I use the crayon concealer in W-4/5. I use this Powder in W-7 as a bronzer. The shade has no pink. It is a great golden tan color. It stays on my oily skin for hours. No touch up needed! Highly recommended!
I'm NW45 in MAC's Studio fix.
I'm C8 Cocoa
I think I have found another makeup company that matches my skin tone! I apply this with a Kabuki brush.... I use this as a power over MAC's Studio Sculpt concealer and thats it....
Being that this is the winter... I think I will be out of luck for the summer months as I am sure to get a little sun... so I'll be back to Studio Fix then.
I bought this back in high school because it was a buy one get one free deal and haven't really used it until recently. I hate using the sponge because it annoys me so I use a big fluffy brush instead. It's alright. I've honestly never used powder because I've always had good skin and didn't want to have a sudden breakout. I've recently started to use it because I seem to be getting pimples on my cheeks so I kind of wanted to cover it up and it does an okay job for that. Even though it's not meant to cover up pimples...with concealer it can look quite good. I won't be buying it again because I really want to find something better that gives great coverage.
I use this lines liquid foundation as well in N1. I have mild redness, acne prone skin, I'm dry in spots and oily in others. After I put the liquid on I finish with this. It's definitely not supposed to be used as a fishing powder but I like heavy coverage. Good tip for serious coverage, use the included applicator.
I love it. the only negative is you can feel it on your face and i feel like a pot of it only lasts a month w. everyday use.
I bought this foundation looking for a cheaper alternative to my Estee Lauder Double Wear powder foundation (32 USD compare to L'Oreal's 11 USD) and was VERY disappointed. I guess it isn't fair to compare the two brands, but in general it wasn't a good foundation. Here is why:
1) It doesn't blend well.
2) Doesn't provide much coverage.
3) Cannot be layered- or else it WILL get very cakey
4) Just cakey in general. It looked like it just sat on top of my skin even with a light layer. It looked nice in yellow light, but in natural lighting you can definitely tell I'm wearing foundation
It was a perfect color match, though, I'll give you that.
If you can't fork out the money for Estee Lauder's powder foundation, you should try Revlon's One Step Compact cream-powder foundation. I returned the L'Oreal and got that instead- which provided much more coverage, blended much better, and was a good color match too.
I bought this in Warm. I don't care for it, it is blotchy, doesn't blend well, and makes my skin orange. Also smells weird.
pretty good powder does wat it says on the packaging lasts a long time. i use a big buffer brush and it goes on really nice on my skin.
Okay, I have this in W4, and I think it matches my skin perfectly. I use it simply to get rid of some of the oilies on my T-zone.
This isn't a good powder if your looking for coverup. It's very light and comfortable but it doesn't last very long.
On the bright side, the packaging is great.
I used this foundation way back in college. I loved this foundation. Controls my oilies a bit and it matches my skin tone really. I would've probably continued using this if i didn't find my way to MAC studiofix.
I bought this a while back. The first time I used it I hated it. I thought it looked awful and didnt really blend well. I used the sponge that came in the package. I tried this again about a week or so ago, this time with a big fluffy brush and it was actually wearable. Not so bad. But, I probably wont use it much though for one reason or another.
