Product Review:

With this cutely packaged pressed powder compact, complete with sponge applicator, Too Faced 
cosmetics offers a “tried-and-true matte powder”. As I have used this powder as a standalone for a more natural look, I prefer it as a setting powder over my favorite foundations. The formula is Paraben and cruelty free which is a bonus to it being made without use of any fragrances or oils. This pressed powder is also offered in a loose form as well, but I love the fact that the pressed version travels so well with no worries about spilling into my cosmetic bag or purse.

With cameras everywhere, and snapping selfies running a-muck, many will love the fact that this powder seems to smooth out any uneven foundation without adding a heavy makeup look or chalky appearance. No need for any filters here as this powder makes your face picture perfect with a translucent and silky airbrushed finish; likely due to the user friendly formula that seems to make fine lines and wrinkles disappear. I found application of the pressed version best with a large foundation brush when applying over my liquid foundation. The results lasted all day when used in combination with any of the foundations I’ve used. The matte finish of this product definitely shows by controlling the appearance of excess natural oiliness that other powders seem to worsen. As this does state it is “poreless” which could be true if you have exceptionally small pores but for most of us this is not the case. This formula is not far off from making these claims as I can say my pores are less noticeable when I use this excellent matte pressed powder.

This is by far one of the BEST products I have purchased all year! Even at $30 I can say that it has been well worth the price and it will continue to be in my bag and on my shelf as a regularly used product.
