I've been using this product for about 3 months now, and only just today did I have to go out to buy another because my first was losing color! Huge points for that. Pros: -will stay as long as I want on my greasy lids (with a primer) if I avoid contact with water--it has stayed on even after I went to bed for the night -love the felt tip applicater. doesn't provided the straightest line, but for the price I can deal with having to quickly run a q-tip over it to smooth the line out Cons: -there aren't many! my only complaint would be that it wears off my around my inner eye after so many hours, but no flakes and it's not very noticeable
I used to use Urban Decay's Translucent Powder until I got too frustrated with the poor quality of the container mixed with the expensive price, so I decided to give this a try since it was 10$ cheaper, and I'm so glad I did! Pros: make my make up stay longer than any other blotting powder I've used -gives a nice matte finish Cons: this is VERY light. My skin always matches the lightest shade of any brand, but next time I purchase this I will be sure to get a shade darker, as the lightest shade doesn't match if I try to layer it on - it can cake up (sides of nose, chin, etc) if too much is applied before you blot with a napkin or something For me, this lasts about 2 hours depending on the day before I have to reapply, but that's okay because the compact is so durable and convenient I can do it anywhere.
