This is my favourite pressed powder. I've been using it since 2005. I like to try new products; I've bought a $85 powder, but I always come back to this $6 powder. It gets rid of oil and keeps my...

I recently bought this to replace my Rimmel London pressed powder because I felt like it was clogging my pores. I really like the coverage and it seems to stay put. I also like how it is...

I reviewed this a few weeks ago thinking that I liked it - WRONG. Still can't get over the calamine lotion smell, but that's not even the issue. This stuff is SO PATCHY on my skin! I thought it...

I don't know if I just held onto it for too long, but it really accentuates the dry patches of my skin and oxidises. The packaging did hold up for the ~2 years I had it though.

I put this over the matching foundation. This powder does not do much on its own. Not very good coverage and is slightly chalky. But, over the clean foundation this works like a dream! They have...

This is a go to powder for a lot of women over the years. It's not a powder that promises to do special tricks. It's a no frills basic translucent powder that provides a clean,fresh finish. Not...

I would buy this again. Very smooth to apply. You could put it after foundation for last long foundation. Very cheap too. You could only get this only at 5$ I think.

I like this paired with the "Normal Skin" foundation. I just want shine control and a sheer matte finish, because I have a very oily nose and forehead (upper t-zone I guess). This is very...

I usually just use a bit of powder in my shiny/oily t-zone and some blush, since I break out so easily, and this is probably the most natural looking powder I have ever used. I am fair, with...

I keep one of these in my desk drawer at work for touch-ups, and love it for that. They're very inexpensive that I buy several at a time so I never run out. I am NW15 and I use the color Ivory. The...

I am one of those people who fit into the "I love the classic cover girl smell" category. That is honestly the only reason I bought this powder (weird, I know). I bought the shade buff beige that...

I've been using this powder for a while and I use it for setting my makeup and to avoid oiliness. It honestly doesn't prevent oil on my face and it doesn't really set my makeup either.
