This powder has a lot of pros, and a lot of cons. So I will just list them for you.
- Gives great coverage
- I LOVE the little application pillow it comes with
- makes your skin look flawless
- is quick to put on
- Doesn't last long
- Clogs your pores
- Makes your face look very caked
- Looks like you put on a whole container of powder
I probably won't buy this product again, but it depends on your skin type, age, and personal preference.

I have gone through almost the entire compact so far, and I have to say, this stuff is amazing. It gives my face a soft-matte finish and it looks so smooth. It even provides a little extra coverage. One of the best drugstore brand powders I've tried in a long time. I will definitely be repurchasing.

I tried high end pressed powder and it didn't impress me at all. I usually stick to high end products but I have found my HG drugstore pressed powder and i am impressed but how finely milled this powder its. I have combination skin and it worked great on my skin. I use this for setting my foundation, or when im running errands, i use this product alone. The only downside i can think of is the packaging, i wish it was a bit more sleek. Other than that, I really like it! Revlon makes really good face products :)

I love this powder very much! At the moment, my skin is very dry but oily around my noise and forehead, therefore I was looking for a powder that would be suitable to tick both boxes and this does 100% it reduces shine where needed but doesn't cling to dry patches which is pretty impressive! The formula feels silky and soft and is the perfect colour for my skin tone ( very pale) the packaging is very compact and sturdy so good for travel and the mirror inside is very usable. Currently my all time favourite powder and will defiantly repurchase :)

This powder is ok. It has a funny smell to it, I thought it was my brush, but no.. It's the powder. The powder really clings to dry patches which I didn't even know I had. I wouldn't purchase again, nor recommend mostly because of the smell and cakiness. Do not buy. As well as that, the powder doesn't stay matte all day, only about 4 hours at most. My T-Area tends to look oily.

This is a really lovely powder as far as consistency. I don't know if I've ever come across such a finely-milled, silky powder, especially from the drugstore.
But it's still just a powder, and although Revlon claims this will provide coverage, I found it to be very sheer. I personally didn't buy it to wear as foundation but as a setting powder. I didn't like it at first, but once I tried different ways of applying I figured how best to use it.
It comes with what is the absolutely crappiest sponge I've ever seen. Tossed it, grabbed one of those square sponges you can get at the drugstore; problem solved. The problem with using the sponge was that it went through the powder at the speed of light, and hit pan after a couple of weeks. The sponge just picks up too much product, and it wound up making my skin look chalky as well. I switched to one of my Ecotools blush brushes, and that did the job. With only a sheer layer it didn't look powdery our overly matte, but just smoothed out the top of my foundation and blurred my pores. It helped my makeup stay in place and keep it from looking too oily, but it definitely didn't keep it matte all day.
I was definitely torn when picking out a color because I'm between Fair and Light (NW15-20). I went with the Fair, and it's just a tad too light I think, but it's still useable. The problem is the small shade range: only six shades. I wish Revlon would take it's cue from L'Oreal and make a powder with a shade range like True Match. So annoying!
Because I don't use the sponge, the compact is unnecessarily clunky. I wish they'd just skip the sponge altogether. I'm also aware that many people probably prefer the sponge as it's just more convenient to touch up that way. It's just a personal preference. The mirror is a decent size, the closure is sturdy, and the back of the compact doesn't just flop back and forth. So the packaging is about average from drug store. One thing I'll say from Revlon is that I've probably had dozens and dozens of their products over the years and never had a single problem with cracks, breakage, or breakdown of product.
So this is a really beautiful product from Revlon, all in all. I would like to buy this again but I'm not 100% because the Fair is too pale and I'm not sure Light would work for me. If your skin isn't very oily, I'd say give it a shot as a nice setting powder, but if you need a workhorse to keep the oilies at bay, this is not for you.

Meh. Nice idea, but definitely clogs pores. Also, it tends to look muddy after an hour, despite the lightest application. In the trash it goes.

I really want to like this product for a lot of reasons, but I'm currently "meh" about it. We'll see if my opinion changes with more use.
First of all, all that I've heard about it being finely milled and smooth is true. I knew as soon as I swatched it that it felt very HE & different than many of my other powders. So that's what I like most about this product. The finish is also very nice (I use it as a setting powder lightly with a large fluffy brush...when I use the puff for touch ups I have to be careful, as that can apply too much product and look cakey just like any other powder).
The things that keep me from loving the product, though: I bought it in the lightest shade, and it doesn't seem particularly light. I'm not necessarily ghostly, but I am pale with yellow undertones. The lightest shade seems more pinky, which bums me out, but the second lightest shade, which is yellowish, is WAY too dark. It looks closer to medium than light. The other thing I don't like is that it seems to oxidize on my face. I haven't tried it with a primer yet, so maybe that will help, and I'll update if it does.
The packaging is okay. It seems very drugstore, and the mirror is small, which is a bummer, because it seems like a nice product in mediocre packaging. Packaging has never really been a make or break thing for me, though, so it doesn't bother me much.

As with powder you 'll end up blotting at some point of the day so im not knocking this pressef powder for that. But....this is my hg powder. Wow its so natural looking. Its absolutey the best drugstore powder in my opinion. Its lightweight, blends well, great color match, no smell, silky texture...the price a little pricey for a drugstore powder but oh well. Its like 12 or 13 bucks here in texas. But at walgreens they got a buy one get onehalf off. But since its an awesome pressed powder it deserves the price tag. Better than mac powders. Also no breakouts. Try it. Update: I forgot to update that loreal true match beats this one.
