    Mac Studio Fix is good for clubbing or evening events only....

    The Studio Fix Powder is cakey on me but the Fluid provides full coverage, which is great for clubbing. However, it's too heavy for me for everyday use. Does it cause me to breakout? I would never know because I only use it when I go out at night. Breakouts or non-breakouts, I'm converting to Everyday Minerals and Coastal Scents for eyeshadows, where you get your money's worth and quality.

    Not Worth The $

    Having a very oily T-zone I need something to help out. I bought this on a recommendation from a MAC artist. It SUCKS! It doesn't stop the oil or shine, feels greasy on my face, and causes my mineral makeup to bunch up into little clumps. Total failure. — 6 years, 2 months ago

    I'm on the fence

    A friend of mine and I went to MAC for makeovers. The MUA who did my makeup (which turned out amazing btw) used this as the primer for my face (I have a very oily t-zone and am very very prone to breakouts). The Matte along with MAC Studio Stick foundation and a couple other products and my face was the most flawless and shine-free it had been in next to forever. My friend and I went out clubbing ...read morethat night, and my face stayed shine-free. I was very impressed. I didn't end up purchasing any of the face stuff then, because I still had primer, mineral foundation etc that I was using. When my primer ran out, i thought, hey why don't I give the MAC Matte a try. So I bought it. It's a lot more slippery than I had thought, which makes me know that it does include a lot of silicone. It does blend very nicely, goes in smoothly and does make my face matte... ...here's the downside... It doesn't stay matte all that long... by noon/1 pm-ish my forehead is a nice sexy oil slick yet again. So I have't yet decided if it was the combo of the Matte plus MAC foundation, blog powder etc that made and kept me matte. I do feel like likely in combo with MAC foundation it would probably yeild better results. We'll see, I am planning on switching to the MAC studio stick ones my Mineral stuff runs out — 6 years, 5 months ago

    Worth every penny

    This product works GREAT to keep my oily face matte ALL DAY. I put it on under my MAC Studio Fix foundation and I rarely have to even blot or powder my nose or chin all day. That's unreal! And I usually don't need any touch ups, even after a 16+ hour day. Although it seems like a small tube, the product lasts for quite a while. You only use a small amount. This is a must-have for anyone with an oily complexion. — 6 years, 5 months ago

    Causes Breakouts

    I have been a MAC fan for 10 yrs now and so was so disappointed in this particular product. Not only does it NOT make a difference in its 'claim' to prevent shine, but it also made me break out over and over again. I thought it was just a coincidence that I would break out..so I tested it on 5 random days and each and everytime I used it --pimples galore. Be forewarned... — 6 years, 6 months ago

    MAC MATTE - disappointing

    I bought this tube hoping to find a cure for my oily skin. I was advised by one of the MUA's that this is really good for oily skin and would aid in keeping my t-zone area matte. That wasn't the case. I found absolutely NO difference using this product. I love MAC, but this product was disappointing. — 6 years, 12 months ago
