          Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

          I bought this after seeing this recommended from a beauty vlogger on youtube. I have combination skin and live in hot & humid Florida. I put this on after applying my Revlon Colorstay foundation for combo/oily skin and LAGirl pro concealer. Sets everything very well and controls my oiliness all day (I'm a nurse and am on my feet at work for 12+ hours). I was so surprised it lasts through the work day! It also doesn't leave a white cast to my skin, even when photographed. The only "big brand" powder I've ever tried is the Laura Mercier smooth finish foundation powder and I think this does a better job of controlling shine. Great powder and I'll continue to buy this when I run out!

            I have really oily skin so I tried it on top of my concealer and it made it last all day without getting oily. It's great and really inexpensive

            For the price, this is a good powder. I have tried better ones, but if price is an issue, this one will probably do. You can't use a lot or you are going to look weird. If you only get a bit oily throughout the day, use this, if you tend to get really oily, this is not the powder for you.

              My favorite YouTube makeup vlogger did a review on this product and loved it, so of course I ran out and got it! It is very very inexpensive, does not have a weird smell, is very easy to apply, a little goes a long way, and it controls shine in my oily areas but does not settle in my little wrinkles that I'm sure no one even notices I have. I would totally recommend this product! I'm thinking stocking stuffers!!

                  This is a great powder to touch up with, does not cake up even with a few layers. There is absolutely no white cast. I love this!

                  Works nicely, set my makeup well, my makeup lasted all day and remained matte. It does feel very silky and soft. The only problem is that I wouldn't really call it translucent, it does sort of have a white look to it. If I sort of buff it on, it doesn't look white any more, but it does lighten my face significantly, and I find myself applying more blush because it doesn't look like I have any on any more.

                  This product is ok. I have been using it to set my under eyes. It doesnt cake up or crease and has a good price point. However I only gave it a 3 because I think it is causing me to break out.
