Who has used MAC's Studio Fix Powder Foundation? I have used it and it seems like everyone I talk to happens to use the shade NC45 or NW45. I use C7. It's not a color I would have chosen for myself, but it seems to work.

What shade do you guys normally use, and when you got matched for a foundation (not just Studio Fix), do you think the salesperson made the right choice?

I get C7 for winter and NC45 for the summer or just the bronzer. If the C7 doesn't work maybe look at C8 .have you tried the liquid foundation?
Personally I hate MAC foundation. It's definitely not for everybody. This was the first foundation I wore when I started wearing department store makeup and it is not good for my skin. I don't think they have a good formula for black skin at all, because we tend to be more oily. I advise everyone I know to try something different if they are not 100% satisfied with studio fix and those that do change enjoy positive results.
I use NC45 it works fine for me. I tried Chanel make-up and that was the worst experience EVER. My face was broke out for 2 weeks!
Well the NCs are cool tones and the NWs are warm tones so it depends on your skin to determine which one is best for you. A few years ago I was matched to NW45 and I had been using the powder which matches my skin PERFECTLY, but the powder rubs off on everything! I was always scared to hug someone or touch my face. I found that it didn't really absorb the oil on my face which was the purpose. One of my girls got me to try the Studio Fix Fluid in the same color and it's a huge difference! I never worry about it rubbing off and it sets better to me. I use a foundation brush I bought from MAC and use 5 lines that I just brush into my skin. The fluid lasts 10 times longer because I use so little. Because I work for a large corporation I like putting on less makeup in the morning and adding shadow and lipstick after work with little to no touchups. The MAC artist definately matched me perfectly. I also use a kabuki brush and brush a little of the studio fix powder over it to set. The fluid absorbs the oil and I look amazing, like my skin is perfect and I barely have makeup on.
I used to use this stuff long time ago but it broke me out terribly. I am not a fan of foundation except for special occasions. Ihave a fear of becoming "makeup dependent". What i fell in love with is the bare escentuals it is virtually fool proof and I get so many compliments when i do wear it. not to mention it is gentle to my skin and my pores don't feel clogged when I wear it .
same thing happened to me...I only use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends translucent powder...I have nice skin so I don't much coverage just something for the shine...I love looking fresh faced not made up...I also you their Healthy Skin Blends blush
Prescriptives really dried my face out. By the late afternoon my face began to peel but that is what my dad's wife wore (she is white) so that is why they bought me. Now that I am on my own I wear mac because it's trendy it does my face just fine. Also, you can get your make up done for free on weekdays and it's only $50 purchase on weekends. But be careful because sometimes they OVER do it!

I like the shade that I use, it seem blends with my skin, so I'm happy with it. What makes it hardest for me choosing foundation is the fact that I'm brownskinned, but my yellow/gold undertones are so strong. I haven't tried any of MACs liquid foundations yet because they all seem a little too red. I've also tried Prescriptives sheer foundation in Yellow/Orange Cocoa, and it's okay, but it separates by the end of the day. Ew. You guys will think I'm crazy, but I use Mabelline's Mineral Power Liquid Foundation in Toffee. To me, the formula is REALLY good. I was surprised by the quality.

But, I hear that Makeup Forever's HD foundation is the business.
