Even as I sit here writing this review, my Make Up for Ever HD Pressed Powder ($36) (along with my Make Up For Ever Kabuki Brush reviewed HERE) is within arm’s reach. I am always wary of a shiny nose and this pressed powder keeps my fears at bay!
Legions of makeup artists are ardent fans of the Make Up For Ever HD Loose Powder, and the HD Pressed Powder version that Make Up For Ever sent is definitely more travel-friendly. The HD Pressed Powder is a finishing powder with a fabulous texture that mattifies and blurs fine lines and pores. It has a truly unique texture with a slightly looser feel to it than traditional pressed powders, and a silkiness unlike any other pressed powder I have tried.
The powder is talc-free, containing silica,vinyl crosspolymer and micro spherical powders, as well as hyaluronic acid to prevent the skin from getting dehydrated. It definitely provides that ‘soft focus’ finish that HD is known for, just don’t go crazy and put on a ton of it – the universal translucent shade will leave you with a bit of a white cast.While it blurs imperfections it isn’t a noticeable powder on the skin when used correctly.
The HD Pressed Powder feels extremely light and silky on my skin. Every couple of hours I need more around my nose area, and I put some under my eyes to brighten that area a bit. I love how it creates that matte look without flatness…skin looks brighter and refreshed but not shimmery.
I love my Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder and have it with me at all times. Check it out and see if your skin loves it as much as mine does! – Lisa
