This is my go to powder for heavy coverage. It covers great and looks smooth. My only complaint is that it creates dry splotches on my skin, so I have to carefully moisturize before applying it. Overall, a great powder.
I love how it creates a nice finished look without having to pack it on. It stays on all day and never lets oily skin peek through.
High hopes, fell short
I have heard SUCH good things about the entire line of Smashbox's Photo-products. I had really high hopes that this would help set foundation, control shine and give one more layer of skin-tone evening. It's VERY sheer but does somewhat help with evening tone. Does not seem to help make up meltdowns or shine control. It is a very dense powder and lasts a LONG time. I almost wish I could use it up faster so I could go back to my old product...
I carry this around with me everywhere! This is one that I keep in my bag along with my modelCO lipgloss. It's light and skinny to slip into any smaller pocket in my bags. At home, I use a brush to put it on and outside, I use the little pad that is included in the pack. It is convenient and easy to use. It covers up a lot of my flaws and it is perfect for quick, easy touch ups before meeting friends or in between meetings.
The Smashbox pressed powder goes on smoothly and stays on all day. It covers blemishes and dark spots as well. This is my newest favorite powder!!
I am a licensed cosmetologist and I have sampled a wide range of powders, this is by far the best one for lasting all day, giving you a bright and even finish. Last through my 10 hour work day, Love it
I got this as a present for my friend for Christmas a year ago and she loved it! She used it up really fast. It is great for oily skin like hers and makes the makeup appear flawless and not even there.
It works as well as any other pressed powder. Didn't give me the photofinish it claims... I like other brands better for the price.
For years I used the covergirl pressed powder from the drug store...never again!!. This pressed powder set is amazing! I purchased it actually for my wedding so that I could touch up through out the day and it worked perfectly!. It's light, covers well and it doesn't look cakey. My face gets very oily very quickly and this totally took care of that!. I got my sisters to purchase this powder set too & they both love it too!
Wonderful powder, small quantity
This is a fantastic powder. It's really fine and never gives you an over powdered look. However, there is not a lot of product in the packaging, so if you powder a lot, like I do, you will go through this pretty fast for something that costs $29.
