Most Helpful Positive Review Just tried this today
I got a nice sized sample of this in a GWP and have only used it to set my under eye corrector and concealer, but I have to say I really like it. I have oily skin yet some fine lines under my eyes and this didn't settle into them. It even helped blur and brighten the area a little. I'll keep using it to see if I continue to like it.
Most Helpful Critical Review I thought I would love this product
I have to do the majority of my Ulta shopping online because there are no stores close to me. Because of that, I have become a pro at searching reviews and trying to find the best products. I was not pleased with this one. It did not set my foundation very well, and it moved my liquid foundation around my face. I use patting motions to set my foundation to keep away from smears, but it did not work with this setting powder. It also oxidizes, and gets darker the longer you wear it. Unlike the picture, the product is packaged similarly to Bare Minerals products. This one has a tab over it that has to be twisted in order for the product to come out. Overall, I was not pleased with this product. I would not recommend it if you are looking for a good setting powder.
Reviewed by 351 customers I will not purchase this product again
JED from Wisconsin
I have used this product for years, but I noticed on the most recent container that the ingredients have changed. The first ingredient is now talc. The reason I prefer mineral-wear make up is to avoid talc. I won't buy this again.
Worked well for a little bit
Becca from Washington
Worked really well on my foundation for a little while, but now every time I use it, it just ruins the foundation and looks really bad. I do not recommend this.
Doesn't come out
Danielle from Silverdale
Yes I took the tape off, even put the lid on and banged it over and over again against the counter upside down. Hit it on its side like other loose powders, all the tricks and only a tinny tinny amount comes out. It's a waste of time and money.
Light weight and good coverage!

I would buy this again

Gives my skin all the coverage it needs with this setting powder. Looks flawless
Beautiful setting powder
Melissa from Wilmington, NC
I've tried seemingly every setting powder there is, and they all made me cakey feeling. Not sure why I kept trying to find an alternative to this, other than thinking because it was store brand, it couldn't be as good as high end powders. I've finally accepted it's just that good. Out of my entire makeup stash, this is the one item I keep back ups on and have repurchased consistently over the past two years. Love picking it up when Ulta runs a B2G2 sale! This is my holy grail setting powder!
Appears a little ghostly on the face

Not as expected or described.
Best setting powder ever!

Put on after primer or foundation. Keeps oily skin matte
Sage from Wisconsin
Using it to bake I felt it dried a little weird after left on for a while...like it took a little more than normal effort to brush off excess with a powder brush. Using it to set and highlight certain parts of my face it worked very nice, leaving a natural finish and no film. I used a dry Beauty blender to apply over medium coverage foundation/concealer and I usually apply a couple times throughout makeup routine depending what I'm using it for.

This setting powder is awesome for the prize. I used to use Kat von D's setting powder and with this you're not only saving money but you're looking sharp while doing it.
Cara from Bay area
I use with a brush over my foundation, and it lasts all day !! I used to use Neutrogena translucent powder and this works way better! Happy to find this one. Not cakey, nice even light powder.
Best. Powder. Ever.
Blonde Bob from Galveston, TX
I use the translucent powder to set my foundation. I have oily skin and a talc sensitivity, so it's hard to find a good powder that ticks all the boxes. This one does! It stays on all day, keeps my foundation from sliding off my face, doesn't look greasy or cakey, and doesn't make my face break out. And it's much cheaper than the prestige brands I was buying before! I stock up on these when Ulta has the buy two, get two free deals and save even more! If you have a talc sensitivity be sure the check the label on this powder as Ulta has started putting talc in some versions of this powder. I hope they keep the original formula though!
Jamie from Midlothian, VA
This powder was awful. It sets into every line I had. I tried to use it to set my concealer under my eyes, and it made under eyes dark again. I had to use concealer again. The only thing I liked was that it's able to be closed, so the packaging is nice.
This MELTS into the foundation
x.no3ll3.x from Spokane WA
I use the Dermablend foundation mixed with UD Naked (the newest one) mixed and this just MELTED into the product making for such a smooth finish! Not a lot of product so it's probably not as much of a value you'd have to buy 3 to get the amount of Laura Mercier or Too Face BTW, so
I probably won't buy again just cause it's not a savings but for those who need to save a few bucks in a pinch this reminds me of the BareMinerals setting powders.
Best for Undereye
Loops from Fresno, CA
I received this as a mini and randomly decided to use it as my undereye setting powder. It works great!! This is my HG undereye powder. It leaves my undereye looking poreless. My undereyes are dry and this keeps it looking soft matte after putting on a glowy concealer.
I do buy this again and again.

Last step knoll makeup.
The best highlighting powder! Enough said ..
Cherish from Tampa, Fl
This powder leaves a beautiful glow. Best highlighter I've ever used and affordable
JC from Fresno, CA
This is my all time favorite setting powder! 100% recommend to anyone.
Not messy and makes foundation stay
Emily from Salt Lake City, UT
I've used a few different face powders over the years and this one is by far my favorite. It doesn't make a mess, it goes on well, it doesn't have a weird smell, and it helps my foundation stay in place.
Gabby from Carthage MS
I love this setting powder. My face usually gets really oily after about 3 hours after I put my makeup on but with this, I was shine free all day today. I have acne scars and this made my skin look very smooth. The only thing I don't like is that it has talc in it and the packaging was confusing. I didn't know you had to twist it to get the powder out.
My holy grail
Norma from Visalia Ca
I love This!!! I have Oily skin so by mid day all my make up is melted lol ever since i bought this My skin has been incredible it does not leave my skin dry leaves it good my make up last throughout the day this is the perfect setting powder
Doesn't blend well
Missy from Ashland, Oh
Not sure if this is a loose version of pressed powder, but that's what I was told. Middle lid didn't want to come off the shaker part and I bent my tweezers trying to pry it out. Directions would've been nice.
Keira from NJ
This powder definitely helps with oil control and helps with a very soft skin and matte look. The jar itself is pretty terrible. It's very hard to get the powder out and if you do manage to get some out, a huge amount comes out and makes a huge mess.
