This is a decent powder foundation, although it’s my first one and I have nothing to compare it to. It evens out my skin tone, isn’t cakey, stays on without needing touched up for a while (6 hours) but my skin is super oily too. I’m gonna try others once this one runs out but if this was the only one I could ever use I’d be okay with that.

I never really understood the concept of powdered foundation, as someone with combo-skin. 

I feel like powder always sticks to my skin weirdly, but I did give this a shot (courtesy of my playbox) and it wasn't bad. 
I felt like it looked a little lighter than what I'm used to and building it up just feels like weird. It did work wonders on my oily parts and shiny parts my face so what I've learned to do now is use a foundation which goes well with all of my skin. then use this kind of at a setting powder (lightly), or touch up the oily parts with this powdered foundation

@ $20 I'd consider this affordable. It's typical Sephora packaging, which always looks good.

Review for: SEPHORA COLLECTION Matte Perfection Powder Foundation more...
Received this in my Play bag. Actually had high hopes for it, but it was a total disappointment. The powder is soft and imparts a bit of a glow to the skin, but it otherwise has no coverage/color. I initially thought the lack of coverage might have been because it was close to my skin tone, but no, it has NO COVERAGE. Not even light coverage. It's more like a finishing powder, though I doubt it will help me actually stay matte through the day in summer.  NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation does better is and around half the cost. Interestingly enough, I have found it useful for touch ups: no color but helps reduce shine, but still, don't waste your money.

I have never found a powder with such a light and natural finish! I have very fair skin, so I don’t like wearing too much on my face, but this is perfect. I was introduced to this Sephora powder by one of the associates in store, and I have never switched since. I don’t think they sell this matte powder anymore, but I could be wrong.

This is a great tool to build up! I usually put it on top of my liquid foundation and it sets beautifully. One downside is that if you have oily skin then it will smear off over time but I would definitely recommend this foundation as a lighter coverage option!

Still use this to this day and it’s the bomb. Literally makes my face look great. I don’t care if this is $20 for one, I will keep buying them because they have the perfect tone that matches my tone and I’ve been loyal to this stuff for a lonnnnngggg time.

I got a sample on my Play! By Sephora beauty bag. I was super impressed by it. It really left my skin matte (Tzone) longer than I expected. It is comfortable and didn’t dry out my skin. Great product!

Review for: 06 Warm Porcelain more...
I have been looking for an alternative to my M.A.C StudioFix powder, and this product has definitely given M.A.C a run for their money. I appreciate that the lightest shade is both pale enough and in a neutral undertone, and the coverage is fantastic. The powder does tend to give a lot of kickback when dipping my brush in it and that does concern me for its longevity, but the product performs very well and I am still able to collect any excess powder around the rim of the compact itself. This powder is definitely up there on my list of faves.

This review is for neutral sand.
I tried this foundation alone with only moisturizer and primer on my face. To me, it was alright. I felt like it clung to my dry patches and into little lines on my face that I didn’t even knew I had. After wearing it for a couple of hours it felt like it was melting on my face, felt heavy. Took my makeup off the minute I got home from work.

Tried this over a liquid foundation and liked it a lot better than by itself.

This powder foundation is awesome. I was using lots of heavy liquid foundation to cover up my vidaligo but then I discovered this. Mixed with one or two other shades my complexion is perfect. It doesn't feel heavy. Feels right.

What’s a good powder foundation? I have combination skin and not as dark as my picture. I was looking at SEPHORA COLLECTION Matte Perfection Powder Foundation. What do you think?
