Micro-fine, sheer and silky. Pressed for portability. Goes on lightly. Won’t shift your shade or leave its mark. Lets skin’s natural vitality and freshness glow through. Comes with its own suede-finish sponge. Blurs lines. Makes skin look flawless.
I have to agree with every part of this. The texture of the powder is soft and fine. The compact is fragrance and shimmer free. While the powder has a sheer texture, the powder can easily be built up for superior coverage. A special mention for the puff applicator which comes with this compact must be made. It is the softest, most easy to use powder puff which picks up the powder competently and blends it effortlessly.
Mac Sheer Select Pressed Powder is available at Mac Online and Mac Stores Nationwide £19.00.
