I purchased this on recommendation from the Estee Lauder Chat Line and I love it! This is the first high end compact that I have ever purchased. Until now, I purchased compacts from the drug store. This is definitely worth the extra money. It is supposed to diffuse light, minimize lines and wrinkles, and smooth skin. I haven't noticed whether or not it diffuses light and I don't have many wrinkles. However, I do have lines and it definitely seems to minimize those and smooth my skin. I love it!
Please Estee Lauder do not discontinue this powder!!! I've used this in "light" for 20 years and still love it. Wonderful colour. Good coverage for such a finely milled powder and a beautiful, glowy without the glitter finish.
After reading many reviews from other customers, I decided to try this one. I tried powder from other brands and would always like to try something different. This one has refill, part of the reasons I purchased it. After I tried it, I found it has good coverage on your face, but if your skin is dry, it can get sticky. However, coverage and even tone of the skin matter the most. In that sense, I would still recommend this to others. If you use it with a professional brush, it will be much better.
I've used Lucidity pressed powder for many years. It's great over foundation. Also - this may be a no-no by some make up rules - I use it alone with a little blush on those days when I'm just hanging around and not having to go to work.
nice powder a little cakey ay first, but I think it was the brush I was using. used the sponge it came with and walaa it came out fab. It does last quite a while about 6 hours before any traces of touch up needed.
I always thought a heavy foundation was the key to "hiding" my skin flaws. Turns out, you only need this light-weight powder. This powder sets your makeup without streaking or caking and perfects the look. So light and silky. Even the compact is beautiful. My must-have!!
I love the quality of this product. Being Estee Lauder, I expected a lot and I got it. The powder works great and the case is attractive but what I like the most is that the refills are so affordable. I'm officially addicted to this powder.
I was hesitant to order this, as many powders make my skin look dry and at least 10 years older. But Lucidity is a classic for a reason. It smooths out my skin, doesn't accentuate my pores, and makes my skin look lovely with just a little concealer and this Lucidity powder. Over makeup it gives me an airbrushed appearance.
This is a very well-performing pressed powder. I bought the transparent one. The only complaint (but essential) is that it should be made fragrance-free. I have very sensitive skin, so I avoid putting products containing fragrance on my face. The fragrance in this powder is quite substantial. And while I love the performance I will not repurchase it again as long as it is not reformulated to be fragrance-free. I give it 4 stars as its performance is very good. But because of the fragrance as I whole I will rate this as average 3 stars as one can find similar well performing product without fragrance.
I have been using this product for years. Recently, I went to a local mall for a special promotion they had re: makeovers. Prior to going, I didn't do my full makeup but, rather, just applied some of my Lucidity powder so I wouldn't look completely unmade up (vanity for sure). As I was waiting to be "made over", a stranger walked up to me and asked me what I was doing. When I explained the makeover, she looked at me and said, "you don't need one:, I attribute this compliment to my/your powder. Will continue to use it for years to come.
Lucidity face powder blends in beautifully without leaving a powdery feel or look. The eyebrow pencil fills in eyebrows so that they have a natural look to them. Love both products and highly recommend them.
My morning ablutions are not complete without the finishing touch of my powder brush. Lucidity completes my look flawlessly. It does not leave my face for my collar and keeps my complexion looking fresh for a full work day.
