Cons

  • Breaks easily

Best Uses

Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

The powder is great but the entire disk of powder crumbles and breaks easily so product is wasted and has to be replaced before it has been used completely. I try to only buy when there is a good sale to make up for the value lost.

        Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

        Ulta stores need to carry the Fair to Light color in the stores. I have been to 5 stores in my area and none of them have this color.
        I accidentally bought what I thought was the lightest color, but the Light to medium is not. And now I can't exchange them until I can find a store that actually has the color I need.

        Pretty good

        By Kass

        from Texas

        Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

        Does what it says. The color is a bit too dark even on the lightest color but I have this problem with every company except NYX. The How to Use says to get the Ulta Facial Buff Sponge to make this a travel compact but that's wrong. That product is a face wash tool and in no way fits or applies the makeup from this compact. Trust me, I tried. Better off with the Ulta velour and satin puffs.

        Comments about ULTA Finishing Powder:

        I really like the powder itself but have to add that the compact is very hard to open and I also wish that Ulta would've added an applicator. But otherwise happy with purchase.

            • 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

              • 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!

            • 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!

                A:

                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?

                A:

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