MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation ReviewMy Experience with MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation:

So after completing my 10th I got addicted to makeup and rushed to MAC because everyone are swearing by its products and my first ever buy from MAC was the MAC Studio fix compact plus foundation.
My actual shade is NC40 but I bought NC35 because only this was in stock at that time and the store is far away from my house.
But amazingly!! I never knew that even NC35 will look so amazing on my skin.

MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation ReviewPackaging:

It comes in a black cardboard box. The compact comes in a round compact holder with a mirror and a sponge powder puff. I personally found the packaging very classy and I don’t hesitate putting it out and flaunting while doing touch ups. ;-)

MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation ReviewTexture and Coverage:

The texture is so fine and smooth!! It goes on smooth on skin. It will never make you look cakey. I don’t have any dark spots so I don’t know if it covers them or not. It gives my face full coverage and a perfectly matte finish which I love the most because I have oily skin and It lasts on my face for 7-8 hours.

Pros of MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation:

  • Awesome Coverage
  • Won’t look cakey at all
  • Makes skin soft and smooth.
  • Works both as a foundation and compact in one.
  • Variety of shades
  • Comes with a sponge puff applicator and a mirror for outdoor touch ups.
  • Classy and sturdy packaging.
  • Lasting power is 7-8 hours which is amazing.
  • Soft and smooth texture.

Cons of MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation:

  • Expensive

I don’t find anymore con, I just love it :)

Will I Repurchase MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation?

Yes ofcourse but NC40 this time.

Do I Recommend MAC Studio Fix Compact Plus Foundation?

Yes, definitely, you won’t regret it.

Rating: 4.75 Out of 5 (0.25 deducted for being expensive)

Overall verdict:

I love this compact !! If you top it on a foundation it will work way more amazing. Otherwise you can apply only this if you are in a hurry and get a perfect coverage :)

    Hi,
    Super review … Wanted to know if this looks too made up in the day time ? (As I have dusky skin and have to b careful with makeup in day time )
    One more question…could I use it over my bb cream or would that make it cakey ?
    Would be glad to c ur response.
    Thanks a tonne

      no it doesn’t look made up at all. Yes, you can use it over your BB cream without worrying that it would make you look cakey!
