Mac prep+prime transparent finishing/pressed powder review n swatches

Posted by Amani Zaara at 16:51
Hi beauties ..

M back with a new Mac product review.. V all struggle to find a perfect compact powder for us.. Either it don't match with our foundation or our shade.. Finding perfect powder has always been a issue..
To resolve this transparent powders have been introduced.. This transparent powders can b used on any skin tones dark to light..

Price: 1550/- 6.3g

What product claims:

A colorless powder for all skin tone.
Reduces shine n controls oil.
Minimizes fine lines & imperfections.
Gives your makeup finishing look.


Packaging is definitely a thumbs up for all the Mac products.. This powder comes in a sparkly black box. The compact is a shiny black in case n also sleek n travel friendly.. It has a mirror inside. Comes with a white color pressed powder which becomes transparent after blending..

My take on the product:

At first when I saw the product by a makeup artist I was like ' WHITE POWDER ON MY FACE' ru serious??? But yes after she applied on my face n I could see a large difference.. At first I wanted to buy a much hyped mineralise skin finish powder.. But then I tried skin finish on 1 half n this on other.. N u no I've come home back with the transparent one.. Mineralise skin finish gives u a little shiny look while this is a total matte product..
This transparent powder is perfect for combination to oily skin type. As this powder controls shine n keeps your make up from caking or getting oily.. While I have a combination skin type my t-zones get oily after few hours.. This pressed powder definitely controls shine n combat oil for a long time.. 
This powder is totally invisible.. It's great for regular makeup as well as on heavy makeup.. As it gives very natural look n does not looks like u have applied anything above your foundation. It just matti files n set your foundation . It can stop u looking like a clown with a heavy coverage foundation n then powder over it, it just does not show up on your face at all. M totally impressed with this product.. 
But u need to b very careful using it.. Little is more for this powder, since it's a white translucent powder little can give u the finish. If u apply more u might end up with a white cast on your face .. So apply a very little with a large powder brush n a very light hand.. N that's it.. 

It does not have any brush.
Might b expensive but I think it's worth it.
Might give u white cast if applied more.

Rating: 4.5/5

Overall verdict:

Awesome product for all skintones splay for oily or combination type, long lasting, oil controlling, matte look, sets very fine n does not show up, gives u a very natural finish. I highly highly recommend everyone .. Best powder if come across till now.. Comes in loose powder n pressed version .
