Most Helpful Positive Review Best finishing powder for the price
This is my favorite drug store setting powder. Goes on smooth, controls shine and keeps my foundation on all day. I have repurchased this item several times and love it!
Tip: When opening, instead of peeling back the entire sticker and exposing all of the holes to the product, I use a razor blade and cut it, exposing only 3 of the holes so the product doesn't get all over in the lid when its in my makeup bag :) See blow image
Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible White Cast
Firstly, I have tons of NYX makeup...in fact, it's my preference.
So I was super excited and anxiously waiting for this finishing powder...only to end up super disappointed :(
When I initially tried this powder I thought it was my camera...I normally wear makeup when I go out on the weekends etc. So basically mostly at night.
Upon taking a pic to send to my friend I couldn't get a pic that didn't have a ghost face.
So I brought the powder to work to give it another try during the day time.
Just awful! If I cannot take a picture with flash while wearing this finishing powder then it's safe to say the powder is useless.
I should be able to use this powder day, night, without flash, and with flash.
I've included tons of pictures taken inside of my office.
Notice there's a huge window so plenty of natural light comes into my office.
So very disappointed NYX! :(

I really gave him many opportunities but he has failed me in several jobs with clients, terrible for photography and on his face he sees very white spots, horrible
Ben from Gurnee, IL
After about 2 hours or so, this looked EXTREMELY patchy and horrible on my skin. Never again will I use this product, and the amount you get for the price is AWFUL.
Not flash approved powder
Essence from New York
A lot of flash back!!!!As a young lady of darker skin it is hard to find a setting powder for me but this setting powders job was completely bad!
DONT BUY FOR PICTURES
Emma from South Carolina
This product worked great with my skin and didn't make me look dry, or the look of dry skin. It held up really good with my oily skin.... until I had to take pictures and my face was white. It was awful. The powder also had a very chemically smell and was very strong.

Love it!!! Great product.

I really thought this setting powder was the bomb! Until I went to take a selfie later tonight... ha, boy was I wrong. Terrible TERRIBLE flashback 😭
Make up bag must have
Anita from Los Angeles, CA
Gave up my MAC studio fix powder for this. My skin tends to get oily, I like a very matte full coverage finish. Been using this for over 3 years to set my foundation. Works great, no complaints. Everyone I've recommended this to has loved it as well. Good price, no flashback, ever. Blends nicely into skin, especially when I set with NYX matte setting spray. Can't see myself using any other face/setting powder.

I got very bad flashback with this powder...I tried using less of it and not bake but nope I still got it.
Did it's job but not a good texture
Andrea from Simsbury
It did it's job as setting powder and I didn't notice any major problems but the texture feels almost grainy
em_ from USA
Tried to use it five different times with different foundations concealers and nothing worked, the flashback was still always there and left dry patches everywhere. Looked horrible!!
I would NOT buy this product again
Anna from Iowa
I did not like the feeling of this product, it goes on like a different kind of material. I know it is a mineral powder but I have used other mineral powders but this was not the same. It did not attach to my brush well, and it made a huge mess. I did not like the color, the color of the powder looks way different when you open it then when you looked at the container. It was extremely too light for the light/medium. It dried out my face and made me look pale because it was so light.
Devyn from TX
This is NOT a setting powder, despite the name. It will dull shine, but even then in a very average way. I do not produce a lot of oil, so I can imagine how useless this would be for someone who does have oily skin. If you use it as a setting powder, it will crease and gather product by mid-day. My skin is in fantastic shape with hardly any fine lines, yet this powder still found ways to gunk up on my face. I've tried it with different primers, concealers and foundations and I'm not pleased with this powder. I can only image this would work for a very low-maintenance, two-minute makeup routine, and even then I would still suggest using BareMinerals or L'Oreal.
Ashley from Los Angeles
This product works great but the flashback is SERIOUS! Definitely won't be wearing anytime pics are being taken and won't purchase again.
Doll2020 from Rancho Cucamonga
Sets face beautifully, BUT leaves a white cast with flash photography or even when light just hits it where you use it on your face :( I have dry skin and it works so good but the white cast kills it
Love this line. Usually I buy various types of make-up.
twiggy98 from CA - California
Don't leave the house without my make-up. A lot of lines do not carry this type of powder. More pressed powder. This is a big need.
Love, love, love, this setting powder!
Olivia from Douglasville
This setting powder really makes your makeup silky smooth. It feels like one of the big brands setting powders without the big brand price. Really great for oily skin.
KD from Florida
I have combination skin so I love the matte look but can't use matte foundation. This gives me that look without drying me out and helps my makeup stay on all day.
Shorty B from Queens, NY
Absolutely do not recommend... this gives the worst flashback ever!! Use can't stop won't stop instead
Love, Love, Love!
Knoelle from Seattle
I'll be stocking up on this powder. It's so smooth on my skin and meshes beautifully with my foundation. NYX has made an amazing powder that keeps me shine free and smooth!
Just try it
Amy from New Mexico
Absolutely LOVE this powder! It last all day and does as it say. I only wear powder no foundation and the the rest of what make up I'm feeling that day and this powder works soooo great. Will definitely be buying more although not so sure from Ultra since I had several problems with other items in my order.
Settled into the creases under my eyes. Made me look older!
Silk from Long Beach Ca
Would never use again
Great setting powder
Erin from Florida
Can't beat the price and this powder works great on my dry skin. It doesn't break up over foundation and last a long time. I haven't found anything else comparable within the price range. Other powder separate on my skin.
Cannot do without
Dee from Los Angeles, CA
I use to swear by the MAC studio fix powder for a matte look up until I found this! I cannot do without this powder, I have oily skin and this keeps my oily skin at bay, it also locks in my foundation in place without looking super cakey. Have bought over & over again for years. Everyone I've recommended this to has nothing but positive things to say about it.
Great product light on the skin 👌👍
Ali from Gastonia NC
It's a very light feeling finishing powder and lasts all day 😍
Not for dry skin
Val from NM
It's super mattifying, it's good if you have super oily skin but not if you have dry skin, it made my face look and feel all crusty and disgusting
