    This is a light powder with a very slight sparkle. It goes on easily, looks natural and is effective and controls shine all day long.

      I originally went in for the IT blurred pores and they didn't have the tinted one. The girl suggested this and I LOVE it!!! I get kind of oily, so this helps keep that down a lot.

          Comments about PÜR Cosmetics Balancing Act Oil Control Powder:

          I like this powder a lot, especially with the pur liquid foundation. I think it controls my oil better than most finishing powders. It applies sheer with no color. It controls my shine for a few hours before I have to blot. This definitely isn't an all-day-shine-control product but in my opinion it mattifies better than other powders that I have tried, which is about a million.

                I have seriously oily skin that can make me feel uncomfortable especially around the time I'm getting off of work around 6pm. I have tried multiple products from Benefit, Makeup Forever, Neutrogena that are supposed to help matte oily skin but non compare to this. It brightens my face and lasts longer than I could ever imagine. I am so glad I found this brand and this product.

                  I received a small compact of this as a gift with purchase and threw it in my purse with no thought. Six months later I am purchasing a regular size compact. I love this for a quick touch up and correcting the shine mid day or evening. It's become my go to.

                      A:

                      Balancing Act does not include an applicator. Pür Minerals recommends using a powder brush when applying Balancing Act.

                      You can certainly use Balancing Act alone for a marvelously matte, all-natural look! It provides sheer coverage.
