My new go to powder compact is Mac’s Prolongwear Pressed Powder! This powder is absolutely amazing whether you want to use a light hand and use it as a skin finish or if you just want to do a powder day and wear it as your main foundation. It’s coverage is medium to full depending on how much powder you apply. It comes with a makeup powder puff, which is great for using it as a foundation but, I like to use my Mac 150 makeup brush to apply it as a skin finish because it allows me to pick up less powder and is much easier to control on my face. I love this powder because it is yet another product that helps to keep me matte all day long, which you I love, but, it also it is a Prolongwear product which last for AT LEAST 8-12 hours.

Loved that this product was pressed so it was easy to take with me anytime I went out. It is a little pricey in my opinion but the results had be coming back for more. There was hardly any kickback when brushing the powder on and no flashback in photos. Controlled oil and shine well and held my makeup set in place all day. I’m a full coverage kind of gal so this powder was amazing to top on to a medium/full coverage foundation without looking too cakey.

I have pretty much used up all of my product of this,it's soft and covers well, it doesn't make my makeup look cakey like some pressed powders do when I wear them along with a liquid foundation. But the colors are all alittle off from my skin tone. I'm very pale most foundations don't match exactly so I can't be to upset about that. But the price, I understand it's a more high-end makeup but it does exactly what a $5 pressed powders would do.

Love this stuff, the finish is amazing but they do not have my skin color at all. i have such a hard time with MAC because I love their products but nothing matches me. I have bad skin so I have to have a really close match to avoid looking like I am wearing a mask, I wear this stuff anyways, even though it is not my color because it finishes so well but I really only wear it at night when it is dark and I can get away with having makeup not totally my color.

I use this to set my liquid foundation and add some extra coverage. I have very oily skin and while this doesnt mattify my t zone, it doesnt add to the oil slick either. The packaging is standard for a pressed powder but at 30ish dollars i wish it was a little nicer. The reason for the four star review instead of five is that it does oxidize once you start getting oily.

I love this powder foundation. It lasts nicely considering pressed powder foundations tend to go pretty fast. The price is pretty decent too. My favorite way to apply this foundation is with a dense buffing brush to build up a flawless full coverage. It lasts nicely throughout the day and is perfect for a touch up powder on top of any other makeup.

Really good for touch ups after a long day, is not cakey at all. Good, compact packaging; does not take up much space. The darker shades are amazing as well and I use it as a bronzer as well. Looks very natural because it is so light. It's quite pricey but MAC tends to be on the higher end.

Love this powder 😍 it is so high coverage and gorgeous on the skin! It is an essential step for a night out or a big event. It’s great for oily skin especially but I didn’t have any issues on my dryer skin type. It looked great! Not too expensive for the amount of product you get either!

Mac forever will have the best full coverage make up ever so if you want it to cover up this is the product for you! This is my go to full coverage, dramatic look powder. It’s not for every day and with the right primer it will keep me matte all day! You can never go wrong with Mac.

I'm a big fan! Great coverage, matte finish, and seems to be long lasting.

My only small complaint is there is a lot of loose/lost powder when applying with a fluffy brush. I use the soft pad that came with it and then buff with a brush afterwards- This seems to help save product.

I have been looking for a pressed powder, but i have an oily complexion. Is this a good long lasting powder? I don't like when it looks like it soaks in my pores.
