MAC studio fix fluid

1/09/2016

How difficult is it to find the right foundation for your skin? Except for a few, I think most of you all will agree with me when say it is a humongous task. There is a huge criterion that one needs to keep in mind; skin type, undertone, coverage, finish etc.
According to MAC, it's a modern and improved foundation with a blend of natural ingredients that offer lustrous finish, smooth texture, and extra coverage for uneven skin complexions. Mac's Studio Fix Fluid Foundation is one of the best products with UVA/UVB and SPF 15 for excellent sun protection. Easy to carry product with wearable and smooth texture to cover your imperfections with its flawless and fusion of finish and vibrant colors, the shade recommended by the beauty rep was NC50.


(PS I know a lot of ladies are confused on what the “C’ and the “W” stand for in NC and NW. C is for cool undertones and W is for warmer undertones.) Hope this helps. Enjoy ladies!

Packaging:  A cylindrical glass jar with a black cap. You have an option of purchasing a pump for $10/N2500.


Formula
:  Oil free silicone based foundation providing a medium buildable coverage.

Application: To use, apply to clean, moisturized skin. You need just a pea-sized amount for the T-zone and probably the cheeks

Overall thoughts: Since it is so pigmented, the color ranges are not at all forgiving. If you don't have an exact match, this will simply not look right on you. There are no neutral shades, not even a little. The NC is super yellow in tone while the NW are very pink the undertones are so strong that they very rarely match my skin tone. I find myself always mixing another foundation with it to match my skin tone. So if you have more of a beige or neutral cast to your skin, you are OYO. And the incredibly matte finish combined with the harsh dry wind made my face look dry, dehydrated and highlighted EVERY last flaw

Likes:
  • The foundation does not feel heavy on the skin but offers a soft and smooth surface.
  • The product has good staying power which means it can stay for longer hours without showing any signs of cracks.
  • The foundation comes with a non-drying matte texture. 
  • It’s buildable and can provide almost full coverage to the skin.

Dislikes:
  • The Glass bottle can be too annoying to pull out the foundation. You have the option of buying a pump which is $10 online or N2500/ C40 in store.
  • The product has a horrendous chemical-like smell.
  • Not a travel-friendly product. 

Price: 
$27 online, N8000 MAC store
