Wide shade range
I got this MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 from the store.
It has been more than a month now. I use it every day before I leave for work. My skin leans more towards oily but not entirely. I use the shade NC12. I have some blemishes on my cheeks, and occasionally, I break out.
My experience with this foundation has been quite a good one. I can’t do my face like that makeup artist, but my skin looks flawless. I use a damp beauty sponge to blend it all over. I wish the foundation comes in a more functional packaging. It takes time for the foundation to reach my sponge and it can get annoying — especially when you have used quite a bit, and the foundation is running out.
Other than that, this foundation has never caused breakouts. It stays put for a good 5-6 hours, gives me a dewy, natural finish and blurs the pores on the corners of my nose.
Will I repurchase? I might have to think about it. Because, though I have nothing negative to say about this foundation, I still feel I have used better ones with a much lesser price tag. If it wasn’t for the brand and how it was advertised and promoted, I think I wouldn’t have noticed it.

Tends to oxidize
I usually like products from MAC, but I have a different view about this one. I really tried to like this foundation, but every time, I find some problem with it. To start with, the smell. I can’t point my finger at exactly what it is. But it smells very chemical for me. And also the container. It seems like the whole bottle is filled with the foundation, but the quantity starts midway. And the time for the foundation to reach my sponge seems like forever. Definitely not something I will like to use when I’m in a hurry. I’m very disappointed with this one.

Evens out skin tone
Wide shade range
Natural dewy finish
Not for dry skin
Can get cakey
MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 is a good foundation and works best for normal, combination to oily skin. But it does not work the same for dry skin. It is buildable but not so much. Because when I tried to cover my scar on my forehead, one application did not hide anything. When I tried to build it, after a while, that part became cakey. Other than that, it works well. Oh! And also, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation has a wide range of shades, so be careful while

Gives a smooth and natural finish
I have very oily skin, so this MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 has been my forever foundation for more than three years now. It stays matte for a really long time, about 7-8 hours with a little bit of touch up. No other foundation suits me like this one does. It makes the texture of my skin so smooth and gives a natural finish. I use the shade NW35 which perfectly matches my skin tone, and it covers the redness of my blemishes so finely. My forever foundation!
