Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

One thing I am constantly on the look out for is a powder that helps keep my oily skin looking less shiny! I have used many different brands that are good, but not quite good enough for me to repurchase. I was kindly sent some products by *Essence and one of them interested me a lot.....

All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder RRP £2.99

I have been using this product daily since Monday so thought I would share my thoughts so far. I was intrigued as to why it was white, most powders come in a variety of shades, but luckily, with me having light skin I always go for the lightest shade anyway, however, I do think it would any skin shade because it is not like talc powder and does not leave any white on your skin or lighten your face, it's light dusting which is mostly translucent. The product is nice to apply onto your skin however there is some product fall out, but not too much for me to not like the product.

I have been applying it in the morning before I leave the house for work and it seems to keep my skin looking matte for a good few hours (4 -5) which I think is very good going for a powder this cheap! I like the compact packaging and the lid clicks well, this may sound stupid but if I had a compact in your bag and it was knocked open it would cause, not only a mess but for me distress, OK, slight exaggeration, but what I am trying to say is the packaging is nice and sturdy and I think it would survive the odd knock without it breaking.

So far I am impressed with this product and I will keep you updated as to whether I would repurchase.

Have you seen or tried this product?
