      Normally I use the water weight MAC foundation, but I got to say the studio fix is great and maybe better. I was able to get it in the same tone NC30 and it was an absolute HIT!! It offers more coverage without leaving my face feeling like a clown or like its about to crack, lol! (like some other brands do) Definitely recommend this product !!

        Comments about MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation:

        Foundation blends like a dream and provides great coverage. I normally use Smashbox Studio Skin Longwear Foundation (my holy grail) which doesn't crease, transfer or break throughout the day.
        While this foundation worked, it creases about halfway through the day. If you have oily skin I would not recommend this.
        It's a great foundation for the price and I will use it until I can go back and get my Smashbox.

                      Try NC 44 MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation. If it looks a tad deep, go with NC42, a bit light? Try NC45.

                      A:

                      When a foundation or powder appears orange on the skin it's an indication that the shade is too dark. Take a look at your veins along the underside of your forearm, if they appear bluer you have pink/beige undertones, if they appear greener you have yellow/olive undertones.

                      Select N and NW MAC shades if you have pink/beige undertones, select C and NC MAC shades if you have yellow/olive undertones.

                      MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation in NW18 is our best guess for a shade comparable to what you are currently using. MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation in NW20 is a touch deeper, the larger the number the deeper the shade.

                    I am very pale with not really golden or rosy undertones. But, if i had to choose then rosy would probably be better for me. Just not sure which shade is the lightest shade mac offers?

                      We're glad to help! Sounds like N4 (a very fair beige with neutral undertones) is a nice match for you in MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation. NW10 is similar, and also one of the lightest shades and an option for you, but with a rosy undertone.
