Most Helpful Positive Review A Tad Tricky but Worth the Hype
I've hear a lot of different opinions on this product so I decided to give it a try. I went to my local counter and was first matched to medium deep, however prior to purchase the employee advised that I get the dark. She applied it and at the store it looked great. I made my purchase and noticed after time it oxidized and it looked like I had a beautiful Hershey's chocolate glow all over my face. Though the color was pretty it didn't match me at all. I was really shocked because in the container it seemed to be a great match. I went back the next day and got the original color match medium deep. It looks light in the container but it is truly the perfect oxidation for my complexion. I wear it both with just concealer, and to set my Match Masters 7.0 foundation. I always get compliments whenever I wear it. So this is worth it you just have to find your correct match. I only gave it four stars because of the difficulty to find the perfect shade can be a little tricky.
I like the mirror compact its sleek, however you have to be careful when opening it. I think the bottom should have a small puff for touch ups since the mirror is there, but I must admit I'm a dry skin girl and once I place this on with a big powder brush it stays put. Overall beautiful finish, and this a great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great but not for oily skin
Love the powder however it doesn't stay put on my face. I've got combination skin with T-zone being EXTREMLY oily (half an hour of make up and my nose becomes a waterfall of oil). Its not even T-zone its JUST my nose. This powder the texture and look of it is GORGEOUS. I got matched with Medium Dark and it looks good first 10 minutes but then it oxidises like crazy and it ends up being three shades darker. I use it almost as a bronzer because its waaaaay too dark so beaware.. the colour may LOOK right on your skin in the beginning but as the day goes on it changes colour. For people with dry skin i think this would be amazing. The powder is sooO soft and it gives an instant glow and radiance to my face (it doesn't cover anything). It would be amazing if the colour suited i would use it over my make up for the glow however as for staying power for people with skin like mine this wouldn't be enough as a setting powder. I tend to use it directly after makeup and not sure if this "glow" contributes to my skin looking extra oily afterwards or not but I'm going to be sticking to my select sheer pressed powder for now. This was an alternative cos I wanted to try something new but am definitely going back to that. Mineralise Skin Finish Natural is very light and feathery and isn't as heavy as select sheer but for staying power and controlling my oils this definitely doesn't do the trick :(

Not for sensitive skin
Nikki from Virginia
I've used this product for years, mainly because I was afraid of switching to something new. As a bronzer, this looked muddy on me, even when applied with a light hand. The main reason I'm stopping use of this is due to the breakouts it's been causing. I put this mainly in my cheekbones and that is where I have been breaking out. Although Mac claims this is Jon acenic (so?) if you look at the ingredient list there are so many acne causing ingredients in this.
Leigh from CA
Love this powder! I can't say enough good things about this product. Makes my skin look so flawless. If you are NC20, use medium and NC25, use medium plus. This powder over foundation is a must in my makeup routine! Total game changer!
Holy Grail Face Powder
akf333 from MN
Absolutely love this product—always go back to it!! I use the shade Light Plus and it matches my skin perfectly. Never looks heavy or powdery, and feels like you have nothing on your skin. I use it almost everyday and I usually put an SPF under it that serves as my primer, and then I put bronzer and highlight on as well. Other products layer nicely under it and over it. I've tried other powders and none of them beat this. It applies nicely with a puff, sponge, or brush. Definitely recommend if you want something light, but will still cover up and make skin look smooth and even!
Tanya from TX
I love the shade. I prefer natural look and this does the job. Also their products does cause my skin to break out.
Best face powder!!!

I am 41 and this is the best powder I have ever used. It doesn't leave you with a powdery, dry finish. It is absolutely AMAZING!!! Loveeee......
Whit from Asheville
This product is always in my bag! I have fair skin but shade medium is perfect for me.
Medium Deep and Dark
Shera from Philadelphia
This product is absolutely beautiful. I've heard nothing but great things so I decided to try it in two shades . Dark and Medium Deep . Depending on the foundation I use determines the shade . In Fenty I am shade 345 and it works well with the medium deep when I want more color I reach for my dark . Definitely worth the buy great beautiful finish
This powder is great!

GIVE ME SUN = THE BEST
Drea from Upland, CA
I have been using this powder for years. This has to be my all time favorite, hands down! Give Me Sun is the perfect bronzer color for me (NC20). I've tried to find something like this and nothing compares, I always come back to it. This is more of a warm orangey bronzer, so if you're looking for a cool toned bronzer, this is not for you.
Will be returning
Jessyyh from Arlington, VA
This powder looks nice in pictures, it gives you a non-powdery look which I liked. It works for dry skin.. HOWEVER this is not for my sensitive skin. I noticed shortly after using this my cheeks were covered in little pimples. I also wasn't fond of the shade range. The undertones in these powders are either too red or too yellow. I will be returning this.
Medium golden is my holy grail bronzer/contour
Betty from CA
I am soooo happy mac added this shade to the range. Please please never get rid of it. It is the most natural contour for mt Nc15 skintone. Its not orange and lasts all day. This is one of my favorite mac product ever!!
Love this powder
Jess from Novi, MI
I love this powder, it's very light and sheer, good for a light makeup or no makeup look. Will buy this again!
I would buy this product again and again!!!
Nini from Jacksonville NC
I love love love this Mac powder! It's light and soft on your skin and looks soooo natural!!
Not the same product as sold in MAC stores, but it will do.
Ang from CA - California
I have used the mineral foundation from MAC for several years. Due to Covid, I figured it would be easiest to order through Ulta. I used the same description as my old container, but surprisingly it is not the same. This product is more matte. I like it, but prefer the original formula as it had a little more highlight shimmer to it and the color was a little more sun-kissed. This will do for the meantime.
Would buy this again.

Great product. It highlights in all the right places.
I CANNOT Believe I'm Saying This
Gabby from Illinois
A little backstory...
I have never had a good time with Mac products. As a girl with super dry skin, I have always hated walking past a Mac store because whenever I was in there, they could never find something meant for me.
BUT THIS IS IT.
Super natural, looks good with just concealer, and it LASTS. It keeps my oils at bay (except my forehead which is another story) and prevents creasing under my eyes. I'm dreading the day I hit pan on this product.
better then Laura mercier setting powder
beauty addict from idaho
this is honestly the best best best best compact setting powder I have even tried in my entire life I will allways re purchase this. it you want to set your foundation without making your lines and wrinkles more exhilarated. this is for you. if you want your pores to disappear? this is for you. this is better then laura mercier settings power because hers dried out my face and my pores looked bigger after applying.
Perfect finishing powder
GagaV from PA
I love this powder to finish my look - helps the foundation stay put, softens/blurs the lines in my face, and with their many tones, I've found the perfect match. Even in humidity, my face looks good. I've tried many other finishing powders and have found this one to work best for me. My face isn't usually oily or dry - I'm in the in-between stage finally at 67!
Dark and Lovely from Bellevue, Washington
This bronzer was the answer to this long year of being inside. Since I didn't buy a summer shade but did manage to get darker the bronzer gave me a smooth transition for blended skin tone. For my lovely melanin skin folk it's not ashy or dry! Works wonderfully.
Great pressed powder ♥️
Anonymous from Atlanta
I use Light Plus. I love this powder. I do not like powders that are super matte because I like a more natural look. This powder looks very natural on the skin. I use it over a tinted moisturizer.
Tmj3604 from Oroville California
I love Mac
It was the first time I bought over the Internet vs going to Mac makeup counter . Very happy with the experience
An excellent way to look flawless and natural!

I use it as finisher on my natural skin.
Perfect for Everyday Wear
Marla from Maryland
I love the glow this gives to my skin - it's not too dramatic, but gives the perfect amount so your skin looks healthy. I wear it both over liquid foundation and concealer or by itself on days I'm not feeling like wearing much makeup. Overall, I really enjoy it, but I do think it's a bit overpriced. I know it's MAC.... but I still think the price tag is high.
Rachel T. from Washington
I cannot live without this powder. It has enough coverage that you can put a little concealer on any problem areas and put this all over the face for a natural look. My favorite way to use this is after foundation, all over the face, before any other powders. I then put a light dusting of a translucent powder on areas where slipping can occur (under eyes, and T-zone, jaw line, and in the nose folds). I am obsessed with this method because it prevents the translucent powder from looking cakey or dry.
