A Budget Setting Powder For Dry Skin

I'm sure the title says it all! The people over at Essence sent me this goodie bag for entering a nail art competition and Essence Mattifying Compact Powder was inside. Honestly, I'd never tried a setting powder before this 'cause I always thought it would my skin look drier. But I'm so happy I found this magical pan filled with powder!

So, it was last saturday when I used this powder for the first time. I had to attend a long event and dusted this baby on my face whilst not expecting much. I'd didn't emPhasize the dryness on my face, the shade 'soft tan' was a perfect match and actually looked really natural!

I left at 3pm and packed a bag full of makeup 'cause I was sure I'd need touching up. But, boy was I wrong! My makeup, including my blush which always always fades on me, stayed in place when by the time I got home, around 9:30 pm!

The texture of the powder is really smooth, applies flawlessly, doesn't cling to the dry patches on my skin and the shade 'soft tan' matches my skin tone really well. Best of all, makes my makeup last. The compact has 12g of product and sold at PKR 530. A bargain? Absolutely! Never leaving my house without it.

Have you tried this powder from Essence? What was your experience?

  4. My compact is dying so I might get this next :) Use the "Buffing technique" with it. It is awesome especially for photographs. You can find the tutorial on Goss MUA on facebook if you don't know it

  5. My skin is so dry these days. Sounds like a good product.

  6. Sounds really good! With summer approaching I think i need it in my stash,

  7. For the price it looks amazing. Great review :)
