Great results over foundation or worn alone, whether applied dry or wet. I have some redness, hyperpigmentation and texture issues and this is quite smoothing. I've tried many drugstore foundations and powders recently and only repurchase very select items, this being one.

I use this as more of a setting powder than anything else, which in that regard I like it quite a lot. It keeps my foundation in place but may start to rub off at the end of the day. The matte look is nice as well. I'm not sure how well it'd hold up on it's own but overall I say give it a shot.

I personally did not love this powder! It looked awful on my skin! It looked super powdery and very cakey! I personally would not recommend this powder, I feel like there are a lot of better powders out there!

I usually really like NYX but I wouldn’t recommend this for light skin. No matter how light I went it was still too dark. I wouldn’t get this again. There are so many other NYX foundations that are so much better.

This powder is such a steal. It's so simliar to MAC's Studio Fix, which is what I have been using for years. I decided to purchase this after hearing such great reviews about it and let me tell you, I was not disappointed in the least. I love that it doesn't leave my foundation looking cakey like some powders do. My only complaint is that the compact is not very deep so you hit pan on it pretty quickly which is why I'm only giving it four stars.

Love how this provides a pore-covering finish and doesn’t crease after hours of wear! A great everyday foundation or powder finish on top of your regular foundation. Definitely recommended this product!

I use this as a finishing powder and I love it! I bought it from Ulta. It’s a perfect size for your bag. I put it on with a big powder brush! It makes my face very matte which is what I like!

I didn’t like this powder foundation by itself. It works nicely if I prime and use some liquid concealer on my problem spots and a few spots on my face, blend and then use this on top. But by itself it doesn’t get much coverage at all.

This is the best and cheapest alternative to all the fancier brands and has great matte full coverage. It’s so affordable and lasts a while. I go through powders so fast and I like this cheaper alternative option for when I don’t want to spend too much.

I was wondering if this made your skin look cakey since it is mattifying? Would this work for dry skin? Thanks!

Im new to buying makeup, I usually just wear eyeliner mostly but i want to try to start wearing foundation. I have oily skin especially around my t-zone. Will this help my oily skin look not so oily?

I'm always shopping at my local Ulta store and I seen this powder foundation around. I haven't really gotten a chance to try it out. But, I am wondering if it actually works and what are your thoughts on it?

Would you compare this more to drugstore brand competitors, or department brands, as far as performance and quality? ..Or, if you have any specific product comparisons, that also works :)

Does this last throughout the day or do you have to reapply constantly??
