              I used this product to set concealer under my lower lash line. It works just as good as the Anastasia Beverly Hills banana powder. It is very pigmented, applies easily, and lasts all day until I wash my face.

                • Q:

                  Does the shade translucent also blur imperfections or would a tinted shade be better for that?

                    A:

                    The shade translucent is very sheer and does help to blur imperfections like fine lines and pores, but doesn't offer much coverage of discoloration. If you are seeking a product to help even skin tone and conceal discoloration, you may want to opt for one of the tinted shades!

                • Q:

                  I have medium/neutral skin tone with subtle peachy undertones, according to my fenty foundation (shade 210). Which would be best for setting under eye area and face? I don't have an ultra near me so I thought I'd ask!

                    If you're unable to test the shades in person at an Ulta Beauty store, it might be best to go with Translucent, which works for almost every skin tone. :-)

                • Q:

                  I just like to wear finishing powder so my face doesn't look oily over face lotion. I am pretty tan, and I have used banana before from another brand. Do you think the translucent would lighten my face to much?

                    Translucent should work for you, but to be sure, it's always a good idea to test it at your nearest Ulta Beauty store.
