Don't buy/use this foundation!!!

At first that I bought this foundation i was so impressed with the coverage and how my skin looks after applying it on my face so I kept on using it for 2months but after few weeks i've been starting to notice that im getting pimples so i stopped my cleanser,  moisturiser etc.  I stopped everything that im using but I still kept on using this foundation because it can hide my acne.  I tried different products,  my acne keeps on getting worse every week.  That's only when I realised that this foundation caused my really bad acne. Before I used this foundation my skin was really nice and smooth.  I will never use this again.  Now,  i just went to my GP And started drinking minocycline and putting ointment in my acne it is now getting better but the acne scars that it caused by this foundation maybe months or years before it will disappear! I am really disappointed and really regret using this foundation!! NEVER AGAIN!!

Not sure!
Soooo, after watching so many youtube videos and reading numerous reviews about this foundation, i realised that this might be worsing my acne as I was suffering from it prior to start using it.. but lately my acne was so bad! I was using this foundation daily for work for almost 3 years because of the great smooth natural coverage..i was having so many closed comedones that will eventually turn into big pimples or i would extract them and cause post hyperpigmentation and then they'll reappear again, an unending cycle .. so i decided to stop using it and at the same time I started using tretinoin .05% cream .. thanks to Allah I'm clear now, I'm so grateful to fiiiinally have clear skin after 9 years of suffering and trying so many products.. this is really emotional.. I was suffering from acne cosmatica "it's a medical term that's used to describe the acne that we get from using makeup" google it and look into the pictures you might be suffring from it as well. So I can't say for sure that mac foundation was the reason of my acne because I don't know may be I would still be clear just by using the retin a without stopping using the foundation.. I felt strange when i stopped using this because i was soo in love with the coverage but i sacrificed the coverage to get the clear skin that i want.. thanks God I was right, i don't need foundations anymore now that I'm clear..

Way to heavy
Too heavy and it had these little sparkles in it. That probably what caused my breakouts when I was using this. Also gave a white cast people told me.

Not worth the disaster and dermatologist bills afterwards
Amazing coverage and flawless Hollywood star picture effect, however the 'price' you have to pay for. After using this product for about the months - on and off..OMG my skin is so bad. Breakouts everywhere and a few cystic acne as well. I have had clear skin all my life and this breakout is really really bad to the point that I am stresssed out and embarrassed to go out. It took me sometime to figure out what was causing the breakout and am glad I finally did. During Christmas I stopped using the product as I was home for a week and my skin was better. I used it twice last week and my face is on full on breakout mode again. Now it's apparent which product is the culprit. As for the scar, I am using Estée Lauder synchronised recovery serum - has been using for 6 years now and it has once again proven its value, its worth every penny. Conclusion ditch the studio fix - not worth the disaster afterwards.

Real-life photoshop, but the consequences are terrible
I wish I hated this foundation. It's the only one that looks like actual perfection on my skin, it covers everything (I suffer with acne -not cystic- and a looooooooot of post-acne red spots that once they're left behind, they legitimately never fade). I can't describe how beautiful it looks on the skin. But once it's removed, the next day I started getting red areas across my face, which have turned into numerous painful acne as well as blackheads and pus-filled pimples. After 2 weeks of application, my skin is finally calming down with reactions. Unfortunately, as I said, the post-acne spots never fade on me as I'm white as snow, I'm bound to left with those ugly reminders of this foundation even after acne is completely gone.

Higly comedogenic, clogs n break you out
I am user of Mac studio fix fluid foundation n it's biggest fan. If looks damn beautiful on skin, gives full coverage n makes your face look like a perfectly painted canvas but the worst part comes later. It breaks you out like hell. It took me two years to understand the cause of my breakout. I never broke before, it was just like once in a blue moon concept. I got married in 2012, thenafter I started using Mac for beautiful coverage. It made me braekout with big huge cysts. But it was too hard to believe as their makeup artist claimed that it can't breakout any kinda skin. Then I got pregnant in 2015 n gradually stopped using that much makeup I.e. Mac studio fix. Within few days my acne cleared n my skin looked clean. Since then I stopped using Mac foundations n my skin is free from acne completely. Now m in search of equivalent beautiful foundation especially which gives yellow finish just like mac but with no breakout. Plzz suggest Regards

Coverage wasn't great, clogged pores
I bought this after seeing it is classed as a full coverage foundation. The coverage I would say was medium, my redness showed through and if I leave it on too long it did cause spots in my problem areas.

Breaks me out
I can't say i didn't help me to coverage my acne/scars, it have a really good coverage, but it feels kind of heavy, but it looks amazing when you put it in your skin, looks natural with one layer. After weeks, it breaks me out so badly, now I have pimples in my cheeks and in my forehead, I will buy another foundation, and return this. Very disappointed.

If you want to f**k your face, go get this
So. I'm giving it two starts just cause it has an amazing shade palette and I love the consistence and also the coverage is amazing. When you don't have acne prone skin, go get this for sure. But if you have, don't buy it. I went in Mac being considered that I will buy the best make up that I can and I asked for something that can cover. She gave me studio fix. Yes it was perfect color and covered everything. And yes in one week I had perfect pimples all over my face 😂 I didn't realize it's the make up and I continued using it another 2 months until I realize that I'm doing something wrong with the make up. I stoped using it and everything got fine. So for me never again :) but quality is nice.
