        I use this as a finishing powder to control shine and give a smooth finish. It does just that. I love it, I have a oily skin in the Summer and this has helped me control it. Definitely worth a try.

          I love this powder. I was in search of a decent setting powder and could NOT find one.
          I have looked at this many times but get turned off of white powders and also loose powders.
          I have tried so many "translucent" powders and they never are. This one really blends away and is so finely milled I love it.
          It sets my make up really well and skin looks nice.
          I do have oily skin and this has help up much better than anything else so far.
          Not a miracle powder but so far out of everything I have ever tried including the MUFE hd powder.
          I will keep this as part of my everyday routine.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish:

          I had very high hopes for this powder. I was looking for a good translucent powder and this one was a huge disappointment. First of all, it is a holy MESS. I wear black to work and I always had to put something else on top of my clothes because it would look like I had just baked a cake after using this powder. The product itself is ok. It does leave a nice, silky, matte finish but after about 1 hour the shine starts to reappear. And don't you dare take a picture with flash because you will look like a ghost. This was a huge pass, after this powder I bought the 'Essence all about matt! fixing compact powder' and it is way better.

              Do NOT use this poweder if you take pictures. You will turn white because of the camera flash. I don't get a flashback problem with other HD white loose powders and i always thought the flashback issue was a myth but it's definitely not. It controls oil well but not worth it since you can't take pictures in it.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish:

                I have really oily skin and hair/scalp. I usually buy the more expensive brands, but I heard good things about NYX. I started putting this on my hair, section by section, and on my skin BEFORE foundation. It keeps the oil away and everything looking fresh, and make up doesn't move. I highly, highly recommend it to anyone with oily skin/scalp. I haven't used it for long so I'm not sure if it clogs pores yet - (I have sensitive/acne prone skin so I have to be careful with new products).

                  from Minnesota

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish:

                  A few friends recommended this powder to me so I thought why not. This is the first HD powder I ever tried and I loveeee it. It makes my makeup feel slip free and my face feel so silky and smooth. However, make sure you are for sure finished with any liquid makeup after you apply this (but lip color will be okay obviously) because if you try touching up with a little extra concealer or liquid highlighter it will most likely cake up on top of this powder. So keep it strictly as finishing powder. My face is an oil slick with few dry patches. Like anything else, if your base isn't good, your finish won't be good. Make sure your makeup is even and do what you can to get rid of any cakiness because this will emphasize it. Oil control is decent but still lasts way longer than my PF powders. I like to compare this with my Too Faced Primed & Poreless loose powder because they do the same thing except I can't use this as primer and Primed & Poreless gives my face a softer more natural feel. But hey if you're on a budget definitely invest in this powder.

                      Yes, this product works perfectly on medium-to-tan skin. Remember that a little goes a long way! It is best applied using a full, fluffy brush like a kabuki brush for light, even application.

                      You may have used too much product. This product is best used with a kabuki brush for a light dusting. A little goes a long way!
