    Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

    Didn't really do much for my makeup or skin, my skin was super oily about 3 hours after applying it. Setting it for makeup was OK but it clumped a little around my eyes halfway through the day. I used a powder brush to spread it & apply it on, but still didn't understand why it would clump or not at least combat a tiny bit of oil on my face.

      Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

      I use banana powder to cover up my dark circles after applying the rest of my makeup. I had been using one from my ipsy bag for a while and that one was a little more pigmented, so I had to apply a lot more of this one to get the same results. I would definitely buy again though because it is such a great price.

                      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.

                      Either shade would work for you! If you need to correct any redness, Banana is awesome. :-) Translucent applies invisibly, so it's a great option for all skin tones.
