I bought this the other day as to go over my other TBS foundation. I expressed my concern on how my foundation last long to the sales assistant and was told that a pressed powder would 'set' my foundation, so I purchased this powder in shade 02. I'm pleasantly suprised that is DOES set my foundaton, and just finishes off my foundation look so it's more natural and not cakey at all. I'm suprised at the comments on here!! I would recommend and by this again. The compact it comes in is very sleek aswell! I used TBS face/body brush to apply in a downward motion so as to attract the little hairs.
I put a light layer of this as the finish to my makeup routine. Goes on well. Matches my skin tone. Light.
I might try something different after I use this up just because its the only face powder I've ever tried but I'm happy with it.
I bought The Body Shop Pressed Powder in shade 02. I have fair skin and found that the shade was a good match to my skin tone. The packaging is quite attractive as the mirror is quite a good size and the compact looks really smart.
However, for me this is as good as it got. I did not like this product at all, which is disapointing as I love other products from The Body Shop such as the blushers and eyeshadows. The powder seemed to dry out my skin and rather than providing a smooth finish as I expected, it seemed to draw attention to any blemishes. I do have quite sensitive skin that tends to dry in some areas so this product did not help at all. I think it is overpriced and not worth the money.
I got this as a hand-me-down from my little sister (my little sister has more make-up collection than I do. LOL!). I'm not really a big fan of The Body Shop so I know nothing about it, but of course, since it's a hand-me-down, I gave it a try.
I don't really like this pressed powder. I know that it's expensive, I think it's overpriced as well. I'm not really "wow"-ed with The Body Shop's make-ups and skin cares.
I use this as a touch up whenever my face feels oily and I'm on a day out. First, the color is too dark for me. (I have a lighter skin color than my sister). My skin color is NC35 / NC30 (in between, I guess.) and The Body Shop's pressed face-powder is #06. It's too dark, plus, it gets oily very fast too. Not to mention it's very cakey. I remember once, I re-touched my powder on the way home. While I was walking towards our place, I checked the mirror and BOOM! The powder is sooo cakey! I immediately took everything off with a clean tissue!
I will NEVER EVER use up my own money to buy any products from The Body Shop...
I was very disappointed by this product, a lot of my friends liked The Body Shop, so I tried this powder out. I thought it was quite expensive, but was told it was good... It makes my skin very dry, and doesn't really work as well as the lady from the store told me.... BUT the colour is very similar to my own skin, which can be hard to find...
This is the best pressed powder i have ever used. Firstly because i got the lighest shade and it wasnt too dark!
It doesnt look powdery at all which some pressed powders usually do and i like the packaging.
overall i think it is good quality but maybe slightly too expensive,
i LOVE how this powder looks when u first put it on, but it gets oily and shiny way too quickly. i have oily skin anyway, but i feel like with this powder i have to constantly re-apply. when i first applied it, i was amazed at how great my skin looked. in looked tanned and flawless and not chalky like other powders make me look.
if it lasted longer, this would be my god-send, but too shiny.... :(
This powder does absolutely not work for me. It's finely milled and looks really natural when applied with a big powder brush. But it doesn't reduce shine or oiliness at all and after a while, especially when it's hot outside it just turns orange on me. Very unflattering.
I purchased this product despite the horrible reviews here because I saw how it looked on my cousin= it gave her a subtle and pretty softness that I thought was naturally her skin. Granted, she had nice skin to begin with, but the powder made her skin look softer. We're both fair Asians, and I found the powder #04 to be a perfect match. I would only reccomend this for people who have good skin and want a softer glow to it. Otherwise, don't buy it because it's not going to cover up many imperfections. It's worth the price... it's considerably cheaper than the Chanel DP powder foundation I own... and personally, the DP wasn't much better for me. The fluid DP is another story (my HG foundation), but for a light powder, this is excellect- not perfect, but excellent.
The packaging is shiny and appealing... but the powder failed to impress. It covers well, but looks unnatural even if the colour's spot on. It dries your skin out awfully too. Admittedly, I do have sensitive skin - but still, I can't recommend this.
