Just purchased this powder for $3 in light/medium. I've only used it once and I am thrilled with the results!
I usually wear foundation, blush, bronzer but rarely use powder. I've really been missing out. This powder made my face perfectly matte and my skin felt super smooth. The coverage is fantastic...it evens out my skintone and makes my face look flawless. Doesn't look cakey either.
The packaging is really cheap, of course. But, I do like how sleek this compact is.
I have only tried one other powder, the Covergirl compact, so I think I'm still going to shop around...but, I will repurchase this to keep in my stash.
This is very drying. I could feel it sucking the life out of my skin the instant I applied it. This is not for me.
Great product! Matte finish and beautiful matching color with the foundation! Will definitely buy again as it covered all of my imperfections and red spots!
I love this powder, it just sets foundation so well! I was just gonna buy the coverall foundation, but this was on sale, so I got it, and WOW, it gives such a great coverage. Paired with the coverall foundation its great. But you can also use this on top of any other foundation and it gives you more of a matte finish even if its not a matte foundation, such a great drugstore powder.
I am very pale and to find a true match is a big deal for me so when I saw this in fair I thought for $2.72 I'm definately gonna try it....glad I did!!! Wet n wild has really stepped up their game with this powder. I love it! I bought it to set my Revlon CS makeup and it did a beautiful job. It also covers inperfections very good(for a powder). Overall I am very happy and will repurchase. The packaging isnt all that great....but for less than 3 bucks thats ok!
i have this in 2 shades: fair and fair/light. fair looks to be pretty neutral (maybe slanting towards pinkish) in the pan while fair/light is distinctly yellow-toned. both work well for my NC20-25 skin tone. while this might not be the best powder foundation / pressed powder on the market, it is unquestionably the best @ its price (i scored each for $1.95 while it was 40% off at rite-aid. regular price $2.99 which still can't be beat). the powder is finely milled and does kick up some when i touch my brush to it. i personally don't mind since i prefer that over solidly compact powders that doesn't seem to pick up any product no matter how hard my brush is swirled in it. i found the best way to apply this is to dab my ecotools bronzer brush into the powder and press it gently onto my face. it evens my skintone nicely (i am lucky enough to not need much coverage). it doesn't cake up or irritate my skin and it wears well as well as helps my other face products (ie, blush) last throughout the day. i haven't experienced any noticeable oxidization or shininess throughout the day. by the end of the day there is a slight dewiness but nothing that looks oily or greasy. this is completely matte which i love since i absolutely detest sparkle/shimmer/glimmer/sheen in products i use all over my face as i have absolutely no aspiration to be a twilight cullen. i would repurchase this over and over no question!
Note: Skin type: Oily-combo, very sensitive, acne-prone. Olive/yellow undertones, light medium complexion most days.
I purchased this product in light/medium and was perfect match HOWEVER broke me out, probably due to the vitamin c derivative (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) because Vit. C, while great for normal skin can irritate sensitive skin. I thought I would love this product due to the ingredients and lack of preservatives but no it broke me out.
I went to Walgreens today looking for Ultraswim shampoo (nobody carries it!) and feeling defeated, I browsed cosmetics of course. WNW was on sale! Ooh-la-la! Total splurge purchase: on sale for $1.99. I bought the second lightest shade (fair/light) because the lightest shade seemed too pink/cool for me. I'm about an NC15 or so. It seems to be a pretty good match, with enough yellow for my skin's undertones.
I don't get too whipped up over packaging if I like the product inside. The package, yes, it's cheap. At this price point of course a person can't expect luxury. It would be nice to have a mirror in the compact. Maybe one is hidden: remember those 3 shade eyeshadows? with the teeny hidden mirror? And of course the sponge is throw away. Mainly it's too small and thin to be useful, though in all honesty the firmness/porosity/texture is actually first rate.
The product itself is very lovely: finely milled, smooth, not too heavy. It is a bit dusty so you need a light touch with your brush. I probably would choose a powder that is more firmly pressed for an on-the-go makeup kit. On my skin it is not chalky or heavy, but I use it lightly over an already matte foundation. It keeps the oil at bay as long as any other powder, which is a few hours. I've paid more for powder that matched less and wore more fugitively than this one. It's a lovely little bargain if you can get the correct shade. That's always the problem with drugstore products with no testers. An added super bonus: there is no detectable fragrance which I just love.
At most I would give this a 4, for the moment, I got it to go with the cream foundation from the same line and it does set it nicely, it gives an over all nice matt finish, doesnt seem to irritate my otherwise overly sensitive skin and I didn't manage to make it look cakey on me either. Why I cant give it a full rating is because the particular one I got smells horrible, it has a rather strong burnt plastic smell and at the moment I dont know if its just this particular powder, possibly a bad batch, or if its the formula itself but since its an otherwise great product I'm willing to give it another chance and see about exchanging or even just buying another one just to see. If it was just that particular one I bought then I would most definitely be repurchasing but if I have the same issue then Ill stick with my Rimmel Stay Matte
I purchased the shade in fair which compliments my complexion well, for reference I'm a MAC NC15 or Matchmaster shade 1. The packaging is quite bulky without an enclosed mirror and the included latex-like sponge is useless, but the powder itself is good. Works well to set my foundation without looking heavy or cakey and provides a slightly satin finish instead of a full on matte. This powder did a decent job of minimizing my oily t-zone during the day too. The down side for me, besides the packaging and sponge, is the powder's texture. It is quite soft and becomes extremely messy when using a brush to apply the product. This isn't a powder I would carry in my purse for touch-ups, but for an everyday set my initial make-up application it does do a great job.
