Yes we know, we are pretty late to cover this product but then we only review products and talk about them if we USE them.
We are a team of women with oily skin, schedule full of regular meetings which gives us no time to groom ourselves and keep travelling in traffic, along with a weather that is so hot you can take oil from our skin and keep the sheikhs happy. What is one of our quick fix up our face and off to work rescue? MAC Studio Fix
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation- NC 42
Mac Claims: A one-step powder and foundation that provides a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full coverage finish. Long-wearing, velvety texture allows skin to breathe.
As I walked into the store for a powder that saves time in application as well as can be used for heavy coverage of marks and under eye circles (Thank you Netflix) they suggested an NC 42, on initial application it seemed yellowish on my skin tone but in natural light or under white light as the day goes the shade settles on my skin perfectly and keeps me looking fresh all day long.
The dry powder texture absorbs oil easily and gives a matte finish, no wonder it is the go to product for all MUA’s. I am neither a Pro or a MUA but I would recommend this for all the ladies who are always on the go, and like me have no time for a daily make up routine. If you want a heavier look I would recommend putting it over a liquid foundation base, the good thing about MAC products are they don’t let your skin feel heavy with their product applications and is dermatologically tested for all skin types.
It’s a got a black outer casing and there are 3 compartments inside. One is for the mirror, the second is for the product and the third is for a sponge case. I was quiet surprised when the MUA at the MAC store showed me the sponge available inside, it really is a time saver and very easy to clean.
Coverage duration: As the day goes the powder settles well on my skin and keeps my face looking fresh, one re- touch is required for it to last 6-7 hrs. There were no cakey layers on my skin and with just a cleansing, moisturing and application of the powder my skin looks like it has a natural make up look.
To end this, I highly recommend this product to anyone who has no time or just wants to invest in an amazing loose powder.
