MAC Studio Fix Foundation

One of the most basic, fundamental, and also in my case necessary makeup items is foundation. Flawless looking skin is something all women try to achieve. I finally decided it was time to update my foundation routine and upgrade to a foundation other than the ones I find at the drugstore. The MAC Studio Fix Fluid is perfect for me. Maybe its because of past teenage skin insecurities or just personal preference, I really like a full coverage foundation. The Studio Fix Fluid is just that! This foundation provides a "natural matte finish and medium-buildable coverage", just like I like. The matte finish is amazing. My skin looks like it has been airbrushed and is shine free, maybe because it also absorbs and disperses oil. Awesome, right? I don't know how many other foundations seem to absorb into my skin throughout the day, causing my face to look like a hot mess by the end of the day. Well, this product sure doesn't do that. Just add a little setting powder and you're good to go. MAC claims the foundation "contains specially treated micronized pigments and soft-focus powders for a super-smooth look that helps minimize the appearance of imperfections". This is like music to my ears. I really don't have any major imperfections, but its good to know that if a pimple suddenly appears, I have this tool in my bag. I have some colored spots and freckles from sun exposure, and this product is great for making my skin looking completely even. This foundation also contains protection from UVA/UVB with a SPF of 15. This is a key element for me. I never leave the house without a moisturizer that contains a SPF and now my foundation also contains it too. This foundation is also oil-free so it won't clog your pores!

can you see where it was applied? complete, flawless coverage
As you can see this is the perfect match for my skin. This is the first time I have ever come across a foundation so close to my natural skin tone. I was so happy the girl at the MAC store helped me find this, which is such a plus that there is always experts there to help. I've been applying this foundation with a foundation brush. I may also try some other methods to see if those work better or not. Just thought I'd let you all in on my new favorite foundation. The price of this foundation is $27.00 and you can buy it at your local MAC store or online. What foundation do you currently use?
