With just one brushstroke, pores disappear and skin glows with a stunning, soft-focus effect that can stand up to the harshest lighting. Wear the innovative, tried-and-true matte powder under foundation to prime skin, on top of makeup as a setting powder, or alone for a nearly-natural finish.

The pressed formula allows for easy application while still in the Boudoir or on-the-go. Choose which way you'll wear the innovative matte powder: under foundation to prime the skin, on-top of makeup as a setting powder or alone for an in-the-bare smooth finish. Whichever way you choose, you'll still banish the appearance of pores and achieve a stunning, soft-focus effect to combat any harsh lighting.

    Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

    I used to use a cheap, pigmented pressed powder from another brand. Once I got this product, I never went back! It gets rid of oily, shiny patches on the skin as well as minimizes the appearances of pores when used as a primer. I have fair, dry skin, but sometimes I have combination skin, as I get acne on my nose, where my pores are the biggest. I also love using this as a finishing powder overtop my concealer to rid of the shiny undereye look that comes with many concealer products. It has a mattifying appearance which I love. If I could change anything about this product, I would make it have an ingredient to help control acne and oily patches. However, I have face washes and acne treatments for that stuff, so I can deal without it.

      Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

      This powder does not get enough credit or hype. It's an amazing setting powder! This is not meant to be packed in like your regular powders. A little is enough and it should last you months if you use it correctly. Every time I read a review complaining that is too little product for the price I Know they are just caking that powder on like they're trying to bake and wear the bake all day.. Smh. Just got the loose It cosmetics setting powder and so far this one is the clear winner. Don't go with the hype ladies! Do what works for you and try other stuff. NYC powder is also awesome (probably better than the IT one)

      Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

      Works wonderfully! It's not a full coverage powder, so do not expect that. However it controls shine. I do not use a full coverage foundation, I only use BB creams and tinted moisturizers because I have lots of freckles and full coverage does not look well blended with my uneven skin tone. Anyways, this powder does wonderfully in controlling shine all day. Because I used bb creams, it tends to look shiny quickly.

        I have missed this product big time, it was out of stock everywhere I look and then finally it was back in stock at my local Ulta so I purchased. I think they changed the packaging for the product, so happy it is back.

            Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

            It goes on like the cocoa powder foundation but without the color. It sets foundation effectively. My foundation often creases and melts as I have oily skin but I have not noticed that with this powder. It does not change the color of my foundation. I cannot comment on the poreless effect of it as my pores aren't usually an issue. Overall it is a very good powder.

                A:

                Hello... Our Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder looks fabulous on any skin-tone. Minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections Infused with a cocktail of vitamins A, C & E for antioxidant benefits; Mulberry Extract for a brightening effect. I would recommend using a large fluffy powder brush, and starting with a small amount in a circular motion in the center of the face. Using what is left on the brush to blend outward. Also whenever I am working on a photoshoot, I always finish with at least a light application of bronzer on the sides of the face, in the shape of a 3. It warms up the outer edges.
                Thank you

                A:

                Hi Nikki,

                What a great question. It depends on your skin tone, and if you are layering on top of a liquid foundation. It is less likely with our due to the low level of Titanium Dioxide. To prevent flashback with any powder, I recommend one of our Chocolate Soleil Bronzers applied in the shape of a 3 on the side of the face. As well as the center of the neck.

              Can I use this after the Primed and Poreless Face Primer but under my foundation (kind of as a secondary primer I guess)? If I do, will I see more of a difference using both?

                You can use primed and Poreless powder prior to applying your foundation for Oily areas, and should use it to set your foundation after application. Then Follow with your bronzer ,and blush.

                Yes, we often recommend using the Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder over top of the Beauty Balm! It helps to further perfect your complexion plus provides a lasting matte finish. You can sweep onto skin using the puff applicator - we recommend in an outward direction from the cheeks to the jawline, and upward on the forehead.

                This product features a translucent finish and applies colorless. It does not provide coverage like a foundation would, but it can certainly be worn alone for a mattifying, smoothing, soft focus effect. If you're seeking an easy, "no makeup" natural look, a great combination is the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm with the Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder lightly applied over and/or under it:
