Most Helpful Positive Review Great and affordable
I bought this product because I wanted a finishing powder that was tinted as opposed to white/translucent, because I feel like they make me look washed out, especially now since it is Winter and I'm not quite as tan (I am medium/olive skin tone). This product is definitely yellow- you cannot use too much, or you might look a bit odd. However, once I figured out how much was right for me, it looked great and my skin looked warmed up. If you have fair skin, you might not want to get the yellow color. I also have to say that I have very sensitive skin, but once I switched to this producted, I've had significantly less breakouts and my skin has been very smooth lately. This is a really great product, although it is a little messy. Definitely worth it though.
Most Helpful Critical Review It just didn't work for my Fair skin
I used this product to try & brighten up my under eye area as seen by many of my YouTube influencers. The powder felt great it was silky to touch & didn't cake up; it just did not work whatsoever with my Fair skin. It turned it dark mustard yellowish in color.

I've used this powder by its self a few times when I was in a hurry. It felt light and blended well with my skin tone.
Shine bright like a diamond

I've been using this luminizer for years. I found it at a beauty store not at Ulta. I had no clue Ulta sold Jcat til now. Just like every other review has has stated a lil goes a long way. It's so fine that ur brush will pick up a lot of product. I use it as a highlighter because it's so shiny & wasn't sure how to use as a setting powder. I didn't want to look like a disco ball but I see some woman actually use it under there eyes so I will need to try that. If you wanna see how I use this product look up my YouTube channel AliCorn. 😉

My new favorite!!! It completely sets my makeup in while making my face sparkle! It's so much product & feels super light. I ordered the shade Transparent since I'm extremely pale, it works perfect for me.
Will order more once I run out! 🖤🖤🖤
Shannon from Pennsylvania
Looks very natural. A little goes a long way!
Shine bright like a diamond
Shelbo from WA
I got the Pearl shade, and while I don't use it to set my makeup, I apply a bit all over my face because I'm extra and love to sparkle. A little goes a long way, for real! Use way less than you think you'll need and bam! You sparkling

Not much covering and a bit lighter for my light medium skin tone.
Only use for a highlighter
Izzy from America
I got the peal one (I have light to medium skin tone) and it's a great color less light lighter. It's natural in indoor lighting but very glittery and stunning in sun light! It's great a little goes a long way. I never use it to set my make up because it's too shiny in some lighting. And sadly I don't think it would be good for dark or deep dark skin tones because it has more of a pearly under tone which might go gray. Definitely think they should expand the shade range.
beautiful natural highlight
Lola from SATX
This product gives me a beautiful natural highlighted look. Really good for the price.
I think i'll pass
Lex from NA
I love J. Cat they have some amazing products but this isn't one of them. I used this to bake & set my face... but all it did was roll my makeup off my face & leave behind a white cast. I have used better setting powders than this.
Skin: oily t-zone & normal on the rest of my face
Lasting and Light wear
KittyGalore from Texas
love Love LOVE this powder! Sets my makeup and gives me a warm finish. It's light weight so no chalkiness and it's soft to the touch. Will purchase again and again, especially for that price!
Great product, don't let "Can cause...." sway you.
Sunshiney_Daze from Lehi, UT
There was a comment about "could cause cancer, etc" and I just want to point out that due to Proposition 65 in California they are legally required to put this on anything that may come into the state. This product is a great product, a little goes a long way and it is very easy to use.
Don't let the Prop 65 sway you, this is something that is put on everything for California. It's standard.
Gorgeous subtle highlight
Mary from York, PA
I purchased the pearl luminizer shade. It is a gorgeous subtle highlight. It will last forever! Gives the face such luminosity. Or you can build up on the cheek bones for a brighter highlight. Such a great value. This looks like an Hourglass product. One of the most exciting finds ever!
Does not crease
Karen from Alabama
I use this under my eyes to brighten.. it does not crease.. I like it for that reason.. not to mention the price is about a fourth of other setting powders.. and they seem to crease.. I have enjoyed this powder so far.
Not worth the cost
Jay from Denver
I tried using it and it was extremely hard to work with. And it was just way too shined and made me look oily. And extremely cakey
Wow a little goes a LONG way
Em from Atlanta, GA
It's super pretty and shimmery, but A LOT goes a long way. I bought one jar of this back in August, it's now March and I'm not even close to being halfway done with it. I use it as a highlighter, it can be built up to blinding super easily. It's become a holy grail product for me.

Right under the ingredients there is a lovely "WARNING: Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm"
Choose another product!
Cassie from Noblesville, IN
Choose another product, don't waste your time with this one. It is awful! I had tried to use this instead of my more expensive ones and I wish I wouldn't have. It's more like a highlighter and it's shimmery. It's cakey, hard to get off, and just clogged my pores. It made my face so oily. It was awful!
KNJumper from Aurora IL
I use the pearl one all over as a setting powder but mainly to give me a subtle glow. If you go too heavy with this product, it will give you a highlighter effect. I add more product where I would normally highlight and then use whatever is left on the brush on the rest of my face. A little goes a long way too
Porcelain pro powder
Marcie_Lovess from Ohio
I bought this on sale. Great for under the eyes. Brightening without sparkle. Great product at a great price.
I would buy this product again and again
Linds from Okemos mi
I use the pearl luminizer all over as a finishing powder and absolutely love it!! This is amazing!!!
Definitely buying again
mommaBx6 from Dallas, Tx
I purchased the Porcelain and I love the coverage. It has a tiny bit of shimmer but not a whole lot. It covers my face just as well as the name brand products I was using and doesn't set in my wrinkles or define my pores.
Jay from Riverside, CA
I had heard good reviews on this product hence why I bought it but when I actually tried it, I hated it. I tried setting my my under eyes with it and it looked patchy right away. It looked horrible.
I couldn't believe it!
Cloud from Texas
I have bought and tried from all the name brands to all price to range. For the past 2 months I have felt my foundation melting like a candle or just runs off after a couple of hours. So I thought one more powder to my collection. Finally I have found a powder that sets my foundation in place and it looks amazing. Not to mention our weather is from 95-102 degrees in recent days, and I run around all day from 7am to after 5pm. This is a must powder to have, works beautiful with all of my foundations.
Never buying Laura Mercier again!!!
Lex J from Los angeles
This powder worked just as well as my luxury, high end setting powder. I'm IMPRESSED!
