MAC Pro Set Powder - Invisible

 So MAC PRO Set Powders come in seven shades, they include:
o       MAC Lilac: Whisper soft lavender
o       MAC Peach: Light-medium beige peach
o       MAC Deep Peach: Medium-deep beige with neutral peach undertones
o       MAC Soft Yellow: Creamy soft yellow
o       MAC Dusty Rose: Very soft pink
o       MAC Porcelain: Soft white
o       MAC Invisible: Transparent ivory

I liked that the invisible powder has a matte finish that absorbs oil for relatively long periods of time. It definitely keeps me less oily throughout the day, although one thing to note is that it does depend on what type of base is used. I’ve tried different products and the best results were produced with the heavier coverage products. I have combination oily skin and it seems to work well overall, I only have to use very little to get good coverage.
This powder is also a godsend in the summer, when I tan and go up a few shades, meaning that all my winter powders are of no use! so this powder is absolutely perfect because, well its Invisible! It also means that this will work for almost anyone and with any skin tone. Although, when doing research on this product, some of the complaints were that it tends to look ashy on darker complexions. So I recommend trying a sample first before purchasing if you have doubts.
This product $22 for 0.28 oz jar, it’s a huge makeup jar! It’s a great price for a good size. This is only available through MAC Pro, however anyone can order via the phone if you do not have a MAC store near you.
I recommend this to everyone especially for liquid foundation users. It’s a lot of set powder that will last for a good amount of time. If you’re skin is extremely oily and you wear heavier products, this could be a godsend.
I haven’t tried the Laura Mercier translucent powder, so I can’t really compare this product, I do intend to purchase this in the near future, so be on the look up for a review!
