I heart NYC. Not only is it one of the greatest cities in the world, it’s a place where I can indulge my MAC makeup fetish on the cheap! So, after having found myself trudging through the 90 degree heat last week, I wandered through to the air conditioned Macy’s department store for a little bit of light relief at the MAC makeup counter.
Fed up with carrying around blotting papers and loose powder? If, like me, you suffer from a shiny T Zone or have oily skin, then MAC blotting powder is just the ticket. It comes in a sleek little compact and really does what it says on the tin.
Having tried the paler shade for my snowy skin, it made me look a little too light so instead I went for the medium/dark shade. Over my foundation, it gave me all the coverage I needed, evened out my skin tone and took the shine away instantly. As it’s pressed powder, it takes out all the hassle and easily fits into my makeup bag. It comes with a puff and is feather light on your skin. I prefer to use a powder brush to apply it, but the puff works just as well if you don’t fancy lugging a brush around.
It’s an essential if you have to dash to the ladies to powder your nose and it’s a must have to apply over your foundation to ‘fix’ your look. What’s more, it lasted for hours on me despite the searing heat, and it’s all you need to carry on a night out to keep yourself looking flawless. And at £16, it’s affordable too.
