I would give this a rating of 4 but I still have reservations about it. It's a bit thick... which is ok if your skin is perfectly smooth and not flakey. BUT if you're not perfect... it make take a while to figure out how to apply it without looking like accidently walking past a person cleaning a chalk board. There are tons of shades so you can probably find something close. It is a heavy matte finish so no shine but at the same time, you have to BLEND! Overall it isnt priced expensively and it's pretty good for spring and fall. Just watch out in the summer when your skin gets really oily. Studio fix can get ugly when there's too much oil!

Product: comes in 15gm and lots of shades. the product is finely milled.
Packaging: comes in classic black packaging and also outer black case. The compact has 2 compartment one for product opposite side is mirror and second for sponge
Price: around Rs.2500
Performance: i have been using this product for about 4 years and its my go to product. A one-step powder and foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium to full coverage. Long-wearing, velvety texture allows skin to breathe. Available in a wide range of colours. As per the name, its foundation and powder put together to make task easier. with thus product your routine is 1 step shorter. It gives good coverage. On normal day i apply moisturiser n studio fix and I m good to go. Also MAC has Back2MAC program encourages its customer to return their used containers ( 6 containers for a lipstick)
Cons: it isnt transferproof and u need to spread it well

This is by far the perfect shade for my skin! I love the fact that MAC always has varied shades in their range. This is my HG compact and I use this only at occasions to achieve that flawless look. On an everyday basis I don't go for foundation hence I don't use this every day. This is a full coverage compact which covers all sorts of pigmentation and discoloration. This can also be topped on a liquid foundation to get even more coverage. But one has to be little careful in applying because when gone overboard this might end up looking cakey. This compact does blur out pores and provides a matte finish but it doesn't control oil for long. I can never find a dupe for this! Though a little pricey but it is worth every single penny. Also with a shelf life of 36 months, this would go a long way.

I have never been disappointed with MAC face products, the studio fix powder gives coverage and sets the makeup for longest time. It beautifully controls all extra sweat and gives a natural second skin finish look. A slight dust of this super soft powder all over the face is enough to keep your face matte all day. Find the right shade and you are good to go.
It's a finely pressed powder, perfect for on the go retouches and traveling. With a damp kabuki brush or damp sponge, I'm able to put this on beautifully (takes a bit of practice). I kid you not people actually think I use liquid foundation on my face! It gives me a nice medium coverage. I don't use concealer but I heard that if you do want to use one, apply that first before putting your foundation.
Performance: By around 4 hours my nose starts to get oily, but I'm able to blot it off with blotting paper without disturbing much of the product. I also don't really use this to retouch for oilyness, I use my innisfree no sebum mineral powder for that (to save the product). By the end of the day it will fade as most powder foundations do, but it fades gracefully. Its one of those moments where you actually look better when your make-up fades! (anyone has the same thing happen to them?)
I say this is perfect for girls with oily and combination skin, and I highly discourage my dry skin sisters with this. I love this product and the only con really is the price. This gives me a nice based and a pretty glow, BUT PLEASE WHATEVER YOU DO: GET. THE. RIGHT. SHADE

This is good everyday powder foundation but it is very easy to go over the board and become ckaey with this powder.I have an oily skin and i have blot after 4-5 hours with this powder on. As you add more powder ,the cakeyness appears which is not a very pleasing appearance.

Its my everyday product! Lasts for around 4-5 hours and helps n blurring imprefections. the coverage sheer, but I find it great for everyday wear.
I use this product almost every SINGLE day! I prefer not using foundation on weekdays, so I use this and a concealer. Lasts for good 6 hours
Type: Loose Powder, Pressed Powder, Setting Powder, etc
Tell us if it is worth the price!
