Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

This stuff is great! controls shine pretty well for the price. Doesn't last all day though. Settles in creases under my eyes but besides that it's great. It can look a little chalky but ones set with a setting spray it helps with that. No harm in trying it out!

Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

i bought this product because of its price and i needed a sheer powder. you get what you pay for but its an overall good product. if you are in need of a product like this, i would reccomend it to people with a tight budget like me. it helps cover up shine and i did not need to touch up after 4 hours which is really good for me. the only thing i did not like about is that you could see the white on your face faintly. the reason why i buy transcleucant powders is just for a shine controller and not really coverage. i did not like only because of that and it settles into like easy but a primer will help that. i applied with an elf powder brush over my bare face because i prefer the natural look and it did that just fine. if this was a pricey product i would rate it 2 stars but since it was for what it was, i found that it did the job.

    Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

    I bought this powder on the recommendation of maceyeshadowconsultant.com. It is what it is for a finishing powder. I neither really like or really dislike it. It does the job, but I find that my nose starts looking shiny a few hours after I've applied the product. Maybe I am not using enough, but I have very fair skin, so I don't want to look too white and powdery.

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      I used this to set my foundation and my especially oily t-zone. This is cakey and you can see it the second you put it on. And it just looks worse and more cakey as the oils break through during the day. Gave it a chance for a good two weeks and just... no. In the trash it went.

        I used this to set my white halloween grease makeup and it is amazing. It helped keep my makeup in place and allow me to blend other make-ups with it. It also helped keep my makeup from running.

          Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

          I really like this for my t zone! It keeps it matte for a couple hours but I don't mind touching up. The only con that I notice is that it gives a flashback in photos because it's a clear/ white powder. My guess is that it will make darker skin tones look ashy but I have a light skin tone. Overall, it's worth a try! I really love it compared to my other powders that I have tried!
