Review of MAC Blot Powder by chemdr
This is my absolute favorite oil control product ever. I use it to set my Shu Uemura Face Architect liquid foundation at 7am. At 2pm I'm barely starting to show oil, so I blot with Clean&Clear Oil Control Pads, and then lightly reapply the Mac Blot Powder. I don't have to do any touch-ups until 6pm or so.
This product seriously works, and I am the oiliest person alive. I cannot stress enough how well it controls shine, and it also reduces the appearance of pores. I've been on MUA for years and this is the first review I've written, that's how much I love this powder. I use the pad that comes with it for broad application across my forehead, cheeks, chin, and bridge/tip of my nose, and a concealer brush to apply the powder to my nostrils and between my eyes. My one complaint would be that I wish the pad could be kept in a separate part of the container like in MAC's Studio Fix; instead it has to rest on top of the powder.
Lastly, this Blot Powder doesn't really mask flaws such as redness or light scars but since that isn't the purpose it's OK with me :) For light redness around my nose and chin I use a concealer brush to apply Studio Fix on top of the Blot Powder. Overall A+ to MAC for making the ONLY product that actually controls my freakishly oily face.
