MAC Cosmetics ~ Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation ~ NC50 Review

I decided to review the MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC50 as it has been my staple for yearrrsss! I literally cannot leave the house without it, especially if I need a cheeky touch up during the course of the day. Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is a foundation and powder in one product (did I hear you say bargain?!). The powder has a matte, velvety texture to it making it easy to apply. MAC describe the product as being able to provide "good coverage". It also contains Silica which is known to absorb oil from the skin and talc which gives it that matte finish.

As mentioned before, I am a fan of this powder and use it daily (yes I said it!). However, I do think that when I've used it on it's own, it doesn't provide the coverage that I'm after. I always need to use a concealer or a liquid foundation to cover up any blemishes prior to using this powder. Then voila...welcome flawless skin. It may sound a little excessive considering the fact that it is already a foundation, but it's not. It is not as heavy as you would think it to be. Although I do have friends who use this powder on its own, but they have extremely clear skin.

If you're a regular reader of my blog you would have seen me mention that I have oily skin, so I'm immediately drawn to products that offer a matte finish. After applying this powder, it does have a matte finish which should last for up to 8 hours. I can normally go a few hours without becoming too "shiny". However, after about four hours, you could easily fry an egg with the shine on my face (blotting sheets on standby!). Now this has nothing to do with the powder, rather my skin type.

All in all, I think this is a good powder to have if you want a product that isn't too heavy on your skin and provides good coverage. It comes with a sponge but I use a powder brush to apply it evenly across my face. The powder retails at £20.50 for 15g. You can pick it up from your local MAC store or online. Click here.

Have you tried this powder and foundation combination before? What do you use?

Thanks for reading!

  4. Oh I might have a look at the Mac counter soon! I've been looking for a product that has low-medium coverage for every day. I have freckles, but I don't want to entirely cover them.
    Thanks for this review!
