I have been a very loyal user of the RCMA Translucent Powder. I’ve been using it for years – I’ve repurchased it a couple of times since I first started using it 5 years ago. I love it, but the only thing I don’t like is that it’s not travel-friendly and it can be quite messy to use.
Enter Essence’s All About Matt! Mattifying powder. I first read about it early last year, but since I was trying to avoid the beauty section of the department store, I wasnt able to get my hands on it until late last year. I was very pleased to see that it was on sale (Php200.00 instead of the usual price of Php269.00). I was happy with my initial swatch – the powder is very finely milled – so I picked up two.
I have been using this for the last two months and I must say, I really like it! It’s perfect for setting under the eyes – it sets the concealer perfectly and stops it from creasing, without looking too dry and cakey. If you know me, I can be pretty an*l with my undereye area so finding a good product for my very dark undereye circles is not an easy feat – this one passes the undereye test with flying colors! It also works really well for mattifying the rest of the face. I don’t like reapplying powder (or retouching, period) and I don’t find myself looking too oily whenever I use this.
Since this is in compact form, it’s more portable than my favorite RCMA Translucent Powder. I was very surprised by how well this worked for me – you can definitely believe the hype you hear/read about this product. It’s very affordable too, and definitely worth every peso!
If you are on the lookout for a good setting powder, definitely check this out!
