Current Foundation: Mac Studio Fix Fluid

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I'm here now. Today I thought I would talk about my current foundation, I normally change up my foundation on a regular basis depending on my desired look, however, I have been loving one of my old favourites. Take a guess?

Did you guess right? The winner goes to 'Mac Studio Fix Fluid' (wow you can tell I haven't posted in a while hah) I first invested in the infamous Studio Fix Fluid, on my birthday a while ago, I'd heard so many great things about this product and I wanted to give it a try, however, I also heard that it has broken a few people out, and with my acne prone skin I have to admit I was rather hesitant to purchase it, but I thought hey-ho, I won't know unless I try.

Retailing for £21.50 I'd personally say this foundation is worth the money. Mac offers an amazing colour range which is perfect for a variety of different skin tones to fit any complexion. Mac claims this product is; 

"A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium-buildable coverage with 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. Oil free." 

"A natural matte finish" I'd definitely have to agree with this statement as, when first applied it is very matte, but after half an hour (without powder) this product lets natural oils through. This can be flattering as it gives a nice glowy appareance to the skin, but I normally always use a powder. "Medium-build able coverage" the coverage is definitely my favourite thing about this product as you can sheer the product out and create flawless face depending on how much you apply and how you apply it. 
"Lasts up to eight hours" I would say this product is long wearing, however, that means applying a primer to the skin after moisturiser, (I normally do this anyway, us oil skin gals and guys need primer) I would also recommend applying a powder, to set the skin, and personally I like to use a setting spray to ensure my makeup will stay in place. 
"Oil free" personally i haven't noticed whether this product is oil free or not, but I have found that it helps to absorb any excess oil my skin produces.

The next thing about this product is the packaging, the classic matte black finish. Since the bottle is made of glass the product feels very luxurious, you get 30ml with this product which lasts me a good few months (especially when I don't wear makeup)  I think the packaging is super pretty and looks so cute on my dressing table (cliche I know). If I am being picky, the only downside to the packing is that you have to buy a pump separately, I don't mind too much it's just annoying sometimes (I recently broke mine too) 

Overall, I adore this product, it lasts well, the colour is perfect (I wear nw10, pale I know) I always go back to using it, and if you like a flawless face, or a bit more coverage than usual (even for special occasions) this is one to have in your collection.
