Hello lovelies! Smile

Today I’m here to review one of my faves by the Make Up For Ever brand!

So meet please the HD Pressed Powder which is talc-free:


Even though the product looks white in the packaging, it doesn’t leave any white cast on my skin and it is absolutely seamless. It’s translucent. I like translucent powders more than any others which have pigment to them. The translucent powder is so versatile and will suit everybody.


It’s silky, finely grained and very smooth to the touch. It applies with the thinnest layer onto the skin (to swatch it I had to apply a huge amount and really rub it onto my skin). It makes my skin super velvety to the touch.

Use and who will it suit:

Most of all I use it to set my makeup as well as visually even out the skin tone. The mattifying properties are good and my skin stays sheen-free for a long time, but still I have to touch up and reapply it from time to time. The powder doesn’t dry out my skin, and it never looks pasty-like on the face.


What to apply it with:

The fluffy natural bristle brush is the best option for me. It applies the product with the thinnest layer ever!

But I don’t like carrying brushes with me, as it’s non-hygienic and since there’s no applicator or puff included, I bought an applicator at the local supermarket.

And I can say the following: the applicator I bought applies the powder with a thicker layer than the brush, so be careful not to overdo.


Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Dimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Isoceteth-10, Caprylyl Glycol, Nylon-12, Aqua (Water), Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate.

Price: $37

Made in France

Loose and cheaper dupes for the Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder:

  • Make Up For Ever Ultra HD loose powder. This one is cheaper than a pressed one

  • NYX High Definition Finishing Translucent Powder

  • A firm fixture of my makeup bag

    Hi! Today I’m sharing my thoughts on a firm fixture of my summer makeup bag which is a good ally for my oily skin when it’s boiling hot outside. I bought it absolutely by chance, it hasn’t been on my wishlist for ages. But one day it just magically turned out to be in my makeup bag.
