I thought I was upgrading from my mainstay CoverGirl powder, partly because this product is ridiculously expensive for essentially the same thing. The only difference aside from price? This stuff breaks me out like crazy! I thought my skin was just upset by a change in cleanser, but after some testing and remembering when I had bought this, I discovered it was the culprit. As soon as I quit using this, my skin returned to normal. The case may look a lot more slick than the CG one, but I'll gladly cut out 2/3s of the price for a lime green case and zero blemishes.

If you're an oily gal, just buy it. You'll love it.
Haven't been without a MAC blot powder compact since I was a youngster.
Perfect powder, awesome compact. Lightweight, SUPER matte without being flat, next to perfect oil control. Builds flawlessly so if you need to touch up you don't LOOK like you've touched up.
The ONLY bad thing I can say about it is its very fragile. My powder ALWAYS shatters within the first couple weeks of having it. But of course I can't say for sure that's the powders' fault...either way, 5 star (or lipstick) product for sure.

I am so oily without this I look like the back of a spoon! I only use on my t zone as if used on whole face I feel I look to flat, it's pretty much colourless so it won't matter how many times you apply throughout the day! I am a hairdresser & the heat from hairdryers does test my makeup a great deal, I probably sweep this over my face every 4 hours! It always in my make up bag & the mirror in the compact is super handy! I use my RT powder brush to apply!

Love! This powder keeps shine and oil away for the entire day. It also works well over foundation without looking really cakey. Will definitely repurchase.

This powder is wonderful for us oily skin ladies. I always have one in my purse and it is great for mid-day touch-ups. I use the color medium-dark and I have nc30 skin. Love that it is a small-ish compact, it comes with a puff (I use a travel kabuki instead), and it has a nice mirror. I will definitely repurchase.

I have tried lots of powders but this is the best I have found for oily skin. Looks nice, controls oil and lasts a long time.

My T-zone is ridiculously oily. It is baaaad. After an hour and a half I am always needing to blot. BUT with this powder I don't have to blot until about 3 and a half to 4 hours which is literally incredible for me. Also, this does not break me out. Although, I don't think this comes with enough product for the price. I have used this everyday for a month and just noticed some pan showing.:/

•very good oil control
•not cakey
•does not break me out

•not a lot of product
•the puff is useless after one wash

P.S go one shade darker then what you think. This powder runs light.

My favorite blot powder compact! This stuff truly blends into your skin, leaving behind no white cast (as long as you get the right shade; they're all pretty translucent, though) and doesn't emphasize my pores or flakes like many other powders do. This is a must-have for those with oily skin.

My mom actually bought this for me a few years ago, when I first started getting in to makeup.

I have oily, acne-prone skin, and I haven't had any issues with this powder breaking me out. I have a yellow skin tone and a fair to medium complexion. The MUA at the MAC counter gave me the medium dark powder. It's weird because it's really not very dark. The powder is actually a tad bit darker than my skintone, but I don't mind because most of my foundations are a tad too light for me anyway, so it kind of works out :).

This powder has good oil control, I don't get as oily when I use this powder. I didn't really notice how good it is with oil control until I used other powders and noticed how oily I got using those.

I use this as my setting powder and I don't actually use this to touch up during the day. When I first apply it, it very slightly mattifies my face but it doesn't completely change the finish of your foundation. It wears okay during the day, doesn't look terrible at the end of the day but doesn't look better either.

The packaging is very nice. You don't have to worry about this compact opening up in your purse, and it has a nice sized mirror. It also comes with a puff that I've used before, but I prefer applying it on with a kabuki brush.

Overall, I really do like this powder. I actually hit pan on it and plan on repurchasing it when I'm done, I think I will get the shade medium though. I recommend this for anyone looking for a powder with good oil control.
