Thos product is really good!! Ot really really helps control the oil on your face. Sometimes when I don't wanna ise makeup I just use it alone to control the oil on my face and specially on my nose. It gives you that nice matte look. I had just ran out and I caught it on sale on the Sephora website for $7!!! Actually I bought 2. My husband has a big problem with oil on his face so I gifted him one of this translucent powders and he loves it cause ot keeps the oil pn his face under control

It's currently on sale at Sephora. Grab it now before the price goes back up. For a Sephora brand setting powder it is definitely premium quality. It's a loose powder with an un-tinted color and a satiny finish. It works well for all skin tones as it's a very light and sheer powder. As long as you use the right brush you will get a very nice softened matte look. There is no shimmer or anything else but it blends very nicely and helps your look stay together longer. It also works well for re-touching if you get a little oily.

This poder does well for baking but can be drying. If you look in my picture, the bridge of my nose is very dry and textured but my under eye looks seamless. I don't get any white cast or anything strange with this so I just use it under my eyes only and enjoy using it. The case is nice if you flip it upside down and tap the top down so that the podwder falls out onto the mirror. Using it the way you're supposed to takes forever and you never get enough to bake with.

Eh. This item is okay. It gets the job done as far as setting your make up however u do have to make sure you brush it away well with a face powder or you will have a flashback. Also the packaging is NOT GOOD. Its a small hole that the powder comes out of and u have to close it and shake it over and over to complete full face (bake or just press into skin)

I don’t really use translucent powder everyday but when I do use it I use it for special occasions or if I want to post a hot selfie and I want my makeup to look glam and in tact. It has a matte finish which I love because I don’t want to look sparkly. I’ve bought this product so many times because of how perfect it is. So I definitely recommend.

I really like this product. Its very easy to apply, leaves my face feeling soft & it does tend to look a bit whiter which I don’t really love but it’s okay. It’s lasted me a couple of months and the price is fair. I only gave it 3 stars bc it does tend to fade away so it doesn’t set my make up for too long. I didn’t try re-applying just because it makes my face look white and I’m tanned 😅 if you’re a beginner like I am and are trying out different setting powders id say it’s a good idea to start off with this one or anything similar.

I really like this powder. Its been awhile since I've used it but i know my makeup always stayed in though the day despite what brands i was using underneath. I do know that I wait to do my mascara until afterwords and I would recommend that to others as well.

NOOOOO. This has horrible flashback!!! I used this to set my makeup for a wedding and when the pictures came back my under eye and certain parts of my face were lit up!!! I have NEVER touched this product again!!! Only 1 picture came back nice for the bride from her photographer and that was because the FLASH was off!!! 😣

I just starting using this setting powder and I love it! I didn’t use setting powder much before, but I do notice my makeup stays in place longer than it normally would! I would highly recommend this to others.

It is somewhat good, if you don’t have anything else to use you could use this. To me the flash bounced on it and left me looking like a ghost, mad pale and white. Not good to bake
