I first bought studio fix liquid for a modelling job in 2004. I saw a MAC advisor who colour matched me to NW20. I'm fair but with olive tones, and in recent years I've actually gone a little darker using fake tan on occasion.
I used it consistently up until 2009 when I started with Studio Sculpt before trying a bunch of different brands. This year I decided to go back and sweet mercy, it is different!
The coverage and consistency is still fantastic but the colour is worlds away - not just from the Studio Fix I remember but from the Studio Sculpt I'd recently been using! It is so so much darker, it's even a bit too dark when I'm freshly tanned in a medium shade.
I love the coverage, it's non-drying and covers beautifully but the shade is off compared to other products I use in NW20. My recommendation is to get colour matched again if you want this one, don't just buy your regular MAC shade blind or you could have an expensive mistake!

I've heard so much recently about MAC cosmetics . Some good , but also a lot of negativity about how their products are not as good as some high street brands.
When I had the opportunity to try this foundation , I simply had to find out for myself . As a result I was pleasantly surprised . It has a nice fragrance, the first thing I noticed upon opening . I yet again was surprised at how little product I needed to use . This one is going to last well . I like this fact as it makes it even more cost effective and worth buying . So easy to apply as well . Looks great once on and is long lasting . I actually can't wait to wear it again , as it feels so light on the skin . It is also buildable so you can layer it to get the effect you want . I can honestly say after not expecting much from this product , that I'd recommend and I'd be more than happy to purchase it again .

This is my favorite foundation i have ever tried. It is full coverage, dewy but doesn't look oily and can be used on oily skin as a pressed powder can be used with it separating. It is long lasting i used this on my prom and it lasted for 8 hours.

One of the OG foundations that everyone has loved at some point! Perfect coverage, amazing smell, great shade range! Ive purchased this over and over and cant get enough. Fab to use on most skin types and is popular with makeup artists for this reason.

It doesn’t matter how many foundations I try and fall in love with, I always revert back to my old favourite.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid gives a brilliant full coverage effect which is buildable and blendable. I like how you can go in store and have your exact shade matched up for you so that you never have to worry about an orange face or a tide line. I usually buy my shade and also the next two shades up so that I have a match for when I tan and a match for in between too. Combined with a lighter concealer for under the eyes, I know I can always get the perfect finish when I desire it.

This foundation comes in sooo many shades and matches my skin perfectly. It glides on my skin really well and you can build up the coverage and it won’t cake. It is long lasting and it doesn’t dry up my skin

I found the Mac studio fix foundation to have good coverage felt great on skin and looked quite natural the only downside was it didnt seem to last all day/night it started going a little patchy towards nighttime but overall was pretty good

I have tried what seems like hundreds of different foundations over the years and none of them will ever compare to this beauty. This is by far my favourite foundation. It blends so smoothly onto my skin and gives me that flawless look that can only be achieved by filters. I can not praise this foundation enough. This is a must buy!

I’m using Mac Studio Fix from different years and I’m very happy with this product. I tried different other foundations but nobody compare to this one. It remains perfect on my skin (I have normal-dry skin) and the NC 20 is perfect for my skin tone. Last all day and have a perfect coverage. I tried other fondation but nobody beats the Studio Fix.

As a beauty therapist who struggles erythema (redness of the skin) and dry patches I find it hard to find a foundation that won’t make my flaws obvious. So I was in a MAC store and had a conversation with an employee there who said the studio fix is a perfect match for my skin. I also have fair skin so they tested a few tones on my jaw line before I bought. My jawline has no dry patches so in my eyes it looked perfect. But after a few uses of this foundation it made my skin look 10x worse than it actually was and I was completely unsatisfied, even moisturiser underneath wouldn’t fix this problem. Although it matches my skin really well it just made my skin look and feel awful. Would NOT recommend to a dry, combination or mature skin type.

this foundation is very full coverage and blends very nicely but can sometimes look cakey on the skin if too much product is applied so you do have to be wary of that. overall though I do like the finish considering how thick the product actually is therefore would happily repurchase

The MAC Studio Fix foundation is great for going out / party wear type of foundation when you are looking for a full coverage. One apply give you a great coverage. Packaging is good, however does not have a pump.

The foundation applied nicely, however, it oxidised to a shade almost 2 shades richer than my own. It has a very strong chemical smell, which I couldn’t stand and I noticed that my skin would break out after wearing it.

This product is so overrated because it’s ‘MAC’. Don’t get me wrong I love some of the MAC products but I gave this foundation a go and was not impressed. I have light combination skin (my nose is really dry and my forehead is oily/ most of my problems) and I’ve found the foundation to wear off after 2 hours which includeds priming , setting and adding powder! All skin types are different so some love it and some hate it but this isn’t the foundation for me.

I love this foundation. I tried before mac prolonwear but this is much better. It last all day. I work 13h shift and the foundation looks perfect all day. I was really syprised as my skin is dry and I didn't picture myself to like this foundation. My bronzer (hoola) looks very good on it and keep on all day long. I use a brush to give a better coverage and a bury blender where I want the foundation to have a sheer effect. Worth to try it.
