Awesome stuff. I usually use pressed powder, but this works so much better to completely and permanently set foundation/ sunscreen/ anything else you want. It leaves a flawless/ poreless airbrushed finished that's not overly matte, but "tamps down" shine and keeps it that way. It's amazing! It's great for foundation setting, but the best thing I've used it for is setting heavier/ greasier sunscreen. I wear a slightly oily SPF 60 in the summer and this completely airbrushes and mattifies the finish! I love this, and it's never made me break out, though I was afraid it would.

i have bought two of these, i love it so much. It basically blurs out any imperfections you have. Great to use when taking pictures. Does not leave you cakey at all no matter how much you use, but you do not need a lot. Great to set your foundation with or wear it alone.

I've been trying to decide between this & the one made by MUFE. After watching several YT videos & looking at the reviews on here, I decided to try MAC's version. The packaging is wider so, the brush definitely fits in there better. The texture seems a little more smooth, etc. Anyway, after trying it, I really like it. I definitely don't have oily skin (more dry than anything). I lightly applied it to areas wear my makeup seems to crease in the lovely wrinkles & I was actually surprised that it worked so well. Bottom line...great product, decent price. I'll definitely be purchasing this one again & again.

I love this powder! This controls my oil better than blot powder and looks so much more natural, my only gripe would be the packaging because the powder is so fine it tends to get messy and a lot comes out. Would buy this over and over again though, because it leaves the face looking natural and not powdery while controlling oil!

This is a great product if you want to keep your makeup put for the whole day without getting a cakey appearance. You don't notice you have this one except your make up looks smoother and you get a bit of a glow. This keeps my make up in place the whole day and I don't glow when I apply this. Definetely a HG for me!

This is a finely milled powder that looks white in colour, but ends up transparent on the skin. This is probaby not the best product for my dry skin, because my skin ends up getting flaky by the end of the day. But when I use it at first my skin looks beautifully airbrushed and soft. Probably better used for normal to oily skin types.

It's definitely not transparent in a flash photo! I appreciate that this product is for sensitive skin and eyes, but the photo flash-back is a deal-breaker.
