    No sparkle. Matte. great for setting a natural look. Would not use this product to bake, but I wouldn't recommend baking for anything other than film.

      Comments about ULTA Mineral Setting Powder:

      There are 5 tiny holes for the powder to get through. I shook, dropped, pounded, even thought about breaking the container to get the power out. After all of that, I got out enough to set one eyelid... so basically nothing. ...and yes, I removed the plastic film covering the holes. Went back to using my E.L.F setting powder until I think of a work-around.

        Comments about ULTA Mineral Setting Powder:

        So tough to find silicone free anything. This does not dry out face as much as some other powders (as long as you're well moisturized). I have to wear toms of zinc oxide sunscreen every day and I look oily so using a good amount of powder is a must and thisnstuff works well and not bad for skin like other products.

                from Viera

                Comments about ULTA Mineral Setting Powder:

                This is great to set your foundation and concealer. I have medium warm skin tone and it works well. A little product goes a long way.
                I use a brush or damp beauty blender to set it. Both work well. Definitely helps to prevent under eye creasing when I use this to set my concealer.
                Price is great too!

                  Comments about ULTA Mineral Setting Powder:

                  I really love this powder. It's the closest thing I've found to the Laura mercier powder that affordable. I just wish they had a light and dark version because this is great for most skin tones, but slightly too dark for the under eye area if you're very fair.

                  Comments about ULTA Mineral Setting Powder:

                  Pretty standard loose setting powder. Convenient twist and lock container for when you throw it in your bag, it's not going to dump out all over the inside of the lid (as long as you remember to close it of course). This powder is fine and translucent, so it is great for setting concealer or foundation. It does settle in fine lines, a little, but all powders do. I would not recommend using on its own as it will not provide much coverage by itself.

                      Mineral Setting Powder is very sheer/translucent and is designed to set your foundation for lasting wear. Mineral Powder Foundation has more coverage and is designed to be used as a foundation.

                      Mineral Setting Powder is a translucent finishing powder that applies invisibly, so it is suitable for all skin tones and performs beautifully for flash photography. For best results, tap away excess powder from your brush or applicator and blend well onto skin.
