    Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

    I've been searching for a light, but effective powder to use on top of my foundation to prevent my forehead from becoming oily, and my redness from shining though my foundation. Wearing full coverage foundation always makes me break out, so I opt for a light, or a medium coverage foundation but that ends up wearing thin throughout the day. This powder is a quick and easy fix to that problem. I bought a retractable kabuki brush to apply it, and it goes on like velvet. It's so smooth, and it hides any splotches or redness that is peeking through my foundation all day. I love it.

      Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

      Nothing to write home about but it does the job.. Sets my foundation and doesn't break me out. It keeps me pretty matte (i have VERY oily skin) but im sure my primers help with that. doesn't give off a lot of pigment. All in all its not bad for a setting powder.

        Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

        I use liquid foundation and concealer but prefer a matte finish instead of a dewy shine. This setting powder is perfect for that! I got the translucent one since I didn't want any color...just something to set with. I haven't tried the other shades but I really like this powder and how it's compact...which means not as messy and loose powder! Perfect to put on top of a foundation or concealer.

          I tend to have oily skin in my T-zone so this is great to help mattify those oily areas. I tried to bake my face with this but this product just doesn't do the job. Yes, I know translucent means there isn't much pigmentation but this has zero.

              This product didn't set my makeup at all, it becomes all patchy after 30 minutes of wear. I get that my skin is oily, but this product barely worked. Plus it was talc in it which makes me breakout, and is bad for your skin. Don't buy this, it made my skin dry, which never happens. Don't waster your money or time.

                  We do not estimate this, as it can vary so much by individual usage. The packaging is marked with a "period after opening" date that indicates how long it can be used after you first open it.

                  A:

                  You can achieve fuller coverage when applying using the "wet" technique, which is to dampen a sponge applicator and use to apply the product. We recommend the Ulta Facial Buff Sponge which can be dampened for the "wet" technique or used dry to apply Pressed Setting Powder.
