MAC Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation Reviews :
How many times have you wished that Big Pharma would just come up with something that will make make-up less of a bore and fast as well to not get late for your parties and family functions? Despair not, salvation is here in the form of MAC Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation.
It’s one of those all in ones! It’s a medium coverage foundation as well as powder, a real one step solution to your on the go make up problems. It’s really lightweight as well, a quality that is omnipresent in all foundations. It will not make you feel like you are wearing any makeup. It claims to last for at least eight hours, give or take a few. Its fragrance free as well. And it’s available in a very wide range of shades.
How to Use:
Its ease of application is pretty much guaranteed. Use a brush to buff it into your skin, forehead and cheeks.
Here is a trick, start by spraying a bit of moisture on your brush before you do this. The wet foundation holds longer and has a smoother finish. (Just don’t hold it under a tap, because that would wet it too much. The added moisture doesn’t ruin your product, so rest easy). Now, use another lighter shade like NW20 underneath your eyes for that extra matte, satin like finish that would increase the photogenic capabilities of your face.
Shelf life is 3 years from the date of manufacture as compared to a general powder which rarely extends over 2 years max.
My Experience and personal reviews
This product has been a lifesaver on many occasions. The talc has been refined, cut and broken down into microscopic dimensions, which allows the skin to breathe, and yet does not fail in providing a beautiful texture that smoothens over your skin all over.
If you apply it a bit too densely, it might get caked up after 4-5 hours. And you may find yourself shining and shimmering in the presence of bright lights as well. But all this is nothing a quick blot and a little touching up can’t fix.
For people with oily skin who have found out time and again that liquid concealers and foundations are not for them, this is the perfect product. Since it’s in powder form it doesn’t grease out your skin and make you glow and shine with beauty and even skin tone.
· Light weight
· Non oily and non-greasy
· Very easy to use and apply
· Very compact and easy to carry case
· Suitable for all skin types
· You need to get a hold of the perfect shade for your skin. Otherwise it looks quite unnatural.
· Provides medium coverage, so for all those age old acne scars, you need to apply a proper concealer first before you blend it in with the talc.
· A tad on the expensive side. MAC products come at a premium price after all (but it is for your precious face)
Would I purchase it again?
Yes, definitely. It is a perfect companion for long trips, and fits in your handbag without a problem. You can also use it as a finishing powder, if you do decide to wear full makeup. A very versatile product!
