    Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

    I tried this as an alternative to Urban Decay De-Slick. It went on okay, but when I touched my face it had a chalky feel to it. Also, if you're not extremely light putting it on, it can give your skin a white-ish look. I never had that problem with Urban Decay, and I prefer the silky feel of the De-slick powder. I'll stick with the higher end because I can afford it, but would consider this as an alternative if I couldn't.

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      I love this product! It mattes my base makeup, smoothes the edges from my blush and bronzer, and gives a flawless complexion. I also think it acts as a "finishing powder" and helps my makeup last through my whole day. It's not a tinted powder but I use this on top of a pressed tinted powder and it does not cake at all.

          Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

          Generally I like to buy from both drugstore makeup brands and higher-end brands, most of my makeup that I use is a mixture of both! Before this I used the Amazing Cosmetics Powder Set which was way worse than this, it made my face cakey and grayish, I wasn't happy with my makeup usually. After I bought this I was soooo happy there was a lot of good reviews so I had pretty high expectations and this definitely met them! Sometimes I use it before my foundation and concealer for the dewy look and sometimes I use it after, both times it works fantastically! Doesn't leave my face cakey, and makes my makeup last longer (Even after playing Ultimate Frisbee for like an hour with friends it still lasted!!!) Also doesn't leave a grey-ish finish! The only problem I would see is the package but it was only $4 so still worth it. I dropped it and it cracked a bit but it's still fine, it doesn't close completely though because a part of it broke off :(

            This works for me to knock down the minor oil/shine I get about halfway through the day. I don't think it could handle truly oily skin, but for my normal/combo skin it does the job for cheap.

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              Love this for touch ups during the day. Mattifies perfectly without looking like you added makeup upon makeup. Doesn't cake up, so far best touch up powder I have used lol and that says a lot.
              I have tried everything. I have very oily skin and even though this is not a magical powder for my skin it works to tone down my shine throughout the day.

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              I bought this to control shine and to tone down sparkly blushes and bronzers. It works great, especially for the price, but multiple applications are needed throughout the day. Also, once I'd used it enough that it was thin in the container, it shattered and was unusable. I'd definitely recommend this though!

              I would have to say that I didnt really ENJOY this product. I took this with me on vacation, and once I got to my hotel it was all cracked up.!! But even before that, I dropped it once, and it started to chip.
              But on the good side, it does set my makeup well but do not/be careful about how much you put on!
