This powder is so-so

By RecycledBeauty

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Covers Well

Cons

  • Cakes Up
  • Unnatural Color

Best Uses

  • Normal Skin
  • Oily Skin

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.

            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.

                  I bought it to be the finishing powder on my goth makeup. Very silky smooth and easy to apply.

                  Comments about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder:

                  The first thing that hit me was the lack of applicator... had to find one of my own. The second thing was it looked like there wasn't much in the container. Application was smooth and easy and it blended well and looked natural. Enjoy using this product, but it would be nice if there was more of it and something to apply it with.
