Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light

This is definitely value for money. Works like magic and is suitable for sensitive skin! I'm an NC25 and using this in light. Really love it. The powder is not tooooooo fine so my brush catches them easily. If you're tight on budget and looking for a HG pressed powder, this is it!

Really works well on oil control. I can even use it as an eye lid primer and it works! However, its abit troublesome to apply so many products on my face.
Awesome product! Works like magic for a reasonably price make up base. Mousse like texture makes it easy to go on. Keep my foundation up for at least 10hrs! Downside is that the shelf life as per bottle is only 6 months.

Retails at $30 in Singapore. This is an awesome product! In a hot and humid weather, it keeps my eyeshadow and eye liner up all day! I have really oily eyelids and by using this it really prevents the colour from creasing up. Have recommended it to my friends and all of them are thumbs up for this product!
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Was recommended this as it is a mineral foundation suitable for acne prone skin. However, it did not work well for my acne prone skin. The SA matched the colour for me and i was told i'm a NC25. After applying the foundation, i feel that the yellow tone is too strong and it makes my face really sallow. It doesn't smell nice too. Wouldn't get it again!
The package is hygienic as it comes in a pump bottle. However, I've used this for around 1/4 and its been sitting on my shelf ever since. Personally, i find that the plasticky texture of this make up base is not sensitive skin friendly. And it aggravated my acne. Not value for money in my opinion.

Works averagely. Don't like the packaging as it does not come with a pump. Easily spilled! However, its watery texture makes it easy to glide on the face. Not the best make up base so far...
This goes on really light, feel like you're not wearing any foundation at all but it does give light coverage to buildable medium coverage. A lot of my peers complimented me a natural look, and has a brightening effect as well. Though it doesn't provide a dewy look, it does help people who are looking for a matt effect. It smells really nice as well as like all Chanel products! Doesn't aggrevate my sensitive skin as well. The only bad thing about this is just the packaging. It looks cheap in a plastic container as compare to the glass one. But on the bright side, good for those with butter fingers! 30ml can last me more than 1 year! I used it almost everyday, mon-fri definitely.

This worked rather well on me, it doesn't feel too heavy. The cons side is that it does not cover my lines well. Didn't give me any issues as well, as long as you properly remove it. Doesn't smell funny too. And it lasted me for more than a year! Buy this if you're looking for something light!
First of all, I really don't like the smell of this product. Smells like talcum powder. It really gives you a matt finishing though. Secondly, loose powders are always such a mess. They get all over your dressing table. I've used mine less than 5 times and its still sitting on my desk. But the good thing is that it is usable for 36 months! Go for this if you're a fan of talcum powder!
Pressed Powders -Chanel - Poudre Universelle Compacte

This is an awesome pressed powder! But on the expensive side though. The powder is really very fine! I've used MAC mineralize skinfinish, and its even finer than that! Helps my foundation to last long and i don't have to blot throughout the whole day. The current one that i'm using has hit pan already. Will be getting it again very soon!
