      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      I have tried numerous brands that claim to control oil...most I have to reapply every couple of hours. But this...this is amazing. I used it after applying my foundation and didn't have to touch up until about 6 hours later. SIX HOURS! I love it!

        Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

        This is good but PLEASE be careful on how much product you use. I was putting this on my T-zone and started with my forehead which looked very white after. I have tan skin and i easily blended it out but this isn't something you can reapply without a mirror. Regardless i mainly bought this to conceal my lips before applying light lip shades or pencils, but it does what it claims and mattify's your skin!

          Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

          I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I normally have mostly dry skin, but the products I am on as prescribed by my derm tend to make my skin a bit oily during the day, which I've never ever had an experience with before. So, I went to ULTA one day for some products and saw this powder. I looked up reviews for it, which obviously were raving about the product. Let me tell you, were they ever right! This powder is a miracle worked. Keeps my skin shine free all day. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS

            Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

            I bought this to compare it with my Rimmel Stay Matte. I love love love this product! First of all, the price is amazing! On top of that, I have very oily skin and this makes me matte but with a natural finish. The only thing I will say is that if you have oilier skin like me, expect to get shiny as the day goes on, but this happens to me with any product. Definitely recommend!

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              I have replaced regular powder with this. Regular powder tended to make me look cakey when applied over midday oiliness but this product just reduces the shine without making me look dried out. Compact doesn't stay closed in my purse though.

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              This powder IS good for shine control however, after a while on the skin it turns pinkish. I have no idea why but my forehead and nose turn a bit pink after a couple of hours and when I blot my skin, the powder shows pink on the tissue.

I have veryyyy oily skin,so this was PERFECT for my! For me if does take away redness too around my noes and acne, which is AWESOME! I dont do anything major at school, but when I do walk home from school,my nose does get alittle oily but not much. Bottom line, this product does exactly what it says!

                Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

                This is a nice mattifying powder. It is a complete dupe of Urban Decay's de-slick powder, plus this one does not have any parabens in it (at least none are mentioned on the label).
                The only iffy thing with these white powders is that it does SLIGHTLY create a white-ish over cast. Not bad, but if you're someone with a darker complexion this will make you look ashy.

                  Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

                  For what it's worth, it sure does control shine! I have oily/combination skin and with this powder I can go around four hours without getting shiny. After the two hour mark, I start getting dewy and then after four hours, my skin starts looking greasy. Nonetheless, it's a fabulous product! It has great coverage, lasts longer than some high-end powders and is not expensive.
