Small review on IMAN powder foundation

I have been looking for a good powder foundation to wear during the summer b/c with liquid I always feel like my face is melting even with a finishing spray. I also wanted one just to have something lighter to wear  and something quick for days when I'm rushing out the house. One of the products that caught my eye was IMAN's Luxury Pressed Powder. I always wanted to try her products since there's this huge selection of brown's and tans for women of color.

But I guess that's where the problem comes in. Since there's this huge array of tones, how do I know which one will match me? And since the only places that carry it near me are at drugstores and you can't take stuff out of the packaging and try it on. You gotta eye it. When I first bought it I thought I had the right color but it came out hella dark on my skin yet in the compact it was a different color. So I took it back for an exchange. I got the color that I thought was too light but low and behold it was a match! lol I am more than happy with it now!

I did half of my face with the foundation and one half without. This first pic the make up side. Also I didn't use any concealer soooo ignore my eye bags lol.

Gawd I look weird without my gal make on lol Them brows need help lol lol.

ANYWAY!... lol.....Since it's pretty light you will have to layer it to get full coverage but I only had to do it two or three times. I wasn't looking for full coverage anyway, just something that covers decently enough and not heavy feeling on my face. Overall I am happy with it and would purchase another. Although it is a little pricey, coming in at 16.49 but with tax it was 18. I suppose thats not a lot to some buuuuttt I'm unemployed at the moment so any money I do get I save. 20 bucks is hard to let go of sometimes lol. 

I would recommend IMAN's products to other women of color. There's so many ranges of skin tones and different types of products to try. IMAN has bb creams, cc creams, concealers, liquid foundation, lipstick, lip gloss, finishing sprays, toners...etc I plan on trying some other things as well!

So this concludes my review on IMAN's Luxury Pressed Powder Foundation <3
