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 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

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?

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.

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.

Use a powder puff (velvet ones not the kind it comes with sadly) and press into skin to lock in foundation.
use the puff it comes with to reduce shine throughout the day

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!

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!

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 use a big fluffy powder brush to apply and it works great. Using a brush gives you a lighter application than using a puff/sponge. The new packaging now has a separate compartment for the puff, so it's more hygienic.

I honestly much prefer the sponge it comes with. It's gentle, and I find a brush leaves streaks and brush marks and can wipe off your foundation.

Personally, I like the sponge, I have purchased a pack of sponges that are disposable that I use, I have noticed with the brush that i need to take up a lot more product to get the same effect and I feel like most of the product is lost in the brush. I like the sponge because I can really put a nice layer of even coverage on. (I have acne and oily skin and large pores in Tzone so I really need a good lightweight primer that I can use over my acne products) Hope this helps

Yes, but it's a poor quality, semi-fluffy powder puff- kind of like grandma would use and it's very small. I don't see how you could wash it more than a few times without it falling apart. Useless in my opinion.

ThIs comes with a very thin sponge. However the sponge it comes with applies the powder perfectly by pressing it in the skin. I really like the sponge included with the compact. It can be washed also.

Question
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.

I've never tried the UD powder so I cannot compare, but I can say that this leaves my face looking soft and supple, and it eliminates shine. I definitely need to reapply throughout the day, but this is because of my oily skin. I think it's worth a try.

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.
