Review: EDM Pressed Powder

Hello dearies! I know I haven't been blogging much lately. My laptop is still in the repair shop so I just use the computer from time to time. Anyway, let me leave you with a little something: a review of my EDM Pressed Powder. I've been on the lookout for a mineral pressed powder with little or no chemicals because it's hard to travel with loose minerals. Unfortunately, the ones that have mostly mineral ingredients are quite expensive, so when EDM came up with this, I just had to try it!

I've been using this for more than 2 months already and it's serving me well. I'm using the Fairly Light Golden. It's not my exact shade but since MMU is very forgiving, I can still get away with it. I wish there were more shades though. It's more golden than yellow (since that's what it says) but unfortunately, I'm more yellow than golden. This pressed powder has a slightly dewy finish, with a medium but buildable coverage. Let me give a rundown of pros and cons.

  • Mostly mineral and natural ingredients
  • Good staying power
  • Eco-friendly packaging
  • Easy to travel with because the minerals are pressed

  • Doesn't come with a mirror
  • Doesn't currently ship to the Philippines (stay tune for the opening of their Asia store)
  • Only a few shades are available
Will I buy this again? Yes. Finally, I have MMU that I can travel with.

sadly they only have a few selection of pressed powder unlike their foundation shades.

but i still use it as a highlighter & i think its great!

how's the oil control power? :)

Be careful with it!! EDM pressed powders break REALLY easily!!!

They don't ship to the Philippines??? WOW!!! They ship over here to Japan, though!

thiamere, i definitely agree that they lack shades. it's a good thing you found a use for it.

ning*star, it is!

Crystal said...

pammy, oil control is nothing special for me. i still need to use a separate powder for that.

k, they used to ship here, but not anymore because they was an issue with a reseller. yep, the powder looks like it will break easily.

I agree with you, I need to think twice before buying Lunasol hahaha.

Blair said...
