17 Miracle Matte pressed powder

It is very rare that I stray away from my Natural Collection pressed powder (I think this is the first time in about 7 years) but when I saw this one on special offer a while ago, I had to give it a whirl.

What the product claims to do:
'Reveal the miracle of flawless skin. For up to 16 hours shine control, use this pressed powder over your foundation for a soft matte finish'

What I thought:
To be honest I wasn't overly enamoured with this product as I have been with others. I didn't love it, but I didn't strictly hate it either.  Yes, it does give a matte finish over my foundation as stated, but it doesn't last as long as it says it does. I feel that a more accurate description of around 6-8 hours would be appropriate for staying power. However staying power aside, I love the packaging. It's really sturdy and judging by the amount of times I dropped it, it seems to protect the product. It also comes with a mirror inside.

17 Miracle Matte pressed powder retails for £3.99 and is available from Boots.
