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.

            This compact powder is great. It sets my foundation and keeps oil away. Also, a great price, what more could you ask for!

                I have Fair skin and this product worked really well as a setting powder for my foundation. It was not long lasting, but it's also less than $4. So definitely worth the price.

                Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

                Wow. What a pleasant surprise! I bought this on a whim at Ulta like 2 months ago... I had a few dollars left on a gift card and was in a desperate need of some mattifying powder. Honestly, I didn't have high hopes for this product but, upon concealing some blemishes (ahem... the dreaded acne) with my foundation I decided to brush a light layer of this on top in an attempt to look matte all day. I usually have the foundation oxidation problem but this stuff pretty much eliminated it! If you've got a few bucks left on a gift card and don't want to spend extra cash on a higher-end product give this one a try!

                  I originally got the IT cosmetics version and couldn't find the right shade. This worked much better. Doesnt throw excess powder everywhere either.

                      The color was a little off for me (too orange) and while Essence is normally an awesome deal, there are other drugstore powders in the same price range that work better (e.g. Rimmel stay matte, Maybelline dream). I don't use it much.
