        This is the best setting powder I've ever used. I have oily skin and in the summer make-up tends to slip off in the Houston heat. Will purchase again and have back ups.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral ""Set It & Don't Fret It"" Matte Finishing Powder:

        I love using loose powder compared to pressed powder. I bought this in medium as I use self tanner pretty often but it is still fairly dark. I wish they had a few other options for color as the light was super lighter than I wanted. The packaging is so messy which they should update! Otherwise, I like the finish of this product.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral ""Set It & Don't Fret It"" Matte Finishing Powder:

        I have very oily skin, especially in the summer time. I was searching for a finishing powder since the humidity makes me so shiny and came across this. It immediately caught my attention thanks to the word "matte". I was sold after that! It keeps me matte for the majority of the day. The only con may be that it settles in creases but that could be my foundation and not the finishing powder so who knows. But overall, I'm in love!

          I use to use MACs mineral skin finish but ran out while on vacation and Ulta was the closest store. I bought the NYX powder to set my concealer and foundation, it has great coverage stays matte all day and lasts forever!! I will def stop buying mac and purchase this again.

          I use this product during the late afternoon, eight hours or so after first makeup application. It refreshes my look, takes care of shine and gives my skin a nice silky feel. The makeup is not cakey, but, much to my dismay, is very messy as it's so loose. Make sure you buy an applicator to use with it because one is not included. I would not recommend a brush as that is what I bought and have troubles with makeup getting all over.

            This is a nice alternative to mineral veil. You get more product for less price and they are almost identical. It can also be blended with a powdered foundation for a nice, light overall look. :)

              I like what it's supposed to do. It's easy to apply and does give a matte finish. My issue is that it doesn't adjust to my skin color like it says. It gives me this fake tan/orangey color on my foundation. I wish they would make a lighter color.

                    I found this and I really like it. I have oily to combo skin and I believe it helps control the shine. Of course it doesn't last forever, nothing does, but it works pretty well. I like it and it works for me.

                    • Q:

                      I want to know how dark is the medium/ dark powder is. I'm Asian, so my skin is more on the darker side but I'm afraid that the medium dark color is too dark and the medium light color is too light. Which one would be better for my skin color if I don't want to look too dark and fake tan or too light and unaturally pale? Thank you!

                        A:

                        We recommend viewing both shades at your nearest ULTA store:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                        Light/Medium is suggested for fair/light/medium skin tones. Medium/Dark is suggested for medium/tan/dark skin tones. Both shades feature a neutral undertone, so even with the Medium/Dark shade, you should not see a "fake tan" effect.
