I was disappointed in this product.  It has a very natural looking finish, but doesn't wear well, at all.  The climate where I live is very hot, and I have found even when I set it with setting spray it doesn't seem to hold up to the heat/humidity the way I would expect for the price. I would recommend this makeup if you are only wearing your makeup for a few hours, max, as it seems to get a greasy look after wearing through the day. I've used M.A.C products in the past and have been very happy with them, however this is one product I wouldn't recommend.

The coverage was great, although I did find that this product had a tendency of settling in my smile lines. I can usually bypass the concern by applying a delicate coat of powder before primer, then this foundation, then setting powder and finally followed by bouncing a damp make up sponge to ensure a lasting smooth finish. I find that technique quite time consuming and rather just use a longer wear foundation that has less fluidity throughout the day.

My favorite powder foundation! I love that I'm able to build up coverage (I do this by varying my application method - brush for lighter coverage, velour puff for fuller coverage) and I love that it works over any primer I have. I have normal-leaning-dry skin and some powder foundations dry me out like crazy - I haven't had this issue with M.A.C.! M.A.C. is a classic for a reason!

I liked the coverage in this product which is why I gave it any stars since it’s studio fix which is the line they use as “studio makeup” so Ofcourse it’s going to be heavy which is what I expected. It doesn’t however cause breakouts bc of this like little bumps. And I do need to retouch through the day since it dies no prevent my oils from coming through.

This is the only foundation that I’ve used.  Very easy to apply and blends well into the skin.  To control the application, I use a foundation brush which prevents a heavy application.  It is pricey but I would recommend.  I always get compliments on my skin when I wear Studio Tech Foundation.

So lucky me I found this at a mall while I was buying a Cinnabon. I did wait for someone to come back for it but after like a couple of hours I was like ok finders keepers..lol I tried it on the next day and i really liked its smooth finish . Eventhough, it's not fill coverage I loved the light application .

I don’t love the Mac cosmetics powder foundation. It’s very thick and goes on cakey and doesn’t blend to your skin Well. It kinda just sits on your skin and looks like you threw powder on and didn’t feel like rubbing it in. The colors are accurate to match your skin but I am just not a fan

Before using this product, i was using a mineral one but i felt like it didn’t cover well, changed to MAC NC40 at first I got pimples but after a while my face got used to it, it covers great! Not expensive and i been using for years, almost since I started using make up. Recommend!

Excellent product that I use after concealer and/or foundation to ensure my face stays put throughout the day. I would highly recommend it and have even used it as a base without any concealer or foundation for days when I want very light sheer coverage so that my skin can breathe!
