One of Make Up For Ever's best-sellers is their HD Microfinish Loose Powder, and this new release is basically the same product in a pressed version, making it much more user-friendly as it comes in a mirrored compact. One major benefit of this product is that it is talc-free and contains a blend of three innovative ingredients, namely synthetic mica, silicone powders, and silica, meant to diminish the appearance of fine lines and pores. Not only that, but it also contains hyaluronic acid, one of my favourite skin care ingredients, since it keeps the face hydrated and thus prevents the formation of dry patches. The very first time I used this powder paired with my big fluffy face brush, I immediately noticed it smooth out my pores - no kidding, it was like magic right before my eyes! The lightweight finish was also very refreshing since all of the powders I have tried so far have always felt somewhat heavy on my skin.
The HD Pressed Powder is white both in the pan and swatched on the finger, but it blends seamlessly into the skin once applied with a brush. I just love the idea of a universal face powder shade (in case you were wondering, it is in fact designed to work on all skin tones)! Another area where it doesn't disappoint is its lasting power - it really keeps the oils at bay, and I do not need to blot my face throughout the day, which I usually have to do with my other face powders. Furthermore, being finely milled and having a mattifying effect, this powder makes my face look extra flawless not only in person but also on screen thanks to its HD camera-tested formulation.
If you are looking for a powder that will transform your beauty routine, the Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder is exactly what you need! This powder is sold exclusively at Sephora, both in stores and online, as well as at Make Up For Ever boutiques, and retails for C$41.00 for 0.21oz, or 6.5g of product.
