I really enjoy MAC base products, especially their foundations. I have very dry skin and I find this powder does not dry me out or age me at all. I have trouble with every foundation I wear settling into the fine lines on my face and this is no exception, however as it is a powder it tends to settle less than liquid foundations. This foundation is very versatile, the coverage can be built up to suit your preferences and the colour is a very good match for me. I wear C1 in Face & Body and NC20 in the powder as NC15 is just a touch too light.
Overall, a great powder foundation, I use this almost every day for work and I love it. Will definitely repurchase when I hit pan!

Perfect coverage and exact match.
This color is absolutely the most orange color i have ever seen. It is too dark for me.

I love the ease of application and how much coverage you get from this, which I was not expecting from a powder. However, the finish does seem to be somewhat powdery/cakey when you first apply it, though that does seem to fade soon after application; I've noticed that it looks much less powdery as soon as I finish the rest of my face, though for that reason I felt like it lost half a star. It loses a full star for me because not only does it seems to wear heavy after a few hours (despite the initial lightweight feeling), but also begins to bother my skin. I have very oily, very sensitive skin, and after 4 hours my skin appears to be oilier than it would without foundation on, and after 5-6 hours my skin starts to itch and I feel the need to desperately remove it. Ultimately, I would recommend the foundation for most people, but with caution if you find you have similar oil/sensitivity issues.

I love that this is full coverage foundation and powder because of my oily skin, this do not control the oil but it's better than a liquid foundation. It last all day long with primer, without it just 6 or 8 hours but still good for a powder product on oily skin. Also I use it on a daily basis routine and for touch up, and it last me more than 6 months!

I use Studio Fix mostly to set a cream product (foundation and concealer). The undertone is great on my skin, yellow and a tiny bit towards olive, while still being very fair. Although - not as fair as I would prefer. It doesn't match my neck, it's a shade or two too dark, and so I only use it on the upper part of my face. Too bad this is the lightest shade available.
The added coverage on top of a medium cover liquid foundation is very nice, applied with a dry sponge, and just pressed into the skin gives a flawless finish.
You get a great amount of product, and it lasts a very long time.
It's way too dry to use alone as a foundation for me, I have to slather on the moisturizer in that case. But I imagine it works great for oily skin.
Though, it is a foundation, so it's not as dry as a powder, rather powdery but slightly creamy.

it is a perfect match for me. ı am dead pale and very pink. but, it looks too cakey, powdery. my face looks like ı have tons of makeup. ı like really natural looking foundations. ı know people that dont matters the powdery fınısh. for me, ıts not worth it sorry :/

My holy-grail powder! I have been using this for probably over 10 years now and was the first product I was ever colour matched to. I wear it over a BB cream as an everyday look as well as for a setting powder in my T-Zone over liquid foundation for special occasions. The product is beautiful and light and doesn't cake or crease leaving a flawless, natural but matte finish. Touch ups are easy using a powder brush for light and even fix-ups.
