Ultra lightweight continuous coverage. Goes on powder-fresh with a shine-free finish. Wears comfortably for 18 hours.
Avon’s newly packaged Extra Lasting Powder Foundation is said to provide light-weight coverage with a formula that lasts 18 hours. This foundation is available in 10 shades. The shade shown in this review is Translucent, and was tested as a setting powder.
This foundation comes in a red, plastic compact that snaps shut and opens to reveal a mirror inside, as well as a sponge applicator.
The shade Translucent stays true to its name. It goes on top of my liquid foundation without noticeably changing its color. The powder leaves a matte finish without looking cakey or making the face look completely flat.
It’s not an oil-controlling powder, so those with oily or combination skin will still need to blot or re-apply powder, though you will stay matte for at least the first couple hours of wear with this powder applied.
The formula is pretty light-weight, so the skin doesn’t feel weighed-down through the day.
Ease of Use: 9/10
Because this powder is translucent and has a non-cakey formula, it’s very easy to use.
