What: Tara reviews Maybelline Dream Matte Presses Powder, $6.49
The Lowdown: There has been a lot of hype about this pressed powder, but my expectations were low because I didn’t find the Dream Matte foundations or blushes all that enjoyable. I picked this up to keep in my purse as a backup, and it ended up winning me over so hardcore that I went back to buy two more (one can never have too many compacts).
This powder goes on like a dream and sets your makeup without making your face look cakey or dry. It’s very finely milled and has excellent pigmentation for buildable coverage. And the true test, how long did the shinies stay away? I spent the better part of a stressful work day shine-free, which is a rare and beautiful thing. Tip: use a powder brush instead of the packaged puff if you want that flawless finish.
Yea or Nay: For the price, you can’t find a better pressed powder.
Buy it: @ Drugstore, Target, Walgreens, etc.
