Thoughts |
I adore this product. It is so light and is perfect for my everyday wear.This has been a go to product of mine ever since my Covergirl pressed powder hit pan and there was nothing left of it. it gives good coverage alone and can be put over a BB cream without it being to cakey or have too much build up giving you a more polished natural looking finish.

It goes on smooth and is velvety to the touch. It gives you a matte look and that is what I wanted to achieve with this powder. It doesn’t make you have much shine to it too.As the package says it does leave a silky smooth texture and I agree that it has given me more flawless skin when you look at it opposed to having no makeup at all.

I don’t use the sponge it comes with though. It gives too much powder and overwhelms my face. So, instead I use either a kabuki brush or a big fluffy brush from my brush set kit I got a while ago. I like the finish better when I use a brush because I can’t control how much product I get when I use the sponge applicator.

A little thing that I don’t like is that if you sweat a lot it tends to melt and you have to reapply the product. I don’t expect it to be perfect but I would like a little lasting wear in the heat. That is why I had bought the product in the first place. But after applying the powder it does absorb the extra oil making your skin look matte again.

Besides that, I like the coverage and the finish it leaves my skin and I would definitely buy it again when I run out of this.
