Most Helpful Criticism
Didn’t suit me
I 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

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.

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.
Love Love Love!As far as foundations go - this one has to be the top of my list. It has great coverage that can be built up. It lasts alllll day. It combats my incredibly oily skin better than most other foundations I've tried (and I have tried lots) and the shade range is great. I can rely on this in any situation
Perfect coverageI love the coverage this foundation gives me! It lasts for quite a long time and isn't cakey at all!
Buildable - great colour rangeMAC studio fix fluid has been a staple for years. I have tried others and just keep coming back to it. I am NC30 and I can get the lightest most natural no makeup coverage to full night out glam. Adore this. My only suggestion is buy the pump too!!
Holy grail foundation!This is my absolute favourite foundation! I have normal to oily skin on my t-zone and this foundation keeps me matte and flawless from morning till night! I have it on for about 12 hours a day and it doesn’t wear off. I highly recommend this if you love a full coverage matte look
full coverageGreat foundation that has amazing coverage. I would recommend this products if you are after an excellent liquid foundation that provides excellent full coverage.
Too heavy for regular useProvides excellent coverage but is too thick on. I only feel comfortable wearing this one on the weekend.
New Favourite Foundation!!I have very fair, oily skin and have tried so many different foundations over the years - I am happy to say I have finalyl found one that actually works for me!
Some pros: it covers all of my redness and does not clog my pores (so no break outs), I wear glasses and had no problems with the foundation rubbing off the bridge of my nose all day, this is honestly a first, and it perfectly matches my skin tone - there are so many colour options, it is great!
There are better foundations out there!This foundation just doesn’t do the trick for me. It makes my skin look patchy and oily. Not a great cover either!
Great foundationI love this foundation, I use it daily. It creates a full coverage and flawless look.
Looks cakey sometimesThis is a decent foundation but only looks good when my skin is super duper moisturised. Otherwise it makes me look so dull.
Looks cakey on meI find this foundation to look a bit cakey on my face. It provides excellent coverage and has a smooth finish, it just is a bit thick for my liking. Well priced. Worth a try if you like a heavy foundation.
The only liquid I useI have tried a couple of different brands for their liquids but none mesasure up to this one. Accidentally ordered c3.5 instead of nc30 (use when im tanned) and im soooo happy i did the colour really suits me
Full coverageI have been using this product for over 10 years now and will never change. Love the coverage and the way it works with the powder. Never looks cakey or fake.
Great foundationThis foundation is long lasting and has good coverage. By the end of the day, it slides off any big zits I have, but other than that it’s great.
Flawless!I have always bought dewy foundations since my skin is dry. I thought it would give me the best glow. But this matte foundation gives me naturally flawless looking skin that still has a glow. It is quick to apply and touch ups blend in seamlessly.
MAC AND ADORE!!!!!!THANK YOU FOR MY WONDERFUL MAC PRODUCT AND THANK YOU ADORE!
YESFantastic Product - Goes on easily blends perfectly!
Nice foundationI have quite pale skin with a neutral undertone and this foundation range has the perfect shade for me! It has a medium buildable coverage and it doesn't settle too badly into my smile lines (which is a real issue with most foundations I have tried). Yet to find a foundation that looks better on my skin.
Good overage for daily useI love MAC products. Coverage is light but not too light to be deemed useless and not too heavy to look cakey. I use a brush to apply and then a spongue to even it all out. I have oily skin but this foundation (put on primer) lasts all day for me. I also use Napoleon Perdis camera finish powder to Matt it all out. Have used this product for years..
Great full coverage foundationStudio Fix Fluid foundation is a great medium to full coverage foundation.
I use it in combination with the MAC prep and Prime Skin primer.
Only used 1 and a half pump to cover my entire face. Lasts for a whole day (8 hours) and looks flawless still at the end of the day. It gives a matte finish but does not look caked on skin. Definitely recommend with people with oily to combination skin. Will be purchasing again when finished bottle.
An oldie but a goodie!This foundation is always on rotation in my make up bag, never skips a beat! Holds well all day. Great shade range
Great shade range and coverageThis is a great foundation for medium-full coverage without cakiness. I’m quite pale (shade NC10) and loved that this shade is pretty close to actually being neutral (instead of just pretending to be!). Used with a sponge I could blend this easily to a medium, satin finish. It’s not the most long lasting foundation I’ve ever tried, but it lasts through an average work day.
The best foundationThis is the best foundation I have ever used. I have been using it for years now and am too afraid to switch. I have used other brands in the past and had massive break outs in my skin, but I’ve not had any issues since switching across to MAC.
Long lasting great coverageA long time user of this trusty all day wear full coverage foundation. It smells weird, it’s annoying that you can never get the last drops out of the bottle BUT I keep going back to it because it’s trust worthy and reliable at holding up on in heat, humidity and rain.
My go to!This is my favourite foundation. Left it about 6 years ago and moved on to so many others. Came back because its the ONLY one I can find that is a balance of moisture and long wear but also full coverage.
Long wearProduct stays on all day, nice matte finish, does not clog, and allot of shades to pick from. I used to use Estee Lauder but now Mac is my go to.
Slightly heavyI love this foundation, have been using it for years. I would say this definitely gives full coverage however it can feel slightly heavy, overall I would definitely recommend for any skin type/age.
AmazingI have tried out so many foundations in the past however, they all make me look so dull and ashy. But when I tried out this foundation, it looks amazing on me and I am genuinely in love with this. I have an olive skin tone with a golden peachy undertone and I must say this foundation is the best. I would highly recommend this product.
FavThis is my favourite long wear full cover Foundation, it just wears beautifully for my oily skin. The only con is that it smells like paint but it's not a deal breaker.
Great coverageI have used a lot of foundations and this has been my overall favourite. It doesn't "melt" and is easy to apply. The colour range is great. I'm a light medium and i wear NC20 which is perfect.
Good colour match + coverage for acne-prone skinThe colour match to my skin tone was the main draw for me - seems like there's a shade for a wide range of skin tones. Doesn't seem to cause any breakouts on my acne-prone skin, and covers my acne fairly well (although I may need to use another concealer underneath if I want full coverage). The foundation (with no setting powder) can get quite oily throughout the day, but it always remains on my face without rubbing off.
Full Coverage Long WearingI bought this foundation as a full coverage option to hide pimple marks and pigmentation. And hide them it does! It is super full coverage and I don’t even need to wear concealer when I use this. I also love sheering it out slightly with the strobe cream to give it a kick. I found it to be long wearing and didn’t require any touch ups. I have light to medium skin but always bronze or fake tan my chest and I use NC30. If I wasn’t tanned this would be too dark for me but is perfect when I’m bronzed. It’s not my HG foundation but it’s perfect for when I want to apply and not worry about my makeup sliding off my face during the day!
Great texture and coverageLove this! Goes on quite light and is easily buildable. Definitely buy again
Nice coverageThis gives me a really nice finish and good coverage
Longest lasting foundation ever!I don’t think i’ve ever loved a make up product more than this foundation. Great coverage, lasts all day / night and doesn’t cause breakouts. I have combination skin. :)
Good coverageGreat coverage and doesn’t go oily after a big day. I have combination skin and I find it hard to find a good foundation that accomodates coverage and doesn’t go patchy. Matches well to my skin colour. I use it with the matching powder for a flawless finish.
Great foundation, full coverageThis is a great foundation, really good for wearing all day long and is high coverage. I love the formula but the packaging could be better, you have to bang it on ur hand to get product out.
Long-term user - you choose your coverageI'm a long term user of the studio fix foundation and think the best aspect of it is that you can build up the coverage from very light to heavy depending on what you're going for. the foundation mixes well with moisturisers, blends into the skin and stays on all day - sometimes it can get a little oily as the day goes on but that is all foundations.
Good long wear foundationLoved this foundation always my go to!
Flawless everytime!My holy grail foundation! The finish is perfect on my skin, velvet, matte, and best of all doesn't break me out. Studio fix is fool proof when im having a bad skin day or i have an important event and need my makeup to last all day. Im so impressed by this product!
In love with this foundationThis foundation is amazing, lasts all day while I’m at work in the humidity and hot climate. Great In photos and covers all my pigmentation. Highly recommended for all skin types.
So NiceThe ultimate full coverage foundation! Perfect for special events or when skin's playing up a little, brilliant finish
FantasticWill definitely buy again, lasted all day, great for my dry skin, fantastic in photos. Tried Kat Vin D, nars, Fenty and many others but this one is the absolute best
Long Lasting!Firstly, I love the staying power of this foundation! It is easy to apply and the coverage is builable. It doesn't break out my skin, instead compliments and works well with my skin tone with minimal to no touch ups during the day!
Really goodThis is a really good foundation. Has good coverage and looks really good on the skin
Good productHave been using this foundation for years (recently changed to shade NC20). Nice lightweight foundation and can easy build up for more coverage. However, the product does oxidise so I usually go a shade lighter than what I would do in other foundations.
Staple in my collectionI was first recommended this when I began working in an office where I was wearing makeup on a daily basis. I have oily/combination skin and a lot of foundations I’d used in the past would seperate easily on my skin and wouldn’t last throughout the day. As soon as I purchased this foundation, I knew I’d continue purchasing it. It lasts all day for me without separating, doesn’t settle into my pores or irritate my skin and I’m able to use this on a daily basis. Its been 7 years since I first purchased this and I always have a bottle on my collection.
BEST FOUNDATION!I love this foundation.
I have the c3.5 and 4.
Love it. I have a light complexion, if I’m fake tanned I used the darker shade with a bronzer.
Fantastic all over coverage that lasts all day or all night.
I don’t find it clogs my pores which is great.
Medium coverageSuch a good foundation. Lasts all day. I have normal/ combination skin and this foundation works perfectly. I would highly recommend this foundation.
One of my first and will be one of my lastThe ultimate full coverage foundation! Perfect for special events or when skin's playing up a little. It has a cashmere like feel and sits beautifully on the skin! My skin's dry but this still sits so well - an amazing foundation!
Ultimate full coverage foundationThe ultimate base! Perfect for special events or when skin's playing up a little. It has a cashmere like feel and sits beautifully on the skin!
unbeatable productAn all time favourite. I have dry skin and it does not cake up. Lasts for hours if set with powder and is the only product that covers my freckles flawlessly
Holy Grail FoundationLove this foundation! Has great coverage and lasts all night.
New favouriteHave been using the same foundation for over 10 years but wanted to try something new and so so glad I did! Mac studio fix is amazing! I was hesitant to try anything else but definitely won’t be going back. This helps to keep my oily skin under control and the coverage is great and lasts all day and night
Good foundation and good coverageStudio fix is a good broad based foundation. Sits on the skin nicely and looks creamy. I have sensitive skin, and found that it didn't irritate. Would recommend.
NiceNice little foundation. Purchased in shade NC15. Goes on well doesnt seem to go cakey at all. Blended well. Only giving it 4 stars because it honestly smells really bad almost like an alcohol or chemical smell.
Great Foundation for PhotographyI bought this foundation in late November this year because of events that I knew I had to attend which would involve lots of photos being taken. M.A.C advertising coupled with past experience showed that M.A.C. foundations looked natural and great in photographs. And this Studio Fix Foundation really does, as was proven in some of my photographs. I am no make-up artist, but the photographs turned out amazing.
It looks quite dry when applied, however after an hour or so my natural oils give it a beautiful natural shine. I have combination skin and get very oily around my T-zone around midday. I hydrate, use primer, even set my make-up with M.A.C Finishing Powder, and a setting spray (Slay all day) but I still have to touch up about 2-3 times in my t-zone area. I found it to be smooth and blendable with a beauty sponge and it is buildable. I like my make-up to be medium coverage, and this works well for me. It can get messy during application as it does not come with a pump. It has a slight but distinct (antiseptic-like) smell, which is only noticable during application. It is expensive, so I use it only for special occasions. I will definitely re-purchase if I run out. I would definitely recommend it to be used for special occasions.
GreatGreat product when applied right, avoid if strong scents irritate your skin.
Great stage makeup!Whilst heavy and cement-like, this foundation definitely serves it's purpose as a long wear heavy coverage contender. Perfect for performers.
A classic!A tried and tested classic foundation. Great range of colours, sits well on the skin. Great coverage and buildable formulation. Great for combination skin like mine.
