Inexpensive and Great
I LOVE this product, i have oily skin and this stuff just zaps all the oil away. Covergirl not only has the best mascaras but one of the best face powders :) But like i say in most of my post "drugstore" products are much much more expensive in Australia so thats the only downfall.
Buff Beige 525
I have oily skin normal powders tend to give me breakouts, and don't last as long leaving my face shinny. This oil control pressed powder is great I have used it for years and always end up coming back to it cause it lasts all day, it covers up evenly marks and blemishes like a base but it feels fresh and it looks natural. I live in a hot tropical weather and this powder has proven to be great on a daily base.
I have been using this since I was a teen. Before CG changed their packaging and streamlined their shades I used Toasted Almond. Now I use Tawny which is basically the same as Toasted Almond. The new packaging is cute but I miss the Noxema scent. I love how this powder blends into my skin and provides great coverage even when I don't have on foundation.
At first I was super worried it would break me out
Since I used Covergirl foundation in my middle school years ago, I used to have majoy breakouts, so I never touched any covergirl item ever again. I took a risk and got this with a Target coupon for $2 off, and I got to say it's not that bad, but I hoped it wouldn't make my nose pores so pronounced. For oil control, it does the job, and it doesn't show it's shimmer that's contained in it, so that's good, because I don't want to look like a disco ball:)Also, it smelt like curry mix, or some kind of thai spice, gross....:/
i liked it for a while
I bought this a few months ago. While it did control the oil on my T zone quite well i noticed that i had to reapply it quite frequently during the day so that it lasted. Needless to say with the frequent application i ran out quite quickly and decided that i would try a different powder.
