Hit the pan!

As I was taking pictures for my last blogpost I realised that I had hit pan on my Soap and Glory "One Heck of a Blot" powder! I have a rather extensive makeup collection, and even though it's nowhere near as extensive as that of some beauty bloggers and youtube gurus, I never really seem to finish stuff. I just love trying out new products so for me to finish or even hit pan on something I need to really like it. Therefore I have decided to start this "Hit the pan!" series. Every time I hit pan on a product I will do a little review of it here. So let's get started, shall we?

I have really quite oily skin, especially in my T-zone so I've been looking for a great powder for years. In the blog and youtube world the Rimmel Stay Matte powder seems to be all the rage at the moment so I tried that but it didn't do ANYTHING oil control wise on me and I had to apply it quite heavily to even get it to mattify my face in the first place. Additionally, I absolutely hate the packaging because it's impossible to carry around with you in your handbag, the lid comes off, there's no mirror or anything to apply the powder with. It was just a nightmare for me really.
So you can understand how happy I was when Estée from essiebutton, one of my favourite blogs, started talking about how much she loved One Heck of a Blot. I pretty much ran out and purchased it instantly. I love all Soap and Glory packaging, it's so cute and kind of reminds me of brands like the Balm and benefit a little bit. The powder comes in a lovely little black compact which looks  nice and is perfect for carrying around with you for touch ups during the day, as it has a big mirror and a little powder puff to apply the product with.

The actual product is a very light powder which is actually translucent so it works on all skin tones, although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for very dark skin as it might leave a bit of a white cast. It's super fine, soft and easy to apply and mattifies the skin instantly without looking cakey. It keeps my skin looking matte for about two hours, which is good for me. It should work on most skintypes as I have very oily skin and essiebutton has dry skin and we both love it.
Have you ever tried this powder? What did you think?
