I have been using this for years and I always carry one in my purse. I love it!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I was deciding between a 3 and a 4 on this..... It does help control oil, but not as much as I was hoping, I still have blot with Clean and Clear papers several times a day. I usually apply after my EL DW foundation to set it, but I will get oily through the day. I like that it is a very fine powder compared to some DS brands. I will probably repurchase as there is probably no powder out there that will be my magic solution *SIGH* I recommended getting the medium even if you are fair, even the medium seems a bit white/chalky on my fair skin. It usually blends in quickly, but sometimes it can make me look a bit pasty.

It is the best pressed poweder I have had. It does manage to control the oilies on my combination skin, although I would normally need to re-apply towards the end of the day. The colour is great, it's almost invisible (I use shade Medium), yet it gives a perfect matt finish. I even use it when I have tan, it goes on perfectly, mattifies, but doesn't show up on the face.

Best pressed powder I have ever used! I have combination skin that gets oily on my nose. This is the only powder that I've never "had to" reapply during the day. I can't believe it. The weird thing is the Light looks too light in the compact, but when you put it on your face, it's just right. The packaging is really nice too.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I got this product at the CCO for $13 and it was a steal. I use this everyday for touchups and occasionally to set my makeup.
It works great and does exactly what it's designed to do.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This product is a nightmare for acne prone skin. Even using a little makes my skin breakout. Love the coverage and the color, but not worth the breakouts!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I was looking for a pressed powder thats easy to toss in my bag for touch ups and to blot my shiny skin.
I like it because it doesn't add on any extra color or cakey texture and definitely blots but without over drying. I'm an nc20 for reference, and I purchased this in medium. I felt that the light left the slightest cast.
I love the compact, IMO its very durable.

Okay, I've tried almost every drugstore pressed powder, as well as a few high end. And I must say that MAC has by far the best selection of colours and best pressed powder for your money.
I use NW15 in MAC and I use the Blot in shade Medium. It adds no color, just gets rid of the oilies and makes me look flawless. So yes I will repurchase.
For Cosmetic reference and application:
Studio Moisture Fix spf 15
Prep + Prime
Studio Fix Fluid NW15
Studio Fix Powder Foundation NW15 (to set my foundation)
MAC studio finish concealer
Blot powder- maybe 2 times a day
The reason I use the Studio Fix powder to set my makeup, instead of a loose powder, is the convenience of the compact and the fact that it'll last me just as long as a loose and its versatile in the meaning that I can use it on a day when I dont feel like wearing a liquid. For me it doesnt add anymore colour, it just sets my makeup wonderfully.
As Far as the blot powder goes, I will continue to purchase since it does what its supposed to do and it doesnt look cakey or heavy on top of my liquid.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Hands down the best pressed powder I've used. It combats shine and does not look cakey. I use this in the morning over my makeup and simply blot with a tissue once or twice during the day. If you have oily or combination skin, you should have this in your makeup bag!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Blot powder is a must have for girls with oily skin. It helps control the shine and has a nice matte finish. I use prep and prime to prep my face and then I use the select tint. Then I use the sheer pressed powder. Last but not least, I use the blot powder for a matte, natural look. It is VERY important that you use a brush to apply this product. If you use the sponge, it will NOT look right, especially if you re apply it after you have been sweating.
