Oriflamme can have a lot of affordable makeup products which will catch your eye. One such product is their pure color pressed powder. I have been using this product for over a month now and have quite a bit to say about it.
So the main reason why one would invest in a face powder is to provide some extra coverage and also keep the skin matte and shine free for a longer time. These were my reasons and let me tell you how this Oriflame Pure Colour Pressed Powder fared.

The one I am reviewing is the light pressed powder.
My experience with Oriflame Pure Colour Pressed Powder
The pressed powder is packaged very impressively. The pan is black and classy with all the details mentioned on the back. Now, the main reason, I bought this powder is because it was pretty affordable and is almost always at a discount.
It has very pleasant fragrance and comes with a foam pad for application. However, we all know how useless these puffs are! It also has a mirror which can be quite useful for a close look.
I apply the powder using a fluffy powder brush.
Coming to the actual performance of the powder – this face powder provides no coverage what so ever! I guess this is probably because the pigment is too weak but the coverage is not there at all. It is quite a lightweight powder and is easy to pick up on a brush. I would not say that it looked chalky on my face but it did not add any good to it either.
Like most face powders, it does mattify the skin instantly, so that is one good thing about it. But I had to make this product work some or the other way.
So what I did was, I scraped off the powder very lightly so that t looked like loose powder. Once I obtained a little bit, I applied it to my eyes for baking. I dusted it off after 5 minutes and my under eyes looked flawless! It did not let my foundation crease.
When applied normally, it does not dry out the skin and does not look cakey at all.
In conclusion, I would say that if you are looking for some coverage, then you will not find this product useful. However, if you just want a light dust of color and some shine control then this pressed powder is quite good for its price.
