MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation


Say hi to a happy Monday lovelies! :)
Today, I just want to throw my two cents on one of the most known powder foundation-MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus.

 PRODUCT CLAIMS:
A one-step application of foundation and powder. Gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full-coverage finish. Long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. A real all-in-one. The choice of pros, and a long time favourite of M∙A∙C fans.
Source: MAC Cosmetics

Product weight:
15 g / 0.52 US oz


Price:
US$27.00 (from Official Mac website)
But I got mine for $33 at Duty Free Philippines

PROS:
-Decent black compact packaging with mirror and a hygienic separate storage for sponge.
-Literally a foundation on it's own. It gives a nice full coverage on skin. (Great for events and special occasions)
-Feels silky and finely milled yet not powdery at all.
-Comes with a good quality sponge.

CONS:
-It's a steep price.
-Staying power may vary according to one's skin type.

I couldn't comment on skin breakouts since I haven't use this as much. Still prefer a light-medium coverage for daily basis (that's why BB cream and mineral foundie are still my picks). It's nice to try out and see for myself if it's worth the hype. It's best recommended if you want full coverage. Perhaps you're staying most of the time in a fully air-conditioned room and the price isn't bothering for you. Personally noticed that I reach more for my MAC Blotting Powder.

I'm no MAC expert by the way. Regardless, I still want to remind all to be careful with lots of fake MAC products out on the market. Who knows what harmful skin chemicals/ingredients it may contain--Prolly not visible with your early usage but who knows in the long run 'ayt?
I remember, a known local beauty blogger, Ms. Martha blogged about how to spot authentic vs fake MAC cosmetics, you might want to check that out.

Leaving you with a comparison shot of MAC's two different powders.

and MAC's most current collection.
Thank you so much for reading my post.
Take care and God Bless!

  1. I love my MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I'm in shade C40. I have normal skin so it stays long on me. I've had it since December 2011 and it's almost July 2012 and I still have a lot of product left! I don't use the sponge that came with the compact coz it pacts a lot product. I just use my Charm Luxe Flat top brush for this.
