I tried Pur, Tarte pressed, and Laura Mercier recently. Didn’t like any of them, none came even close to my Cle De Peau. Still looking for a cheaper alternative that is just as good on oily skin. The refill is $95 but I found a website that sells them for $55. But still it goes so fast just a few months.

Megan Hardwick says:

Adore you for doing this video. I would love for you try out some mineral powder foundations. I would love to see the young blood, pure cosmetics 4 in 1, terra firma hydra silk and the tart 12 hour airbrush powder foundation. Really more curious about the terra firma and the young blood. Both online products. Basically I’m looking for a foundation that will hold up well when I sweat (which is often 🙁 ).

Joseph Valenti says:

Dermablend Camo Powder Foundation, also Clinique powder is good! I have redness, and found nothing works around the nostrils, I cream conceal first, then apply the powder foundation, and use a setting spray!

Lynn M says:

Love the video!!! Could you please tell us what shade in each powder you are?

Amber Frazier says:

Try the eco tools buffing brush to apply the mac foundation, its smaller, apply it with light tapping motions working out, and then blend it with a buki brush,. You’ll get better smoother coverage.

CiaoGalassia says:

Maybe the brush you’re using isn’t dense enough for powder foundations.

Lynn M says:

HI – I tried Aveda Powder Foundation – it is excellent!

Carmen Walker says:

The way Powder Foundations would work is apply primer, concealer then apply powder foundation overtop and build to desired coverage 🙂

Onion Face says:

Makeup on point! Love your look today.

Star Apple says:

Hi what shade do you select for the urban decay foundation, I am about to buy now too

Katie Higgs says:

When I use my powder foundation I use a different primer in my t zone like porefessional because it does get a little cakey in the nose area! Try this with the studio fix, it’s my fav powder!

estrella bright says:

your eyeliner <:O

harini jhaveri says:

I have tried so many powder foundation and Nothing beats Laura gellers double take baked versatile powder foundation. I am not powder foundation girl at all but something about this powder foundation . Its just awesome . I mostly set my undereye concealer with it and its flawless.

Sharon Lam says:

Very thorough review, thank you so much!!!

MrsCarter306 says:

take picture with flash too!!! iphone flash please!!!

Jennifer McCoy-Wall says:

I’m curious…..why was Bare Minerals not part of the lineup? As far as powder foundation goes they are probably the best.

funkygirlkathryn says:

instead of compact powders you should try loose powders. I feel like they give that more full coverage look and overall look alot better especially if apply with a densly packed brush ans set it with a spray. I love my smashbox powder. it cool because it’s like compact and you shave it into a loose powder and it feels just like skin it’s amazing. I know alot of people also like the tarte Amazonian clay loose powder

SupraJulie says:

The thing with powder is that it’s easy to touch it up which makes it great if you have oily skin or wear glasses where you’ll want to touch up anyway.

Vineice Mitchell says:

Thank you for your review, I love urban decay powder foundation. can I recommend you trying smashbox primer, the green one. it’s wonderful it reduce redness on your skin.

Alma Nino says:

I really liked your style of this review. Really impressed. Thank you! Subscribed. 🙂

Rama Hakim says:

Great !

Lori Cogsdale says:

just stumbled upon this video – please tell me what brand and color of lipstick and lip liner you are wearing. It is beautiful!! Thank You!

Jennifer Currie says:

you tested so many! awesome review (:

Lauren Collins says:

Such a great review! I love how in-depth you went into each product. This was extremely helpful 🙂 Hugs!

Nini Mimi says:

This is a fantastic review, thank you so much!!! I was wondering if – as far as cackiness is concerned – putting a setting spray on top of the powder foundation could make it look more natural, less cakey and make it last longer, what do you think? p.s. what concealer did you use for your undereye area? Big hugs from Switzerland :)))

Free mind says:

She looks like Chloe Morello!

Joyce Mayo says:

Try dabbing the powder instead of wiping. I think you will be happier and you will get more coverage.

SageeTheMage says:

You remind me of Elle Woods.
