Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation Review

Friday, January 02, 2015
Happy New Year! Hope you all had a lovely NYE. I went to London for a few days and watched the fireworks, it was amazing. I will be doing a post/haul of my trip to London but i need to take more pictures so it will be up either Sunday or Monday. Today i decided to review my Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation which my boyfriend bought me for Christmas. I haven't tried a Mac foundation before but i have loved all of my other Mac products iv tried.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation Review

First things first, the packaging. I love how it does come in a glass bottle which also makes foundation feel that bit more expensive but it doesn't come with a pump. It really does annoy me how you pay money for a top quality product but then they leave the pump off just so they can make extra money. I actually bought the pump a few days later from Selfridges which in store it only cost me £3.60. Once you put the pump on you cant put the original lid/top back on the foundation. One thing with the pump is that it does twist so you cant push it down by accident.

Next is the shade, my boyfriend picked this up in NC20 which is a yellow tone. Once applied on my skin it is a pretty good match and doesn't look too yellow based. I have tried applying this with my flat top face brush and also my Real Techniques Sponge. I found applying it with my brush did give me fuller coverage than using the sponge but when i used the sponge it spread the product better and i didn't use as much. The coverage i would say is medium.

So did it work well and last with my oily skin? I applied this early in the morning and used my Mac Studio Fix Powder on top and i then checked my foundation again around early afternoon and found it seemed to last well and not go patchy. The only thing i did notice was that it did cling to the small dry patches i have on my cheeks at the moment due to the horrible weather. 

Overall i think this is a good foundation especially for oily skin rather than dry skin. Have you tried this foundation?

  1. I love studio fix foundation, I also use NC20 :) Lately I've been using L'Oreal True Match as I find the mac clings to dry patches at times too x

    1. It feels so lightweight on your skin too! I tried the L'Oreal one but it didnt agree with my skin x

  2. I absolutely love this foundation, definitely the best I've ever used! I mix mine with MAC strobe cream and it really makes your skin glow and I've found it doesn't stick to dry patches when I mix it with a bit of strobe cream too! X

  4. This sounds great! I like yellow-toned foundations (like Rimmel's Wake Me Up) as it suits my skin tone better and evens out the redness in my skin. I really want to try this foundation! Although it's a bit rubbish you have to pay extra for the pump x

  7. I already tried this foundation. It's good and it has a good coverage. I have combination skin but on my face it looked dry in some parts!

    Great review!

  11. I've only ever tried a sample of MAC foundation and I wasn't too keen on it. Maybe if I used it more often, I might change my mind though. Great review!

  13. I'm on the lookout for a new foundation and this sounds great - some of their others I've tried have been quite thick but this sounds a lot more up my street! Great review :)

    1. its definitely not thick at all! If you apply with a sponge it feels so much better x

  14. I've only ever used MAC's lipsticks, I should really branch out more and try other products of theirs. I've seen a lot of positive comments about this foundation, annoying that it doesn't initially come with a pump though
