Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

I really like this! so the girl that recommend this was at the counter when I was returning another powder that dried out my skin. She knew exactly what I was describing and recommended I try this one. the only "issue" I find and this goes for any loose powder is how messy it can be. There is another lid aside from the main lid that covers the holes that the powder comes out from and you have to pour it onto something to dip your brush in. its just messy. and I know that's a general issue, but I wish there was a better way because I feel it can waste product

    Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

    I decided to try this powder because I am currently converting to a completely vegan makeup collection. This is the BEST loose powder I have ever tried (DermaBlend, Maybelline, Japonesque, L.A. Girl, No. 7). I thought my skin looked airbrushed with the Too Faced Ethereal setting powder, but no, my skin looks EVEN MORE stunning, airbrushed & completely flawless. I use this powder to bake as well as set my entire face. It works well with every concealer I own (Catrice, Make Up Revolution, Shape Tape, L.A. girl). This powder does not alter the colour of my foundation or concealer! I have provided a photo as evidence of how "perfect" my makeup looks. There are NO filters used in this photo. Just pure sunlight. The concealer I'm wearing is the new Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer in "Swan". I'm so in love with this powder! Will be purchasing again as soon I run out.

    Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

    I didn't even know what setting powder was until this product was recommended to me in an Ulta Beauty store. After my first use, I was hooked! This covers the shine on any foundation and leaves an even, natural look to any face. I wouldn't say this product provides coverage per say, however it makes your face look and feel so much better! Even in humid weather, I don't get that shiny look to my face when using this product.

      Comments about COVER FX Perfect Setting Powder:

      I picked this up in a move of desperation because I was out of my Laura Mericer powder and wanted to give this a try. It's definitely a good powder and makes the skin look beautiful, but the value is just not there. The LM powder is 1oz of product for just a few more dollars so it lasts way longer. This lasted me about a month and a half and I only used it to set my under eye and used Rimmel powder to set the rest of my face so I definitely will not be repurchasing just because of the amount of product you get.

        I use this to set my under eyes and it is so beautiful. My under eyes are typically really dry so I have always been really light with my powder usage but this powder doesn't emphasize my dry under eyes and sets my makeup perfectly. My new favorite powder hands down.

          This product was recommended to me by a makeup artist to control t-zone shine. I've been applying this in addition to benefit porefection primer and tarte Amazonian clay foundation. It smooths out and sets my makeup for the day. I really like it in the few days I've used so far!

              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.

                  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!

                  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!
