Love this product. On my 3rd compact already. When used without any other oil control product, it mattifies my t-zone up to 3-4 hrs (very oily skin), then I have to start using blot paper to soak up the oil slick that my face has become. If used with MAC oil control lotion, then the staying power is extended well into 7hrs plus. If used with a primer as well as oil control lotion, oil free time extends to 11hrs plus.

I am so happy I got this, I've read the reviews and been debating then finally I purchased it. Blot powder helps so much! I used to have so much oil on my face before

At $25 CAD this is the most expensive pressed powder I've ever bought. It works though! Keep the plastic bit that comes in the compact so your powder poof thing isn't sitting right on top of the powder, it helps considering there is no separate compartment for it. I have oily skin, mostly on my nose and forehead and it really helps control the oil. I haven't found anything that works this well. I usually go through powder really fast but this stuff works really well so it will probably last longer.

I bought the medium/dark based on the reviews for this being the best powder for oily skin. I have an oily forehead a couple hours into any day. Based on the high price tage for this, I can say I'm just ehhh, not blown away by it. It's ok, but I wouldn't pay for it again.

I don't like that there isn't a divider for the puff and powder to keep the oils out. Having tried Studio Fix powder foundation, I would pick Maybelline Pure Stay powder foundation, regardless of the price difference. Similarly, for this powder, I would rather have the L'oreal pressed powder. I think it's just as fine if not finer powder and goes on and works just as well. L'oreal's is a thiner compact, better for carrying in your purse. It is likely less product, although it lasts plenty long and I want to replace my powder regularly anyway. With what I paid for MAC's I'll have to keep until the bitter end! I don't mind paying up for a superior product worth the price difference, but this isn't it for me.

This powder was rec'd to me by a MAC MA in store. I was using C7 Studio Fix and would use it to touch up during the day, but I would look a hot mess. So she suggested that i use the Blot powder in dark. It works like a charm. I keep a small kabuki brush in my m/u bag and use it to apply blot powder. I only have to touch up once a day and my days are 12 hours long.

Great product!
In general I don't like spending this kind of money on pressed powder, you go through it in no time and inexpensive pressed powders tend to be just as adequate as very expensive ones. It's often just the packaging that differs, which is where the problems start - pressed powder is a touch-up product only for me, which means that the way the packaging looks matters much more to me than with the loose powder that never leaves the corner of my bathroom cabinet.

This is actually a powder that I will not go through in no time, though - it mattifies so well that I only need tiny amounts on my dry/combination skin, and because it is so effective it never looks cakey, either. It doesn't even emphasize the occasional flakiness on my nose in the winter, which every other powder I have come across does.

I have it in Light and it's translucent on my fair skin. The compact is simple, discreet and feels nicely solid. The puff that comes with it is puny, though, which detracts a little. Still, I will definitely buy again.

La verdad que no creo que sea tan fabuloso. Si me quita el brillo durante el dia, pero nada que un compacto mas economico no logre. No se si lo vuelva a comprar.

I use MAC's Blot Powder Dark after MAC's Studio Fix Fluid NC42. It's great but I think I'll need a lighter one since I've gotten so light over the winter. It's a great compact to go out with, just dab a little here and there to control oil. Great product. If ony MAC was cheaper, darn!
