With the summer weather settling in Karachi, I know I'll need to change up my foundation routine to suit my skin. A heavy duty, mattifying powder is at the top of my list for summer. With a new range of foundation released by Color Studio Professional, a matte pressed powder is one of the newest face product released. The Invincible Pressed Powder is described as an ‘All Day Water Proof and Heat Proof Powder’. 
The powder range comes in 4 shades including Transparent. The shade that matched my skin tone is Silk Beige that suits light-medium complexion which is a tad bit lighter then Beige- the darkest shade in the range.

Color Studio Professional- Invincible Silk Beige 

Let’s Talk About It-
I tend to use powders throughout the year since my t-zone gets shiny by mid-day, now with the hot weather in Karachi spiking I can never skip out on a pressed powder. I always go for mattifying powders which promises to keep oil at bay for hours. Color Studio Professional launched the Invincible Pressed Powder specially targeting the humid climate since it claims to be 'sweat-proof and water resistant’, the two main causes of makeup melting off. 

The Invincible is a heavy duty face powder since it completely gives a matte finish without looking one dimensional on the skin. The powder has a very soft, finely milt texture that makes application very smooth and gives a velvety finish to the skin. This wore a lot better than my NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat (review) which also had similar claims of sweat and water resistant. The shade Silk Beige has a neutral yellow undertone, ideal for medium skin tones if you are lingering towards the light side. 


For application, the powder gives a slight amount of coverage but not enough to cover dark imperfections- this is ideal paired with concealer if you’re looking to add a hint of color to your complexion. It sets my foundation really well without giving a white cast on the skin that other powders seem to leave behind. The pressed powder works really well when paired with a dewy finish foundation since it takes away excess shine. The powder puff that the compact comes with packs on a good amount of powder, the quality of the puff works really well for setting foundation and visibly reducing the appearance of pores around my nose. I don’t feel the need to use a brush with this since the puff does a good job on its own. 

Apart from dewy foundations, I don’t recommend pairing this with a semi-matte finish foundation since it enhances dry flakes and dry areas on the skin creating a cakey appearance. 

The powder lasts about 5-6 hours before shine begins to show up around my nose which is a good amount of time considering some powders last about 2-3 hours during hot climates. When shine does appear on my t-zone, I dab a tissue along my nose to reduce it instead of adding more product since the tint from the powder doesn’t fade even through the oil while the rest of my face continues to feel soft. The powder feels really light on the skin and doesn’t fade throughout the day even with shine coming through. 

Packaging wise, I really like that the compact comes with a mirror ideal for touch ups throughout the day.
