My experience with Avon Makeup Simply Pretty Pressed Powder
So, I got my hands on the Avon simply pretty shine no more pressed powder in the shade natural beige. The product has a very mild fragrance which is really nice as sometimes you want to look natural and don’t want the people to know that you’re wearing any makeup. It is completely pressed and gives a matte finish as claimed by the product. This compact covers up blemishes to a certain extent but doesn’t expect a complete coverage with this one. The product claims to control oil which is not true as after 2 hours of wearing this your skin starts to produce oil and it definitely can’t control that. This is budget friendly but gives the average result. I agree with the fact that this product is quite suitable for the Indian skin-tone.
I needed to re-apply the product quite often to maintain the matte finish. I found that I got few pimples on my face after applying this to my face. This was quite disturbing for me as the product claims to be non-acnegenic. I don’t feel satisfied with this purchase at all.
About the packaging:
The product comes in a nice round pink colored container with the product name written in dark pink color and on the back of the container, all the information about the product is mentioned. It comes along with a nice puff to apply the product. It has a round mirror on the lid which allows you to put on the compact anywhere, any time when needed.

Would I recommend?
I found this product quite average according to the price. This is a bad choice for those having oily-skin as mine is oil too and I got pimples after the application. Not a great coverage, which made me feel dissatisfied with the purchase. I would not recommend this product as there are other really good options present in the market in the price below or same as this one.
