My Take on Essence Mattifying Compact Powder

Compact powders help a lot to set the whole makeup, They bring instant brightness to your face. You will find one in almost every girl’s hand bag! If you’re in hurry and got no time to do your makeup, simply apply some tinted moisturizer/foundation and set it with compact powder.. Tadaa… You’re good to go for the day.

Coming back to the product review  ~  Essence Mattifying Compact Powder actually does the work of “mattifying” my face and gives it a smooth, flawless finish. My face has become really oily these days due to the terrible humid weather (yeah there’s no rain over here) so I was wondering if this compact powder would help me to control the oil,  and it did! The effect lasted for good 5-6 hours on my face.

Texture and Swatch

It doesn’t make my face look chalky/cakey or made up. Blends perfectly, I use a puff (which I had already) to apply it.

What I like about Essence Mattifying Compact Powder –

• Affordable

• Sturdy Packaging, but you have to be careful while storing  it otherwise the lid may get a few scratches. 🙁

• Provides matte finish

• Controls oil for good 5-6 hours

• Doesn’t breakout (I am saying  it after 2 uses)

• The lid closes tightly so you don’t have to worry if you’re carrying it in your bag

• The brand is AGAINST animal testing! 🙂

What I don’t like about Essence Mattifying Compact –

• Doesn’t come with a mirror, neither a puff so you need to carry your own for touch ups. I can compromise with the mirror part (because I use my phone’s front camera!) but I so wish it had a puff so that I didn’t have to carry mine separately.
