”This is by far, the best pressed powder for me. Not only is it cheap but it is really light on the skin. There is no fragrance to it, so that’s a plus point. I have oily skin, but this powder helps my skin to minimize the oily-ness. If you find this somewhere, go and give it a try! You will be amazed!”

So happy I found you !!!

So happy I found this product. It literally lived-up to its promise - oil-absorbing and concealing. So impressive for a compact powder under 200! It does not oxidize too unlike other pressed powder I tried. It's almost 2 months and I'm yet to hit the pan due to less to touch-ups (I have oily T-zone but this product lasted me at least 4 hours before my next application).

Good for Everyday Use!

I had really oily skin, but now it's going towards combination, nevertheless my face needs touching up every four hours. I decided to try this product because of its price. Now I use it for my everyday use! It's lightweight, compact, and covers my oiliness well. It also doesn't cake, which is a plus. And for that price, it's a steal.

Beauty oil Control!

Not a fan of the packaging. It is affordable make up. It helps control oil and the matte finish kept you looking all natural and fresh throughout the day. But what really caught me to go for this mineral powder is the shade (tan). The darker shade is what keeps it looking natural.

Jusy perfect for my skin!

Having a tanned skin tone is really some type of a challenge if you want to buy a makeup, because most of the products are for lighter skin. But LA colors mever dissapoint me. A cheap product indeed, but does what it really says. it doesn't crease and just perfect for my skin! I've been using it for a week now and I guess this will be my go-to powder!

I've been searching for the right powder for me and now I finally found it! The perfect shade(Nude), texture and finish. I use this as setting powder and for touch ups. I can even use this alone and it still gives me coverage(except my dark eye circles) I love it!!! Definitely a HG! <3

Great Find!

I do not believe that the more expensive your make-up are, the more it'll give the effect you wanted. Well, this pressed powder is a must-have in your make-up pouch. It keeps your skin shine-free, plus, its lightweight so it does not cake or clog your pores. I have a very sensitive skin, so i am very careful in choosing my cosmetics, and this is one of my favorites. But, the packaging is not so bad, just bad because it does not come with a puff and a small mirror (like half of its round cap), but its fine. As long as its good for my skin.

A Steal!

For its price, this powder is quite a steal. It mattifies the face and combats oil, yet it does not cling to my dry patches. When I use this, I don't have to touch up as often as I usually need to, and I can go about my day without worrying about oiliness.

L.A Colors Pressed Powder is something that I would highly recommend to any one who is just starting with make up or for some one who want quality make up products without spending a fortune. I am not a big fan of the packaging but the powder itself is gorgeous!

Evens out skin tone well

This is probably the most inexpensive pressed powder that I’ve tried—yup, less than 200 bucks! So affordable yet quite effective in setting my makeup (liquid foundation) and in making my skin tone look more even. I still put bb cream then use pressed powder over it for a flawless finish.

Surprised by this! This is a great powder to have from an affordable brand! It's great because it's lightweight and has a number of shades to choose from, depending on your skin tone. The powder itself is light and absorbs oil. It worked well on my super oily T-zone. I didn't have to blot as often whenever I used this!

Oily skin

This pressed powder by L A Colors is a mineral powder in compact form. It does not provide too much of a coverage but it is nice since for touch ups after removing excess oil from blotting. It is a little too drying for me though, but I think it would probably work best for those with combination to oily skin.

This is one of the cheapest pressed powders I know of, and it's lightweight as well, it doesn't feel like you have much on your face. Sadly, oil control isn't that great, and I don't like the packaging much either. However, the powder itself is great and I mostly used it for touchups so it took a while before I hit the pan.

Everyday compact!

Price wise, this is really promising! I was looking for a budget friendly powder when I saw this so tried it. I have it in beige and it goes along well in my skin. Its light on skin and not cakey. Down side is it doesnt take for long before my face sweat again because of the weather so I have to re apply again. Over all I like it. Worth the price.

Does the job!

It's my first time using product. Its affordable and at the same time has a light touch. I also noticed that my face is less oily when I use the product. Although I had to retouch at least twice. It's the perfect settling powder. But I would suggest using it with foundation. Give it a try!

Mineral powder

This pressed powder by L A Colors is a mineral powder. I have combo to oily skin and this works great for me. It mattifies my skin for about 3 hours during the summer season which is nice for me. I also use this for retouching after blotting excess oil off of my face. This also is very affordable.

Comfortable wear

The L.A. Colors Pressed Powders is one of the cheapest ones on the block. It has decent staying power with slight coverage. It is however not sweat proof so it's more appropriate to use it during cooler weather. I like that it's lightweight and has no scent so it's a really comfortable wear

Right shade

I have combination to oily skin, and I have very sensitive skin, but this pressed powder worked for me. This did not break me out even after first use. It feels very light on the face and somehow controls oil. I have this in the shade Nude. It was difficult for me to look for the correct shade but this seems just right.

Great for combination skin

My skin is combo, so my T zone oiling up has always been my problem. This Pressed Powder by L A Colors has been great in keeping me shine free and oil free throughout the day. It provides additional light to medium coverage which I love. It also feels very light on the skin.

Love it

If you like to touch-up your make-up with a powder without clogging pores or making skin too matte, This is the perfect choice. The super-light powder banishes shine while leaving skin luminous. It does not only banish shine but reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles giving a younger-looking matte finish to your skin. The all-angles twisty mirror is a great feature, too.
