        This foundation powder is awesome! Best I've ever used! It covers every blemish and leaves a porcelain look without making you look like you are wearing a ton of makeup. I have oily skin, and this foundation has helped TREMENDOUSLY! If I need to reapply later on in the day, it does not look caked on but rather fresh and flawless! Love it, love it, love it!

          I struggle with oily skin and have used multiple products to help control shine. I thought I would give this powder a try and I'm pretty pleased. It does help control shine and give a nice matte finish. When applied, I find that is does not mess up my makeup. For me, it helped control shine for up to 3 hours. I have used Mally Poreless Face Defender in the past and I find that this product works much better in controlling shine and is a lot less expensive.

            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.
