Great powder for all over. The color was slightly darker for me I got the lightest one but nothing to noticeable. I loved the way it blended and did not cake up over my foundation. It can be worn by itself with some corrector for those really light makeup days or paired with tinted moisturizer and foundation and it still looks great.
Best eva! Mattifies perfectly, light and soft, lasts all day long and even longer! I'd just recommend using kabuki brush or something instead of their sponge or whatever it is
I really enjoy this pressed powder ! So much I actually purchased a darker one for contouring and bronzing! The colors are not orangy or too warm which I really enjoy as well!
This is a great pressed powder for giving natural looking coverage on bare skin, and to help set foundation as well.
I am not a huge fan of the 'puff' they provide in the compact; it's very small and awkward to use, and after one (gentle) wash the threads starting coming out of the sides. But it's usable in a pinch, and I have a good powder brush anyways.
My only other complaint is that I wish that they had made a powder shade to match every foundation shade in the Nearly Naked line. I bought the fairest shade in the pressed powder (Light) and it doesn't match either of the Nearly Naked liquid foundations I have (Ivory and Shell), which are some of the lightest shades in the foundation line. I can still use this powder in the summer with the Shell shade I have, but it's weird to me that they wouldn't have more shade options like the liquid foundations.
The compact is sturdy and a bit bigger than usual, but it has a nice clean look and a decent mirror inside. I definitely recommend this powder if you find a matching shade. It is long lasting, even with my combination skin, the coverage is buildable, and it really works well to set foundation without looking overdone.
To start, I really like this pressed powder. Normally I avoid drugstore powders because I find them either too heavy or barely there, and most of them contain a lot of junk that clogs my pores, so I shell out quite a bit for my nice Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base. I got this powder only because it was taped together in a bonus pack with the Nearly Nude Foundation, and why not try something for free, right?
At first I didn't think i'd use it until late summer, because the shade is "Medium" and looked way too dark for my skin. But when I tried it out I was surprised at how nicely it blended with my skin tone, and didn't look powdery or unnatural. It gave me a nice hint of colour, and great coverage. The powder is very fine and silky, and just one sweep of my brush did a lot. I didn't even bother with the little makeup sponge it came with, but it looks pretty useless to me.
The compact is a nice clean white, but it's fairly large, so I don't think this is a great travel compact. There is a decent size mirror inside though. Overall, the powder applies nicely for a natural look, and gives a decent amount of cover. This on top of the Nearly Nude Foundation is definitely a winning combo. Although i'll never stray from my JaneIredale powder, this one deserves a spot in my makeup bin, and is the first drugstore powder I would recommend to someone.
