A review On M&S Autograph Pressed Powder

I have been using the MARKS & SPENCERS Autograph Pressed Powder for quite some time now and must admit have developed a liking for it! Nowadays while traveling I'm carrying it with me most of the time as its a pressed powderso there is no fear of the powder spilling out. I mean don't you hate it when you are outside and want to touch up your face and you open a box of loose powder and watch some of it fly away on your face or just spill out!

Apart from it being a pressed powder, the M&S Autograph pressed powder comes in a great package! Its casing is made of metal and looks very royal in appearance and you get a luxurious feel when you hold it in hand. I would say their products match upto brands such as Chanel in terms of appearance and packaging!

When you open it you can see it has a quite big mirror in it which is useful while applying make up or touching up. The inside is divided into two segments. One contains the pressed powder while the other contains a sponge applicator. The sponge applicator is quite good and can be used for touch ups through a patting motion. However I like to use a dense powder brush such as my E.L.F flat top brush instead of the sponge applicator as I find the sponge to be only suited for the midday touch ups. The texture of the M&S Pressed Powder is really soft and silky smooth & the overall quality of this is just amazing!

M&S Autograph pressed powder in shade Medium

The M&S Autograph pressed powder is available in three shades - Dark, Medium & Translucent. and retails for £9.50 at M&S website. I chose the medium shade for myself mainly because it seemed to match my skin shade and added a bit of colour to the face.

After a few hours of applying the powder I had to touch it up as oily T-zone started to appear but then I have a combination skin and guess that's why this happened. Moreover its hot these days.

I think this powder will suit all skin types as it is very fine and not at all coarse in anyway and gives a natural finish to the skin. However, it could accentuate the dry patches if applied too much on the dry skin.

Have any of you tried the M&S Autograph pressed powder or planning to? Please share your opinion with me:)
