Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Controls Shine
  • Covers Well

Cons

  • Can Be Powdery
  • Can Be Too Light

Best Uses

  • Dry Skin
  • Oily Skin
  • Sensitive Skin

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

Being extremely pale I use a darker tone for a light contour. It can be hard to get this product on the brush but if you arnt careful it can fly everywhere.
I use this powder for contour because its color range has a nice non-orange-y tone.

  • Natural Looking

Cons

  • Light Fragrance

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

This powder is affordable and does what it claims. I'm Asian, with yellow undertone, and am typically MAC shade NC30-35. I got this in light-medium and it does a great job at removing shine mid-day. I use a brush and not the puff it comes with, and it gives an invisible, natural finish and is very lightweight. I can apply multiple times throughout the day without it caking up.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

    I bought it as all my makeup is in storage right now while I'm moving and I'm glad I did. Picking my color was a bit hard. I ended up needing the deep color which was strange as I usually need a much lighter beige color. But all in all it doesn't cake up and helps cover my oily t-zone when necessary.

            I use this to touch up in the middle of the day, my skin is super oily. First I blot with a paper towel and then I blot with the powder. I just wished it lasted a little longer.

            I like the heavier coverage this powder has, especially when i'm applying later in the day.

            Work's wonders

            By Eni

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

            I just recently purchased this blotting powder and although I've only used it once thus far I love it. I was currently using the Mac blotting powder but the max I could go without retouching was 2 hrs. I can definitely last 4 plus hours with this one plus my skin just looks so smooth. I will definitely be re-purchusing this plus the price is even better.
