This rating is actually a 3 to 3.5, not completely a 3. I purchased this last week because of reviewers here and on YouTube recommending it. It is very inexpensive and I wanted to give it a shot. I have oily skin and had ran out of powder a while back. So when I applied this powder (in the translucent shade) over my foundation, I immediately noticed the difference. My face looked matte and flawless. I was so in love with how fresh and clean my skin looked and how velvety soft the appearance of it was. I then put my makeup away and headed out for the day. Looking in the mirror every now and then, I noticed that my makeup started to look a bit dewy after about the 2 hour mark. Hmm, a bit disappointing. I didn't bring it with me because the top seems to pop off very easily so transporting it in a purse or bag might end up in a mess. So, in order to keep your face matte, you will have to reapply this powder at least a few times throughout the day. My skin isn't SUPER oily but it seemed that it was too oily for this powder to last more than a couple hours. You'll probably have to find a compact to store this in to carry with you because, like I said, the top pops off easily.
I really do love the initial look of perfection this gives my skin. I think I'd be happy if it were to last just a couple hours longer so that I'd only have to touch up 2 or 3 times a day instead of the 4 or 5 times this seems to require. I would purchase again because it is cheap, but I will look for a longer lasting powder in the meantime.
This powder makes even my dry skin look like a cake! I don't even wanna know what it would look like on oily skin! Does not help mattify, instead it just builds up on your face. If you are looking for a good drugstore powder, pick up l'oreal true match....not this!
I bought this powder after hearing so meny good reviews, I have a dry T-zone,and oily every were else, also forehead acne, it's a amazing powder on its own but I found It sat in fine lines and caked abit, but overall amazing powder
I don't know why this product has such a hype around it. I have oily skin and this didnt make me stay matte for more than 5 minutes.
I love this powder! I'm on my fourth so far. I have very oily skin and this stuff keeps me matte for hours. The price is great, get mine for $6 at shoppers. The only downside is the packaging, the plastic is very thin so they crack easily. 2 of my powders have shattered. I wear "sandstorm".
This powder works really great for me. I'm 15 and my face (actually just my nose) gets really oily. This stuff manages really well to control the excess oil and gives my face a matte finish.
The only thing that bothers me is the packaging. Its lid seems to fall off really easily; I hope they'll fix that.
The powder comes in a lot of shades, so it's not hard to find the one that fits you the best. I'm in the shade Pink Blossom. Another thing I love about it is that it doesn't make my face look cakey at all, everything looks very natural. It is also very cheap, really affordable!
So if you're looking for a good powder at a low price, this is definitley for you. Hope this hepled ;)
I like this pressed powder. It has a smooth texture unlike many drug store powders and an all day matte finish. My only complaint is that wish it were in a mirrored compact because the container sometimes opens easily in my purse. It would also be nice if a puff or sponge were included.
I bought this powder for the second time now and I really like this powder. I heard some beautyguru's on youtube talk about it so I thought : I have to try this powder out. The price is okay but the packaging is not very good. It opens very easily in your bag. But the powder keeps me matte for 5 to 6 hours in the winter and 3 to 4 hours in the summer. I have oily skin so that's pretty good.
Love this powder!! Gives me an amazing matte finish,it definitely helps me control shine although I still have to blot every couple hours but not as much as before and it's great for touch ups.
I have extremely oily skin and this powder helps control that. It feels really light weight on my face and you only need a little bit to keep your skin matte. Plus it's supper affordable! I love it! Pros: keeps face matte for hours Not chalky Inexpsensive Cons: packaging Limited color selection.
