I always enjoy reading about different kind of product comparisons, it makes me easily figure out which one will suit my needs , so I hope this post will be interesting for those of you who are looking for a pressed powder. Ok, so let's start with packaging.
Ives Saint Laurent 'Matt and Radiant' pressed powder (read my review Here) and Elizabeth Arden 'Flawless Finish' powder (read my review Here) have beautiful golden packaging, very luxurious look, while Lancome 'Translucence' Mattifying silky powder has modest , simple black packaging.
Ives Saint Laurent 'Matt and Radiant' pressed powder is very lightweight and smooth, it's so light and silky that if I don't make perfect, even foundation, before I apply it, this YSL powder will not be able to cover imperfections.
Elizabeth Arden 'Flawless Finish' powder is also lightweight, but it's not as smooth as YSL one, it's more like, powder-y, and it can cover little imperfections of the skin. But I personally wouldn't wear it without some foundation.
Lancome 'Translucence' Mattifying silky powder has medium coverage. Since I don't have any blemishes, or wrinkles on my face, I can easily wear this powder without any foundation to get some light-to-medium coverage. it's not too smooth or too powder-y, (if this is the word I can use here).
Which one I would repurchase?
Definitely Lancome. I actually repurchased one time and will do it in future as well. Don't take me wrong, I love both YSL and Elizabeth Arden powders, I enjoy wearing them but not enough, to repurchase them.
Have you tried any of these powders? Let me know in the comments below, and have a lovely day.
