In Detail MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation Review, Swatches and My Experience

(Shade: NC 30)

The MAC Studio fix fluid foundation was one of the brand foundations (many shades) in my professional kit when as a newbie Artist I was looking for a good base for the clients and after lots of good reviews and some recommendations I decided to buy this product.

Moving on to its packaging, the Foundation comes in a heavy glass jar bottle with a black screw cap on it without pump which makes it NOT so travel friendly. This foundation comes in a wide range of shades range- NW (Neutral Warm) which is meant for cool, pink undertones and NC (Neutral cool) which is for warm, yellow undertones. So don’t get confused.

The texture of this foundation is creamy (not runny) and quiet thick in consistency but blends easily. It can be applied using a beauty blender or buffing brush. I prefer using Real Techniques Buffing Brush. The coverage it provides is medium to high which sets the face to a natural matte finish.

Now let’s talk about the formula. It’s a silicon based product and has the tendency to break-out the sensitive skin types. People having normal to oily skin can give it a try but if you have dry and sensitive acne-prone skin like me then STAY AWAY from this product and I found it even oxidises a little on my skin also. The good thing is that the product has a good staying power. It lasts up to 6-7 hours easily even without a primer.

God! You know what! MAC is NOT a cruelty- free brand. They test their products on innocent animals. So I’ll definitely try to use cruelty free brand next time.

    Nice review! Would like to know why it may not be okay for dry skin? Does it have a powdery/ cakey finish?

    • Gunjan July 3, 2016, 3:43 pm

      Thank you Aarti Singh. Yes it dries to a matte finish n I find it looks cakey on dry skin.

    I like M.A.C! Can you review a strobe foundation?

    This foundation works amazingly on my oily skin.. however I wouldn’t recommend for regular wear as it needs to be worked in to the skin and can feel heavy.
