so.. i got this de-mattifying powder just because i love UD... i am a big fan of them so i thought this would be a great product.. ahhh.. not so much.... i get oily in just a couple of hours... will stick to make up forever's HD powder... so much better, with MUFE, i literally stay oil-free all day..
btw...i really love the case, though... so rocker chick..
Not a big fan really. The smell makes my tummy turn and I don't feel it's super awesome either. The sponge sucks and while I think a kabuki would apply best, I don't want to brush a kabuki over my finished makeup in the middle of the day. It does work in mattifying the oil but it does set white.
This is a good mattifying powder in pressed form.
I use it personally and will continue to use it until it is used up -- it has lasted a good while although I do vacilate between this and my blot powder.
This is much better than a rice powder although rice may be a component... I am not allergic to it and it does take the shine and leaves makeup untouched.
good.. but not great.
Expensive, but does the job if you have an oily T-Zone like I do. I'd honestly rather save my money and get a loose setting powder from Makeup Forever, but this is infinitely easier to travel with and has lasted me quite a bit, so I'll bite my tongue and continue to use it until I'm out.
This goes with me everywhere! It's my best friend around lunch time. I have a very oily t zone, and by 12-1 my t zone is super shiney! I take this out, swpie a little across my face, and I'm good the rest of the day! The packaging is very cute too! It's a tad expensive, but I've had mine over a year, and I'm not seeing any pan yet. I would tell everyone about this, and how wonderful it is. I will most def buy this again!
I agree with the general comment on the "white sheen" that the product brings. it's good at marrifying, but yea it takes life away from my face, but not too much. so I will finish it and try another brand's blotting powder.
oh and the texture is not very fine; it's kinda chunky
I really wanted to love this product, for the reason that, I thought it would control my oily skin. It didn't, it made me break out. I placed in on my t-zone n developed horrible cysts that took days to heal! I regretted buying this but couldn't return it to Sephora because I lost the receipt! =( Totally waste of money for me. And my advice would be that if your interested keep your receipt just in case you don't like it! because it's not cheap, n basically I just paid for a mirror!
This is a great powder. I have combination skin, and live in a humid climate. These two are a terrible combination and I've tried so many products that do not work. But, this UD powder WORKS! It mattifies, and it's great if applied only to the t-zone area. It does not block any other products from working like if you need highlighter or a bronzer overtop because a little bit of it goes a long way. I love this. I am very fair though, so I don't notice the fact that the powder is whitish, but using a light hand helps a lot. Great packaging, great product
I love the packaging and I do like how this immediately removes shine from my face. However even though it is advertised as a translucent powder, I still definitely get a white or ashy film on my NW35 to NC42 complexion. It's not too noticeable which is why I continue to use it but *I* can definitely see the difference. It doesn't bother me too much though because it does take away shine like I mentioned and after a quick spritz of Fix+ or Evian spray, it looks fine. It also does a good job of keeping the oil away for an additional 2-3 hours. My biggest gripe with this however is the amount of product you get for the price. For $29 you get .4 oz of De-Slick but for $21 you get .42 oz of MAC's Blot powder without the slight white cast on your face. I am a sucker for packaging and have already re-purchased this once but I don't think I'll be buying it again after my little discovery. I'll be sticking with MAC which does the same exact thing for cheaper. If you don't have access to MAC or MAC's blot powder formula doesn't work for you, then this product is a good investment.
i love this powder. i just apply it with a brush. it does look cakey at first but i fix that by blotting with a damp makeup sponge. The packaging is super cute (:
