    Drugstore Gem

    I love face powders. I like doing a quick conceal with concealer and then putting powder on it. The ONE thing I don't like about powders is if they're loose. They make such a mess, it's not even funny. This powder by essence is great. It does what it needs to do and it's under 6$...need I go on?! Highly recommend!

    Underrated

    Drug store brands are so underrated, I tried this product by chance when I was using makeup for the first time. And now it's my go-to powder. It's not expensive and gets the job done! It's way better than high luxury powders that are 40$.

    Disappointing powder

    I have to be honest, I have not been more disappointed in a product like I have with this powder. It mattifies for about 15 minutes and then you're more oily than when you started. I strongly discourage anyone buying this. It's whit and chalky and dusty. I do NOT recommend it whether you are new to make up or a make up junkie, this is a hard pass

    It's better to spend a few more dollars and get something that works better. I would recommend literally any brand for powders. Essence does have other products that are awesome but this was a hard pass. Right now I'm loving the Maybeline fit me powder a million times better. But that said, I'm hoping to give it a good few more weeks before I can come back with a review.

    LOVE IT +CRUELTY FREE

    This is a cruelty free vegan cosmetic brand that is offered at a drugstore cost. I always have one of these in my makeup bag. It's a great fixing and setting powder.

    great

    I have been using the waterproof version of this. Now, I haven't exactly been splashed in the face or gone swimming with it on or anything like that. But it seems to stay on when I wear it on humid/rainy days. It has a softening effect to my features when I wear it.

    Great baking product

    Great for baking my face, sets all my foundation and doesn’t have much pigment. Amazing price and nice that it’s not a loose powder. Definitely recommend.

    No Shine All Day Long!

    This white powder looks terrifying, but rest assured it goes on completely translucent! It sets my makeup well, and keeps me shine-free all day long—I never have to re-powder later in the day with this stuff! I do wish the packaging was more durable, but for how affordable this is it's not a big deal.

    Drugstore win

    Love this mattifying powder. Locks in foundation, powder, blush & brow gel PERFECTLY. Long lasting, all day results. And for the price, nothing but a win all around!

    Fantasitic matte powder for less than a Starbucks frappe

    When I first started experimenting with make up I used a very liquidy foundation that always looked greasy, this was a fantastic solution. As well as after the gym perfect matte finish,making me look normal. It’s easy to carry and the best pocket friendly powder I’ve found. Reccomend 10000 times over.

    Great for touching up or setting makeup

    I really love this powder except for the fact that it breaks after a few weeks of me having it, I find I cant keep it in a purse or makeup bag and If I bump it on my makeup desk it just shatters. It is a really great podwer tho and it sets my makeup in place all day, for drugstore its really really good and comparable to high end!
