MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation NC40 Review
Appreciating the commitment you put into your site and in depth information you present. Wonderful read! I just like the valuable information you provide on your articles. Good luck for the following! Hello Dear, are you genuinely visiting this web page daily, if so then you will definitely take pleasant experience.
MAC has been increasing its prices every now and then! I hope its a great match with your skin tone! Great review. I also loved mixing in a liquid highlighter to make it look more glowy. I did tend to get a little oily in my tzone and felt like it didn't last super long on me but I couldn't fault it to be honest, I really liked this foundation and what it did for me compared to the constant fails I would get with drugstore foundations.
Eventually I finished the sample but never bought the full size, I was literally too busy trying out every other foundation in the market and collecting samples. A few days before the wedding I decided to play around with some makeup and decide what look I was going for for the wedding, so I used the Studio Sculpt to get the full picture.
I applied the foundation and realised that something wasn't right, it just wasn't doing the same "magic" I remembered it did a couple of years ago. It was like the colour wasn't right or something, it wasn't mimicking the yellow in my skin like the Nars did. It just looked a bit peachy orange. I was so confused! So I swatched Nars top and Studio Sculpt bottom side by side and saw the big difference, the Nars was so yellow in comparison, I was using the Nars Stromboli all these days and I'd gotten used to how nicely it mimicked the yellow olive in my skin so the MAC simply wasn't yellow enough, who would've thought?

Definitely not me, I thought no one could beat MAC for their yellow undertones. Studio Sculpt was the first high end foundation that I'd ever tried and it was probably the closest to my skintone compared to the rest of the drugstore crap I'd tried. But I didn't have any other high end to compare it to and held it in very high esteem. I may try NC35 to see if it's closer to my skintone.
Stromboli Top NC40 Bottom Comes in a plastic tube, easy to squeeze out nozzle and the amount is controllable. Here's what MAC have to say: Hydrating, instantly revitalizes the skin while keeping it looking smooth, soft and plush. Long-wearing, water-resistant.
Some people find it really thick and cakey, I think it's amount and application method that determines this. If you're going to use a thumb size amount and paint it on your face, you'll probably get a thick cakey finish. I am anti cake, believe me, I would not let another human being set there eyes upon me nor would I step out the house with obvious cakey foundation on.
I use around a pea sized amount and use a damp beauty blender to apply it onto well exfoliated and moisturised skin.
My shade matching issues aside, I personally think this foundation is very good and works well for people who have dry skin or normal skin. You can get very high coverage with this and a little definitely goes a long way. It's an emollient and creamy foundation so it's easy to work with. It has a natural satin finish on me and leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished.
It could do with setting as even on my combination dry skin, it does get a little oily and doesn't last very long. I have been slightly disappointed with MAC recently because of the difference in shades, it's not their fault, I'm quite fussy with my base. I'm yellow olive so I've been finding them a bit peachy orange Mineralize Moisture or too jaundicey yellow Pro Longwear NC42 so I've drifted away from their foundations a little.
On the other hand, I discovered how much I hate the packaging. The squeezy tube may be appealing to others but it is a nightmare for me. Although it can be fairly easy to squeeze the right amount, me being my reckless self, I always squeeze too much and I can never scoop it back up due to the inconvenient tube with a small nozzle.
I find that the SSF does provide medium buildable to high coverage, but does not stay on the face for long. I believe this does look quite natural alone when powdered. However, when I powder over it I tend to find it slips and my blemishes are more visible. You could argue that it makes it look more natural, but I like my foundation to give full coverage and cover my blemishes well even if it does provide a natural finish. So for an every-day natural makeup look I still find it irritating due to this problem and the oiliness. One thing I dislike the most about the SSF is how oily it becomes within a short amount of time.
I found that whenever I use this foundation I have to prep my face with Milk of Magnesia to absorb the excess oil from my T-Zone, and constantly blot my face with sheets or powder. Which brings me onto my next point, setting. When setting this foundation, it requires a little more effort than normal.
I find that I have to take my time setting it well as it does slip and transfer very easily. Another thing I hasten to add is how it oxidises. I do have a few dry patches on my face especially when I have spots, and when I wear this foundation it only seems to highlight it more. I thought I would take photos wearing this foundation in different lighting conditions so people can get a good feel of how this foundation looks normally and when exposed to light.
