MAC Studio Fix Review
Finding a great foundation is essential but not easy, I’ve tried so many and yet to find the perfect one. I’ve tried La Mer, La Prarie, YSL, Clarins, Dior and Armani to name but a few. Here is my honest review of the Mac Studio Fix.
The first thing about the foundation which has nothing to do with the actual foundation is the fact I had to buy the pump dispenser to go onto the bottle. Now silly as it is, I just grudge buying a pump when I’ve already paid so much (£27 for 30ml) for the foundation.
The foundation comes in 67 shades so finding your perfect match should be possible. I bought mine online as we are in full lockdown and buying anything in a store is impossible. So I used the MAC foundation shade match online (https://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/foundation-shade-match) I have to say, I’m quite impressed with the colour match they gave me.
The foundation is buildable so you can have a light covering or have a full foundation look simply by layering it up. I do like a full coverage foundation so from that perspective it does the job. The other good thing about this foundation is that it’s specifically formulated to not cause acne and so at D’Avoire we particularly love this. The foundation is not liquid but not too thick either however without the pump it is difficult to get out.
I applied the foundation using a foundation brush and it went on easily but is a bit matte for my liking. It was not at all cakey on my skin and lasted well throughout the day but it is not transfer proof and my white jacket has that dreaded make up transfer on it now.
My verdict? A good coverage foundation with lots of shades to choose from but it is not perfect and my quest continues.
