I've been breaking out like mad (for the first time in 5 months) since I started using my new MAC Select Cover-Up and Studio Fix. I'm SO upset because these products make my skin look flawless, but once I wash them off a big ugly breakout (esp. chin & nose) is unveiled. I want to love these products so this is a real let-down for me. I'm giving it another week to see if my skin will adjust, but I don't see that happening. Has anyone else had this problem with MAC?

On another note, I'm loving all the shadows (esp. Tilt!) and the Lipglasses.

I'm sorry the Select Cover Up and Studio Fix are breaking you out!
If it makes you feel any better, Studio Fix broke me out too - not sure what was in it that my skin didn't like, but after a few weeks of wearing, I swear my skin errupted. I couldn't get rid of that stuff fast enough!

Glad you're liking your other MAC goodies though!

Thanks ladies. I'm glad to know it's not just my skin. I'll still give it another week, but I think I'll be back to hunting for the perfect foundation.

Sorry that happend,I know it sucks.It happened to me too,I tried the studio fix last year and i broke out.I tryed to see if it was something else,but as soon as i stopped using it my skin cleared up.I wanted to stay hopefull because it does look amazing on but just didnt work for my skin.

The lip glasses are great though,and love tilt, i just got tilt for my birthday cause i ran out of it .Im still searching for a foundation that wont break me out!

Trisha do you know of any skin friendly foundations?

I love Chantecaille fdtn; both future and real skin fdtn. I also love La Prairie satin fdtn ($65) both brands are worth to buy definitely. I would try Chantecaille first, it is cheaper and same quality

I don't have a Neiman Marcus store nearby but there aren't that many shades of the the Future Skin so it might actually be possible to select the right shade online. It looks really luxurious in the picture! $58 is a lot but I figure I've wasted almost $300 in my search for a good foundation so it might be worth it.

I used to get breakouts from Studio Fix too so I had to stop using it.

I'll probably end up trying it. It looks like such a nice texture.

yeah. mac covers really well and it makes you look flawless at first. but i look too "made up" when i use their stuff. so i have been sticking to tinted moisturizers. since it is think, i do think it can break people out.

Spazbaby you have blue eyes if I am not mistaken? and does the light blue eyeshadow (tilt) look good on you? I am just curious cuz I believe we are both lighter skinned with blue eyes and I wanted to order that one too!

I'm sure it would be good with blue eyes as well. I'm using it with Naked Lunch as base/highlight and a navy eyeliner.
