Great product Benefit!
Another great product by Benefit! The perfect hand bag essential for blotting out and concealing my mid afternoon oil slick without being too pigmented or too heavy. It's light in both weight and colour with a perfect application sponge that can be washed, which I do every few days to remove oil build up and bacteria going back on my face.

My lifesaver indeed for oily skin.
I have oily skin and it his has help cover that imperfection of mine. It's lightweight and does not look powdery when applied on. I usually use a sponge, sometime with a brush if I do carry it around. I would say it lasted for 4 hours until I pack on more. I've used other brands and in an hour or 2 i have to reapply and it feels heavy and I start looking cakey.

It does the job! I have combination to oily skin and it works wonders. I use it to set my foundation with a big fluffy brush, and it literally lasts all day. At the end of the day, my makeup is still on my face, and most of my face stay matte except my t-zone, which gets a bit oily (but that's expected).

Less is More!
This pressed powder is really evident and powdery when you use a lot (which I like to do). The sponge that came with the powder picks up alot of the product and no matter how much you try to move it around it seems to just make it look dusty, you can rub the excess off it's crazy.
I use a powder brush and really shake off the access and in circular motions apply this powder which looks okay but nothing amazing. It seemed to dry my skin out a bit as well.

I rarely use pressed powder, I was talked into getting this from the Benefit counter staff...
at first I didn't like it; it has a yellow tinge and I felt a bit washed out... however it has grown on me now and is great to touch up the face before going out, it stops the oily T zone in it's tracks!!
probably won't buy it again (like I said I'm not big on powders) but when I need a pressed powder it works a treat!

It's okay but...
I started off really liking this but then as I used it with the sponge provided it went all cakey in the compact. I have really oily skin and find the Lancome Mattifying powder works better for me.
If you have normal or slightly oily it will probably be fine, I recommend using a brush to apply this.

This foundation compact saved my life in the UK! perfect coverage, lasted ages. I was so sad when it all finished up and realised just how much it cost here in australia! benefit is quite a cheap brand in the uk so haven't bought any more of the range since returning here which is a shame.
