According to my MAC sales associate, Studio Sculpt is a full-coverage foundation (the MAC website says medium, buildable to full) that looks as natural as skin. She went on to say that it’s very good for dry skin, and actually hydrating. Supposedly it will improve your skin’s moisture level up to 21% in three weeks of use. (Not sure how they measure that.)
Studio Sculpt has a gel texture and dries down to a satin finish. It’s long-wearing, water-resistant, and contains SPF 15. (Is it good for photos? Not as good as Studio Fix, says my source.) Studio Sculpt is $28, and that tube holds 40 ml.
Based on arm swatches, I think I’m a NW20, but as you’ve probably heard me say before, I prefer the sheer coverage of MAC Face & Body (in which I wear N1).
