Keeps me matte without a white cast. Love the ingredients and love their entire line. Pair with the clean slate pore refining primer for oily skin!

I don't love this, it's not bad but I don't love it especially for the price and the quantity I much rather go with a Dupe and get the same effect.

I don't truly understand the point of this product. I have very sensitive yet clear skin and this just feel like another coat of pointless makeup.

Love this powder for my t-zone! Covers well without feeling or looking cakey. Color choice is nice compared to other finishing powders I have used.

This powder is amazing for the spring and going into the summer. This powder sets my make up perfectly and it leaves the softest feel on my skin!

It's super soft to the touch. I like that it's healthier makeup, but it left me with a big white cast on my face when I took a photo wearing it.

A setting powder that's so dang mattifying I can't even. It's translucent without feeling like you're whitening out your face. It goes on smooth.

Fine for a light dusting all over the face. Do not and I repeat DO NOT use this to set your under eyes or for baking. It has a harsh flashback

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?
