What does it do?
Perfects and refines skin’s appearance so it looks and feels smoother, softer, and younger with a hint of neutral color. Provides light, buildable coverage and a natural-looking, refined finish that improves the look of large pores yet won’t make skin look dry or caked.
Collapse
How to use

For brush application, pick up some powder on the full end of the brush, knock off the excess, and brush it on in a smooth, downward direction. May be applied with a makeup sponge for more coverage; wet application is not recommended.

Not bad

    Best Uses

      Unfortunately, this powder just does not work for my skin.
      I tried applying it with a pouf, the included brush, a powder brush, a beauty blender without any success of making it blend seemlessly into my skin. I applied it over a moistusizer and over a bb cream - the result is always a heavy mask-like coverage. The powder gets into my fine lines and makes my face look scary. I will not be repurchasing this product in the future. I will just stick with a high end product that works for me.

      Doesn't come close to Healthy Finish Pressed Powder

          I tried 3 different colors and still no match for my fair skin When I put this powder on, it sits on top of my skin and flakes. The only way I can get somewhat reasonable use of this product is to wear on top of foundation, which is not a daily option for me. I've used Buff Beige HFPP for years with great results. Even the Neutral color was ok with that formulation. Now I need to search for a new powder. When PC discontinues long-lived and popular items it would be really helpful to recommmend alternatives from different brands.

            Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:

            I am 56 years old with oily skin and still fighting small breakouts. This makeup provides coverage even without a blemish cover product and also blends well with my skin tone. In the fall/winter I am fair/med but in the spring/summer I tend to tan easily and I want to try the next shade darker and hope it has the same qualities as the lighter shade I purchased previously. It is easy to apply and I purchased another top product for double the price from Lancome and it doesn't control the shine as well and the perfume in it is annoying. You have a happy customer on your hands!

            Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:

            This is a great quality product and I didn't expect anything less from Paula's Choice. The problem for me is the brush. I find that its shape and size is a big too large. Powder's consistency is pretty loose, so when I swipe the brush over its surface it distributes the powder literally everywhere, on the brush, on the sides of the case, up in the air. Too messy and too much of a product loss hence 4 stars and not 5

              Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:

              This powder rivals a high end powder foundation (am I allowed to mention brand names?) that is so expensive. Paula's powder is the same lovely velvety smooth texture with a fair amount of pigment that adds coverage and evens out the complexion when liquid foundation goes on a bit patchy. Really great. I just wish there was one more lighter and neutral color as the lightest color looks slightly beigey on my skin. It works fine, but can sometimes make my overall complexion look 1/2 shade darker. Not a big deal, though.

                Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:

                I had tried this Resist Flawless Finish when it was first introduced. That's back when you couldn't get even a smudge on a brush. It was refunded. When re-introduced as improved I jumped to try again and I'm so happy I did. Lives up to its claims and I'm very pleased with results. I have the Porcelain and about to try Light. I probably can't wear this in the middle of summer where I live without blotting papers for T zone but I still will be using it due to the fact that it really doesn't settle into lines and wrinkles nor does it dry out my skin. Goes on so smooth.
                So many still asking for the old Healthy Finish but I found it too heavy and shiny for me. (wish I could send all the neutral lovers my old ones) This is truly matte! Love it!
                Doesn't mean I'm always thrilled with removing of old products we loved for something new! I've had my own rants due to discontinued products I loved. That being said.....PLEASE don't drop this product too!

                Comments about RESIST Flawless Finish Pressed Powder - Porcelain/Fair:

                I ordered this because it was the only one available at PC, although I was very disappointed that the SPF coverage had been discontinued. I didn't depend on it for the only SPF, but liked the idea that it was a kind of backup layer on top of SPF tinted moisturizer. "Neutral" in the old product was also a warm, very natural color. I am very fair (Sunsreen!) and so ordered Porcelain/Fair for Winter. Be forewarned -- this color is almost kabuki-white when compared to "Neutral". If I can't find a pressed powder with a SPF, I MAY try this in the next tint up. The case is needlessly large to accommodate a brush. I always press my pressed powder on with a puff. This brush doesn't seem to be worth the space.
