I bought this product online for about 1.49 or 1.99 the first time I purchased it I repurchased it again today while on 34th street in manhatten for $2.00 needless to say its worth it. you get good quality for a couple of bucks love it.. nc45 skin and I got honey amber 107
This is the first pressed powder I've tried and I mostly wanted it to help set my BB cream so it would last longer. I usually do not fuss over powders but I though hey why not, it was only a few dollars. Anyhoo I've tried Jordana products before with success and I really like this pressed powder! It was cheap and it does not leave me feeling like I'm wearing makeup which is huge for me. Mine did come with the puff but I just found out it did in the secret compartment with mirror, lol so I now have 3 backup puffs. I had no idea it came with these things! :D I bought the 101 Light Beige and it works terrific on my skin, and I'm pretty fair. I did not buy the lightest toned one because I felt that one was too light for my completion. Product works great and feels light on your face.
I'm a NC 25-30 and I bought the shade "creamy sand" which is a tiny bit too light, but wearable. I'm mostly wearing it over some other foundation, to set or retouch, and mostly over my T-zone and under the eyes, very softly. So it even works as a highlighter, almost. I don't think it emphasizes my pores or fine lines, which is more than I could expect from a pressed powder, especially one this cheap (U$1.99)! So, I'm pretty happy with it!
The packaging is very cheap (but then again, for that price...).
If you don't like scented makeup, you will hate this one. It smells pretty strong of... grannies! LOL I personally like it, it's nostalgic as one other member already said. It takes me back to my childhood.
Just bought this. This powder is so good it prompted me to write my first ever review. If you are anywhere between NC37-43 you have to try Light Honey! It was so cheap I also bought Warm Cocoa which I am intending to use a matte bronzer/contour.
So natural looking that I quickly took a flash picture hoping against hope against the dreaded ghost cast. Nope. Just lovely even looking skin. I'm surprised at the coverage. It handled the small veins and melasma from previous blemishes that concealers have trouble handling.
Also I like the fact that it's not completely matte. Other people who intend to use it as a mattifier might be disappointed. Not me. Matches me better than MSF Natural Medium Dark which leans to pink.
Don't know how this will hold up but who cares. I have trouble finding enough products that do the job, look natural and match my weird coloring. Packaging isn't so bad. Yeah its cheap. But it had a mirror. And the included puff I might isn't that bad. At least it's not the faux latex rubbery thingy.
Applied it with the puff, heavy coverage, almost completely matte. Used a MAC 182 lovely even light coverage.
I bought this for about one dollar after watching a youtube tutorial. In the video, it said that a lot of people complained about it breaking them out. I have very oily skin, but I very rarely get breakouts, so I ignored it. The powder itself was nice, but the packaging was kind of ugly, was what I thought the first time I tried it. I wore it for about two days before it started to break me out, which was sad, because it wasn't a bad powder. I've had better, but it was nice. If it doesn't break you out, I'd buy it.
This is a gem. It really surprised me. Matifies, doesn't look too cakey if applied the right way, and very inexpensive. You can't go wrong. The only problem is that it does add a little color/coverage, I'd prefer if it only made my skin matte. The packaging is ugly but functional, not much you can ask for the price. For reference, I'm between NC35~NC40 and I got the shade "creamy sand 105".
This product makes me nostalgic. It reminds me of being in highschool and blowing my allowance on makeup at Jewel, when I was obsessed with Cornsilk powders. The Jordana powder smells just like Cornsilk, and it controls oil just as well. I agree with the other reviewers that it's messy when you're using your brush, but for $2.99, that's alright. I'll also agree that it's a little chalky, but that goes away fast for me. I'm definitely looking forward to using this in the summer. I wish I could buy the full range of Jordana products at Walgreens so I could see the colors in person. Anyway, great powder, I'll be buying more.
I think for the price, this powder is fantastic! It left my face feeling silky and the colour matched me quite well. It was quite chalky though as people have said and the powder goes everywhere :/ That's my only complaint though. Would repurchase!
Holy crap, there's a mirror? I'm embarrassed to admit that I never noticed the mirror underneath until just now...well, that's a nice bonus. Anyway, I actually like this. It was about $2 on cherryculture so I wasn't expecting much. But this actually keeps my face matte for a few hours, doesn't oxidize, doesn't make my pores look huge. The only downside is that it's a bit chalky, so powder will go flying everywhere if you try to swirl your brush in it. I have it in Nude Beige. It matches my slightly pale yellowish skin well. I might buy again, but I prefer my usual Maybelline Dream Matte.
This is pretty nice powder once you find the right color. If you're trying this (or any cheaper powder) out for the first time online, i'd suggest getting two; one the color you think is right, and one lighter than that. Chances are the one you think might be too light is the perfect color. These are cheap enough to use a little trial and error to find the right color. I don't notice any darkening of the powder over cream foundations like with other cheap powders. The two colors I got (light beige, nude beige) weren't super yellow/orange like most cheap powders, which is really nice. The finish is matte and not heavy or chalky looking *only if* what's under it is even and blended well. This is not something you can quickly slap on over liquid or cream foundations without a brush or else it will look uneven and chalky. Overall I'm not super impressed but I'm not disappointed. As far as dirt-cheap pressed powders go I prefer Amuse, but this works well.
