MAC Cosmetics : Studio Tech

For me, hitting the pan on this little number is a sad day. Studio Tech by MAC Cosmetics is my favourite beauty product, in the world, like ever! Anybody who knows me knows that I live by this stuff. I have been using Studio Tech for absolutely years, I cannot even remember when I first started using it. I'd take a guess that I was about 18-19?! So a good 10 years now. As soon as I run out, I'm straight into my local MAC store to stock up! I'm not happy with my make up unless it involves Studio Tech.. THAT is how much I love this stuff!

I use it daily, as part of my foundation base and then carry it around in my handbag for touch ups throughout the day/night.

It comes as a round compact, in the famously sleek, black, MAC packaging, complete with mirror for touch ups and a sponge for application.

MACCosmetics say..
'Totally tech. A tri-system blend of water, emollients and powder. Looks solid, glides on as a soft, creamy emulsion. Provides a natural matte, powder-perfect finish. Smooth to blend, easy to work with: provides a full range of coverage. Light diffusing; softens lines, creates a fresh flawless finish...' -

Have I mentioned how much I love this product? ;) After applying my BB/CC cream, foundation and bronzer, I 'set' my make up base with Studio Tech, by 'patting' the foundation onto my skin, with the sponge applicator. It conceals any blemishes and finishes my base perfectly for a beautifully flawless look. There are many other 'cream to powder' compacts out there, but none, in my opinion, live upto MAC's. They're either too creamy or too greasy. I've yet to find a finish as good as the one I get with Studio Tech. You can wear it alone by smoothing the foundation onto bare skin (with the sponge or using a foundation brush), or finish your base by gently patting on using the sponge. The consistency is perfect, creamy to touch, and sets to a matte finish, giving a naturally made up look, with full coverage.  I don't think I'll ever stop using it. It's definitely a staple piece in my collection!

Would I recommend it?
Yes definitely, add it to your make up routine and see what you think! I can't think of anything I dislike about it, except that theres never enough!! Use it on it's own for a light, fresh faced natural look, or build up a full coverage over your foundation. It's perfect for keeping in your handbag for touch ups on the go.

Would I re-purchase?
Over and over again! In fact, I ran out just this morning and raced out to get another.. Also realised that I'd had 6 empty MAC containers to take back so managed to pick up a cheeky lipstick too! 

MAC Cosmetics Studio Tech is available to purchase online or in MAC stores in a huge range of shades (images show NW20) at £25.
