am i crazy? i have this in FAIR( i wear ivory in the liquid), and it literally has no coverage. like, i can pack this on with a sponge and not even tone down freckles. it's ONLY purpose for me is as a mattifying powder, and even then it weirdly only works over the colorstay liquid- on others it gets gross in the corners of my nose/nasolabial folds. maybe because it's the lightest colour it doesnt cover at all? i really wanted a matte pale powder foundation, and this totally isnt it :(
Just okay for me. Looked cakey and dry on my combo skin. I applied with the sponge provided and a large blush. Cover girl pressed powder way better, That's still my favorite drug store pressed powder.
I just down right hate it. Wayy too cake-y and it's impossible to get the right shade. The powder-puff included makes it even worse. Going Au-natural is better then having this powder-y cake-y insane-ly fake foundation on.
this is my favorite pressed powder for sure. i use this usually as a finishin powder. its not to cakey and it has just enough coverage. also, the good thing is that it doesn't dry my skin out make me look dry and cakey like most powders do. i use to use the mac pressed powder but i decided that it was too pricey and it wasnt really workin for me. so now, im using this powder and i buy back ups whenever they have sales or bargains. also, everything else on the colorstay line is worth a try.
At first I liked this powder, then a few months later I looked at my face closely after applying. Eeek. It looked too powdery, too pink, and really stuck to my skin even after I desperately tried to wipe it off with a tissue. It also sank into my relatively fine lines, exaggerating them. The color range is also very narrow, I'm an NC15-20 and light is too light, and the next shade down looked too dark to work for me. It also broke into a million bits after minor jostling (I carry it in my purse). Won't buy again. The only plus was the slim, plain compact.
This product is not the best that i have used. It works well , if its used with Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation, for me at least.
sometimes if you just want to apply the powder without any foundation, it doesn really serve the purpose of making you look lighter and fresh. instead it makes your face look all powdery. To avoid this , i do not use the sponge that came with it, instead i use the big fat powdery brush ,in this way ill be able to dab off the excess powder off my brush.
This powder does give a good coverage, but at the expense of looking all cakey. It however does last for 6-8 hours.
this is my go to powder and absolutely love it. i think you know you love it when you buy back ups! great coverage, lasts a very long time and does not transfer or get oily! the packaging is similar to MAC's and i love it! the price is affordable and goes great with the Revlon CS (if you buy it at cvs, you get one get one 1/2 off!) This is my ultimate favorite powder out of any drugstore brand!
I use this powder as a setting powder over my Estee Lauder Double Wear. It's important to apply it lightly. The powder alone does not give me enough coverage. I use it over the Double Wear because I don't like the Revlon ColorStay foundation. This powder makes a good setting powder when applied lightly with a big fluffy brush.
I actually love this product, but then again, I like the look of of a matte finish on my skin. I bought this last summer because I was looking for a change from liquid foundation, which just cakes up and slides off in the south Texas heat, which can hover above 100F for days on end and really clogs up my skin and breaks me out, no matter what brand I use.
At first I used the puff that comes with the product. Don't do that, that makes you look like you have a pound and a half of talcum powder on your face. What I do now is I use my Estee Lauder brushes to apply. I use the concealer brush to dab a bunch under my eyes (I have dark dark circles no matter how much rest I get) and then my foundation brush to apply to my entire face. You have to blend really well, as it can cake up on you. But if you use good brushes and blend well, it leaves a soft, flawless finish that lasts quite awhile, even in the most hot and humid environments. And it actually works wonders as a concealer! I hadn't worn makeup in awhile, and I bought a compact for this summer last week and after I applied it the other day I walked into the bathroom and was actually shocked for a minute at how great my face looked! This is my new HG for summer all-over coverage.
if you use the puff that it comes with, you get the worst finish. i use powder brush for this and get the flawless finish that last really long. i have to give 4 stars b/c of this.
