After my MAC loose powder was discontinued, I tried this product and am somewhat satisfied. It's a nice powder but I don't feel that it keeps my combo borderline oily skin matte for more than an hour. I end up using blotting sheets a lot. Not sure if it leaves me more oily than my old MAC powder or what but if you have combo or oily skin, don't expect a staying matte look. It would be awesome if it kept me matte all day!! It doesn't break me out at all though which is great since I have sensitive skin. Would love to find a new powder that will keep me shine free but scared to try something new in fear of breaking out...
Hi, I've been using this powder for years and am really bummed now after learning the NW line of shades has been discontinued. My skin is really sensitive and and I'm scared of trying a new powder for fear of breaking out. MAC bring it back!! The powder itself is light (I wear it on bare skin w/o foundation) and doesn't provide coverage. It looks really natural and does NOT break me out. It's the only MAC face product I use due to the breakout issue I've had with Studiofix and others. A tad on the pricey side though.

Hi, this is my first time using a self-tanner and was pleasantly surprised by this product. I applied it about 30 minutes ago and it looks great. I have to say that those who aren't happy w/this product are probably have fair skin so the color looks unnatural. If you have a medium or slightly tanned complexion already, it looks natural--it's subtle, not dark dark brown, and not orange. Even has a hint of shimmer if you look closely. The smell isn't too bad. Smells up your bathroom more than your skin although it's slightly noticeable. A tip that may be useful is after you're done applying, examine yourself for noticeable streaks that you can correct before the color develops. Just dab a cotton round or tissue in water and gently brush the streak away. As the color develops, keep an eye out for streaks and do the same thing. As long as you rub it in and don't apply too much, this trick works great. I think it's worth the $30 price tag because fake tanning in a bed is much more expensive and harmful to one's health. $30 is a small price to pay to stave off skin cancer. thanks for reading. coral.
