I'm a harsh critic when it comes to powders (and well, everything, as long as we're being honest here) But this one has quickly become a favorite, and I already plan on repurchasing. I told this to my mother, and she almost fell over in shock- I NEVER plan on repurchasing a powder, they are never good enough, and I'm always looking for a better one. I'm pretty close to hitting pan on this, and I know that when the time comes, I'm going to be running to the local drugstore and buying another one of these bad boys.
I really hate looking at others reviews sometimes, because when I love a product, and I see negative reviews, it makes me second guess myself. After seeing some of the reviews on this, I really focused on this product for a few days, just to make sure I REALLY love it. Well guess what folks, I do!
I have the shade light, and it's basically perfection in a pan. For everyday looks, I use this to set either Revlon CS, or Revlon CS whipped. This doesn't add coverage, which is great, b/c I always use full coverage foundation. It leaves a semi-matte finish. Because I am oily, I do need to touch up mid-day, but this powder is AMAZING for touch ups, as it refuses to cake up!!! Some would be turned off by the fact that I have to touch up, but when I say "touch up", I don't mean I'm a big oily mess, I'm just a tad oily. No matter what foundation I'm wearing, I'm always going to do some type of touching up, and this powder is amazing for that purpose. I'd go so far as to say this is the best touch up powder I own. All the others will cake up easily. (with the exception of revlon nearly naked. I think you're beginning to see that I really love revlon face products)
I've received many compliments on how pretty my foundation looks when I pair this with Revlon CS. (although most days, I mix a tiny bit of revlon nearly naked, just for a bit of luminosity) Most of the people complimenting me are ladies that rarely pay attention to my makeup, so I take that as a big deal!
I dread the day I hit pan on this, because Lord knows I hate buying boring old face products, but my face just isn't complete without this! I am a firm believer that ladies should spend more time and money on your face, because if the face doesn't look good, your beautiful highlight, lips, or eyes won't matter a bit. With this, I know my face will look beautiful and flawless!!
