I like the price of this powder compared to others. It comes with a lot of product and will last a long time! It does help control oil but I find I have to reapply later on in the day. I would buy it again it does its job and leaves my skin nice and smooth.

This is the very first power I ever bought when I first started wearing makeup. I would recommend it to anybody who starting their makeup journey. It's cheap and it does it's job. It lasts a long time and a little goes a long way.

Ew! It's a gross consistency and makes me feel oily and disgusting. It could be just me but I really don't like this! I haven't much to say other than the fact that it comes right off, every little bit concealer or not it comes off, I don't recommend this

This loose setting powder is great for keeping your make up on but if you use it in your t-zone and you have dry skin, you'll look super cakey. Its great for the price but that is one disadvantage of it. If you have oily skin it would probably work fabulously

After looking for a cheaper powder than the expensive department store brand I was using I settled on this powder. The coverage is amazing without caking and leaves a great matte finish. It goes on super smooth and leaves my skin feeling soft and not overdone. I would recommend this powder to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative without losing the quality.

Love it! May seem a bit patchy if you use a lot of product! It has great matte finish! It's easy to apply and does need some reapply after a few hours! Overall I highly recommend this product! Maybelline Shine Free® Oil-Control Loose Powder

I really like this product. Kinda use it as a setting powder. I apply it over my liquid foundation so dirt flying in the air doesnt stick to my face. Lol. It also has some coverage so thats a plus. It blends in real well with the sponge it comes with.

This is defenetly a Dupe for the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. Its about &5. pros it can give you flash back but just a little bit, just make sure you blend it really well and you will be fine. Its really thin and its gives you a matte finish. Im already on my second purchase

I've purchased this product so many times.  It's affordable.  It works.  It lasts all day.  It's very smooth and finely milled.  It goes on very nicely when lightly patted into the skin with a dampened beauty sponge as a last step to set your makeup.  It lasts such a long time because you only need a small amount at a time.  This is one of the best loose powders at the drugstore.

I really enjoyed the Maybelline loose powder. I do use this product in my everyday makeup and I love it! The only reason I gave it four stars because for the same price you could buy the Coty Airspun looses powder. Which the Coty Airspun powder is in my opinion the best loose powder at the drugstore! But I still love the Maybelline loose powder!

I LOVE how this covers and seals my makeup, BUT I always seem to get powder on people when I hug them. Is there a way to keep the coverage I love, yet not stain people's clothes? Thanks!
