I recently bought the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder. The loose version has been discontinued in the UK, so I couldn't try it out and compare it to the pressed version. But I'd like to think that I would have chosen the Pressed version anyway for convenience reasons.Anyway, I was really hesitant to buy a face powder, because I have combination skin with moderately oily areas and really dry areas on my cheek bones and under my eyes. I felt that only applying powder to my oily areas made my face look oddly patchy and when I do apply powder on my whole face I the powder ended up settling into fine lines and dry areas and making my face look flaky. So I haven't used powders in a long time and instead I have been just using blotting paper for my T-zone, which has worked fine for me.However, recently I started filming for Youtube and I needed a powder to not only help me stay matte (the harsh studio lights make even a dewy face look all greasy), but I also needed a powder to blur out my imperfections like the small acne scarring and enlarged pores. I have been doing a lot of research and looking into what powders I should use and I eventually settled for the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder. I have been using it quite a few times now and I love it! This transluscent powder sets your makeup, and gives you a lovely glow without looking overly matte or cakey. I also find that it works great on my dry areas, because it doesn't draw attention to it. Overall, I can highly recommend this product. A little will go a long way, so I think this will last me a good few years. Also a great plus: this product is suitable for Vegans!

This powder is not worth the rating. It will make you look powdery, old, and blah. It is nothing special. Does not reduce the appearance of pores, and I'd say it actually makes your overall appearance worse by drying you out and creating/highlighting wrinkles and dry skin on your face when using (and after using!!) I only purchase products with exceptional reviews, and I then give them a fair trial, and this one was an astounding waste of money.

My skin is oily in T zone, very sensitive and acne prone.I've been tested this powder for 1 month and it has nothing special for the price (35$ in my country)It has a soft and matte finish, but only for 2-3h and after this my nose looks like a disco ball.I tested it when outside was cold, under my make up, as a finish powder and my T zone going be shiny after 2-3 h.It doesn't cause breakouts on my very sensitive skin and this is a good thing.I will not repurchase it. I can find another powder which will last longer.

This review is for the pressed version!!So, this product is really blah. Nothing special at all. The result is nice besides the fact that it makes my pores on the nose much more visible and that it gives me wrinkels around my eyes, i'm 21 so i don't have any wrinkels yet.. I'm really pale and this one actually works, maybe it gives me a hint of color but not so it's noticable. It's expensive but i think it will last a long time, i'm not using it anymore so i can't know but a little comes a long way. The packaging is supersweet like every other product from Too Faced. Overall a so so product, not worth buying. ProsIf you have perfect skin you can get a porcelain look with thisAlmost no color at all (but can be white on darker skintones)Good for sensitive skinMakes your skin very softConsMakes pores much more visibleGives you wrinklesThe powderpuff in the packaging broke after two times of usingYou look a bit powdery when using

I own both pressed and loose powder versions of this. I initially thought it would be perfect, as in HG, for setting under eye concealer. It isn't for me! It looks okay at first for a bit, but then it turns ghostly pale white and gritty feeling under my eyes! However, this is perfect for setting makeup or just using in the t-zone area. It really does help control oil and shine. I tried this as a primer, but I prefer the other TF Primed & Poreless for actual primer. This is very, very finely milled. So if you get too much on your powder brush, it just clouds up the air! I have found that using a regular wedge sponge or powderpuff tapped lightly onto the product and then pressed onto the area of skin is best. Then take your powder brush and dust off the excess product. IMO, the formula is the same in both versions, it's just if you prefer loose vs compact, and taking traveling into consideration. Overall, this is a great setting powder, great for controlling oil and shine, and great for those who have dry skin and don't like to cake on setting powder. I would recommend and repurchase.

This is a great powder, it's very thin and makes me skin looks really poreless! . The only thing I don't really like it's the fact that is a loose powder which sometimes makes a messy aplication ( at least for me) . I'ts hard to control the amount of product I put in my face, there are times when I apply way too much which leaves my face veryy white ! I wouldn't say it's traslucent, sometimes I find my face very pale when I use this

This review is for the pressed powder that comes in a compact.I have finally found the perfect sheer powder! It makes my skin look so smooth and poreless and it truly lives up to its name. I wear this on a daily basis on bare skin with some concealer here and there and it's perfect for that purpose. It keeps my skin matte and it is long-wearing. It does not leave a whitish tint or make my dark skin look ghostly at all. I love it. I also use it as a setting powder over foundation and it looks like perfection. It has not caused any sort of irritation, itchiness, or acne on my sensitive skin. It does not contain Bismuth Oxychloride for anyone who's wondering.I have tried several sheer powders such as Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, Rimmel Stay Matte, Neutrogena shine control powder, and Black Opal Invisible oil blocking powder and Too Faced blows them all away.

This product does what it says, well. I have normal to combination skin. I like using luminous foundation but I have larger pores in my T-Zone. I hate silicone primers and balms that fill in pores. I don't eat guacamole for the same reason, the texture bothers me. This product does the job of cone primers without the unpleasant texture. I just use it in my T-Zone letting the rest of my face glow. I do have a little intel though. I have been to 3 Ulta locations in the last week and not a one had this product in stock. I asked the clerk if the product was just popular and she said that they just had not received inventory. It may be discontinued soon so stock up if you like it. That does seem to be my luck. A lot of products that work well for me do get discontinued.

HOLY freaking GRAIL, people. This is the best powder I have ever used on my oily, overly sensitive, acne-prone skin. It doesn't break me out and it controls shine ALL DAY (12hrs). At about the halfway mark (6-8hrs) I begin to notice a bit of shine peeking through, but it doesn't look like an oily mess; rather, it looks like a natural, dewy complexion. Also, I live in Florida ... it's seriously 88Â°F with 100% humidity in January right now!
I don't really notice that it minimizes my pores too drastically or even creates an airbrushed appearance. My skin just has a healthy, matte complexion when I use this.
I apply a very light dusting with a large, fluffy powder brush or stippling brush using a dabbing/patting motion rather than buffing/rubbing.
CONS: Packaging! Horrible, horrible, horrible.
