This has got to be my all time favourite foundation. I’ve tried so many and I’ve never found that I’ve gone back to them except this one. I used it a few years ago and loved it and then never re-purchased it but the other day I did. As soon as I applied it I put all of my other random foundations aside and this has once again become my staple. It applies flawlessly and matches my skin perfectly (NW10). The only thing that may bug people is the smell, it has quite a ‘paint’ like scent that some may not like (But I love!). I’ve never from this foundation had any reactions that leave my skin red or spotty and it makes my skin look so lovely when I’m having bad skin days. Yeah it’s a bit expensive but it’s so worth it and the bottle lasts so long. A little product goes such a long way and the coverage is full!

The best foundation I have ever tried, I am always swapping and changing my foundations which isn’t good for my skin so I thought I’d try out this as I’ve heard so many good reviews about it and now I can see why, it leaves my skin looking flawless and full coverage but i don’t even feel it on the skin!!! Amazing

My staple foundation - this is a product I constantly find myself going back to, it is very full coverage but still gives a very natural, skin like finish to the face. I find this product to be very long lasting which also helps a lot of my other products stay fresh looking throughout the day. The main reason I tend to go back to this foundation would be because of how long it lasts me; since this foundation is so high coverage you don’t need a lot to go a long way, meaning that it often lasts a lot longer than many other foundations.

Highly recommended for sensitive acne prone skin as it's full coverage but also doesn't clog pores. Love the facg that I can build up where needed and it gives an even blend into the neck line. Not much setting powder required as it's finish is youthful and matte - one of the top ten in my makeup kit for clients.

Ive tried different foundations but this one i keep coming back to. Its not full coverage but it has enough coverage for me. It has such a good range of shades being very pale myself it has a good match for me. With a good primer it is long lasting and gives a flawless finish

I love my revlon colourstay & everyone raved about how great this mac foundation is and i wish i brought 2 of my revlon colourstays instead! This foundation seems to look cakey on my face and settles into fine lines. It doesnt seem to dry either and rubs off even 2 hours after applying it! (I use a primer and setting powder also) i apply this foundation with a damp real techniques beauty blender but it doesnt seem to blend great. Does give good coverage and keep my oil at bay but i prefer revlon colourstay.

Of all the foundations I have tried (many!), This is my favourite. It keeps my oily skin at bay on the whole, I do need to powder or blot occasionally. Pretty decent colour match (nc15) though I would like it to be a little less yellow. Easy to apply and blend. My skin looks flawless with this foundation, however it doesn't hold up in hot weather. It is a lot better than estee Lauder double wear. I'm still hunting for my summer foundation!

I bought this foundation thinking it was going to be brilliant. However to begin with i liked it , it gives a nice coverage and you can easily build it up. But after a while it started to look cakey and not very flawless. Plus the smell is not the greatest. I still use it but try to not put alot on if i can help it .

I have always loved MAC and tried nearly all of their products. Studio Fix is a good foundation if you like heavier coverage. I use this for special occasions. Downside is because it is so thick it is very hard to blend compared to others.

Love the shade selection mac has however this transfers a lot! It gets oily and I feel it oxidized after a few hours. Made me look orange and had to keep blotting the foundation throughout the day. Probably should have got the pro longwear.

Ive been using MAC for around 4 years now and its my absolute savior! Its smooth texture makes it easy to blend. I use NW20 but have also used NW25 whilst living in Australia and a lot more tanned. With other foundations ive found myself having to constantly reapply it throughout the day however once in the morning and this stuff doesnt move, flawless finish right through the day and night. Will always back this product and will always be my no1 go to.

The MAC studio fix foundation is the first high end foundation I have found to make my skin look near to flawless. It balances out the oil levels around my T zone and at the same time manages to not stick to my dryer patches. It blends like a dream, seamlessly into the skin and personally I find it blends the easiest with a beauty blender but also does blend nicely with a buffing brush. I have shades NW10, which matches my natural fair skin tone perfectly and also have NC15 which is a great colour to match a more tanned complexion. Overall it is a more pricey foundation but worth the money👌🏻

I do like this foundation as it gives a good coverage. I have tried shades NC10, NC15 and NW10, yet still haven't found a shade that suits me as well as I'd like for the price. The NW10 has been the best match so far and I'm quite fair. I do really like this foundation and would buy it again as its coverage is even and matte, and doesn't cause me to break out - like many foundations do - but due to the shade issues I think I'm still going to shop around for a different foundation as I don't think it's the one for me.

I was given nc25 (I usually wear light shade) at a mac counter looked good then did not look good 30 mins later! I looked like I had tangled with a wotsit! Coverage was good for a while then it started to separate and cake. Would try again in a different shade gona try mixing it with my moisturiser to see if that helps.
