Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – Perfect Beige 04 *
Ah, Essence, it’s Europe’s biggest beauty brand and one of the most loved by us beauty bloggers and it’s easy to see why!
Affordable prices, plenty of colours to choose from and so much variety on offer!
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – Packaging
Essence has some really lovely products and the packaging for their powders and eyeshadows is quite similar but overall it’s really lovely, neat and has a simplistic feel which I really, really like.
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – Colour
Perfect Beige is the colour I’m reviewing and considering that my skin tone is olive/tanned this actually works perfectly for me.
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – Texture
As you can see in the pictures above, this is a pressed powder but when applied it’s like a loose powder, lightweight and quite lovely on the skin.
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – How to use
In the summer I tend to use lightweight make-up so I opt for BB creams and mineral foundation – lightly dusting my face for even coverage. Once applied I then use the compact powder and just go over my nose, forehead and chin which just sets the make-up in place and helps to control any shine.
Essence Mattifying Compact Powder – Overall
I really like this, I don’t use it all over my face and I wouldn’t use this as a replacement to my mineral foundation, I don’t think there’s enough coverage but when using it as a powder on the typical ‘shine’ spots it works just fine.
