Hope you are enjoying winters.
Today the product under the spot light is MAC Studio Fix fluid foundation. The review on this much hyped foundation was pending since long because I purchased it last year and using since then. Now it is the perfect time to write about my experience about it. So without further ado let's see what I have to say.
Foundation comes in a card board packaging of black colour which is staple of MAC. Shade number is written at the top flap and also at the bottom of the bottle. Foundation is inside a heavy glass bottle with black screw tight cap. Because of glass bottle, it is not travel friendly. Another thing is that it doesn't come with dispenser pump, ......which is a bummer. You can well imagine a foundation which is thick in texture, inside a glass bottle which has narrow opening and no dispensing pump. Well the company may not have included the pump to reduce the cost , but I will suggest you to get a separate pump to make life lot easier and to avoid mess.
The texture of foundation is thick and creamy. But once it gets blended it seems flawless and feels very light. Doesn't look or feel cakey. It has light to medium coverage and can also be build up for full coverage which is enough for me. But if you have very pigmented skin or dark circles then you might need concealer to hide them.
The finish is between matte and little dewy, can be well said as semi matte. I like the finish of this foundation because my skin is dry. Girls with oily skin will definitely experience shine and foundation probably transfer at some point.So they have to touch up with translucent powder to make it fully matte.
Staying power is also very good, it can last almost the whole day if the weather is not humid or you are staying indoors. Otherwise you may need touchups. But it also depends on skin type as well. I think it would last longer on dry and combination skin.
The shade that I got is NC 20. It is a very good match for my skin tone. But this shade doesn't add freshness to my face, which I always want from my foundation. So next time I would like to have NC15 ( one shade lighter).
Overall I really like this foundation. It's texture, finish, staying power, all are good. The only drawback is the bottle without pump, which is a must for liquid foundations. So I am going to have one. I bought it for PKR 2650/ from an online store. It is available at many online stores so prices may vary.
That is all about today. Have you tried this foundation, how was your experience?
Let me know in comments section.
Till next time take care and stay blessed.
