I got mine on sale at Lazada, and I really wanted to try this for a long time. Fortunately, this did not disappoint. It stayed on nicely on my skin, and even though I did get oils on my face after 6-8 hours, it's still not a bothersome kind of "oiliness," if that makes sense. It just looks like a dewy finish. The powder itself is pretty matte and provides nice coverage.

Great Coverage

Love the coverage on this Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Pressed Powder from L'Oreal Paris. It's breathable even though it's medium-full coverage. It doesn't feel heavy or caky, although be careful when layering this on top of loose powder because then, it can look just a tiny tiny bit powdery, but nothing a setting spray could fix. 4 out of 5

Must Try!

I'm using this in combination with Infallible Foundation. I'm using the True Biege which is great for Morenas and not too deep skin color. I can say that it is better than Maybelline and Cover girl pressed powders, but I love the Revlon Barely Naked more. What I like in Loreal Infallible is that my face is less oily throughout the day which saves my time because I'm so busy with a lot of paper works.

Lightweight and perfect!

My first time to try this and it is amazing. It's lightweight and has a matte finish! Its perfect for the summer. It goes well with any foundation as a setting powder. It isn't exactly a 16hr no re-touch powder but it does take a while before you would need to compared to other pressed powders that I've tried. I use the Porcelain shade and it goes very well with my skin tone. It doesn't darken as it sets on my face or as the day wears on so i think going a shade darker than your skin tone is just fine. I don't exactly have an oily face, my skin type is combination. So most of my re-touches goes on my t-zone.

Awesome powder

My sister has recently been raving about this powder. She told me that it doesn't crease and keeps her oiliness at bay so I decided to try it myself. It is actually a pretty good powder at an affordable price. I have yet to try if it cakes during touch ups but all in all, this earns two thumbs up for me.

I've Used Better, But It's Still My Fave

Although I can't quite put my finger on it, this powder is, for some reason, still my holy grail. I've used better powders (when it comes to sebum-control), which could be really useful for me especially: 1. for this weather, and 2. since I have really oily skin. However, this powder just... looks amazing on me. Although it doesn't cancel out oils as great as a few powders do, it blends with the oils to create a somewhat dewy look. Didn't think I would ever say it but, this product makes dewy sound a lot less scary than it usually does for me.
