Review on the pressed powder. After doing my makeup at 530am this morning, going to work and coming home at 530pm I am not so greasy as opposed to when I didn't use it yesterday! After putting it on I did notice a blurr effect also. It is very suddle and can probably only be recognized if you really know your face.

I think I'm going to love this stuff smiles.gif

I did not icon_eek.gif.  To me, the powder has a nutty smell.  I think you need to satisfy your craving for nachos and then smell the powder again.  th_dunno.gif th_roll1.gif

No.  The odor dissipates.  girlhaha.gif

I used the loose today at work.  I was getting really greasy aroun 10 ish and put in on my tzone.  I stayed matte the rest of the day...

Thanks everyone!  I'm glad the smell doesn't linger.  I love peanut butter so I wouldn't find a nutty/peanut butter scent unpleasant.  I have a Mac Sheer Mystery powder which I never use because the smell reminds me of a cheap perfume.  I have bad memories of long bus rides, sat next to old ladies who've bathed in bad perfume, breathing through my mouth and trying not to gag.  sick.gif

I bought the loose powder when I went to Sephora inside JC Penny's and I cannot wait to try it out!

After much mulling it over, I finally ordered the loose powder. Can't wait to get it! The sample I had didn't make me look washed out, so I was willing to invest. :)

I hope you enjoy it!

Tried it in the counter on bare face. Loose on one cheek, pressed on the other.

 

I didn't notice any difference.

 

Also, my face kind of itched - a reaction I always get from NARS base, for some reason.

 

Suffice it to say this is not a product for me.

Oh, the little things in life that make my day. I came back from lunch and wasn't feeling so fly, so I used my pressed powder to soften me up.

A few minutes later my coworker says, "oh, you touched up your makeup, it looks stunning."

I told her how excited I was that she noticed and it was all thanks to my new little powder.

I ordered the loose version last week.  I wanted the ultimate experience and because this is supposed to last all day I went with the jar.  so far I like it.  No white cast.A little powdery during my application but no white cast to speak of --yet.  I use a powder puff to press it in over foundation.  I tried using the sonia kashuk duo fibre brush but it seemed to apply too much product.  That brush may work better with the pressed version. I have not tried buffing it in with a kabuki or mac 109 but I will try it.  When I got a sample from sephora, there was a distinct smell of...cornchips...more like nacho chips.  I hate the smell.  It goes away immediately after application and my puff doesn't even carry the scent after I'm done.  I thought maybe i got a funky contaminated sample...but no.  I still get the smell with my brand new product.  Honestly, this is enough for me to return it however, the performance is pretty damn great.  I've worn this over 4 different foundations and mac PLW concealer.  I always have to blot 2-3 hours into my day and this was no exception. but i didn't have to blot after that.  Between that and no white cast this is pretty much a keeper.

Exactly! Good to know I'm not the only one noticing that. girlhaha.gif

That is a very nice haul and a very lovely picture. In regards to the perspiring problem, I would probably suggest just carrying tissue or blotting paper. I know someone who had the same issue. I think it's just one of those things that you can't make go away, you can just try to minimise its appearance and keep it in check. Sorry I'm not too helpful there. smiles.gif

I should have my mum pick that up before she comes over to visit from the UK.

Miss O, so sorry you had a lousy CS experience but I'm glad you didn't allow it to effect your amazing haul!  Enjoy!  You're very pretty & the red lippy look so awesome.  pretty.gif

Both the pressed and loose powder are wonderful.  Usually I am most fond of loose powders, but with this one, I would get the pressed powder version.  Since it has such a very soft and sheer coverage, i don't have the usual concerns about it building up too much around my oh-so-quickly aging face!  

 

I work at a Sephora in Michigan.  We can barely keep it in stock.  The pressed version goes the fastest.

post #384 of 484

I bought the loose version.. I am excited to try it tomorrow!

post #385 of 484

I picked up the last loose powder at Sephora yesterday. After all the horror stories about how nasty Sephora is I didn't even attempt to try it on my face. LOL. Unfortunately, I washed all of my brushes tonight and then decided I wanted to actually try the powder on. Wahhhhh!!! All my face brushes were wet. Excited to try it out tomorrow. I wonder if I should have gotten the pressed instead of the loose? After traveling this weekend I can see where that would be a bit more handy.
