Currently my go-to foundation...
Here's what MAC has to say about Studio Fix Fluid:
A modern foundation that combines a natural matte finish and medium-buildable coverage with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15. Comfortable and long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. Applies smoothly, builds coverage quickly and easily. Contains specially treated micronized pigments and soft-focus powders for a super-smooth look that helps minimize the appearance of imperfections. Absorbs and disperses oil. Contains special skin-conditioning ingredients. Oil free.

This foundation was recommended to me through MakeupAlley when I posted on the message boards in regards to getting a similar look as Kim Kardashian's flawless matte skin. (see photo)
A couple of the suggestions were MUFE HD and Estee Lauder Double Wear but this one had the most votes so I decided to give it a try and I am SO glad that I did. 0:)
This foundation gives me a smooth, flawless, matte complexion. I apply this foundation with my MAC 187, MAC 181, or my beauty blender sponge (but I do prefer the latter, it blends in perfectly.) When worn, the color stays the same, no oxidation or turning orange. It really does wear for an extended period of time; even longer than the eight hours it promises! I think that is what I love the most about it -- I've had it on since 11 AM and as I am typing this, it is 2:00 AM and my foundation still looks fresh. Only issue that I have with this is that it does not stay completely matte in my T-Zone, even after setting it with my MAC MSFN and my Thebalm Sexy Mama oil-controling powder... but the shine doesn't come until hours into the wear, and it is minimal. Not that big of a deal.

All in all, this is a fantastic foundation and I highly recommend this if you haven't found your HG matte foundation. It is absolutely gorgeous. I don't know why there isn't any hype with this. It is just amazing! And for $26 USD, you can't go wrong! Now I am really regretting having spent so much money on all of those high-end foundations that I've tried ($42 + up! Yikes!)
My question to you: Have you tried this foundation, and if so what are your thoughts? If not, which matte foundation do you find works best for you?
Until next time dolls,
