    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

    Primer? That's Right! If you're like me and have VERY OILY skin give this proudct a shot! Goss Makeup Artist on Youtube has a video on how to use powder BEFORE your liquid foundation to fill your oily pores and make your foundation look amazing and last all day! Throw this in your bag for touch ups throughout the day to erase shine.

      I use this product in the afternoon when I feel like my skin is a bit shiny. It really works great! I don't even need to use my powder foundation during the day.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

        Tried this for first time today after it arrived yesterday and loved it. Have tried several mattifying products in the past for my very oily (but doesn't need coverage) skin and this one is definitely on top right now. Applies super smooth and silky and lasts long, and super sheer just as I like it. The matte effect is extreme so consider using only on t-zone or adding a bit of highlighting powder so that face still looks contoured. The color is too much on the light side (I have medium-tan asian skin) and medium/deep shade looks like white powder on my face when first applied, though it does blend out well, so consider getting this several shades deeper unless if you are very fair.

          This product does exactly what it says it's going to do. It helped to reduce the shine on my face. I didn't look like a ghost either. It gives good coverage also. I would repurchase this again.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

            I am on a medication that makes my skin incredibly oily. This blotting powder has been my salvation! I've tried other powders, which just went on cakey and uneven. I tried mattifying gels and creams which felt too heavy on my skin. I find that this blotting powder goes on very light and even. On otherwise bare skin, it completely eliminates shine. Luckily, my skin is clear enough that this is the only product I need to use. Their ad copy is right: you get that matte, old Hollywood look. Other reviewers said that it lasts all day. My incredibly oily skin needs a touch-up or two. But I don't care! I feel so polished when I'm wearing it. It looks great in photos, too.

            I was torn between the medium shade and the light shade. The Ulta sales rep was correct in pointing me to the lighter shade.

            This blends well over your foundation. Goes on a little darker than expected, as long as you stay away from under the eyes, it works good. It just puts the finishing touches on your make up.

            I use tha product on an eveyday basis along with other nyx products and it works very well.. my only complaint is I have to buy the powder about evry two to two in a half weeks because they dont give you very much. Ive used neutrogenas healthy skin powder which give about tha same coverage maybe more and works better for me in tha winter.. this product is great other than it will settle in fine lines or creases.. but it you dont have any.. nothing to worry about I would purchase again.. but it gets pricey having to purchase every two weeks when tthee are similar products I can buy that last me a month and cover tha same or better.. but this product deffinately is on tha top of my list for mattifying blotting powders!! (:

            I have combo skin, mostly oily and this powder does the trick! It's super long lasting and I only have to blot maybe 1x a day. HOWEVER, it only lasted 3 months! I was hoping on getting maybe more use out of the product and I will buy again but I wish there was more product.

            My friends told me to try this to help control my shine throughout the day, so I was excited to try it because I didn't want to spend over $20 just for a blot powder or shine control powder. I tried giving this product a chance a couple times, but sadly it just didn't satisfy me. I noticed I got shinier even quicker when I started using this powder and so I just returned it a couple of days later.
