Today my post is about Studio MAC Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I am sharing my review on this blog to help you make an informed decision on your cosmetic purchases. I’ve recently started using luxury cosmetic products, primarily as I don’t invest too much in make-up. But after seeing the womenfolk in my gyms & workplace grooming themselves impeccably & looking diva-like, I realized I need to up my game!
I visited the closest MAC store in 1 MG Mall during the lockdown phase last year & tried & tested various shades & varieties of foundation & compact. But this time with a difference, there were no make-up artistes with their make-up brushes & palettes, to give me a demo of my preferred makeup. I had to apply it with my fingers & cleanse it myself, and with some suggestions from the make-up artiste on the shade that suits my skin tone, I finalized the products.
Let me share my personal experience of using Studio MAC Fix Powder Plus Foundation, for you to make an informed decision while buying your makeup. It’s is a one-step pressed powder & foundation that gives skin a 12-hour ultra-matte finish with medium-to-full buildable coverage, with a velvety texture that allows the skin to breathe. while controlling shine and without causing acne.
It’s long-wearing, color-true, non-caking, non-streaking & non-settling for 12- hours. The other product features are it immediately reduces the appearance of pores, controls oil, and shine for 8 hours. It’s for all skin types, especially oily skin, it doesn’t cause acne, sweat- and humidity-resistant & photo-friendly.

How to use

When using the sponge, ensure to replace it frequently and store it in the compartment underneath the powder.
