Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

I have tried countless products and this is the first one that actually controls the oil and shine on my face for an extended period of time. I was so amazed that I actually had my husband take a look as I couldn't believe it. I have combination skin which is very oily in the T-zone and quite dry everywhere else. This blotting powder took care of the shine and yet didn't highlight any of the dry patches of my complexion. I have a fair to medium skin colour. I initially tried the Light-Medium shade which looks fine although I feel it is a bit fair on me and I will likely use it more in the winter. Then I purchased the Medium-Dark and surprisingly I actually prefer this shade as I find I get good coverage as well as shine control when I wear it on its own without foundation. If your skin sounds like mine, I HIGHLY recommend this product. My search is over!

Too dry

By Jazlynn

from Cheyenne

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

This says it gives off a matte finish, but it just makes your skin very VERY dry and it clumps up in your oily spots. I hate that I wasted my money on this.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

    I love this blotting powder! Good compact with a nice sized mirror, and pale girls - rejoice! - for the first time in my life, I am NOT using the lightest shade of a product! It controls shine well and looks great over BB Cream/Concealer or even just over moisturizer! I keep one on my vanity for getting ready in the morning and keep one in my handbag for touch-ups (though it lasts well - I have actually had to stop myself from habitually touching up because I don't need it as much as I am used to in the past with other brands!)

        NYX has done it again. Excellent product. I am very very pale so i actually use this as a pressed powder! It works wonderfully.

            I've always had problem with shine in my t-zone. But thanks to this product, it is not a problem anymore! I can apply makeup early in the day with this powder over my foundation and it will last all day without shine. I will definitely keep buying this product!

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Blotting Powder:

            Application is very messy, powder goes everywhere and gets on my clothes. Initial look is smooth and matte, but that only lasts about an hour before shine breaks through. Compact only lasts about 3 weeks. I am looking for a replacement product.

              I don't wear foundation. I have sensitive skin and hate the feel of heavy powders. This powder was very light. Has slight coverage. Controls shine. Like how it feels like I'm not wearing anything.

              I use this as a lightweight finishing powder. I'm so happy I can actually find a shade to match me (light). It's great and never looks Cakey.
