Love!

Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

I've been using Too Faced powder foundation and it was the best I've ever tried, until now. I wish I knew sooner that this Studio Fix was great. It lasts longer than TF, it's a little cheaper than TF, and it has more product inside. It also controls my oily t-zone and that's my biggest requirement. I love this!

Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

I love this so much. I was a little worried about using a powder foundation. However I love using this now. I think that it is very good for when you don't have time to sit in front of the mirror for an hour in the morning. I use one of the pro flat buffer brushes from morphe as well as a beauty blender in some places.

Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

I love this product. As a high school teacher, I have to wake up at 5:30 every morning and there isn't time to put on liquid foundation. This gives the same buildable coverage in about 30 seconds. It takes a couple tries to figure out how much to use and not look too "powdery", but once you get it, it is consistently great!

I use a powder foundation brush to apply. I don't like to use the sponge it comes with. I am able to get more product on my brush. Also, use the prep prime fix+. I like how it feels light on my skin and fast to apply!

            Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

            I can't believe how smooth this goes on, how natural it looks, how great it stays on, and that it keeps looking fantastic ALL day!
            I just turned 60 and was looking for something with medium to full coverage (to cover age spots) without looking cakey or overdone. Also, I have very problematic skin due to age and having both non-Hodgekins lymphoma and Sjogren's syndrome.
            I WILL LOOK NO FURTHER; as this is the only foundation I'll buy. Also, it doesn't build-up in wrinkles and de-emphasizes my flaws. I love it!

                  A:

                  We're glad to help, Aisha! MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation delivers a matte finish and full coverage. Be sure you allow your moisturizer and primer to dry down a few moments before applying to ensure a smooth application. We also suggest applying this product with a Powder Brush (beginning in the center of the face, blending outwards) for the most flawless results. Additionally, you can add MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ which is also a fantastic product to mist onto the skin after applying Studio Fix to remove an overly matte finish.
