This is my fifth pressed powder. I was using Lakme Perfect Radiance compact powder before. I was about to finish it and as I reached bottom the pressed powder broke into pieces and transformed into powdery form. I have never tried any expensive pressed powders till date. I got the Oriflame Giordani Gold Age Defying Pressed Powder and I was really excited to try it.
Read this review to know why is it one of the top ten pressed powders available in the market.

My Take on the Product:
The Oriflame Giordani Gold Age Defying Pressed Powder comes in two shades – Natural and Light. I wanted the shade natural but the light variant got delivered to me. I was worried Light wont not suit my skin but I was wrong.The pressed powder has a soft texture and it goes smooth on skin. It has finely milled Ingredients which glides like silk.It has SPF 10 and anti oxidant properties.
The product comes in a golden carton. The packaging is a round pan in gold cum white shade. The packaging gives a luxurious feel coz of the gold shade used but it is made of plastic.Nothing extra ordinary. A transparent cover separates the powder and puff. It is easy to carry it in our bag as it is sleek and compact. The lid shuts tightly and hence it is travel friendly.
The product comes with a mirror and a puff inside. The puff is thin and the quality is better compared to other brands.The puff applicator is somewhat fluffy or spongy and not so flat and it picks up the right amount of product. Using a brush will be better option still.I am not sure if the puff will last long and in case it wears out you have to replace it with new one. The brand new puff provided is good.
You can see in the ingredients that there is fruit oil and flower extract and hence the powder has a mild smell which disappears in few minutes. The scent is not at all strong or bothersome.The light version of the pressed powder is sheer and it gives a glow and makes skin appear fairer. It is not chalky or cakey and doesn’t leave a white cast. It doesn’t highlight the dry areas of your skin.
I think the natural version will look skin alike with its yellow undertones. The light version has white undertone. The light version looks natural and doesn’t make me appear like a ghost. The light version of other brands gave a scary look to me.
Trust me this pressed powder is lovely. It controls oil and can be used for touch ups to combat shine. It sets the foundation or base well and gives an even toned look.You may have to reuse this powder after 3-4 hours or after a hour or two if you have extremely oily skin.
The results that I got is satisfactory and more than what I expected. If you use it with a foundation or BB cream; it covers and hides blemishes and marks well. The coverage is only sheer to medium but it is buildable. It gives nice results if you use it with a makeup base or foundation.
The pressed powder is light weighted and doesn’t feel heavy at all. My pores are big and they are still visible to some extent after using the powder and BB cream. To cover the pores completely I think I need a heavier foundation with high coverage.
The mirror that comes with the compact is sized well and it is big enough to see your face. The mirror is handy.Availability online and via Oriflame reps. I can’t comment about the age defying claim as I am not that old 😛
