Does your everyday makeup routine feel like there’s something missing? Chances are, that means there is. One of the most underrated products in the beauty realm is tinted pressed powder. Similar to how bronzer works to add bold definition to a cream-contoured face, pressed powder adds extra pigment and helps cover any blemishes and imperfections that your cream foundations and concealers are just not able to disguise. They also help get rid of any unwanted grease and oil left behind by your cream and liquid cosmetics, leaving a perfectly matted and natural finish to your face.

So, now that we’ve got you convinced to getting one of these beauty essentials, you need to know which pressed powder is the right powder to keep your makeup fresh and on point all day long. And lucky for you, M.A.C. Cosmetics just created the pressed powder of every beauty addict’s dreams. The brand new M.A.C. Cosmetics Studio Waterweight Pressed Powders are the beauty gift sent from the cosmetics Gods themselves (a.k.a. M.A.C. Cosmetics, of course), and are the newest additions to the beauty cult-favorite Studio Waterweight line, which is meant to give your skin some hydration and nourishment while making it look ready for the camera, catwalk, or a just a day out on the town.

These highly pigmented powders give your skin extra pigment and glow without looking greasy, oily, or smudged. They’re also formulated with a whirlwind of nourishing ingredients to keep your face feeling fresh all day long, without a gross cakey feeling that has you running home to wash your face before major breakouts appear. Like most products in the Studio Waterweight collection, these pressed powders have a medium, buildable finish to allow you to play with the amount of coverage you need. Apply over foundation to give it some extra color, or even wear it on its own to cover some tiny blemishes.

These six shades alone prove just how staggeringly pigmented these powders are. The powders have such a pigmented finish that they can easily substitute your regular bottle of liquid concealer, and it won’t give off any shine or greasy residue like most cream and liquid formulas. With just one swipe with the small applicator brush or sponge that comes with these powders (because M.A.C. loves to treat us in any little way possible), your skin will go from dull to glowing with color in no time.

This powder is perfect for both makeup minimalists and beauty addicts everywhere, and should be added to your beauty utility belt ASAP! If you want to grab one of these amazing pressed powders, then head over to your nearest M.A.C. Cosmetics store, or to their website where you can check out all 11 of these highly pigmented products!
