My go to powder! Have been using this for 15 years. I hope they never discontinue. Covers without looking cakey. Very well priced and you get a lot of product. I use with puff or a big powder brush. Great for all skin types and doesn't break me out.

It does the job and makes my face look soft. Afterward I have a Matt finish and it does not provide any sun spf or protection. It doesn't compare to high end but it works.

This is the best setting powder I have tried a ton of other setting powders and its not the same. It lasts hours and it leaves ur skin very matte I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a affordable setting powder?

I love this product. I don’t leave the house without it. It doesn’t have a strong odor to it, others I’ve used smell of chemicals but this one has a nice clean smell, and works very well. It is a good way to complete your face

I have very oily/acne prone skin with occasional dry spots. I bought this to use as a setting/oil control powder over my liquid foundation, so that is how I am reviewing this.

-Did not break me out or clog my pores
-Very light, not heavy, finish
-Does not cake very easily
-Did not cling to dry spots

-Didn't help control my oil for more than an hour
-Did not help my makeup stay in place at all

OVERALL: This was not a bad powder, but I would not repurchase this since it did not work the way I hoped it would. If you have dry-normal skin this would probably work well for you. But if your face is a grease monster like mine is, this is not the best powder for you.

I love this powder so much! I don't know why I don't hear more people talking about this because it is such a good face powder. There are days when I wear just this on my face and I get compliments from my boyfriend saying that my skin looks good that day. I honestly really love this. And it works just as good as a proper setting powder. It katto foes immediately but still makes your skin look like skin.

I absolutely love this powder and use it everyday. It's a great price, and lasts a long time. I wish they had a version I could put in my purse. I don't know why more people don't love this, talk about it, or make a big deal out of it because I certainly do. Its literally the PERFECT setting powder. It helps keep my foundation on, controls oil very well, and with the right foundation it will make you look flawless. I can't say enough good stuff about this product.

I got this for free at ULTA BEAUTY and to be totally honest, I LOVE IT! It did not leave me white like the rest of the powders I have tried and it makes my makeup look good!

Has anyone tried this? I'm looking for a loose powder because I'm extremely oily and my skin is always super shiny throughout the day

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!
