this product DOES what its said to do! i used this to set my foundation. and my face stayed matte the whole day. no shine. none at all. i have very oily skin! so this is a wonderful product for oily skin people. this had not broke me out. (im acne prone) i have to go to school for 9 hours. so this makes my foundation LAST! no slip/sliding/greasy feeling/shine. none of that just matte!! very happy with the results of this hah. :D!! i recommended this to people with oily skin or people who like matte finishes. also it was 75 degrees out today and it looked great after getting out of school! wonderful just super! :D
This product is very beautiful on the skin. I am cool-colored, pale with pink undertones, grey/blue eyes, and ashy light blonde hair. (I think it is very important to establish this when reviewing a product.) I find that all the other powders that I have tried are way too sallow and yellow based. This powder is very light, however, without the yellowness. (Yay!) Some may find this to have the undesired affect of making one look like a vampire. I happen to think this a plus because I am sort of a goth-type. Don't let that put you off, because I do know a lot about make-up, and if you have pale skin like me, you want to buy this powder. It is a neutral, so whether you are warm-toned or cool-toned, you can most definitely wear this as long as you are pale enough. It leaves my skin matte for a good 6 hours, which is awesome considering that I have pretty oily skin. Most powders only keep me shine-free for about 1 hour. I recommend that you get a good powder puff or powder brush to apply it, though, because the sponge that it comes with does a rather lousy job. This is my standby and I use it all the time. I adore it. I hope that this was helpful! :)
I've just recently got more in depth with using and how to use makeup, so I figured I'd start small. I had purchsed items from Hardy Candy in the past and I was totally impressed with everything, so I figured I'd give it a try. Man, was I blown away! It does wonders for the shine that usually starts on my forehead and keeps my foundation and concealer in check, which is important the humid climate I live in. Plus, a little goes a long way and this'll definitely last forever. Totally buying again.
This stuff is wonderful, I have some shine on my nose and cheek bones and this keeps it away ALL day! Not to mention it helps your concealer (i recommend useing "just face it" hard candy one step foundation) give off a more polished look. Great buy!!
I bought this product because i have the usual mid-day shine. I have used translucent powders from other brands from high end to low end... i also have used blotting papers. I decided to try this product for the heck of it... you never know till you ty it right? I am light skinned at the moment, not fair, but not medium... i'm not sure how it would do on a person with darker skin, but for me, it worked just as promised... it got rid of shine & for me it did NOT add any weird white color... it just blended into my skin/make-up translucently as it says. I've been very pleased with it :) The only thing i would recommend is using a light touch & blending it in well... also, i use a different applicator than the cute heart sponge applicator it comes with... you can get a cheap applicator anywhere... overall a GREAT product for the money :)
This is a good translucent powder however, the sponge the package comes with is probably not the optimal way of applying this product since it just cakes on the powder. After lightly blotting (i use it primarily on my nose) on skin, i must spread the product evenly with my fingers to allow the shine to become matted without looking like i stuck my nose in flour. Overall, good product because it cuts the shine but bad packaging.
First off, this is a great easy to use product, I use this to set my makeup and it makes it look extra flawless, HOWEVER - It does make you look very pale if you have a darker skin tone, I'm a decently dark beige. I have to mix in a bit of my dark face powder in with this so I don't look like a ghost, but it still works very nicely.
I love this since I was going for a goth look. I'm already pretty naturally pale, but this makes me look almost paper white (but not that intense). It goes on naturally after the primer I ordered (same brand), and I love it!!
I was excited to try this matte powder over the glamoflauge concealer. When I opened the package the compact broke. Not to mention there wasn't anything to apply the powder with, even though there's a spot underneath the product for a powder puff or applicator sponge. I was dissapointed with this purchase.
When I bought this product, I was very excited, thinking I was going to finally have matte skin all day!..but this wasn't the case. When I put it on in the morning, as soon as I got to school, my face was shiny again, and I had to re-touch. And every period after that as well. (my periods are 45 min long) It only keeps me matte for like a half an hour. NO WHERE NEAR ALL DAY. However, during the half hour, my skin did look great! Just wish it would last longer like it said..
I love this a lot I have reall y pale alabaster skin and it is super oily and when I put anything on more then foundation I breakout. But I put this on over my foundation it absorbs all the oil dosen't make me breakout and my foundation dosen't need to be reapplied during the day. I have had this now forever it hasn't gotten old and there is still a lot left.
This is the second time I've bought this product and I love it. It comes with a heart shaped sponge applicator that is washable and is stored in a separate compartment beneath the powder cake with mirror. Coverage is light and doesn't make me break out. Doesn't have a funky smell. Great for touch ups. Not tested on animals and is cruelty free. Low price with high quality.
I bought this along with the Glamoflauge heavy duty concealer (without knowing they went together). First I want to say that for the price paid, this product works wonders. I'm naturally oily and I use this over my foundation (Covergirl Simply Ageless) and it really makes me perfectly matte. HOWEVER; I would also like to say that applying with the supplied sponge is probably not a good idea. It's applies a bit chalky with it. When I tried to use my fingers it did that annoying chalky thing on the make up itself. I would recommend this to someone if you use a brush. Works wonderfully for the price paid. And also makes the Glamoflauge heavy duty concealer look SO natural when covering a tattoo. Really sets your foundation and blush.
I bought this because my local store was out of the powder I normally use.I had never used Hard Candy anything before.I totally love it.I am very very pale & this just gives me a very natural pale look and I love it.
I love hard candy!! so I bought as gifts for Christmas.
This was for the younger girls there skin color is light and fair. Not even two days I got calls saying how much they love the makeup.
