I have been using this product for awhile now. But i have been noticing it makes my face soooo oily during the day and doesnt feel light on my face. I bought the wrong shade 4times hahaha. I have now switched to the mayballine dream matte powder It is wayyy better than the fit me x100. The coverage is okay. When i put this on, i am costantly having to blot my face during the day, which sucks :( I do not reccomend this to people who have acne- prone skin or oily skin! However, i think this product would be okay for people who dont have oily skin. Please check out the mayballine dream matte powder, it is wayyyy better!!!! :D xx
If i had dry skin i think i would be very happy with this powder. It gave a very nice glow to my skin at first unlike the normal 100% matte finish i usually go with. Unfortunatly, if you have oily skin like me, that nice healthy glow turns into a shiny/greesey mess that made me feel the need to blot every 10 minutes. This didnt break me out in any way so thats a big plus ... Its a nice powder but i dont think this is aimed for anybody with oily skin.
Due to the hyper-sensitivity of my skin I use only Fruit of the Earth Vitamin E cream and powder on my face...no foundation! Ive used Physicians Formula Mineralwear Powder for about a year but have had trouble recently with the inconsistancy in the colors so I tried this today.
For what I use it as, a foundation, I really like it. I don't want something that looks overly matte (I'm 44, my skin looks dry enough as it is). I apply my cream, let it soak in a minute, then apply this powder with my Physicians Formula Airbrushing Kabuki in a patting motion. The coverage is medium and the finish is really nice-it's controlled the shine on my nose but the rest of my face doesn't look overly dry.
I've found in my search for powder foundations that application is KEY. If you're looking for a matte finish it's important to "pat" the powder on with either a velour puff )rolling motion) or a flat top powder brush. If you're looking for a bit of sheen then brush or buff it on. However, when applied this way it will make youthful skin glow but accentuate lines and pores of older or problem skin so be careful.
After having this on several hours it hasn't changed colors and doesn't feel like its zapping the moisture out of my skin like some powders can. Also, I like the afforability, availability, and wide selection of shades.
Good stuff :)
So I just picked up this product from my Walmart, I was looking something to replace my Victoria's Secret Hello bombshell powders, because obviously i cant carry a huge kit around everywhere in school, with heavy textbooks and laptop. I think its a little expensive..i got it for about $8, but whatever thats okay. I picked up this in 310 Sun Beige, which is pretty okay for my skin (NC40-42). The packaging is so effin cute, I love it. The powder is not "pressed" in well, because a single swipe of a brush makes it crumble. I only use this to set my makeup, I use my Mac Studio Sculpt, and this powder lets me set my makeup and leaves my makeup very dewey and gorgeous. Lasting power is pretty good, considering i wear my studio sculpt for about 6 hours without any touch Ups.. Would I recommend this product to friends? Yes..Because its pretty, I like the dewey look, but if youre mattifying yourself, I suggest using the puff it comes with..and lightly roll the puff with your fingers (not scrape or glide).
Notes to consider:
- I have Extremely dry skin
- Studio Sculpt Foundation
- Lemon-aid Correcter (as concealer)
- Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer (it's known to be a bit oily..so its perfect for me"
- Ponds (Blue) as moisturizer
Email me if you need any help or more details :)
Edit: I actually dont mind how it gets a little powdery
its still pretty good.
the color is a bit dark for me, but my foundation is a tad lighter, (Golden Beige- Photoready), because my neck is wayy lighter than my face, so i think this works perfectly.
The powder is pretty much sheer covergae which I really love because it doesn't make your face look cakey. (I have in in 125) Even though it's sheer, it totally makes my face more matt and me skin tone looks a little more evened out. My foundation do stay on longer with this powder applied and the powder definitely didn't break me out so I'm very happy about that. I love the pretty packaging, it's square shape looks a lot nicer then the circles ones and i really like how it comes with a mirror and puff which I never use but it just looks better sitting in there.
I was really excited about this powder. I bought it in 115, but I think 120 would have been a bit better, but 115 works. The packaging is so cute, it has the powder on the top, and then you flip it open and there is an applicator and a mirror. I bought this for $7. I loved this at first, but then about a week later, the sun was shining on my skin, and I wondered why the heck there was shimmer all over my face. Turns out this powder is shimmer. -_-
This was a real eye catcher for me. The price is amazing marking up only $6, and the packaging was real chic. The powder itself though is great too!
on my face, this does give me coverage and as long as I don't pack it on, it won't look cakey. But don't keep your hopes high. Don't rely on this product to set because it's not the best. It looks good when you're about to leave, and when you come back it will look as if the powder has disappeared! This powder is also weak on controlling shine. This powder will also not do good by itself as foundation. All in all, it was great to try, but I don't think this is the best.
I bought the Fit Me Foundation a month or so ago. I can honestly say that I use it every single day and when I run out I will deffintely be buying it again. I find that it gives my face a nice tone and a lot of people ask me what i'm using. Although it was about $8, there are more expensive ones out there and I was happy with my product.
This product is awful on me! It does not control oil or really 'set' my foundation very well. Overall I don't think its that good and will not be repurchasing in the future.
I LOVE this powder!!!! It's so light and soft on my skin! I use ColourStay foundation which is already pretty heavy so I dont like to use a heavy powder along with it otherwise I just look cakey! This sets my foundation really nicely and lightly. Makes my skin sooo smooth and matte without making me look cakey!! It has no coverage what so ever I reckon, but for the foundation I use I dont need extra coverage! I also have oily skin and it really dried up my oily spots when I do a little touch up! The packaging is simple and looks really nice! No complaints from me! Love it!!
