I'm a guy with super oily skin everytime i put myskincare and finish with sunscreen in the morning i look very shiney. So i need to find a powder to set everthing and give me a matte look and for a men not given any coverage because people can tell if you put a powder with coverage on. So im research in here and find MAC blot to be very interesting so i went out and buy it. When i use it it was very good give my face look matte till lunch but my nose get a little shiney at lunch. I know nothing can control my super shiney face all day.If i have time i may retouch mac blot at lunch. I find this powder to be my HG powder for men with shiney skin. But i give it packaging quality 3 because i drop it once about 30 cm. height and the powder was brokeup but still usable a waste and very messy the powder leaked out from the compact and dirty my bag. But if the powder was a little more drop resistant it would be perfect. I would like to buy the loose version i think it would sutable for use in the morning and the press for touch up. I use medium dark thought

I disagree with reviewers that say that there are comparable drug-store brand powder blotters. Honestly, I've tried so many, and for someone who is super oily like myself none have come to avail. This works, whatever the special ingredients are, and thank goodness it does because I get pretty embarrassed from my oiliness. If you're moderately oily, then I can see other brands working for you. If you're like me, then this will actually do something. My skin feels much better with it on.

I have this in Medium. My HG pressed powder!!! I dust this on once or twice during the day and just LOVE IT. It doesn't add or change the color of my face, just gives it a lovely fresh finish and controls oil for hours. HG!! I use powder foundation and still can dust this on during the day without getting cakey.

OMG I LOVE THIS!!! I use the Medium Dark colour and it is the only product that has actually worked to stop the shine i get from foundation (I use MAC Studio Fix Foundation + Powder in NC35). Although pricey it is defs worth it. It comes in a convenient compact with a mirror and cotton- like pad. I took out the pad though as there is no separate compartement for it and just sits on top of the product and can lead to contamination. Instead i use a powder brush (not by MAC)and i works like a jem. It doesn't look cakey and it doesn't make me flake as other reviewers have said. It prevents my t zone from appearing shiny. It gives a matte appearance and my skin looks healthy as opposed to oily. it does not appear blotchy but smooth and blends well with my foundation. After 10 hours i have to reapply as my face starts to look dewy. So it's staying power is awesome. I use Benefit's Dr feelgood as a make up base, the MAC Studio Fix Foundation + Powder with a brush and then Mac Blot Powder with a brush and i'm good to go! I am so happy i found this!!! I will defs be buying this again and recommend it to all!!!!!

My god, canít believe I havenít written a review about this product yet. When I first met Mr.Blot, I asked myself where youíve been all my life. And now I canít live a single day without him. Iíve tried many others, but always come back running. LOL sorry I couldnít help myself.

I have a very oily t-zone, this is the only product that has stood the test of time for me. Though unfortunately by the end of a really long day there is subtle evidence of surfacing oil. However it isnít completely mirror like shine, as it would be without this product. The appearance is more blurred, but you know itís there. I doubt there is a single product that would keep my face completely flawless for a day.

I usually layer this over foundation if my skinís really uneven and patchy. Most the time, I put on concealer and finish off with this powder. The powder itself, isnít exactly velvety soft (for eg. Compared to MUFEís super matte/HD loose pd), but I think thatís partly why it holds up for so long. I find that the best method of application is with a powder brush (I use Macís 219).On my third compact!

For ref, Iím C3/NC25-30 in SF and I use dark/med. No coverage, slight sheen. 8g/0.28 oz. Every girl/guy needs one.

This stuff rocks! It absorbs oil, leaves a matte finish. Is not cakey and I don't break out.
Nice packaging that comes with mirror and a applicator, but it won't last.

Fair price $22 USD. I'm NC30 and the SA suggested dark medium, but is not even dark, anyway it doesn't deposit color and doesn't disturb other MU either.

HG! my search ended here. Thanks MAC.

This is a staple in my makeup collection. I use my kabuki to apply and set my makeup. It keeps me shine free for most of the day. It does require touch-ups for me if it's a super hot day. (As most days are here in Houston)
It's OK to set undereye concealer, but I recommend loose powder for that. I use NYC translucent loose powder.
Maybelline Dream Matte pressed powder is comparable to MAC Blot, but not the same, if you're on a budget.
I'm NC25/30 and Medium/Dark in Blot is a perfect match.

I actually use my kabuki to dust this on. I lightly dust all over and even when I'm not wearing makeup my face looks great. It always keeps my oily skin in check. I would never use the little pouf on the inside since those tend to harbor bacteria.

Used it to set my foundation and concealer.
It instantly gives a matte finish!
But it doesn't really have any oil controlling property.
You can just brush it on your oily areas instead of using the blotting sheets.
It doesn't have any coverage and scent to it.
I like how it feels on my face.
It is a good product overall! And I will be buying it again!

Definately, a makeup must have! It makes a face seem fresh after hours of wear! It gives makeup that matte finish after all the oils of the day set in.
