It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Antiaging HD Micro-Finishing Powder
Not the best
Thought I would try this powder. I usually use Bare Minerals. Discovered I didn't like this one nearly as much. Ended up tossing it out. Sticking with a winner - Bare Minerals.
I usually get this powder in a set, but didn't need another brush (even though they are fabulous). So I opted for this on its own. However, I would not consider it a full-size like the one I get with the brush set. This size is more of a travel size. My brush barely fits in it. Just read your sizes, descriptions, etc. I usually do, but totally missed this one- No one's fault but my own. All in all, it is a great product and totally recommend it.
Only Thing I Use For Foundation
This is the only makeup I need for my foundation! It is a beautiful silk feel and having very sensitive skin it does not break me out. Being 63 and having been blessed with great skin I'm sure when the wrinkles do come this will cover them because of the way it glides on so great. Also love it for brushing on hair and bangs when they need a little oil out, it is invisible! Also love the way it doesn't cake up your skin with bad color! Please never step making, I AM AN IT GIRL FOR LIFE!!!!
This is a must have!
I can't say enough about this product. It's awesome! I use it lightly to finish off my makeup in the morning and it gives a polished, flawless look without feeling "powdery". It feels light on the skin and hides imperfection. Love love love it!
Bye Bye Pores is the best finishing powder I have found. It covers and lasts through the day. It's the last step in my routine. I love the feel and the look! I'm off to a great start each day with Bye Bye Pores!
Worked OK For Me..
... But let me say that I am as fair as Snow White. And when I put this powder on, I think it might have made me ever more porcelain. I don't know how this one color can work on every one. Maybe I'm using too much? I didn't think I was? Anyway, it did help with shine, I think it did help to "blur" flaws in my skin like acne marks. But I think the powder aged me a bit. On the fence about this one. Not sure if I'll re-order.
Love This Product
I have (had) large pores but thanks to some products I found on QVC they are barely visible anymore. This product rocks. I put it on when I am finished in the morning and my skin looks great all day. Unfortunately, my 13 yo daughter found it too and now she is hooked!
Very Matte, and too fine...
A little disapointed with this one. Its soooo fine, it makes me cough. So keep your mouth closed while applying. It's also very matte, so it does not make my skin look pretty. It looks chaulky. Maybe super oily skin will benefit from this. I use a tiny bit and tap off excess from the brush, but I can only use this lightly on the T-zone. Sorry, it does not make pores go bye bye. I'll keep it for the ingredients. I have the CC foundation, and the Illuminating powder, and these are very nice! The CC foundation is GORGEOUS on my fair skin. Won't purchase the powder again.
Best finishing powder ever!!!
Not only does this finishing powder diminish the look pores, it gives your face a smooth matte finish without looking dry, cakey or chauky. I'd be happy with just that, but I got a bonus I didn't expect. When I put it on my forehead, the few lines I have up there just seemed to disappear!! I really couldn't believe it. I will always use Bye Bye Pores.
Preview Your Review
I ordered the super size of this powder but when I tried to put a small amount in lid I had a mess of powder on sink and on floor of bathroom. I really liked the feel on my skin but please Jamie rethink an easier method of dispensing powder in lid. I thought long and hard but I am returning product I cannot be cleaning powder after every use.
Good finishing product
I like this powder. It does give a nice smooth finish to your face. It is not powdery or drying. I only give it 4 stars because my pores do not disappear, they are diminished though. I would prefer it I actually could not see them anymore but I can. Overall, it's an improvement to my makeup routine and I will stick with it.
super powder for very oily skin
i bought this because it appeared to be good for oily skin. i was not expecting magic or to see my pores disappear. i just wanted something that could help me get my oily face under control and help my makeup last longer. suprise surprise, IT HD powder actually DID THAT! really, i am kind of shocked, because it's the FIRST powder that has really worked to keep my oil in check for more than a few hours and at 46 i'm no spring chicken. i have been battling oily skin my whole life.
i apply it over my Hourglass primer and before foundation. that really is the key to this. it helps my foundation go on smooth and doesn't look cakey under my foundation either. then i finish my foundation with a really light dusting of this to set it. the finish over makeup is lovely and flawless. really, it does make it look like my pores vanished.
i work a 14 hour day, and usually by about 4 hours in i am oozing oil from my pores and even the toughest long wear foundation will start to degrade. for the second day using this, (on a day with super high humidity), my shine has stayed in check and my makeup is intact almost 8 hours later.
will i repurchase? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!! this is a HOLY GRAIL product for me. thanks jamie!
