Cakey. Chalky. Packed on. Whatever floats your boat, those are the results you'll get with this powder. Being i'm in high school and on a budget I've purchased this twice on sale for 4.99 CAD. I would look so cakey and it was disgusting. After finding Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder that you can also get for 4.99 CAD on sale, I will never go back to this one. Also, BOTH times that packaging broke on me. Not worth my money.

I bought this along with the Oil Control Foundation (I got the powder in the color Light Medium). When I applied it just looked cakey, so I had to apply a very thin layer (has a decent amount of coverage). I would get oily about 1-2 hours prior to applying it. When I tried to touch up, it just made it look bad and even more cakey looking. Creases pretty badly when you smile or do any face movements. Also, the packaging broke pretty easily. Not my favorite powder. I have tried it with other foundations as well, with no better results.

so pretty much i love this powder but sadly they DO NOT make my shade.😠 i am medium to olive skin tone so i have a lot of yellow and green undertones so i have tried EVERY single one of there shade i tried CREAMY NATURAL (Way to pink) MEDIUM LIGHT (REALLY DARK LIKE A DARK PINKY ORANGE) WARM BEIGE (Ok warm beige made me look ORANGE LIKE A OOMPA LOOMPA WAY TOOOO DARK) this sadly is the only powder that does what i want it to do but they dont make yellow based powders which makes me mad cause i love it. I gotta try more of there shades to see if i find one that suits my skin color but i doubt i find one😞😣.

Although this is far from my HG pressed powder..I used cover girl way back when..starting in Jr high..I am now 35. Anyway..I ve used it on and off thru out my life..and I recently acquired some more cover girl pressed powder in thr is one-the oil control well as the original one for normal skin that smells like noxzema :-) anyway--as far as shine and oil goes, it works OK...not the best..but it does OK. I find that I can only use like twice during the day or it will start to look cakey..and my oil will breakthrough and start melding weirdly with the powder. So I only use this on a limited, limited basis. If you asked me 20 years ago--i probably would've gave this 6 lippies on everything.. but now I know better so I am unable to give this more then 3 lippies now :-/ good product for the cost tho :-)

It's a pretty impressive powder for the buck you pay. It has a light coverage (rather than sheer) and can be builded well. The applicator is also thick and nicely made.

However I found that this powder clogged my pores and left a chalky film on my face.

If you have oily skin then you might fair better. I have combo and I used the sensitive formula.

I found CG's Advanced Radiance does not clog pores or leave a chalky film. Rather its more natural (while still matte).

My favourite powder! I've been using this ever since Covergirl discontinued their other powder. I find it really does control the oil on my face. It looks nice on my skin and it doesn't look cakey or powdery. I even like the case too, It's cute and it feels secure when it's closed. It's just that it can be a teeny bit hard to open.

I have oily and acne-prone skin and I have this product in buff beige. I apply this to set my makeup 8 am and it doesn't get oily until around 2 pm. But with other pressed powders, I get oily at around 12 pm so I'm satisfied with how long it lasts. This IS a pressed powder but I feel it has as much coverage as a natural-looking powder foundation. One day, I was in a rush in the morning so I put on the usual (pore primer + bb cream) without foundation on top and just applied this pressed powder. I was hanging out with a friend and out of nowhere, she said my skin looked nice and she asked what foundation I used. My bb cream has a REALLY light coverage so I knew it wasn't that. I'm very happy with this product but the only reason why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is because of the packaging. The packaging looks nice and simple but the mirror can't stand up on its own and the clasp on the cap broke easily which no longer allowed me to close it. And I only dropped it on carpet. ONCE. So overall I love this and would recommend this to a friend.

Excellent product!! I have very oily skin especially around my T zone, and with just a small amount of this powder my skin is oil/shine free and super smooth. It doesn't even look like I'm wearing any makeup! Great product for anyone with oily skin, and the price is great too.

I do not like this product. It appears chalky on my skin. I have never had this problem before. Maybe it's because I have dry skin, I'm sure it would do well with oily.
