This is the perfect coverage for me. It's not too light and not to heavy. I prefer to apply it with a brush than the sponge that it comes with. It also lasts very long as I only apply it in the morning and don't have to touch up all day. Works great with the Mac facial mist/spray. But I sometimes use baby powder after applying which I find sets it in well too. I alternate between this and the liquid, this is however much quicker to apply than the liquid foundation from MAC. I'm NC45 and it's sometimes hard to get stock of this as it's quite a popular shade it seems.

I use this dry with just a powder brush, or with some fix+ spray and a buffing brush - it provides light to medium coverage. However, it can be a bit drying for some skin types and for the price point, I tend to shy away from it. I have used it as a setting powder a few times but I found that many drugstore products can be used to achieve the same finish. once again, the service that I receive in store weighs heavily on my willingness to repurchase.

This is hands down the best powder I have ever used. It keeps my make up matte the WHOLE day, without having to reapply it. I typically don't really like a lot of powders as they end up making my face look chalky, but this one doesn't. I don't like using the applicator sponge it comes with, as I find it makes your make up look a bit 'cakey'. But if you use a big powder brush it goes on, and stays on like a dream.

This truly is the best face powder you'll ever use! It is however a bit pricey but you pay for quality. It keeps your skin shine and oil free for hours on end! This is definitely something every woman needs in her handbag! Love it!

Personally I love this product. It's very gentle on the skin and lasts for the duration of the day. If I'm going out for the evening and don't feel like re-doing my makeup, I just put some of this pressed powder on my T-zone to freshen up my look and I'm good to go. Although it's pricey I wear makeup everyday and I can almost use one for a whole year - so it gives you bang for your buck. I do find though like some below it can make your face a little oily. but that has more to do with my skin than the product itself.

It's not like some other powders that make your skin look flaky and dried out. It gives great coverage - especially if you use a primer beforehand!

I find it a bit pricey and it tends to make me shiny as the day progresses but I love what it does to my complexion. It gives me a flawless look and a glow that makes me feel like a million bucks.

Being one of my first ever make-up splurges at the tender age of 18, this unassuming compact has remained a staple in my beauty box for six years and counting.
I was never foundation-friendly, being a brown girl at varying degrees on different parts of my body, I avoided the "ombre" look along my face & neck like a plague!
Furthermore, I despised the diluted pasty texture of foundation and always preferred wearing minimal make-up, so naturally, this product ticked all the boxes!
A light-weight powder with a dash of tint, this product provides medium coverage without the cake, the crease or the crack!
Simple enough to apply on the go and sophisticated enough to fit in any bag, this is the ultimate powder.
It has a long-lasting matte finish whilst still allowing your skin to breathe. It can be used on its own for a natural look without the shine or as a setting powder.

My only advice is that when looking for a match, take lighting into consideration. MAC stores generally use white light, so the shade can sometimes differ from what it looked like when it was applied in store.

My favorite powder foundation, it takes away the shine in the skin when reapplied during the day. It doesnt make my face feel dry and I love my colour.
Can take it anywhere. If I'm late or feel like going for a natural look, I just use it, it doesnt cover all my spots but it makes my skin look beautiful.

I have always struggled to find the correct foundation colour for my skin tone- I would be very fair in winter and brown considerably in summer, so I was always having to buy new a new foundation for different seasons...until I stumbled upon this powder foundation! It matches my skin tone perfectly and I no longer have to worry about standing out like a sore thumb! I am able to blend it perfectly with my liquid foundation and it doesn't give that caked looked either! Though a little pricey, it is MAC after all and 100% worth it! Its a definite must from me.

This delightful 2 in 1 provides buildable coverage without stealing the glowy, yellow undertone of my skin. As a brown girl, perfectly coloured foundation is a rare match which is why I appreciate my MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation so much more. It blends well, does not elicit breakouts and offers a natural finish. There is no caking, no chalking and absolutely no two toning!
