Pressed Powder Reviews

February 15, 2006

I will be starting a list of pressed powder reviews as requested by Juny. To start off, let’s look at my first pressed powder, MAC Studio Finish Pressed Powder ($18.50), that I picked up during a trip to Canada.

MAC Studio Finish Pressed PowderHoused in MAC’s signature round compact, the MAC Studio Finish Pressed Powder comes in a wide variety of shades to suit different skin tones along with a sponge for application.

I have normal to dry skin and thought this was a tad too dry. Coverage is medium but it did not wear well on me. It had a tendency to oxidize and change color during the day. I don’t think I would purchase this again.
