    Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

    This setting powder is perfection. I'm an older woman and sparkle enhances wrinkles, there is NO sparkle in this which makes it perfect. It does exactly what it should do sets your make up and gives a slight blur to wrinkles and flaws.

      By Chris

      Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

      I love this Ulta brand banana powder! I have never used a banana powder before as I didn't really think it would do well on my skin tone darker skin tone with olive/ pink undertones. But this works amazing. I actually put a little on after my primer. I put my foundation powder or liquid on after. Then I lightly dust a tad bit ulta skin tone setting powder. It didn't look caked at all. I normally have to use oil blotting sheets before using this product. But after using it I haven't touched one sheet! I will continue using this product. It does make the spots I put it on a little lighter or highlighted and very smooth. Doesn't look ashy at all.i am not sure about flashback but I will update this review.

        I like this setting powder...I have been in the process of trying to find a good setting powder without spending a ton of money....tgis one works really well for me. I have really oily skin. I have a couple fine lines under my eyes and this helps my foundation/concealer mot crease. I recommend this to anyone with oily skin it helped my foundation stay matte longer than without it.

          I use this product to set my make up. It stays on and is inexpensive compared to a big bottle of loose powder and it takes less than loose powder to actually set your face and that means it will last longer.

              Great product at a fraction of the price of the prestige brands. I had used IT Cosmetics' Bye Bye pores in the past, but decided to give this a try since it was half off (so $5). Works just as well, at about a sixth of the price. Will definitely be using in future!

              • Q:

                Does the shade translucent also blur imperfections or would a tinted shade be better for that?
                Asked on 1/30/2018 by Faith from Houston, TX

                1 answer

                • Staff Expert

                  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!

                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. :-)
