LA Girl Pro Face HD Matte Pressed Powder in Fair

When it comes to pressed powders, I feel like I have tried them all. Although I currently have major dry patches on my face (thanks Roaccutane), my skin becomes extremely oily throughout the day. When I was sent the LA Girl Pro Face HD Pressed Powder in ‘Fair’, I must admit, I was not expecting much. I have found that cheaper powders do nothing for my skin and anything matte clings to the dry patches I have, leaving me looking ridiculous. I have also really struggled with finding face powders that are pale enough for me. However, after wearing this non-stop for the past 2 weeks, I have to say I’ve fallen in love.

The HD Pressed Powder is extremely soft, which sometimes means that there is a lot of dust when your swirl your brush in the pan . But to me, this is not a huge problem. It blends perfectly onto the skin and does not exaggerate any dry patches on my face. The powder adds a little coverage to the skin, but does not look at all ‘cakey’. And, although matte, it does not leave your skin looking flat and lifeless. This is definitely something I have struggled with in the past when trying different face powders. It helps to set my foundation and keep my skin looking a lot less oily throughout the day. I find that I only need to re-apply it after 5/6 hours – a huge plus for me as some days at work I hardly have time to eat, let alone retouch my makeup!

The packaging of the LA Girl HD Matte Pressed Powder is very similar to the LA Girl Strobe Lite Powders . Although a little more bulky than needed, it protects the powder well. It also looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. Underneath the powder is a little tab that when lifted, reveals a mirror and sponge. I have never used a sponge to top up with my powder throughout the day, but it is a nice touch for those who do.

The LA Girl HD Matte Powders are available from Just My Look for just £5.99. They have 15 shades on offer, so there is definitely something for everyone. I would love to know your opinion on the powder if you have tried it.
