Let’s be honest: nobody wants shiny-looking skin and yet, that doesn’t mean we want to revert back to the dry, matte look that reigned during the ’80s either. The makeup experts at M.A.C have, of course, come up with a face-saving compromise: their unique Blot Powder Pressed provides shine control without adding any noticeable texture or colour. This nearly invisible oil-absorbing powder contains mica and silica to absorb excess oils and reduce shine. But what we really appreciate is that the compact comes with its own powder puff so that we can manage the look and feel of our skin all day long. And no matter how hot and humid the weather may be or how frequently we pat a little powder on, our skin never looks greasy or cakey.
