Review: MAC Studio Fix (Powder)

I believe I discovered make up at a good age. I’ve known people that started wearing make up when they were 15. I started wearing only eye make up, when I was 17.

I’ve always sworn against foundation. Maybe because I already have clear skin. But I think wearing foundation makes your skin worse. It clogs your pores and if you already have spots it doesn’t make them disappear, it just makes them the same colour as the rest of your skin!

But, as I have an oily T-zone, I was advised by my friends to start using powder. I bought MAC Studio Fix, (NC44.5 is my colour), and although it gets rid of my oiliness when I put it on, it has also managed to clog up my pores. It is great that it actually gets rid of my oily T-zone but I refuse to use it unless I am going out.

But I am amazed that I found any skin product that matches my skin tone exactly! I use Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse foundation (Caramel) as a concealer under my eyes, and even that doesn’t match my skin tone as good as the NC44.5 MAC Studio Fix powder.

So, here is my skin routine in case any of you were wondering.

I use the Botanic Cleanser, Toner and Oil free moisturiser. Then I apply Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse foundation around my eyes. I’ll do whatever eye-look I feel like doing, then I apply my lipstick/lip-tint. Then if I am going out somewhere nice, I’ll apply my MAC Studio Fix powder. Then if I want some blush, I’ll put some on.

I would recommend MAC Studio Fix Powder. But not for everyday use unless you are already used to wearing foundation everyday. If you don’t know what NC number matches your skin, ask for help in a MAC store. The first colour the sales assistant picked up was the right colour, but the ones I picked up were too dark or too light. Don’t be shy! Ask for help!

=D pt 2!

I’m getting into the ‘pt 2’ a lot lately! Maybe that’s what the main aspect of my blog should be?!

Please read ‘=D’ a previous post before you read this!

Today I found out that a friend asked the guy I like if he is single or not, he said, yes! He is single!!
Then she told him that I think he is hot/cute! She said he smiled and blushed! What am I supposed to make of that?!
It could be that he is blushing because he likes me too! (which is the reason I prefer!)
Or it could be that he got embarresed & thinks it’s funny that I think I stand a chance, so turned red as an outcome of holding his laughter in! (very likely). =[

I don’t know which one it is. I hate the butterflies I get whenever I think of him! =[

So please wish me luck & give me suggestions on what to do next!
