My Experience with MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder NC-40

I am in love with this brand, as its products are awesome and it is really good for skin. The pressed powder which I have purchased few days back, and have used it twice, made me drool for it. It stays for long hours on my face and it has a magnificent finish. Its texture is grainy but it smoothens on your face that gives my face a smooth and silky finish. It controls the sweat on my face too, in hot summers.


4.5 Out of 5.
