Not for darker tones
Tags +chalky
I bought this after getting rave reviews from one of the makeup artists working at the store and i was extremely excited to use it. My face looked SUPER chalky and it is 100% noticeable. This was a waste and it now just sits DEEP in the bottom of my makeup bag. I do not recommend this product to darker toned women AT ALL.

Does not do anything
If I could rate this with 0 star, I would. When I brushed my brush onto the product, nothing appeared. When I use my finger to swipe the surface, nothing appeared. At first I thought I just received a bad batch. But I tried again and I had to literally rub it to even get some white powder onto my finger. And guess what, it was super chalky not even smooth at all. It literally stayed on my finger when I tried applying it into my face. Such a disappointment and I had high hopes on MAC products. It felt like plastic.

AMAZING!
Tags +Long wearing, oily skin
I have pretty oily skin and nothing I tried seemed to work. I bought this a week ago and I have had nothing but matte silky skin while using it! It works so well with makeup or by its self! I am so happy to have found something that keeps my oily skin under control while giving me a nice clean complexion.
It's officially a must have for me now!

Not too powdery on the skin and works well with Fix Plus. Try wearing just Moisture infusion Serum Idratant and this transparent finishing powder for a modern look.

pressed powder
Tags +Shine control
This does the job for shine control, but I do place in my t-zone on top of my make-up, I favor this one over the loose powder

LOVE
This pressed powder is everything!! I love it. It keeps me very matte. I live in Florida and it's pretty warm here, and this holds up better than my studio fix plus powder. A must have in your collection.

Wonderful powder!
Tags +setting makeup, priming face before foundation
I've been using this for the past three years and it is AWESOME!! I don't want to try any other product because this one is absolutely phenomenal. I'm an NC45 and this powder just disappears into my skin. In the summer, I use it before and after I apply my foundation (I have very oily skin). This helps my makeup last longer in the humid NYC summer heat. I will reapply it if I'm out and have gotten VERY oily/sweaty. But I usually blot with tissue or oil blotting sheets first before I think to reapply. On a couple occasions when I first started using it, I reapplied it more than twice and I saw it on my skin. So, as long as you don't get carried away with reapplying it, it is awesome! Definitely a must-have in my makeup collection!

Best compact EVER
Tags +setting my makeup
I love this powder. I have used the loose powder version of Prep and Prime daily for the last 2 years and purchased the compact for travel. It sets my makeup so well, my skin looks flawless from 7 AM till I take it off which is around 9:30 PM.

Disappointing
Tags +nothing
I ordered this after reading all the positive reviews. I was really disapointed with this product. It only reduces the shine when you first apply it, after 10-15 min the shine is back. It does absolutely nothing for minimizing lines or imperfections. Will not order again.

EXCEPTIONALLY Natural!
Tags +no make-up natural yet flawless look.
For those of you who want to look natural and have a no make-up look, THIS is the powder for you. Not only does it provide a long wearing, natural look, it also truly enhances your natural beauty by minimizing pores, lines, imperfections and other little annoyances we notice on our skin. I have been using MAC for many years and love all of their products but this one is the first to actually prompt me to write a review. It's just amazing!
