Mac's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

So I've had my eye on Mac's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, it's actually been sat in my safari list on my phone so I didn't forget which one I had been looking at. It's a powder and foundation in one with medium to full coverage, now I'm not sure if this is just me but I don't see how a powder has a full coverage, maybe it depends on how you apply it? I'm not sure but I was intrigued to try this as it's described as a foundation I thought this could be ideal on the days where I don't wanted to wear a liquid foundation but I still want something on my face.

Anywhooo I went into Mac last week and I got matched up with NW25 which is actually darker than the Mineralize powder I have in light plus, I slyly think it wasn't right for me from the start but I do use it. It was applied with the 135 large flat powder brush and when I looked in the mirror I could see it immediately went matte and the colour was just exactly what I wanted, not too pale and not too dark.

It didn't take much persuasion to buy it. I've been using it every day since I bought it after I've applied a little foundation where needed (mainly to my cheeks just to even out my skin tone) as a slight setting powder or to add a little colour. I have combination skin which is so frustrating especially in the warmer weather I really struggle to find anything for day to day use that will stay or control the oil more. I do find myself having to reapply this throughout the day or use the Prep+Prime transparent powder maybe once or twice but it depends what I'm doing that day but this may be just my natural oils.

If you are looking for a powder foundation I would recommend this, it's great for on the go use as it's a little compact with a mirror and sponge underneath, I haven't yet applied it with the sponge as I'm not sure how I feel about them but go buy it !

Have you tried this before? Can anyone recommend something to control my oily skin more?
