Let me start off by saying the color selection for this powder is amazing! I found my perfect shade. It looks so natural on me. The powder has an even, natural looking coverage, and doesn't change color on me during the day.
The only down side to this powder is that it doesn't control oil very well. My nose gets shiny after an hour of wearing this, and I'm not liking the smell that comes from the product either.
Other than those things, this is a decent powder.
This powder goes on smoothly and gives very light coverage, however it does not last long on my combination skin. It tends to become greasy and thick the longer it stays on. It does accentuate dry areas a LOT so if you have dry skin, this is not for you. Actually, I feel like normal skin types are the only skin types this will work well for. This powder works better for me during the winter when it's not hot out.
Hmmm...I'm not too fond of this. I have normal-combo skin and makes my skin look pretty dry and makes my face look flaky. Couldn't find a decent colour match for my NC37-40 yellow undertoned skin...they were all pretty light. My mum uses this powder though and seems to like it. Me however, I don't. Much prefer my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder!
i'm already on my second so i would most def repurchase!! i love this stuff! way better tham mac's pressed powder imo. especially 4 the price. i just hate the packaging. it's such a hassle to switch back and forth to look in the mirror.. and it runs out a little quick but nonetheless hg so far!!! :)
When I first bought this i thought this was wayy too dark but thank goodness it was not haha. It looks great on and I used a wet sponge to apply it on my face. I would definitely repurchase this.
I love this stuff. it's great for oily skin and makes it no so oily through out the day. it has a nice soft creamy texture and applies great with a sponge or powder brush.
This works well for overall, light coverage. Lately I've been keeping this in my purse for touch-ups. This has a wonderful, almost creamy texture, and it doesn't get cakey on my face. There are so many shades, and they come in cool or warm tones.
Package design leaves a little to be desired. The product is on one side, and the applicator / mirror is on the other, so if you want to use the mirror you have to do this flip-apply product to sponge - - flop-open compact to get to mirror move that's a bit awkward.
I remember liking this powder a lot. It delivered a nice coverage without being too heavy or cakey on my skin. The shade W5 is btw perfect for my skin tone (liquid foundation too, but not the concealer!!!). I also like the polished look I get from this powder, very fresh and pretty. I'll get it again very soon cause it's almost as good as my HG Helena Rubinstein's Color Clone but for a much lower price! From the drugstores: it's the best pressed powder I know! :)
I have been trashing this for awhile because I bought it a long time ago. I don't know why but for some reason, I thought that it didn't work so I just tossed it aside. I started using it again though and actually, it isn't half bad. It works well enough as a finishing powder and seems to control some shine. It's very average but, it works, so I'm fairly impressed. =]
i love this! it's a great price and the texture is very smooth. it doesnt work as a foundation, but is great over it or just over shiny spots on a bare face.
