    MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

    Great Foundation if worked with

    I had always used drugstore foundations and my sister was like you need to get MAC already. So, I did. Lol. I went and got matched at Macy's. The color I got was maybe a shade too dark but it worked since I use a light setting powder. It is most definitely a full coverage foundation! Which, i actually love. A lot of people say it looks cakey and blah blah but it only looks like that if you apply it like that! When I use this foundation I like to lightly stipple it on then blend it in. Then I stipple on any areas I feel aren't covered enough. This gives me the best coverage but doesn't weigh down my face. I also like to use a matte face powder over because my skin tends to get oily especially around my t-zone. The price is somewhere around $25, not sure the exact amount.. Which I find not to be completely terrible for a high end product. I've spent up to $40, so far, on a foundation. Even my mom, who is sooo cheap, said that wasn't too bad. I think it all just depends on if this foundation works for you. If it doesn't then obviously don't waste your money. For my skin, it works!

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    I had been recently searching for a really great foundation. My sister recommended MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 but that is pretty much all she has ever used. I tried that and liked it but I also wanted to see what else was out there. I checked my favorite make up gurus on YouTube and heard really great things about Make Up For Ever. I went to Sephora and got match and purchased it. The color matched me perfectly! My MAC shade was a bit dark but I don't know if I was just matched incorrectly. It definitely is a medium to full coverage. If I apply it lightly I have some redness in my cheeks that will still show through and if I have any blemishes they are lightly visible. However, I find that you can layer this foundation. If you let it dry or use a setting spray I like use a stipple brush on the areas that need a bit more coverage. I think this foundation would be great to use in summer because its not heavy at all. I do use a face primer before and I never had issues with the wear of it. I have not tried it without primer. I purchased it for $40 which I think everyone does, lol, which is a bit steep. However, I find that I only spend money on products I truly love and believe that no other can compete with. For me, this foundation is by favorite. I have oily/combo skin and it works well with me. Everyone is different though so do your research before spending the cash!
