Essence: Fix & Matte translucent loose powder

Hello everyone!

I recently run out of my favorite translucent powder and I had to get a cheap one on the same morning, as I wasn't able to get my hands on a Mac prep and prime.

I thought why not trying an Essence product again, as I knew how ridiculously amazing products they have at those low prices.
I was a bit curious whether I would like it or not, just because I always tend to put on my face high end products which I know they would fit me right away! Dont care for lips and eyes that much as I do for my face...!

Well, to tell you the truth I wasn't expecting a lot for a 4 Euros face product (15.5 gr ).
Gosh, how wrong I was...!!! This stuff is incredible!!! You can't tell it's that cheap with so much product in it!

It gives you an extra soft and super mat result even on top of your most liquidy foundation !!!
Seriously, it mattifies your face without leaving dry white patches or powdery effect.
Honestly, it does look like I have nothing on! Like I have just put on a mat foundation and thats it!
If you touch your face, your are 100% sure that your foundation won't transfer to your hands, neither to your clothes! I love it!
It's amazing whether I wear my tinted sunscreen and my concealer on top just for a mat result, or even when I have my mat foundation on, just for a little bit extra setting on under eye concealed area!
I tend to use it in both ways. It won't flake on you no matter how cold or hot it's outside!
It's like you put a magic super soft and transparent layer to your skin, setting everything under that, sealing them in place and tranforming you onto a baby face! Can't say enough about it!
That's why I always prefer translucent over compact pressed powders. Don't need color, only a mat result and that little miracle does that!

What I also really loved from the very first time is that I had a puffy sponge thing from a previous Elf translucent powder which fits perfectly under the lid of this one, so I dont need an extra brush when im travelling, its like I have a brand new powder-brush set !! I do love the package on its own too, although it can be quite messy when you open it up.

Don't know... If I had my eyes closed and you would give me this one, the Make Up For ever, the Vichy dermablend, the Mac one or the Rimmel, I couldn't tell a difference!
And for the price, well... I still can't believe that this low budget product can transform you so much. I'll keep buying it every time I'm on a rush of a -I need it now- powder! So happy it exists !
 The above one is the new formula they released, which has less product, 11gr from 15.5 and it's more expensive from 3.99 now 4.30. They shouldn't have done that. No matter what though, it still is one of the best alternatives out there, which I will keep buying!

Very excited I gave it a go! You can't go wrong for that price for sure!

wiii :-)
