several ppl online said the Mac studio fix fluid drug store equivalent is Revlon color stay...total lie from my experience the other day.  Maybelline fit me foundation is definitely on par and a great deal, with the same amount of coverage as studio fix but feels more lightweight. really came through for me in an emergency.

ok so do i.  i can get dry patches especially on my cheeks which is not the biizness...lol
 
i had to accept that 1) i must use extra moisturizer in my dry areas.  and 2) i cannot apply foundation/concealer in my dry areas with a brush of any sort...
 
so, this means i have to set otherwise the foundation will move around in those non-dry areas.
 
what works best for me is to
 
exfoliate daily
 
(i'm trying to figure out how to tone in this process)
 
i usually use a serum of choice and then pat off lightly with a very COLD microfiber towel.
 
then i use cetaphil as my moisturizer (i am dryer in the winter so i need this) and i DON'T wait for it to sink all the way in before applying/blending foundation/concealer with my fingers ONLY.  (you could probably also use a beauty blender to blend)
 
then i set very lightly in my dry areas and a little more heavy in my oily areas.  i prefer ruby kisses applied with the elf blush brush.  i use just a little of the powder.  i made the mistake of using alot earlier on and experienced the wretched flash face in photos.  pat it on let it sit for a few seconds then dust it off....
 
like i said this works for me...getting my base right.  and keeps me from developing dry patches thru out the day.
 
i will be using the garnier moisturizer gels when it gets hotter because the process above does get a little oily in my oily areas which i don't mind too much...since i can just dust on some skin finish to mattify thru out the day...

Lol.  I mean regular popcorn un-popped kernels.  No bugs at all!



Its very deep so it holds a LOT of filling.  I didn't want to use the little crystal ones because they are like $6 per bag and I used at least 4 bags of the 88cent popcorn in here.  I also wanted something that wouldn't scratch my brushes.  The You-tuber I got this idea from used the same filling so I didn't have to think about it much. 



I have seen decorative popcorn in different colors but you can't even see the filling unless you're standing over it.

I was staring at the before. I couldn't get through it to watch her finish

I leave mine alone. No filling, nothing. The other week I bleached my unibrow lol I was so shocked at how well it worked. I couldn't get to the salon around my 12 hour shifts so I had to improvise

I just want something comparable to studio fix. My covergirl 3in 1 and lumi are good but not as bright. I get so many compliments when I wear studio fix. Im gonna try fit me.

I forgot to say that.  Yes I have seen rice used to store brushes also.  Just make sure its not scratchy.
