    I love this product. i sets on my face perfectly and makes me look refreshed

        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.

                  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.

                  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.
