Got this with all of the other studio makeup. Looked orangey on. Seemed to control oil a little, but not as well as EL or even clinique. Back it went with the rest of the MAC stuff.
I've been using this Blot Powder in Dark (NW30) only on my nose as this is the only visible oily area on my face. I like the fact that my nose wasn't shiny and this product did not cause a visible bulid-up. This blot powder is very sheer and nearly colorless, so it looks natural throughout the day. I don't like the fact that the powder puff does not have a seperate compartment like the SF powder, but you can't have it all right? Price was reasonable as this should last me forever since I only use it on my nose. Highly recommened!
just bought this BABY! love it love it! whenever i get oily. i cant decided what ta do.. its either ill pat my face with tissue.. but it destroys the foundation.. or my greatest sin.. to retouch using the same foundation.i just feel the heaviness after doing that.. so i wana end al this makeupy burden..i bought the blot powdwr in medium. im nc42.. oily very very oily. or i must say greasy.. must have lotsa ANDROGENS.. well.. i was shocked bcoz here in the philippines.. its 1,050 php.. cheap if u consider it as a MAC prodct.. my next buy wud be the studiofix and d concealers. goin back.. the powdr gave me a whitish color at first.. and i wasnt hapy but after 10 minutes it blended so well,. my skin looks clean, fresh and matte.. i love how it doesnt give off any pigments.. just a matte face. it lasts long. coz its 12 g.. i jus hate the puff. reminds me of PRESTIGE POWDER..the packaging.. well. its ayt.. but i rili dont understand d puff.well its cute anyway coz there's a MAC tag on it. ehehee. love it.. buy this b4 its price increase!
I'm an NC25, asian, light skin, and dark hair.
I love this stuff. It's one of the best pressed powder I've ever used. It's sheer and takes away shine without adding tons of cakey product build-up. Be warned though, it does run rather light. I usually get medium-dark.
This is the perfect powder for mattifying down shiny sunscreen. Thanks to those who recommended it for this! It has a very natural, matte but not cakey at all finish. It's perfect!
I just purchased my pressed blot powder a few days ago. I absolutely love how it mattifies my tzone. Will definitely buy this product again.
this has been my staple for years and i love the light shade it's so natural and matches my skintone perfectly.There is almost no visible colour deposit just beautiful peachy natural skin. Everybody should have this !!! EDIT: Peachy = not orange but texturewise(like peachfuzz, baby smooth )
Love it forever!!!!
Oh this container fits also the mineralize skinfinish, so if your unhappy without the mirror just pop your MSF natural in this compact :)
This is a great powder to use for touch-ups when my skin is in an okay condition and I don't want to put another layer of foundation on my face during middle of a day. My entire face gets oily all year long, even though this blot powder is not super long lasting, it gives my skin a clean looking finish. A powder brush works a lot better than the puff included.
Best powder ever! As my skin got better, I wanted less makeup on my face. I got this in LIGHT and it's wonderful. Keeps me shine free all day with one application in the morning. It's very light and and definitely keeps the oilies at bay. I don't even have to retouch. Makes a look a little powdery but I like the Victorian look, so I don't mind that. Great for getting rid of shine from sunblock!
I wasn't that impressed with this powder. It doesn't do anything that a tissue or blotting paper won't accomplish.
