Review/Photos: MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42 Liquid Foundation.





MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42- It has a beautiful silky texture that is quite thick, but is very smooth and easy to apply and blend no matter what type of application I do, either with a foundation brush or a dry or wet cosmetic sponge. It provides medium, to full coverage and dries to a matte finish. I just don't recommend applying many layers because it feels heavy on the skin. I like how it has SPF 15 that act as a sunscreen, which makes it a great foundation for everyday use because it protects your skin from the harmful sun rays.

NC42 is a tad lighter than my skin tone, but I make it work by blending the foundation down to my neck. Well, I do this to any foundation I use, so there's no obvious color separation from the face to neck.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't come with a pump. You have to buy it separately, which cost $6. It may not seem like a lot, but you're going to end up paying over $30 when you buy the foundation+pump. I didn't but the pump because I was too cheap O_o.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid is actually my very first foundation and I really like it. It's expensive, but if you want a great everyday foundation with sunblock and if you're a MAC lover, then I highly recommend it.



Price: $26.50  (no pump)
Availability: MAC counter, www.maccosmetics.com

  5. Your skin is amazing! I am jealous! Anyway, I believe that if you do plan on buying the foundation again, buying the pump wouldnt be so bad because you can always clean and disinfect it and use it again ^___^ Well, I hope you can aha.

  8. interesting, I'm not sure how to apply foundations without the pump as I'm used to applying it with my fingers instead of brushes. btw nice leopard top you are wearing in the pic, I've been wanting a leopard blouse forever!

  10. YOu look lovely, doll! I tried the Studio Fix Fluid foundation by MAC a few years ago. It was my first MAC foundation, and I was so excited. Unfortunately, it broke me out, so I had to return it :(

    I think that I want to give it another shot, sometime. When I had it, I remember that I was in love with the coverage and the way it made my skin look. Maybe it won't break me out the second time around?

  11. I would spend $30-something on a MAC foundatin in a heart beat! I use the Studio Fix Fluid too, but in Australia it costs $48 plus $8 for the pump! AND the AUD and USD are pretty much even... very annoying! But I like the coverage and it works well in the summer heat, so I keep going back :P

    Love the eyes in these pics!
