Most Helpful Positive Review The Best finishing powder on the planet!
As far as finishing powders go I usually would use mineral veil from Bare Escentuals. I decided to buy this in the holiday gift pack along with the photo finish primer and the matte spray. Well the other two were good, but, THIS product right here is phenomenal!! Never have I ever had a finishing powder that has KEPT my face oil and shine free all day like this powder has. I am so glad I got that set just for this product right here. I am so please with it. Finally I can go around not wondering if I look like I ran a mile in less than 15 secs and looking a hot mess. This is definitely something I will continue to buy in the future and I definitely recommend this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Good for Those with Deeper Tones
I'm more in the golden/olive skin tone and I bought the banana powder because I enjoy a good brightening powder. When I first tried it I loved it, but it's just way too light. I'd say if your darker than the general "light" shades you won't get much use out of this powder. It looked way too unnatural on my complexion and with the camera flash it gave an uncomfortable amount of flashback. I would recommend the NYX #NoFilter finishing powders since they have a much greater shade range and they're really good over this. This isn't a bad powder, it has a lot of good qualities to it, if NYX added a medium and deeper toned yellow to the collection then maybe then I'd consider it again.

The mint one has NO color correcting effect and I have a lot of redness.... The powder is VERY mattifying so if you have combo skin or dry skin make sure to use a good moisturizer before applying otherwise you will be flaky looking. I also noticed it makes my pores more noticeable. I don't think this product is worth trying honestly.
I would buy again...
Angie from Va
Great finishing look
Gemly98 from Dallas, Tx
Wouldn't really suggest this for anyone that has anything but a normal skin type and skin lighter than someone like.. Cardi B or something. Kinda cast-ish, kinda drying despite it not keeping ur makeup in place... very meh. Wouldn't get it again.
HD finishing powder
Tee from PA
Using on face after foundation. Good texture. Great color. Myself and my daughter love this product.
LP from Sherman Oaks, CA
I needed hi-def finishing powder for on-camera work, and it was my first time trying this product. I couldn't leave the house, so ordered online and asked a friend to pick up. Three of us tried to open the container to access the powder without success, all the while some of it was spilling out the sides, creating a mess. Inside, much of the powder was caked. I never would have bought this in-store. Money completely wasted.
Nicole from St. Louis
This is my favorite powder. I use the translucent to bake and my makeup stays. It also brightens. I have tried many other powders and this is my fave.
Beautyshopper from Salt Lake City
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! The best finishing powder I used makes your application and concealer look smooth and filter like coverage. Buy it and u won't regret it
Great as a mattifying powder
CC from Chicago
Gets rid of any shine
This is what I've been searching for forever!
alohanailgirl from Beaverton, Oregon
I have been looking for the perfect powder to put it all together. This powder makes my face look flawless
Used under eyes, don't recommend
Mel from CA
I don't care for this product
Rikki from Tacoma, WA
It's a pretty good color, and I like it. The application is more difficult without making a mess as it arrived completely smashed. I used a blender to try and push it back down and compact it but...crumbs everywhere.
Big brand coverage without the price
Momof2plus1 from Washington
Great setting powder at an affordable price. It's definitely a staple item that I will keep on hand
Lexi from Bettendorf
I have the white powder (don't get it if you are tan or darker go for banana or the other shade then) because I'm the same color as it. It does get rid of oil and makes it not shine. I only apply two or three times a day (school/work so about 14-16 hours a day) I have an oily T-zone so that's why and this really helps me not blind people with my face oils.
So smooth and brightening (Banana Powder)
Sam from Orange County, CA
I've been using the banana for YEARS now and I never set my under eye concealer with anything else. It's such a great brightener and makes your under eyes (and the rest of your face if you use it elsewhere also) look nice and smooth. It mattifies, but is not cakey at all. Highly recommend the Banana shade.
Shanny from MI
I have combo/oily skin in my T-zone & cheeks. I do a light dusting with this after my primer before applying my foundation & helps keep my oils at bay an extra 3-4hrs on my 10hr make-up days! Also use it as my daily for days I don't do a full face & just prime/powder, good for the price & doesn't make me look cakey!
pops from michigan
the "translucent" one is opaque enough for me that i used it for clown makeup. anyone asian/tan with warm undertones dont buy the translucent one, god
Iteachkiddos from San Diego
I returned this shade it made me look ghostly. The translucent works much better.
Iteachkiddos from San Diego
I had to return and get the translucent because all other shades made me look stark white or too dark. My face shines after a couple hours, but I have oily combo skin.
Been using for years
Noor from Texas
I've been using the translucent one since high school and honestly no other powder I've tried comes close. I always come back to this one. I also have oily skin so it can be hard to keep everything set and in place. I love this stuff and I'm a lifetime fan of it!
WHITE AS A GHOST.
Aphrodite.Ladyy from San Diego, CA
I bought this as a finishing powder to set my makeup. I wore this to a festival and stayed beautifully EXCEPT the flashback in the photos was horrible. I checked the photo and looked like a GHOST. I have Asian/ warm/yellow undertones and thought translucent would be better than having a mismatched powder. Sorry, but I won't be buying again :(
Best finishing powder
kara from Sacramento
Love this finishing powder, good price, lasts for good amount of time, smooths out face, extends makeup wear time, good for summer & gym,
Best affords finishing powder
Adri from San Jose
This is one of the best finishing powders that don't give a flashback on pictures and reduces pores! Leaves your skin looking matte (if you're into that type of look). A little powder goes a long way.
Will get again and recommend for a friend
Ro from Auburn Hills, MI
Works great, good coverage without changing the color of foundation. Great price not to expensive and last for most of the day with combination skin
Kat from Greenville, SC
I've wanted a translucent powder for a while. I haven't used this for setting makeup full makeup as originally intended, but I've used it in the summer.
This is a great powder to layer over a mineral sunscreen and tinted moisturizer to reduce shine in the summer months. You'll have to reapply after a few hours if you sweat, but I like the finish. It's light and still let's your skin glow. Also wears well over powder highlighter. And yes it's actually translucent.
Quick Fix but not super long lasting
Oily skin types beware from Smyrna, TN
It is a very easy to apply product that is a quick fix for us girls with oily skin. I wanted to love it BUT i found that as i wore it throughout the day it would settle into creases making a Cakey appearance. Not to mention i was still oily. I used a primer before foundation, concealer and baked my face with the product... same result. If there was a way to ensure the product would actually stay put throughout the day I would absolutely buy this again
