Favorite powder by far. Definitely helps skin stay matte all day. Not cakey looking, but still has a little bit of coverage. I wear it on top of whatever liquid foundation I put on. The packaging is kind of annoying because the top and bottom always come loose from each other but I can deal. Great product for a great price.
This is my favorite pressed powder. I have tried a couple of others but this one by far is the best. It is not too thick and not too thin. It gives you a beautiful finish and for me, it lasts all day. I do not blot and I don't feel like I have the need to with this product. I will be repurchasing!
have been using this with the corresponding foundation and am wowed. I only need to blot twice during the day and it doesn't look took overly dry or cakey. this is really for those with oily skin though. I definitely wouldn't recommend to those with dry skin or even combination skin as it will look powdery and unnatural. this doesn't break me out either! support cheap as well. an oldy but goody.
I love CG's Clean Oil Control powder! I also love the Noxzema scented original Clean powder, and alternate between the two. The shade "Classic Ivory" is slightly lighter/less yellow than it's Sensitive counterpart, which works better for my currently super pale self. I use this to set whatever makeup I'm wearing, and for touching up my oily t-zone throughout the day. This has a lovely matte finish, never gets cakey, has a nice portable compact with a mirror and puff, and won't break the bank. I LOVE the new brighter blue shimmery packaging for this...too cute! This is translucent and is meant to be more of a setting/blotting powder, so those wanting coverage, look elsewhere. This doesn't get cakey when I use it for t-zone touch-ups throuthout the day (I have a very oily t-zone). Also doesn't cause breakouts. Would repurchase!
I've never been a fan of Covergirl products, but a friend raved so profusely about this product (and it was a steal a $2.79) that I decided to try it. I'm quite glad I did. When it comes to the dark circles under my eyes, this product alone does a good job concealing them - it may not make them disappear, but it lessens the severity. I also find that whatever makeup I'm using (eyeshadow, concealer, blush etc.,) I can always count on this powder to play nicely with other products.
I feel a smaller pad or even a brush might make for better application, and I also find the product dusty when I only apply it to a small area (like the corners of my eyes,) but all in all it's great value for the price.
I can use it with any makeup
Could be used as a stand alone product for concealing
Dusty/flaky when used in small portions
Pad is too big for ideal application
Update! Made me break out :( 3 lippys instead of 5
LOVE! This is AMAZING for oil control. Keeps me grease free for 6 hours! No touch ups! The packaging a a little flimsy but doesn't bother me. It's great for travel. I've dropped this many times and it hasn't broken. My skins been really oily atm so this isn't working as well as it did before but even of you don't have oily skin I think this would be great
This is a review on the normal skin one... I have normal to dry skin in winter and normal to combination in summer. I get a teensy bit oily around my nostrils, on my nose and on my chin. I usually can only put powder in those areas. This powder I put all over my face because I love the finish it gives me. It looks flawless. It also has a decent amount of coverage. I like the puff too! It's soft and great for touch ups. The smell doesn't bother me but its quite strong. It's a really affordable powder and better than any I've tried. I love the packaging too! It doesn't accentuate any of the tiny little hairs on my face which is what I was looking for. My new favourite powder. Btw I have this in buff beige
I bought this powder off of a recommendation from a friend of mine and I love it! It controls my oil, isn't cakey or powdery on the skin and has my shade ( I'm very pale) only downsides are it can catch on dry flakes of skin ( so not good if you have dry skin) and the packaging breaks. Now the breaking may not be CG fault, I keep it in my backpack and it may break just bc it's constantly being thrown on the floor. The powder itself has never broken tho ( surprisingly ) the clasp always breaks and then eventually the lid breaks so not a big deal. Overall great powder would definetly reccomend!
