kat Von D power foundation, but MAC C3 is the closest to my light-medium, yellow under toned skin. I also like the coverage it gives when I set my under eye concealer. Most other powders don't add much coverage, but I have super dark circles, and I want full coverage in that area. I apply it with a kabuki brush because I think it's the best way for this product. It helps me get the coverage I want without making my face look cakey. For the under eye area I use the sponge. The only things I don't like are that it contains Talc, which is a controversial product, and that it does transfer. I've had a few embarrassing moments when hugging someone lol, but because it makes me look good quickly, I think I will always keep buying this.

I’ve used this for years. This is an awesome powder on its own or you can use it as a setting powder on top of your liquid foundation. This is awesome for summer when you want to have coverage but don’t want to sweat everything off. This is a full coverage powder that covers and lasts like a dream. With a wide array of colors your bound to find your perfect shade.

Medium coverage powder foundation that’s great for those days when you don’t want to pack on the product. I will say it can look a bit drying under the eyes and it does kind of settle into fine lines if you don’t moisturize or really prep your skin. However this is a great foundation if you’re looking for a compact to take with you for touch ups and for daily use.

Review for: NW33 (online only) more...
It had a great coverage but it just didn’t work for my skin . I’m not one to break out but this foundation broke me out ! I only used it for a month enough to finish the compact. But after that I didn’t repurchase it had nice coverage but for my skin it was too harsh . I would recommend it again but I would say just be careful because it can cause breakouts .
