In a photo obsessed world we are constantly snapping and being snapped, and so now more than ever you might find yourself looking for a product that helps your skin get camera ready! To compliment our go-go-go society Make Up Forever just recently launched a pressed powder version of their very popular HD Microfinish loose powder, and I was lucky enough to give it a try!
HD Pressed Powder is a talc-free, silky, lightweight finishing powder that offers the same benefits of HD Microfinish Loose Powder, but in a purse friendly pressed compact. The exclusive formula boasts a combination of three premium powders (silica, vinyl crosspolymer and Micro & Spherical powders) to help soften the appearance of fine lines and pores and create a soft focus effect on the skin. The powder’s second skin effect creates an instantly smooth, slightly mattified finish and most importantly, is comfortable to wear.
HD Pressed Powder is offered in one universal shade and designed to work for every skin tone from light to deep, with sheer flawlessness and perfection. Although the setting powder appears white in the compact, it is completely translucent on the skin and ideal for creating a chalk-free, HD compatible finish.
A little goes a long way. Buff a small amount of HD Pressed Powder into the skin in a downward and outward motion using a super soft brush. This product is intended to be applied as a finishing product, so apply after your regular routine of primer, foundation etc.
What I Like About this Product:
My Skin Looked Great – I honestly noticed a difference in how my makeup was sitting on my face, and I really liked the smooth finish it left, and it wasn’t heavy at all.
Not Chalky – I’ve used other “finishing powders” before they tended to make my face look dull and lifeless. I found that a lot of them had that pancake effect. Do you know what I’m talking about? Where your face almost looks like you’ve been dosed with flour rather than makeup? This product has a great finish and I absolutely love it for my oily skin.
Removes Shine – I have oily and blemish prone skin, and so I always appreciate when a product soaks up some of that extra oil. The last thing you want when you are getting your photo snapped is shiny skin especially around the T zone.
No Fuss – I’m a klutz and so I don’t need any more mess than I would create all on my own!
Convenience – I like that I can pop this in my purse and take it to go with me for instant touch ups! Especially great when photographing for events and/or blog photos!
Staying Power – I start my days before the sun comes up, and so I need my makeup to last as long as I do. I barely get a chance to take lunch break let alone reapply makeup, so I need something with staying power. I’m happy to report that this product successfully survived the work day!
If you are looking for a product to seal the deal for you then this is product for you! Like I mentioned above, I love that you can tote this along with you where ever you need to be, and you’re always camera ready. And bonus is talc free!! It’s perfect for us bloggers! Thanks Makeup Forever! x
