Okay, I admit it! I am a massive MAC fan. Despite their high prices I am always drooling over their products. MAC is a hugely popular make up brand all over the world, and arguably the best! Their products are AMAZING quality, and the packaging is beautiful too.
So, I wanted to review a hugely popular product from MAC, that every make up artists have in their bag – MAC Studio Fix. Studio Fix is a powder and foundation all in one. It promises good coverage with ease of application, which creates a matte velvety texture on the face. Just what I need for my oily skin!
The compact comes with a sponge that slots underneath the powder, but to be honest, it is better off using a very slightly damp make up brush such as Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or Stippling Brush. In my opinion you get much better and even coverage that way.
As I applied the compact for the first time, I noticed how light it felt on my skin, but still covering the redness ans spots. It is really soft to touch and although it is a powder (I normally use a heavy coverage oil free foundation) it covered my problematic skin pretty well, especially when using a slightly damp brush!
The picture above does not show how I would normally finish. I would normally finish off my contouring my face to add dimension and colour back, but I wanted to show you bare how it works.
The power/foundation stayed put ifor around 6 hours for me (I used a primer underneath), and as it is a compact, it is easy to put in your bag to touch up when you need to!
MAC Studio Fix retails on maccosmetics.co.uk for £21.50 which to me is a little over priced. If I was to price it, I would put it at around £15. Although, I guess it is a professional product.
I do recommend MAC Studio Fix, if you can afford it, but there are some amazing dupes out there that work the same for much less. I just wanted to indulge in MAC!
