This week I'm obsessed with... Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder!

With yet another impressive display of my mind-control powers over cosmetic companies, another product that up to now only existed in my mind has become a reality:

Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder - $41 - anyone who already loves the Microfinish Loose Powder but hates how un-portable it is has been waiting for this one - a PRESSED silky, lightweight finishing powder that softens the appearance of fine lines and pores and is perfect for use throughout the day to reduce shine and slightly mattify skin.

If you've never tried it, where the hell have you been?! It's great for all skin types, one universal shade fits all and it adds a soft-focus, naturally radiant effect to blur imperfections, such as fine lines and pores, while remaining completely invisible to even the most magnified HD lens. Just be careful not to use too much, it will show a white cast to the skin in pictures if you overdo it, just look at any "star's makeup mishaps" in the tabloids and you are sure to see an example of someone who did just that! And for these cold winter days, it's especially great that it's formulated with hyaluronic acid to help prevent skin dehydration.

You can use it with a powder sponge or puff but I find apply it like that shifts my foundation around too much so I prefer applying even my loose powder with a brush - Make Up For Ever has a lovely powder kabuki brush but it doesn't have a cover so for traveling with it, I prefer the Lise Watier retractable powder brush which is perfect for tossing in your bag and keeping it mess-free.

Available exclusively at Sephora, sephora.ca and Make Up For Ever boutiques.

  1. I have been eyeing the loose version for a while now, but I have hesitated. I think the pressed version might get me though. Haha.

  2. This product sounds great and would be more convenient for travel than the loose powder version. Count me in!
