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 >>
I love this powder! Went out and bought it because MAC's reg pressed didn't have good reviews and this one seemed to be between blot which has no color and fix which is too thick and I can't seem to touch up with. I love select sheer I'm NC45 and use it over my studio tech
I ran out to the MAC counter when I heard this came out. First impression: nicer than the other MAC powders. This one is definately sheer, soft, lightweight. I use it without foundation for a natural matte finish without too much color. I just wish it was a tad bit cheaper. It doesn't control oil as well as Blot Powder.
this powder really is the best i have ever used. i was hesitant at first b/c the shades seemed a little dark, i'm an nc20. i bought the nc15 and it is a perfect match with nc20 select sheer foundation. the soft, velvety texture gives the skin a glowy (but not at all shiny) natural finish. it's bit more expensive than a lot of other powders, but it's worth it. for sure an HG!!
