What we say:
I danced from a young age and over the years I grew accustomed to the heavy make-up required for stage shows, however the powder was one product I could never get used to. In my mind, powder only came in one variety, cakey!

Boy am I glad I got over my dislike for powder as over the years it has been a lifesaver. Unless I am wearing a super matte foundation, without a face powder, my face starts to get slightly shiny before noon – no one wants a shiny face! I have used a variety of drugstore powders over the years, but none of them have compared to the MAC Studio Fix powder. Not only does MAC have a huge variety of shades, but also the quality and staying power of their powder is incomparable to any other brand.

The powder comes with sponge in a separate compartment, but I prefer to use a quality powder brush. By using a brush I am able to apply an ultra light dusting of powder that gives my face a matte finish after applying BB cream or foundation. On days that I want to give my skin a break from most make-up, I dust a touch of powder over my face to even out any redness and I am good to go. I will continue to use this powder until a new hero powder comes along, but after using this powder for 6 years, I’m convinced that I won’t find a powder better suited to my needs.

Mack Studio fix gives me a flawless glow. Blends well and gives a natural look and does not make me look cakey! I achieve a full coverage look. Unfortunately the product is a bit pricey.

Couldn’t counter the shine

I have a very oily skin, I used this product in conjunction with the MAC studio fix liquid foundation. After an hour the powder could not keep my shine away and I had to reapply. Perhaps a matte creme foundation with the product would be better, I am yet to test this!
The packaging is oh so sassy – as all MAC products are and it does feel light on the skin while providing good coverage.

This amazing product has changed my complete view about face powders, I love it, it is very light and I don’t have to re-apply several times. It actually stays long and I got the perfect match for my skin tone. Love it, I would recommend it on a scale of 10 out of 10.



I love it, it lasts nearly the entire day.

This product has a very great coverage. Its not the right product when you need a natural look, but its perfect when you need a very good coverage for a night party or photoshoot. MAC has a great assortment of shades, so you can go to a store and find the perfect one for your skin. My tip is using it before the concealer, because it cover most of imperfections by itself.

I wore MAC on my wedding and I’ve worn it since… they have made to measure colours in long wearing formulations that last and stand up to humidity and heat. This compact though is a bit delicate….I’ve broken a few along the way and the powder inside. Buy spares… you will take this one everywhere.
