The powder is available in two shades and has a super light formula, providing a light dusting over the face rather than a heavy finish that looks cakey. I like to apply powder using a face brush to get a uniform and light result, but for touch-ups on the go a powder puff does the job well. Although there's nothing spectacular about this pressed powder compact, it provides a nice finish and is comparable to a lot more expensive brands. (In fact, my favourite powder compacts come from Rimmel, Seventeen and MaxFactor!) It does have a tendency to separate easily from the pan, meaning you have to use a brush sparingly to minimise mess and wastage, but this does ensure you get a super light and airy finish. This is a great basic makeup bag addition, made even more appealing thanks to the fact there's always a 3 for 2 in Boots and that Seventeen often launch products with a discount... You can't argue with that.
The Seventeen Stay Time Pressed Powder is available from 19th March priced £6.49.
