The Saviour of Foundations...?

I am simply over the moon with this news, OVER.THE.MOON!!

My foundation of choice is MAC Studio Fix Fluid and shade of choice is always been a mix between either NW20 or NW25... I have always found NW20 to be quite porcelain looking and NW25 quite orange so have been dreaming of a day when they would come up with a perfect medium.

TAADAAA! MAC did it!!

They have eventually brought out a shade between the two I use, trust MAC to make my actual dreams come true... they never fail to make me happy! The shade is NW22 and is perfect on my face. I have stopped wearing bronzer for a bit as I have found that's what makes my makeup cakey and instead I go for a translucent powder, blush and highlight. This foundation is perfect because I don't need to bronze my neck any more... WOOHOOO!

I also invested in some concealer for my bag eyes as I don't get a lot of sleep, I like a concealer to be thick and lighter than my skin seeing as it is going on my dark ball sack eye bags I need good solid lighter (in colour) coverage. For this I chose NW20 in the Studio Finish Concealer and so far me loves it!


And here are the swatched.. left is the concealer and right is the foundation... I know they look a total different shade to my hand but you should never go on your hand colouring. Always go for your jawline :-)

Love your faces!!


  1. Yay! I love that they've brought out some in-between shades - it's so annoying when you find a great foundation but they don't have the perfect match for your skin tone. Great review. :)
