        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.

            I like to try new things...I tried this for a finishing touch on my morning make up, or touch ups through out the day. I don't like the caked on make up look, and this did the job. I can touch up my nose shine and it blends well.

              I bought this product to control my very oily T-zone but after a few hours it caked up and settled in my creases. I also felt my face really heavy with makeup. I went back to Ulta to return it and one of the girls told me that she didn't really recommend their products.

                I don't have bad skin, I just needed something light for a base coverage. I don't like having a solid color because it changes the tone of my face, so I really liked this since it equally covered my face nicely!

                      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.
