This was great over primer or bb cream. It's also great for after work before going out at night when my face becomes oily looking.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Blotting Powder:

        I carry a compact to freshen up my look and reduce shiny skin. This product works like a dream, plus provides a bit of cover up (e.g., reduces the look of dark circles under my eyes at the end of the day).

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Blotting Powder:

        I use this for blotting oil throughout the day when my forehead and nose get shiny. It blots well and looks natural. I do have to reuse it during the day but that may be my oiliness which I think is mostly due to moisturizer with sunscreen.

              • Q:

                Do you use this product after you apply foundation? Or here is a better way to ask this question: When applying makeup, at what times do you use the blotting powder? Does it take the place of foundation, or can you use it after foundation, or before?

                  A:

                  This product is extremely sheer, so it does not take the place of foundation. Lightly dust over foundation to set it and reapply throughout the day as needed to keep skin mattified and shine-free.

                  This product features the barest hint of pigment, so if very sheer coverage is all you need, you could use it as a foundation.
