Smooth and perfect pigment

Alij

I have fair skin, however I find that this particular formula allows me to go up or downs shade without it being noticeable. It literally lasts me an entire day, and is perfect to apply via brush, sponge or fingers!
I much prefer this MAC foundation blend over any other.

I found this foundation to feel quite heavy on my skin. The coverage was okay however I did find that it oxidised quite a bit. Not my favourite

  2. Daily go to

    J

    Love studio fix and have been using for years. Now that I am getting older I like to use an illuminator underneath for more blurred and fresh look. I use it every day and despite being quite a heavy cover it doesn’t cause me to have breakups (have used other brands w my regular primer and have broken out badly) c3.5 is a great shade although I wish it came in a slightly light shade for winter.
  3. Full coverage and not heavy

    Anjae

    this is my go to foundation for full coverage. its not heavy on when applied. It covers all my pigmentation and the power sits on top. I have Oily skin and I don't have excess after use.
  4. It’s good

    Joel

    Very thick and covers basically anything. It can clog my pores a little so I don’t use it all the time. Still nice though.
  5. Trusty foundation

    Teigz

    I have been using this foundation for many many years and I am yet to find one I like as much. The only thing that I don’t love is I have to mix 2 colours. It lasts for ages and isn’t cakey.
  6. Nice full coverage foundation

    kimmmyberley

    I like this foundation because it is really full coverage and has really great lasting power. I usually go for a more sheer formulation but I like using this on a night out or for a special occasion when I want to look flawless.
  7. Good shade match

    Mia

    I give this foundation 2 stars for shade match packaging. The colour nc25 matched my ski perfectly and I love the packaging with the pump, but that’s where it stops. I hate the foundation. It looks like paint and it smells like paint. It’s so thick and dry looking. I guess if you want full coverage and full matte then you will love it, however not for me
  8. Holy Grail

    Lauren

    I always come back to this foundation even with dry skin! Looks lovely mixed with some Mac strobe cream
  9. Daily wear

    Ash

    I went into Mac for a colour match and he did a great job! I love this product! I wear a mask at work almost all day as well as glasses and with this foundation, I never have marks on my face. Which is great because it’s super annoying having to constantly touch up during the day. But with this I don’t have too! It took me a little while to find the best suited daily moisturiser to wear under this foundation as I usually get an oily t zone. But I’ve found the Alpha H daily essential spf moisturiser is amazing underneath as I don’t get an oily
    Nose by lunch time. Also this bottle lasts months!

  12. Everyday wear

    Ali B

    This is a light natural looking foundation ideal for everyday wear. Easy to apply and can build up for a fuller coverage.
  13. Good coverage

    Terri

    This is a good coverage foundation. My skin is fair and a little dry, I have to really lather the serums and moisturiser before applying this foundation. Probably not suited for really dry skin types.
  14. Full coverage without the cake

    Karlie

    I’m this used to be my OG foundation years ago and I decided to try it again for old times sake. It’s just a lovely formula. Smells like paint, but applies so nicely. You can build the coverage without getting cake face. It doesn’t oxidise once the oils come through and it’s a comfortable matte formula. It stays put on my oily face too which is the main thing. I will say that the colours seem to be a little orange compared to what they used to. I have always worn nc30 and had to add a mixer so I didn’t look muddy.
  15. Always come back to this

    Lizzie

    I have used this foundation for over a year now and love the formula, it has such good staying power and doesn't tend to seperate on my skin like a lot of other foundations do when worn on hot days! I do find it can cling to dry patches but if i mosturise first thats not a problem! 100% recomend!
  16. Cult favourite

    Sam

    I seriously have been using this for years!
    It will never get old, occasionally I’ll go off the beaten track but nothing compares to the good old studio fix!

    I've been using this foundation for the last 6 or so years and will never change. Great coverage, easy to apply and lasts! Love it
  19. Quality foundation

    Sassy M

    I am 40 and have recently found the dewy foundations I used to use are no longer working for my skin type, which has shifted to being on the oily side. I was sick of having a shiny forehead after two hours, so I thought it was time to try a foundation that worked better with my skin type. I'm really happy with this foundation, which is easily applied (I'm using a beauty blender) and has good staying power. It's also easy to control how heavy you want to apply it. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a pump to dispense the product, meaning you have to pour it out and sometimes waste a bit. Overall, I do recommend it, but if your skin is a bit dry you'll just need to keep on top of your exfoliation and moisturise well or it'll show up the dry patches.
  20. My first love!

    Kathleen

    this was one of my first foundation that i used! i have loved it ever since! its creamy and glides on the skin without slipping off! doesn't dry out your face!
  21. Better than most

    alysia

    I like this foundation as it does have good coverage. It is a little yellow to me so layering it on made it a bit cakey, however... it is a great foundation that does have good coverage. It lasts a long time on your face and does not smudge.
  22. beautiful foundation

    Bella

    Blends out really nicely and stays put a long time. Can cling to dry patches though.
  23. Only foundation ill ever use.

    Ciara

    Amazing foundation! It is on the more fuller coverage side but its buildable which is great for day i want more lighter coverage! Even with oily skin theres no need to set it stays in place all day and ive never had gone orange! Definitely the price!
  24. full coverage

    t

    this foundation is amazing for a full coverage night, it stays on for so long! recommend to people with oily skin
  25. Amazing

    Emily

    I’ve been using this foundation for years.. every time I try something different it never compares and I’m always going back to it.
  26. Beautiful

    Tiradesmum

    I have extremely sensitive dry flaky skin, I mix this with MAC Face and Body (very sheer and moisturising) for more coverage. This was the suggestion of a MAC MUA. It works beautifully and looks very perfect but not caky or makeup-like. I would advise trying colours in real life though as its so hard to get it right. This does have a lovely variety of very pale shades. To be honest this is like a super beautiful MUCH much nicer, more beautiful and natural looking version of revlon colourstay :D
  27. Great Coverage

    Tanya

    This is an amazing foundation, it applies smoothly and doesn't emphasise dry patches as well as giving very high coverage which can be built or diluted as desired. The shades are amazing and i have found my perfect match in NC44. Highly recommend.
  28. Good but not for a natural look

    Mish

    I used to use this foundation when I wanted a full coverage look. This foundation has an interesting smell, however it is definately medium - high coverage. It didn't break me out but I feel like it is quite heavy for everyday. Would look beautiful for events or special occasions.
  29. Good coverage and long lasting

    Nicole

    I have normal to dry skin and this foundation doesn’t show any of my dry patches, doesn’t feel cakey or heavy on my face while having a good medium to full coverage and lasts throughout the day. Great for everyday wear since it feels like I’m not wearing anything
  30. Coverage +++

    Frances

    Gives the most amazing finish to the skin if you're after a FULL coverage, but to me it smells slightly like wet paint (not that it's a bother for me!) and definitely needs to be set down - recommend the Mineralise Skin Finish powders from MAC to do this.
  31. Holy grail

    Kimberley

    The best foundation! Long lasting and a great price! Perfect shades to match both my pale skin and tanned skin
  32. My go to

    Kayla

    I’ve tried a lot of high end foundations but this is the one I always go back to. Not only is it one of the only ones that perfectly match my pale skin, but it applies nicely and doesn’t look cakey at all! A little bit goes a long way! I have a lot of freckles and it doesn’t cover them all, but it does a good job covering any pimples and discolouration.
  33. Amazing

    Maddison

    Amazing med/full coverage, bottle lasts for what I thought was forever, really good consistency to apply to the face with a beauty blender, happy with the price. You get what you pay for
  34. Perfect

    Aline

    It does not mark the expression lines, has medium coverage, leaves the skin looking natural. She is great for hot days.
  35. Oily skin Bff

    LOUISE

    Great foundation for oily skin types, long lasting and flawless finish.
  36. One of the best

    Kaitlyn

    Always been a great foundation lasts a long time and doesn't look cakey!
  37. All day wear

    Laura

    I love this makeup is great for coverage and easy to build up if you want full coverage.
    this product last 24 hours!
  38. Old Faithful!

    Sophie

    Been using studio fix on and off for about 10 years now and it never disappoints. I do prefer to use this for low to medium coverage as I find my shine does come through later in the day/night if I cake it on. In saying that is certainly is a full coverage foundation.
    Great range of shades available and mixes well if you need to lighten or darken the shade you have by adding another foundation to it.
  39. Best foundation

    Kristy

    This foundation has amazing staying power. I do use a primer and setting spray but the coverage I get from this formula is amazing. Mac are amazing because this foundation has so many shades to suit all skin tones. The only flaw is the bottle. I was wasting a lot of product until I purchased Mac's foundation pump that screws onto this foundations bottle top, ensuring no more wastage!
  40. A classic

    Kaitlyn

    Always been and always will be a great foundation
  41. Back in love with this foundation

    Ms Z

    I haven’t used Mac foundation for years and recently went into a Mac store for a sample, i completely fell In love again so I decided to buy it here at adore beauty. I get so many compliments and the colour NC20 is spot on is medium to full and last all day.
  42. Great Coverage

    Hoang

    I’ve been using this foundation for over a year now and it’s the only foundation that works correctly with my skin and it give great coverage. Would highly recommended!
  43. Favourite Foundation

    Radha

    This foundation glides on smooth.Is not cakey at all. Lasts all day with no touch ups necessary as long as you use a setting powder. SPF 15 is a plus! Love the wide variety of skin tones, since my skin is dark and hard to find a proper colour match in liquid foundation.
  44. Beautiful finish but lacks staying power

    Melissa

    I purchased this after reading such great reviews and whilst this foundation looks beautiful freshly applied, I found it didn't last all day even with a primer and a finishing powder.
  45. Great Foundation

    Allyce

    I have used this for years and have always loved it. This provides a good build-able coverage and does not clog up my skin, stays put and needs little attention throughout the day.
  46. Mac

    emily-rose

    MAC Studio Fix is criminally underrated, in my opinion. It's marketed as a full coverage, matte foundation, but can be used in a variety of ways. It can be sheered out or build up without affecting performance. It is more of a natural, satin-matte finish which looks like skin, and works even on my dry skin. It doesn't look like you are wearing a cakey mask, unlike so many other full coverage foundations.
  47. Good

    M

    Studio Fix is a good foundation. Not my favourite, since it does separate a little on my skin after a few hours but it does look amazing when first applied.
  48. Great product, great range of tones

    Shelley

    I’ve been a dedicated MAC user for ten years. Studio Fix liquid glides on though it works better with a primer underneath, and you need less product that way. I am of African descent so it’s nice to find a foundation in the right shade that does not make me look ashy. I have oily skin and I find that this foundation works better with a matching setting power applied over my T zone
  49. Old favourite

    JC

    Recently started using this foundation again after a long break. I don’t know why I ever stopped! It blends beautifully, has fantastic coverage and controls my oily skin. Love it!
  50. Not great on dry skin

    Megan

    This used to be my go to, then my skin changed dramatically. It's super dry now, so I definitely don't recommend it for those with dry skin. But if your skin is normal/combination it's definitely worth trying!
  51. great for every day

    aron

    Great every day foundation, definitely need a primer with it otherwise it sticks to any dry patches and separates in oily patches. I use the Mac skin base visage and it works a treat. long wearing too
  52. Only foundation I use!

    Lucy

    Blends into my skin and builds up to a nice full coverage which I love because its hides my freckles!
  53. Yes and no

    Tamara

    I got a sample of this, and when I first put it on I thought it was beautiful! It looked great, airbrushed! But, unfortunately after being on my face for a while it ends up showing me dry patches I didn’t even know I had, which is so weird! I just have to keep experimenting with it, but it always does the same thing. Really dries me out and my skin is normal to dry, so if you’re oily I reckon you’ll love this! Coverage is awesome.
  54. holy grail foundation

    bayden

    This foundation is the holy grail of foundations! blends beautifully into my skin and doesnt rub off during the day.
  55. Nice for when I forget sunscreen

    Bayden

    I know it’s not meant to replace sunscreen but it really does help protect my skin when I’m not wearing sunscreen. It’s also a very nice foundation that evens out my skin
  56. Good foundation

    Regina Fuentes

    If you’re a fan of matte foundation, this would definitely be the foundation for you! I gave it 4 stars because although this foundation is bomb, I prefer Mac’s Pro Longwear Foundation
  57. Amazing!

    Shaquila

    I have been through so many brands of foundation to find my 'right' one. I got married not too long ago, and my makeup artist had used M.a.c for my foundation and it looked and felt amazing, it didn't sink or clog my pores. I also have hormonal acne, this foundation did not cause flare ups it actually calmed the redness.
  58. Have been using this for years wouldnt use anything else

    Melissa

    I have tried other foundations but nothing compares to mac studio fix fluid the coverage is natural and feels great on the skin it is easy to blend and long lasting
  59. Great for every skin type

    Krystal

    I have used this foundation for years now and love it! It stays put throughout the day but I do find you need to be careful as it can get cakey quite easily.
  60. Great Coverage

    Nicole

    Love this foundation, covers so well! Would definitely recommend!
  61. It delivers

    olivia

    Great shade range and great buildable coverage. I do find it looks a bit heavy if I follow on with the studio powder so be sure to use the fix plus setting spray. I could imagine this foundation would suit pretty much all skin types.
  62. Must Buy Foundation!!!

    Brittany

    If you're looking for medium to full coverage I would definitely recommend buying this foundation! It blends really nicely into the skin and leaves a really beautiful matte finish. Also love knowing that it has SPF in it.
  63. Great shade range

    Rachel

    I love mac foundations for their shade range! I'm very pale and find it hard to buy foundation. The product goes on beautifully and lasts fairly well on my dehdrayted skin
  64. Natural, not cakey

    Ess

    My most favourite foundation. It soaks and blends with my skin perfectly and creates a natural finish, not cakey at all.
  65. too oily for me

    Brittany

    Unfortunately leaves my skin really oily
    Also makes me break out prone skin breakout
    wanted to like it but unfortunately due to my skin type just wasn't for me
  66. HOLY GRAIL

    sabine

    This was one of the first foundations i ever tried and dont think i would ever look back! I've been using it for 3 years now and with the correct skin preparation this looks flawless. Would definitely recommend if you desired full coverage and long wear with combo skin
  67. So good

    Abbey

    This is an all time favourite foundation. Has perfect coverage. Love it so much
  68. My go to

    Freya

    I've been using this foundation in shade NW13 for years. I have pale skin and freckles and love the full coverage.
  69. My fave foundation

    monnette

    I love this foundation! It’s my usual foundation, that doesn’t disappoint. My colour has been matched by MAC makeup artists and I often receive compliments on how ‘natural’ my makeup is - some people are often surprised to learn I'm wearing any foundation!
    Love that it’s long-lasting, has excellent coverage and doesn’t really break the bank!
  70. Perfect coverage

    SassC

    Applies really well with perfect coverage. No clumps or streaks. I use a good quality sponge to apply it and it gives me a flawless finish. Not too matte, not too shiny. Powders sit on top perfectly. Have been using for 10yrs at least, probably 10 more!
  71. Fantastic my number 1 foundation

    Nicole

    Fantastic! Studio fix has the perfect amount of coverage without being cakey. If you use it with prep and prime it glides on for a flawless finish
  72. Great for younger skin

    Selina

    I used to love this foundation when I was younger. It stays all day and held up well in the Singapore year when I used to live there. I do feel like I prefer a lighter weight foundation nowadays, but will still used this for special occasions.
  73. Favourite foundation

    Amy

    I had been using Double Wear for years, but wanted to try something different as my skin was changing as I was getting older. Honestly I’m so happy I did try something different, as this foundation covers everything up for me! It lasts me all day without having to touch up i.e., 12 hours at least. It covers up my acne scars from my hormonal acne which I have found to be the biggest concern skin wise for me as of the last couple of years. I will continue purchasing and will recommend this foundation to anyone looking for a full coverage that doesn’t feel too heavy against the skin.
  74. LOVE

    Tarran

    My go to foundation. Not too heavy but gives the perfect coverage!
  75. Great foundation

    Michelle

    This foundation is a great go to. Very buildable and looks good in photos. Some shades can be a bit yellow so best to test out in store before purchasing, but that goes without saying!
  76. This is my favourite everyday foundation

    Hollie

    This is my favourite foundation, I started using it 6 months ago and I use it everyday. I use C4 shade and find this foundation to be smooth and gives you a good coverage, works best when applying with a buffer foundation brush. I always have one as a back up ready to go when I run out.
  77. excellent

    Laura

    this foundation is amazing! It blends so easily and leaves a flawless look on my skin! The coverage is perfect and it is so lightweight! I definitely recommend!

  79. Great coverage

    Cassidy

    Amazing coverage and blends well!! Defiantly use for more of a going out night time look as it is heavy.
  80. Great coverage

    R.A

    This is my go-to night time foundation as it provides me with excellent coverage and doesn't give me any flashback in photos. It can look a little cakey when applied with a brush so I would recommend using a beauty blender.
  81. Annoying packaging

    Molly

    Whilst this is a great foundation I have lived in the past, the packaging isn’t ideal. Being glass there’s no way you’re ever going to get the last drops out and I find it pretty wasteful, especially when you’ve spent so much money on the product and don’t get to use it all!
    There is a separate pump you can buy which I recommend, but it still won’t help you get every last drop.
  82. Excellent coverage

    jay23

    Super great coverage! Because of that, just dont think its lightweight on your skin.
  83. its my fav

    Iz

    this is my favourite foundation and I wear it every day
  84. Great product for dry and sensitive skin!

    Robyn

    I purchased this on a recommendation, I have very pale skin which is very dry and sensitive. I got a sample to try out at a local mac store first and loved it so decided to invest in the bigger bottle. So far this is my go to foundation, best applied with a beauty blender for dry skin types. It doesn't cake or cause break outs. My only wish is it came in a lighter shade but for now it is a staple in my make up bag.
  85. Great Medium to Heavy Coverage

    Callyn

    I’ve used this foundation for years. I personally think it is better to wear at night as it is reasonably heavy but it looks good in photos. I find that it can look cakey if the skin is dry but about 15-30 mins after putting it on it sits much more nicely as if ‘melts’ in. It is a great going out foundation!
  86. Closest match I've found & easy to apply

    Emily

    I've been using this foundation in NW10 for about 5 years, and for the most part I really like it, I just find that sometimes it oxidises on my skin and becomes a little too pink for me. Despite this, I keep using it because the colour is the closest match out of any foundation I've tried and the formula works really well with my skin, and is easy to apply and blend. Overall I'm really happy with this foundation.
  87. Too oily for me

    Lara

    I used this for a long time and it goes on really nicely, I also find the shades match both my summer and winter complexion, but for my oily skin it leaves me too oily by the end of the day but is perfect for those dryer girls.
  88. The Best!

    BivaDiva

    My go to foundation, perfect coverage without the heaviness of full cover.
  89. Awesome

    Lara

    this foundaton prevents my skin from getting easily burnt because my skin is over sensitive
  90. Amazing

    Mia

    This is so good it is the perfect coverage but feels so lightweight on my skin so blendable as well worth getting!!
  91. All time favourite

    Kathleen

    This is my go to foundation I’m in love! It’s nice and creamy and stays on all day!
  92. One of my favs!

    Liz

    Absolutely LOVE the coverage of this foundation. You don't need to use a huge amount and it provide flawless coverage - long lasting wear, doesnt get much better.
  93. Amazing

    michelle

    I love how this foundation has spf in it. I don’t get sunburnt. Doesn’t make my oily skin feel congested. Very light but fully coverage
  94. Flawless

    PRB

    I love everything about this foundation. It gives flawless full coverage, especially if you apply with a brush (I typically apply with a damp beauty blender). I can wear this foundation for 15 hours, and it still looks flawless!
  95. ok

    Mags

    Although this foundation blends beautifully with a sponge, I like using my fingers as the foundation lasts longer. It didn't blend very well with the fingers and wasn't smooth on my face. Coverage was excellent and it did last the whole day but I won't be buying this foundation again.
  96. One of my long time favourite foundations

    renee

    I have been using Studio Fix for over a decade. It’s any go to foundation, it has very good coverage with a matte finish. There are so many shades to suit any skin tones. I have oily skin and this product lasts the entire day. Would recommend for a medium-heavy coverage foundation.
  97. You can’t get better.

    Shell

    This is my go to foundation. It’s the foundation I get compliments on. It last all long, great medium to full coverage, blends great on skin and last all day. Definitely the foundation I love.
  98. Great coverage!

    Kimberley

    Gives a great coverage without being too thick on the skin! I have a normal/oily skin and can find my skin looks a little oily by the end of the day but other than that it gives off a nice dewy finish!
