This powder is incredible. It's not as fine as some powders that I've used and I really like it. It applies really well and sets my foundation and concealer well too. I would prefer the shade to be white or sheer but instead comes in a light skin tone color instead. Very affordable for around $5!

I really do love this powder because it does help eliminate a lot of the shine of my oily skin. Insted of my face looking extremely oily it looks like it has a natural shine. Downside is because it is a loose powder it is very messy

This was a decent powder, but I wasn't the biggest fan of it either. It applied nice and didn't look cakey, but my biggest concern with it was that it was such a messy powder and it would get everywhere! I have used other loose powders, but I've never had one so messy before! I will not be repurchasing.

This product is best for setting all over my face. The color makes it a little hard to use to set under the eyes, it just darkens my concealer. I have also found that if applied to thicker makeup it can feel a little gross. I do like it and will continue to use it for setting my foundation.

This was my first finishing powder and I still love it. The tint really helps eliminate flashback, so this is poc friendly and it does wonders for my t zone without making the rest of my face look cakey or powdery.  I usually find this at walmart or walgreens and I recommend it to everyone.

I'm not a fan of this powder for all over coverage. However, I did like using it to bake my face. It worked well for this use. It was a little too yellow-y for my tastes to use for an all-over powder. I recently ran out of this product and I don't think I will be purchasing any more of it.

I purchased this product one day on a whim. I like the price point. obviously is is a drug store brand so it is very affordable. However I do not like that the powder is not very fine. Not the best setting powder I have tried. it leaves a cast. I personally would not purchase again.

This powder is pretty good. I wouldn't say that it set my makeup in place but it does block oils and keeps my face matte. I have dry skin and i works pretty well without drying up my skin. I have bought this 2 times but i don't think i'll buy ever again because i don't use powder any more.

This is a great setting powder. I also really like to use this whenever I bake. It is a great product. The finish is matte. The only thing I dislike about this product is that it clings on to my dry patches. I would recommend this others. Especially if they have oily skin!

I adore this powder. It does a great job absorbing oils so my skin feels super soft and perfect. I wish it came in more colors because I'm super pale in winter and much more tan in summer, so I worry that this will make my skin look weird later in the summer, but it's been fine so far.

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!
