GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder Review - Great for Oily Sensitive Skin!

I seldom hit pan on powder products because I have quite a few (see photo at the pinaybeautyandstyle instagram) so when I test out a pressed powder product and end up hitting pan, I know the product is a keeper! Such is the case with the GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder!

my shade is light beige

GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder Review

I admit it, I have a makeup hoarding problem with a special weakness for face powders because I have combination oily skin. I need pressed powder or I my facial oil glow's would overpower the sun! Kidding aside, let's be direct here and say it right out that even though a lot of pressed powders are made well, some will definitely stand out. For me, GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder in Light Beige is a clear winner and here's why!

Product findings are true to their claim

The product details at their BeautyMNL page says that the GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder are silky and leaves a smooth, shine-free look. This is a YES!

Their claims also say that the GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder:

  • covers fine lines and minor blemishes ---> YES even without foundation because powder has a good coverage
  • has an oil-absorbing formula that can lend a long-lasting matte finish ---> YES matte for 4-6 hours
  • leaves your skin with a glowing flawless look ---> half YES
  • can be used on top of makeup or over foundation and can be used on its own ---> YES
  • hydrates and softes ---> YES because no cakiness or dryness
ALL a yes, except for the glowing part but I guess they mean that the product has a smooth finish. Smooth = glowing flawless skin, gets?

PERFECT FOR: Normal, combination, and oily skin
PRICE: P545 pesos. A little steep but considering the good formula then its fine by me

Packaging looks great and has all the important details. 

WHERE TO BUY: I wish they have this in physical stores too because right now this is only available at the GT Cosmetics website and BeautyMNL GT Cosmetics page.

The compact has a handy separator that is aerated to keep the puff/sponge smelling fresh. I really appreciate that and the good mirror.

The full name of the product is GT Cosmetics Pressed Powder Superior Cover with SPF 20 and they got that right. As mentioned earlier, the powder has good coverage. As for the SPF in it, it doesn't give me white cast.

There are 3 shades only, namely:

  • light beige ---> a neutral light color that would suit NC 20-25
  • natural beige ---> a yellow toned medium color that would suit those NC 30-40
  • pink beige ---> a slighty pink toned medium powder that might suit NW 25-40

you can actually see the coverage in the swatches. I usually use a large powder brush to apply the product:
