Questions & Answers for Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder

Question
Sparkly?
Hi! I've been wanting to get this for a while, so I went to Sephora at the mall today. But when I saw the tester for this powder, it looks like it has a lot of shimmer in it! I have oily skin, so I tend to stay away from powders, foundations, etc. that contain shimmers or luminizers in order to look less shiny. But I still really want it, so has anyone with oily skin tried this and liked it? Is the shimmer too much for oily skin, or does it actually look nice? Thanks for your help!!

I didn't like this product too much on my oily skin. It left a sheen on my face, especially forehead. So it looked somewhat oily.

Not shimmery at all when I used it. I never used it by itself though, just to set my foundation. It's still my favorite pressed powder. Leaves your skin super soft :)

I have very oily skin in my T zone but thankfully this powder is not shimmery at all. It the perfect powder to set your make up and mattefy your oily complexion.

i have oily/combo skin
this is a very heavy powder
i prefer a powder that gives the effect of a healthy natural glow as opposed to either dulling or making me sparkle/shine

try stila tri-color powder, it's not shimmery but highlights your natural beauty

I've been using it every day this summer over the last couple weeks, and I have found it to have any sparkles. It does leave a ~slight~ dewy finish.

No sparkly. It is matte. The Candlelight powder has a shimmer to it but this doesn't. It goes on cololess & matte. I've had good luck with this so far.

Can I use this to set my under-eye concealor?
I am on a quest to find a powder that will set my under eye concealor nicely, without it getting into those fine lines/wrinkles as the day goes on. Can this do that?

After applying your foundation dab onto the areas you normally see oil and anytime you do start to see some shine just dab again

I've used this under and over my concealer and it works nicely :) I have tiny lines under my eyes that tend to make me look 80 with the wrong make-up, and using this underneath and over my concealer/foundation seems to make a world of difference.

Yes, I use it to set under eye concealer and I think it works well. I am in 45-54 age range and have light fine wrinkles but it does not cake in the wrinkles. This is my favorite overall pressed powder

This will work perfectly for that! It's formulated to cover pores, so it "floats" on your skin, not settling in lines and pores.

answer 6
I would NOT!! this powder is intense... drying and dulling. avoid it under eyes as it increases the appearance of the concealer in crease lines.
it's a good size for a grab and go for the beach or hot day at an amusement park to combat sweaty, oily shine. But would not recommend this powder, there are better ones at sephora. i would recommend Stila tri-colored powder, or bare essentials mineral veil.

I used a light top layer over my foundation to set and make my face soft. I had no problems with it appearing white. It does appear kind of white when applied but I softly blend it with my hands a little and it helps. Moderation I suppose!

this powder does not create flashback when photographed, nor does it create a white cast. It blends very well with a brush and does not appear to sit on the surface of the skin like some translucent powders.

i would categorize this more in the realm of photoshoot rather than everyday. it dulls the color and natural glow of skin

Not if you apply it with a brush. What I do is apply with the puff and then blend with a brush. Perfection ;)

I think you powder it lightly on top of your foundation. However, you will have to experiment to see what works for you. What works for me might not work for you. Don't afraid to try. Good luck!

I use a brush instead of the little poof that came with. I just dust this on over my foundation.

Even though it says "Primed" and Poreless, and indicates that it can be used as a primer, I find the best results are at the very end of make up application to mattify, and seal foundation coverage. I use it over both mineral powder foundation and liquid foundations (depending on the day), and I use it sparingly in an"touch-up" fashion in my oiliest areas or areas prone to shine such as forehead, brow bone, nose, upper lip, and chin.. It's also great to use throughout the day if needed, but I barely ever need to touch up once I've already "sealed" my make up in with this powder.. A little goes a long way, too, so it will lags a while!

Question
Is this product supposed to have 2 layers of powder?
I just purchased it today and when I tipped it upside-down the tin of makeup popped out and underneath was a whole other layer. Or is it supposed to be separate, like the top layer is the primer and the bottom layer is the finishing veil?

I wasn't aware of any other layers. Mine didn't fall out and I used it normally until I could see the shiny bottom. I'd return and get a new one. I loved mine!

Cause break out? Compare to Nars and MUFE?
I have very sensitive acne, break out prone skin. (very oily T- zone, super drying U-zone)
Is this product safe for sensitive skin like mine?
And I want to know how it compares to Nars and MUFE's pressed white powder.
I only used MUFE's hd powder but it sinks in my very noticeable pores.
If you guys have experiences with those pressed powder, could you recommend which is the best?

I have combination skin and only use this under makeup in my T-zone or over makeup as the day wears on. It does dry out the skin underneath which is why I onl use it in my T-zone - otherwise my face feels tight

Comparison to Urban Decay De-Slick
How does this pressed powder compare to the Urban Decay De-Slick pressed powder compact? I've been using that one and have really liked it, but when I saw this, I was curious about how they compare. I use the primed and poreless primer that I love, and since I'm almost out of the UD, I was wondering if I should purchase this instead.

That's a great question, as I've actually never used Urban Decay's Deslick Pressed Powder, and I like Urban Decay products, I've used their Deslick make up setting spray before, and it works great .. I am actually almost out of my Too Faced Primed and Poreless Compact Powder and although I do love it, I may try the UD Deslick one to compare! Will let you know if I do! Would be a very interesting comparison.
