    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    I got this on a whim 'cos I'm forever on a quest to find a setting powder that doesn't cake up, settle into fine lines, or cause horrific flashback. So far so good--I've used it several times and it's one of the better powders I've used.
    I don't apply it the same way I'd apply other powders though either--it comes with a wee sponge--and you kind of dab it on the product and then dab it into the skin--it really does blur everything out pretty well. I also have very sensitive skin and this hasn't caused any issues so far. In a couple weeks I'll have a better idea of how it works for me.

    Great Coverage for Redness

    By Cherrya

    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    I don't wear much makeup so this is perfect for covering up redness in a minimal way! It also works great over foundation when I do happen to wear it for special occasions but otherwise I wear just this everyday and Juleps Bamboo Mascara which I also love. Have reordered both these products multiple times.

    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    I liked it a first few times, then my skin started getting even more oily then usual. I needed to add more and more product to control my oil. I even got a little bit of break out. Again I liked it the first few times but sadly it just wasn't for me

    Just kind of meh...

    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    This seems kind of flat. I guess I don't really have issues with shine in the first place so maybe it's just not necessary for me.

    This is my RIDE OR DIE product

    By RSlaton

    from undisclosed

    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    It took me nearly one whole compact to be convinced, but this is one of those powders I will NEVER let myself run out of now. One application in the morning controls my combination skin for the entire work day and leaves it looking FLAWLESS (at least in the oil department). By itself, it gives a soft, almost airbrushed finish. On top of foundation it smooths and mattifies your whole look. There's no scent, and a light application will melt into your skin without leaving residue.

    TO NOTE, however - if you have dry skin all over or in places, it will accentuate your dry spots. I've had some luck with applying a very light layer of lotion, waiting for it to sink in some, then powdering over it. If you have very oily skin you may need 2+ applications over the course of the day - the powder doesn't wear off, but it can only absorb so much. I would only stack 2 light applications before starting from a clean slate, but you do you!

    Keeps you matte all day, no caking or breakouts

    By bombadil

    from undisclosed

    Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

    This works perfectly with my foundation, which is just a shade too intense for my personal taste. This lightens up the foundation very slightly and adds a nice blur to the whole shebang. Way better than other finishing powders I've used.

    I'm not terribly prone to breakouts but I didn't have any issues after this. Also didn't experience the caking issue others have reported with this and other finishing powders. I've applied a very light layer with a round brush and just used the included sponge, the round brush appears to apply it more lightly and evenly but the sponge worked fine too.

        Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

        Good finishing powder. There's a little application thing that comes inside of it, and I think it's works fine. I prefer using a brush, but that's just me. It didn't take too much product to cover my whole face. I wore it for a whole day, and it worked well. I only had to touch-up quickly once. Really good product.

        Doesn't work well with other julep products

        By Sammi805

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder:

        First, this stuff washes out my olive skin and creates a ghostly cool toned hue. I wear the julep milk and the 5 in 1 cushion concealer and put the powder on top to set under the eyes. The surface of the compact has a hardened film over the top and can't access the powder. Tried using scotch tape to remove the film and even scratched the top off with a clean spoolie and scraped half the powder into my sink. And with julep's lack of return policy, I'm scared to try another product with them and get stuck with another bad purchase. The 5 in 1 cushion thing is fantastic though.

        I bought this maybe 2 months ago. I use it to set my makeup. It makes my skin look less oily and makes it look great when I take pictures. I love this product!

        • Q:

          Can I apply this to my face after ALL my makeup has been applied(primer, foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer) without it rubbing any of it off or moving my other makeup like the blush to other areas of my face?

            A:

            Yes, we recommend applying with a "stamping" motion, similar to the motions of blotting, instead of buffing. This will assist in not disturbing any layers underneath.Enjoy!
