Honest reviews


Good Powder for Sensitive, Fair Skin

I have extremely sensitive skin and have to stay away from the heavier cream and liquid foundations. I also have extremely fair skin so it’s very hard for me to find a powder that matches my skin tone. CoverGirl Trublend Pressed Powder claims to blend to the color of your skin. I would say that it’s a pretty good match and I rarely look like I’m wearing make up when it is on. Some people, like me, who prefer a more natural look like this. Others, don’t particularly like that. It just depends on your preference. It’s a very sheer coverage- it won’t make blemishes completely disappear but it provides a nice, even skintone. It does not “cake” like other powders. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it does not last particularly long but it can be easily reapplied. I have found it better to use a brush to apply instead of the puff that they provide you with. If you want a light weight powder that won’t make you break out or look “cakey” then this is the powder for you!

It’s just “OK”

This powder isn’t a big deal, doesn’t cover much, doesn’t last long, and it does feel a little heavy to me, if just need a powder to seal here and there some shine like me, this will do. I don’t recommend it because of the price and the package, you could get the same quality that you are getting with this with another powder.

Great powder, great price!

I have used Trublends powder for at least five years. I try other brands, I decide I want something "different" or "better," and I always come back to this; it lasts all day for me, even though it’s not one of the crazy 24-hour formulas, and my face is never greasy. Finding it online for much cheaper than at Walmart? WIN!!

Favorite powder

I have bought this many, many times. I have tried SO many other brands and I always come back to this one. It is fantastic. I use it with the Trublend foundation and together it literally looks like I don’t have make up on. It doesn’t leave a line, it completely blends into my skin and it doesn’t cause any irritation! I really love this powder, I can’t praise it enough. If you are looking for a smooth, matte finish for your face, this is definitely worth a try. 🙂

mineral powder

Arrived on time but the color is a little darker than I thought it would be.I have tried powder I like better.

Better after oxidation

It looks too dark when just applied. I don’t know if it was due to my foundation but I hated it at first. After a few minutes it looked better. Not sure I’d buy again though.

great pressed powder!

This powder minimizes pores and leaves a smooth finish to my skin. It has always been one of my faves.

Blends really well.

I really like the coverage of this mineral powder. I am slightly allergic to parabens and dimethicone and this powder has both of them. I have to be sure I have my natural moisturizer well absorbed and I apply a light natural foundation before this powder; then I don’t have any reaction – I only use this powder every other day. Even though I purchased Translucent Fair 1, my face doesn’t look pale, the powder blends well and gives some ‘life’ to my skin. I will continue to purchase this product as long as my skin can handle it. I have used this powder on and off for over a year.
