Product claims from the back label (& how well they hold up):
-Mineral based formula helps control shine & smooth skin’s texture (check ✅) -Lightweight (check ✅) translucent (this product is definitely opaque…) coverage -Fresh, natural look (this gives a flawless look, not really natural) -Can be used alone of over foundation (check ✅)
Pros: -Since this is a drugstore product, it is very affordable at $8 a unit, especially after factoring the amount of product you get! -There is .70 oz (20 g) of product per jar which is quite a lot when you compare it to their other loose powder (Maybelline Studio Fix Translucent which works great for baking!), or any other comparable product that averages at .20 oz. -This is the perfect extra layer of coverage that also works to combat oil and extend makeup longevity overall!
Cons: -The bulky packaging isn’t suited well for travel and isn’t eco-friendly. -The ingredients are not beneficial to the skin. -The formula is not suited for dry skin and works better for combo/oily.

The pencil is not too hard and not too soft- the perfect formula that glides on easily. The color selection is great and caters to warm,ash, cool & all other tones. The tip is fine but not ultra fine and the pigmentation is more on the natural side but buildable. The only downside is the $21 price.
These are the best towelettes I've found that remove the most makeup. It breaks down mascara easily, and they don't dry out super fast. Not very eco friendly, I've found though, so I've cut back on using them.
