Made Me Look Like a Ghost

By Meena

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Blotting Powder:

I was looking for an affordable blotting powder I could carry with me in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. I saw the good reviews on this powder and I was intrigued. Unfortunately, I did not like this powder and ended up returning it. I got the shade Medium/Dark, which honestly shouldn't even be called that. It was in no way medium OR dark. I don't understand why they even offer different shades of this powder, because all of the shades are entirely too light for the skin tone they're supposed to work with. The powder definitely blots/mattifies, I'll give it that. I tested it out on my oily areas after a day of wearing makeup and it got rid of the shine. However, it mattifies TOO much, to the point it just sucks out all the life from my face and makes me look dead. The powder also doesn't blend in with my makeup, it seems to sit on top of my skin, and because it's too light for my skin tone, it made me look extremely splotchy/ashy/casket-ready. Even my mother pointed out how ashy I looked. Unfortunately my search for a good, affordable blotting powder continues.

    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Blotting Powder:

    I use this powder to set my foundation every day and I absolutely love it! It keeps my face from getting oily even after a full day of wearing my makeup (8-10+ hours). It honestly works better for me than higher end setting powders that are $30+ dollars. They don't sell this product at my Ulta store anymore but I will continue to purchase online because it is that good!

        This is a good product but the case does not prevent breakage. I have to keep it in the box. I still enjoy the product itself.

          Works like blotting paper to reduce shine yet provides some coverage. Perfect for that late day "freshen up" for your makeup.

            I put it on after all my other face makeup and it makes my skin feel and look smooth. It also makes my contour and highlight look more blended..not sure why...but definitely like I look way better with it. I also use it to make me feel less oily..which also helps my makeup stay on. I tend to touch my face.

            This was great over primer or bb cream. It's also great for after work before going out at night when my face becomes oily looking.
