Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Pressed Powder Review

I haven't seen Get Smart yet starring Steve Carrel and Anne Hathaway but supposedly this little compact by Peter Thomas Roth is playing a starring role in the film! Anne Hathaway's character, Agent 99, whips this slick little compact out mid-movie!

That alone made me want to have the compact for all my own. I want to be as cool, slick, and stealth-like as a secret agent with my awesome Un-Wrinkle Pressed Powder!

Yay baby!

In all seriousness if I randomly whipped this out on a busy street in Manhattan do you think anyone would take notice of my awesomeness?

Probably not.....le sigh.....but a girl can dream! Maybe if I take the next step and slip it out while I'm leaping tall buildings....

Oh well we can't all be as wonderfully super agent-like as Orlando Bloom can we? Come to think about it maybe he's not being super-agent wonderful maybe he's bi-polar! Hmmm the possibilities are endless!

Ok, ok as much as I know how much you absolutely adore my ramblings prior to a review...the show...or in this case the review...must go on.................

For starters I can't say this helps on wrinkles as I have none aside from small lines under my eyes however this little guy promises to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, expression lines, and fine lines so if you're sporting any of those you might want to pick this compact up!

At first glance I was horrified at the dull beige color it was! The powder is available in one shade suits all and honestly looking at it makes you wonder about that. I was really scared to even attempt slipping it on my face as it was really dark. Turns out the color is translucent yet it somehow manages to offer awesome coverage at the same time.

I was prepared to be disappointed but I honestly like this stuff. One key point that deserves to be mentioned is the fact that I used it under my eyes with no problem. At one point in my life I was able to apply powder under my eyes without a problem but this past year or so I've noticed that if I do I age myself by about 10 years. This is simply because the powder gets trapped in the fine lines under my eyes making them appear older!

When I applied this I experienced no such problem. The formula is surprisingly light and feels like I have nothing on. That simple fact made me fall in love with this.

This promises to retain moisture as well as set makeup. I haven't yet worn it out but I'm curious how much longer my makeup will less with it on! Since the weather is hot the last thing I want to do is have dewy skin but the "retain moisture" sounds like absolute perfection to my ears for the Winter!

Here's a simple FOTD using the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Pressed Powder, MAC Beauty Powder in Alpha Girl from the Heatherette release, and some lipglass! That's all!

The packaging isn't anything to get too excited about as it's just a simple, slick black compact but it does have a compartment underneath for stowing away your powder puff which for me is always a plus!

The puff this comes with is extremely thin and cheap however it did do a good job applying the product lightly to my face but I'd have liked a bit of a better quality puff for the price of $31 USD.

The contains all sorts of anti-aging peptides as well! Hmm a powder with peptides? Cool!

I'm honestly pretty impressed with this guy. If I can smooth this under my eyes without problems it's definately worth purchasing a second one!

The Muse is definately liking it! Actually it might even have the potential for Muse Approval for purchase...must test more and get back to you on that!

The powder is available exclusively via QVC at the moment so if you want it head on over and type in Item Number A85040 to grab it for yourself!

Tried this?

Want too?

Tell the Muse!

Izzy I saw Get Smart this past weekend and I don't remember seeing the compact at all! :(

If only I'd seen this post before the movie, I definitely would've kept a closer eye out for it.

Oh well! The movie itself was great-soooo funny! You're going to love it!

BTW have I mentioned how crazy jealous I am about the fact that you visited the Lancome company store? I'm dying over here!!

I'll have to check this out; I mean, if it can make me look like Anne Hathaway...

What -more Orly love?!? The only Orlando I want to hear you talk about is the one with Pirates of the Caribbean, not the one IN Pirates of the Caribbean!

Seriously, now you'll have to do a post devoted to James McAvoy as some sort of penance, or Atonement, or what have you.

hey jen!

The press release on this little bad boy had mentioned it was in the movie and that she had whipped it out. I imagine if you weren't expecting it you could have missed it ;)

I haven't seen it yet. It's not my normal style movie but I really like Anne Hathaway so I'm curious ;)

hehe! They have a few around...Woodbury Commons has one too!!!! But they didn't have nearly as good stuff there as they did in the AC one ;)

Love ya!

Mizz Mandy love of my life!

Lord it didn't work that well! Hehe!

You love OB as much as I do! Which is the one with or in..I'm so confoosed right now. What are you talking about?

I like the post about James McAvoy...hmmm I'd rather it be a la the hobbit!

POTC: the Ride = In Orlando, FL.

Orlando Bloom = In POTC: The Movie.

It's Mandy Calc. They teach this stuff at MIT, you know.

No! No Hobbit, No LOTR and NO Orlando Bloom. Anywho, James McAvoy isn't confirmed for the Hobbit.

BTW, who's confirmed to direct? Is it Peter Jackson or Guillermo Del Adorable? Meh, I forget.

I really want to try the mineral sunscreen powder...regular sunscreen makes me break out, and it seems like a nice alternative. :D

ahhhh I see! We should take the kids to POTC ;)

I should study harder as sometimes Mandy Math doesn't equal out for me!

I know but I can hope...I say JM has to be in the hobbit and so it shall be. End of story!

It's unconfirmed as well but I fear that they'll do neither and end up with someone we know nothing about..oh god the horror!

hey sarah!

Mmm..mineral sunscreen powder must check that out ;)

I'm slowly trying to get into the mineral scene ;)

Haha, I don't mind minerals as long as there's simplistic packaging involved. With the sunscreen a brush is attached to the container, so its perfect to throw in your bag and go. Awesome stuff.

I'm trying my hardest to love minerals :)

I'm still seeking the perfect foundation that lasts 24/7 without touch ups ;)
