Hello everyone! If you read my birthday blog post you will know that I received a few make-up bits, including MAC! I am slowly but surely trying out items from MAC that I have wanted to try for years. Today I am going to be taking a look at MAC's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in the shade NC15. You can take a look at the powder and its available shades here on the MAC website.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC15
I have reviewed the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation here. After I had bought and tried out this foundation I knew I had to try the powder!
The packaging is so sleek. I really love how professional this compact looks. It is domed in shape and when opened reveals two compartments. The top compartment reveals a handy compact mirror which is perfect for travel and on the go touch ups. The second lower compartment contains a circle sponge applicator. Personally I do use the sponge with this product as the powder, for want of a better word, is very powdery when used with a normal powder brush. I find that using a sponge allows you to perfectly place the powder on your face and then you can blend it further with a brush.
The powder itself is absolutely amazing. It perfectly sets your make-up in place. My make-up doesn't budge for hours after I have set everything with this powder. What is even more impressive is that it has a full enough coverage that you could simply use this as a powder foundation on its own or over concealer. I often use this after wearing make-up since 7am to quickly touch up my make-up and coverage again at 5pm rather than re-applying a full face of foundation. It truly is amazing!
The price tag for this is £21.50 therefore I wouldn't recommend it as an affordable day to day powder. However for touch up and special occasions it really is amazing. The finish is absolutely gorgeous and the powder has amazing oil control throughout the day.
