I really really love this powder! I picked it up on a whim because I wanted a lightly colored powder to have on hand because the only powders i have are KVD translucent lock ot powder and her powder foundation (both are amazing). I'm a huge fan of NYX's stay matte but not flat foundation, they're affordable and have such a nice coverage & finish on the skin, (in my opinion I think it's one of the most underrated drugstore foundations and I really dont know why I dont hear or see more people mentioning it or using it) so I was excited about this powder! It's a very fine and airy powder and feels so soft on the skin. I haven't had any issues with it looking cakey or super dry and it really does have a soft blurring effect. I love using this to set my undereye concealer because of the slight color to it and because of the blurring effect. A little goes a long way and you get a lot of product. I don't think this product gives any full on flashback, but I think it does diffuse harsh lighting.

So me and my sister wanted to play in make up so we went and got some things we never used before. (More reviews about that later). So I wanted to learn other basics and got the matte finishing powder by Nyx. I can say that it really did a good job for me. The first time I used it you couldn't really tell that I was even wearing make up because of the balance between my foundation and the powder. The second time I guess some how I messed up because the powder made look very pale. Like it was to bright. But practice makes perfect. Well for some lol. In all I like. Just keep the balance.

This product was a fail for me. I usually love NYX as an affordable brand that offers high-end makeup quality. However, I was not impressed by this finishing powder. The staying powder of this product is lackluster and the Finish is not nearly as smooth or sheer as Laura mercier for example. The powder seems to settle into fine lines easily & accentuates dry areas or imperfections by clumping on those areas instead of blending over them. For the price point this is sold at, you're better off spending your money on a higher-end brand that you'll actually be happy with.

I use the NYX Mineral Finishing Powder in Light to set my foundation and concealer as part of my daily makeup routine. I like that the powder is finely milled and provides a little additional coverage as I apply and set my makeup. It is possible to go a bit too heavy with this powder, which can lead to some creasing, but as long as you tap excess powder off your brush before applying, you will be fine. I have found it to be a great, inexpensive option for an every day setting powder.

If I could rate this negative stars I would... I typically would only rate positive items but this one.... I bought this powder before going on a 7 day cruise, I wanted a good quality, cheap powder I would not mind loosing if I left it behind. Never again... I regret this... It has major flashback which I didnt find out until I went to look at that nights dinner picture. It was so embarrassing to find out my face flashed absolutely white... I baked my face and all
of it showed up!!! NYX, please, please, please fix it! I love NYX and this product has been the only disappointment I’ve had. I gave it a third chance but as you can see in the pictures below it looks very powdery with the flash. Works great with no flash tho.

Horrible powder for baking. I applied this with a beauty blender under my eyes & on my forehead and let it bake for 5 mins. When I dusted it off, there was clumps of powder that clung to my dry spots. It made my skin even more dry. After that, I used it to set my eye primer and there were no clumps but it still left my eyes very dry. If you have very oily skin this might wok for you.

I personally do not use translucent powders because I am terrified of getting flashback, but many colored powders often have too much pigment for my taste. This powder sets my foundation and my concealer without making my whole face one color. My only problem is I find that the whole that the powder comes out of are too big which often leads to powder getting everywhere.

I LOVE THIS POWDER. It is so so smoothe only skin and blends well. This powder makes me feel like I shine and everyone compliments my makeup when I wear this. I have the translucent and banana colors but Banana is definitely my favorite. The translucent sometimes leaves little white patches on my cheeks and people ask me what happened. Will definitely stick to the banana powder for my skin!

I used the product when I was doing a clients makeup. In pictures she looked great but little did I know that when you used flash all the white bloches popped up and made her look as if i threw flour on her face. I was very disappointed in the way it came out. When i tried to even it out it didnt blend. This will be the first and last time I buy this product.

This smells pretty odd. I’m honestly not sure what it smells like, but I got used to it quickly. It applies really nicely, and sets in my makeup so well! It didn’t give me any flashback when I used it for headshots. It wasn’t too dusty, it didn’t fly up my nose or anything which was nice and I think I could use it on my bare skin and look really nice!

My experience thus far with loose powder has been a disaster - it clumps, goes everywhere but where it should, and seems to go on too thick. Any application tips?
