        I have melasma & acne scarring. I have tried them ALL. It's really the only one I use when I mean business, which is most days. If you have great skin & you are saying this is too heavy, you don't get it, and probablly didnt apply it correctly. I find this works with either brush or sponge, but may set a little better with a sponge like beauty blender. I bought a trillion other foundations to try for my wedding. NOPE. I wound up with my trusty StudioFix. There is only 1 other foundation I repeatedly buy thats my #2 (EL Double wear). I wear NC 20, have brunette hair and fair/medium skin. I can also wear NW18. I

        By S.Rodrigues

        from Providence, Rhode Island

        Comments about MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation:

        Usually after about an hour most foundations bring out my dry spots on my face exspecially if it's a Matte finish! BUT NOPE, not Mac. They never fail me using the Mac set primer with this foundation works wonders! I swatched this foundation on the side of tarte and maybelline stay foundation and this by far outlasted both! Recommend trying for yourself beauties.

        Comments about MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation:

        Had been using Lorac Foundation but was excited to try MAC to see if it was worth the hype (plus would save me a few $$ too)...unfortunately it was a total waste of money. Terrible Smell. Coverage is awful and I don't think it's very buildable. Caused tiny bumps all over my face. I've used drug store brands better than this. Only pro I can think of is all the shade selections. I am fair but have a beige/neutral undertone and I find that most brands only offer yellow and pink undertones in their fair shades, so that was actually spot on.

          I've been wearing this foundation for at least 10 yrs. I've gave others a try, some are very high end. I always end up going back to this. It's the best!! If you want a full coverage long lasting foundation, this definitely will give it to you.

                    A:

                    MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation works well on all skin types, but may be a touch too matte in the finish for a dry skin, Arianna. We suggest checking out MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation for your skin type, which has a comparable level of coverage (but a more satin finish).
