very high quality powder

By Vicki

from San Antonio Texas

Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

My biggest concern when I was looking for a powder was flashback, and this powder had absolutely NO flashback whatsoever! It's very very matte, but doesn't look thick, or cakey on the skin, even when i apply it with a damp sponge. I don't do a heavy bake, because I have dry skin, and setting it lightly with a damp sponge is enough for me. I make sure to push all the powder into the skin, and the powder is very airy, and buttery feeling. It's like silky, soft with absolutely NO gritty feeling whatsoever. I'm sure it will last me long, because I only set my under eyes, and smile lines. If you have very dry skin like me, make sure you EXFOLIATE all the dead skin off, and moisturize with a good facial oil before applying matte makeup like this powder.

    Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

    Purchased this instead of IT cosmetics translucent loose powder (because they were out) and one of the girls suggested this powder as a good alternative. My skin is sensitive and breaks out easily so I'm cautious when I buy a different brand, but this one has worked great. I have been wearing it for a few days now and it is great at controlling the shine on my face, doesn't look caked on, and it's very lightweight.

        I'm hooked

        By JessJ

        from Jax Beach

        Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

        I have combo skin. This powder creates a perfect velvet finish and eliminates shine instantly. My forehead always seemed to catch the light before, but not with this powder. It is finely milled, feels light as air and lasts all day. It does not oxidize or turn orange either. I also LOVE the mess free packaging. It has an inner lid you can open or close to contain the powder.

            Hello Cindy,
            Great question. If your skin tone pulls a true deep undertone, we would advise you to try shade dark in our Perfect Setting Powder.

        • Q:

          What is the difference between this and the illuminating setting powder? Or is this replacing the illuminating setting powder? I notice Ulta doesn't seem to carry the illuminating anymore and neither does some other stores.

            Hi,

            Thanks for the question. Perfect Setting Powder is more for blurring, smoothing and setting foundation with a natural, translucent finish while Illuminating Setting Powder sets makeup with a soft and radiant glow. Sadly, we have discontinued Illuminating Setting Powder from our product line. Hope this helps!

            A:

            Hi,

            Thank you for your question. All full sized powders have a protective lid to keep product secure and reduce loss of product, so there should not be powder under the cap/on top of the protective lid. Also, each powder has 10g of product. If the powder looks tampered with, our best recommendation is to exchange the product at your nearest Ulta location. Hope this helps!
