MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation in NC37 Review (what is NC/NW?)


For this review,im gonna talk more about MAC foundation which actually confused me ever since i take interest in cosmetics.Im not a fan of MAC,in fact im not a fan of high end product except when the hype was overwhelming or when plenty of beauty gurus rave about it.

I finally bought a MAC foundation because i need a good foundation for my residential college dinner.So i went to MAC Midvalley and i asked for assitance from the beauty consultant and he recommend me this shade.

This is the first MAC product i purchased.Its a 40mL tube and cost about 130++ MYR.That was wayyy to expensive for me,at least for a tube less than 50mL.But i thought a good foundation is a long way to go.Think of it as an investment. :)

If you realize,on the SPF15 there is no +++ sign.Thats mean,this foundation wont protect your skin against the UVA.I didn't know back then. -__- You should use a sunscreen underneath this foundation.

My shade is NC37.

What is NC by the way??

Actually its mean Neutral Cool = Warm.

Which means my skin has a warm undertone,which also make sense because i see that my skin is kind of yellowish.

So thats mean NW = Neutral Warm = Cool.

If your MAC foundation's shade is NW,thats mean you have a cool undertone.

Some beauty gurus describe the 'N' as NOT.

 NC = Not Cool = Warm.

NW = Not Warm = Cool.

How cool is that?lol.

When i first bought it,it looked great,like any other foundation.But over time,i noticed that there's a colorless fluid that squeezed out together with the product.They dont mix so i thought maybe that 'thing' is WATER,but im not sure.

This foundation is thick and it will give an almost full coverage.

Im sorry,there is no swatch.

But here's the end result on my face :P

My apology,the lighting used was mostly yellow and dim light. -___-
Erghhh hotels.

I probably won't use this foundation for daily use,saving it for special events. :D Honestly,im a BB/CC maniac. ;)


(◡ ‿ ◡ ✿) Medium to full coverage
(◡ ‿ ◡ ✿) High quality hehe.
(◡ ‿ ◡ ✿) Thick texture
(◡ ‿ ◡ ✿) Good foundation has a long way to go.


┐(´-`)┌ What the hell is the colorless fluid?
┐(´-`)┌ Pricey. (very)
┐(´-`)┌ its only 40mL.

Does anyone suffer the same colorless fluid thing as me?? :/

Ooohh!!! It's sad to hear that but I've read some great reviews about it and that's on my wishlist for 2013 too... Now it made me skeptical about whether should I go for it or not ....

I wanted to buy this so bad so i got a sample from MAC. They gave me NC30 and NC35 to try out. Too bad i kinda didn't like it. It kinda oxidized on me pretty bad. I am darker than you, and even NC30 made me look orange after a few hours. I don't know what shade to turn to anymore. Maybe Studio Sculpt wasn't meant for my oily skin, but i think it would look great on most other people, including you. :)
