When I first tried it I thought it was just meh. Nothing overly exciting and pressed powders don't really excite me the way loose powders do anyway. I applied it with a sponge puff applicator and it seems to look powdery and uneven on my skin. But then I tried it with my buffing brush (MAC 187) and WOW! When I swirled the brush into the pan, it seemed to turn it into a beautiful, finely-milled powder. It applied to my skin flawlessly. I'm sure using a powder or kabuki brush would have the same effect.I bought this as part of a 'buy one, get one half price' deal at Boots. (Got both foundation and powder for under £15, total bargain). I got the powder in 52 Vanilla which is a good match for my fair, cool-toned skin.The compact itself is round, very slim and fits into the palm of my hand. It's a bright red colour when I'm not overly fussed on. It contains a mirror but no sponge applicator. I'm glad it doesn't come with a sponge applicator because I mightn't have tried applying it with my brush and the compact would be much thicker.

I love this powder so much.. It's so finely milled and looks nice on my dry skin. I use this powder everyday and it last me around a year.. This is my current favorite setting powder! Will buy this again for sure

Simply put - This is so much better than any high-end powder I have used. It's great to chuck in my handbag, and I would be surprised if I bothered to ever try another powder. (If they discontinue this, I will be stockpiling)

The results you get from this powder are amazing! It is super smooth and it doesn't look like you are wearing any powder, it gives you a very natural and smooth finish. I also like that it is yellow toned. Unfortunately it is not so 'healthy' since it contains perfume and other ingredients that are quite bad for your skin.

I had really high hopes for this one! However it just goes on the 'meh' pile... I didnt expect it to have any coverage or control oils, I just wanted it to set everything in place, which it doesn't. It seems to make me oilier! It never happened to me to have to blot my face 3h after I applied my makeup, especially not in the winter! It did cling to my dry patches but thats what happens when you powder dry skin. However I was willing to put up with all that until I noticied some tiny bumps on mu chin. This clogs my pores and its not pretty... Thinking back now that I stopped using it I think it made my skin look so sad and ashy, very dead like, like I was intensily dehydrated or havent slept for days. I like the packaging, I like the claims but the product isnt worth it.

Lovely finish on the skin! Doesnt leave that powdery look and perferct compact packaging. I used to use Charlotte Tilbury's face powder and Kevin Aucoin's loose powder but felt they were tooooo pricey to keep repurchasing. This is as good without the massive price tag!

I wanted to love it. The package was light and slim. When I first applied it with brush, I thought it was worth the rave. The powder was "invisible". It was not super matte so my skin still looked natural. But after a couple hours, it seriously oxidized. My face became oddly earthy! Worse still, the texture became super drying and matte. I needed to take it all off at my office. And I don't have such experience with any other brands.

Honestly one of the WORST products i have ever tried. I have combination oily/dry skin and i saw a few youtubers rave about this so i thought why not.... big mistake. This product broke me out like nothing ever before. I dont have acne prone or particularly sensitive skin but this product made my skin look like i had an actual acne break out. My pores were a mess and i had big painful spots all over my face, my skin had never looked so terrible. My oils seeped through within the first 2-3 hours and it really emphasized and clung to my dry patches. the only pro to this was that it was a perfect colour match for me, as i have olive/golden tones and can barely ever find a foundation that caters to that but other than that it was trash.

I've got oily & acne prone skin, & the only pure reason why I bought this pressed powder was just to keep my T-zones matte/foundation to stay on longer - it broke me out! I realized my skin reacted badly as I started to have tiny whiteheads appearing especially on my cheeks, & I already have mild acne. You can imagine how distressed I was! I'll only recommend it to people who doesn't have oily & acne prone skin. I didn't see the "healthy glow" it so claims just literally "mattify" your makeup. I also realized it made my acne more obvious when my foundation I had on did a perfect job in terms of coverage. I noticed that it did made my face ghost like even after getting the darkest shade I could find at that moment - dark beige - as I have tan Asian skin. In terms of packaging it did not come with any sort of brush, sponge etc but it did come with a mirror as its in the form of compact powder.Overall 4/10 did not impress me one slight bit. I'm selling mine online & getting a new one!! What a waste of money :(

Just hit pan on this one to give a fair review!!! A solid 10. I had been a long-time user of mac mineralise skin finish and I gave a few drugstore powders a shot- from Maybelline to some organic brands, and this one just stands out. I guess the main point of a powder is to let foundation last without caking the face up- and this does the job. It is definitely a long lasting powder that prolonged my foundation wear, even longer than MSF, with a pretty finish.
