I didn't like this at all. Didn't break me out, which some powders do, but was very chalky.
I think it's a semi good powder. It's cheap. It dosen't cover the blemishes or redness, but it helps the foundation stay in put. It's a okay alternative if there aren't products like MAC, clinique fx.
I've repurchased this powder a few times now, and I must say that I quite like it. It's actually really good! I find that many HE products don't do their jobs as good as this powder. It really helps control the oil in the skin, and it keeps its promises. It doesn't stay on the skin for long though - a few touch-ups during the day is necessary. All in all, I like this product - it's not luxurious but it's fine and does its job really well.
I bought this product today, and for me it looks very natural and smooth. It's my first powder, so I wouldn't spend much money on it, I would just try a powder and I chose this - and I'm really happy for it! I've chosen the colour Warm Beige, which is perfect for my skin. I haven't really oily skin, but I think it's kind of shiny sometimes, and I think it really makes it look matte, and your skin is soft after applying it.
I'm gonna buy this again!
Today is the first day I'm using this & I've never seen my face stay matte for this long in my life. I apply my makeup at 6:30am & by 10:30, sometimes even 9:30, I'm an oil spill. It's 3:00pm right now & my face is just now starting to get a little shine to it. I can't believe after all the expensive powders I've tried to stay matte, this $5 one did the trick. The packaging is terrible I will admit that. I don't really care that it didn't come with an applicator because I would've used my own brush anyway. So far, I'm loving it. I will keep using it :)
I randomly picked this up in Peach Glow as part of a Priceline buy 2 get one 1 free deal about a month ago. I love it! I dust it on with a basic powder brush (Ecotools) to set my foundation and it gives me a flawless finish every time. My skin is combination-dry so I don't even need to reapply during the day. It looks the same all day long and doesn't cake up at all.
While I love the product, I definitely don't love the packaging. It's hard to tell from photos but basically this comes with a plastic lid that is sort of 'screwed' on except there's nothing to really screw it on to. It's flimsy and a bit ridiculous. I wouldn't want to have it rattling around in a makeup case or handbag because the lid would definitely come off. As I just use this powder at home, it's not a big problem for me. Will need to think of a solution for traveling though.
Meh. In the world of a thousand things to try, I would not re purchase this. Will mattify your look but the finish is nothing special.
I do not like this powder. It does not keep my face 'matte' for more than a couple hours and the packaging is terrible. It can also end up looking cakey if you use a brush that is too dense. On the plus it has lasted me 1.5 times longer than my dream matte powder and will still last me about 2 months or so. Won't repurchase.
I've been using this powder for at least 4 years and I'm not exaggerating when I say ... I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT IT! I have extremely pale skin with serious red (on bad days even purple :[) acne scarring in places and an overall awfully blotchy complexion, and all I have used for 4 years is Rimmel Hide the Blemish stick concealer (Ivory) on my scars and this Stay Matte Pressed Powder (Peach Glow) all over, and I can achieve a flawless complexion no problem, which should be impossible with my awful skin! Not to mention I can buy both products for under a tenner (Wahey! :]) And I have never achieved a better match for my skin tone either. I've been tempted to try other powders but have never really bothered because I'm 99.9% sure I would never find another powder as good as this for a better price, so I remain loyal to this amazing product and intend to for a very long time! The packaging has never bothered me and I've probably bought at least 30-40 of these in my time. In fact the lid has never fallen off with any of mine and the only time I recall the powder shattering is when I dropped it on the floor the second I stepped out of Boots with it! Woopsie! :[ To cut a long story short, this powder does what it says on the tin, you will Stay Matte if you use it!
I've used this a few times in the past, and it's nothing special. I have the kind of oily skin that needs a good blot 15 minutes (I'm not joking) after I apply my makeup. 15 minutes. I have never found anything to stop that from being the case, this included. The packaging is god awful. The lid comes off easily, there is no mirror, and it doesn't come with any sort of sponge or puff. I do like the way it makes my skin look, but really, I would love to find something that will actually keep my face matte for at least a few hours. I'll continue the search!
