I have never been a huge fan of foundations. I always looked washed out with them and I never knew why. Call me stupid but I finally realized why, I was getting foundations with the base for warm. I tried this in cool and wow. There's a definite difference now. It looks natural and it matches perfectly. There is no cakey feeling or dry feeling to this foundation either, so I am impressed. It is a powder, so keep that in mind when trying it out, some people feel powders look dried out on the face. Overall a good product for the $7 it costs! I feel its similar to the other foundation I like a lot, Pur Minerals.
I purchased this product in W1 Porcelain. I was excited because I have very pale skin and this looked like a good match for me--hard to find. The powder is okay quality, very buildable but as you put more on it can get a little cakey. The color did match me pretty well. The packaging is quite sturdy, although the included sponge feels kind of cheap.
The reason I would not purchase again is it smells BAD. I don't know if I purchased an expired product or what, but it smells kind of like rotten eggs. I used it for a couple of days hoping I would get used to the smell, but all day I catch whiffs of it and it's just gross. I'll give this away to one of my pale friends who doesn't mind the smell as much as I do!
I've bought several of these powders and LOVE them. For a drugstore product, it goes on smooth and velvety with no cakiness or laying on top of your skin. The puff that comes with it is like a sponge and applies evenly. I apply this over my foundation, I do have to reapply throughout the day ( I do live in humid weather too). I will definitely repurchase this for the price and flawless application it provides.
I particularly love this line because of the variety of shades it comes in. I have a hard time finding products with warm undertones and this is a perfect match for me!
The product is soft, pigmented and easy to work with. Not sure if I would ever use the sponge it comes with; I apply it with a powder brush to set in my concealer and even out my skin.
I think this works great! It hasn't broken me out, it looks natural, it matches my skin and provides me with some very light, natural coverage. I imagine if I wore foundation underneath, this would be a major bonus.
I def. think I will be buying this again just because it has been so dependable. Even if I do stray and try some other products, I can see this remaining as a staple in my collection.
This is a decent product, but nothing exceptional. I don't really wear powder much anymore, but this was my go-to in high school. It has a wide range of shades, which is nice. I'm so pale that sometimes it's hard for me to find a good match but that was no problem in this line. The powder is finely milled and soft, which I also like. The packaging is needlessly bulky with a separate compartment for the sponge and every time I bought it (which was several times, I was young and dumb) it cracked. I agree with reviewer who said it stuck to her dry spots. Not bad for the drugstore, but there are better compact powders to be had.
I love this product. I really don't like using powders but i love using this over my foundation. It gives me a natural coverage and it wears a long time over my foundation. i use this twice a week and i still haven't hit pan on it but when i do i will be purchasing again.
I love the compact this product comes in! Very easy to carry and use. The powder goes on easily, blends well, and has excellent staying power. There is no detectable odor. I also like that this product line comes in a variety of shades. I usually use L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation, and then I use this powder with a brush to set the look. This powder, however, has such excellent coverage that I can also use it sans the liquid foundation. When I don't have time to do a full makeup application I "cheat" with this powder. It evens out my skin tone, gives slight coverage to blemishes, and blends well with blush. I love it!
I've bought this 2-3 times and for a drug store powder I think it's the best one i've used. I usually just use it in the morning and it stays/doesn't change colour. It feels light on my skin and doesn't look chalky or cakey. My younger sister uses it too, and she has more oily skin. Overall, for the price and how well it works, i'd rather pay less and have a decent powder! Plus! I am clutzy and drop everything, and i've dropped this more than once and the powder hasn't shattered on me yet :P
Coverage is great and it's not cakey at all! Stays on all day! Love this! Just purchased my second one!
I bought this powder as a quick fix from the supermarket after my beloved MAC minerlize skinfinsh got broken. I wish I hadn't of bothered. I tried the product and compared it to others in the shop and decided it was a good match for me. The first time i used it I liked it ok. But from then on it seemed to settle into a orangey colour after about an hours wear. It has a nice texture and blends nicely but it looks a bit artifical on my skin. It also caused my chin to erupt in nasty looking spots so I stopped using it pretty quickly.
The compact is quite sturdy which is a plus if you're carrying about a lot but I found having the sponge applicator underneath the powder quite irritating. the mirror is also difficult to use as its on the small side.
Another plus is it goes on nicely if using a brush. I wouldn't recommend using the sponge as I found it very easy to over apply with this.
Overall its a bit disapppointing, it won't break the bank but I don't thinks its a true match for me.
