Good coverage

AB

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.

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. Alright

    Brucey

    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.
  3. great formula

    laura

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

    Ann

    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
  5. Far too heavy

    MK

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

    Taeylor

    verified purchaser
    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.
  7. Great!

    Mandy

    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.
  8. Great coverage!

    Ren

    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.
  9. Wow coverage

    Ceici

    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
  10. Amazing

    T

    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.
  11. Great full coverage foundation

    JV

    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 .
  12. Good Coverage

    Alex

    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...

  13. pretty good

    nah

    Ive use a lot of didn't foundation through out my life and I've got to say this is probably in top 5 foundations. It has a medium to full, buildable coverage. Has a matte-finish and also minimises the appearance of pores and imperfections. Long-wearing
  14. great but not fantastic

    kish

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

    Chele Pagno

    This foundation is quite heavy on my skin. I din't like much.
  16. My fav foundation

    Vicky

    This is a fairly old foundation but it still beats a lot of the newer foundations on the market. There is a very slight smell to it but does not have any added fragrance so the smell isn't annoying. Foundation applies beautifully and stays flawless throughout the day. My shade is N5 and I use this every day
  17. Using for 14 years!

    Peta

    I have been using this product since I was 15 and have not found a better foundation. Keep in mind that this foundation has quite a full coverage as I use it for things like dates, events, etc or if I just want to feel/look really good.
  18. WOW

    Sabellah

    I absolutely love this foundation, perfect for a light day coverage or a heavier evening coverage! Perfect if you just want to buy one foundation for every occasion.
  19. One of the best

    Sadh

    It gives such a flawless coverage and worked extremely well for my sensitive skin.
  20. Alright

    D

    I really wanted to love this but it's not that good for my dry skin. Makes my makeup seem very dry. It's a good color match though.
  21. Good foundation but...

    E.R.

    This is a nice foundation, very blendable and looks natural on the skin, but it oxidises and looks slightly too orange on my fair, cool-toned skin. It also feels a little heavier on my skin than other foundations. The coverage is good, it's easily buildable to fuller coverage.
  22. Not a friend of acne

    Not good for oily skin

    If you have acne and oily skin i wouldnt recommend this as it makes your skin more oily and i found that it would break me out more and make my skin really itchy
  23. Great

    Ann

    This is full coverage and lasts all day. Love the finish too
  24. really full coverage

    Luci

    I like this makeup but it is very heavy so I wouldn't recommend this to someone looking for a natural look
  25. Full coverage foundation

    Mandstar87

    This is the most full coverage foundation I have ever tried, and I have used a lot! That is not a bad thing, it just depends on what look you prefer.

    I used to love the matte, full coverage look, but have since moved to a more satin finish. So this is no longer for me, however would still recommend it to anyone looking for a full coverage, matte finish.
  26. Heavy and drying

    Angie

    This foundation is heavy and provides a high level of coverage. It comes in a vast array of shades. Sadly, It is very thick, drying and cakey. Despite several different measures to counteract the dryness, this foundation left me looking at least a decade older with terrible skin. Probably a better choice for younger people and not for those aged 40+
  27. Great foundation

    Ella

    I have combination/oily skin and this controls my shine and is super long lasting. Also a great shade selection, I have very pale yet yellow undertoned skin and the NC shades are awesome for me. My only thing I dislike is I do find it can clog up my skin a bit and I can't use it daily. But I love it for a nightout, a long day, or a day I really need to make sure my makeup isn't going anywhere such...

  28. Perfect for nights out!

    AP

    Great coverage, feels good on your skin (doesn't sink into fine lines) and gives a beautiful soft, flawless finish. I wouldn't wear it every day as it is a bit heavy, but it's perfect for nights out and events!
  29. Such a classic foundation!

    Moni.B

    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. They also have so many shades and undertones available.
    I hate that the pump has to be bought separately though :(

  31. Full coverage and lasts all day - go to foundation

    Rachel

    This is full coverage, sweat and heat proof but is quite heavy. I wear it when I'm going out, but it's too heavy for every day boring work makeup and if you have problematic skin it may not be helpful, but as a party, all day, foundation its amazing.
  32. Does the job!

    Tee

    This foundation works so well with my skin, it's coverage is great and makes my skin complexion look even.
  33. thick foundation

    kthln

    This was my first foundation that i fell in love with! very good coverage and stays on all day! doesn't leave creasing in the fined lined area!
  34. New party foundation

    Luci

    seriously happy with this foundation. I just went away on a party trip and this stuff made my face look so even and stayed on all day and night. I liked that you could still see my freckles with it! Do yourself a favour and get onto this foundation. You will not regret it
  35. Dewy

    KJ

    Love this foundation, it’s dewy and has a plumping effect on my skin. Doesn’t clog my pores. I wear it all day at work and it stays/ sits nice on my skin
  36. Light

    E

    Super lightweight on my skin but gives amazing coverage, perfect for summer time!
  37. Great full coverage foundation!

    Madeleine

    I’ve used this for years and love it - great full coverage foundation which has longevity! Use it all of the time for events, etc on weekends and mix a tiny bit in with a lighter foundation for every day use. Will continue to buy as I can’t go without it!
  38. Just great!

    Camila

    This foundation is very good! and the best thing is that it has spf! It has a good ability to cover imperfections without feeling heavy on the skin. The other thing I like is that it lets the skin breathe and sweat without its effect disappearing.
  39. Versatile

    Jen

    The spf makes it great for an everyday foundation but can also be full enough for night out
  40. Do not use if you have dry skin

    Olivia

    I have fairly dry skin so this foundation was not the best option for me. It's definitely best suited for those with oily skin. It went patchy pretty quickly and the colour changed quickly also. Also not a fan of the smell of it.
  41. Great coverage

    Kate

    I have combination skin and have found this suitable. For the coverage, it is definitely worth the price. Doesn't feel cakey or dry, nor oxidise.
  42. Best Foundation

    Banana

    Been using this for years now. I’ve tried so many foundations and nothing compares to this. Perfect for someone wanting full coverage
  43. A girls best friend

    Maddi

    This is by far my favourite foundation for my skin, it covers perfectly. It doesn't make my skin feel caked, it feels smooth and evens out. Definitely would recommend
  44. Couldn't find my shade

    Mandy

    I have fair skin and couldn't get a proper shade to match. NC is too yellow and N is too pink. Otherwise, the foundation is very good. Has great coverage and keeps the oil at bay (I have oily skin). Staying powder is fantastic too. I wouldn't use it very day though as it is very heavy.
  45. My Holy Grail foundation for oily, blemish prone skin

    Jo

    First off, I have used this foundation since I was 16 - and I am now 25. I've tried many other foundations in a similar price point to MAC (Too Faced, Smashbox, NARS) but I keep coming back to this. For reference. my shade is NC44 - it can be quite difficult to find a medium to high coverage foundation for darker skin that doesn't oxidise into an unsightly orange, but this never has.

  46. 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.
  47. 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.
  48. 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.
  49. 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.
  50. 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.
  51. 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.
  52. 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
  53. Holy Grail

    I always come back to this foundation even with dry skin! Looks lovely mixed with some Mac strobe cream
  54. 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!

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

    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.

    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 b...

I do find it can cling to dry patches but if i mosturise first thats not a problem! 100% recomend!

I'm really happy with this foundation, which is easily applied (I'm using a beauty blender) and has good stayi...

  66. 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.

  71. 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 ...

    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.
  73. 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.
  74. 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
  75. 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.
  76. Holy grail

    Kimberley

    The best foundation! Long lasting and a great price! Perfect shades to match both my pale skin and tanned skin
  77. 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.

    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!

    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.
  89. 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.

  91. 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 found...

    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.
  93. 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

    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!
  96. 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

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’...
