I use this product to set my foundation. It goes on beautifully and my blush adheres to it very well. The NC30 matches my skin tone exactly! I don't need to worry about a shiny face after using this.
This was just a normal loose powder which felt pretty comfortable but I didn't really see any difference with my own no make up face and this. There is simply nothing to say about. No power to cover some of my spots. Just a very light loose powder that's all.
I really like this loose powder, and I use it to keep my shine down and redness under control. It does it's job good and lasts for the whole day. And for an added bonus I never break out from it, and I have relatively evil skin. Like most people I use a brush and my color is the NC15. Matches perfectly with my skin (yes!).
what i love most about this powder is its staying power. i notice that when i use this after putting on MAC studio tech, my makeup lasts and lasts! proof: last sunday my office had an event from 7am to 7pm. i was running all over the place, but i didn't have to touch up once (did have to blot, though). love this and would buy and buy again!
This is a good product, but it didn't keep my oily skin looking very polished. I think it works well for some ppl but not me...
Also, I tan really easily so it very quickly looked fake and too light. But I guess that's more of MY problem. :-p
Oh great for the hot summer days when you want coverage but don't want to feel like you have allot of makeup on! I lightly apply it on and that's it!
I have no problem with this powder. It's a typical loose powder container, which does well living at home, I tote the pressed with me. I love the application of a loose powder to set my foundation. This one seems to last very well for me. I have to use a shade deeper, since my face is paler (and I need some color!). I have the NC30. I use it with a large brush to get an even distribution of color, otherwise it does look too dark. It's hard when you're between colors. I thought they used to have a NC25, now it's 20 or 30. I still like the texture of it, and my skin never looks too pink like some of the other brands do.
Great for using at home, as I take the pressed form out for touch-ups!!
No complaints from me!! This keeps my MU in place longer!! xxx
Im really impressed with this powder, it really keeps my ever so greasy skin under control all day without touchups- its something that I never expected from a MAC brand- and also however much you apply to your face, it never ends up looking cakey or unnatural, I got my tub from my aunt, and its nearly full- this will last me for ages.
I've used this powder in NC15 with a MAC brush for over a year. I like the way it sets with the brush and doesn't make me break out, but I need a redo in the afternoon so I don't look greasy. Maybe a puff would prevent this, but I don't want a heavy, cakey look. I will buy this again.
