                  Comments about ULTA Pressed Setting Powder:

                  It's ok, I ordered the translucent and I wish I had ordered a pigmented shade. The powder it's self is nice and light but it did crease under my eyes (over my concealer) and cause white lines. I think if I had ordered the light shade it wouldn't be as noticeable. The first time I used it I put it on with a damp beauty blender but it seems to work better with a brush. The beauty blender put on to much product.

                      A:

                      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.

                      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.
