I don’t like or dislike this product. I say that because I do not use it enough or often at all. I also thinks that speaks volumes. It is not a powder that I reach for. I have had it for over a year, and I just don’t seem to use it at all. The powder is smooth and makes your makeup come together but I don’t feel like it is a powder that will set your makeup substantially. I have other powders that I use to set my makeup, some more or less expensive and does a better job or a more memorable job 😉

This pressed powder gives your skin a completely flawless look! Sometimes I don’t want to bother with a loose setting powder so I grab this pressed powder and quickly set my foundation. Every time I do this I notice my skin looks completely flawless, even in car mirror lighting which is the worst! I’ve loved this pressed powder for years and I’ll always purchase it and reach for it.

Great powder to set over the foundation. Although I don’t use it on everyday basis. Instead I only it for occasion as the coverage of both the powder and foundation is quite heavy. It however gives a very flawless finish. Only somehow I find the product breaking down and caking the skin at the end of day. It although lasts for a good 6-7 hours.

So smooth, so perfect, looks great, love the smooth gem held formula. I use this as a setting powder on myself, and I have tons of colors for my kit. I also like to use a darker color than my complexion in this as a contour, it looks extremely natural. Worth the money, definitely performs.

I cannot say anything negative about my Mac products. The pressed powder helps give my Mac foundation a flawless finish. I like that it is a sheer pressed powder. It’s great to carry with me. Yes I will purchase again. I’m looking forward to trying some of the other Mac setting powders!

I love my Mac pressed powders. They are so smooth and look great on the skin. I really enjoy them and I have heard they are like the cover fx ones. I go for the matte finish ones but there are shimmer finishes. You get no creases with this product. I will repurchase again and again.

This stuff is as natural as it gets! I love how it can be used to set and touch up throughout the day. The formula also really blurs skin so you look perfect and believable. MAC never fails me. Keep it coming! M.A.C Cosmetics Select Sheer Pressed Powder

Do you use this product after your foundation and concealer (and everything else)? But before the finishing spray?
