    Almay Truly Lasting Color Pressed Powder

    Almay, truly sucky sponge

    Don't use the little pathetic sponge/puff they give you, it WILL cake up and it will not apply like a dream. I think this powder is ok. Its the first pressed powder that I've bought in a long time so I really cant say how well it compares to other powders. It does CAN look cakey so use a light hand and kabuki/foundation brush. I bought the lightest color which is 100/Light. I'm Asian but a pretty pale one. Even so I feel like this makes my skin look a tad bit too orangey and pink. Stay away if you're really pale. Theres, Light, Medium/Light, and Medium. So if you're really pale or really dark, stay away, I dont know why Almay doesnt try to expand their foundation colors a bit more. Also, I feel like my lines/wrinkles are definitely accentuated by this powder. just a little bit, its as bad with liquid foundations so I can deal. It offers medium coverage, sort of sheer but if you use a heavier hand you'll get more coverage but it *may* be cakey, I'm not sure. It cost me 13, so for a drugstore powder I expected a little more bang for my bucks. In the end this isnt the perfect powder compact, its not my HG. So disappointing, but at least I dont think it will break me out.
