Perfect Pressed Powders-My Top High End and Top Drugstore Powders

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Powder

What It Says on The Box

8 hour staying power. Flawless all day.
This worry-free powder makeup stays fresh, looks natural and won’t change colour, even through nonstop activity.
Glides on silky smooth, stays on comfortably, without feeling dry. Oil-absorbing.
For a continuously flawless look, without touch-ups.

In My Opinion:

Completely agree we the description on the box. This is the perfect powder. It’s light and feels great on the skin. It helps to make foundation look flawless. It doesn’t feel dry or stick to dry patches which is great as there is nothing worse! The packaging is great. It has a mirror and a separate compartment for the applicator sponge. This makes it great for popping in your bag and using for touch ups on the go.

If you like the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation you will love this product too. They are the perfect combination.

Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

What It Says on the Box:

A one-step application of foundation and powder. Gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full-coverage finish. Long-wearing: lasts for up to eight hours. A real all-in-one. The choice of pros, and a long time favourite of M∙A∙C fans.

In My Opinion:

I know a lot of people complain about this being used as a powder but I think this gives me the most flawless-matte coverage. It’s extremely long lasting and when I use this powder over my foundation I don’t usually need any touch ups throughout the day. Like all MAC products there is great colour selection so there is something to suit everyone.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder 

What It Says on the Pack:

Up to 5 hours natural shine control with natural minerals. Helps minimise the appearance of pores. Dermatologically tested.

It’s available in 4 shades.

In My Opinion:

This powder is a great cheap alternative to the higher end products I’ve just mentioned. It helps to create a flawless finish to foundation. It is lightweight and feels nice on the skin. If I had to buy any drugstore powder this would be the one.

The downside is the packaging as it doesn’t last well in your handbag. I have smashed so many of these just because the lid tends to pop off. The other products I’ve mentioned today have an applicator too.

Overall I think this is a great product and the cheapest I have found that I really like. It’s a product I will always have in my make up collection.

Max Factor Creme Puff Powder 

What It Says on the Pack:

Crème Puff Powder Compact is a versatile, all-in-one compact powder for any occasion.Amazing light reflecting particles give a soft, subtle glow. Proven skin compatibility, so is good for all skin types. Use alone with moisturiser or on top of foundation.

In My Opinion:

This product is a great alternative to the higher end products also. This one also comes in 4 shades. It provides a great long lasting full coverage for those who love a matte look. If you don’t like a matte look this product will not be for you. The coverage is intense!

I love the packaging. The product is well protected when put in your bag. There is no mirror but there is an applicator sponge which I love. It is super soft.
