Essence All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder REVIEW

Essence is my favorite drugstore brand. Unfortunately In India, we can only get access to a limited set of products from them. I’ve been trying this Matte fixing compact for about a month now and trust me, it does wonders!


INGREDIENTS:

Talc, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Saphire Powder, Aqua (Water), Magnesium Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.  

PRICE: Rs. 349 for 8g  

PACKAGING:

The packaging is quite simple but yet very sturdy. But it does lack a mirror. You can see the translucent setting powder since the lid is transparent.

COVERAGE AND CONSISTENCY:

The setting powder is in a compact form. It is very soft and buttery and instantly mattifies your skin. Since it is a translucent powder so it has no coverage but it can set your makeup in place very well.  It is very light in weight. All you need is a very small amount and you are done.

SWATCHES:

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This is the BEST SETTING POWDER under Rs.500! It sets your makeup, mattifies it and keeps your face shine-free for at least 4 hours after which you might require retouching. It absorbs all the oils instantly and I’ve used it to set my under-eyes in place and damn! it does reduce the creasing.  

It is very blend-able and gives a silky finish.   But it might leave a white cast on darker skinned ladies.   The best part is that it is the direct dupe for NYX HD Finishing powder! The ingredients are the same as well.  

PROS:

  • Long-lasting
  • Instantly Mattifies your skin
  • Affordable
  • Super lightweight
  • Translucent
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Good for setting under-eyes 
  • very Blendable
  • Dupe of Nyx HD Finishing Powder

CONS:

  • Might not suit darker skinned ladies

RATINGS: 4.5/5
