This product is my favorite. I bought a medium-deep one which is enough to gives a flawless, light, healthy and natural look by just a tiny apply. And the packaging is ideal and very convenient for travel (although I do not really like the puff it provides).
I am nc20. I can wear the buff foundation fine but if I add this too it it turns orange on me. I bought light. I will have to give this to someone who is more cool complected. I really like how slim the compact is though.
Nothing special about this powder-- It makes your face look too powdery, no matter how little you put on. I have bought cheap powder that looked way better -- don't waste your money on this.
I do like this product alot. I bought it in light to pair with my buff foundation of the same brand. I also think the packaging is fine ,I don't want anything big and bulky and the simple black is kind of chic looking.For me it controlled my oily skin and also lasted all day.I sometimes skip foundation and just use this either with my Alima mmu brush or the puff it comes with for a fast shine down look.It can feel a bit drying ,but that feeling fades quickly.It looks very fresh and well put together over foundation as well. I read some reviewers said it clung to their dry patches as any makeup would do,a few days of exfoliating and a good moisturizer will help with that .
HORRIBLE PRODUCT!!I hate this overpriced crap with a passion!!It sticks and makes my skin break out right away!!It has a very heavy feel to it and it does not stay on very good at all!!
I liked what I read about the reviews, main thing I saw the low rating on was the packaging. This I did find to be true it is very light and flimsy. It is similar to the MAC Mineralize packaging with the push tab to open. But on to the quality of the powder. First of all I don't wear liquid foundation as a habbit so I was using this for touchups. From a distance looked ok. When I got closer you can see the little tiny patches of powder and also, dry patches got ALLLLLL of the attention of the other features on my face. The search still continues.....
EDIT**went to 4 lippies it began to blend well after waiting, and also it would probably be perfect over foundation. Will edit if it wears off quickly.
This is ok . As you all may know I have such oily skin that nothing seems to control oil, I have to remind myself to touch up and that is just too annoying. It can get thick from touch ups.
I use with my Colorstay foundation in Buff a covergirl powder, I would buy this again I guess.
Update: I have found something better, Simply powder from Covergirl, so no, I would not buy this again.
Update 2013: This oxidizes when you get oil break thru, also I noticed if you put on too much it looks greyish so I am still looking, also I don't use simply powder from Covergirl anymore.
This is quite chalky. Its thick and drying. Ick.
This powder made me look chalky, and it was very drying on my skin. I was about to get the medium tone but then decided not to after remembering how this powder made me look like the living dead! I don't recommend it. I'll stick to their colorstay foundation...love THAT stuff!
I love this powder! I can't seem to get behind liquid foundation, so I stick to powder. Awhile ago, for some reason my old stand bys (Stila 60 Watt, Dream Matte) suddenly made me look chalky and a bit pale, so on the hunt for a new one I went and discovered this gem. I use medium/deep and love it! Great coverage for a powder, I have combo skin and it never settles in and begins feeling like a mask. My face looks matte all day long with maybe one touch up. Great find. I took a lippie off just because it seems to get everywhere when I put it on...I don't know the word for that...It's too powdery maybe?
