    "I have a very dry face so I don't usually set my makeup because when I do it's CAKEY & FLAKEY AF 😭! My foundation will look patchy and scaly, and it's just very hard to manage especially when i'm at school, i cAAAaan't even! I've been looking for the best drugstore setting powder for dry skin, and this one takes the win for me. The highlighter part of this powder makes me look dewy instead of dry and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. "

    "Sometimes when I go out I always forget to bake my face it's SUPER annoying. My makeup won't even last till noon since my face is very oily so i rlly need a powder for baking. I think covergirl professional loose powder is the best drugstore powder for oily skin, now my makeup can last a day with minimal touch ups given that i'm in an airconditioned area "

    "I rarely wear makeup, but i do apply from time to time depending on the occasion. But the problem is after a while, like 6 months, it get expired and i've only used it like 10 times. I'm interested in this because It lasts longer than most brands."
