Almay products is the only brand I can use when it comes to foundation and concealer, I get skin irritations from all other products. I love all the products on their line particularly their eyeliner and eye shadow that matches your eye color and makes them pop. It's light natural looking makeup that doesn't look caked on

This is one of my favorite products that I bought when I was in a pinch and have ended up using it ever since. I like that it comes on with lighter layer and you can build it up to however you want it. It also is nice to use even when I dont have any liquid foundation on.

I randomly picked this up when I was I was low on pressed powder, I use pressed powder to set my foundation, to keep it matte and to lock it into place. I did like this product, I have used many different powders to set my foundation and a problem I find is that some of them give my face a muddy look. This didn't give me a muddy look and it sets my foundation into place. This product did everything I needed it to do 😁 I'm always looking for the holy grail product so I will probably try out another pressed powder but if I see this for a good price I would repurchase and I would recommend this product as well.

This is one of my favorite products, and I use it every day. It helps keep my makeup in place, but not necessarily all day. I have combination skin and it holds up well giving me a more natural look. I will continue to buy again and recommend to others.

This is a good first starting pressed powder as it doesn’t have much of a color to it. However, it does stay on longer than most powders I’ve tried. It is affordable and found almost anywhere. I would buy it again.

I'm really impressed with Almay because this powder held up just as well as my Clinique compact which costs a little over twice the price of this one. I am not sure how the whole pigment thing works but my skin tone is beige and between light and medium. I went with the medium because I didn't want to look too pale. It matched very well and I was pretty amazed of how well it blended. It was a nice matte finish and it kept my oily skin at bay. One thing I will say about the design of the compact is that it's counter intuitive. The mirror is with the brush but the mirror should be on the opposite side of the powder because I have to hold it upside down to look in the mirror while I apply and that's annoying because the powder crumbles all over my shirt.

Nothing Special. Sometimes I'll use it to blot but I have way better setting powders that I choose over this! It's an Almay product so it's very easy to find, any Walmart or Drugstore carries it. I do t find that it has good coverage. I don't even know what the purpose of this pressed powder is! lol There's definitely room for improvement & ALOT of. After options out there. This is something I have no desire to repurchase.

I'm not a huge fan of this product. I feel when you apply it to your face and it sets in, it makes your face look darker. I also grabbed the lightest shade they have in this product. Other than that the formula is great and it applies nicely

How well does this work? Does it give a good full coverage, and will it last all day?

Can this be used as a base or do you use it over top of foundation or tinted moisturizer? I just bought it today and I'm not sure what the best way to use it is.
Do u have to pay for a box
