This powder compact has a second compartment with the mirror and a sponge. But I never used the sponge for this. I have used brushes for this through and through. I feel that sponges somehow exacerbate powder caking issues, which is why I’ve always used brushes with this one. And since it sort of just grew into habit, I didn’t want to dirty the sponge so whenever I used a sponge with this one, I used different sponges anyways hahaha.
This is the product guide printed out on the back. So it’s meant to be matte, 16HR, and air fine. The ingredients are also printed here.
And this is the swatch up close with the exposure turned down so you can actually see it on me. You can see that it contributes some coverage, but still looks natural.
Up close, it has a very natural feel. It’s thin and wispy that it has matte effect, but the powder doesn’t look chalky on me. There’s a silky, velvety appearance. This is an actual photo that I did not have to airbrush, this is really just how nice the texture is.
