MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation NC30 & NC40 Review

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 liquid foundation

I bought MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 liquid foundation almost a year ago. Before I splurged on a mac liquid foundation , I googled endless reviews. I wanted 2 things in new foundation
1- long lasting
2- full coverage 
MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Liquid A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium-build able coverage with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15. Comfortable and long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. Applies smoothly, builds coverage quickly and easily. Contains specially treated micronized pigments and soft-focus powders for a super-smooth look that helps minimize the appearance of imperfections. Absorbs and disperses oil. Contains special skin-conditioning ingredients. Oil free.

And then I planned on getting the MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 . I am between Mac NC 35-40 . The Alafath store at DHA didn't have NC35 so I went with NC40. I also have NC30 , so I mix them both to my perfect shade I can wear both of the shades on their own as this foundation blends beautifully. What I love about this foundation is that its covers any imperfections beautifully and looks flawless . The formula is thin and liquidy and finish is semi matte dewy .I prefer using my fingers to apply it for medium coverage or sometimes f80 if i want fuller coverage but mostly fingers as the warmth of fingers make whole application easy and flawless . I never felt that my face looked cakey and it never felt heavy .i have combination skin , dry from cheek area and oily T zone . I never noticed any breakout. It lasts exceptionally long on me ,I love my Revlon color stay and I am happy to report that MAC Studio Fix Fluid didn't disappoint me ,its even better . I don't wear it on daily / regular bases . I think its best to be worn on night out pr desi weddings which could last whole night. When I'm attending a wedding I apply illamasqua Gleam cream in flex (Swatch here)
Only drawback is that end of day or during humid weather it tends to get greasy , but nothing major which blotting can't fix.

I just wish that foundation came with a pump, rather than having to pay extra to get one .But i read that new packaging is being phased out so there is a hope that MAC will introduce a pump with MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 .

I bought mine from Alfatah store DHA lahore for about rs 3695, You can get this from MAC store or counters all over world and for Pakistani readers you can order it online from


  1. great review , btw how to finf ur NC no ?

  2. I once swathed it on my face, felt soo heavy. and did it oxidize you?

    1. It doesn't oxidize on me but it can feel heavy but I found out that it applies best with fingers or elf flat top brush . F80 by sigma didn't work so well with it

  3. I want to try at least one MAC foundation before I die. LOL! I guess it would be Prolong Wear. Great review :)

  4. not having a pump is a major turn off for me

  5. Awesome review Thanks for sharing :)
