This powder foundation photographs beautifully and performs very well under hot humid conditions. I have normal skin with hardly any oil - I wear this on days I spend outdoors and it looks even better with time. On me, it tends to be a bit chalky when first applied. A real performer.
I'm pleasantly surprised by this mineral foundation and I've been using it consistently for one month (that is a lot coming from fickle-minded me). I usually apply a moisturizer, a blemish balm with spf/pa, and then swirl this powder lightly on my face. The coverage is decent and the result is non-cakey.
What really amazes me is its staying power. I've just started working so it's 9am to 7pm for me. This foundation somehow manages to stay on my face for 10 hours without major melting. I don't have to do touch-ups at all. NONE of my previous foundations had managed to do so. ( I have mildly oily face and stay in an air-conditioned room all the time, although I live in tropical country.)
Tips: blend really well using circular motion and apply a little bit at one time.
Finding a perfect shade is a bit tricky for sure. I don't think I've got my right shade...But since I apply lightly and blend well, it's not that obvious.
I do hope it can improve its brush. It's too stiff and those bristles practically scratch my face. continued >>
This is a fantastic powder. I love it because it really matches my skin tone (I have very fair skin and most powder and foundation looks too yellow or orange on my face) it also keeps my face from looking too oily. I only have to reapply once a day. I am very impressed by the formulation as well as the range of colors / shades. I will use again.
Since I started MAC Studio Fix powder, this just does not stand up anymore...sorry Loreal
This product is my favorite compact, I have oily skin and this does the trick.Also with my deep skin tone often I find it dificult to find a shade that matches.With true blend there are a wide range of shades and has great coverage but doesn't look like your wearing a ton of makeup.
Threw away my MAC studio fix compact after finding this stuff!
If you havent tried it... try it!
Really liked this product. Gave a great matte finish and looked natural. I got medium coverage. I used a darker shade as my bronzer.
i love this powder!!!! its soft and natural i picked it up for summer foundation and in the liquid foundation in true match im n1 soft igvory so i assumed the powder would be the same color so i picked up the n1 powder a week later and i applied it without the liquid because this was going to be my new summer foundation and it looked so great but durring application, i realized it was super dark and super pink which i hate more than anything. i went back to the store and i picked up the w1 powder because it was way lighter than the the n1 powder i got home and applied it and it was way better than the other powder im so glad i bought it and sometimes it does look a little cakey but i just spray some water and glycerin over that to set my powder makeup and its truly beautiful the only thing that sucked about it was the price..i paid 11.00 which i think was a bit pricey for just powder
My Clinique powder decided to turn on me after I dyed my blond hair a bit more lighter.....my skin looked terrible and pink....then it got oily. I realized with my lighter hair I couldn't make the powder match so I went to the drugstore looking for a quick fix and decided to try this. I really wish I had purchased this product before the Clinique Double superpwder because it looks SO natural and its super easy to apply. Not to mention the price was way cheaper then Clinique. I found that finding the right color match was easy to because they have signs that tell you if you are a Warm, Cold or Neutral skin tone...by reading the signs (what colors you look best in etc..) I found that my color was Neutral. N1 was my match and over top my Maybelline Mineral foundation it looks very nice for a drugstore.....I very happy with this and might consider buying the blush. The only Con is that this stuff can get be a tad drying, but only only on my nose so I apply Vaseline before hand. All in All I Love this powder and it hasn't made my skin oily yet. Hopefully it never does...I'm very happy with this =D
Too cakey and very made up kinda look, even with my oily skin it still looks very powdery after few hours... My cousin who's using it also didn't like it cos of the cakey texture. Luckily i got a sample to try first, would not buy it.
One lippie cos the only thing i like about this is the pretty silver casing..
I buy so many cosmetic products it's insane, but I don't keep most of them! I will buy and buy and buy until I find something I will use. This is something I will buy again! I use a different kind of liquid foundation and it leaves lines...I hate those...and when I use the True Match over it, you can't see a single line! There are a couple of problems though! First being that the packaging kinda sucks. It's pretty to look at, but the applicator is on the other side with the mirror. So if you are like me and use the little mirror on your compac then this is a pain in the butt. You have to get the applicator and turn it over, get some powder, then turn it back over to look in the mirror to see yourself but it on...and so on and so forth until your done! The other problem is that my face gets really oily during the day, so I have to reaply it more than once. I don't have a lot of time during the day to reaply so a lot of the time I walk around looking greasy! I don't think that's the powders fault, that's the way my face has always been, and I've never found a make up that fixes or helps it, but I will use this product over and over again...
oh, and did I mention that I don't brake out as often after using this product.
I normally use liquid foundations because powder often makes my face look flaky and pale, but since I've read so many positive reviews here, and being a frequent L'Oreal user, I've decided to give it a try. It's a wee bit expensive, but I thought it was worth it. First of all, I really like how smooth and natural it make my skin feels, and most importantly, it presents a natural appearance rather than making my face look as if I've applied heavy stage makeup (as past experience has shown me). In addition, my face tends to get incredibly oily during the summer, but I'm amazed at how the powder hasn't "melt" after several hours outdoors. Overall, it's a great product, and I've definitely found my "match"!
