I was hunting for a good powder that won’t settle into the lines and also absorb oil. I got this compact powder to set my under eye concealer, but since it’s a very lightweight and non-cakey, I use it all over my face. I have never used a BH Cosmetics powder before. I purchased this on a whim to carry in my handbag. I have since ditched my old pressed powder and replaced it with this one. Let’s see how this one fared for me.

The outer packaging is the exact dupe of MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation – arrives in a black matte compact. I like that these powders are super affordable, come in a sturdy, travel-friendly compact with a sponge and a mirror.
The powder is too soft to touch and has a very fine texture. It gives light to medium coverage, and if I want more coverage, I use the sponge instead of a large powder brush. It gives perfect finish without looking cakey.
My Experience with BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder:
Nothing is better than the easy-to-use compact powder that you can keep in your bag and use for touch-ups whenever necessary. It can be applied with a large powder brush or the sponge given along with this product. You use the concealer/foundation palette for spot correcting and then apply a layer of the powder and look like you applied an expensive foundation.
The powder doesn’t make you look too powdery, provides light to medium coverage, keeps shine/oiliness at bay for almost 4 hours. I really don’t need the coverage of a typical foundation on an everyday basis – just a little powder to mattify and even out my complexion a bit. This powder does that well. My T-zone experienced slight breakthrough 3 hours later, but that’s expected if we see the weather conditions right now.
It feels like I’ve found a dupe of the much expensive MAC Studio Fix Powder. The texture and the performance are exactly the same. The powder is available in 7 shades. I’m NC25 in MAC and 215 is a perfect match for me. I wear a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer as my everyday routine and this adds that perfect finishing touch. Highly recommend this product! Also, for very oily skin, this product would be a blessing if used as a medium coverage foundation. Overall, the price is good considering the quality of the product.
Pros of BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder:
• Travel-friendly compact
• Applies smoothly
• Doesn’t look cakey
• Absorbs excess oil
• Brightens up the complexion
• Suits sensitive skin
• Perfect powder for everyday use
Cons of BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder:
