First up, the packaging.. swish! Don’t you love when powders are moulded with impressions like this? I really do.. unfortunately the POWder is long gone now but it was a very cute initial novelty. There’s a large mirror and a small powder ‘puff’ in the compact though I would choose to apply with a brush. The idea (as I’m sure you’ve guessed) is to mattify the skin and it does do that, as with most products of this type I find that it goes on very powdery  at first but within an hour the excess has absorbed my first wave of oil and it looks fine by the time I get to work. Because of this I wouldn’t suggest you use this or any oil control powder as your touch up.. I use something much more finely milled such as the Revlon Nearly Naked, it looks more natural immediately and I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be sitting at my desk looking cakey. That being said it does a good job of keeping my skin shine free for the first chunk of the day (I’d say 5/6 hours)

The only problem I have with this product is that it’s £12.00 BUT Seventeen’s Miracle Matte (which I’ve used for more than a year prior to this one) is only £3.99 and does a better job (in my opinion) of controling my oil. The packaging isn’t quite so pretty but as I said, I don’t use this to touch up anyway so nobody but me will see it – just an FYI as I wil go back to the Seventeen version after this runs out.
