Generally a good pressed powder for only around $3.00, goes on smooth and silky sets foundation nicely. Does control oil breakthrough well. However I bought "translucent" and its way to pale. I am light but not that light ( I normally use CG fresh look in translucent light) I also don't really care for the packaging- would much prefer a flip up compact instead of a screw "pot" type. If you can find the right shade and don't mind the packaging its a great deal!
The packaging is bad because when you put it in your purse, the cover keeps falling off. Im kinda dissapointed because I like the product, I think it does a great job of keeping the oiliness to a minimum. Unfortunantly, it made me slightly break out. Just little whiteheads but I rarely break out and thats why I wouldnt repurchase.
This is a good powder for the price. It keeps away oilyness but I'm sure theres a better powder out there.
Overall it's a pretty good product for a cheap price. I got it at Walmart for 3 dollars. It makes my skin have a matte look and i need that since im very oily. the packaging isn't that bad at all.
This is a good product, but there wasn't a shade yellow enough for me (what else is new), and I hate the fact that it's not portable. I have to keep it at home and use a brush with it.
They seriously need to make this more portable if it's truly to be used as a pressed powder. I use it with a brush, like loose powder and it stays at home.
I got #4, Sandstorm, and I love it. It does a great job of controlling oil all day, and I like this color more than Jane pressed powder. If it had a better container it would be a 5, HG for sure. Super affordable too!
I bought this on a whim one day at the Shoppers Drug Mart - not pleased. The powder is like other drugstore powders I've tried; heavy, cakey and cheap looking. I ended up using it as a eyebrow highlighter/blender (for when eyeshadow looks too dark) and for that it works pretty well. That's the only reason I haven't thrown it out! Save your money and spend it on a high-end pressed powder, you won't be sorry.
for a drugstore product- i am impressed. i use the "transparent" color- which is very light, and a good shade for me. this powder is excellent- the container is huge, perfect for swirling your brush around in. the powder is fine, and gives excellent coverage, without looking chalky. it keeps my face looking matte and keeps any shininess at bay for hours. it definitely rivals some of the higher end products, and i have spent loads on other high end loose and pressed powders that haven't even compared. for the price of this powder (i got this for $5 CAD when the drugstore had a 20% off sale on), it's a real winner. i would definitely repurchase. the only drawback to this product is the lid on the container, which doesn't stay put. so i just slip the container into one of those little black sephora baggies, and it does just fine.
I like this - it is a good matte powder, but the packaging is terrible if you plan on carrying it with you. For less than a dollar more, try Jane pressed powder that comes in a much more portable compact.
I bought this product based on the reviews here and was extremely pleased with it at first, but after a few days of using it, I started getting some pimples on my face (which I have not had that often as an adult). Sometimes I have sensitive skin, so I assume I had an allergic reaction. I tried to find a list of ingredients, but it's not on the product nor are the ingredients listed on the Rimmel or Coty web site pages for this product (Coty is their parent company). So I emailed Coty to ask for the list of ingredients, telling them that I had an allergic reaction, and I have heard nothing yet from them. Customer no service and bad consumer relations. The product says on the back that it is "dermatologist tested," but it does not state non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic. So buyer beware. I saw reviews below from others that have also had pimples/bumps appear after using this. I guess you get what you pay for. I'm going back to Aveda or another powder.
