MAC Next to Nothing Pressed Powder Review and Swatches

 The MAC Next to Nothing Pressed Powder is the latest addition to MAC's huge offering of powder products. MAC Next to Nothing launches in North America on April 6th and Internationally on April 20th. It retails for $27 US/ $38 CAD and will be sold anywhere MAC Cosmetics is available. You can see the powder in action, I reviewed it on my YouTube Channel, I did a wear test on my oily skin! See my review of the Next to Nothing Face Colour here

"The Next to Nothing Pressed Powder offers a creamy, transformative lightweight formula for long-lasting, high comfort wear. The silky-soft texture boasts micro-light boosters that guarantee the look of radiant skin - no filters needed!"
Unlike the majority of MACs line, this follows a different shade range naming convention. There are 9 shades in the range which is quite small in comparison to the majority of MAC products. The shades available are listed below.
MAC Next Nothing Powder Shades:
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Light - pale ivory
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Light Plus - light beige
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Medium - warm beige
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Medium Plus - light tan beige
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Medium Dark - caramel beige
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Medium Deep - rich golden tan
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Dark - deep caramel
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Dark Plus - neutral tan beige
MAC Next to Nothing Powder Dark Deep - rich golden bronze
The Next to Nothing Powder is super smooth and creamy as described. A little bit of powder kick up but that doesn't bother me when the texture is spot on. It has more pigmentation/coverage than I was expecting but nothing heavy be any means. It does add some coverage to your skin, which I like in a powder. I was expecting it to be essentially translucent with a tint but that is not the case. It also somewhat mattify the foundation so if you have dry skin you may want to skip the powder, use it lightly or just in the places you want to ensure are set. Something important to note is the powder is much darker on the face than in the pan. At least with the shade Dark. In the pan I didn't think it would match me but then on my face it was almost a little too dark with a red undertone. I'm an NC 42/43 generally at MAC.

I like this powder and will continue to use it to set my makeup. I also liked it in combination with the Next to Nothing Face Colour, it gave a really nice look to my skin.  I also used the powder to set my concealer, I went a little heavy handed the first time and it was slightly cakey because I did not expect much colour. Overall, I think the line is really nice! I do however think the "Next to Nothing" claim is slightly off, it is beautiful and lightweight but not as bare in coverage as I was expecting. That being said it is not a turn off for me, it is very buildable and versatile depending on your needs.
