I don’t know about you, but I’m a powder foundation girl through and through. As a dancer, I started wearing makeup for performances at an early age – so, sweat and shine control has always been a HUGE factor when I select my makeup. Because of this, powder is a must! That’s why when I saw that Avon’s classic Mattifying Pressed Powder was being discontinued, I was pretty bummed. Luckily, the newest Avon powder foundation is being launched even earlier than I expected, so I really had nothing to worry about. This new Cashmere powder looks so nice and luxurious that I actually cannot wait until my current Mattifying Pressed Powder runs out so I can buy it – as someone raised to be super frugal, that is saying something!
In the meantime, I at least get to tell you all about it, and I think you’ll be pretty psyched. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the deets!
What is the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation?
The FMG Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation is a new powder foundation product by Avon launching August 5, 2020.
This powder is the latest addition to Avon’s popular Cashmere collection, and also a luxurious replacement for the now discontinued True Color Mattifying Pressed Powder. It’s designed to create a flawless, silky-smooth complexion with a soft-focus matte finish.
What makes it stand out?
FMG Cashmere is Avon’s most luxurious powder foundation yet for a few reasons. First of all, it’s formulated with amino-acid-coated pigments. These amino acids help soften the overall pigmentation and create a blurring effect on the skin. This blurring means that skin imperfections get washed-out, leaving your face flawless and visibly smooth. This also helps the powder foundation control shine, which is super important for any powder!
What’s more, the formula has other nourishing ingredients that help make it ultra comfortable on the skin. It contains Lavender oil, artichoke extract, and chamomile extract – which are all known for their antioxidant benefits. It also contains vegan collagen, a skincare ingredient which helps keep the skin looking supple.
Other Benefits Include:
➤ Buildable medium-to-full coverage
➤ long-lasting, all-day wear
➤ Good for all skin types
➤ multi-use as foundation or setting powder
➤ Can be applied wet or dry
➤ Mirror compact with washable sponge
What are the shades of Cashmere Complexion powder foundation?

What color is the closest to the discontinued light carmel cream to powder foundation?
Hi Sharon, I haven’t personally compared that shade – but I highly recommend using our new virtual makeover tool for shade matching. I’ve found it to be pretty accurate. I’ve created a tutorial on where to find the tool and how to use it: https://fierceandradiant.com/virtual-makeover-shade-finder/
Hope that helps!
I want the original creme to powder back!
I feel ya – the cream to powder foundation was pretty popular! At the moment, Cashmere is the next best thing for people who liked that product.
me too… I want it back… did you find something similar yet ?
As of now, the Cashmere Powder Foundation is the most similar, and also better quality. I understand it’s not the same creamy consistency, and everyone has different preferences. But right now, that’s the closest – especially if you apply it with a wet makeup sponge.
