It's expensive for the amount you get and how long it lasts...2 months tops if that! But this powder is AMAZING and it covers absolutely beautifully! Skin is flawless and shine free. Full coverage and the color I wear is 10 fair. Color match is awesome! One of my favorite powders for sure
This powder has been a pleasant surprise for me. I purchased this powder at a deep discount at Sephora, and set it aside for a long time. For reference, I am MAC NC 45/Revlon Colorstay Caramel. Wanting a light option, I put this on over Smashbox BB cream. It leaves such a smooth, airbrushed finish that is mattified yet so natural-looking after it blends with your skin's oils. However, with super oily skin like mine, it has a tendency to turn red when it oxidizes. I am generally pleased because this would be good to use for a light application when running around. I will use until it's gone. However, I will not repurchase because of the redness.
I purchased this product on impulse. I had been looking for a new setting powder and decided to try this. I really like this product! I purchased this to set my foundation but I found myself wearing this over a little concealer more often because it leaves my face looking so flawless. I am very impressed with the quality and finish. I am also very happy that there is a color that matches my skin tone perfectly!
However, it is a bit difficult to not get powder all over the place when loading up my brush. It is a very powdery product and I find that it does look a little powdery when I apply too much.
I picked up this pressed powder prior to my wedding because I heard great things about this product and wanted a setting powder which was HD ready for all the photos which were going to be taken on my wedding day. Since, I have fell in LOVE with this powder. This powder trumps all my other powders (MAC, Chanel, etc.). I chose powder #30 which is great for my current skintone, NC40. I find it hard finding a good yellow based foundation, let alone a powder and this powder has a strong yellow undertone which is PERFECT for my skin, especially for photographs because yellow cancels any redness. I used this powder in conjunction with my MUFE HD foundation and my skin looked FLAWLESS. I also used the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray and my makeup outlasted 40 degree heat/humity, and an ENTIRE day wear without touch-ups (I attribute the longevity of my makeup to the setting spray, which is another product rave review which I will be doing).The product is very finely milled and buttery smooth to the touch. With this said, your brush picks up A LOT of product upon contact so be careful not to get powder everywhere. There is only 8 grams of product so it is a little pricey for the amount you get in the compact. Also, the packaging loses some points with me because it is hard to open and doesn't come with an applicator (I typically throw out the applicators anyways, but I love my Chanel compact and how it comes with a brush AND a sponge!). Furthermore, the powder only comes in 4 shades so most people won't be a perfect match. If you can find your shade I highly recommend this product. I plan on backing up several of these powders, plus getting the lighter shade #20 for the winter. I have finally found my HG powder!
I like this powder. It mattifies without looking unnatural. I wish it had a littttttttttttle more mattifying properties to it, but I thought it made my skin look really nice. I went through it super quick and then dropped it so I'm all out. Not sure if I'll be buying again because it's so darn expensive, but if I had the money to blow I would!
I had shade #20 which is pretty match my NC25-30 skin. The coverage is good as MAC Studio Fix. However, both are too dry for my skin so it only looks good when I first apply the powder then dried my skin in a hour.
I think it is better for someone with oily skin and prefer medium coverage from a powder.
I am not crazy about this powder I felt that it looked very orange by the end of the day. It was pricey, I also purchased the magic brush from Cargo it is a nice brush it is soft, but I don't find myself reaching for it on a daily basis, it was pretty pricey as well. Will not purchase again.
i was at sephora and needed a new powder foundation with high coverage, oil control, and long lasting. the makeup artist put this on me and i loved it! i purchased it, but i got home and put it on... soo disappointed! why!? the lady gave me the WRONG shade, it was waaaay too dark for me. i wore it around the house for about 20 minutes, it does last long and had a little oil control. i use a mac concealer and with that it has high coverage, but by itself its not very matte.
planning on returning this and exchanging it for the RIGHT shade. but i think theres only four shades so hopefully everything goes good!
Not impressed. Decided to try this after so many positive reviews on YT and MUA. I got this for half the retail price from a seller on eBay and so glad I didn't pay full price for this. The color selection is horrible as there are only four to choose from. For $30, I'd expect a wider range of shades. For reference, I am an NC42 and the 30 is a tad too light, yet the 40 is way too dark. I ended up settling for the 30 in the end, which is ok when I'm lighter during winter. I have combo-oily skin and this didn't seem to help much with that. I've tried this as a setting powder and on it's own and noticed as the day went on it would begin to oxidize around the center of my face. The coverage wasn't to my liking either. I like full coverage and this was definitely light to medium. Wouldn't repurchase and don't plan on using again.
this is the best pressed powder ever! it is expensive but lasts forever. i wear it everyday and it lasts more than a year if applied with a light hand. i'm allergic to most things and i've found it too be very gentle on my skin. it also makes me look amazing!
