Prime Focus Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed
was sceptical but now converted
I've always used Mac powder on top of Mac liquid foundation but found the powders sometimes made me too pale or dark. This doesn't add any colour but sets my make up perfectly. I have used it on its own, just over moisturiser, for days when full make up not needed and it looks like I haven't got any on but my skin tone is even. A new favourite in my makeup bag.
Good for oily skin
I have had oil slick skin since puberty. Now in my late 40's it shows no sign of changing. Believe me, I have tried everything over the years to keep the shiny look at bay with little success. Within half an hour of applying powder over my foundation, the shine starts to break through. Believe me, it's such a look. Oh what would I give for dry skin that feels tight after washing. Anyhoo, although not perfect, this finishing powder does go some way to extending the time the dreaded shine breaks through. Agreed at this price it would be nice to have an application pad included and you really have to look in natural light to make sure you haven't overdone it as it can have a tendency to look chalky. If anyone though has any thoughts about when this oily skin is going to dry up (age 60? 70?) i'd love to hear if I have a small chance of looking vaguely normal in my latter years. Sigh.
Pressed finishing powder
This is one of the best finishing powders on the market. Love it.
Great product, just not enough!
I love this product! I got it for Christmas, and it is fantastic. I've been using it everyday and it makes my skin matte and smooth. The only downfall is there really isn't enough of it, i've panned it already which is a shame, especially for the price.
Love this powder so much! Couldn't do without it now. Finishes off make up perfectly and lasts all day with no shiney bits :)
Good product but ....
Pros - good for shiny face, good value for money- only use a little bit or will go a bit cakey, comes with little mirror inside pot, does help set your make up.
Cons - Doesnt come with applicator, can make skin look a little ashy ( especially if you use too much) needs topping up every few hours.
Love this product
I suffer from shininess on my face especially after a few hours of applying make up! I use this product on a daily basis to take away that shine & bring back the matt just applied look :-) !! considering i use it so much it does tend to last a while too !! Definitley a must buy !!
Love this powder
I use this to set my makeup, but mainly I wanted it for underneath my eyes to stop my eyeliner dropping- it works great.
