Luminous, buildable, weightless and those are only some of the amazing aspects of this pressed foundation.

Encased in a sleek chrome compact and even wrapped up in a stunning purple pouch, this powder is definitely luxe. It has the look but we are here to talk about if the product inside is worth it's high end price tag.
It says to have combined advanced technology with creamy high-performance pigment so that the ultra-definition powder foundation delivers a perfected look and weightless feel to skin.

It has a buildable coverage so you can lightly brush some on to set a foundation or apply it more generously to wear on it's own. The demi-matte formulation is made to have sufficient coverage while still appearing natural on the skin. One of it's properties that aid this formulation is light reflecting particles, leaving a luminous glow on the skin.

It is quite a lightweight powder, much less heavy than MAC Studio Fix but as smooth as NARS Pressed Foundation. It is quite similar to Chanel Mat Lumiere in terms of coverage but isn't as chalky since it does have the light reflecting properties throughout it.
I would particularly recommend this product for oily skin because it is well known that powder foundation sits nicely with oily skin and decreases shininess that you would otherwise get with a liquid foundation.

This pressed foundation has been released in 14 different shades with all undertones catered for so it's a product that I don't think you would struggle too much finding a colour match.

It retails for $52 and is available exclusively from Mecca Maxima.
