      Love this product it's easy to carry being a pressed powder. I work in a smokey environment so it causes my face to get oily but when I apply this it really helps to control the shine very well.

        Best setting powder I've used

        By Candy S.

        from San Francisco

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder:

        This makes my face look airbrushed in photos. I am Olive skin toned and use this lightly all over. You have to use a good brush because it goes a long way in spreading such a fine powder. I don't think I'll be able to use any other powder moving forward.

            Worst powder ever

            By Paulina

            from Mexico

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder:

            Where do I begin with this powder? This powder it's probably the worst powder I've ever purchased. It's chalky as heck and what's even weird it's that in the pan it feels smooth and creamy but when you look at the swatch in your finger it looks terribly powdery and chalky. When you try to pick up the powder with a brush there's barely any product in there and it feels like you are applying nothing to your face. It doesn't control oil, whether you put it over or on top of your makeup. And if you are planning on taking pictures with the flash on, stay away from this powder! You will look ghostly as heck and I'm pretty fair, I can only imagine how this thing would look like on a person of color. Overall this powder it's not worth it and I won't be repurchasing again. The only positive thing I have to say about this product it's that it blurs your pores and it's very lightweight.

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder:

            I still haven't used it because it did not come with any applicator. I need a pad and now must go to a store to buy one. Inconvenient..... I have used the loose transparent powder and love it!

            Best Powder!

            By Tiani14

            from Thomasville, NC, USA

            Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder:

            After trying many finishing powders, I have found this to be the most effective. I am incredibly picky when it comes to makeup, and let me tell you this stuff is awesome!I have pale, dry skin that gets oilier as the day progresses. This powder helps set my foundation and gives me an overall smooth, more even complexion. Of course, in order for it to work its magic make sure you prime your skin before your foundation and use a finishing spray!

            I tried this product and it doesn't control facial oil. I will be returning it.
