    ^^Great idea! Wish I would've thought of that when I used a compact!!

    The same problem happens to me too when I use pressed powder.

    So now I only use the loose powder.

    I've never had the problem with eyeshadow though.

Over time, they get dark and yucky. I try changing applicator sponges every time but it still happens. My face is ALWAYS clean since I only put on make up after showering. Is it my moisturizer getting on the applicator sponge? If that was it, wouldn't it happen to more people? Do I press too hard? Is my face too oily? What the heck?? It has happened with pressed powder forever, but recently I tried a Clinique compact makeup and the same thing. Then my dermatologist suggested I switch to Neutrogena. Their compact mineral foundation does the same thing. It is so frustrating. I try to scrape it off but it doesn't work. Does this happen to anyone else??
    I am hoping you can help me because I love the convenience of the compact type foundations.

    It could just be the humidity affecting the applicator and clean or not, our skin has oil on it. Try a loose powder and a good brush. It looks more natural as well.

    i always found compact makeup unhygienic for that very reason.
    now i only use powdered blotting papers. and this concealer to cover up any spots or redness.

    i avoid using the sponge that comes with it as much as possible. i use a brush to apply.
    if a brush is not accessible, make sure you blot your face real good before touching up with the powder.

    in short, blotting is the key.
