I've bought this multiple times. It's dirt cheap, easy to find and the shade selection is a plus! I hate hate hate the packaging though. Impossible to travel with. I'm not impressed with the ingredients. It is mattifying and works very well but there are SO many preservatives in this powder it's a little ridiculous. I also read coconut oil as an ingredient so it's not oil free. This didn't interfere with my fairly oily skin so I'm not too bothered.
I'd love it more if there weren't so many preservatives. Otherwise, a great product for less than $4 and readily available at Walmart.
Excellent powder! It does what it claims: Matifies and lasts. Also, it doesn't look powdery (I always use a light hand) and I might be seeing things, but I think it minimized the appearance of my pores. So, if you have oily or combination skin, try this!
Just for reference, I'm NC30 and I have this in Sandstorm, very good match (not that it provides much coverage).
I haven't been using git much lately because the weather and dermatological treatment are making my skin dry and flaky, but normally I'm combination and this is a life saver.
The only con is the package, which is really bad. I wouldn't mind the lack of mirror or sponge, but at least the top should close properly, and it simply doesn't, so, I keep it at home. Being able to carry it in my bag would be handy, the only reason why I'm taking a lippy off.
This is my favorite powder. It gets rid of the shine and doesn't leave a powdery residue. It is my second one, and I will buy it again and again.
Keeps my makeup matte all day without having to touch it up and minimises the appearance of pores without breaking me out! Amazing powder- would definitely recommend it.
This powder gives a light coverage, it does even out skin out a little if you wear it alone. It is also very big! it lasted me 2 years to finish one. However, this powder just sits on top of your skin and make you look like you have makeup on your face. i have really oily skin and this doesn't keep me matte for long.
This product really does keep your face matte. I would not use this product by itself on the skin as I would my Mac compact but it's perfect for an everyday setting powder over foundation. I actually use it over my loreal bb cream and my makeup lasts. Not expensive at all about 4-5 bucks.
My HG powder! It does exactly what it claims to do; matte finish for hours with minimized pores. This powder is a bit more chalky than a lot of powders I've tried but it goes on so smoothly. It will only look chalky on your skin if you don't moisturize how you're supposed to before putting on makeup. What amazes me the most about this powder is that it makes me look COMPLETELY PORELESS. Like I have perfect, smooth, bright, poreless skin. its insane. I never ever ever go through powders because I get bored quickly if they don't work well, however I've hit pan with this one many times. You can't beat the price either, $4 at Target & Walmart. Many people have complained about the packaging but it doesn't bother me one bit. I like how compact it is, I don't care about it not having a brush because those usually suck anyway, and not having a mirror is fine because I touch up in a bathroom usually. also, the lid has never come off, even while traveling. TRY THIS! p.s. I used to have really bad acne in my middle school days and this didn't break me out once.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this powder! I have very oily skin and it lasted throughout the day! It remove oils andmake skin feel very soft!
One of the best drug store face powders! It does exactly what its supposed to do. It mattifies and keeps oil at bay. Only thing I noticed is if you reapply once or twice throughout the day it will start to look cakey. Also...the lid to this stuff always breaks on me and it just flies off every time I go to pick it up...but I wont complain for that price!
This is the only product I have hit the pan on! I use it religiously.
I have the lightest shade that isn't translucent, and though it is pigmented, it just adds that tiny extra amount of coverage. I never looked overly-powdered or cake-y. Though I'm sure with a heavier hand, it does have the ability to be cake up.
I have combination skin, and with my foundation, I tend to look very shiny and borderline oily. Stay Matte instantly mattifies any of those shiny areas. It's ideal for lightly brushing throughout the T-Zone. Good for putting over concealer too if you have acne.
The big problem I have with it was the extremely flimsy packaging. The top comes off way too easily and cracked in two without me even being rough with it. It is now currently being held together by duct tape.
