Women with oily skin know how tricky it can be to hide the shine on their face… especially in the summer.

As someone with oily skin, I’ve tried many different setting and blotting powders trying to reduce the shine I always had on my face after applying my makeup. Many women with oily skin have a bit of a struggle to find a product that will help get rid of that annoying shine to their face while keeping their makeup on.

A great blotting powder is the MAC Cosmetics Blot Powder Pressed. At an affordable price of $23, this blot powder is a great item to add to your collection. In fact, it’s a product that many new make wearers should purchase when starting their makeup collection.

The lightweight powder was created to limit the shine without giving you any additional color to the face. The product has Silica and Mica that will absorb any excess oils on your face, which will than reduce any shine your face might have. It comes with a little powder puff so you can toss the compact in your purse for any touch ups throughout the day. In the end this will save you money since you won’t need any blotting tissue.

The blot powder does an amazing job at reducing the amount of shine on my face throughout the day. There are times when I might have to touch up, but that’s mainly when it’s really hot or humid outside.

To help make the makeup stay on longer, it’s always best to add a face primer before adding your foundation. The primer helps keep the makeup in place. Once the makeup is applied, simply use a setting spray and you’re good to go.

Mac Blot Powder Pressed costs $23 and can be purchased at Mac free standing stores, the MAC pro store on Armitage in Chicago and department stores like Macy's, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales in Chicago.
