MAC Studio Fix vs Studio Perfect Powder Foundation
I love both powder foundations! I’ve been using the Studio Fix powder for a few years now, and I really love the coverage it gives without looking heavy on the face. Hands down also to the oil control. It is a bit expensive for a powder foundation but I’ve noticed that a compact will last me for more than 2 years.
On the other hand, I always use the Studio Perfect on under eyes to add more coverage after I put on concealer. What I like about this is that unlike other powders this one isn’t drying, doesn’t make my concealer look cakey, and makes my under eyes look brighter.
