    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

      Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

      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.

        Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

        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!

            Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

            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.

              A very good oil controlling powder! Comparable to Urban Decay's De Slick powder and even works better some days at controlling shine/oil. Will definitely purchase again and it's a great price, less than $5!

              Great Powder

              By Kat

              from Kentucky

              Comments about Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder:

              I found its best to use with a very light hand, but other than that controls shine, keeps my face matte for a long period of time, and it's also great for pressing on your lips lightly to make lipsticks appear more matte. Can't beat the price either.

              So underwhelming. Did not keep me matte, just made my skin look weird and ashy. Made my skin feel greasy after a few hours wear. I had to throw it away.
