    I'll buy brand name if it's a great product. This just doesn't do the trick-even with mattifying primer.

          Comments about Laura Geller Matte Maker:

          I've been looking for a finishing/setting powder and this one was recommended over another by the sales lady. I like it, not sure if it does anything really, and you can't put too much on or it'll white wash you for mirrors and camera flashes. I think it's just finishing powders for me, not sure if they're just a gimmick, this is the third one I've tried and none of them have really added anything to my concealer, bronzer, powder routine. I'm too afraid to keep this in my daily bag to use throughout the day, as a refresh maybe, because it is fragile and seems like it would break apart really easy.

          I bought this after using IT and tarte. And for me it worked better.I have oily T zone with large pores and this made me look mat, not white and smooth for like a couple of hours. I don't expect miracles anymore.
          Bought kat von d loose powder and didn't work as good as this to me. I recommend it.

                  Was looking for a new setting powder and decided to give this one a try. It works ok (much better than ulta brand or drug store brands) but not nearly as well as other premium brand setting powders I have used. I will go back to the setting powder from Tarte. It is a far better product and keeps me matte for a long time.

                      Absolutely! I love this product because it will not add any makeup onto the skin nor will it take away any of the makeup that is already on the skin. It will simply absorb all skin and oil and is virtually invisible. Enjoy!

                      Not at all! This product literally absorbs shine and oil without taking away Or adding any makeup onto the skin. It is a miracle worker and a must have in your makeup bag! Use a slightly fluffy brush and fan it on any oily area. Enjoy!

                  • Q:

                    Has anyone had any issues with this powder lightening their makeup where applied? I would use this to touch up during the day, as I work long shifts, and all white powders I have used for this turn my makeup way too ashy white where applied. Thank you!!

                      A:

                      This powder will not make your makeup appear to be white. This can be used as a mattifyer throughout the day to simply eliminate shine and oil, and it can be used as a setting powder over your favorite liquid foundation. If you have a much deeper skin tone, you can absolutely use this product! Because it is baked and it is so lightweight, it will not make the makeup look ashy if you use the correct tools. I would recommend using a light, fluffy brush, or even a fan brush. Anything too dense could deposit too much pigment on the skin. Enjoy!

                      Absolutely! You can apply your favorite foundation and use the Matte Maker to set, finish, and Mattify the skin. It is translucent so it will not add any more coverage on top of what you already have. Enjoy!
