    Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

    I've used a ton of powders trying to find the best for setting concealer and/or foundation. This doesn't settle into creases and doesn't change the color of your foundation. It stays put all day and is perfect for touch-ups. It's hard to justify paying more $$ for any other powder when this is 100% effective and does the same thing!! Essence continues to impress me.

    Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

    I really want to love this product, because it does mattify very well and lasts a long time. However, it did break me out and clog my pores and I never break out. It gave my cystic acne after 2 days of use. Also, eventhough it's supposed translucent my face looked super white

        Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

        I just needed this powder to set my liquid foundation. I know some people will say not to use both but that's just my personal preference. For the price of this stuff, you can't beat it. It isn't going to give foundation coverage in my opinion, but if you just want something Robert your makeup with or to keep in your purse to touch up, this is perfect! Only down side is it does kick up powder so you need to be sure to tap your brush first.

              This product is great for finishing up after applying makeup. It feels nice and covers evenly. The price on Essence products can't be beat. It's a European brand so they aren't full of toxic chemicals like those made in the US. I pitched all my US made makeup and I'm just using this brand.

              Nice powder, but make sure you have a brush or wedge.

                Purchased for my sister, got it home and unlike most powders that come with a applicator, this one did not. That is my only complaint.

                Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

                I decided to try something a little cheaper since I usually always buy high priced makeup. And this powder is really nice! It covers well and does the job! The only negative is that it doesn't last all day, but for the price this isn't a big deal.
