I bought this on a whim last night and took about 10 seconds of testing it to decide to return it today. I was hoping for something with more coverage and staying power than the transluscent pressed powder I currently use, and I’ve read so many pleased reviews about mineral make-up that I really wanted to give it a whirl.
The container has a soft puff under the lid for application instead of a brush, which seemed like it would be cleaner and neater. The directions said to “invert the bottle”, which would cascade the mineral make-up through the puff for perfect application once you removed the cap.
What the directions should say:
“Turn container completely upside down and smack as hard as you can against the palm of your hand, because there’s no way in hell that ‘gently inverting’ this bottle is going to make this powder go anywhere. After your hand turns red and painful and there’s still barely any powder on the application side of the puff, but powder finely misted all over your bathroom counter, smack your forehead with the puff until just short of unconsciousness, and there might be some powder on the puff by now. Dab onto your nose and/or forehead, regard the unpleasant, orange-tinged color the powder imparts, and go hunt down your receipt to return this wretched product.”
That would sum it up nicely.
PROS: None. I can’t even list the relatively low price (about $7) as a pro because spending anything on this product is a waste.
CONS: package (powder does not easily distribute to puff for application); odd color; chalky feel; cumbersome application
STARS: Scale of 1-5: 0!
I hated it, can you tell? Yet I have heard some great things about mineral make-up, so I will try yet again….
