Review: Sephora 8 Hr Wear Mattifying Compact Foundation Powder in #24 Medium

Hi Glamifys,

Recently went over to Sephora and picked up their 8 Hr Wear Mattifying Compact Foundation Powder in #24 Medium. It retails for SGD 19 and since I had a 10% discount, I paid SGD 17.10 for it.


First impressions are that the packaging is sleek, handy to carry around, comes with a sponge in case you need to apply it on the go, nice big mirror included and the powder is so smooth and fine.




For SGD 19, I think it’s a pretty good deal too.

So on to what the product claims.. “8 hour wear” … wouldn’t say that it last 8 hours for me though. (more like 4 hours probably which is pretty good given that Singapore is so humid at the moment and my face gets really oily)


It stays on longer than other powders do like Bobbi Brown Compact Powder Foundation or Bourjois Healthy Balance powder

It comes in many shades and also comes with yellow or pink undertones. If I am right, the even numbers are yellow and odd are pink.

The texture of the powder is velvety soft. Reminds me of the compact powder by Benefit (at a third of the price of course). The finely milled powder did not settle into fine lines as well. You can either use a brush to buff it in or the sponge provided. I prefer the sponge to press on the powder to set my makeup.

If you are going for the dewy look, this powder is not for you. :p

The powder blends very easily too. No effort needed which is an absolutely love!

While it mattifies the oiler parts of the face, it did not make my face cakey or flaky on the drier parts of my face. Very happy with the overall coverage and texture.

Will definitely repurchase this since it is affordable and keeps me matte longer than the rest of my powders.
