Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder Review & Swatches
Wait, rewind, didn’t wasn’t Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder always available?! Screeching halt…I guess not. Now that I think about it Make Up For Ever was kinda the groundbreaking on HD anything including their popular HD Loose Powder and thinking harder I realized hey, they never did do a HD Pressed Powder only a loose one!
Moral of this story is if you hate the sometimes messy nature of a Loose Powder now Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder is here to make your day a little more happier as it’s less mess, more portable, and still blurs your little imperfections away while setting your makeup!
Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder ($36) is a new finely milled translucent finishing powder. This has a looser consistency with a soft, silky texture that will blur the appearance of fine lines and pores while creating a soft finish on skin that sets makeup for long wear and keeps skin shine free.
HD Powder aka silica powder is a great way to soften your look and give skin a soft focused finish. It’s fairly invisible when applied correctly but be careful as it is easy to over do and therefore create a pasty finish. No one wants to look chalky, no bueno!
I’m actually quite in love with MAC Adjust Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting products at the moment so don’t kill me for saying that although an essential, Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder isn’t exactly groundbreaking.
On the upside is is talc-free and takes the mess out of the loose powder version plus it’s more portable now! And the formula even contains hyaluronic acid (apologies for my dry swatch! My skin is on dry mode this week and no matter how much moisturizer I use my arms are still scaly ugh! Is it Summer yet?)!
If you’re in the market for a good HD Powder, Make Up For Ever is the founding father and a good brand to go with.
Grab this one now at Sephora and Sephora.com.
