Packaging: 9/10

This pressed powder comes in a round, silver, plastic copmact that closes shut and contains a full-sized mirror inside.

Quality: 8.25/10

I have NC20 skin that approaches NC25 if I’m tanned. I tested the shade Angelina, which is a little dark on me right now, when I’m NC20.

This pressed powder gives medium to full coverage. It’s the kind of powder that can do heavy-duty work and that you’ll need to use a very light hand with if you want light coverage. As a consequence of the heavy coverage, you can tell you’re wearing powder on your face.

This formula doesn’t do a particularly good or poor job of keeping oiliness at bay. But it is long-wearing and doesn’t fade throughout the day.

This powder would be best for people with normal to oily skin who need full coverage to hide discoloration or acne.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

This powder is easy to use if you want medium to heavy coverage because it covers quickly without needing layering. If you want a more natural look, use a fan brush to apply.

Price: 8.75/10

For $38.50 you get 10 grams of product. This is a lot of product, but is still on the high side given the price of the foundation.


The ingredients list titanium dioxide as being in this powder. Titanium dioxide protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays. Unfortunately, there’s no SPF rating on this product, so I can’t say how much sun protection you get.
