Good but not for a natural look
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.

Good coverage and long lastingI 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
Coverage +++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.
Holy grailThe best foundation! Long lasting and a great price! Perfect shades to match both my pale skin and tanned skin
My go toI’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.
AmazingAmazing 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
PerfectIt does not mark the expression lines, has medium coverage, leaves the skin looking natural. She is great for hot days.
Oily skin BffGreat foundation for oily skin types, long lasting and flawless finish.
One of the bestAlways been a great foundation lasts a long time and doesn't look cakey!
All day wearI love this makeup is great for coverage and easy to build up if you want full coverage.
this product last 24 hours!
Old Faithful!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.
Best foundationThis 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!
A classicAlways been and always will be a great foundation
Back in love with this foundationI 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.
Great CoverageI’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!
Favourite FoundationThis 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.
Beautiful finish but lacks staying powerI 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.
Great FoundationI 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.
MacMAC 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.
GoodStudio 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.
Great product, great range of tonesI’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
Old favouriteRecently 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!
Not great on dry skinThis 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!
great for every dayGreat 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
Only foundation I use!Blends into my skin and builds up to a nice full coverage which I love because its hides my freckles!
Yes and noI 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.
holy grail foundationThis foundation is the holy grail of foundations! blends beautifully into my skin and doesnt rub off during the day.
Nice for when I forget sunscreenI 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
Good foundationIf 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
Amazing!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.
Have been using this for years wouldnt use anything elseI 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
Great for every skin typeI 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.
Great CoverageLove this foundation, covers so well! Would definitely recommend!
It deliversGreat 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.
Must Buy Foundation!!!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.
Great shade rangeI 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
Natural, not cakeyMy most favourite foundation. It soaks and blends with my skin perfectly and creates a natural finish, not cakey at all.
too oily for meUnfortunately 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
HOLY GRAILThis 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
So goodThis is an all time favourite foundation. Has perfect coverage. Love it so much
My go toI've been using this foundation in shade NW13 for years. I have pale skin and freckles and love the full coverage.
My fave foundationI 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!
Perfect coverageApplies 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!
Fantastic my number 1 foundationFantastic! 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
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.
Favourite foundationI 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.
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!
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!
