For the price of this powder, it does an amazing job. I have been using it for years and I will continue to buy it. It keeps my makeup in place all day long. I love how it smooths out my foundation and gives me a full coverage look. This product is great for absorbing oil. I typically apply it with a large foundation/ powder brush. I have very dry skin and this product still works for me.

Many people say this is a dupe for the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and I would defiantly agree but in my opinion it's much better because it's sooo affordable . It is hard to find this product in stores though so I would recommend ordering online . I love to use this product to help set and bake my concelar and it really does the job . It leave my concelar looking flawless and crease less all day . I would recommend purchasing this item

I will start this off by saying that I am not going to pit this powder against ones that cost 10X as much as it does, so with that in mind I gave it four stars. I did feel like the powder clung to my pores/texture on my face and never really evened out. However, after my setting spray it got a little better, so that's nice! :)

I love this! I knew I had to try it when I heard kathleenlights raving about it, and I was not disappointed. I use it to set my undereyes and sometimes my T zone since I don't wear foundation on a daily basis, only concealer. It helps control my oil and doesn't crease or look cakey. I do use setting spray after just to look natural. Try this out if you don't want to splurge on a high end powder like me. It's only $3 on amazon so what is there to lose?

This is an affordable, yet AWESOME loose powder. No matter the skin type. It just leaves a smooth flawless finish. No cons on this one! This translucent powder keeps makeup on all day. And feels light and looks light to! My FAV I keep going back to even though I have MANY loose and pressed powders! This is just, for me, THAT good! #contest

love using this for baking! really great translucent power for being really affordable! it doesn't have a flash back unless you add too much ! it would be better for dry skin than oily skin because for oily it doesn't last as long but overall great powder !

I do really like this powder! I bought this on a trip when I forgot to pack my makeup bag, and couldn't spend a lot on a backup powder. It's super affordable and comes with so much product.

I apply this to my face with a fluffy powder brush. It does get a bit messy and tends to spill out when I take the lid off and put it back on, but that's my only real drawback.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone on a budget or just starting out with makeup!

Love this powder! Extra affordable, I bought it in translucent so it doesn't add any color and it doesn't make me look dry or cakey, the packaging can make using the product a little messy since the holes in it release a lot of product but i don't see it being a problem unless you take the powder with you in your makeup bag on the go or something.
It doesn't have a particular smell or anything and it gives my makeup a nice smooth finish !

Review for: Translucent more...
Pros:
- Cheap!
- Stays on all day
- No formaldehyde based preservatives
- No shimmery/sparkle components
- Doesn't make me break out!
- Huge container sizes

Cons:
- Container has holes to dispense powder that are pretty large. This makes it easy for too much to end up in the top compartment and spill out. You'll figure out a method to minimize this, but be warned!
- Coverage is somewhat minimal. I suggest combining this with a BB cream or primer to help cover imperfections if needed

I thought this powder was the "it" product since I couldn't find anything else available that was low price. This product is cheap. Very cakey for my skin. Hard to get out of the separator. And very messy.

I was using the NYC translucent powder but it looks like they're no longer selling makeup. Does anyone know of a good drug store loose translucent powder? I want the Laura marcier powder but I can't afford that. NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
