Most Helpful Positive Review It WORKS
I wore this to my dad's retirement ceremony (35 years of police work) I knew I would cry, so I used all nighter concealer, the new waterproof perversion mascara, this setting powder and of course all nighter setting spray. I CRIED. A LOT. From about 10-11:30 am that day. I could not believe how I looked afterwards at lunch, my makeup looked as if I had just applied it. And this product did what it said it would. First of all, i love the packaging. The powder itself does take a few dips into the pan to get your brush coated. But it applies beautifully, sets your foundation to a gorgeous finish. And best of all, literally SEALS your makeup on, not even ugly crying could have an effect. Please, do yourself a favor and try this. And have a good cry, it's healthy
Most Helpful Critical Review Missing Something
I purchased this item and thought "How Great! I can have this on while I'm in the HOT Sun!" Nope. . . One of two things . . .Either I applied this completely wrong. Or It's not strong enough for me.
I put on my makeup like everyone else; clean face, prep, then step by step with eyes and face, last I will use the "All Nighter Spray" (which is AMAZING!) and then I tried this powder. . .Later on. . while we were out. . .I noticed that every time I had to pat my face dry because I was sweating. . .my makeup was coming off. Something didn't go right. How is this to be fixed? I paid a good deal for something that should last no matter what!?!

Toni from Ulta San Antonio
I was looking for a new setting powder to hold my makeup since I sweat easily and this one takes the cake. I just started my new job and I'm outside sometimes and my make up looks soooo good. And the best part other that my smooth looking skin is that I don't break out from it!! Or get irritated skin. Definitely will be purchasing again
Love that it's waterproof!
AR from AL
This powder darkened my foundation by a shade, but it doesn't look bad. I especially like to apply it on rainy days! I found myself starting to use it as a regular setting powder.
Pale and it works
Alex312 from Chicago, IL
I'm super pale, the first shade in everything and I didn't have a problem with this powder. As long as you don't cake it on, it's nearly translucent.
TeresaB from Charleston, SC
I love this powder. It has done wonders in helping my makeup stay. I live in SC, so it has held up in over 100 degree weather with some crazy humidity. I use the pixi glow mist with it and my face looks so natural! It definitely will darken your makeup, since it works so well for me I've bought my foundation in a shade lighter than normal which fixed it. I have tried so many setting powders that when I found one that worked so well for me, it was worth it to get a shade lighter in my foundation. Just something to keep in mind.
keeks from indiana
so it does darken your complexion by a shade so i use this with my foundations that are too light for me . this definitely waterproof and saves my under eyes when my allergies are going nuts and my eyes are watery.
Not for fine lines
Lo_ren23 from Minnesota
I initially liked this product because the shade worked well with my skin tone and it does set makeup, however, after using for a while I've noticed how much this powder actually ages me. It is quite cakey and ends up looking patchy unless you barely put any on which kind of defeats the purpose of a setting powder. It settles into fine lines really badly when I literally only do a couple of swirls with a powder brush so unless you have literally no fine lines, I don't recommend.
Dark like bronzer
Kiwi from San Diego, CA
Works on a variety of skin tones as long as you're not fair I guess. Way too dark for me, ended up looking like splotchy bronzer.
On the fence
Francis from Pittsburgh, pa
I have done the whole recommended routine twice now in 2 different environments (all nighter primer, this finishing powder, & setting mist).
It definitely works well and keeps makeup in place for a typical day (in/out of buildings & cars).
However, I purchased it in hopes of keeping my makeup on for an outdoor birthday party, and it did not hold up to the humidity at all.
So it works for a typical day, but then so do other finishing powders that are half the price. Don't let the "waterproof" fool you…if you're using a primer & finishing spray anyway, the cost of this product isn't worth it.
Boo from Ulta
Really wanted this to work out, they told me it only comes in one color when I saw it on the shelf because I already saw it was pretty dark for being a setting powder. And yep I was right, it's so dark, would work if I had a tan but I don't. As for oil control eh could be better. Don't recommend it.
Kari from Clearwater
As far as staying power goes, the product works. Unfortunately, it is not truly translucent. I'm fair/light in all foundations and this setting powder looks like I'm using bronzer over my whole face. If they were to make an actual translucent version, I'd love it.
brit from Rhode Island
Makes your makeup bullet proof. Great for oily skin and I feel more confident when I use it because I know my makeup will last
THIS STUFF IS AMAZINGGGGG
brookdabombb from tulsa
Omg I cant explain it but this stuff makes your makeup look AMAZING. I put this on over my estee lauder doublewear foundation & went to the lake all day and my makeup stayed on all day. Crazy. I love this stuff
beware of orange face
Beachmom19 from dmv
This is definitely not translucent - it must oxidize after applying. No thanks ooompa loompa face. I wish the color worked because it mattified me after my prep routine, but then I looked in the mirror a few minutes later and oops - ORANGE!!!
Nananeenie from Webster NY
Love this product. Blends perfectly with my colored makeup.
Great setting powder
Aysh from New Jersey
nice and light ..easy to apply.. doesn't look powdery
I would buy again
MUA from Georgia
I really like this setting powder and it does stay on for a few hours. I have super oily skin and I usually retouch my makeup within 4-5 hours, otherwise I end up looking cakey and shiny. It's not waterproof but it does a good job at keeping your makeup up for a long time. If you don't have oily skin I can see this product being your holy grail.
Not 100% non transferable
Makeup newb from SC
Used for setting makeup...it set but transfer was still seen on my mask...I even used urban decay setting spray. The cost of this IS NOT worth it. Same results when using my regular routine. Too lazy to take it back so it's a loss.
I would buy this product again and again
Mer from Plattsburgh, NY
This powder is lightweight. It provides awesome coverage and you don't need a lot to get this effect. The powder does not enhance lines or wrinkles, rather it helps to disguise them. I love it!
Cakey and heavy
cake face from san jose, CA
I used this under my eyes and it accentuated fine lines. When applied to the t zone it just looks heavy and cakey no matter how i applied it. It works in the sense its a powder but for the price you're much better off purchasing a different one
Michi1108 from Orlando, FL
Brush over my entire face after I apply my make up
Amelia from Oceanside, CA
I won't be buying this powder again. It's not translucent, like it claims to be. It has an orangey tint to it and completely changes the color of my face. It also doesn't keep me looking set all day. I usually have to reapply to cover up the shine, but then I'm even more orangey.
Oily Skin Savior!!!
Andie from California
The packaging and compact is so cheapy. It's not as nice and I was hoping, it's plastic but I've had other plastic compacts that didn't feel this cheap.
Aside from that, the powder is PHENOMENAL!! The best if you have oily skin.
SueW from Cheektowaga, New York
I normally use the Urban Decay loose powder in translucent. Since it was not available, I decided to try this powder. I was very disappointed. It changed the color of my foundation. It did not go on smoothly. I looked like a clown.
Bribo90 from Ohio
I'm convinced the other reviewers are too heavy handed. I'm pale. I'm the friend who slathers herself in spf before even thinking of going outside. I have not experienced darkening of my foundation in the slightest. I think it makes my makeup look great and last longer.
BJ from Fort Worth, TX
Long lasting setting powder, but definitely NOT translucent!! Has an orangey tint to it that doesn't work for a minimalist like me who doesn't use foundations or tinted moisturizers. Very Disappointed!
Used to LOVE this brand but the last few products I've purchased have not been what they claim & the quality is not what it once was.
