Does it's job!
Tags +matte, light, not too creamy
I wouldn't say this is the best powder out there, but for the price.. I would say it's one to go with! I always use this to set my makeup after I contour and before I highlight. It works well, but it does add to the shine if your skin as naturally oily.

Best Powder for Aging Skin
Tags +Non-Drying, Effective, soft to the touch, non-clogging
I had given up hope that I would ever be able to find a powder that a) won't break me out and b) won't dry me up. This is perfect! It sets the foundation and takes away the shine without reducing my skin to flaky bits at the end of the day. Don't over apply. A little bit will do. I apply with a fluffy 137 brush. I'll probably buy a darker shade and use it as bronzer. I'm in love with this. Please don't ever discontinue the Careblend!

Natural finish
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
This product is great for dry skin. If you are looking for a light-weight powder, that is long wearing with a natural finish, this is the powder for you! I use this powder all over my face and to set my concealer. Looks amazing!!

A bit chalky
Tags +Long wearing
I have tried a lot of powders and this one is definitely the best, the only thing I would say is that it is a bit caulky and if you are using a power brush there is a lot of kick back more then I expected. Great power but its a bit caulky.

Great product
Tags +Creamy
I have been using Mac cosmetics for about 12 years. The powder is have been using was drying our my aging skin. After an online chat with one the consultants I changed to this creamy powder and just love it. Could maybe be a little bit longer wearing but other than that will continue use to use it. I especially like your products as they don't irritate my skin.

Great for touch ups
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control, combination/ oily skin, quick touch ups
I have been using Studio Care Blend Pressed Powder since it came out a few years ago. It replaced my Mac's originia pressed powder. Sheer pressed powder is a bit sheer for me. This compact is enough for touch ups or medium coverage. I use this over Match Master Foundation and daily for touch ups. I love that its virtually invisible with nourishment and vitamins.

I purchased his to use for contouring. It was not dark enough for me, however, so I ended up returning it. I did like the power, though.

its okay
I have oily skin and i use powder to really mattify and set my foundation. this powder is nice but it's not worth the money. so there are a lot of powders that are the same but a lot cheaper.

Amazing product
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control
Makes my skin look very clear and natural. The color is perfect, and it's light (you don't feel like there's something on your face), best powder I used so far. This is the first MAC product I've bought, and I'm definitely going to look for more.

My fav.
Tags +Non-Drying, Shine control
So far out of everything I've tried from M.A.C this is the only thing I loved and will continue to repurchase . It's so soft on my face and makes me so matte . I do have to touch up from time to time with it and I have dry skin. But I honestly believe it's because my foundation is dewy . So I'm not sure this would be amazing for oily skin.

The only powder I use
Tags +Natural looking, Non-Drying, dry skin
I have very dry skin and most powder just sits on top of my face and dries it out. This powder sets my foundation and is not drying. It might not work as well if you have oily skin. I won't ever be without this stuff

The BEST pressed powder!
Tags +Natural looking, Shine control
I purchased this pressed powder online using only the reviews I'd read. This is by far the best powder I've ever purchased. Thank you MAC...you never let me down.

My HG Powder
Tags +Natural looking, Non-Drying
I have a drawer full of powders, including MAC MSF, Dior Nude and more. But they all left my dry skin looking cakey and I was better off with no powder at all. My MUA suggested we try this product, and I'm in love! I don't know why this gets so little mention, because I adore it. I use it very lightly over my Studio Sculpt foundation. In MSF I used Light or Light Plus, but with this powder my MUA went with Medium Plus. That was a concern for me, but it works perfectly. I use a combo of Studio Sculpt NC 15 and 20 in the summer (NC 15 in winter) and the combination is perfect. I use a light hand with both the foundation and powder -- just a pea sized dot of the foundation blended with a damp Beauty Blender and a quick light once-over with the powder brush. Less is more with both products. Best of all, now I don't need to use Fix Plus at all! I use a small dot of Hourglass Mineral Veil under the foundation, because too much primer ruins the look too. I have very sensitive skin, but no worries with this combo. I just hope MAC doesn't drop this product, because none of the beauty bloggers seem to mention this little jewel.

Thank you Mac!! Finally found a powder that tones down shine but still looks natural and never chalky. I can wear this with just a little concealer and look perfect.
