|Essence Stay All Day 16h and All About Matt!|
Essence Stay All Day 16h has a slimmer packaging compare to other drugstore brands like Revlon and Covergirl.
The product is enclosed in a plastic bottle which makes it lightweight and easy to carry during travel. What I also like is it has a pump which is a plus for hygienic purposes.

On the other hand, Essence All About Matt! is in clear compact packaging with 0.28oz / 8.0g of product. Basically, it is a finishing compact powder for a matte and natural finish all day long. Moreover, it also helps to blend blush and foundation colors together. And since it is a translucent powder, it is perfect for all skin tones.

It has a light to medium coverage, blendable and feels light on my skin. It was able to cover my open pores but not my dark spots especially on the side of my nose and wasn’t able to even out my skin tone.
On a daily basis, I normally apply just 1 layer of foundation as I still want to look natural under my make up. But for this review, I applied another layer to see if it will able to cover all my blemishes without using a concealer.

And it did.
However, my face feels heavy this time. Apart from that, hubby noticed that my face looks darker and I looked different. I told him that I just used the same foundation and added another layer, methinks its because it has a yellow undertone to it that makes my skin looks darker.

Longevity-wise, I was impressed that it stays and looks great on me until the end of the day. And given my combination skin, it ended up dewy which I’m loving. Just make sure you always bring oil-control film whenever your face feels/looks oily.

Glad I bought these babies because I super love this. I’ve been using these on my errands because it gives me the natural look I wanted. Given its affordable price, this is perfect for beginners or make up lovers with a limited budget.
