    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

    This product is an absolute life saver. My face gets extremely oily throughout the day(especially in my t-zone), the Nyx blotting powder does just the job. It doesn't last all day which I did expect(I have never found a product that leaves me matte all day) but I don't mind. This product allows me to stay matte for about at the most 4 hours which is much better than other products that I had to use. I blot myself in the morning, during my lunch break, then just before I head out from school. It has the tiniest bit of coverage but I didn't buy it for coverage. Its easy it apply but sometimes it does get a little dusty but that fine. The only really true problem I have with it is that sometimes it settles in the dry patches of my nose. I have combination skin, where underneath all that oil on my face is my skin gets slightly patchy. If you don't have that problem, it should be the perfect product for you. If you do have the same skin type its still good to use as long as you moisture beforehand.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

      This is a very lightweight powder. It is a very smooth powdery application. It can get a bit messy if you are heavy handed. It controls my oil and is definitely matte. It offers little coverage, but that really isn't what it is for anyway.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

        I've been using a similar powder from another drug store manufacture, but I noticed NYX offered some color options (the original Formula has a tendency to leave a white cast behind), so I gave NXY a try. I purchased the Blotting powder in Medium-Dark, and the slight color was nice, but the problems associated with the product are absurd. The powder is messy, so even the lightest application caused the product to fall out-- waste of product & it often sprinkled on my clothing. Ugh. My biggest mistake was continuing to use the product, because once it thinned out a bit the mess and waste became irreversible. I've never dropped, smashed or knocked the compact around, but recently on my way to work , I opened the compact to use at a stoplight. Big mistake! The powder had cracked so badly that when I opened the compact powder fell out like an avalanche. My clothes were blanketed, both the inside and outside of my purse, and my car seat. Did I mention I was on my way to work? The mess was ridiculous! I've used compact powder for 40 years, and this has never happened before. I should have another month of product left in the compact, but now it's completely unusable, and going in the trash. Enormous waste of money! I've included two photos. One pic is NXY Blotting Powder, and the other pic is the competitor which costs about $2 more. I can live with the white cast. Good grief!

            I buy this product all the time as a finishing powder. My skin is on the oily side, but this product doesn't clump and I only need to reapply 2-3 times during the workday.
