Happy New Year! Hope this year brings you tons of happiness , health, wealth and success! May the new year give you new beginnings that you have always wished for! ♡ ♡ ♡ So, today I am going to be reviewing my Holy Grail product that I just cannot do without “ MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation”. I have been using this baby for about two years now and I just cannot stop! I have never hit pan any beauty supplies in my vanity but this! I am obsessed with it! Without further a do; lets jump straight into the review;
Price: INR 2500 for 15g
What the product says: A one-step powder and foundation that provides a matte texture with medium coverage.
Ingredients: Talc, Silica, Isostearyl Palmitate, Methicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol [+/- Titanium Dioxide(CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI77499), Chormium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Ultramarines (CI 77007)] <ILN29838>
Shade: NC 40
Packaging: The studio fix powder foundation comes encompassed in a black compact form packaging comprising of two compartments. The upper compartment holds the product nicely in a wide pan while the lower compartment makes space for the sponge to sit comfortably! The compact has a nice mirror as well! I really love the way it is packed as it looks really classy and does not take up much space as well.
Colour: As stated earlier, I am a NC40 and so is my sister. The colour is perfect for my medium to fair skin tone, I could have opted for a shade lighter as well. But I feel comfortable wearing this shade. 😀
Texture: The texture of this MAC powder is phenomenal as it is super easy to work with! Even after multiple layers, it leaves your skin looking natural and not cakey at all. If open pores are an issue; this takes care of them really well. The product is finely milled and super soft to touch!
Fragrance: The compact doesn’t really have a fragrance it; not something I can particularly relate to! A hint of fullers earth probably!
Coverage: It offers medium coverage that can be built up; however by no means it is going to give you fuller coverage unless you team it up with your foundation and concealer! I absolutely adore the coverage it gives on its own as it is perfect for everyday wear and days when you are too lazy to layer on makeup.
Longevity: Usually I do not reapply my makeup and with this I feel the need to touch up is a lot lesser than other face products. It stays put for good 5-6 hours on my combination skin. Maybe if you skin is oilier you will need reapplication!!!
Mommy Verdict: There’s no guessing here because The MAC studio fix powder plus foundation has been one of my wisest makeup investments in years! It works beautifully with or without a foundation underneath; gives medium coverage and is a must have for all you lazy girls out there! Even though, its pricey its worth investing in as the quantity is huge and will last you about eight months to a year depending on your usage!
