Where has this been all my life? especially in my teens- this would have been so lovely to have. Oily ladies, this product is a miracle. Your makeup will look freshly applied all day, and who doesn't want that? I have been devoted to MAC Blot Powder for about a year, however- I would hit pan within a month with daily usage. I was tired of always repurchasing it- and decided to try this out. Firstly, you get so much product! I only paid $16.00 online for this (from CRC cosmetics with my MUA discount) and I cannot be happier. After priming, I apply this before my face makeup. After foundation and concealer I apply this with a cotton puff, concentrating on my T-zone. I do find this leaves a very slight white cast- but afterwards I follow through with MAC Studio Fix Powder, or Physicians Formula Talc-Free powder (since they have pigmentation) I then spritz with Fix + and apply a bit more on my T-zone again (I wouldn't rec. this unless you get very oily) .....then I'm set :) I get 8-9 hrs of wear with this, and that's when my skin starts to look 'dewy' not oily and shiny. At the dewy stage, I'm usually back at home for the day- but when I wanted to see what would happen- at 11 hrs of wear, I only needed a light touch up (but again, it looked more dewy) .....I am beyond thrilled with this product, and I would highly suggest to anyone who has to deal with oil, or if you simply want that freshly applied look all day. I still have my Blot Powder, but only keep it in my purse as my compact :P and if I might have to touch up on a summery day. The only downside to the product is the packaging, its not convenient to take with you- but you honestly don't need to. An amazing gem <3 *Update* I just wanted to add that this stuff is still working for me, and is truly life changing- might sound a bit cheesy since its makeup, but it truly did. I love how this product will make my foundation last ALL DAY. I can apply my makeup at 9am, and by 6pm I am not the least bit oily. I never have to touch up anymore, which saves me money. I used to have to buy a MAC Blot powder 1X a month, and it still wasn't anywhere near as amazing as this :) I truly wish I had this all these years- the amount of $$ I spent on primers, and 'long lasting' foundations- it must be hundreds. I can use any primer now, and not get oily at all. Ladies, you must try this if you battle with oily skin- it will not let you down!
