Review: Mac Studio Care Blend Pressed Powder

This is one of my favourite products to use and I don’t know why I haven’t posted about it before.

I buy lots of powders to keep my T-zone shine free during the day and for touch ups.

I’ve been through a lot of them, and some are ok, but nothing works like this beauty!

I use the Medium colour which shocked me, as I’m very pale and am usual an NW20 in foundations from Mac.

I think the Light colour would probably wash me out as it is the right colour, just didn’t expect it!

As always I love the sleek black packaging. It makes them easy to throw in your bag, it just annoys me how easily they scratch and tarnish as I love how they look when they’re shiny!

This comes with a mirror and sponge as you would expect so it really is perfect for touch ups on the go

It doesn’t last me the entire day when I apply it in the morning, though I expect this is more likely to be down to the primer and foundation I use as I’m trying to use up other brands at the moment that aren’t quite as reliable as Mac.

This powder is amazing in my opinion, though I would much rather it be at a lower price obviously!

It does hit pan quite quickly when you use it every morning and also for touch ups throughout the day and the £20 price tag for 10g is a little steep.

However you get what you pay for, and with Mac you always know where you are!

What powder do you use to keep your make up set for the day?

I have a few others that I might do a post on soon to try and encourage me to use them up!
