Lately MAC has been launching new collections so very often… I am new to MAC, I have a few eyeshadows and their Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, and that’s about it. So I am trying to get on the bandwagon. MAC has a lot of interesting products and in my opinion the prices are not that high at all. Especially since they dropped their prices on eyeshadows, I am definitely adding more to my collection. But today we are talking about MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder. This is one of recently launched permanent item. I was so excited it is PERMANENT.

And you know what, none of those are false. And this doesn’t happen very often. Most of the time when you have a list of key claims, half of them would be I don’t know… just empty promises. After testing it out for a week, I was quite excited to admit that I am not disappointed, more than that I am enjoying using the MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder.
For those of you who would like to know the ingredients before buying the product, in case you’re allergic to anything:
It is available in 9 shades: from Extra Light to Extra Deep. I got the Extra Light. Light and Light Plus seemed to have some sort of a peachy pink hue, which I stay away from in my powders and foundations. The Extra Light is neutral.
I was worried it will look ghostly white on me, but it didn’t. Since it is a sheer coverage powder, the color doesn’t really show up on your skin. The Extra Light actually looks like a translucent powder when blended out.
MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder personal overview
It is finely milled. Goes very smooth and silky. Smoothes your skin and the appearance of your pores. Photographs very good, with no white cast. Didn’t dry me out. Very lightweight. My sensitive skin didn’t react in any way to this powder.
In the photo below, notice how it smoothes the surface of my finger? That’s how it polishes and brightens up your skin too:
One of its point forte is oil control. Amazing job! I apply the tiniest amount possible to set my makeup and it works so well. I get shiny on my T-Zone when I hit the 6 hrs wear mark, but I don’t look like a grease ball at all. My T-Zone just gets that dewy look. The result may vary of course. It also depends on the foundation I pair this powder with. The combination of Revlon Colorstay Foundation Combination/Oily + MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder in Extra Light gives me the best result at the moment. It might change of course, cause I always try new foundations…
The packaging is sleek and travel friendly. I love the design! Looks exactly like the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation, right? Your brush can easily curve into with no more spills or mess. And you see the actual cap? It is made to hold the powder not getting all over the container. In the picture the container looks a bit messy but that was totally my fault, an accident happened while I was taking pictures :) Oops.
MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder. FINAL THOUGHTS
I am totally pleased with my new loose powder. Great product. Fabulous design. Great performance overall. Kudos MAC. I hope you keep this powder as it definitely became a staple in my everyday makeup.
MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder has my seal of approval. If you are looking for a lightweight loose powder, that polishes your look and keeps your foundation in place for the whole day… This is it. Definitely worth the money.
