That's a great way to describe Studio Sculpt as a "thicker, moussier texture". It's actually a good way to describe formulas like Tarte Full Coverage Foundation too although that's oil-absorbing and Studio Sculpt is extremely moisturizing. If you want me to pick you up a sample just e-mail me! I LOVE hearing what you guys have to say so thank you for taking the time to let me know what you're thinking! While they're opposite formulas and both suit a very specific type of consumer; both are designed to be flexible enough for everyday wear or professional photo shoots and provide comfortable wear for any type of skin!

Here's how Mac describes Studio Sculpt: "A Luxurious creamy foundation that delivers ultimate hydration while instantly revitalizing the look of dull and dry skin. Innovative Gel-Based system provides outstanding skin feel and medium buildable coverage with a natural satin finish. Micronized silicone pigments improve skin's adherence and blendability while helping to maintain color purity. Comfortable on all skin but especially suited for normal-dry and mature skin.
Studio Sculpt does indeed have an interesting texture and formula. Initially, it's dispensed as a lightweight, yet thick cream which is intriguing consider those aren't attributes you normally see side by side with a foundation. Mac calls it a "proprietary gel" which is a title that's legitimately earned with the unique texture of Studio Sculpt, but texture alone doesn't necessarily guarantee a positive or negative experience with any foundation Application of Studio Sculpt is an absolutely delightful experience.
You can feel free to use a foundation brush, buffing brush, sponge, or your finger tips and you'll get virtually the same results from any method, although because of the thicker texture you probably don't want to use a thin stippling brush. This is a foundation that wants to give you full coverage. It's not difficult to sheer out or blend, but it prefers to be applied with at least medium coverage.
It's not a formula you have to worry about getting cakey or flaky as the day wears on either. What's incredibly unique about Studio Sculpt is that it combines the hydrating and emollient characteristics of many dewy foundations with the tenacity of a traditional long-wearing foundation formula like Estee Lauder Double Wear.
This makes Studio Sculpt a fabulous option for those with dry or combination skin who have always wanted a long-wearing, water resistant formula and find traditional options to be too drying.
Once Studio Sculpt sets, it's virtually budge proof. Mac attributes this to the "micronized silicone" in the formula and interestingly enough, Polymethylsilesquioxane is present in pretty decent amounts. This is the silicone that is used in products like Mally's Poreless Face Defender for it's powdery finish.
Despite the fact that Studio Sculpt has an extended wear time and wears incredibly evenly ; it doesn't set to the traditional matte finish you might expect. Instead Studio Sculpt offers a very "luminous" satin finish that those with dry skin will greatly appreciate.
