Product Review: Essence Mattifying Compact Powder

Hi Guys!
I’m back with a powder review!

Today its the
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder

So without further ado
Here are the pictures as usual:


The case is a sturdy plastic compact

I have this in the shade 07 Translucent

Very translucent indeed

Now onto the review:

The powder does not have a smell to it
I don’t think there is any fragrance in it
Which is GOOD!

The texture of the powder is quite fine
I don’t feel any gritiness when applying and swatching it

There is one thing that annoys me about this powder

See the dots that are on it?
The powder tend to do that!

But it isn’t a really big issue for me anyway
The powder still works just fine!

This powder contains Talc and Mineral Oil
Which I know a lot of you stay away from at all costs

I did not experience any problems with it
It seems that my skin is fine with this product

I usually use this product for touch ups and setting my makeup

Here are some pictures of me wearing it:


This is when I applied my BB Cream (Skin79)
I set it with the powder


This is after 4 hours

As you can see
There is only a little bit of shine on my face
So the oil control properties on this is quite good!
Considering how oily my skin can get!

So conclusion:

Texture 4/5
Smell 5/5 NO SMELL
Oil control 3/5
Colour 3/5 Its translucent

So do I recommend this?

If you’re sensitive towards Talc and Mineral Oil then abstain away from this!
If you’re not and you have skin like mine, why not try it out?
You may like it like I do!

That’s all for today!
