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.

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

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.

Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s making a difference... but I have oily and combination skin and it’s hard to control. I use it primarily under my eyes and on my tzone. The way its dispersed from the bottle and the smell are the reasons it’s getting 3 stars BUT THE QUALITY FOR THE PRICE IS THE BEST!

When first using the product it can be a bit hard to get the powder out but once you are done with that, this is a good powder. It does make the foundation matte but not to where there is not moisture left. After all day of wearing it, it still keeps everything in place.

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 love everything about this product except for the flashback and how messy it is. The smooth silk finish and feel is my favorite thing. I use it most over concealer and powder foundation and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. I also love the sleek elegant packaging. The only thing I would change is the sponge that comes with it and would recommend cautiously using it because of how messy it gets. Literally it gets everywhere.

I like this product. It leaves your face with a matte to natural finish. I think more matte than natural though. It’s very easy to apply with the kabuki brush. There is no some production I would recommend this to others definitely.

I have really liked this translucent powder. It goes on really well and I think it locks in my foundation and overall makeup really well. I use this as a part of my makeup routine and really like it especially for the price. I would recommend this to a friend.
