MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation

As you may have seen in one of my previous posts i have finally invested in a MAC foundation! I went to get matched up and the sales women asked me a few questions about my skin and in the end i opted for Studio Sculpt Foundation and I was matched to NW20. I have used this quite a few times and thought it was defiantly time for a review! 

Studio Sculpt is a gel-based foundation which I had never even heard of! The texture is lovely and a little goes a long way! It gives you a medium/buildable coverage with a satin finish!
It is very long wearing I wear this to college and it stay on perfectly! Its a lovely texture and feel so soft on your skin, its great for drier skin as its feels a lot more moisturising and doesn't emphasize flaky skin.
I found that my Bobbi Brown foundation brush wasn't the best for applying this and i think it is because it is gel based so its a very different constancy, so i also tried a make up sponge and stippling brush and i found the my KCo stippling brush was a great match to apply this foundation with! 
The foundation has SPF 15 which is a great bonus especially if you live somewhere sunny! (where i live not so much!)

My final thoughts- I really love this foundation, the color matched me very well and the constancy and texture feels lovely!

MAC - £23 (but its worth it! - treat yourself!)


  1. Sounds like a good buy! I have never used foundation but this is great for future reference!

  2. such a great and helpful post :)
    i heard so many good things about it! and I thought about maybe a hundred times, if I should buy it or not. but
    I'm using now the studio fix fluid. :) The woman at the counter said that's better for oily skin.
    but i love mac :D best foundations ever. and it matches so well with the skintone.


  3. Ahh I also own this, and I love it! It has quite a unique consistency

  4. i love this foundation to but i find it better to be used in the colder weather i also have a review on it. im now using the nars sheer glow for the spring and summer then i will be going back to this one in fall and winter.
