Most Helpful Positive Review my favorite setting powder at the moment!
I purchased this setting powder because of MannyMUA and Laura Lee. At first, I HATED this powder! It just did not mix well with my foundation, concealer, and powder. But once I figured out how to properly use it (a slightly damp sponge or a fluffy brush), then the powder blended seamlessly into my skin. It was a little light, but nothing a little MAC Mineralize SkinFinish powder can't fix if I don't want a super highlighted under eye. Another bad thing about this product, if you cry or your eyes water a lot from allergies, it will crease and come off. Easy to fix, but annoying if you're short on time. Overall, a great powder and I like the way it looks with my makeup, but it took a while to figure out how to use it properly. And it can be messy; would prefer the way Bareminerals stores their powder in the jar.
Most Helpful Critical Review Went bad or I got a bad batch
I purchased this through another major cosmetic supplier. I was looking for the LM Translucent setting powder and they insisted this would work better. No, it does not. It leaves an odd colored cast - sort of orange, like I used the wrong bronzer. It tends to look heavy and cakey, and definitely settles into fine lines. A few months after opening it I noticed that it had a bad smell. Ever take fish oil? That's what it reminds me of. The two good things I can say is that the packaging is better than most loose powders because the sifter has a turning top that allows you to close it so extra powder doesn't tap out if you travel with it, and it's a pretty large container with a generous amount of product. When I tap the powder into the lid, there is plenty of room to swirl my brush without crushing it into the sides (which I hate doing since I love my brushes and want them to last).

This products needs more hype. I've used Laura mercier translucent powder and I ran out so I decided to give this a try. THIS LOOKS BEAUTIFUL on my skin all day. I have oily skin and this powder makes my foundation look blurred and airbrushed. I will never go back!!

Love this powder! It allows my makeup to look smooth and helps keep it in place especially when wearing a mask! When I take off my mask my whole face is still on my face! Great product!

10 years and counting. I get about 3 months out of every setting powder. Feels great and lightweight while effectively locking in my foundation.
Talc free - amazing!
Becca from Duluth, MN
Wonderful powder, never looks cakey, gives you smooth airbrush finish. For my worst areas where I have a lot of pores I use my finger to press it in, works great! Repurchased many-many times and highly recommend 👍🏻.

Magatron128 from Chicago, IL
This is the setting powder I compare all others to. It's silky, finely milled, no flashback and a skin-like finish. Plays nicely with other finishing/baking powders. Works really well with setting spray to look like your natural skin. The packaging is nice and it's unscented which is ideal in my opinion. It's just good. My only gripe is the amount you get for the price. One of these bad boys only lasts me about 8 weeks and I only put makeup on 4 days a week.

Love this setting powder. One of my favorites! It sets my makeup so well & leaves smooth finish. No caking or dry patches on my skin. I have dry skin, but this does not dry my face more. Love it!

Perfect size for travel, my favored setting powder to use over the Natural Finish Foundation. Feels great on the face, set's your makeup for the day and silky smooth application!

Perfect setting powder! Doesn't lay in the lines on my face. Keeps my make up in place all day. Great for older skin especially.
Sabrina from Quebec, Canada
I recently started using the setting powder to prevent creasing under my eyes. It's my biggest trouble spot and the setting powder has tackled the problem with such ease. The powder doesn't make my under eyes look cakey and lasts all day.
Anita N. from GA
I LOVE this powder. I use it to bake under my eyes and set my makeup overall. It never looks dry or emphasizes the lines under my eyes. It's pricey and I go through it quickly, so I try to catch it on sale. But regardless I love it and will continue to purchase.
Absolutely love this setting powder!

Absolutely love this setting powder! Love the ingredients & how it improves the wear of my makeup.
Ari from Arizona
This is the best setting powder I've ever used. I bought this because it is talc- free. I'm moving away from products with known carcinogens. The finish is gorgeous as it is smooth, blurring, not cakey and not too matte. I like that it doesn't sit on top of my skin. It blends beautifully. I have not seen these results with other big hitter brands. I had to give only 4 stars because although the product performs very well there is no shade range. Cover FX needs to include a medium- deep so it doesn't completely alter our foundation color. I apply 2 light layers with Morphe M501 brush. If you apply to much you'll come out looking sunburned. Cover Fx please create a medium- deep.

Ive used a lot of different powders, but this is one of the few that don't cause me to breakout. I have sensitive skin, so sometimes it's hard finding products that don't make me breakout, but I've been using this powder for a long time and I've had no issues! It looks beautiful and lasts well. I will definitely continue to purchase this powder.

So far loving it
Sarah H. from Chicago
I've used this on bare skin and over a concealer/ foundation. First off, this is a setting powder to keep makeup in place and not a concealer or foundation, so don't expect it to work like a powder to hide/ blend away imperfections. Also, if you have wrinkles or dry skin this product isn't for you because YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSE TO USE powder products on those skin types! All is going to do is make them stand out more. So don't hate on this product for those reasons because any powder will do that. Second, as far as bare skin goes, on combination skin it added nothing. I don't have really oily skin so I can't review how it works on oily bare skin as far as absorbtion or mattified look. As far as a setting powder goes it works great! It definitely mattes the shine from make up. That being said you may run into issues as far as dry patches. If you have dry patches you need to take care of that first before applying the setting powder. I didn't notice my dry patches with my concealer on but after applying the setting powder it was more noticeable. But all that meant was I needed to take care of those flakes before applying makeup. Once I took care of my skin my makeup looked great! (And again if your skin is dry to begin with this isn't the product for you but, if it's just some flakes or dry skin that is irregular you can make this product work for you.)

Doesn't look dry on the skin, and doesn't change color once applied over foundation. Can even be used on very light skin tones. It's a staple in my bridal kit!
Super fine and seamless!
Sofia E. from Miami, FL
This powder is almost unnoticeable when you put it over makeup. It blends seamlessly and has no white cast. It covers up the area under the eyes nicely and without creasing. The selection of colors is ok, but I thing the range could be expanded in the Deep department!
Lisa K. from Maryland
This setting powder is so, so good. Helps your makeup look flawless and stay put and doesn't mess with the color of any other product.
