Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

Generally I like to buy from both drugstore makeup brands and higher-end brands, most of my makeup that I use is a mixture of both! Before this I used the Amazing Cosmetics Powder Set which was way worse than this, it made my face cakey and grayish, I wasn't happy with my makeup usually. After I bought this I was soooo happy there was a lot of good reviews so I had pretty high expectations and this definitely met them! Sometimes I use it before my foundation and concealer for the dewy look and sometimes I use it after, both times it works fantastically! Doesn't leave my face cakey, and makes my makeup last longer (Even after playing Ultimate Frisbee for like an hour with friends it still lasted!!!) Also doesn't leave a grey-ish finish! The only problem I would see is the package but it was only $4 so still worth it. I dropped it and it cracked a bit but it's still fine, it doesn't close completely though because a part of it broke off :(

    Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

    This works for me to knock down the minor oil/shine I get about halfway through the day. I don't think it could handle truly oily skin, but for my normal/combo skin it does the job for cheap.

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      Love this for touch ups during the day. Mattifies perfectly without looking like you added makeup upon makeup. Doesn't cake up, so far best touch up powder I have used lol and that says a lot.
      I have tried everything. I have very oily skin and even though this is not a magical powder for my skin it works to tone down my shine throughout the day.

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      I bought this to control shine and to tone down sparkly blushes and bronzers. It works great, especially for the price, but multiple applications are needed throughout the day. Also, once I'd used it enough that it was thin in the container, it shattered and was unusable. I'd definitely recommend this though!

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      I would have to say that I didnt really ENJOY this product. I took this with me on vacation, and once I got to my hotel it was all cracked up.!! But even before that, I dropped it once, and it started to chip.
      But on the good side, it does set my makeup well but do not/be careful about how much you put on!

          I have tried numerous brands that claim to control oil...most I have to reapply every couple of hours. But this...this is amazing. I used it after applying my foundation and didn't have to touch up until about 6 hours later. SIX HOURS! I love it!

            This is good but PLEASE be careful on how much product you use. I was putting this on my T-zone and started with my forehead which looked very white after. I have tan skin and i easily blended it out but this isn't something you can reapply without a mirror. Regardless i mainly bought this to conceal my lips before applying light lip shades or pencils, but it does what it claims and mattify's your skin!

              TRY IT

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I normally have mostly dry skin, but the products I am on as prescribed by my derm tend to make my skin a bit oily during the day, which I've never ever had an experience with before. So, I went to ULTA one day for some products and saw this powder. I looked up reviews for it, which obviously were raving about the product. Let me tell you, were they ever right! This powder is a miracle worked. Keeps my skin shine free all day. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS
