I have always preferred liquid foundations but when EVERYONE raved about MAC Studio Tech ($27.50), I had to find out what it was all about.
Utilizing a tri-system blend of water, emollients and powder, the Studio Tech comes in MAC’s signature black compact with a sponge on the bottom compartment.
While the foundation looks solid in the compact, it has a creamy texture that goes on smoothly and immediately melts into my skin, leaving behind a natural and semi-matte finish. Coverage-wise, it is on the heavier side so I like to apply it with my MAC 190 Foundation Brush to sheer it out.
The only thing I did not like is the color. I always use NC30 for MAC foundations/concealers but for some reason, this one seems to run a lot darker and looks more orange. It also does not oxidize well so at the end of the day, I always end up looking a shade or two darker – not hot!
