Review of Milani Pressed Powder by Lisa1969
I have to say, this product really surprised me. I was in CVS and bought this on a whim. I think I have bought every DS brand pressed powder on the market. It seems I generally like some of them for a week or so, and then they "turn" on me...lol So, I was looking for something I hadn't tried before. What I expected was most likely to hate it, but I figured it was cheap, so I would give it a whirl. I am very happy with it's performance! Throughout the day, I usually need to "powder my nose" at least a few times a day no matter what foundation I use. (I switch quite a bit!) I noticed this really keeps shine at bay for a long time. Also, I bought this in Nude, # 11 and it looks very natural on my skin, even in the horrid flourescent lighting at work. I'm not sure about the "puff" it came with...I didn't even try it - I just used a regular replacement puff - it looked to cheap to use. It does have a somewhat strong smell, but nothing unpleasant and it doesn't bother me. All and all, I really like this powder!
EDIT: I have used this for a couple of weeks or so - since the weather is cold & dry right now, I found it to be a little bit drying, so if you have dry skin, you may want to just keep an eye out for dryness, however I still do like it. I've decided to use something else for the moment but I think this would be great for the warmer more humid months.
