      My go to powder. Love everything about this and the fact that it is vegan. Since this powder is translucent there is no trying to match it to your skin color.

        Comments about Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Pressed Setting Powder:

        After a couple hours of wearing make up my skins gets oily, so one of the gals at the store recommended this product. I wanted something that didn't make me look ashy as most translucent powders can do and this didn't. I also wanted a compact that I could take with me to do touch ups and this was fine for that. Must say though I hate the brush that comes with it...absolutely useless. Product helps control the shine.

            I've tried other brands or less expensive. They're ok for all over coverage, but this is the only one to use for under eye. Very little creasing and no clumping. I use it all over.

              Finishing powder, completely translucent. Not made for coverage but great for blending uneven complexion and masking shine throughout the day. Very lightweight, i usually apply twice a day.

                        In my opinion, this setting powder trumps the competition! I wear powder foundation and this blends in beautifully and makes it budge proof. I also contend with dry skin, and Smooth Operator doesn't deplete moisture or settle onto dry areas. A definite keeper and easy recommendation
