Today I want to review the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder. I have used this powder before in the loose powder version. Although I loved the powder I wasn't sure if I would repurchase it because loose powder is just so inconvenient, it gets very messy if you are not careful. So when Too Faced released the powder in a pressed form I decided to purchase it once I ran out of my old one.
"A pressed powder that turns any foundation into high definition makeup. This silky, translucent finishing veil adjusts to any skintone while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. The weightless formulation can be worn alone or under and over foundation to prep skin, lock down makeup, and control shine for a complexion smoothing, flawless finish. High-resolution, reflective powder technology transforms skin by visually minimizing pores, fine lines, and imperfections for an airbrushed-looking finish."
Too Faced product will usually come in cute packaging. This one is no exception.

Price♥♥♡♡♡ I got it at Sephora for $30. It's certainly a bit expensive, but I'm a huge believer in "you get what you pay for". In the long run I get my money's worth.
Formula♥♥♥♡♡ So this powder only comes in one shade, which is translucent. It can be used as a primer, and as a setting powder. Personally I prefer it as a setting powder because it controls oil very well, sure I get a little shiny during the day, but it's nothing a blotting paper can't fix. Love that it makes my pores look smaller. I don't like it too much as primer because feel like it makes my skin feel a little dry.

Overall♥♥♥♥♡ I do recommend this product for anyone who has normal to dry skin. It might now control oil too well for people who have oily skin. I would repurchase this product. I'm happy because the powder is the exact same as the one in the loose form, and doesn't give my skin that ashy look most translucent powders give.
