Ok, I bought this product about 13 or so years ago and I remember liking it but for whatever reason, I just never bought it again. Well cut to many years later, to me being in my mid 30's and being...

Pros: good in oil control, enough coverage, doesnt look cakey on me, and lasts so well. the only thing i dont like about this is it transfers a lot. but maybe because its a powder. but overall,...

I've always been a fan of their powders. They work great on my combination skin and what i truly love from MAC is how great this matches my skin. I use NC40 or NC42. It is always so hard to find...

One of the classic powders in my opinion. I always keep it handy for more humid, more oily days when I require more coverage. And coverage it does deliver! Its super mattifying and makes my skin...

i recently hit pan on this so i thought i should review it. it does make your skin look flawless; it sets your foundation with an extra layer of coverage. it is a really nice powder and there...

My HG foundation powder was discontinued this year. I tried a handful of new products and this was the one I chose. I like it better than what I was using originally. It's lightweight but offers...

This stuff looked worse than horrific on me. I'm oily so I thought a powder foundation would do the trick. Wrong. My office at work has a ton of natural light and I was horrified to see what a...

I had such high hopes! I have very oily, very pale skin - and this made my face look dry, flaky, and weirdly yellowy-beige, even though I got it in NW10. My forehead was a mass of big, obvious...

I like that this product is a nice quick fix. I like using it with a brush to even out skintone. It gives a nice fresh look. It can also be applied with a sponge or a foundation brush if you want...

I used NC42 for years, then stepped away to Clinque Matte in Stay Golden due to its lower price. The Clinque was OK and I didn't think much of it, until I lost my compact. In the bottom of my...

I love, love, love this powder foundation for summer makeup and lighter, "no liquid foundation" days. I just spot-conceal my under-eyes and any dark spots (with MUFE Full Cover, my new favorite...

I'm not really a fan of this powder. Yes it gives coverage but doesn't last that long and looks splotchy and uneven throughout the day. I have dry skin but there are better powders I've tried that...

Wouldn't repurchase because MAC isn't cruelty-free. The product itself is solid in my opinion. Have repurchased this a couple of times because I didn't know better, but now I would definitely go...

Bought it some time last year in the shade NC40. It gave a nice medium - full coverage and it was a perfect match for my skin. However, about three days of continuous use, it broke me out on the...
