Editor's Tip Editor's Tip

This powder is traditionally meant to be used for touch-ups, but we sometimes cheat and use it as foundation (after applying Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer, of course).

Birchbox Breakdown

Sure, most of us may be more concerned with the harsh glare of office lights than the intensity of high-wattage studio bulbs. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want our skin to look as flawless as an on-screen ingénue’s. Smashbox’s velvety pressed powder was designed for makeup artists to use for on-set touchups, but it excels in everyday life, too. Slip the mirrored compact into your makeup bag to always be ready for your close-up.

How to Use

Use the sponge to pick up a light layer of powder and gently pat it on your skin. Build up coverage until you have the desired effect. Use throughout the day as needed.

Smashbox IS Smashing!

What a wonderful product! The Smashbox Photo Set Pressed Powder is a very nice way to finish up your make-up application for the day! It sets everything so that your mascara isn't running down your face. I also like to put a little dusting on my lips before using my lip pencil … it keeps everything in place for a perfect pouty lip! Purchase this product with confidence … you will not be disappointed!

A great powder for coverage

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.

Flawless Skin

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...

in-my-bag everyday

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.
