Love this product! So much good reviews so I had to purchase. It kept my face shine-free for a few hours. Since its in my to-go make up bag, just a little touch up & I'm good to go. The sponge that came with it is cute but I wouldn't use it with this powder, I purchased a small puff from target for $1.09 & comes with two!! & fits perfectly in the case. Would purchase it again & definitely worth a try because its less than $10
I love this product! Just got it a few days ago since it finally came into stock and I've used it every day since. My regular powder is Mac natural finish (I think that's the name) in dark... Because that's what the sales girl insisted I needed. :( so yeah I hate the Mac powder. It's too dark and it goes oily super fast. I now apply a teensy bit of the Mac and then lightly dust the welcome matte over it. Gives that airbrushy 1950s look I love of flawless soft skin. Even with the tiny bit I use. <3 my new favorite. It's possible that over a foundation and powder that is my shade it may turn my face chalky but over the slightly too tan foundation and the very small amount used it's perfect.
I am LOVING this powder! I've actually switched to this from my all time fave Clinique powder. I've gotten more compliments on my skin and complexion since I switched. It lasts all day and doesn't look cakey. It's also super cheap!!! The only thing I hate is that it takes a few swipes with my brush to get enough product on it.
I will buy this again!!
My new favorite powder! I love love love it. Not to mention, it's totally adorable. It came with a pink heart shaped sponge ( which actually works great ). It lasts forever!
Even though I generally have really healthy skin, my t-zone has been oilier than I would like in recent years.
It does what you expect it to do - it mattifies the skin with a small amount of product and it isn't obvious. The powder is soft and translucent. The packaging is sleek and cute and the sponge is nice, but the latch broke on me and it kept swinging open so I couldn't carry it on the go with me.
I wouldn't buy it again because I still want to try other mattifying powders... and because I don't want to step foot in another Walmart again.
At first I really liked this. It'd keep me matte and not give that powder look to it. As time as gone on though it doesn't keep me as matte. My oil peeks through around, if not a bit before, mid-day. I wish there was a powder that'd keep me matte all day but I think I'm looking for a miracle.
I bought this powder because my face has been getting a lot more shiny throughout the day (typical T-zone), and I love it! It has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine. I have fairly sensitive skin, so I typically go for higher-end powders and foundations, but Hard Candy products do NOT break me out at all! In fact, I feel that my face has had less breakouts since using this, possibly because it keeps my face from getting so oily. The only con is that it does make my face quite stark white, as other people have said. It doesn't really bother me because I use bronzer on top anyways, and the main areas I focus on are my forehead, nose and chin. But overall, great product!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS POWDER!!!! It is a perfect match for my very pale skin with pink undertones and my skin that is extemely oily, red and acne proned. I have been using this powder since April. I have just recently hit pan on my first compact. It controls my oily skin like no other powder has been able to before. It has not broken me out. It is pigmented so I am not for sure how it will match darker skin tones. This powder paired with Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation in Classic Ivory 10 is a perfect match for my skin! I highly recommend this product to people who are looking for a matte powder to control their oil. Also to extremely pale people like me! And as well if you are acne proned b/c at least IME this did not break me out! I will absoutley repurchase this powder. I mean for $6.00 (USD) it can not be beat IMO at least! Thank You Hard Candy!!!!! <3
EDIT: I still use this and still agree with everything I said above. But I have changed the foundation I was using with this. I am now using the Almay Clear Complexion Foundation in 140 Buff. The Neutrogena Skin Clearing Foundation in Classic Ivory 10 turned out to be much too yellow and dark for my skin and it broke me out. Also a note on the pink sponge that comes with it, which is so adorable, it is great for touch ups. I like using a powder brush for applying it over my foundation. The mirror is really cute too and I love the whole packaging of the product. I am still in love with this powder and still use it every day! :D
EDIT: I no longer use the Almay or Neutrogena foundation with this. For now since my acne has cleared up (hope I do not jinx myself haha:) I only use this powder and some concealer and my skin looks flawless but still like my skin and not cakey or like makeup. I am still in with this powder! And yes I am still using my first compact of this that I have had since April! :D
ive been alternating between this and my mac blot. the powdered look is more noticeable using this, as the blot powder just removes shine and doesnt add pigment. i do like the matte finish and coverage it gives. i do prefer this to set my concealer/foundation and use the blot to touch up if needed throughout the day or night. i would re-purchase for the quality, price and cuteness!!
I absolutely love this product. I've also tried the too faced powder. And when it comes to price, Hard Candy wins above all. The quality is great too, i love the cute sponge (:
I use a different sponge just to not ruin the pink one><
I recommend this to people who haven't tried powder, those who want affordable/ great working powder, and those who enjoy a cute looking product.
Not to mention the whole (no use on animals)
LOVE THAT <3
(keep in mind that all face types react differently. This product may or may not last all day depending not only on your face type, but the environment you are in. I reapply at least one after its original application. And the powder is translucent. Maybe it will be different to others but for a product this cheap i cant complain)
