A am a newbie with MAC and till now I have not been disappointed.I have seen some people not in favour of the brand where as some are only devoted to the brand.If you ask me I generally find most of Indian girls either looking for Loreal, Lakme, Revlon or Maybelline etc.When I visit GIP (Noida) mall I see just 2-3 people customers at the MAC  counter but when I watch you tube this brand is so so popular in many countries that I have decided to explore it up.Of course this is going to cost my hubby dear a lot but some how I always convince him:P
Coming over to MAC studio fix powder when I went for my MAC foundation I was advised this powder to with the foundation.I am glad I bought it otherwise I would have never liked my foundation also.
  • Price Rs -1580 for 15gm(I know the product is costly but it turned out as an investment for  me.One studio fix last for 5-6  month easily even if you use it almost every day)
  • Ingredients -  Talc, Silica, Isostearyl Palmitate, Methicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Chromium Oxide Greens, Ultramarines! Made in USA.

My experience with MAC studio fix powder plus foundation:-

When I got the foundation SA recommended MAC studio fix NC 43 to me.No sorry she recommended MAC studio fix NC 43.5 to me.(To be precise:P) but she advised me Studio MAC fix 42 powder to me.This was because it has foundation as well as powder in it which when combines gives a good coverage without much of problem.
When I used it with MAC studio fix foundation then it soaks away all the oil or shine which the foundation gives me.I gives sheer coverage to me when I do not use the foundation and does give me a flawless even skin tone too.
I can use it wet and dry and if you look at  my product you can easily see how much I have used it . 😛 .I have been kind of addicted to this MAC studio fix pressed powder.It has silica in it which gives a matte finish and absorbs the excess oils from the skin.
It gives a matte finish and doesn’t break me out at all.I have applied it with a brush and a sponge too and both works.
It comes with a smooth skin like disc sponge and a small mirror.If you look at my sponge(actually its better you don’t look at it. MAC people can sue me for over using their sponge.:D.I have stopped using the sponge now as it needs heavy cleaning.Sponge also have a separate a case with in the product which I really liked because this way chances of losing the sponge is less and its not much accessible to germs also.By the way the sponge is too soft and I have never come across a better sponge then this one.
If you detest foundation and are always in hurry then you can use this for a noncakey, flawless and natural coverage look.If you look at the picture below.(both the pictures are taken without flash).You can see the difference .It has given me a sheer natural looking coverage .Don u agree to me?
Now some dislike about the product-There is no expiry date.Come on !! I don’t expect this from MAC.Please I need to know the product expiry date from you at least.

  1. Hi Ash..did u like both.it perfectly suited me though.

    You can use it wet by dipping moist brush into the powder .This way you can press the brush one to the spot where you want the highest concentration.

    Though when u use it wet take out the powdery form with your finger so that the base of compact doesnt become wet..

    Also , easier version will be spray some MAC fix or toner. use the powder sponge and apply it on your face:)
