HGP - MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation


We all have products that we need to have around with us at all times. Something that we can't go one day without. For me, one of these products has been MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation. I've been  using this for a countless amount of years since early high school, alone and as a setting powder.

Since I was "blessed" with oily skin, I like to stay close to foundations with a matte finish. There is zero sparkle or shimmer in this powder.

I would say that depending on  how you apply it,  this powder foundation can be medium to full coverage, But if too heavily applied can come off as fake and cakey. Remember if not enough is applied you can always go back and add more. I will be the first to admit that I've gone overboard with a heavy hand, and that this has happened to me on numerous occasions, and is never a good look. On anyone. But once I got the hang of it, even the lightest application covers just about any problem area. Mine being acne scars.

If I use it alone I like to use my 182 MAC kabuki brush, that way I can really buff it into my skin.  When I use it as a setting powder I choose my MAC 134 large powder brush and just dust the powder over whatever other foundation I'm using.

This is little bit on the higher end at $32 CDN, and lasts me about 3 months. It's worth every single penny. I heard about MAC breaking people out, but in the last 8 years using this I have never had this being any problem. Just make sure you sanitize your brushes and wash them so you don't transfer germs to the foundation.

Have you tried MAC powders?


PS Loving Flo Rider - Wild one! On repeat!
