4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 4, 2012   

I usually use cream concealers and/or foundations, but it has been so hot this summer that I don't like to put anything creamy on my face. I was looking for a summer alternative so I ordered this product FIRST because it is a matte finish. Will not use anything with shimmer or shine or god forbid little pieces of sparkle on my face and/or eyes. I'm of the age where those products are out...matte is best. This product was well reviewed and I am also happy with it.

Doesn't last in the heat!
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 2, 2012   

I live in the Middle East and just bought my first compact of this powder + foundation after reading glowing reviews. The temperature here in early June is about 110ºF and this product didn't last 4 hours - and most of that time was spent indoors in air-conditioned rooms. I have fair, combination skin and got a good color match, but this foundation just became cakey and came off as I perspired in the heat outdoors walking to another building and to my car. It easily rubs off too if you blot your face with a hankerchief or tissue. Really disappointed! And the high humidity of late summer hasn't even set in yet! My fault for being tempted to try something new, when I should have stuck with Estée Lauder Double-Wear liquid foundation! That lasts!

Not For Me
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 31, 2012   

I thought this was the solution for days when I needed to apply makeup fast. Nope, not with this product. It is thick and I feel like ever crease or small poor was filled in with this makeup making me look like a freak show clown. I returned this make-up. It might be for the theater or something but not daily wear. And PLEASE even of you think it is daily wear, it reminds me of a girl who thought she looked flawless. She always looked like she had too much makeup on and it it looked horrible. Only buy this is you go to the MAC counter and they tell you how to apply it and what it is for and if YOU need it.

Amazing
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 8, 2012   

MAC products are always amazing. I've never purchased one and have had anything negative to say about it. Studio Fix is a light powder and gives coverage with out the heaviness of a full coverage makeup.

Love Studio Fix
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 12, 2012   

I love studio fix - I've been using it for years. It has enough coverage that you don't need a separate foundation. The one annoying thing can be that as it gets a little older, it seems to dry up and I can never use the entire thing. Still love it though.

Great coverage
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 31, 2012   

My skin tone is kid of pale, so, I can easily get a scar or a pigmentation even from a slight scratch or a tiny zit. I don't have any other problems such as acne or freckles or redness, to be honest, I have pretty clear complexion. Because of that, those several spots really stand out! and it always bothers me. Actually, I'm not a big fan of make-up in general, so I don't wanna spend much time and money on make-up products. Most of all, I hate to put lots of layers of products like liquid foundation, concealers, and setting powder. (Not only it takes efforts, time and money, but also it's not good for the skin, I think. I wanna keep my naturally good skin condition.) but I still want very good coverage and to look natural. In short, what I need is not heavy, one step, full coverage, natural looking and affordable make-up product. It sounds almost impossible? Yeah, it did to me, too. Anyway, I started my research hoping to find out something closest to what I need. (well, I thought I could excuse one down side except coverage.) I read so many reviews and tried so many products from minerals to the airbrush make-up system. WOW! To my surprise, the final answer was Mac studio fix powder! (I thought airbrush make-up would be the answer considering the price, but it's not. Covering little spots with the airbrush needs high technique!, and foundation itself is so easily wasted and pricey.) If you have the same concerns as mine, this is the answer!

Flawless All Day Coverage
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 12, 2012   

I was looking for a new foundation and, as a busy working mom, I don't have time to do a liquid foundation and powder in the morning. This foundation is amazing. I get full coverage, all day wear, and a matte finish without being heavy. I love that MAC makeup has so many shades, you can find an exact match... which means no line of demarkation at the jaw. This is by far the best foundation I have ever worn and will never go back to anything else.

Awesome product
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 6, 2012   

I have been using this product a long time. I love the way it goes on and looks on my skin. It stays on for most of the day may need to touch up if going out in the evening. I have tried cheaper foundations but I always regret it and come back to studio fix powder plus foundation.

M.A.C. Makeup
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 28, 2011   

The MAC counter where I live usually does not have my shade, so I decided to order online. Nordstrom had my shade, and they offered free shipping. The delivery was fast. I was very pleased. I will most likely use them again, when I am in need of more MAC make-up!

For the minimalist too!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 22, 2011   

For those of you out there, who are minimalist and prefer a natural look when it comes to makeup, this is all you need. I don't use concealer or liquid foundation with this, for it's not required! And that's one of the things I love most about this product! Over the years I've used Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Chanteclaire, which are all great..., but they all required concealer and too much of a application "building" process. With Studio Fix, I literally just dust this on, (and I mean DUST), for an even finish. One compact lasts me one year. I use a kabuki brush to apply and it lasts me through the day; I NEVER reapply. I do have blemish free skin, so I don't know how this would look on someone with blemishes or acne. However the reason I come back to this is that it quickly refines with little effort. This on top of healthy skin, with rosy cheeks, shaped brows and clean hair >>> you're out the door.

Piece of Heaven
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 20, 2011   

I have never felt more confident in my life- I literally use this as both a concealer and a foundation. I use the MAC 182 Buffer Brush and just apply in circular motions all of my face, pretty carelessly, don't have a thought-out motion, and then I use the MAC 217 Blending Brush (yes, i am aware that it is an eyeshadow brush, but I originally bought it because the rep told me it was a great under-eye concealer brush) and just go over all of my blemishes and imperfections and I take a look at myself under the very-lighted mirror and cannot believe how incredibly invisible my makeup looks and how remarkably flawless my face looks. To finish, i use the MAC mineralize skinfinish natural and OMG i'm perfect. So many people have noticed!!! (: I have used so many different brands and products (Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Smashbox, YSL, MAC) and I have to say, i thought i struck gold when i discovered Bobbi Brown and then my BFF talked me into trying this product and I have never been happier!!!! I wouldn't go as far to say that it is moisturizing, but it does not dry out your skin.

It's Okay.
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 6, 2011   

I have combination skin and my cheeks are usually very dry, but I have a very oily T-zone. This powder accentuates Every Single flake I have on my cheeks! I had to moisturize my skin a lot and it still didn't look natural. Good thing I didn't buy this, my sister gave it to me because this product is a pass.

10 STARS, MIRACLE PRODUCT
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 14, 2011   

10 STARS, MIRACLE PRODUCT I cannot say enough amazing things about this product. if you are on the line hesitating to purchase because of price let me tell you in all seriousness, buy it. it will change your life (& face!) 1. it lasts a long time if you don't drop and break it (3-6 months). 2. beautiful even tones that minimize your skins redness, bumps or acne. 3. color lasts all day long. 4. i layer this over the mac basic SPF foundation liquid and then add bronzer over it, and creme blush for a perfect glow. I am 24 years old, discovered this at age 18 and have been using it for the last 6 years everyday with beautiful skin. I get strangers who literally compliment me out in public and I attest every single compliment to this makeup.

My old faithful
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 7, 2011   

There are a few things in my makeup arsenal that after 20 years of wearing makeup I have made a well-researched and thoroughly tested decision to never change. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is one of them. I have tried others, every thing else really, and may continue to dabble here and there, but I will never ever be without this. In the summer I apply it with a brush, in the winter with the sponge. I always wondered how the MAC girls had that beautiful poreless skin and I realized, it's not their young noxema faces... it's this. And now *I* have that, too.

perfect powder/foundation
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 19, 2010   

I have been using Studio Fix for years now. I have very light skin, but unlike most fair skinned people do NOT have pink undertones. Most light colored foundations and powders have a tendency to turn pink. The Mac "NC 15" remains neutral, but still light enough for my very pale complexion. The texture is smooth and light. I do use a foundation underneath, however, to provide greater coverage (Mac Mineralize Foundation).

Great product but...
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 8, 2010   

This foundation is ever so light. It's great for those who want to have a more natural look. But for others like me who can't really pull off the natural look do to acne scars, I'd reccommend something a little heavier.

StudioFix
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 10, 2010   

Great product, which I have been using for years. Excellent coverage, smooth and indetectable finish. Wouldn't receommend in sweltering months or climate as it's heavier than regular powder, however. Love MAC's system of numbering their skin care products vs. ambiguous names. When it is summer I can simply order the next one up.

Want the chalky look?
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 9, 2010   

This is basically a really finely milled powder. It just clogs your pores and makes your skin look chalky. It's hard to apply with the supplied sponge without looking uneven. I don't like it..

Better than Fluid !
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 6, 2010   

I had a bad experience with the liquid version , so I decided to get the powder . I love this foundation , it's great . It gives a full , matte coverage , which is great since I have oily skin . The only thing is I don't like is the sponge . I would recommend this to anyone :)

Not for sensitive skin
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 19, 2010   

I used this product for a couple of years without any problems. Recently though, I've started breaking out into horrible rashes all over my face. As soon as I stopped using this foundation, the rash stopped so I know it's the powder causing it! This product has great, flawless coverage, but it's much too heavy and pore clogging for my sensitive skin.

Great product with good coverage
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 21, 2010   

This foundation is sheer and buildable, and I use it as a finishing powder on top of my liquid foundation. A little goes a long way, and this product goes on smoothly and creates a nice, finished look with good coverage. I use a nice fluffy kabuki brush for light and even application. I use the NC42 in the non-summer months, and NC43 when I am more tan during the summer. Perfect for yellow undertones like mine.

Heavy Duty Powder
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 11, 2010   

This is by far the heaviest coverage I have ever come across. And for those looking for a full coverage powder/foundation everyday...you may like this. However, I found it heavy, chalky, and it oxidized horribly on my face. Initially when I put it on I loved it. It covers every flaw and looks matte and perfect. However within an hour my face was a shiney mess! It felt horrible and gross! I could not wait to wash my face that night!

High coverage foundation powder
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 22, 2010   

I love this silky powder. It's excellent for evening out skin tone and covering areas of redness or blotchiness. You can really build coverage too--from light to heavy. I prefer using a sponge, and not a brush, when applying. (A sponge helps me apply the powder a little heavier to those trouble spots.) I'm also very happy with my shade. Because they have so many--and you want it to look seamless--I'd strongly recommend buying for the first time at Nordstrom's MAC counter, not online, until you know your desired shade.

Feels dry on skin

I have normal/slightly dry skin and this did not work for me. My face felt and looked dry all day.

MACfix nw15
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 6, 2010   

I've used this product for over 10 years and have never felt the need to even try another foundation. My first experience with MAC was with their Studio Tech foundation, which I liked, but I find Studio Fix feels a bit lighter on your face which is great for summer. Works well in winter as well, with a little moisturizing primer. When I wear this, I'm always getting compliments on my skin, which naturally is a little ruddy, so it covers what I want it to! Can't go wrong with MAC!

Incredible.
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 3, 2010   

I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, combination/oily skin. I have been using bare minerals for the last four years. i have tried nearly all the primers on the market, and my bare minerals continued to cake, crease, and oxidize. Now that i have switched to Studio Fix, i can use almost any primer, and wear it for nine hours with the need of only one touch-up. I also use it as a concealer, and spritz my face with Fix+ after applying. Perfection!

Best Powder Ever
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 25, 2010   

I bought this MAC powder by accident once, thinking it was foundation. Now I wouldn't use any other powder compact. It has lasted me 2 +years, and never broke into pieces when I dropped it. It does last all day and is very fine and non drying.

Not for me
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 5, 2010   

This didn't work for me. The MAC makeup artist has matched me with NC30 on a couple of occasions. It looks fine in any lighting initially. Without fail, I end up looking like I went nuts with a bronzing powder as soon as I get oily. Unfortunately, I have this same problem with many other foundations.

This is love
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 4, 2010   

I love the studio fix powder. This foundation is so easy to apply you can almost do it with your eyes close. I have been using this product for years now and will continue to do so. I use this foundation especially when I am on the go, because I do not have to put a whole lot of time into applying it. It is a great foundation for those hot days.

GREAT Coverage
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 3, 2010   

This is the BEST foundation! I have lots of red in my skin--always have. I use a foundation brush to apply and ALL my redness is gone. Coverage is very even and lasts all day. It is not heavy or drying. It has a great matt finish. I do keep my skin moisturized and exfoliated.

Absolutely love it!!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 3, 2010   

I wasn't sure about this product when I was first introduced to it and I figured if I didn't like it I would just use it and try a different brand next time. But I absolutely fell in love with it and will definitely not change from MAC anytime soon! It leaves your skin very smooth and flawless, and it covers everything! But the best part of all is that it lasts, I purchased my studio fix in July and just bought a new one in March, that's eight months!!!!

I love this makeup. It makes your face look flawless and it covers all of your pores! It goes on amazingly and lasts for a very long time.

The ol' standby...
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 15, 2010   

There's a reason why those of us who know about this keep coming back. It's like a punch of foundation, concealer, and powder all in one. It really is the most amazing product for any stage affair or even for up close wear, so long as you have a separate touch up powder. If you keep adding this product on top of itself throughout the night, it's going to get thick and start to look cakey. No reason to be afraid of using it though. If you're just looking to skip every skin step and look flawless, this is your man. Just remember to use something lighter when powdering your nose & touching up.

Best Thing In The Entire World
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 13, 2010   

This foundation is the best. I have really oily skin and this foundation makes my face stay dry and it offers amazing coverage and it looks really natural, I've been using this for like 5 years now and I think it's worth every penny. Every time I go to Thailand (it's so humid there) I sweat like crazy, but my makeup always stays put and my face doesn't get that oily, I just really love this stuff!
