    Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

    This product said to use it under your foundation. I got amazing results using it as a finishing powder. It is light so come summer I will have to mix it with a little bronzer. It is very smooth and silky

      Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

      I've used other pore refining powders with great success but when you're on a budget its hard. This is a pricier powder but well worth it. It goes on light, covers well and does what it claims, refines my pores. I put this on in the morning before work and it lasts all day. I might have to touch up once depending on my activity for the day but so far I can't complain.

      I really like using this product, it's a nice finely-milled powder. However, I feel that it is quite easy to get a little heavy-handed with this powder. For the price, I was hoping it would perform better.

        Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

        I've had this product for two days, and I'm officially hooked. I typically use drugstore makeup, but once in a while I will splurge on something if I think it's going to solve a problem or add something great to my routine. Most of the time I'm disappointed, but not this time! I applied this powder under my Maybelline foundation over my sunscreen/moisturizer for the past two days. I have large pores and combination oily/dry skin with acne. This powder made my pores look about 50% smaller and kept my face matte all day long, even through exercise. I was worried that the powder might stick to and highlight my drier areas, or make my face look fuzzy like some powders do - nope. It glided on smoothly over dry areas, and my foundation went on so smoothly. It even made my foundation look more uniform, so you couldn't tell where I may have put on more or less. In addition, if you are not looking for a lot of coverage, you could wear this powder alone for a smooth look and to prevent oiliness. According to the directions, it can also be worn under or over all other products (moisturizer, foundation, etc.) I have nothing bad to say about this powder. I truly feel I've found my miracle product; I will be buying this powder for the rest of my life, or until they stop making it (PLEASE, please don't!)

        Comments about Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder:

        I came across this product by chance and decided to try it out, I looked at various reviews in regards to whether the loose or pressed powder was better. So with other previous reviews I went along with the pressed powder. This product is great. It doesn't even look like make up when you put it on, it leaves your skin looking natural just "better." It smooths out the pores and overall skin on your face. It doesn't eliminate them so if you think you won't see the pores after putting it on it's not true, it just visibly smooths them out. The only problem with this is that if you have had a zit or something and its in the process of healing, aka you have that mark on your face it won't cover it. It's coverage is very sheer for the sole purpose of evening out your skin tone. So you'll need a concealer. I also noticed that once I put it on it is best to put some blush on to bring some color back into your face. I'm on my second compact, it lasts a few months even with daily use. I have normal skin so if you have oily skin you may want to see if you need to reapply it throughout the day.

          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.

              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.

                  Primed & Poreless was created to give a soft focus effect on the skin that can stand up to the harshest lighting. While it was not designed specifically for photography work, those who use it love the way it makes their skin look in real life and on camera!
