    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I use Studio Fix Fluid and have combination, oily/dry skin. It works really well but can look a little patchy if i dont exfoliate often. It has a really good coverage though and if i need to top it up a little, i just put a little Studio Fix powder on that problem area and hey presto, all good again.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I've never used the Studio Tech, but in my opinion, the Studio Tech Powder Foundation is pretty awful, I'm sorry to say. It cakes so easily, provides uneven coverage, is SUPER powdery, is very hard to blend, makes you look like you're obviously wearing makeup, rubs off easily, is EXTREMELY difficult to touch up (which it will need), and changes color randomly within the first few hours of wear. I've tried multiple methods of application: kabuki brush, large domed powder brush, sponge, blush brush, stippling brush, and even fingers! Not a single one of them has provided near to fine coverage. It got returned within the first week. Just for some background info: I have combo skin, and at the time, had a few pimples, one rough patch, and relatively even toned skin. Studio Fix Powder Foundation is definitely not a product I'd recommend.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I have not tried it yet, but I've heard that Studion Fix works better when set with Fix+

    Fix+ helps it kind of "melt" into the skin a bit better, so it prevents that cakey, powedery look.

    Anyone try this yet?

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I'm looking into Studio Fix vs Studio Tech. By the looks of things Studio Tech seems better because it doesn't clog pores - I need something that doesn't because my skin hates anything other than non-comedogenic schtuff!

    I was given Studio Stick when I went to the counter last time (a year and a half ago) but not happy with the white sheen it gives me - maybe that has something to do with the colour!

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    Sorry to hijack forum but if i tried a sample of moistureblend which i found to be a bit slippery on the skin and wiped off very very easily do you think studio tech might be better for me. I have normal to dry skin which is why i tried moistureblend. My closest MAC Counter is 600k's away which makes it hard to try out different MAC products.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    Hi Everyone

    So I'm reading all of the posts and it just dawned on me that I may have been ill advised by a MA..Please let me know what you think...

    I have super oily, acne prone skin. So the MA suggested using select coverage concealer (NC35), Studio Fix Fluid (NC37) and then set it with Studio Fix powder (NC40). Coverage is ok but my face feels heavy at the end of the day...Am I really supposed to use SF powder with the liquid or is there an alternative?

    Thanks!

    That sounds like a combination for someone that needs a lot of coverage because Studio Fix (powder) can be used a foundation alone--that's actually what it is supposed to be. A lot of people use this combo though so if you don't mind, it should be OK, but if you feel it's heavy, make them come up with something else for you.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I'm currently using Studio Tech. I love this foundation. I use the sponge and wet it with Fix + and it goes on so smooth. I set it with Sheer Select Foundation. My skin looks flawless and not powdery as it would with Studio Fix. Studio Fix was the first foundation I ever used and looking back, it did make my face powdery.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I really want to try Studio Tech..I have one question though, what do you ladies use to apply it? I get the feeling using the sponge wouldn't be wise on my acne-prone skin...

    I use the 190 foundation brush. It works really well with this formulation & it's easier than a sponge to rinse out between every application.

    I have the same type of skin and use the same routine. However, instead of using Studio Fix powder I now use the Mineralized Skinfinish Natural. It is much lighter than Studio Fix powder. A drawback though is that I do have oiliness break through throughout the day, so I have to powder about 2-3 times a day. But other than that, I would recommend the Skinfinish Natural over the SF powder.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    Unfortunately studio fix and every other mac foundation breaks me out so badly!! The only foundation of theirs that doesn't break me out is studio tech I love the way it looks and how it feels on my skin, It's actually good for your skin as it has emollients in it.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    I like Studio fix for my skin. I have been blessed with good skin (for now, lol) so the nights I go out with the girls and I want sheer coverage I use the Studio fix, then spray the fix+ and use the 150 brush to blend it.

    Re: studio fix vs studio tech

    The MA recommended Studio Fix for me and for awhile, it worked well, but now I'm finding that it's too dry/cakey for me. I have normal/combo skin but it makes my nose extra shiny and everywhere else too dry. Weird. I dont know if I want to try Studio Tech. I might go back to tinted moisturizers.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Studio Tech. Perfect for my skin. I tries Studio Fix on accident one time when the saleswoman gave me the wrong product. To be honest, I HATED IT!!! But what works for one person may not work for another. Never heard of the Select that someone else mentioned. Would love to know more about it. I have oily skin, living in such a humid environment, but hey, at least I don't have to worry about wrinkles for awhile. LOL. MAC is an awesome, awesome line. Most of my make-up is Mac but is it just me or do their lip glasses seem to not last long enough, even the ones you're not using? LOVE NARS lip gloss too. AWESOME!!!!!
