It took me a couple of times to proof myself that this pressed powder is good. 1st of used together with l.a colors liquid makeup foundation. My nose and upper lips got so cakey! I tried to mix with my ZA SPF 50++ BB Cream and it was so bad. Used it alone, didn't give me the coverage i wanted. Finally i decide to use my brush instead of using the sponge. And it actually helps. I am wearing my ZA BB Cream underneath. I can say it does last longer den expected. With a cheap, i don't expect anything much. If I'm under budget i might buy this. Im always using the lighter to natural shade (Singapore) but i got honey beige i think.. which is darker but match my skin nicely.
I know it not good, but i prefer my powder to have a nice smell, which it doesn't have. This L.A girls/colors products doesn't have any SPF which is really really sad.

First of let me tell you I tried using this without a liquid foundation or anything, it broke me out. However, after applying it on top of my Maybelline FitMe Poreless Liquid Foundation I was so freakin happy with the outcome. It looks light and feels light. I promise, you're gonna love it (just don't wear it alone loool). Now let me tell you this, I live in the Caribbean its currently summer and I have oily skin. This badboy is a lifesaver in my situation. The other night I was going out with my friend she told me to get ready by 10 so i did so, my makeup and everything(Using this product), she called me telling me not to get dress yet, by that time I was already done, she was like give me a hour, I was like fuck, there goes my makeup(I love stepping out and my makeup is looking fresh) it went on to 12 to my surprise my face still looked fresh, eventually homegirl called back saying she ain't going out again(family situation) I was disappointed but my face still looked beat!!! Get this product you won't regret it

This is by far, the best pressed powder for me. Not only is it cheap, but it is really light on the skin. There is no fragrance to it, so thats a plus point. I have oily skin, but this powder helps my skin to minimize the oily-ness. If you find this somewhere, go and give it a try! You will be amazed!

A few months back I posted on the board that I couldn't find a powder that didn't make me look chalky, and very dry..A few ladies told me I probably didn't have use for it, and I might want to stick with my reg foundation routine.. Well I wasn't convinced! I have recently discovered I have combination skin (not dry as my profile states) and began looking for ways to combat my oily tzone. Well I came across this at my local dollar store for 2.50, and was thrilled that the display case had open ones to try so I was able to match my skin perfectly, and really liked the smooth texture. I really love this powder. It goes on effortlessly and sets foundation nicely. I do have to touch up after a couple of hours but that's ok. I travel with an arsenal of makeup in my huge purse anyway because im never home... Anyway I would also like to add that its been years since I picked up anything from la colors because I had thought I out grown it and that they made very low quality products, but this powder inspired me to pick up other la color products, and I love them all!!! They really stepped up their game but the price range has stayed very pocket friendly. Im now a powder girl :)

This is my favorite powder. It works way better than the more expensive brands and doesn't look Cakey. It's the only powder I trust. Luckily I can find it at a little Asian store for 3.99

I bought a L.A. Colors Mineral Pressed Powder at a makeup counter for $4. I wear the shade MP310 Toasted Almond; I was impressed with the variety of darker shade this is available in because finding skin tone powder isnít easy. I like this so much that itís now my every day one. I use it to control my oily skin throughout the day & I use it to set my liquid foundation, too. The finish is natural & I do get a little bit of coverage when Iím wearing it alone. Iím not a woman who turns my nose up to drugstore cosmetics, but I was really surprised by the quality for it being a cheap brand. I'd buy this again!

I actually got mine in a couple shades darker than my skin so I use it as a contour/blush. For the price it's amazing. The powder is so soft and finely milled. Because it's so finely milled I find that there's a lot of fall out so your compact ends up getting quite dirty but I can live with that. It has a useless mirror on the bottom which is good for touch ups and I find that the packaging isn't as bad as some people make it out to be. I would definitely purchase this product again.
