I brought this because I was looking for a foundation that would be quick and easy to apply in the morning before work, it sounded like it would give good coverage and wouldn’t feel heavy on my skin. I was using Benefit’s Some Kind-a Gorgeous (and I will review this in another post) which was running low and because it it’s a cream based product it doesn’t last very long and that was my reasoning to finding an alternative as I wanted to find something that would last longer.
I had done some research - I read some reviews and watched a few You Tube videos because my skin is very sensitive I put a lot of thought into buying foundation because of my acne prone skin.
I tried it on in the store, liked the look it gave me (I actually thought it gave me a sheer look which I prefer) and decided to purchase it. What I should have actually done is tried it on, left it a day or two and then brought it if I had no problems. Anyway, enough of the should haves…I wore it on my face for an entire work week and throughout the week, I slowly started to come out in spots, not everywhere just on my chin and by the end of the week, there was lots of clumps of spots all over my chin.
I was so disappointed because I heard no one complain about this product, and I was only hearing the opposite that people really like this product and I hadn’t heard anyone say that it wasn’t good for acne prone skin or that it can bring you out in spots. I wasn’t totally convinced it was the Studio Fix Powder that was doing this, so a couple of weeks ago I decided to try it again, but only for three days this time. And guess what?! It happened again, my chin came out in spots (I still have them now actually and my chin is only just beginning to recover). I decided to go back onto You Tube and do more research and there it was, underneath a Studio Fix Powder review in the comments box that an ingredient in this (isostearyl palmitate) is very comedogenic and was warning people with acne prone skin. Where was this advice when I needed it?
How do you find Mac’s Studio Fix Powder Foundation?
