Why Pressed Powder?

Pressed powders come inside of a compact, giving them some distinct benefits over loose powders. A pressed powder won't make a mess when it comes time to apply it, and the powder puff and foam pad applicators are very simple to use.

Because pressed powder doesn't spill and is much neater than loose powder, it's a better choice for touching up your makeup during the day and taking with you when you travel for work or pleasure.

Some compacts even have mirrors in their lids, allowing you to touch up your makeup anywhere you desire. Most pressed powders are heavier than loose powders. As a result, many women find that they provide a little more coverage for difficult-to-disguise flaws.

Types of Pressed Powders

Most pressed powders are tinted products, meaning that they contain pigments and help provide lightweight coverage for imperfections. When shopping for a tinted powder, you'll need to pay attention to both the color and the finish of the product to ensure that you choose the right one.
  • The color should match your skin tone as closely as possible.

  • If you have oily or combination skin, look for a matte finish, oil control or mattifying powder, which will help to reduce shine. Women with dry skin should opt for conventional pressed powders rather than oil controlling options.

  • To make fine lines and wrinkles less visible on a mature complexion, you can use a pressed powder with a slight shimmer.

  • In addition to tinted powders, there are a small number of pressed translucent powders available. Translucent powders have no tint and are used to create a natural finish and reduce shine.
