Pressed powder is one of those makeup items a lady can usually skimp a bit on, but one has to be careful which brand they choose. My problems with less-expensive powders (i.e., non-department store brands) have been a) clogged pores, b) bad match to foundation color, c) doesn't keep shine at bay, d) leaves a line of demarcation as it turns color after application. I have worn translucent pressed powder for years, because I'm very fair-skinned. But when I started wearing self-tanner, it simply became too light in color no matter what brand I tried. I wear Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation in Shade 006, when I'm self-tanning. Keep in mind that I am incredibly pale to start with, Shade 001 in that foundation brand, so 006 is tan for me! Anyway, this powder is a FLAWLESS match to the 006 foundation! It will work with 008 beautifully, too. So if you have medium to light tan skin, this powder ROCKS! I like it better than Revlon's PhotoReady Medium Powder, which is nice but is darker and doesn't quite have as nice a texture as a this one. Boots is silky powder, like what you find in dept. store brands. I have normal-to-dry skin, but even I can get shiny by mid-afternoon in my hot, humid Southern climate of residence. Not with Boots! This powder really keeps foundation in place all day, especially if you're wearing a good foundation to start with. I highly recommend the Revlon PhotoReady Foundation + Boots Pressed Powder combo for all-day-long fresh-looking, natural, beautiful skin. This combo looks like you're wearing nothing, yet gives the illusion of possessing a flawless complexion.
