Comments about Dermablend Compact Powder Foundation, Ivory, .48 oz:
I first tested this product in store & was very impressed with the coverage & blend-ability. The first time I used it, I applied it right before going out to dinner, over my primer & tinted moisturizer. I was thrilled with how beautiful it looked. When returning home from dinner, I was still pleased with how nice it looked, but washed my face shortly after arriving home. The next time I used it, it was the real full day test...and it was a failure. After about 3 hours of wear, my face looked AWFUL. I'm only 29 years old, yet it settled & accentuated the few lines I have. It appeared patchy & streaky, and with the slightest touch was easily smudged & rubbed off. B/c I spent so much on this makeup, I was determined to make this work. I have since tried this compact in different combinations of primers & foundations, setting powders & sprays. I just can't make this work for me. It always looks awful after only a few hours of wear. Disappointed :(.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
