Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

I have naturally oily skin so this powder is amazing. There is poor coverage, so I usually wear it over top of BB creme. It is mattifying and helps reduce the appearance of pores and it is white, so it does not make your skin darker, it blends right in. I have been using it for the past 6 months and I couldn't be happier.

    Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

    I tried it under my foundation and this works well. I do have to apply my foundation a little heavier when I use this as a primer. Initially it hides shine, but after time, as with any other powder, my nose is shining. I felt like it didn't set my make up well and that any amount of touching my face would cause everything to wipe right off. Ultimately, I'm neutral about this product because it didn't stand out to me other than cute packaging.

      Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

      I use this after applying a BB cream by Stila. It is nice and easy to apply but not great as a primer but a finishing product. The powder also is quite a bit lighter than my natural shade so I feel it isn't as natural as I would like.

        Great last step before leaving the house. I usually put it on my face, think and white on my problem areas, and then brush it out. It goes on white but doesn't stay that way.

        tip, it also is great to mattify any lipstick any too faced melted :)

        Absorbs oil very well

        By Olivia

        from San Antonio

        Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

        This powder is great! I am mixed race so I have medium/dark oily skin. This absorbs the oil very well and I use it over the Too Faced BB cream. It's a translucent lightweight powder and it truly looks good with any skin tone. Because of its light color I was a little apprehensive about purchasing it, because I feared it would look like baby powder on my darker skin XD Overall I LOVE this product and I use it everyday!

              I love this product. It is the perfect finishing touch at the end of your make-up régime. It will look a bit powdery right after you apply it, but once it settles for about an hour your skin will have a nice dewy finish to it.

                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.

                    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.
