I have a love hate relationship with this product i love how much coverage it provides i wear it one its own and it gives the most flawless but not overly matte finish. There are little tiny buts of shimmer but when applied to the face it doesn't show up but it leaves a semi matte finish and i like that, even though i have oily skin i don't like the overly matte finish look. I have oily skin and this product doesn't get rid off it but it does leave me matte for an extra 2 to 3 hours. the packaging is ok the little window to see the product shattered a bit when i dropped it on floor. the thing i hate about it is i have the color 235 pure beige and in the pan its a shade littler than my skin tone and when i apply it it matches pretty well BUT during the day i find the shade gets a bit darker so it looks like i put to much bronzer on but i just put some down my neck and bust area so easy fix but still a down side. i would buy this product again but in 2 shades littler than my actual skin tone color.
I bought this because One of friends bought it a loved it unfortunately I didn't. I have a very fair skin tone with red cheeks and this did nothing but turn orange and make me look like a tanned carrot. I tried it for my forehead and nose which is not red and It still turned a dark orange and I picked the 125 one of the lightest shades they have. Over all I payed 15$ for nothing, big dissapointment
**Edit 11/25 Finally used this up, wont repurchase. Dont like the glitter, coverage and oil control is a joke compared to SF powder. Save your money and invest in that.
Pressed powder is always good to have around. Im just kind of meh about this powder. The price and color are great, coverage is so so when used alone. Normally, I wear it over my Tarte TM, so the coverage appears to be decent in that aspect. For some reason, using it over the Fit Me foundation makes my whole face look just wrong. You would think they would look good together.
This powder isn't bad, but doesn't provide very enough coverage for my acne scarred skin. I used it in combination with the fit me foundation and I found the products made me look cakey (because I needed a lot to get any sort of coverage) and still you could see my acne and acne scars up close.
I think it would work well for someone with normal/dry skin like me, but who doesn't need as much coverage as I did. It was a great price and has a good idea behind it with the limited ingredients deal.
This is an okay powder. I generally do not like powder products because they feel like they clog up my pores, but every woman has to have some kind of powder for use. I bought this one because I had a $1 off coupon for it. This was a good powder in terms of skin matching- I like that it has yellow undertones. Also, if you use a powder brush and not the puff, you can get a nice, super-thin layer on and not worry about it looking like you have powder on. The puff can make you look like a cakeyface. In terms of staying power, it is good, with touch-ups of course. It made my foundation last all the way through a water balloon fight, and I needed it to stay on for THAT. It costs around $6 and is very cheap. I'd recommend it because it's a nice, basic powder. Nothing out-of-the-ordinary.
so i bought this product along with the liquid foundation fit me as well! and im not fond of both products! so with this product, i have to keep on re-touching up on my make-up because it doesnt seem to last me the whole day which is quite frustrating! the coverage isnt great either, you end up looking cakey rather than flawless. when applying the liquid foundation fit me and then applying press powder, the colour of the foundation on my skin changes to a darker tone which looks so wrong compared to the colour on my neck, i wouldnt purchase this product again!
I wore this to school every day and my concealer stayed put. Even in the summer months now, it keeps my concealer from melting off or creasing. This powder keeps your face matte, even if you have greasy sunscreen and concealer underneath! The powder will not break in the packaging, no matter what. The color selection is great as well. I've gone through so many other drugstore powders that made my face look cakey, crumbled if I dropped it even one time, and were too dark. I'm happy I've finally found a powder that's affordable and keeps my skin matte!
I was looking for a smallish compact for touch-ups to keep in my purse. Lately, every company seems to be making ginormous plastic tubs that are fine at home, but not very portable. This fit the bill. The filling is fine, too - I was able to get a good match for my skin tone right away, even under the fluorescent lights of Target (135 Creamy Natural). Not too dead matte, not full of glittery mica particles either. Altogether, very reasonable product for under $6.
I use this in 355 with my Revlon Colorstay. It is the perfect combo! I have extremely oily skin so it does nothing for shine control and with oily skin your makeup with darken throughout the day. Anyway it is the only powder I have found thus far that goes well with my foundation choice/color.
I bought this to set my Fit Me liquid foundation. It was chalky and didn't do much to set my foundation or improve the staying powder. After I started using this (combined with the Fit Me foundation) every day, my skin became dryer than it has ever been before. I think it was the talc (listed as the first ingredient) that just dried out my skin.
