Dang, I don't remember the last time I wore Pressed Powder as base makeup. Was it in 1st year college? Probably! I have outgrown this product already because as you age, you tend to need more coverage and most Pressed Powders don't have much of that. I thought that I would never go back to this product anymore until I encountered Pixy UV Whitening Compact Powder Coverlast, a PP that I call "Pressed Powder for adults" because it has very decent coverage that's good enough to address minor skin concerns on grown- up skin such as unevenness, sun protection, and roughness!
PIXY UV WHITENING COMPACT POWDER COVERLAST IN HONEY IN DETAIL
This newest powder to join Pixy's range is makeup + skin care in one. It has Vitamin C and Natural Whitening Powder to gradually whiten the complexion and SPF 20 PA++ to protect skin from UV rays and burning. It has Oil Controlling properties to keep skin matte and fresh. It comes in 5 shades: Cream, Ivory, Natural, Beige, and Honey.
How nice of Pixy to include a separate compartment for the puff. It satisfies the hygiene freak in me so much!
The puff applicator has a flocked side that delivers medium coverage. It delivers the product nicely onto my skin, but I always feel like I'm getting a face scrub when I'm using it. I should get a smoother sponge for this.
Honey is the darkest shade, but it's a shade and a half lighter than my skin tone; I'm glad that it has a yellow undertone and it doesn't look off for my skin tone despite its light shade. It has a smooth, semi- creamy texture that glides on smoothly and evenly onto the skin, but finish is semi- matte. It has a light, powdery scent. Only con is powder is not pressed well onto the pan; I got a nasty crack on it given that it only encountered a light fall.

Honey looks a bit fairer on me due to its SPF content, but in actual, it looks pretty okay and decent enough for daily, casual wear. Coverage is light to medium and it really makes my skin look oh-so-smooth; I even noticed that it has pore coverage! Staying power is pretty great: I could go on oil- free for 3 hours in it; I even wear it to my workouts! I use this powder as well if I want to boost the coverage of my CC and BB Creams.
This powder is great for everyday and for women who like it natural because it has good coverage, but breathable texture; Aside from oily and combination oily-normal skin types, it will work on dry skin too because of its semi- creamy texture; All these for a little over 300 pesos only! With this product, I think Pixy is the drugstore makeup brand with the best face bases around!
