This powder is amazing! It's so thin that it doesn't make the face look cakey & it really sets makeup, helps prolong the wear of foundation & help decrease oil

I love this. U have very bad redness and rosacea. This covers and evens my face out and does not come off until I want it to. The price is worth the product.

Neat product. Creates a nice polished look to finish your makeup routine. Loose powder is easier to apply than the compact so it takes some getting used to.

I like the tarte smooth operator as a finishing touch! However, I went through mine very fast. It is literally so smooth you don’t want to stop adding more.

Love using this in the summer time! Gives the right amount of coverage! I will sometimes use on top of liquid foundation but I tend to use this alone a lot!

Doesn't have that powder smell that usually floats around my bathroom after I use a loose finishing powder. It also lasts pretty long! Downside is the price.

This came with a set I bought at Ulta, it is a small sample size. I like to use it to set my under eye concealer, and it works very good. Will buy full size.

I love the Amazonian Clay products, especially this pressed powder. A lot of powders feel cakey or too powdery on my skin, but these powders feel like silk!

I love using this powder as a light weight foundation. Might be the placebo affect because only I can tell I have it on but HEY that’s the beauty of make up.

Awesome powder!!! This really does work with any foundation to really set and blend into the face. Makes your face appear poreless! Long staying power, too!

I have a pretty oily T-zone and tend to get cakey around my nose and forehead if I apply too much powder. Does this powder get cakey easily?
