My take on the product:


One of the most raved products from MAC is the Studio fix powder foundation and it totally lives up to it! The studio fix powder comes in a typical MAC packaging, the pressed powder comes in a black shell or outer packaging. It comes with a mirror and  a sponge which is of really good quality. Great for travelling! Another thing that I like about it is that the sponge can be kept in a compartment given just below the pressed powder, you can lift the flap up and keep the sponge. I also noticed one more thing, the base of the product is perforated ( if that’s what its called?!) It has tiny holes in it, so even if the sponge is a little damp, it will dry really quick. I love it!


The powder is finely milled and very soft to touch. It is very satiny in texture and not at all chalky. I just love the coverage this product gives, it is amazing! When you do not want to wear too much makeup, you can just dab a little of it on top of your bb cream or moisturiser and you will look fab!! If you have too many scars you can use a concealer to conceal your problem areas and top it off with this powder. You can also use it to set your foundation and your under eye concealer and it does not crease at all. This product is so versatile!! You can use a sponge to get good coverage and a brush if you want very light coverage. The texture of the powder is great, it never gets cakey. It effectively controls oil for atleast 5 hours. It doesn’t cling on to dry patches if you have moisturised your skin well. The coverage is great, it can cover mild redness and blemishes really well. Although it has good coverage, it is not heavy, it feels very light on the skin and skin feels breathable. As per the claims of the product, it is very photo friendly. Make sure you choose your exact shade match for it to look natural on your skin. I completely love this product.. for the times when I do not want to pile up too many products on my skin.. it just works great!! If you have never tried any of MAC’s base products, I would suggest you to start with this pressed powder, you will not regret! With great quality comes great pricing too.. anyways that is always expected of MAC. However you get 15 gms of product and it will last you a long time. It’s totally worth it.. Highly recommend!!

Price: RS.2450 for 15 gms
