I purchased this powder a little while ago and kind of forgot about it. Then, one day I rediscovered it just sitting in my makeup drawer. I decided to dig it out and been wearing it for about 2 months now. In the morning, after I put foundation on I run a big powder brush over the powder and dust the entire face. I use Transparent and love it. It doesn't cake up and it's great at setting the makeup and for touch-ups throughout the day. For touch-ups, I just use the powder puff it comes with and it works fine. I wash them often tough. The packaging is kinda bulky. It takes up lots of room in my makeup bag, but other than that I'm pretty happy with this powder. The powder goes for $25 at a department store and I think it's very reasonable for the size and the quality. I'll definitely buy this again.
Out of all the powders I've tried, I really think this one's the best so far. I only gave it 4 lippies since on dry spots it can look a bit chalky. I have combination/oily acne prone skin and this does a great job of evening my skin out and leaving it silky looking and feeling. I break out regardless of what make up I do or don't wear, but this hasn't seemed to make it worse at all. I also like that it has heavier coverage than some other powders so I can set concealer without it being an obvious blob under my powder. I will be buying this again :)
It's a great product, I use Light\medium though now in summer when I get tanned it looks too bright for me.Anyway, as a mattifying powder it works good, also coverages enough, I use it alone over moisturizer
I love this powder! I use a concealer where I need it, then put this on over it. I don't like the feel of liquid foundations, as my skin is very oily, so this works well for me. I have used it for about 8 years now. HG!!!!! The only thing I don't like is that it is alittle difficult to open and it sometimes slips out of my hands and breaks.....it is also alittle pricey, but I will continue to buy because it is just perfect for me.
I think I have used this for almost 6 years now and I have always loved it. I do not wear foundation and just a little bit of concealer and this powder has made my face almost flawless. I have a normal skin but live in rather hot and humid climate and this powder has kept up very well. This has never broke me out either. I will continue to use it as long as it's there.
I absolutely love this powder. It has to be the best I have ever tried. I wear if over Futurist foundation and my skin looks flawless. It never gets cakey and controls shine quite well. It leaves my face with a soft glow. I threw out the spongy applicator that is included in the compact and apply it with a big, fluffy face brush. Will definitely repurchase.
I'm in my 20s with combination skin that tends to develop an oily t-zone in the warmer months, and I bought this after I broke my Px Virtual Matte pressed powder. I rec'd a gift card to a department store that carries only three brands and since I had never tried EL makeup before (and the SA said EL owns Px and "they're very similar." I'm such a sucker.) I thought I'd give it a shot. Now, I don't know how this looks over EL foundation but over Px VM medium to full coverage liquid foundation it does not look good. It starts off extremely cakey and obvious. Less than two hours later it looks like I've stayed late at work and had a rough day. It stays cakey and becomes creased underneath my eyes and disappears everywhere else. If you think this might be a product you'd like, my advice is to get an early makeover and wear it all day prior to purchase. It might save you some money. UPDATE: I used this on my face without Px foundation underneath and by the end of the day my ENTIRE face had broken out. I threw it in the trash.
I do respect the fact some people do not care about dangerous ingredients in the cosmetics, but if you do read this.
THIS PRODUCT IS LOADED WITH ingredients posing potential CANCER risks, ingredients posing potential gastrointestinal or liver toxicity hazards, ingredients with potential to instigate immune system response that can include itching, burning, scaling, hives, and blistering of skin (sensitization).
A fantastic pressed powder. It's great for oily or combo skin (oily 'T' zone). I use Light/medium for my warm toned skin. Wonderful coverage (may be a little heavy for some people) -it certainly helps with oiliness. I've been using this for ten years. This powder rates a VERY close second to my favourite - Clinique Stay Matte Sheer pressed powder. Price: I have not bought Double Matte in a while, I expect it would be approx $50.00 AUD
Had this a long time ago. It really was a nice product and departure from MAC Studio Fix but I really went through this compact very fast.
