I held out as long as I could before I gave in and bought this, and I am as shocked as can be by how much better this performs on my oily skin than any other powder I have tried! It is light and comfortable, invisible, and it holds back shine and keeps my skin feeling clean and matte for hours - normally powder only holds me for 2 or 3 hours if I'm lucky, and this stuff holds the shine back twice that long, easily. Best part is, it's really not expensive either!

I have been using and buying this product for 2 years now, and it is the only powder I'll use. It absorbs oil without adding color or looking cakey, no matter how many times you reapply. Its light enough to use in the summer; its very sheer, almost transluscent. Perfect for those who do not want coverage in their powder.

This is my new favorite powder. I have a problem with powders bringing out my dry skin and making me look ghostly but this stuff looks very natural. No dry appearance either. Wish I had tried this sooner!

Oh wow...I just adore this stuff. I just received it from Gloss this morning and put it on straight away. First, I noticed that it doesn't get all cakey like so many other pressed powders. The texture's great, too...so smooth and soft! Also, in the six-plus hours I've had it on, my oily skin hasn't gotten shiny at all! Amazing! Nothing but raves for this product!

Love this! The color is good and it really helps control shine. I am on my third compact and hope they never get rid of it! It is my "holy grail" :)

I love MAC blot powder! Some powders make you REALLY white and this no color idea keeps me my natural light color instead of casper. I really like it. Doesn't cake up either.

I started using this product years ago, and then replaced it with Almay oil control oil blotting powder. Unfortunately Almay seems to have discontinued this powder, so I am back to the MAC. This is great for oilier skin types. It is soft and has a smooth texture. It does not turn orange-y at the end of the day either. (which I find the lower end brands: cornsilk, covergirl to do). The color is also very translucent and not cakey looking.

This powder did a great job of controlling oil. I have tried this before and somehow it got lost in my makeup drawer and I tried it again recently. Love this stuff!

I used Almay before switching to MAC for most of my basic make-up needs and MAC Blot powder somehow manages to surpass everything. It's tinted to a great shade that doesn't look chalky or caked on when applied during the day. It really works for blotting oil and the packaging is neat. I only wish that there was a place for the sponge the same way there is for the StudioFix foundations.

This is my favorite powder, hands down. If I use it over Milk-of-magnesia, I don't have to blot once all day (in the winter). It does a very good job of controlling the oilies and looks fairly natural when applied with a powder brush (I never use the puffs that come with powder because they make me look cakey). The price is well worth it. I used to use Cornsilk, but that turned colors on me and didn't control oil as well as the Blot.

This is the worst powder I have ever used! Even though I use a very small amount, it is very visible in my pores, and makes me look like I am wearing a ton of makeup. Besides looking very unnatural, it did nothing to control my moderately oily t-zone.

This is a staple in my professional makeup kit, but I find the color choices to be unrealiistic. The light is very light, medium is a good neutral and the dark has an odd pink undertone. It does soak up the oil under hot studio film lighting.

For me this powder was not any better than low-end powders. It did have a nice, fine consistency. But in terms of lasting shine reduction for my oily self, it didn't work well at all. I'll stick to Clean'n'Clear blot sheets.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Warm Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
A very nice powder that soaks oily spots right up! I carry this in my purse at all times. Not too heavy or too sheer but just right. Although, I don't see it being any better than most compact powders. In fact you could probably get a low end that works just as well. It's a great powder but there's nothing too special about it other than it's made by MAC.

I am so impressed with this powder! It absorbs oil and keeps a natural yet matte finish for hours and hours. I don't even touch up at all during the winter months. It adds no color to my face and isn't chalky at all. The finish is lovely. (For those that complained about it being chalky, I found that the puff applicator gave me a less natural finish whereas a brush works much better). A new staple for me.

Very good for soaking up the oilies with no color added. Why did I wait so long to buy this???
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I love this powder! I have extremely oily skin and this keeps me looking matte and fresh all day without a "ghost" face. At less than $15, this is a great deal for the money. My only wish is that the sponge could be kept separate from the powder. I'll defintely by this again.

This product is great for getting rid of shine. My only complaint is that I'm on my third compact and so far the powder in every one has broken out in clumps. I have been very careful with them, so I'm not sure why this keeps hapening.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This is excellent and getting rid of shine, the best product I've ever tried for this purpose. I have it in Dark and it doesn't cake up and get chalky like pressed powders and powder papers usually do. I highly recommend this. The price ($14.50 US) is nice too for the quality of this product.

Nice translucent setting powder.. does control oil somewhat (i am not that oily.. so I can't really tell), it looks natural on the skin. I dust this on with a fluffy powder brush instead of the puff. Will probably buy again when I run out.
