Don't know why I have not tried this brand before now but it is actually really good. I got this one in light/med. and it is great for Winter but I think I will order a shade darker for the rest of this Summer/Fall months. It is very finely milled & goes on so smooth. I love the feel on my face. It is so light weight. I do not smell much of a scent either. I do like face powder that has a nice smell but since this is so good & inexpensive, I can fore go the nice smell. The coverage is really pretty good too. It is not overly thick so if I have a place that needs a bit extra touch up, it is easy to do. I will buy this one again. continued >>
excellent product. Comparable to the expensive luxury brands. Will buy again.
I recently ordered this powder just to try it out. I actually loved this powder to touch up thru out the day and to set my liquid foundation. This powder actually does help in controling the oil. Specially right now that I tend to get oily in the summer I am using this and it just mattifies my makeup beautifully.. I am NC35-37 in Mac I purchased this in Neutral but it is a little light for me. I will buy the next shade and update this review. I would reccomend this to anyone to use for touch ups or setting only.. Alone it does not give any coverage.
Love this product!! Instantly matifies my face and gives its a smooth finish. I have really oily skin and this keep my skin from getting more oily. I got this in the neutral shade and the color matches very well. The powder is pretty much translucent.
an amazing product from Avon! Actually, Avon has been one of my favorite brands lately.
This powder is finely milled, never cakey and looks very natural on the skin.
I'm NC20 and I got Light, it's a perfect match! I'm going to have to get a back-up b/c I think this is being discontinued.....
I got this in Fair (the only other shade available over here is Light Medium). I wanted to use something to even out my skintone a bit, but I didn't want to use foundation of fear that it would make my skin appear oily. So I chose this, mainly because it wasn't expensive and looked nice enough.
At first, I was very satisfied. It gives quite good coverage for a pressed powder, and evens out skin tone nicely. I applied it with a brush, because I hate puffs.
Then, I bought a liquid mineral foundation (Maybelline's new Affinitone), and on top of that, it looks a bit too orange. Maybe it's just the combination of the two, or the Maybelline is too orange in itself already, I can't really decide.
All in all, it's a great translucent powder, if you're new to pressed powder, I think this is a great first choice. I think I'll still use it in the summer until it's finished, but I'm moving on to something else after that.
I used to think that cheap powders, including Avon powders, deliver only half of what they promised for. But not with this powder, I can really compare it with MAC Sheer Pressed Powder at a dirt cheap price. Plus, this powder has not caused me breakouts or rashes unlike Clinique's and Revlon's. The texture is fine-milled so that when it applies to my skin, i don't feel any heavy consistency. The real test happened when I went to client factory visit, with dust and smoke all over. Though I sweat a lot during that time, the powder just remained intact and did not look cakey. The packaging is also elegant that I am not ashamed to touch-up in public because its expensive-looking. Though, I touch-up several times in a day. But hey I love flashing it around and re-applying so even a plus for me. Glad I tried this Avon powder. Im addicted already.
So I really like this product. It is a very nice powder, I have very oily skin and this did help but I still did have to blot after a couple of hours but I still like it I got toffee which is almost the exact same color as my mac nw45 powder just not orange, buildable coverage, I've found my new fav powder. Update: This powder has sooo many ingredients and one of them is bismuth which makes my face itch, so I probably will finish it then not repurchase.
Great powder. I keep this on hand at all times and just dust a bit on my t zone if it looks shiny, good buildable coverage, doesn't look cakey, just an all round great product
I am soooo impressed with this product! I don't have the moola to get another MAC pressed powder, so I've been on the hunt for a long time for something that works just as well, for less money! I believe I have found it! This powder has a wonderful texture. It goes on smooth when applied with a powder brush (I'm not a fan of using the puffs that come with powders). The coverage is buildable. It doesn't look cakey on my skin. I'm also happy that Avon came out with darker colors, so that's definitely a plus! I purchased mine in Mocha. Mine only cost me about $6.99 so you know I am a happy camper with that! I have oily skin, and this hasn't turned a crazy color throughout the day or allowed the oil to break through. Overall, I am 100% impressed with this product. It's been a long time that I have used Avon face products. Definite repurchase!
