The scrub in question does both of this but because it is coconut oil based it also nourishes and makes my skin glow w...

M-A-C studio fix foundation

M-A-C studio fix foundation
​I must admit that I was a bit to quick to judge this foundation in a review I did some time back. I blasted It for not having the staying power I expected. Well whereas that may still be true, I can't deny the other great qualities-its creamy consistency for one, also how easy it is to blend it, using either my fingers or a beauty blender.
