REVIEW || MAC STUDIO SCULPT FOUNDATION

As some of you may know I'm a complete M.A.C addict! I have religiously purchased Studio Fix Fluid (£21.50) for the past 7 years. I was attracted to the buildable coverage since I've struggled with skin imperfections for such a long time, it's the go to product! I know what people say:-

'that's the worst thing you can do, don't wear heavy make-up, let your skin breathe..' 

blah, blah, blah.. and as much as I know that everyone's heart's are in the right place, it's easier said than done. I always end up stuck in the middle fighting a vicious circle of breakouts & more coverage. It used to really bother me but now as I'm getting a bit older & beginning to care less of what people think I'm confronting my skin issues head on & now that I've got an awesome skin routine courtesy of LUSH I thought that a make-up base change was totally necessary... something less clogging for my pores but I can still get a little more coverage from for a special occasion. 

I'm not normally one for taking the MUA's recommendations in MAC - not because I don't trust their opinion, it's just the place is always packed & I often feel like I'm on an invisible conveyor belt from product to till point, however, on this occasion it was strangely quiet & i actually got the chance to have a good discussion about my make-up needs.

After explaining how heavy my skin feels when I wear Studio Fix Fluid, I tried out some Studio Sculpt Foundation  which felt like a dream. It's a gel based formula with the long-lasting effects I desire. A little luminosity was something I liked the idea of since I'd gone through so many years of using quite a mattifying base & to achieve a dewy look I'd have to recruit another product, most likely a little bit of my gold-dust (well actually white/silver) product Miss Popularity by Benefit which frightening was discontinued, Luckily I've found a few online retailers who still stock it but once it's gone - it's gone

I couldn't wait to try this out properly when I got home, although it was a majorly brave move as I started my new job the next day & really could NOT be doing with a make-up disaster on day 1. By lunch I couldn't believe that I didn't need to reapply my make-up! It's an amazing product for its longevity, this teamed with the fact it's a larger product at 40 ml makes it fantastic value for money too!






which MAC foundation do you love most ?

    2. I'm a MAC virgin but I might need to take a little jaunt to their counter next time I'm home! I use Rimmel Stay Matte mousse foundation, which goes on great and covers me really well - but by about 2/3pm I get all shiney :( xx

  5. I loveee my Studio Sculpt, perfect for those days when you need coverage but nothing too heavy. I tend to use this during the week and then switch to my Double Wear Light by Estée Lauder for the weekends when I want more of a full coverage. Great post, Hollie X

  7. For example, if the tenjō is 1,500, and the variety of games performed the explanation that} final bonus is 1,490, the participant is guaranteed to launch a bonus within just 10 games. The return to participant just isn't the one statistic that's of interest. The possibilities of every payout on the pay table is also be|can be} crucial. For example, think about a hypothetical slot machine with a dozen totally different values on the pay table. However, the chances of getting all the payouts are zero except the biggest one.
