It is possible to have a pressed powder that actually smoothes lines and wrinkles instead of emphasizing them! Resist Instant Smoothing Satin Finish Powder instantly perfects and refines skin with a hint of color. This ultra-fine talc-based powder provides light, buildable coverage for a natural look either on its own, or over foundation.

This pressed powder's silky texture creates a flawless, even appearance by floating over wrinkles and fine lines – not settling into them. It comes with a custom-designed brush with soft, synthetic bristles for use at home or on the go.

Resist Instant Smoothing Satin Finish Powder comes in four neutral shades for light to medium-tan skin tones. It's also 100% fragrance-free – meaning it's safe to use for those with rosacea, sensitive skin, and won't aggravate breakouts.

  • Light, buildable coverage for a natural look.
  • Silky texture glides over wrinkles and fine lines without settling into them.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Beautiful finishing powder
    • This powder is as good if not better than many more expensive powders I've tried. The color selection is small but since it goes on so lightly that's probably not a problem for most. I love, love, love the included brush; so much better for me than a sponge or puff for a flawless light finish or for touch-ups. Of course it can be applied with your own sponge if a heavier coverage is wanted. This powder doesn't accent fine lines and gives a lovely finish. Another PC winner!
