Great production for setting my foundation, makes my face look and feel very smooth
I have never written a review before but felt absolutely obligated to after seeing a picture of myself in this for the first time. The flashback is AWFUL. I'm so dissapointed because I was loving this stuff. It goes on so silky smooth and gave me a flawless finish but taking pictures is so horrendous that it makes the product not worth it. I am going to finish this jar out only using it on days where I know I won't be in pictures and then I will not be buying it again.

I cannot believe how truly awful this powder is. Not only is it messy and smells horrible but it doesn't blend out and leaves my foundation looking patchy. My fiancé asked me if I had poison ivy on my face when my skin is blemish free. After that I threw it in the trash and immediately knew I had to go back to my usual powder.

Sets my skin flawlessly for the entire day. I never need to reapply powder and after setting my face, I'm shine free. Definitely my favorite powder, just need to be a little light handed as it does leave a white cast if you put too much.
Sam from Long Beach
No matter how much I try to blend this in, in some lighting you can still see white patches. If it looks ok in the bathroom, it won't look ok in the bedroom, etc. I cannot go out comfortably with this on knowing in some lighting the patches will show up.

1) doesn't work well as a "finishing powder"
2) smells like chlorine
Try something else!

This is a great price and does apply nicely. However, right now, my life is one huge STRESS ball. So, tears flow often. My face, after a cry, looks like a sandy desert after a rain storm. You can see every path the tears traveled. NOT a good look. To be fair, most people will not be crying like me. However, I don't like the way it makes under my eyes look in general. I feel my other powder covers better and will be going back to that one ( honest beauty blurring powder)

First off I know some of the complaints are about the white cast this gives it's not 100% translucent.. but it works for me. I am super pale and usually the lights color of foundation so this works perfect for me. I love using this to set concealer under my eyes and lasts long even on a hot day while wearing a face mask! I do dislike the packaging I find it's hard to use a little at a time and when it closes there is a poof of dust in the air. Best to empty it in another container for use. Other than that I prefer this over coty airspun and some other popular face powders.

Smells gross and makes you sneeze like crazy
Elsa from Portland
Makes my skin look smooth and pore-less ( my pores are not small). Wears well through out the day, with no oil breakthrough. Nor does it dry out my skin. No issues with flashback.

I've been an MUA since 2013. This is a dupe for the MUFE one, if you were trained in this you'd learn that this isn't really a setting powder. It's a FINISHING powder meant to go on top of a face that's already set you only need a TINY, TINY amount and you should apply it with a black tipped kabuki brush like the MUFE or ELF one because MUFE made it black for a reason, you shouldn't see the powder on the brush or smell the silica. From there you just press it on in areas with texture and it will give that diffusing effect.
This wasn't intended for baking. If you use too much or use it like a setting powder you'll look ghostly or get that patchy powder glow in pics. If you do put too much, try applying something like fix+ because the "wetness" can tone down some of that flashback

I love to use this to set my undereye that has VERY fine lines where concealer settles, and I rarely have issues with it selling. It is very fine, so be careful when opening! Also great for all over the face. Worth a try for the price!
Stucknabook from Indiana
No matter how lightly I dust this over my face, I get awful flashback. If I walk into a room where a little light is shining on me, I look like a ghost. I'm already super pale, so this is pretty shocking, lol. This just isn't a good product and I recommend going with a different setting powder.
Danielle from NH
This powder is amazing! I have tried every powder from high end to low and nothing works as well as this! It is the only loose powder that stops my under eye from creasing. You have to use the right brush, and be very light handed with it. If used properly the results are flawless, long lasting, and truly amazing. I also love that it isn't full of fillers and other useless ingredients. It's simple and works! The only thing I would change would make the packaging a little better, so less comes out at a time. However if used the way it's supposed to be used it's holy grail status for me!

I'm excited to use this!
I was kinda banking on it coming with a little powder pad thingy though, because I don't have any brushes or anything yet :/ but I did find a way to try it out and I'm excited to get a decent applicator for it! it does the job.

I liked it very much but not sure how much I will use it-not every day
imagigi from dalton ga
I love this powder! My skin feels silky, my makeup stays on all day, and no flashback. I tend to agree with a few other users. Too many women dont really know how to apply their makeup. So then they give bad reviews.
I even work in a plant and sweat in the summer...and i still have makeup on at the end of the day. This is my absolute #1 go to!
Lex from North Las Vegas
The product is grainy to touch. Don't waste your money.
Hlolms from Atlanta
This is a great little product. I have extremely oily skin. If I apply makeup by 8am, by 10 it's an oily mess. With this powder, I did not need to reapply until about 2pm, and I had to use just a dab. It also doesn't make me look pale, which is a huge bonus for these kind of powders. I will continue to use this gem! I just wish it came in a bigger size....however a little seems to go a long way, so hopefully it's not a frequent purchase.
Kaylee from UT
I use both the translucent and the tinted one, I love them both. I have used them for about the last two years.

I just tried a test patch on my hand, this powder over NYX's SFX Creme Colour Face & Body Paint, & finally! This powder helped my face paint stay on! When I brushed off the powder, it didn't brush off my make-up. Make-up didn't move. I gave 4 stars to this product, because it is messy & dusty. A little goes a long way.
Christina from CA
This is an excellent inexpensive powder and so clean given that the only ingredient is Silica. I prefer the IT powder for when I might do pictures ect but this is excellent, clean and inexpensive final powder for everyday. The packaging could be vastly improved as it needs a shaker top to avoid a mess. Use a LIGHT touch with this powder and lines will smooth out. Practice makes perfect here. I choose to vote with my dollars and support clean products like this.
Hannah from Kansas City
Love this loose setting powder! Will definitely buy again.
Carly from Md
Maybe it's just me but this product makes me gag when I put it on because it is very very powdery. I hate the texture but it semi works.
SPGonzalez from Los Angeles, CA
If used for its purpose, which is as a finishing powder, this stuff is amazing. I use it as a last step before setting spray to blend out any harsh lines and under my eyes. This will make you look flawless. It is extremely fine milled, so a little goes a long way. I don't recomend using a fluffy large brush because it will pick up TON of product. Use a duo fiber brush for just the right amount and swril in the lid.
About the so called smell of chemicals; this is one of the cleanest finishing powders in the market. It's rated 1 in the EWG database and the only ingredient is silica, which is natural. Although I do not recomend it, you could eat this and you would be ok. In fact, the body needs silica to build joints, ligaments etc.
But I digress...
Overall, great product if used correctly.
ecflagcorp from Mississippi
Don't breathe while you are putting this on...you might even want plug your nose because this goes everywhere! I hate the way it feels, it almost feels like a silicone layer. It just doesn't feel natural. You better blend, baby, blend! A quick brush of this doesn't do, you'll come back to the mirror and see patches of white that didn't get blended in. AND, it's caused me to break out along my jaw line. :'( At least it was cheap, it got me out of a bind...
