This is probably one of the lifesavers of my month now. I ran out of blot sheets, and we all know that those are essential! SO I ran to MAC and picked this up. It works even better than blot sheets! I think it is medium-mediumdark that matched my NW20 skin. I will use this for like, ever. I took off one lippy because sometimes it can look a bit cakey if you have to put a lot on.
I have used a few MAC products in my time and most have really disappointed me (apart from Tendertones) until now that is. This pressed powder is the only one that really does keep shine at bay for most of the day. I hardly need to touch my makeup through the day maybe twice, which is great since most other pressed powders need to be blotted every two hours or so. There is not much colour transfer to the skin and it really does work. IMO this is the best blotting powder around. Will continue to buy this. A word of warning - the colours are lighter than the name would suggest so buy a darker shade. The fair is actually nearly white!
I am blown away by this. Seriously. If you have not purchased this yet, go out and get it. It's perfect for the summer months. I have dry/combination skin and I absolutely hate having shine on my nose and forehead. Just a swipe with a powder brush takes away all the shine and lasts almost the enitre day for me. It's so portable I can always take it and touch up if needed.
I have very oily skin. This powder kept me completely shine free for about 2-3 hours, and then I had a dewy look. After 4-5 hours, I had to reapply, but that is mighty impressive. LOVE this. It also lessens the look of my large pores so my skin looks so nice. I use the puff that comes with it so it looks a little powdery at first.
Not a day goes by that I do not use my MAC blot for touch ups. It is my hg blotting powder, love that it does not disturb my make up and just absorbs all the oily shine off my face. Thank goodness for MAC blot and I love the medium dark color for my MACNC35 skin tone.
This is officially my HG blot powder i love it! My oily T-zone is under control finally and without leaving that powdery old lady look on my skin! I have tried many different pressed powders, my previous favourite being the Chanel poudre universelle compact but this MAC has now absolutely taken over the position! If they ever discontinue this product i will be mortified!
Love this for my oily T zone! It doesn't accentuate flakes like other powders and gives my skin a nice soft matte look for the first couple of hours and doesn't cake when reapplied. The only thing I'd change is the packaging so that the puff it comes with doesn't sit on top of the powder. The thin plastic insert it comes with is annoying to remove all the time.
I am NC25 and had been using Medium for years. When I started using Medium-Dark, I couldn't believe how much healthier I looked. Medium is OK for me, although it looks a little "cornstarchy" when first appplied. Medium-Dark just blends into my skin, smoothing my pores and keeping me shine-free until lunch. Good stuff.
Love love love this! I always had a problem with oiliness in my t-zone but not anymore. Even though this is a blot powder, I took off one lippie since I wish that it had just a little more coverage. Nevertheless, it goes great with the StudioFix foundation underneath. My skin looks great. Will definitely purchase again.
I have fair-medium skin, but I still bought the medium-dark shade of the pressed blot powder. It does it's job really well - keeping you looking matte and shine-free. The greatest part is that it doesn't get cakey on me like adding more Studio Fix would, all it does is add a translucent layer of powder (unnoticeably) that will absorb the oils on your skin and make you matte again. I have a huge problem with oil. I will put my makeup on in the morning, and by the time I get to school, I will already feel the need to pull out some powder or blotting sheets (1 hour later!!). This made me not need to blot for way longer! At least like 3-4 hours of no blotting. This is a miracle worker for girls with oily skin!
