Review: MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation
I purchased this foundation online about three weeks ago and I’ve been using it pretty much daily ever since! I really really like it. Let me break it down for you why!
(Also you may have noticed that my hands are looking a bit roughed up--new kitten probs.)
The Studio Sculpt comes in a small, chic-looking plastic tube. I find it quite easy to squeeze the correct amount onto the back of my hand. If you are someone who takes the product right out of the container and puts it onto a brush or sponge, this might be a little bit more trouble for you.
This foundation has a gel-based formula, which makes it very thick and creamy. I’ve also found that a little goes a long way! Only a small amount is needed to give my face medium-to-full coverage. While it covers very well, it doesn’t go on cake-like and it doesn’t make my dry patches look flakey. It really looks like a second skin so my complexion looks naturally even, moisturized, and glowy. My skin is naturally very red-toned so I love the coverage on this foundation!
MAC offers many different shades for pale and dark, warm and cool skin tones! I'm using shade NW20, the second lightest option for warm skin tones. I don't live anywhere near a MAC store so I had a bit of trouble matching myself by searching through swatches online. Luckily my foundation turned out to be a perfect match!
After a few uses I noticed that the oily parts of my combination skin were emphasized with this foundation. I offset this with a bit of powder in those areas and so the problem was easily solved! However, if you have very oily skin you might prefer to use a matte foundation, as the oil really shows up with the Studio Sculpt.
It also stays on for a very long time. I have no trouble wearing it for a full day of school or work (and I work in a humid pool!)
Overall, I think this is definitely worth the money and I’ll most likely be repurchasing it when my tube runs out!
You can purchase the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation for $33.00 here. I apply it with a kabuki brush. Let me know if you’ve tried this and how you liked it, and if not if you'd like to!
