MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation

I finally caved in and brought MAC's Studio Fix Fluid, I've wanted this for absolutely ages and I think I mainly wanted it after watching Swalkermakeup's videos although she never shows how she applied it she always had amazing flawless skin and I like the way it looks on many other people.

Although I own the Select fluid foundation which I thought was amazing, I didnt realise Studio is such a heavier coverage ,which I want. I kinda wish I never brought select now and went striaght in with Studio because the coverage is what I wanted from Select but didnt get. Dont get me wrong, Select is a great medium coverage but I find Studio is a lot quicker of getting high coverage.

The foundation is a thick liquid that one pump is enough for medium coverage and two is full. 
I got my colour in NC15 despite in Select being NC20, I've found that NC15 is extremely similar to NC20 but Studio Fix Fluid oxidizes so you need a lighter colour than you normally need but trust me when the MAC girls will hook you up with the correct colour for you.

I use either a foundation brush or my F80 to apply this on a daily basis or if I am in need to cover everything up which I shall be doing for prom I will be using a Duo Fibre brush.

It takes a lot for this to blend as it is very thick but this blends out to a lovely finish. It is a matte finish which means due to its coverage you need to apply either a blush or bronzer. The MAC artist put some bronzer on me to show me how to define the face and give you some colour other wise you look very bland and only one colour which isnt natural in the slightest. 

I love this foundation. I love the finish and the coverage. I  know many think if you were heavy coverage your fake and cakey but its only fake when you get the wrong shade and you apply it awfully. I try my hardest to blend to avoid tidelines. Another plus to this product as it has not broken me out at all, thats not to say it wouldnt for you but I have combination skin if that is any consolation.
The only bad thing about this is probably that it does transfer so you have to be careful to not rest your head on your sleeve or something like that haha!
This is me wearing one layer of it!

I really recommend it, it is £19.50 and can be brought at MAC cosmetics or in some department stores.
Have you tried this foundation, what is your favourite foundation at the moment?
