I’ve thought that MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Powder for years. A friend with skin like mine (tends to be oily) recommended it and I’ve pretty much used it every day since then. I bought a couple of the mini sized ones from Sephora, but even though they were small, I was never comfortable carrying loose powder in my purse. I used to say, ” I wish MAKE UP FOR EVER made their HD powder in a compact”. Well, the makeup gods were listening, granted my wish, and now the makeup industry’s must-have finishing powder to be applied over foundation or worn alone now for touch ups.
MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Pressed Powder ($41 CAN) is dreamy, amazing and everything I wanted it to be. It blurs imperfections in the skin like blemishes and wrinkles (HELLO), sets makeup, and is excellent at absorbing oil in the t-zone. If you have issues with shine, or melting make up halfway through the day, you have to try the HD Pressed Powder.
I only need a small amount on the brush, and as with the Microfinish Powder, a little goes a long way. It has lasted me “forever” (see what I did there)! I apply it using their luxe kabuki brush (#124 $60), and easily toss it into my American Apparel leather make up bag, which goes in my purse. Boom.
Verdict? Love. You need this.
