dont love


did not love this one, did not feel nice on my skin and found it hard to blend
  1. lovely


    used it at a friends house and i can say it is quite good. also a. little goes quite a long way.
  2. Go-to foundation


    Definitely a go-to foundation for me. I usually find I mix this foundation with the Dior foundation and it makes coverage and colour perfect for my skin. I always use a setting spray following this application. Stays on good in the Qld summer heat, too. Will certainly purchase again.
  3. Great for beginners


    One of the first foundations I purchased when I started wearing makeup. Great range of shades, beautiful coverage and easy to blend
  4. good


    all time fave. have always loved this foundation
  5. Really impressed!


    I have had no luck finding a long wearing foundation with my oily skin, but this was really surprising! Probably could’ve set around my nose a little better, but it touches up well (most others, once they slip, I can’t fix it).
  6. Love it


    Have used Mac for years and to this day I find it gives the best coverage is longlasting . I can always rely on this foundation
  7. YES 100% YES


    LOVE!! One I keep coming back to. It's breathable, not too heavy but covers nicely and blends well. Isn't cakey or drying at all. I love this foundation!
  8. Great classic foundation


    A great foundation with good coverage but still breathable. This foundation is one I keep coming back to. Doesn’t make me break out and is long lasting.


    Studio mix is a match made in heaven. over the years I’ve tried so many different brands of foundation but nothing compares to this old favourite. Great coverage, easy to work with, light weight and has true staying power! The only foundation worth having.
  10. Beautiful formula and seamless application


    I have been using this product for years and still absolutely love it. The product applies seamlessly and sits beautifully all day. The coverage is medium to high. The formula does not feel thick or sticky. I also find that it works well for my skin which is prone to acne flare-ups. Highly recommend.
  11. Great coverage


    Was using the ordinary foundation until I found this. Has great coverage and the colour is perfect. Has long durability too!
  12. good


    This is a good foundation. The coverage is buildable and it applies nicely
  13. OG Favourite


    The first high-end foundation that I ever bought and I still love it 5 years later. The coverage is buildable and the finish is lovely
  14. One of the best foundations


    Personally one of the best full coverage matte foundations. A little bit goes a long way, if you want a light coverage it is very doable as it doesn’t look cakey but super buildable for girls who like a full coverage look. It’s matte however you skin still looks hydrated and radiant whilst being matte and having no shine. The colour options are great also, especially for olive skin like mine as I ...

  15. dont love


    did not love this one, did not feel nice on my skin and found it hard to blend
  16. Nice finish


    Perfect shade for medium to neutral tone skin with a touch of colour . I have previously used shade NW25 and found it a little yellow/dark but ok when I'm tanned . Easy to glide on the skin and leaves a nice semi matte finish . Foundations with an SPF I usually find a little heavy but not this one
  17. Classic


    An old faithful for me! Coverage is buildable. Something i love. I don’t like alot of make up during the day but at night OR when needed i can go hard.
  18. Beautiful finish and excellent shade range


    Although this product is a matte, full coverage foundation, it really doesn't look it. Yes, you get the coverage you need but it's also a very natural look. I have dry skin and have never experienced flaking or separating with Studio Fix Fluid. It also mixes well with moisturiser to sheer out (or use sparingly on its own for a similar effect).

    For those sensitive to fragrance, Studio ...

  19. Full coverage


    This foundation is really heavy, I wouldn't recommend it for daily use. It's better for those with lots of acne or discoloration. Great for MUAs or photography, though. The coverage is insane, very potent, and even, good to have in your arsenal for special occasions.
  20. My new favourite foundation


    I use lots of different foundations for different occasions , seasons and time of day mostly worn . I’ve used face and body as well as another shade in studio fix which was a little too deep in colour for me . This one in NW20 is perfect .
    Glides only well and has staying power without it becoming cakey . Extra bonus is SPF leading up to summer I like my foundation to have a sunscreen .

  21. Full coverage but oxidise


    This is another full coverage foundation from mac with great selection of shades, but I found that this oxidise after few hours. I have tried it with primer, without primer etc..my shade is nc 30. But it definitely gives you flawless finish.
  22. My go to foundation


    This is my go-to foundation that covers well, sits nice on my oily-combo skin and the SPF is an added bonus.
  23. Great for buiding!


    This product is great for medium coverage and can be built on with ease. It feels great on my skin and lasts for a very long time.
  24. Good coverage


    Good coverage, blends really well, paired with a good setting powder stays on all night!
  25. Good coverage


    Bought it few months ago. The coverage was good and the look of makeup is good
  26. Always Always


    Always love my studio fix foundation. Leaves your face fully covered with a great colour match for my skin. Slightly matte with a little dew.
  27. One of the best


    Max Studio Fix Fluid always has and continues to be one of the most loved foundation but only for those of us looking for foundation with exceptional coverage, the option to conform to a more dewy or matte finish and have a big day or night and not have the product transfer or fade.

    Would suggest getting help with colour matching - can run very yellow or orange in the NC varieties.
  28. MAC


    This was a foundation that I wanted to try for ages, its reviews are great and it is overall a reputable foundation on the market. I have pale cool-toned skin, and I do find this very yellow toned. The finish is matt but not too drying although it can crease if you layer it with too much powder. It's overall really good, but just not for my skin tone and type.
  29. Not right for my skin


    I wanted to find a foundation with better coverage than my Clinique Superbalanced, but unfortunately this MAC product is not for me. I'm not sure whether it's my skin, my moisturiser, or my setting powder, but it separates on the oily parts of my skin, particularly my nose, within a few hours. It also has a strong medicinal smell, like disinfectant. Adore Beauty's colour matching tool was excellen...

  30. Great coverage


    I’ve used studio fix for years now as it provides excellent coverage for long periods of time. Has a nice finish and blends well. If you’re prone to dry skin, make sure to moisturise, prime and have a good skincare routine as I’ve found it can stick to dry patches!
  31. My best friend


    I am obsessed with this foundation. I've been wearing it for years. I've used others here and there and the only other one that can compete is the Estee Lauder double wear. The only issue I have is how quickly it oxidises. I've found once it oxidises NC20 (which is my shade) becomes a little dark/orange so I then mix it with NC15 for the perfect shade. Still my fave though
  32. Holy grail


    This foundation is in my top 3 foundations. I love the coverage and how it sits on top of my skin.I Definitely reach more for this one on a day to day basis.
  33. Really disappointed


    It didn't blend easily at all, I had to use a lot of product to get even medium coverage. I was really disappointed in the limited colour ranges, it's too dark but the lighter one is too light. It's way overpriced when I have $20 foundations that are better.
  34. A foundation you can count on


    I always used to use this foundation but thought I’d try something different. Never again! This foundation is so easy to apply, does not leave the skin shiny at the end of the day, and with my older skin does not show off my first signs of wrinkles. It’s flawless and does not leave tour skin feeling like it’s fighting g for air.
  35. good coverage


    This foundation is very good coverage however i find it tends to dry out my skin quite a bit so probably more suited to oilier skin types.
  36. Classic


    This is a cult favourite and I do love it but don't think you are getting a light coverage or natural foundation. This is a heavy one but it covers anything you need it to an wears beautifully.
  37. Iconic


    This is the first ever grown up foundation I purchased way back at the start of the decade and its been a staple in my beauty bag every since. The shade range is wonderful, I'm NC15 and it is just flawless. Personally I prefer a more dewy finish (who doesn't nowadays) for the day time so this is reserved for evening wear. I definitely recommend purchasing the pump, too. If you're a bit on the dry ...

  38. On my makeup bag since 2014


    I always repurchase it as it works perfectly. Leaves my skin uniform, not too dry on some delicate areas, not too oily in the T zone, even tone... I’m not a make up expert but this foundation has made my life easier.
    Fun fact: This specific last bottle I bought was because the previous one fell from my sink onto the floor and broke. An almost brand new bottle. Foundation all over the floor. ...

  39. Nice foundation


    This is a great foundation with good coverage. I reach for Mac’s face and body foundation more often because it’s less heavy but this is great when I feel I need more coverage. It lasts me through the day too.
  40. Really good coverage

    Jen B

    This is not my holy grail foundation but it definitely comes close. It has excellent coverage and lasts a long time. I'm not a fan of the bottle, it's hard to get the last bits out but overall it is reasonably priced and I would recommend this foundation.
  41. A must have


    I am now on my fifth bottle of this foundation! It matches my skin tone perfectly, has amazing staying power, and has amazing coverage. I purchased the pump dispenser that goes with the Mac range of foundations and I save so much more of the product. I am very fair-skinned and I used to have trouble finding a foundation that matched it. NW15 is my shade!
  42. Great foundation!


    I’ve been wearing this off and on for years. It’s a great medium coverage foundation with a nice matte finish. It’s long lasting but not too heavy to wear all day. I especially love Mac for their colour range, I wear NC15 and it’s perfect.
  43. hard to use on dry skin


    i love MAC makeup, but this foundation is a bit hard to spread without the use of primer if you have really dry skin.
  44. My holy grail


    My go to foundation when i want something i know and trust that will stay on all day! Love it so much and have gone through 4 bottles!
  45. My one and only foundation!


    I have tried so many different brands of foundation and can't top this one. If your looking for a full coverage foundation this is your guy! I have freckles and pigmentation on my skin and this covers all the unevenness and it lasts for hours. I find it works great with combination skin as I get oily in the T-zone and a bit dryer on the other areas of my face. This helps combat both. It doesn't ge...

  46. classic


    It is lovely all time favorite professional foundation. It always wear lovely and gives nice coverage without looking cakey
  47. Great staple - medium coverage


    Great staple in your makeup bag. This is buildable medium coverage and has a yellow undertone. I change colour in winter / summer and will have to buy 2 x different colours.
  48. An all time classic


    This foundation has been a part of my life nearly 15 years now and I can’t ever find another foundation that does as good coverage without build up. It smooths over skin perfectly and stays on the entire day (especially withy the Mac mineralize pressed powder!) would highly recommend
  49. Good finish


    I have a lot of pigmentation and this covers them very well. The finish is also so smooth and it lasts all day
  50. Yellow tones


    I love Mac products but I’m quiet pale with a pink undertone and find I look like I’ve dunked my face in yellow based fake tan and look like I’m in the early 2000’s makeup trend. It’s to yellow for me, but has good coverage
  51. Buildable coverage


    This foundation is great. Always lasts all day and never disappoints. Coverage is so buildable which I love.
  52. Great coverage


    I have used this foundation for over 10 years.
    It’s the only foundation I have found lasts hours without the need for a primer. It’s not cakey and leaves a natural feel
  53. Not Bad at All


    I have very fair (practically translucent!) skin, and I’ve always had a lot of trouble colour matching. Very impressed with the range of colours, and that the lighter colours come in both pink and yellow bases. Colour matched very well.

    Foundation itself works well overall. I find it emphasises my pores, so I’m using a poreless primer underneath it which has sorted it out.
  54. Girls bestfriend

    Mama Shaz

    I've said it time and time again, I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. It is my go-to and I will probably use it until they stop making it. Love the coverage which is FULL and the texture which us very smooth. Does not feel heavy on wear at all.
  55. Cult must


    The buildable coverage, the selection of shades are versatile so fits my complexion when I’m pAsty and tanned
  56. perfect foundation


    hands down my favourite foundation
  57. Mac fav


    I do love this product! has been my go to foundation for so long! and it has SPF15 in it! medium coverage can build to full coverage!
  58. Great coverage!


    This foundation has fantastic coverage, it is also SPF15. 100% worth the money.
  59. Goes Orange with Long Wear


    I am a big fan of Mac product, however, I found that this foundation oxidised after wearing it for a whole day. :( However, I did look really good in the morning and with short term wear
  60. Holy Grail


    This foundation has been my go-to ever since I tried it. I cannot emphasise enough on how amazing the coverage is, and how easy it is to apply with a foundation brush or beauty blender. Great skin colour range, amazing matte finish, doesn’t get oily throughout the day, and covers all imperfections.
  61. Great foundation


    This is a great full coverage foundation. I love it on my oily skin type. I feel like it can work on so many different skin types. The shade range is also excellent.
  62. Makes skin look flawless


    This foundation is really easy to blend and build up for more coverage. It looks like a second skin, doesn't show off all the dry parts of my skin and makes my skin look so smooth. Would say this is an essential part of my makeup collection
  63. Perfect all-rounder foundation


    I'm a makeup artist, and this is the foundation I stock in my kit. It is the perfect all-rounder foundation for all skin types. It is has the most beautiful satin finish which looks great in photographs. It is medium to full coverage but if you'd like a lighter, more natural look, just spray some MAC Fix Plus into it to sheer it out before applying. As an oily skin type myself, I find this foundat...

  64. Everyday Bestie


    Everyday long-lasting great coverage, I use this for my everyday work look.
  65. Problematic for dry skin around the nose


    I was recommended this by a make up specialist so I decided to try it out, and boy did it not go well. I tend to have issues with my nose when it comes to make up and it often makes it pretty flaky, and this foundation did just that. It was very cakey looking too, even with a light but small layer. Switched to a different brand foundation that worked much better
  66. Long lasting


    For all skin type, but it can be cakey
  67. not the best


    not sure about this. I didn't love it, it didn't feel that great and for the money there are better foundations out there
  68. Great coverage foundation


    Absolutely love this foundation. Great coverage, which you can build up as needed. Stays on all day with minimal oxidation ( I tend to get oily throughout the day). Great colour range- with colours being true to description. Only issue: this product doesn't have a pump top, making it hard to control the amount of product that comes out. You can purchase an add on pump top, which then you can keep ...

  69. Amazing coverage


    This foundation is great, went above my expectations for the price point. Staying power is long and the colours are very close to accurate
  70. the perfect foundation for a flawless base


    My ideal foundation is one that is lightweight but of a medium to full coverage - this foundation does exactly this. A super lightweight but buildable formula, it has a satin finish and does not grab to any dry patches on my skin at all. If you're after a more dewy finish, I would only set the foundation with a setting powder in any areas that tend to get a little oily.
  71. Lovely and smell amazing


    Really like this foundation. I am very yellow in colour so it does not perfectly match my shade. Other than that it is great.
  72. a classic


    amazing coverage, lasts for so long and leaves a beautiful finish
  73. My Everyday Foundation


    This foundation is buildable up to full coverage and I like the satin finish it leaves. It's not drying on my skin, and once set down with powder it lasts all day long. I love that MAC has such a huge shade range because I buy NC10 (my lightest shade) and NC20 (my most tan shade) and mix them together for my perfect match.
  74. fav


    One of my fav foundations out there. I have combination skin and this works great as it gives a matte finish and has a good coverage. Stays on all day and doesn't fade.
  75. Foundation go to


    The only foundation that matches my skin tone perfectly (a big yes for yellow/olive toned skin people!). Application is super smooth, easy to blend in and gives amazing coverage especially over acne and hyperpigmentation. I don't mind the smell like some others seem to - better than to hide it with perfumes or harsher chemicals. Lasts all day and gives a beautiful finish.
  76. Nothing special for me


    I had high hopes for this foundation but I have to say I don’t see anything special about it. I found a drugstore brand had better coverage. It feels nice on the skin though and for some reason I love the smell of the foundation probably wouldn’t repurchase though, especially for the price point.
  77. Good but not great


    Good but makes my skin oily. Great coverage though
  78. Fantastic!


    It works on so many skin types and looks beautiful on the skin. I love how they have so many shades and undertones available.This is a must have , I simply love it.
  79. like it


    Great foundation, recommend to use it with the primer prior. It doesn't sit in fine lines and wrinkles so it has a smoothing effect.
  80. A classic


    Amazing, sits well, and lasts ages!
  81. Great coverage


    This foundation blends well with my skin and covers my acne well
  82. Such a great classic!


    The studio fix foundation is such a classic and great foundation! I feel like it just works on so many different skin types and the shade range is amazing! Love love love it. Giving it 4.5 stars because I get so annoyed when foundations make you purchase the pump, especially because the MAC pump is 13$ so it puts the price of the foundation to be quite high and if you use multiple shades it can ge...

  84. Good product with pros and cons

    Emma Loves Makeup

    One of my favourite foundations that I used for years. I have oily skin that goes shiny after a few hours but I find once I set this with powder and setting spray it usually stays quite well. It's very buildable and layers nicely with concealer and powder. I do agree with other reviews here that mention oxidation over time - I've found a couple of bottles that went a bit funny over time. All in al...

  85. Full coverage


    This is a good foundation if you want full coverage - easy to blend and goes on smooth. For less coverage, it mixes well with my Garnier BB cream.
  86. Good coverage


    I love this foundation. Good coverage, buildable and easy to blend. The matte finish is not drying but leaves my skin looking soft. Also, a great range of shades so I was able to match very closely to my skin tone.
  87. Alright


    It is okay but I found it a bit oily and maybe that's because it has SPF in it. Also, I found it to oxidise quite a bit and change to a yellowy shade over time. I have a habit of buying many different foundations at once and I don't think I will finish this bottle or repurchase it just because there are so many better ones on the market by brands like Clarins, Lancome and Georgio Armani.
  88. great formula


    the formula of this foundation is great! it is very blendable and the coverage is perfect. definitely recommend
  89. Great


    I use a very small amount of this foundation for an almost natural finish. It works well for my oily skin and lasts around 8 hrs
  90. Far too heavy


    This foundation was far too thick and heavy for my skin. Better for people looking for full coverage foundation.
  91. Good coverage


    I have been using studio fix for 16 years now on and off. I love the coverage; however always end up leaving the product behind due to the orange undertones and the fact that it oxidises on my skin by the end of the day. It’s still a great product and the coverage is unparalleled. I’m sure it will
    Remain a regular addition to my makeup routine.
  92. Great!


    I love how they have so many shades and undertones available.This is a must have and love for so many people and I completely understand why. It works on so many skin types and looks beautiful on the skin.
  93. Great coverage!


    This product definitely provides great coverage that lasts all day long! It is however a little bit too thick for me and as a result makes my skin look pretty cakey! It doesn't sit very smoothly on my skin, it kind of gets in the creases and accentuates my bumps! I have seen it look amazing on other people though so it may just be my skin type, which is a little bit dry.
  94. Wow coverage


    It gives such a great coverage and after testing it out it is definitely one that I need. It even worked well with my sensitive skin
  95. Amazing


    Been an absolute favorite of mine for over two years now. High coverage, can easily withstand a full day of application at work, and worth the money. Can be bit drying for dry areas as I have combination skin, best to use with hydrating primer.
  96. Great full coverage foundation


    If you want a full coverage foundation this is perfect. Has a great range of shades also. I didn’t find it broke me out, but I never wore it for long periods .
  97. Good Coverage


    This foundation is good and I like that it has SPF. It is long lasting, applies easily and has buildable coverage. There are a lot of shade options so it's easy to find one that matches your tone. I do think it is a little thicker and doesn't allow the skin to breathe as much as other options out there. I now prefer a more natural lighter look so have moved on to something else, but overall, I wou...

  99. great but not fantastic


    the foundation blends well into the skin and leaves a smooth complex, although it does oxides quite a bit
