    Do you know if this is going to be a full coverage foundation or sheer?

  2. Tekoa

    I’ll try the foundation. My studio fix fluid just ran out.

  3. Shayna

    I’ve been looking for a new under eye concealer, do you think this concealer will do the job of under eye circles?

  4. grace

    i am interested. i will go check this out when it comes out and talk to the MUA to see if it would work for my oily acne prone skin.

  5. Julia

    I’ve heard that the foundation is best for dry, sensitive skin, so I will pass on that one. But a gel concealer sounds interesting!

  6. Kella

    I’m VERY excited for this collection. I can never get enough concealers and foundations…

  7. Shayla

    Considering that the word “sculpt” is in the name of this collection, I’m surprised they haven’t brought out the Shape and Sculpt powders again (or whatever they’re called).

    I’ve been interested in those lately (after they came out last time, unfortunately), so it’d be nice if I didn’t have to place a PRO order when I decide I want them.

    if the foundation is really for dry skin, i’ll pass. but gel concealers, hmmm, i might try that out. i don’t really like the concealers from mac because the creams were too dry or the liquid ones were too sheer. i’m hoping the gel ones will be concentrated yet easy to apply.

    • Candice

      The foundations were created for all skin types. The coverage is intended to give a flawless coverage without being heavy looking as Studio fix. The foundation is buildable from sheer to full.It makes the skin seem glowly verses dry.

  9. Kate

    Love the concealer in little pots!

  10. Vee

    I’m really interested in this collection! I love it when companies put more focus into excellent (hopefully) basic products and less on pumping out colour collection after colour collection!

  11. Can’t wait to try this out! And new brush weeeeeee 😀

  12. Brooke

    is this perm? for the foundation, do you know if it’s heavy or wearable for every day??

  13. how big is the prep and prime? i used to use the one in the blk container it didnt do too much im excited!! =D

  14. Shanel

    Im very interested in this new line! can’t wait for feb.5

  15. The concealers look like a good grab and I should start using it since I never do but Studio Fix Fluid works fine just for me. Might get that foundation brush though.

  16. Tanya

    It would be nice if the new things coming out on the 5th will be available at the HK unvailing party on the 3rd…I find it annoying to drive 40 min on the 3rd, only to have to go down two days later to see another new release :( That said, I am curious about this, its nice to see MAC doing NC and NW 15s…since not all their foundation colors come in NC/NW15….which is me.

  17. LocaLoli

    I can’t wait to try the concealers. Sounds like fluidline for the face YAY!

  18. Sarah

    if they blend well, i wonder how the concealers would work as a contour.

  19. Lola

    I love the packaging – concealer in a fluidline pot, yum!

  20. Does anyone know what MAC plans on replacing Select Tint with? Or are they just not doing a tinted moisturizer again?

  21. Jennifer

    I love my Studio Fix Fluid, but I’m curious about this. Thank goodness it comes in NW/NC 15. They keep discontinuing those shades. What’s a pale Canadian girl to do, otherwise?

  22. Whitney

    My review on Studio Sculpt Foundation & Concealer

    thanks to temptalia, she got me super interested!!

  23. hi

    How do you figure out what skin type u are, i.e. NC15 NW45 or whatever? I’m an EXTREMELY pale redhead with dry skin.

  24. nico

    I had to go to 3 MAC counters to get properly matched!! Make sure you ask an experienced MA not just a sales clerk to help you.

  25. domi

    are these limited?

  26. Ashley

    Is it actually better than the studio fix?

    And does anyone know how much the foundation costs?

  27. Bekah

    How much is this going to retail for?

  28. Dana

    Is this at all comparable to the discontinued Studio Finish Matte Foundation in the same packaging? That had a “whipped” feel too.

  29. kenya

    is this product LE?

  30. i wonder if this collection is releasing internationally??

  31. Rachael

    I was at the MAC store the other day and one of the MAs put the studio sculpt on me. I really dislike it. Its really cakey and thick and set right into the lines on my face. It was just gross lol. Not a fan!

  32. Balqees

    I want the brushes,I cant stop buying them!

  33. Shanel

    Brush 191 is already a sold at mac stores, and counters. The 195 is the a new brush though.
