MAC Pressed Blotting Powder

A unique pressed powder designed primarily to provide shine control without adding any noticeable colour or texture. Sets foundation, finishes faces. For use in professional situations and for frequent touch-ups. Blot Powder contains Mica and Silica to adsorb excess oils and reduce shine on the skin's surface. Can be applied with the puff that comes in the compact or with a powder brush like #129 Powder/Blush Brush. Perfect for touching up Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation throughout the day.

Product weight:
12 g / 0.42 US oz

US$23.00 (from Official Mac website)
But I got mine for $26 at Duty Free Philippines

-Love the fact that it's pressed, compact and easy to carry around
- It feels lightweight and doesn't cake (based on my experience as I don't apply much)
- It controls oiliness specially on my forehead for a long time. Whenever I use this as a finishing powder, my face stays on oil free for the whole day. Noticed that I barely need to touch up my face.
-No pungent smell 
-Not chalky nor powdery.
-Works well with my BB creams and foundation

-I don't like much the puff that comes with it. It's not a sponge nor a soft puff that I like. I prefer a soft powder brush in applying this.
-It's a steep price for a blotting powder.
-I got a darker shade. Should have followed the MUA's advise instead (Light). I wanted to go for medium but it wasn't available. Choices left are light or medium dark. I'm like "Geez, I don't think I'm that fair to go for Light." Well yeah, lesson learned! Anyway, the shade is pretty workable since it's almost translucent.

 Packaging difference with MAC Studio Fix.
