MAC studio fix powder plus foundation:NC35
Hello my lovlies, after my lipsticks, i was keen enough to write about the only foundation that, I possess, the MAC STUDIO FIX PLUS POWDER FOUNDATION, my shade is NC35. All of here must be aware with the NC and NW nomenclature from MAC and certainly i fall amongst the yellow under toned family, hence NC being my shade☺
What MAC claims
Studio Fix is a powder and foundation in one that combines good coverage with ease of application! One-step application of foundation and powder! Designed to be used dry, the powder and pigments create a matte, velvety texture! It contains Silica, which helps to maintain a matte finish by absorbing oils on the skin as well as Talc to provide a smoother, less reflective, matte finish! The talc has been milled to a microscopic size to provide a beautiful texture while allowing the skin to breathe! Gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full-coverage finish! Long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours! A real all-in-one! The choice of Pros and a long time favourite of MAC fans! It is available in a wide range of colours! It can be applied with a brush, sponge or a powder puff!
Comes in a regular mac packaging, it is a black sturdy compact that has a mirror, a foundation pan, and a sponge case, all of it are well bifurcated and secure, it locks on well and is apt for travel, and i love the fa t that it has a mirror.
2100 INR or (I am not sure if MAC has increased price further)
NC35 with yellow undertones.
In Detail MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation Review
at first i was kind of ,confused between NC40 and NC 35, but after much consideration, i zeroed on NC35,tough sometimes i do find that it looks a bit lighter on my jaw line ,but that is not much of an issue
At first i went off with a powder foundation because, i know i am a little finicky with anything feeling heavy on my face, but hello who am i kidding i rarely do get time for even this during my rushing draining MBBS ,but it surely is something that i can snap on whenever in doubt or consideration. In the summers I do have used it as powder over once my mac face and body foundation and with that i can say, that this not only is a foundation in it self, but also a good setting powder if you have liquid foundation or bb cream underneath, without making the actual product look cakey.
It does come with a sponge which i rarely have used to apply foundation, but yeah u can use that sponge, by folding to blend in your concealer, as it is soft and somewhat like the beauty blender in texture.
For the coverage of the foundation I do find it do be sheer in coverage, somewhat like a setting powder, but surely more coverage than that ,but it surely is not at par with the L’Oreal true match powder foundation, in terms of coverage, but this foundation is really really good for daily wear if you please. ☺
Pros of MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
Easy to carry and easy to use.
Non cakey non drying
Doesn’t accentuate the dryness on the face
Did not cause any skin irritations on my super sensitive skin
Covers minor flaws and evens out the skin.
Convenient to use, daily. Just like a compact with a fluffy powder brush.
Doesn’t give flash backs ,like a few other powder foundation
Doesn’t look cakey ,or piled on’
One compact would go on long.
Cons of MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
Price- 2100 screaminggg., ever increasing MAC prices
The shades, they straight away skip a gap of five, should introduce shade in between .
