MAC Next To Nothing: Pressed Powder and Face Colour for Radiant Skin

MAC’s stellar new collection has been taking the makeup world by storm with its one of a kind Next To Nothing formula that apparently, can be mixed with all your other MAC products to get very interesting combinations.

The collection features a Face Colour in a 35ml, frosted bottle with a cap that can be locked and a Pressed Powder in a 10g, classic MAC compact.


The Next To Nothing Face Colour is made in the U.S.A while the Pressed Powder is made in Italy.

I have both in the shade medium deep.

I am an NC45 and medium deep is a good match with the Face Colour but the powder shades in this collection run lighter than usual, so the powder is a little light for me on its own when I get slightly tanned. Otherwise, it is alright but I wouldn’t say it’s a perfect match.

It would be best for you to get colour matched in store to avoid disappointments.

I chose medium deep because that is my shade in the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural but MAC recommends the shade Dark for NC44/45 skin tones.

The powder comes with an average applicator.

The applicator is one-sided unlike the two-sided Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation applicator.

It works fine but I prefer to use a brush with the powder for even application.

What MAC says it is?

A creamy, lightweight formula that boasts long-lasting, high comfort wear. The silky-soft texture features micro-light boosters that guarantee the look of healthy radiance – no filters needed! The result is a soft-focused glow. Offering sheer to medium buildable coverage and a natural luminous finish

Do I agree?

Yes, I do.


I was expecting it to have a much more sheer coverage since the face colour is very sheer, but the powder was a pleasant surprise.

It’s very finely milled and super lightweight so it does not get cakey or clog pores. It gives just enough coverage while adding a glow similar to that of the face colour, that I absolutely love!

The glow makes you skin look radiant and well-rested.

I really don’t have anything bad to say about this powder, except that it can be tricky to find the right shade.

The Face Colour, I wouldn’t recommend wearing it on its own. It’s best worn mixed with foundation or set with powder.

Mixed together.


That’s what I was talking about all along.

Test it out at your local MAC store and see if you like it.

I like it very much.

It’s for those of you who like to experiment with your makeup and enjoy mixing things up.

It is far from a serious, full coverage product but more of a fun, experimental one.
