I absolutely ADORE this. I've worn this product every day for several years and I could not be more impressed. My mom had this product and I was out of town with my family and didn't have my powder with me so I borrowed hers and absolutely fell in love with it. I've been repurchasing ever since. I wouldn't even consider switching powders. Also, since it's a powder foundation, I don't have to spend crazy amounts of money on foundation and just wear this instead. I wear ivory and it's a perfect match for my skin tone, doesn't make me look orange like other powders I've used. It stays on for a long time and doesn't cake up. It covers any kind of blemishes too. It usually lasts me for about 2-3 months. It's 6.24 at my local walmart which is a little more than I would like to pay, but it's worth it because it's cheaper than some other powders and works better. It's well worth the money!
Ok, this is the EXACT same powder as Covergirl's Simply Powder foundation...compare the ingredients, they are identical (same order and everything). CG is famous for marketing the same formulas under different names, and that really irks me! However, I do really like this powder! This powder foundation keeps shine at bay better than any other powder foundation I have tried. I like it a lot better than Mac's SF powder! It's light coverage, and matte finish is ideal, and you can even layer it over a TM or BB cream without it looking heavy or cakey. The only con is that there isn't a shade for the ultra fair, and that the half-moon pan size can be awkward. The packaging is too cute, and very portable, so I take this one with me for on the go, and use the Simply Powder at home (you get more for your money with that one). Would repurchase!
I really like this foundation. It's an easy on-the-go sort of product. Sometimes I find it really powdery which makes my skin look paler if it does get powdery. I find it can really cake on sometimes as well. It does seem to run out quickly though. But as I said it's a great on-the-go foundation, it gives great coverage, and has a really good consistency. Even though I have a few more cons than pros for this product, I would definitely repurchase it.
I keep coming back to this product. It's a little more pink toned than I would like (in the lightest or second to lightest shades) but it does a great job at controlling oil. I have tried countless drugstore oil-control powders and haven't found a better one. The packaging is slim and simple. I generally use a primer, a few dabs of concealer, and then I apply this powder with a big powder brush. I keep a spare in my purse for touch ups and use a little brush that came with some other product, but the sponge is fine too. I sure hope they don't discontinue this, bc it's becoming harder to find. CVS usually stocks it.
This is my first ever review so it means this product is good! Ive tried a lot of foundations and this one I always go back to! It's a light to medium coverage and not very build-able. I have acne prone oily skin and this product just works for me..I only took off one point cause I do get kind of oily thru out the day but other than that I love it. I wouldn't get it if you have a light complexion though..they don't have many shades to choose from and it runs darker. When you first put it on it looks a bit powdery but within minutes when your natural oils mix with it and it looks flawless. I've had many people tell me I have a beautiful complexion when in reality I have acne marks and uneven skin tones. I'd highly suggest trying this out, I've been using it for years :) and it's really cheap and convenient!
I got the lightest shade (605 Ivory) because the sales lady it matches my skin tone. She tried it on my hand (which, I know, is wrong and it should be on the jawline). When I used it on my face, it made my face look a little darker. The coverage is so light that it didn't even cover the red marks (caused by pimples) on my face. And, as for the oil control thing, I'll just say "Forget about it." I was just so disappointed with this product.
I like this product a lot. I love powders that have a light-to-medium coverage and this does the job! Even though it doesnt' control oil for more than 2 hours, I like that the color at least stays on my face! I have some redness around the sides of my nose and dark circles and this covers them up perfectly even after my face gets oily. This powder foundation puts the covergirl oil control pressed powder to shame!
I normally wear bare minerals but was looking for something to less expensive to swipe on when I was just running around town and didn't want to waste my bare minerals! This product is great for that! I wear the cerave moisturizer which leaves me shiny and I'm already oily as it is and this fixed it right up! It extremely light coverage!! It really just evens the skin tone and keeps the oiliness at bay. I have lots of redness on my cheeks and on my nose and this is masks it with a 2nd layer. It feels great on my skin and goes on very smooth. It is oil free and hypoallergenic. In bare minerals I use fairly light and sometimes even fair and I purchased the compact in classic ivory and it's a perfect match!
This is great. Oil control is good, Staying power is pretty good, and doesn't oxidize throughout the day! I probably will repurchase if I don't find anything better because its great! I used to use liquid foundation but when I started using this my friends and family said my skin looked the same! Powder foundation that covers like a liquid? Amazing!
For a while this has been my go to foundation...mainly because I believed it was perfect for my oily skin. What a disaster! My bathrooms light must be weird. I have the lightest shade, 605, and it's still to dark. I'm quite pale, naturally so. When wearing this with a shirt that shows my neck, the contrast is startling. My face looks orange, and all this time I thought it was my liquid foundation! I think this foundation may oxidize a tiny bit.
Horrible. I'm going back to liquid for the winter.
