Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Pressed Powder

Make Up For Ever's HD powder is now available in a pressed powder formula! How awesome is that? You can now bring it with you for touch ups during the day! Suitable for all skin types, this powder is formulated with hyaluronic acid to help prevent skin dehydration.

This new powder is sooooo silky and light on the skin, and it still look translucent even if you swatch it heavily. It disappear on the skin completely leaving a flawless finish that isn't shimmery or luminous at all. Please note that it doesn't add any coverage.

It doesn't keep my skin matte all day (nothing does, sadly), but I would say that the pressed powder is a bit more matifying than the original. It reduce shine, adds a soft-focus effect, and helps to blur fine lines and pores. 

One thing I really like is that the powder isn't flying all over the place like the original HD powder. So I found that it was easier to apply under my eyes to set my concealer, or dust it over my foundation, without breathing it or getting some in my eyes!

While you would think that this is simply some pressed silica powder, the formula is quite different than the original HD powder. There is a bunch of ingredients in the pressed formula, while the loose powder only contain silica. It still leave a white cast with flash photography if you apply too much or don't blend it well, but this one is a bit more translucent than the original HD loose powder, which means that it is slightly less prone to leave a white cast.

I love this powder, it is completely invisible on the skin and never look cakey or too powdery! I do wish though that it would include a powder puff, especially at this price, since the main reason why I use a pressed powder is to carry it in my purse for touch ups. 

The Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Pressed Powder retail for $41 CDN for 6.2g.
