MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is the best powder foundation for many around the globe so this baby needs no introduction. I am not very fond of liquid or cream foundations because those foundations start to melt in a couple of hours and slide off of my face. Anyway as my skin is extremely oily no matter what primer I use before that it still wears off or cakes up in 2 hours or so. Powder foundation suits me best so let’s see how the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation survived on my hot messy skin.

How Did MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation Work For Me?

The MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation comes in a black compact which holds a whopping 15g of product. The lid of the compact houses a mirror and underneath the powder there is a sponge for on the go touch ups. I got the shade NC44.5 (I was super tanned when I got this one) where I usually fluctuate between NC42-43. This powder is finely milled, pressed and is completely matte. There are 46 different shades to choose from so it is easy to find your perfect or closest match beautifully.

The MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation can go from light to medium coverage easily and it works well with different makeup tools. For light coverage I use a big fluffy powder brush and for medium to almost full coverage I either use a dense brush like my Real Techniques Buffing Brush or the sponge that it comes with. The powder foundation blends like a dream and melts into the skin looking as flawless as possible. The MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation NC44.5 has no SPF in it so a separate sunscreen is a must when wearing this.

If you are sweating or getting shiny after a few hours make sure to blot the face before reapplying this on top. It doesn’t look cakey or anything and you will only need a layer or two to even out the skin tone. If you have any major imperfections do cover it before applying the powder foundation for a flawless looking appearance. So if you are looking for the best full coverage powder foundation in India then this is the way to go. But if you are someone on a budget and do not want to spend a lot on a powder foundation then the best and affordable MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation dupe is the NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation. Overall, the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is the best powder foundation for oily combination skin.
