      Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

      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.

      Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

      I like this powder because I found that it covers just as well as any other Covergirl or Maybelline brand seven dollar powder, but it was less than half the price.

        its just amazing. I have fair skin so its hard to find foundation that matches my skin tone at a low price. with this product, I get coverage, shine control and its light weight.

                Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

                I use a powder brush to applu this and it blemds well and gives me a bit more coverage with out looking cakey. It keeps me matte almost all day (oily combo skin). I love that the price is resonable and this stuff wokrs great. I wish this came in more color options though.

                    Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

                    I would love to be able to review the actual product, but seeing as how they didn't provide a powder puff with which to apply the make-up, I couldn't use it until I found my own. Then I had to find a mirror, because there isn't one in the compact. I guess that keeps the cost down, but the inconvenience factor goes way up and I'd rather just spend the extra money on a CoverGirl compact that comes with puff and mirror. Thanks anyway.
