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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
