This pressed powder produces a lovely matt finish. I have pretty good skin so when I want to dress up I usually apply this on top of my concealer, and it looks great. Don't be put off by the light colour - you're only meant to use it sparingly. I find that powders in general tend to make my skin produce more oil though - but maybe it's just me. Overall a good product that's reasonably priced.
Former MAC Studio Fix user ---> turned MAC Blot Powder enthusiast. <3 this stuff. Tossed the buffer that it comes with (tends to transfer the oil from my face to the buffer, onto the powder, leaving the powder hard and gunky). Instead I apply it throughout the day (over my foundation in the a.m.) with my Bobbi Brown Kabuki brush. By the end of the day, my oilies are kept at bay and not all caked on looking. continued >>
I am in LOVE, I absolutely adore this product, I use it as a finishing powder over my fluidfix fdn and concealers, and it does the job so well, I touch up about 6 hours after, but that's because the weather is so hot here atm, definitely buy this product if you want a matte finish <3!!! continued >>
This works. Really. My face has been like an oil field for years. Tried all sorts of other products which claim to reduce oil and sebum production BUT this is the only product that worked for me. I use it together with its complimenting foundation. I've got sensitive and acne prone skin and this prouduct hasn't caused my skin to break out at all.
Mac Blot!!! Where oh where have you been all my life!!?!? I have been seeking something that is sheer, doesn't feel heavy, removes the loads of oil my skin produces, doesn't turn orange during the day, doesn't cause me to break out, doesn't clog my pores - and I have found it with a chance - spur-of-the-moment purchase. Yes, I think fate brought us together...I shant ever leave you again Mac Blot! I love thee!!! LOL!
Best Pressed Powder ever! I have always needed a powder due to scary amounts of oily skin. It never cakes, is always shear and I will NEVER leave home without it!!!
I have been on a mad search for a new pressed powder since my all time favorite powder (almay blemish healing presssed powder in translucent - life saver...will be missed greatly) was discontinued. I was hoping this would be the one, but this powder is horrible. I've used it 2 days in a row and both times it looks horrible. When I use it to touch up my face, it makes my pores look huge and it makes them look raised...it also makes me shinier than I usually get. I think it's because it's too harsh on my skin. And when you put harsh products on your skin that dry it out, your skin reacts by producing even more oil. It also burns a bit too. I don't know why I'm surprised though, I've had bad experiences with every MAC product I've tried. On top of all that, I think it's giving me blackheads around my nose.
I really like this powder. It helps control oil and shine and it sets foundation very well. The compact is very nice and has a good mirror. This powder blends very well also. I would buy this again.
I can not live without this powder!! It is the best powder to control shiny oil throughout the day. I use it to set foundation and reapply as needed during the day. I have had no breakouts with it and I have been using it for years! It is very translusent. I can use light, medium or the medium dark and I have fair skin. It blends in so well it is an incredible product. I highly recommend this powder.
i love this powder but more as loose powder. when it's broken you can fill it in a little box and you can use it as a loose powder. never looks cakey on me. great coverage and my skin looks flawless. i think loose is better because of i love my brush. to be in school and want a touch up the compact form is very good but when you are at home and make your mu in the mornings. soft skin, matte and natural. but more natural when you spray fix+spray after aplly the powder. great powder but loose it better. i give 4lippies to the compact and would give 5 to blot loose. but i recommend this as well.
