MAC Studio Fix Fluid-Review-ish
I have been collecting small purchases over the past few weeks that i have not blogged about. One of the items is the coveted MAC Studio Fix Foundation (NC15). I have read a ton of reviews, both either good or bad. Many people rave about this coveted foundation and others simply dislike it for one reason or another.
Well, I am sort of new to MAC. The very first thing I tried was the Studio Fix Powder foundation, and although the coverage was luxurious and lovely, it did not go well with my skin. Within 3 days, I had massive acne =/
Another item i tried before is theif gel liners. I got a reaction to it, and my eyes burned and itched like craxy, so there goes the fluidline =( Luckily, I re visited it and it worked well, so i am assuming i can now use it, however, i am still a bit skeptical. Ok on with the acutal topic lol!
So, I went to the MAC counter a few weeks ago and ended up buying a few items. One of them was the foundation, and needless to say, I was happy happy happy, loved the coverage and was very shocked that the color they suggested was NC15 O.O which i think was too light, but acutally it worked out good!
So I have been using this every day for the past 10 days or so. Just a tiny bit, as full coverage is not needed on a daily basis. The end result???????????
A face FULL of ACNE =( I noticed a couple of days ago that i had massive breakouts all along my jaw line and my forehead, and a few on my temples and cheeks. i wanted to blame every single cosmetic i own, but sadly, i knew what caused it. I only use BB creams, EveryDayMinerals foundation, MAC MSF and some EDM Veils...so there, i have a face full of acne and i hate it. on a happy note, this foundation will cover them all lol!
Idk why i break out. the MSF and blushes have never broken me out, but foundations have. I also have the Studio Fix Concealer and no problem. I wanted to try their face primer but now i am afraid to...although the Fix + does not break me out (well not in the winter lol)
So, do you guys have good experiences with MAC? Are there any Foundations you recommend? I am sort of tired of BB Creams and Minerals, but it seems like this is all i am bound to wear =/
