Matte Setting Powder
Matte Setting Powder in Light
This loose powder comes in a container that is fairly mess free. It comes in Light, Medium and Deep. I tried out Light and found that even though it looks almost too pale, it’s actually kind of translucent on my skin if I use just a small amount. It feels incredibly silky and smooth. I don’t ever wear powder all over my face anymore because as you age I think it makes you look older a lot of times. But it’s great for my oilier t-zone.
Blotting Powder in Light
The Blotting Powder comes in a thin sleek compact and in Light, Medium and Deep. I tried out Light and it works perfectly with my skin tone. This is a great compact for on the go touch-ups. I love that the compact is so thin and doesn’t weight much.

Total Cover Cream Foundation in N35
Total Cover Cream Foundation in N35
Total Cover Cream Foundation comes in 28 shades and I am using N35. Their foundations come in either P (for pink), N (for neutral with equal parts pink and golden) and G (for Golden).
It comes in a compact with a sponge hidden away underneath the foundation. The foundation can be applied either with the sponge that comes with it, a brush or even your fingers. I tried out the sponge and it’s just ok. I prefer a brush or my fingers I think.
N35 is just a tad bit too dark for me, but it’s nearly my perfect shade. I like that you can build this up from a medium to more of a full coverage. It feels light and easy to wear.
Pressed Mineral Foundation
Pressed Mineral Foundation in N35
Pressed Mineral Foundation also comes in a compact with the hidden sponge. This foundation isn’t a cream though, it’s a soft powder.
I also tried this in N35 and it was just a tiny bit too dark. It definitely doesn’t feel like a typical foundation because it’s so light. But it does give you a lot more coverage than just a typical powder. It gives a matte finish, but doesn’t look dry or chalky at all.

Overall: I really like the feel of all these products on my face. I never feel like I am wearing too much of anything or “mask-y”. The powders are light and fluffy and do a great job of keeping the shine at bay. Love the Blotting Powder compact because it’s so transportable. I like the Total Cover Cream Foundation but I think I prefer cream foundation that comes in a jar better. The Pressed Mineral Foundation is nice for a lighter matte finish.
