I use this as a bronzer
I bought a dark shade of this powder and use it as a bronzer. It blends incredibly well and it looks great. I love this product for contouring my face, definitely a fantastic powder.
good contour powder
soft, velvet like, non crumbling powder. No fragrance to it. It does not irritate my skin. I though it was going to be a new favorite contour shade for me but it is slightly orangey. I thought since it'd be cool or in other words it'd be more ashy of a color, but I still find it leaning to the orange warm side. I do believe if you wanted to you could use this as a light powder with one sweep into this and all over your face or if you wanted to as well you could build it to be full coverage. I really do like this powder a lot because it is versatile.
Best Drugstore Powder
This is a fantastic powder, especially one from the drugstore or Walmart! Although it's a little pricier than most drugstore powders, it works well. It has a great finish and even offers some decent coverage. It could definitely be used without a liquid foundation underneath, and perhaps just some concealer instead. Concealer + true match powder is something I do on an everyday basis when I don't use heavy foundation. The sponge applicator is great, and the packaging is nice. It has a nice scent and the variety of shades is amazing!!! Sorry, Maybelline--L'oreal wins for their True Match line as opposed to the Fit Me. But I think the L'Oreal company owns Maybelline's company?? haha
Works great with True Match foundation
I like this powder a lot. I do agree that the price seems a BIT high but it is a great powder. It has enough color in it that it adds an extra bit of coverage over the True Match foundation and brings the foundation up a notch. I hate powders with any glitter or sparkles, etc. and there IS a little bit of a "sheen" on this powder but it isn't enough to notice or be obnoxious. Also, because this has decent color and I don't have any big skin problems I sometimes just conceal and then buff this powder all over my face and that is good if I am in a major hurry or am feeling lazy! I do notice that if my t-zone gets oily throughout the day and I put this on it can get cakey, though, just to warn!!
not enough product, for that much money...
So, this is actually a very descent powder... use it wet, for a more foundation like coverage - yes, you can do that with this product. the smell isn't bad either.
The only dislike i have about this, is that the amount of product is to little, compared to the size of the packaging... i would like more product for that amount of money.. that might just be me..
I have these in a few different shades. One is too light, and the other is a big too dark. I use these more as a powder to go over my foundation to make lighten or darken what I'm already wearing. I like it because it doesnt' break me out, but it's something I could definitely live without. It does look a bit cakey at time around dry spots. And it also rubs off when you touch it with something.
Great with true match foundation!
I purchased this when I purchased the true match foundation. I've never had a problem with this powder looking cake-like, but I also try to use as minimal amount of product as I can. I don't use it every day, but it is a pretty good price, so if you are looking for a cheap powder you should check this out!
Watch out for looking cakey
Had this powder more than a year but I think the color is a bit to pink on me with warm undertones. I tried it first in Sweden during winter NC37, it would just not work, I thought I was too pale. But now I'm NC40 and it's still just a tad too pink on me. It does have a very silky,smooth texture which I love..but also an obvious smell. My face doesn't like its products to be strong fragranced so this turned me off a bit. Coverage is quite good I must say, but If you put to much on it will look cakey I promise. So use with care if you try it. It mattifies the oil in your face at first, but not for long, requires many touch ups. Packaging is bleeeh!
My friend purchased this a few months ago and despised it. When she put it on, it looked pink on her face and there was a very noticeable line on her face/neck. It did not blend at all, and her skin tone was very close to the color it looked like before putting it on. So i figured, maybe its just her skin tone. She let me use it, and it looked the exact same. I'll be sticking with my Maybelline Fit Me for my drugstore makeup!
I love, love, love this powder! It truly does blend to match your skin to perfection. I use it alone and I have also used it to set my Maybeline Liquid Dream Mousse. It is very light and perfect for someone who wants to wear foundation but doesn't want a caked up look. The colors are great and the Classic tan is perfect for me. I highly recommend this product.
