My dermatologist recommended this powder to me. My skin is very sensitive and ance prone. I have never found a better product for my skin. I will no longer use a heavy liquid foundation on my face. This powder gives the perfect amount of coverage without looking caky or heavy and it helps to control the oil on my skin throughout the day. I get so many compliments on my skin and it looks so much healthier. I love this product!

Love and will continue to love Studio Fix. The coverage is perfect and the finish is beautiful.
On a side note....MAC please keep your stores stocked with product. It seems that every time I actually go to a MAC store, they do not have anything. BB creams and lip liners are ALWAYS out of stock....and now the online store is having the same problem! No one should have to wait two weeks to get MAC makeup....especially when paying these prices!

Best Thing Ever
Tags +Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable, first time users
I am a dark african american woman and I love this product. I have alot of dark spots on my face and the powder covers it right up. It last all day for me and several hours in the hot richmond sun. i have an oily t zone and it really helps control my skin from becoming shiny. I rarely feel the need to touch up at most I will touch up once every 6 hours. This product works amazing when used with the prep and prime primer. The only down side that is also an upside is that it doesn't wash off easily

A Great Product!
Tags +Moisturizing, Long wearing, Oil control, Buildable, light coverage, medium coverage, maximum coverage
I am a young African American female and my skin is very oily especially in the t-zone area. I tried numerous brands of foundation and nothing seemed to work. This foundation is great! I also use the MAC Oil Control underneath this foundation and the MAC Pressed Blot Powder over top. These three products work together great! I would recommend this to anybody!

Works Wonders for Very Oily Skin!!!
Tags +Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable, medium coverage very oily skin
I am an African American female with very oily skin. I've tried Studio Fix Fluid but it is way too greasy. Today I went to my local MAC counter and tried on the Studio Fix powder. My color is NW43 and it looks great on my skin; it doesn't make my face look dry or ashy. The powder stayed on my skin until I washed it off, 7 hours later. When I was at the counter I also had some eyeshadow put on (Deep Truth) and it was long lasting, even without a primer. This powder is now my foundation staple.

UNREAL
Tags +coverage
This foundation powder is the only foundation I will use. I am a huge makeup snob, and I am absolutley OBSESSED with this product. I use it as a foundation under my bronzer and makes my face look great. I dip my powder brush in a little water, and it turns to a light liquid foundation, offering extra coverage. Buy a shade lighter than your skin. BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO MUCH LOVE!!!
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I have been using this product for close to fifteen years. I cannot say I have never strayed- but this is the standard by which all others are measured. And no one ever measures up. I always come home to the Studio Fix. A little coverage- no problem. A lot of coverage without looking "pan-faced" -also no problem. Studio Fix creates a flawless canvas whether your look is fresh and natural or bold and dramatic. A very versatile product with so many tones- I use a different shade depending on the season- depending on how much time I have been in the sun. LOVE!

totally perfect product
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I have been using this product for over 2 years. I really do not like to fuss or spend time making up my face, but with this powder/foundation combo I get the coverage I want in just a few seconds. It is comfortable, light and natural feeling. I am 65 years old and have relatively good skin, but this product hides what I want it to cover and otherwise gives me the natural look I want.
I first bought it at a make up store in an airport, but have since re-ordered at MAC.com I have recommended this line of cosmetics to many of my friends, as well as my daughter and daughter-in law. IT is an appropriate make up for multi generations of skin.

Great Coverage
Tags +Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable, coverage even tone
I have medium brown, oily skin with blemishes. I was skeptical at first but this product definately covers all of my blemishes and is not cakey. It’s very light as if you are not wearing any makeup at all. Blends good with my skin and provides me with an even tone. Finally, something that works!!

perfection
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I am very fair and purchased this in NW15 (was too light) got the NW18 and it is a perfect match to my skin. It covers redness and any imperfections beautifully. I also like that it lasts all day and doesn't make my face shiny.

New staple
Tags +Long wearing
I have combination oily skin and this helps keep me oil free for most of the day. I usually have to powder my nose mid day but that's with any foundation. It defiantly gives medium coverage that's buildable to full coverage and last all day unlike other powders. Awesome foundation, my new staple powder foundation and may even splurge on the liquid.

My Favorite Powder
Tags +Long wearing, everyone, clean look
I have used this powder for years. It provides a great amount of coverage and will hide my pores. For a strong foundation use a kabuki brush to apply. For a light more natural look then use the provided sponge or a standard powder brush.

Not great for dry or aging skin
I used this all the time when I was in my early 20s and I loved it, but now that I am 30 and I have some aging going on it's not working so great any more. Also, my skin is a little dryer now than it used to be and this foundation causes some discomfort. I suppose that if you are very young/have oily skin, this would be a great foundation for you, but if you have dry skin/wrinkles, do not use this.

Wonderful stuff!
Tags +Long wearing, Oil control, Buildable, oily skin
I am almost 38 years old, have fair skin and mildy oil skin. I tend to run warm so I can't do foundations because I feel like they melt onto my face. I love this powder! It has great coverage but feels light at the same time. It absorbs oil and a little goes a long way. I use Fix + spray over it so it doesn't look so "powdery". If you have fine lines under your eyes, just go lighter there with the powder. This is where Fix + helps though too because it gives you a "moist" look without looking oily. SO, for me this powder & Fix + are a great combo. Thanks MAC!!

Great powder plus foundation
Tags +Long wearing, Oil control, Buildable, anyone
This is a M.A.C original. And a must have for every make up artists kit. It is very versatile. You can use it with a brush for medium coverage or a sponge for full coverage. I like to set it with Fix+ for long wear and a more natural looking finish.

BEST FOUNDATION + POWDER
Tags +Moisturizing, Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable
I have been using MAC Studio Fix for over 10 years! I absolutely love it! MAC has so much variety of colors to choose from. I have Combination Oily Skin and this works best for me because it is a mixture of both. For some reason foundation doesn't stay on well and powder itself doesn't cover enough. This is the BEST. I can build on coverage or lightly dust it on my face with a powder brush. If you haven't tried this, give it a shot and you will fall in loVe :)

AMAZING!!!!
Tags +Oil control, Long wearing, Buildable
This is the best powder foundation I have ever used! I wanted something that covered well but didnt feel heavy and would last all day. This is perfect! I do wish I would have got a lighter shade but it still looks very natural. I have acne scars that can be hard to cover up but this does a great job!

really nice
Tags +Oil control
I am not someone who wears much makeup, but i decided that i needed to buy some, for special occasions and since i am probably going to get a job. This powder is really soft with your skin, gives you a natural look and stays for hours, it provides an all-mate finish and coverage, i really like that because if you apply this on your face it won't have the shinning or oily like effect that you sometimes get by the end of a rough day. Also I like the fact that it comes with a nice mirror and a sponge which is algo useful. So this is a really nice product to buy, though I bought the NC15 and am not sure whether it was the best colour for me, mac should upload pictures of skin tones for the better decision-make of their clients.
