My Opinion:
This is my 4th Mac foundation, and so far I've tried MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation (hate it), MAC Studio Tech Foundation (like it) and Mac Select SPF15 (toss it). I'm not in love with any of these foundation, and I haven't repurchase any of those.

I keep on trying new foundation hoping that I might be able to find "the perfect foundation" for myself, but I'm still searching....

Well I've got Mac Studio Fix Fluid mainly for mixing, because I'm usually a NC30 in the summer and NC25 in the winter, and since most of my foundations are slightly too dark for me in the winter, I got this in NC20 to mix.

I've never been lighter than NC25, but recently I found that most of my foundation were too dark for me, so I got this out and decided to use it alone, and *bam* it was the right shade.....

I was expecting this to be the same as Mac Select SPF15, but have noticed that Studio Fix Fluid has got more coverage and it doesn't oxidizes as much as Mac Studio Fix Fluid. I think I like this foundation but not enough to repurchase.
