Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I know this is years later but I found this blog post to be really helpful. I was on the search for a new foundation and yet again people were trying to put me in darker shades and the wrong skin tones. I am from Kerala, India. Plz suggest me a product number for my skin for my marriage. I am totally confused.
I am a medium colored skin tone wheatish. I am super pale and neutral and sometimes i look more pink others more yellow. Im recently new to Mac esp and am loving their products but trying to buy foundation from them is not fun and always ends up disappointing. My first purchase was the mineralize foundation and the girl matched me NC15, looked fine in the incredibly low lit store, once i got to my car holy orange oompa loompa face.
Next i went to try the studio fix fluid, matches this time to NW10 which actually was perfect but hated how the foundation sat on my skin. Returned it and what do you know thats their only line that has NW Next was the Matchmaster found. And lastly just bought the Pro longwear waterproof which i LOVE the product but was matched at NC20 this time which sounded off obv since my perfect is NW10 n even when i said so she said it was perfect and its so awkward i just bought it.
Once again a tad too much orange. Like i said exhausting, between the color never being right and the awkwardness when i want something other than what the mac mua suggests im about to just throw in the towel and look for a diff brand. Esp since ive wanted to try the pro longwear concealer for so long now but they dont have one even close to as light as me.
