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'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 absolutely love this powder. My skin is more on the dry side so I can't speak much for our control, but I love using this to set foundation. It also works really well to cover up a foundation or concealer color that may not go very well together. I haven't had any problems with flashbacks and at the price, this product is quite impressive.

I find that this casts grey on me, and am always self conscious about it. As far as it being oil control, I don't know that I would say all that, but I may be using it incorrectly. It sets me with little to no creasing and I find it to be a great powder. Not to mention, it lasts forever; the product, not the oil control for me, I mean.

I like to use the loose powder instead of the pressed powder. Ive noticed that pressed powders make my skin peel and loose doesn't. So with this Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Loose powder, I like that it helps control the oiliness. I already have enough of that. I recommend this product to anyone who have oily skin and needs help controlling it.

Maybelline's perspires one of my favorite app onto these in this is my extra one if you never tried it you have to it keeps your make up on it's one of the best ones that I think I have her hat used I think the con would be if you have really dry skin you probably don't want to use it

This is the setting powder I use every time I do my makeup if I have it. It is extremely easy to use. I use a lot, but that's just me. It's hard for me to get it to come out sometimes which is a little frustrating but the quality of the powderived makes up for that. It's good for my undertone, but for others it may look a little weird.

This is the perfect finishing touch for my makeup, I didn't think much of it when I bought it because of the basic packaging, but I am in love now. It smooths everything out and keeps my skin from getting oily, even in warm or humid weather. It does have a slight tint so I use it sparingly so I don't end up with a caked-on finish.

I use this to set my foundation. It does the job, however it doesn't last long. There are only three color choices which makes it a little hard with season/skin tone changes. I'll purchase again until I can find a good replacement

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!
