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.

This foundation gets darker with time so I’d recommend going a shade or two lighter! Great coverage and easy to blend however.
Great for younger skinI 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.

LOVEMy go to foundation. Not too heavy but gives the perfect coverage!
Great foundationThis 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!
This is my favourite everyday foundationThis 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.
excellentthis 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!

Great coverageAmazing coverage and blends well!! Defiantly use for more of a going out night time look as it is heavy.
Great coverageThis 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.
Annoying packagingWhilst 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.
Excellent coverageSuper great coverage! Because of that, just dont think its lightweight on your skin.
its my favthis is my favourite foundation and I wear it every day
Great product for dry and sensitive skin!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.
Great Medium to Heavy CoverageI’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!
Closest match I've found & easy to applyI'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.
Too oily for meI 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.
The Best!My go to foundation, perfect coverage without the heaviness of full cover.
Awesomethis foundaton prevents my skin from getting easily burnt because my skin is over sensitive
AmazingThis is so good it is the perfect coverage but feels so lightweight on my skin so blendable as well worth getting!!
All time favouriteThis is my go to foundation I’m in love! It’s nice and creamy and stays on all day!
One of my favs!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.
AmazingI 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
FlawlessI 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!
okAlthough 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.
One of my long time favourite foundationsI 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.
excellentgreat coverage and so blendable
You can’t get better.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.
Great coverage!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!
excellentsuch a good foundation perfect coverage
One of the best!This is my no fail - go to foundation. Always looks great, buildable and gives you a flawless look. I find however if i leave any of it on my skin overnight i will instantly break out. It is a very heavy foundation but it will never fail to make you look great. There is also a massive shade range so you will always be able to colour match.
honestly think im the only one who hates this?acne prone, oily, sensitive skin. this foundation is my worst enemy. if i have to wear this as a bridesmaid my soul cries for me.
colours are SO off on me.. either way too pink or extremely yellow like a simpson. BREAKS ME OUT LIKE NO TOMORROW and i mean under the skin extremely sore pimples that once lasted 3 weeks and left a hideous scar on my cheek for ages. if i have to get my makeup done by a MUA for an occassion the first thing i ask them is if they use mac and can they use ANYTHING else
Really nice foundation, grew up wearing itAmazing foundation if you're on the oily side! It made my skin look perfect. Make sure you choose the right colour as it does oxidise a little throughout the day (I am very pale so chose NC15).
Poreless Perfection!!I looove this foundation! Constantly getting compliments on how good it looks on my skin!! I pair it with a Mac primer for smooth coverage! Look great whether you use a brush, sponge or just your hands and stays perfect for hours.
Lovely for a special event or a night outI love this foundation. I have used this as an everyday foundation and also just for special events. It is quite a long lasting foundation which I love but I have found if using every day you will need to invest in a good cleanser/ exfoliater as it can be quite heavy on my skin. Works great with the soft and gentle illuminator from the MAC range also. I always get lots of comments on my make up since using this product. Highly recommend!
Changes colourThis foundation gets darker with time so I’d recommend going a shade or two lighter! Great coverage and easy to blend however.
AmazingThis is my favourite foundation! 10/10 would recommend!
Beautiful fresh looking skinI have been using Studio Fix for years now. It’s a staple in my collection and I always fall back on it. It provides great coverage and has a ‘skin-like’ finish.
Lasts All NightSuper full coverage, i use every night out and come home with my makeup still looking flawless
My new holy grailI finally jumped on the bandwagon and tried this foundation and my only regret is not trying it sooner! I have used Estee Lauder double wear for years as it is full coverage and lasts on my oily skin but this foundation is soo much nicer. It doesn't feel as heavy and cakey as double wear and is easily buildable to be full coverage. It covers my pores and. makes my skin look so flawless. Definitely my new holy grail
Best full coverage foundationThis was one of the first ever foundations I tried and I always find myself going back to it. I love a full coverage foundation and this one makes your skin look flawless, without looking too cakey, and stays on all night. I have several different shades of this foundation and love them all.
Great for oily skin and FULL coverage, longwearing baseI used to be absolutely in love with this foundation, it was perfect for oily skin. I wore it in high school during up to 10 hour days, and it would look completely FLAWLESS at the end of the day, maybe even better than when I first applied it. In fact, I often didn't really want to remove my makeup because it looked SO GOOD!! That being said, my skin has become drier, and I now prefer a more dewy, natural, lighter coverage finish, so this foundation just hasn't been my favourite lately. I think that with drier skin, it can tend to look cakier more easily, due to it being a thicker consistency, which is what makes it so great for oily skin. So, I think it's PHENOMENAL for oily skin and for a full coverage, "photoshopped" base, which lasts a ridiculously long time, but I have/don't really want any of that currently.
My go-to for full coverageThis is my favourite foundation for full coverage! I've been using it for years, and keep going back for more each time I run out. It's great for people like me, who like full coverage foundation and don't love to use lots of products to achieve it. Works best with the powder.
I keep going back.For me, Studio Fix Fluid is an essential in my makeup cupboard. I love that I can build this product for a fuller coverage or wear it lightly. For even lighter coverage I can mix it with my moisturizer and it will sit nicely. This product is will warm up in tone once applied to my skin, which was a bit of a surprise when I first started using it, but I'm use to it now. Sometimes there will be a day or two in my cycle where my skin is slightly oilier and it shows with this foundation. However, overall, this is my number one foundation, and I've tried share.
LovelySuch a good foundation, perfect coverage and such a light weight feel
Love this foundationBlends easy. Coverage can be built up. Great texture. Good colour range. Love it so much
Fave foundation!Have tried lots of foundation but this is hands down my fave. Great coverage and never blocks my pores
love this stuffmakeup artist used this on me and i had to go and purchase for myself! it gives the skin a flawless, airbrushed look and has shades to suit every skin colour and undertone.
Perfect coverageI have a combination skin and it is hard to find foundation that suits my skin. I have tried every high end products. This is by far the best foundation. Just repurchased second bottle. I also use the MAC fix and prime in coconut before applying this foundation. Works well for me.
Perfect every day foundation.This is my go to every day foundation and I love it. I am very pale (NC13) and am thankful MAC have introduced the lighter shades. If I’ve applied fake tan, it’s easy to add a darker shade to match your skin tone. This foundation is very versatile, is buildable for a lighter/heavier coverage and has sat well on top of non MAC primers.
LOVEThis foundation makes my bumpy, acne prone skin look flawless. If that doesn't deserve 5 stars, I don't know what does..
Lovely foundationI like this foundation a lot. I have a lot of acne scarring and this does a good job at covering up the red pigmentation on my skin, without me needing to cake on concealer as well. I do find that after about 4 or 5 hours it can sometimes slide off my forehead a bit if I don’t use a setting powder.
Airbrushed FinishLove this foundation, have used it for years. It’s great for oily skin (like mine) and if you want full coverage. Covers all my imperfections whilst still maintaining a natural look. Only slight snag is if you don’t wear primer underneath it does easily come off during the day, but won’t budge with any primer. Love it!
Best Foundation!I have been using this foundation for a long time and will keep using it. I find the colour is very natural on me ( nc20) and the finish is matte and stays that way the whole day. Even in winter, it does not dry out my skin. I like that it's medium coverage so it will still cover most imperfections. I use it with the Mineralize finish powder for a smooth beautiful finish. Highly recommended!
Love itVery full coverage, I usually break out from foundations like this but this really worked for me! Great brand!
Colour matching!N4-fn is an incredible colour match for my difficult skin tone. I am very fair and a lot of foundations oxidise and go yellow or highlight my redness. Texture wise it’s not the best out there - this is fixed with primer and a good foundation brush (a dense short bristle works best). Also setting spray is a must for me or it transfers easily. As long as you’re willing to put in the effort this is a great option.
Best full coverage foundationI adore this foundation because it has staying power and is full coverage. It doesn't make my skin oily and has a lovely matte finish. I do use a good primer and I think I'm on my fourth bottle now. I did buy the Mac foundation pump though because I was finding that I was wasting a lot of product without it. Sometimes I find that t can be a tad heavy for Sumer do I switch to Mac's Water weight. PLus there are so many shades, you can't go wrong!
one of my favourites!This has been one of my go to foundations over the years. The coverage is really nice but still feels really light, not overly full coverage or heavy. It applies really well and blends great, you can really build it up depending how much coverage you like. Pairs with the studio fix powder really well.
Always I come back to this FoundationI have been using this for over ten years. Every now and then I stray and try something else but I always return to this product. It covers, blends and builds coverage easily and stays put. Worth the cost everytime.
Good full coverage foundationI do really like this foundation, the shade range is not quite perfect for me however. The first time I tried it was the week before my wedding (terrible decision) and it broke me out but I was a lot more prone to break outs at the time. I recently found a bottle hidden away and tried it again now that I'm in my 30s and rarely break out and it was fine, no breakouts. AND the bottle was 5 years old and was still very useable.
Great coverage however I don't like ti applied with a brush, beauty blender all the way.
Love this makeup!This makeup is amazing if you like to wear a thicker liquid, it makes my skin look amazing and stays on all day!
FantasticThis is a.suburb foundation, applies really well, buildable coverage, I have combination skin and works really well on both dry and oily skin types. Super affordable price and lasts me ages too!
A+ FoundationThis has got to be the best foundation I have used. I always get compliments when I wear it, as it makes my skin look flawless.
This foundation provides the perfect coverage (which is buildable) and prevents that afternoon shine.
I also love MACs shade range.
Definitely an A+ for this product.
Didn’t suit meI found this foundation way too thick and full coverage for my liking with a matte powdery finish. I also really disliked the smell. It would be great for a night out where you really wanted that full on makeup look, but for everyday I found this too heavy
Obsessed!!!A great foundation and a great colour range! I have a normal/oily skin type and i love that this foundation doesnt break out my skin.
good colour matchits always a hit and miss with this foundation, sometimes I love it and other time I'm not the biggest fan.. I guess it all depends on the climate you are wearing it in and also how you apply it, can feel heavy however.
BEST FOUNDATION EVERThis is hands down my favourite foundaiton and I have tried many! I have dry skin so this works great!! and it has buildable coverage, i use one layer during the day and 2 layers to get full coverage at night. Love this!!
Looks so goodThis foundation makes my skin look so airbrushed and perfect. The shade range is amazing and the application is easy if the skin is well primed. Unfortunately, it broke me out really bad and that was the end of it for me. Such a shame as it looks so freaking good on the skin :(
LoveHas the nicest finish, and lasts all day, cannot fault
The perfect foundation!I have been using this foundation for years and it's always been perfect for me.
It's got excellent coverage and can easily be built up for even more coverage. It can be used sparingly to cover redness or marks with a powder - it will created a nice soft look. I sometimes blend in with a little moisturiser to help smooth the foundation across my face when using to create a light, daytime look,
It's smooth and easy to apply. I use a brush to give a flawless look, but can also be applied using fingers as well.
Comes in lots of shades - sometimes I find as you go into summer that a new shade needs to be bought, but because they aren't too far from each other they are easy to match.
Recommend!!I have combination skin and slightly oily through the t-zone. This product has more a more matte finish so wears well throughout the day. Coverage is medium to buildable
Good coverage foundationI like this foundation. I use to use it as my everyday go to but have since changed to NARS sheer glow. This is a nice buildable coverage and doesn’t look cakey or orange on the skin.
Great Foundation, Excellent CoverageThis foundation provides a natural coverage that lasts all day. The shade range is amazing and it's one of the reasons why I love it.
I prefer this foundation over Estee Lauder Double Wear. Highly Recommend.
Great for full coverage!I’ve used this foundation for years now. I suffer from that 2pm shine and this really helps cover the oily t zone and is really full coverage. I am very freckley over the summer months and this really does the trick to fade them.
Good if you like full coverageLove it for a day of full faced makeup, can be quite heavy for day to day wear! It isn’t my go to as I find I don’t need all that much coverage everyday but otherwise it’s quite good!
Go to foundationI absolutely love this foundation for myself and my clients! Its a must have in any makeup artist Kit!
This is ‘the one!’After trying studio sculpt and the liquid mineral foundation, this is by far the best.
It has amazing coverage and somehow makes your skin just look better.
I was cautious as I had read it was really heavy. This is not the case. I have combination skin.
The foundation feels much lighter when compared to sculpt.
Will be buying forever!
OkI have used NC10 and NC15. The NC10 is a great colour for pale people however drying, I think it really highlighted my fine lines and I barely have any. As for NC15, I used it for years and was happy, it’s not as drying as NC10 but not the best foundation out there. Neither seem to have the stay power.
My GO TO foundation!LOVE this foundation. i will never not have this in my kit. It is smooth and not too heavy, it has build able coverage so you can control how much you want to cover. I find it works and almost all skin types and doesn't oxidise too much. Tip: Best applied with a sponge!
Holy GrailI have been using this foundation for years now, I do wish it wasn't so expensive but the bottle does last 6 months so I can justify the cost. I recommend buying the pump for it and dont forget to return your bottle to mac for a free lipstick.
Ye Old FaithfulI oftentimes try and stray from Studio Fix, and like clockwork find myself back in it's arms after trialling something else. I love the coverage, matte finish and overall look that Studio Fix provides. I regularly get compliments on my complexion, and owe it to Studio Fix. Would strongly recommend this product to anyone looking to try a medium coverage foundation.
Full coverage but natural-lookingI really like this for a full coverage base when I want my base to look natural. There is a slight paint smell to the foundation, but you can't notice it once it's on the face.
My go to foundationSeem can’t use any other... have in 4 shades now so can match depending how much sun I have had and time of year :)
love M A C
Good coverageGood coverage and long wearing. Nc30 is a yellow based coverage.
A foundation to last the distance!I use this on my clients. It’s a great foundation for medium to full coverage. Sits on the skin so well and there is such a variety of shades for all skin tones. The only thing I could say that doesn’t bother myself personally but may be useful for others to know, is that it does have a fragrance.
Couldn’t live without this foundation!I have combination oily/sensitive skin and I really struggle to find foundation that stays on my skin all day and night but this one is sooo good! I rarely have to touch up, usually just around my nose where my glasses sit but that’s to be expected, and occasionally when it’s really hot and I’ve had it on all day. I work in hospitality and this stuff lasts all night. Super easy to blend and has really good coverage!
only foundation i use!this foundation is amazing, i rarely wear makeup, maybe once every 6 months but when i do i use this! sometimes i find it too thick but thats easily fixed with mixing it with a foundation thats a little more runny (maybeline fit me), always makes my skin look amazing and lasts for hours on end! would highly recommend and looks great over faketan!
Love ItI have tried many many foundations over the years but keep coming back to this one. It actually doesnt feel too thick and heavy on your skin and is buildable which i love! I have combination and bumpy skin and i use this makeup with powder over top. Highly recommend
Good FoundationThis is a decent foundation, most recommend to this with combination to oily skin types.
It's a medium to full coverage with a matte finish.
Downsides include oxidation and being somewhat difficult to wash off.
A great foundation!I do love this foundation. It is very similar to the Estee Lauder Double Wear (which is my all time fave) but it is that little bit cheaper. I do find it is quite heavy coverage so go in with a light hand. The shade range is great!
Great shade range and good for every dayHave really enjoyed using this as my everyday foundation lately after moving away from double wear, I really like it has spf but equally it doesn't react badly to sunscreen underneath or flashback. I do find that to get a good shade match it's best to go instore and swatch on your skin and see how it reacts as I have noticed it does oxidise maybe half a shade with the first 30mins.
My first choiceI have tried many many foundations over the years but keep coming back to this one. It actually doesnt feel too thick and heavy on your skin and is buildable which i love! I have combination and bumpy skin and i use this makeup with powder over top. Highly recommend
Disappointment central!I was so surprised with this foundation, the hype was promising and reviews were great!
So why did I HATE this foundation?! It oxodises so bad, I ended up 2 shades darker, it separates and slides right off the skin and gives so much texture.
Big waste of money unfortunately, I gave it to a friend!
GiftI have purchased this foundation twice now as a gift for a friend who absolutely loves it and swears by it. I personally dont like the smell of the foundation but continue to purchase it as a gift.
Great natural coverageThis was my first MAC foundation and is just so good.
It has a strong chemical/makeup scent but it dissipates quickly, and is much preferable to a sickly artificial fragrance.
I purchase the pump, which makes life so much easier, but it annoys me that this doesn't already come with one and you have to purchase it separately.
But besides those cons, this is an excellent foundation with medium to full coverage and it looks and feels so natural.
It lasts all day with no creasing or breaking down. It just looks like skin. And it feels like there's nothing there.
Highly recommend this!
LOVELove this foundation! One of my all time favourites as it gives a gorgeous flawless finish!
Best foundation ever!!!!!Been using this foundation for almost 4 years now. It gives full coverage and at the same time not cakey on the face. I also love how it has the closest colour to my skin tone. Would recommended 10/10!
So niceI really like this foundation! Medium to fall coverage and gives such a flawless finish! The colours are perfect too
Favourite foundationAs far as foundations go this is one of my favourites.
I have quite pale and struggle to find a foundation that is the right colour so they’re either too pink or yellow base but this is just the right colour.
I find the smell is quite strong if chemicals but I don’t mind it too much because I’m happy with the foundation.
FabulousThis is the best foundation ever! It glides on, doesn't have that cake feel. Lasts all day. I just can't fault it.
