  • Nice packaging, design wise.
  • affordable
  • no funky smell
  • paraben free
  • lightweight
  • Doesn’t break me out.
  • Keeps makeup in place for about 4 hours. Not bad for me as I don’t wear makeup for long hours.
  • Prevents my under eyes and laugh lines from creasing. These are the parts of my face that easily crease within 4 hours.

  • The mattifying and softening effects are not that obvious.
  • My skin seems to look dry.
  • Gets messy when placed upside down.review absolute hd flawless setting powder cooltext234363766215636

If it’s not for the drying effect, I’d totally love it. I’ve tried applying more and less, but it still makes my skin look dry. I kind of make my cheeks appear glossy by putting on some shiny blush. For what it’s worth, I think it’s still not bad for daily use and short hours.

Have you tried this one yet? If so, how’s your experience?
