This is a wonderful powder!!! I love it, I must warn that it is extremely sheer so if you want more coverage than try the studio fix. Also, for people who have had trouble selecting their shade with MAC in the past, just ask the sales associate if you could choose your own color. It worked for me. The first time I tried MAC the associate told me NC35 (in the Studio Fix) was my color and the color made me look pasty and gray. I found out on my own that I am NC45, and it's a perfect match. Also I hear this powder oxidizes and may turn a shade darker,so I plan on trying the NC40 during the winter months when my skin is a little lighter.
I find a lot of powders settle into any lines on my face making them even more visible. but this powder doesn't which is what I like most. I don't know why but it smells like honey graham crackers but not in a good way. After you have it on, the smell goes away though.
When I bought NC35 in the store, it looked like it was a match....then after wearing it a couple of times it started to turn orange on my face. I was horrified everytime I looked in the mirror:-( And from reading the other reviews, I guess I'm not the only one. I'm really disappointed cuz I was all excited to be part of the "MAC Fan Club". I'll be staying away from thier powders and foundations.
OMG..okay this was the fault of the M/A. i said i wanted the regular pressed powder she gave me sheer.....i said i would try it out...YUCK! it left blouchy things on my face! and did not cover for shit...WILL NEVER EVER EVER buy this again..maybe if your skin is perfect then go ahead and buy....but for the rest of us....be afraid be VERY afraid
Select Sheer is lighter than MAC's pressed powder. Although it's light, I can set my concealer with this product. I wear the same color as my foundation (NC45). It has a lovely texture that goes on smoothly. I use a fluffy powder brush to apply, and the enclosed puff for touch-ups. A nice staple to have.
I never used pressed powder before, and love this one! It stays put for quite a while, and let's your skin show through, and look natural - not caked up. I have mine in NC30. I just wish it came with brush, as I don't like 'puffs'.
okay.....first of all i wanted the REGULAR pressed powder but the girl gave me the SHEER one....(i noticed this the next day when i wore it for the first time.....second.....the lady gave me the wrong color...im a NC35...but in powder i found im a NC30 :(....another thing....it was blotchy and orange....i felt like a person on steroids.....(the gross orange color people get) over.....i give it two thumbs down
WOW this is an amazing product! i have finally found the BEST powder for me. this powder goes on smooth and i only have to do a few touch ups during the day. i only wish that there was a compartment for the sponge to go in like the studio fix one.
I don't really like this powder because it (NC15) turned really orange on me. :( The texture is nice and soft though.
Wow, I'm really impressed. After my disasterous experience with Studiofix a few years ago, I didn't even want to go near any more MAC foundation/powder products...but this has really changed my mind.
Sheer Select is such a high quality pressed powder. It's very light, featherweight, and doesn't cake at all. It gets rid of shine, but doesn't leave my face patchy and uneven, nor does it build up to clogginess by the end of the day. I still hate the spartan MAC packaging, but I'm a convert to this powder! continued >>
