Wow just wow

Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

I recently bought this because I needed a change in foundations. I have used bareMinerals for years and over time noticed that even the lightest shade was making me look orange. I went into Ulta asked them for recommendations for different powder foundations and to do a shade matching. Mac Studio Fix Powder plus in shade NC10 was a perfect match! I mean it melted directly into my skin and you couldn't even tell I was wearing anything it was too perfect. Also it will provide sheer to full coverage depending on how you apply it. I'm a medium coverage girl. Though it's good to know when I need full coverage I dont have to reach for anything else. I would also like to mention if you have oily skin this is the right product for you. If you have combo skin like myself make sure you apply hydrating facial lotion to your non oily areas.

    Comments about MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation:

    Product went on smoothly and was buildable using Kabuki brush. Covered age spots well and evened out skin tone. Product placed around mouth has a dry, chemical taste, but for the most part it stayed on well. I ordered the fair with neutral tone; but, now that summer is here, I am tanning and think the medium with neutral tone would be good for tanned skin.

          I have been a Bobbi Brown regular until I just came across this little gem! It's half the price of my regular B.B. foundation and the coverage and pigmentation are great! I'm so happy I came across this product. Also you can't go wrong trying this product given Ulta will allow you to return it if you don't like it.

          This is my FAVORITE powder foundation. It really smooths out my skin tone and gives great coverage considering it's a powder. If you put it on top of any foundation, it will give you ful coverage. It's a little pricier that I usually pay for makeup, but I love this stuff so much I'll keep buying it again and again!

              Having sensitive, red skin, it took me a while to find a good powder foundation. Finally, this works for me!! I use the sponge for places where I need more coverage, and finish applying it on the rest of my face with the Airbrush Complexion Perfection Brush #115, and I finish it off with a spritz of rosewater to freshen it up. The coverage is medium to buildable, and it lasts for the majority of the day. Since my skin is sensitive and acne prone, I get nervous trying new products. However, it has not caused any breakouts, additional redness or rashes! I am happy with this purchase.

                My daughter used this as an under the eye brightner. I must say. It did the job and looked stunning It gives just enough "light" to make the eye more awake and "pop" once shadow applied.

                  My daughter already has beautful skin, but we wanted to glam her up for her 8th grade dance. We wanted something not too heavy, but still gave that airbrush effect and this make up DID THE JOB. I am in love with the way it applies and blends perfectly.

                      MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in N5 (a medium deep beige with pink undertones) is our best guess for a comparable shade. Set makeup with MAC Prep + Prime Fix + spray to remove any powdery residue and prolong wear.

                      Our best guess for a comparable shade is MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in N5 (a rosy beige with neutral undertone for light to medium skin). This formula is a one-step powder and foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium-to-full coverage and controls oil and shine

                    I am normally NW20 in this foundation. I occasionally spray tan and the last time I did I got color matched for it and they gave me NW25. While it looks ok, I feel it is a bit too pink for the color of the spray tan on my body. And comparable shades that are a little less pink?

                      Hi Jenni! We think you'll find our NC shades (which provide a more golden tone) to work better for your tan skin. If the NW25 works well depth-wise, choose the NC30 shade in MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation for one even tone.
