Most Helpful Positive Review Effective Product in a Generous-Sized Compact!!!
I LOVE this blotting powder!!!! I'm 47 now, and need to wear anti-wrinkle cream/moisturizer beneath my makeup, as well as after I remove my makeup at bedtime, so during the day the oily sheen of the anti-wrinkle products seeps through my makeup and I wind up with a VERY oily T-zone. When I was younger, I had oily skin, too, so it seems as though the problem didn't go away as I got older!!! LOL!!! Anyhow, this blotting powder quickly and effectively absorbs oil in a way no powders ever have that I've tried!!!! After you put on your anti-wrinkle cream or moisturizer (for those of you who need to do so), foundation, all your other makeup, and the setting powder, all you have to do is use the blotting powder as often as you get oily during the day for touch-ups. When you need to use the blotting powder, just somewhat firmly swipe the product in the compact pan with the applicator sponge provided with it, and pat it firmly, as well, on your oily spots. Within seconds, and with very little product, your oil will be gone and your face will be perfectly matte again!!! The blotting powder compact is of a generous size, and will last you for months and months because just a quick swipe of the powder will give you the results you desire, especially if you use the patting motion to apply the powder to your face. If you pat it on, as I suggest, the powder won't cake up or ruin your look in any other way, even if you use the blotting powder frequently, like I do!!! So for all you ladies out there with oily skin or who have "artificially oily skin" due to anti-wrinkle creams/moisturizers, here is the remedy you have been seeking for so long!!! I can't recommend this product enough!!! Pretty much a life-changing beauty product!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good Powder
I decided to try Kat Von D's makeup products solely because the products are vegan and I like to support the vegan effort everywhere I possibly can. This powder is light and easily blendable but does not provide a lot of coverage. Luckily, I don't like heavy, cakey powder on my face, so it seems about right for my needs. On a more important note, THANK YOU FOR BEING VEGAN - for caring about our non-human fellow earthlings and for caring about our planet. I really appreciat that about Kat Von D and her brand.

This has been my go to for years! It adds a little extra coverage without being cakey. Lasts all day!
A must for oily skin!
vallygirl76 from Porterville, CA
I have so many powders, lose, trans, compacts, u name it. Been on a hunt for 1 that actually works with my skin, nothing lasted no matter what I spent or tried ! Decided to give this 1 a shot despite my initial thought that compacts were just not meant for oily skin. Well, I was wrong about this 1. Never tried KVD brand ever but I think I'll definitely be trying the foundation now! This powder smothed out my face & gave me a (long time search) matte look thats not flat & not that powdery look, that I've always wanted! Main concern is longevity & does it make me oily cuz my makeup routine is everyday & ain't cheap so that's what I search for. 6+ hrs of no shine instead of 30 minutes, YES PLZ!
I love it
Olive from Virginia
Perfect coverage without being too heavy or cakey.
Great Finishing Powder without the cast!
MussBlue4U from Illinois
This is a great product that creates a sheer, matter finish to your look. The shade Light/Medium is perfect for a wide range of skin tones. This is my go to for my T-Zone! No white cast, no extra product making one look cakey. It's sheer and offers a slightly drying/absorbing formula for use on oily skin. I always keep one on hand and I LOVE the compact-beautiful!
perfect matte finish
Best foundation ever from Philadelphia, PA
Love this for setting and blotting. Works perfectly
It's just meh
HarlowX14 from Sacramento California
It doesn't work for blotting and dumbs down the look you're trying to create. Maybe it works great on others, but not for me.
Beautiful round compact I must say
Erika Dominguez from Laredo, Texas
I love this powder and all the products of the brand complement my look
Lisa from Greencastle, PA.
I've tried a variety of brands of finishing powders and they just don't seem to work for me. So far this one has been great, I wish I would have gotten a shade darker but the shade I bought was recommened for my skin tone.
TiciaD from Oregon
Unlike the foundation, this one is perfect! It lasts hours in the hot weather, and busy working! It even last with a mask on. Color is nice, blends good.
Lilly Urban from Wichita, KS
I love this powder!!!! I have oily, problematic skin and this powder does not make my skin look "cakey" even when I apply it after the foundation. I use this powder to set my foundation and for touch-ups throughout the day. My new go-to powder.
Teetee39 from Panorama city, CA
This is the most amazing powder. It doesn't even feel like you're wearing makeup. I absolutely love it.
Light-medium shade is STUNNING! Thanks 4 creating!
JVD1 from Spain
I am a makeup artist, and I got 4 of this shades:
Although this powders are mattifying powders, I use them as a foundation to make up boys on their wedding day, or boys on TV shows because theese shades neutralize very well with the skin tone of each one, and they contribute quite nice coverage and uniformity! In addition, as they are blooting, they take much time to skin glow! The shade I used to use the most was medium, but it was a little dark.... and light shade is too light. Deep shade is similar to medium but a little darker.
In conclusion: Light-medium shade is the best and most versatile ever!
Great set, a win.

YAY! I've found a powder non caking, finely smoothing, with a delectable matte finish. Thank you! Huge fan

Gfoghorn from Madison, WI
I wanted to love this powder so much. It doesn't offer the kind of covers I was hoping for. As always, the packaging is beautiful. Way too expensive for what I got.
Anjelika from undisclosed
