    Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

    I have described myself as a budget buyer because generally I am. I hate paying full price for anything, and I usually cannot stomach purchase any makeup item that is over $10. HOWEVER, much of that comes from the fact that in order to get to an Ulta (or anywhere that sells prestige cosmetics, for that matter) I would have to drive an hour or more and I just could never justify purchasing a $30 setting powder. BUT, and Ulta just opened literally 5 minutes from my house and I decided I would treat myself to some prestige cosmetics, at least just to try them. Holy moly. I may become a brand buyer now.

    Now on to my review. I purchased this product after reading reviews and watching reviews on YouTube. I have extremely oily skin. I don't get a lot of break outs, but I usually have to reapply powder 2-3 per day, especially when I am working. I have not been able to find ANYTHING that keeps me from looking disgustingly shiny, until I tried this. I admit, I have only used it twice, but I can already tell that it is doing its job. I wore it over my makeup to an outdoor event just yesterday and when I got home, I did NOT have a grease slick for a face. What I like about this product is that it does illuminate my face, but without a greasy look. Usually when I apply a mattifying powder, I am MATTE...which yes, I understand is the point. What I mean is that my face looks flat and lacks dimension, even with highlighting & contouring. This product gives me a subtle glow without amplifying the oily look. It feels wonderful on my skin and gives it a soft, silky texture. I will definitely purchase this again, even if it the price remains the same or goes up. This has completely changed my outlook on oily skin and makeup. It is TOTALLY worth the money.

        Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

        I have always worn powder over my foundation to set it. Now as I get older, my pores are very visible now. Pressed powders work better than loose powders for me (as far as oily looking during the day and lasting longer). This pressed powder minimizes the look of pores better than anything I can find (including the Tarte smooth operator) and gives you some coverage that lasts throughout the day. It is pricey, but to me it's worth looking better.

          I use this to make sure my eye shadow doesn't rise up and I use it all over my face as a finishing powder. Works fabulously as both!

            Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

            I use this powder over a little concealer and my face looks flawless and airbrushed. No other powder or foundation has ever given me a result this nice. The powder is extremely light and silky and does exactly what it says - blurs fine lines and imperfections. I have tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders and Nars Light Reflecting pressed powder and neither hold a candle to this powder. I have both the pressed and loose Primed and Poreless powders and find the pressed powder is less messy and provides more coverage, but the loose powder is still great.

            I bought this one instead of the loose powder because I didn't want to deal with the mess. Well...the darn thing crumbled and fell apart in my purse! I didn't even drop it. Just the daily tossing in my bag was enough to break the powder. Opt for the loose powder instead.

                      Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

                      I have FINALLY found the perfect touch-up powder. I have extremely oily skin and I have kept a pressed powder compact in my purse or in my school bag since I was in high school. I had resigned myself to using drug-store compacts that only lasted an hour or so and deposited too much color on my face, ruining the makeup that I applied in the morning. No more! This powder is so velvety soft and silky, not chalky, and applies beautifully with a kabuki brush. I work retail and I like to look presentable for my customers, and this powder has been nothing short of amazing. It absorbs all my mid-day oil without making my face look ruddy or like I just tossed baby powder all over myself. Also, the application lasts a long time without settling into my pores. Thank you, Too Faced--love this product!

                      This product was recommended to me by a sales rep at Ulta and I could not be any happier. I have oily skin in my T-zone and my face tends to get oily throughout the day. This pressed powder takes away the oily look immediately and makes my makeup look freshly done! It goes on a little white, but with a little blending it blends super well!!!!
