I never ever wear foundation, just powder over my moisturizer with sunscreen. I have super oily skin. And when I say oily, I mean I can wash my face and within an hour already see my oil peeking through. Even tho my skin is oily tho, it can have dry patches. Dehydrated? Ok enough my skin type, let me just this powder is AMAZING. AMAZING, AHHHMAZING. This makes your face looks soooo soft and smooth and just naturally perfect without looking powdery AT ALL. And oddly enough, this has been one of the best powders for my oils? No where is it marketed for controlling oil but it does just as good if not even better then mufe duo mat, studio fix, and other many oil controlling powders I own. I think this would work for all skin types to be honest because one of my good friends has really dry skin and she adores this. It is widely available at all drugstores and wal-marts and it's cheap so it wouldn't hurt to try it.:)
P.S this only comes in 4 shades
-for reference I am about NC 42 and medium deep is a great shade match.
Im dark olive and use light-medium. (i tend to go one shade lighter when i use powders instead of foundation because they always go dark). I normally wear it alone or over tinted moisturizer, & My oily skin helps this to really create a natural skin look. However, i still need blotting papers throughout the day. Too much powder reapplied in the day i will turn very dark because my oils soak right through. (So dont expect oil control.) It doesnt have a ton of coverage but does minimize my dark scars and marks. Its a very nice powder and i like it very much.
I actually really liked this product. It was smooth application and I used my own powder brush to apply. I didn't feel like I needed to pack on layer after layer to get the matte finish I was searching for. It also felt very light and I found a shade that matched my skin tone which is surprising because it didn't come in very specific shades. I didn't feel like it lasted all day, which I also should add that I play sports, so after sweating, the product didn't stay. I expected that it wouldn't stay, but for the time, it was impressive at first. Then, when I wore it over the weekend, I noticed it didn't stay for much longer than an hour, tops. I took away a point from the rating scale because the "lasting" part was not impressive to me.
Super high quality, feels smooth and silky on your skin.
I bought this as a setting powder for the Maybelline Fit me foundation, and it worked amazing! It absorbs all the shine and gives a a beautiful flawless and matte finish.
However, although it is a drugstore product, it costs 25 AUD which is expensive, so I'm still looking for a cheaper substitute.
I don't wear it alone.
- Great Quality and silky smoothness.
- Nice Packaging
- Flawless and matte finish ( As a setting powder )
- Expensive 25 AUD
- Very small and unpractical sponge.
Thank you :)
I was surprised that I liked this powder. It goes along with the Nearly Naked line which is all about minimal coverage. So I was expecting light coverage with this one. If you need more, I would suggest Revlon Colerstay powder. I don't use the sponge it comes with, it applied too much product and doesn't blend, so i just use my sephora powder brush. It gives a nice light natural finish and covers any redness on my face and works well with my dry-normal skin. The only doesnside I can see is the packaging. For a powder the compact isn't very "compact", it's a bit large if you want to carry it in a bag, but not a big deal.
This powder is super high quality. Really smooth and really nice. Over all I would highly recommend this to people with maybe dry and normal skin. This did nothing for my oily skin tbh but it makes your face feels extremely smooth.additionally it does not look valet at all! Love that about this
I super love this baby! They had the perfect shade for my asian dark skin, and it is flawless! No zombie/ashy/cakey looking at all! Plus very natural looking and light on the skin. It doesn't do much about the oiliness of my face though but still it has great coverage for a drugstore product :) this is not my first drugstore pressed powder but this is definitely the first one that satisfied me! Thank you, Revlon!
This is my favorite drugstore powder. It sets so nicely underneath the eyes over my concealer. I've tried so many powders for my under eyes and it always looks cakey. This powder is so fine and silky so you can imagine how natural it looks on the skin. That's why they call it nearly naked! It also doesn't cling to my dry patches. I've hit pan on it and that's says a lot as I never hit pan on face powders.
I love this powder! It makes my face too flawless! The medium shade matches me perfectly! They do not have a lot of shades though. Only 3 so that's the only down side to this product.
I love this powder very light weight nd it gives my skin a boost in da mornings . Also, I use the elf brush Amazing
