After recently purchasing it at my local target I have fallen in love with this powder. After using concealer and my own tinted moisturizer, this pairs well over top both of those. I'm not pale white, but I have very light skin. I decided to try the "Light/Medium" or "824B" I think the packaging is very slim and easily kept in my makeup bag. The price was about 4 or 5 dollars but I was in desperate need of a "cheaper" powder and decided to just try this out and I'm so glad I did. I had been using my mothers TARTE powder from Sephora and I thought nothing could compare to that one. Her TARTE powder felt great and smooth on my skin, also was not cakey at all. This one is not as great as the quality you will get from Sephora but still does a very wonderful job on my skin, smooth and not cakey at all. This powder is perfect for someone who hasn't used powder yet and wants to give it a try. The shades aren't hard to figure out I matched mine myself and just got a second opinion from my mom who was with me at the store. The only thing I do not really care for about this powder is the sponge that it comes with. It does work if you needed it, but to me the sponge smells a little funny. I just have a face brush that I use with this and it works better then the sponge. To warn you, this is a very powdery product. I can tap my brush into this and I can see the powder almost flake up where I tapped my brush. I don't mind this though because little particles of powder just become more loose and easier to pick up, as I usually use a little more then I put on my brush in the first place. Overall, I feel that this is a really good powder. I would definitely recommend it as well as buy it again.
It does cover all! I swipe a small amount and it's enough! It feels great, I forget I have it on. Leaves my skin baby smoooooooooooth and effortlessly perfect. :D I neeeever used powders but this was great! Like I said, it's effortless! I'm still going to try another powder just to compare. And I never use this when I'm having a dry skin day! It feels like it's sucking out any moisture i might have.
The coverage is insane. I've never had a pressed powder that doesn't cake if you pack it on. You can use as much as this and it won't cake. The texture of this powder is also pretty silky and high end like but not as luxurious as the revlon nearly naked powder (which has less coverage, 5x the price, and cakes but is still amazing) which was my previous holy grail but this beats it by far!! I'd pay $50 for it. I love how although I get dark in summer it still blends without buffing away the coverage. I get the darkest shade(light) at Walmart and its perfect for my nc25 skin tone but for the summer I get to nc30 and it still works. I love how even though you get tons of product the package it's compact. I would repurchase for sure!
I bought this powder for about $2 buy one get one 50% off at Walgreens in shade 821B fair.this powder was light enough for my skin tone but looked very cakey when applied with the sponge.the line is called cover all but I guess this is just a pressed powder because it did not cover all.I would recommend just using this as a setting powder or for just a little extra coverage. This also combined with my oily skin made me look like a cake face not to mention it broke me out so bad. Some of the worst acne I've ever had. The packaging is convenient fit nicely into my bag but one of the compacts I bought broke the next day. You get about 7 .5 grams which did not last very long I also found I had to seriously touch up mid day. It was long gone off my face. (Mid March to April 50 degree weather) I would not recommend this powder to a friend.
This product is mediocre at best. To start off, the packaging is decent, and price can't be beat. The sleek design is convenient, but the fact that it has no mirror lowers the value. As far as coverage goes, there is none. The lightest shade is almost like that of a translucent HD setting powder. If used on top of a light/medium coverage foundation, you just won't get that little bit of extra cover up. Lastly, it's extremely drying and chalky. I have combination skin with oily AND dry patches, and this powder magnifies my peeling areas. This product is a waste.
This powder is perfect for oily, acne prone skin! My face gets clearer when i use this powder... i use a powder brush to apply instead of the applicator sponge, and it makes my skin very matte, all day. And its cheap! Which is great for a college student :) lol. The color also doesnt oxidize... i am pale and use the Fair/Light shade! Great powder!
Just purchased this powder for $3 in light/medium. I've only used it once and I am thrilled with the results!
I usually wear foundation, blush, bronzer but rarely use powder. I've really been missing out. This powder made my face perfectly matte and my skin felt super smooth. The coverage is fantastic...it evens out my skintone and makes my face look flawless. Doesn't look cakey either.
The packaging is really cheap, of course. But, I do like how sleek this compact is.
I have only tried one other powder, the Covergirl compact, so I think I'm still going to shop around...but, I will repurchase this to keep in my stash.
This is very drying. I could feel it sucking the life out of my skin the instant I applied it. This is not for me.
Great product! Matte finish and beautiful matching color with the foundation! Will definitely buy again as it covered all of my imperfections and red spots!
I love this powder, it just sets foundation so well! I was just gonna buy the coverall foundation, but this was on sale, so I got it, and WOW, it gives such a great coverage. Paired with the coverall foundation its great. But you can also use this on top of any other foundation and it gives you more of a matte finish even if its not a matte foundation, such a great drugstore powder.
