This setting powder works so well. I have oily skin, and it sets my make up so well and feels so soft. Highly recommend this product! Thanks MAC!!!

ABSOLUTELY HATE IT!!!!
This is the worst product ever, in my opinion! First of all, it's TOO matte if you get what I'm saying. Regardless of how little you use, it makes your skin look dry and blotchy. Blotchy as in, it looks like it takes some of the makeup off when you brush it away. Second of all, this product is HORRIBLE for flash photography! It causes the worst flashback ever! I used the slightest amount and I got the same result in pictures that I did when I used a lot! I hate this powder and will never, EVER get it again! I didn't even want to give it one star but I had too!

Versatile product

I re-discovered and re-fell in love with this product when I used it to dust my lipstick for a more matte finish. It's a great setting powder without adding any colour. A must have for every makeup fanatic!

This product is great! Makes my foundation stay put even better, and has a fantastic mattifying effect. I love that it's colourless, I use it for setting, oil control and to get a matte finish.

Full coverage
Tags +Natural looking, setting foundation
I have this powder in the light peach color and it covers very nicely. It does not take much so be light-handed. It is finely milled and very smooth on the face. This container will last a very long time because it takes so little product to cover the whole face. I do mix it with other powders just to make sure it doesn't look too peachy/Orange on me. The first time I used it I put too much on and I looked like a giant peach! I have a fair complexion so I have to be careful with coverage. I do recommend this powder because it not only goes on nicely but it last all day through a twelve hour work shift. Good buy, you won't be disappointed.

Good Product
Tags +oily skin setting
It's definitely good for how much you're getting to the price as well, however I've noticed it has gone up $2 and since it's larger I find myself using more it seems. But overall it's phenomenal.

One Word: AMAZING!!!!
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control
This is the best setting powder ever!!! This is literally my 8th one. I've tried so many transparent setting powder from drugstore to high end (Nyx,MUFE HD, Nars, etc), but I keep coming back to this one. This is my holy grail setting powder. I have combination oily skin tone, and this works amazingly well with my skin type. On top of that my skin looks flawless. I get so many compliments when I set my foundation with this powder!!!
Please do not discontinue this!!!!!! Please!!!!

Buy this!
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control, setting your makeup.
This powder is wonderful and so versatile. I use it to finish my whole face after makeup is applied to keep it budge-proof all day & also dab it on my lipstick to make it non-transferrable (lipstick literally lasts all night without smearing or transferring, even through food/drink). Plus, the jar is HUGE. I've had mine for over a year and haven't even made a dent in it. Definitely getting your money's worth!
Only downside, refrain from putting too much on or you will appear pale/washed-out in pictures.

Love it!
Tags +Natural looking, Shine control
My skin gets EXTREMELY oily. So much so that it sometimes looks like I'm sweating. I've tried other powders and nothing really lasts. I just brought this a couple days ago and it's GREAT. I use it before and after foundation and I have definitely noticed a difference. I have darker skin, so a little goes a long way and it doesn't interfere with the color of my foundation. I wasn't sure about spending so much on this, but you get A LOT of powder in.

Set Powder
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control
I absolutely love this powder! Its always hard to tell when you're using a translucent powder if it even makes a difference vs any other but it does, it sets the face beautifully, almost leaves this soft focus to the skin. I do my brows with a gel and I have such oily skin so throughout the day it almost appears wet, I use this powder to set my brows and no longer experience that. It's a must have multi use product!

Great product. Love the packaging, and it doesn't allow for a ton of product to spill out. Powder has no odd smell or color. Great for oily skin. Very lightweight. I love that you get so much product!

This is a great fine powder for setting your makeup with out changing the color. It does exactly what it says it will do. Generous sized jar as well.

really nice setting powder
Tags +Shine control
i use this on top of the studio fix liquid foundation in NC15 with a normal powder brush. i switched to this powder from the basic loose powder from a drugstore brand because i have oily skin, and after a few hours into the day i'd be shiny.
pros: it is very translucent; it goes on and sticks to the foundation well; i think it does keep me shine free for longer than the drugstore loose powder; you don't have to use very much, so it'll last for a looong time; the price is pretty decent, considering how long is lasts and how well it performs; i don't think it really makes my makeup cakey, though i don't use a very big amount;
cons: i feel like it's so matte that if you look closely, you can see the powder on my face (and, like i said, i don't use much at all); even though it does last longer than my other powder, i'm still a bit shiny after about 4 or 5 hours in doors.
i would recommend this for oily skin, because, honestly, if you're as bad as me, nothing is going to keep you matte all day long. but this powder does do a pretty decent job.

Tags +Natural looking, Shine control, smooth skin/finish, reducing redness
This is one of my favorites by M.A.C! You can apply it over a tinted powder or simply on its own over foundation. This powder smooths out any problematic sections of skin; it will also decrease redness. Love this product, and absolutely recommend it!
