The powder is really great for mattifying. I keep this in my bookbag for school, and not only does it mattify, but it leaves you with an airbrush finish.

I really like this product. It goes on nice and stays on. It creates a flawless look. I don't use it all of the time, tarte is a very expensive brand.

This is the perfect products to go with the foundation. Feels like you have nothing on and doesn't leave that weird feeling a lot of pressed powders do.

Use a light hand, especially if you have are darker skin toned. I lightly dust this powder with a duo fiber brush all over my face and feels very light.

Best setting powder I have tried! Got it as a sample in a subscription bag and loved it! It keeps my oily skin under control and feels good on the face

I love this as under eye setting powder. It had a matte finish and doesn't sink into fine lines! I think it would be too drying for all over the face.

I have oily skin and after a while my makeup can look a shiny MESS, but this stuff does a good job of mattifying and smoothing my makeup. I love it

I received this as a sample and can't say I was real impressed... It's not that it is horrendous, I just didn't notice a huge difference on my face.

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?
