Love how I can touch up my face during the day and it takes away shine and leaves my face looking matte without adding more color. I'm a teacher, and I seem to get really oily during the day, so a powder touch up is a MUST, but with other compacts, I would find that it looked caked on by the end of the day, like I was adding more makeup constantly to get rid of the shine. This takes away the shine without adding more layers of color caked on...Also, I use it to finish up my makeup routine in the morning because it gives my face a blurred look, hiding my huge pores. I love this product. But I do have to say I liked the old packaging better. I feel like this new square one may be holding less product, but that could just be an illusion..?

I like this!! As a beginner I learned what a baking was and wanted to try it, but was so nervous to mess it up. A lot of powders we’re leaving me dried out, I believe that was due to my application partially and partially the products, but I wanted to try a translucent powder. I decided to go to Sephora and get this and I love it! I put it on after my concealer and it really sets it to last for the whole day. I just use a stifled brush for application and that’s it! I think when it runs out I’m going to try the lose powder; however the presses powder for is easy convenient and an all around great product

STUNNING! I use this for clients when working on photo shoots and you can really tell the difference on camera once this is applied. It blurs everything and it looks so beautiful. One huge tip that I have when using this product is that you really have to be careful when applying because too much can potentially cause a bit of a white cast when using flash photography in a studio — so start with a light dusting of the powder in the desired areas and then add more if needed! There is also a loose powder formula, but I prefer this one because it is less messy and I don’t waste as much product!

I purchased this because I needed a pressed translucent powder for my purse.  While this did a beautiful job of taking away shine it also caused a white cast in pictures.  I later found out this was a problem with this specific powder.  It didn't cause a white cast in real life at all.  In fact it gave a beautiful, matte finish that truly does make you look soft lit.  That said, every single picture I took while using this powder there were random white streaks across my face.  If they could fix this problem it would be a MUCH better product.  Also my powder shattered after 2 months.  I don't slam my purse around and am fairly gentle with my makeup bag.  It still shattered.  This was extra disappointing because the powder was $37.00 before tax and shipping.  That is a lot of money for a compact that shatters after 2 months of use.

Beautiful translucent shade for under eye!!! Does NOT look cakey at all no matter how much i put on. BUT reason why it doesn't have 5 stars is because of flashback. DO NOT BAKE IN ANY WAY. This flashback is craaaaaaaaaaaazy!! You HAVE to swipe up immediately and thoroughly in order not to have flashback. Literally everything else is perfect tho. But for me, if I'm spending this kind of money... it needs to also be flashback free at this price.

Make up forever is my favorite brand out there. This compact is great, it does not cake on your face if you touch up throughout the day, it is really soft and invisible. The one thing I don’t like about his is a flashback - although I don’t go out that much and don’t take pictures with a flash. So it doesn’t bother me as much. But I had to mention this. It does flashback. A lot.

I like this product a lot! It’s invisible which is great it looks like it would give off a white cast but it doesn’t. I don’t use this as a finishing powder after applying my makeup, I use this to touch up my T-zones throughout the day and it works great. I wish it could keep the oil from from returning but never the less it does what it’s supposed to.

I have been really happy with this product. Really convenient and good quality packaging. The powder seems to have lasted me ages, I use most days and I have been using it for 9 months and think I probably have another months use. It keeps shine at bay for me on my t zone, and provides a soft smooth base for my other powder products. Will repurchase. Hope this helps.

I would not normally reach for a finishing powder but I received this as a sample in my last #Ulta order ( yay!). I have really enjoyed using this as a final touch on those special occasions. My pores practically disappear and the translucent powder does not leave any color behind. I do t know that I would pay full price for this product but if I decided I needed more finishing powder, I would buy this brand

If I could give this no stars... I would. I bought this at TJ max...(how could I not) and it gives the WORST flashback and white cast I have ever seen. Thank god I tested it before I actually wore it out. It took all the color out of my face, even using a little bit to set my face. Won't ever buy this again, and regret buying it the first time.

I have pretty oily skin and I have yet to find a powder that will keep me matte whilst I am at school. Reapplying is a bit of an inconvenience for me. Will this powder keep my matte for around 6 hours?
