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).

I can't stress enough how AMAZING this setting powder is. It is by far the best powder I have ever used. It is lightweight, long lasting, and even gives you that pore-less filter look in real life. I have used a lot of the hyped up powders but this by far is my favorite. I even have back ups in case that I run out. I have fair sensitive skin that is red with pores, but this powder does wonders for me and I always get compliments every-time I have it on.
The absolute worst
Incitatus from Ohio
This makes my foundation break up within an hour, and grease just pools. I don't exactly have dry skin, but dang, this powder makes me look so much worse than any other makeup I've ever used, and I've been around for a while.
I never have any problem with the Setting Powder.

I buff this product before & after, this is not really my concern, all I can say, it always do the job.
Alicia from Modesto ca
I use this product for baking, I was worried that I would have white areas on my face after blending (I had this experience with bare minerals setting powder) but it applied smoothly and matched my foundation perfectly (I have medium skin tone) it did not crease under my eyes or look cakey. Will definitely recommend to others!
Perfect Setting Powder
Zaxmomd from FL
This powder is great for sensitive skin. I love it to set my under eye concealer without any caking. Great for the t-zone as well. Great formula and easy to apply.
Chels from Salem, OR
Just got this product, and am already in love. The way that it sets my foundation in place is awesome. It is also great to just give a matte look on a no foundation day. Will definitely buy again.
Clean product and Better!
Jenny from Chicago
I was looking for a clean setting powder without talc and bought this. It's amazing! I've tried so many and this one doesn't make your foundation look cakey and I wear med to full coverage foundation. So happy to have found this because I was looking for a talc free more natural powder and I didn't have to sacrifice on quality and in fact it's better! Cover Fx, you delivered!
Best setting powder
Dar from Michigan
I recommend this setting powder. I have tried numerous brands. It does not cake up on your skin. It leaves a smooth and polished finish. This is a must have for summer. Does not interfere with cosmetic color.
Better than Laura Mercier powder.
Sadie from Crossville,TN
I use to bake around my nose and smile lines or areas that tend to get oily. I have nothing negative to say about this powder.
allie from Alabama
not only is it drying, but is also makes me look ashy :( i really wanted to make this product work, but i just cant. if it's the only thing you have i supposed it's fine.
I would buy this again and again
JT from Fontana, CA
Great, flawless coverage
Katelyn from NY
I will definitely be purchasing again.
Will not be buying again
Desi from Denver, CO
I was using this powder in light with some high end foundations and regardless of which foundation I used this powder left a red undertone as well as setting in every fine line on my face. I didn't realize how bad it was until I switched to another brand and it was such a night and day difference! I do like the ingredients and the fact it is talc free.
Best loose powder I own!!
Lina from New York, NY
I have used sooo many loose powders and none will come close to this CoverFX one. I love it!! It leaves my face looking pore-less and perfect. I get so many compliments every time I use it. I'm already on my 5th purchase, I hope it never gets discontinued. Bonus it's great for my sensitive skin because all of its ingredients are clean.
The best setting powder I've ever used

This kept my face in place and hardly any transfer on my mask
Marie from Grapevine
This is my go to setting powder. Absolutely love it and it helps keep my makeup on and looking fresh all day
C from NO
I haven't used another setting powder since discovering this one. I have dry, sensitive skin, and sometimes get hormonal breakouts. I needed a powder that I could use all over my face and even under my eyes to set my concealer. This powder is EVERYTHING and sets my under eyes without any creasing. It leaves a smooth finish and doesn't aggravate my sensitive skin.
For baking only!
Elizabeth from GA
I will say when I first used this for my under eyes it looked so awful. It gave me a white cast but I was watching one of Jaclyn hills videos and she said she used it to back under her bronzer. So I tried that and let me say it works great for that area!! I've been using it ever since.
Tara from Minnesota
I'm glad I received a sample size and not splurging money on this. This Powder is the worst setting powder I have ever tried. It makes my foundation cakey and enlarges my pores immediately.
Quincy from Washington
I have dry skin and find this powder does a great job of setting my makeup without making my skin look dry and it also gives a nice smoothing effect:)
AJW1 from Ohio
I've been using this for months, and just thought I was hideous. Then I realized that it was this powder making my pores look huge (how is that even possible?) and literally causing my foundation to break up and pool within 45 minutes. It's an all-day grease fight with this. I just switched back to bare minerals and--poof!--no more problems. I feel human again. How does this work for anyone?
EddiRN from Wisconsin
I got a sample of this and am hooked and will never buy another setting powders again. I actually threw away my Tarte and Kat Von D setting powders. It's pricey but for what it does for me, it's worth it.
My face is dry and sensitive as well as red and easily irritated from Rosacea. I never know if a new product will make my skin painful and inflamed. I was so pleasantly surprised by this powder! It goes on smoothly, doesn't settle into fine lines, irritate, or cause more dryness. It works great as a setting powder, does its job all day. Unexpectedly, this powder evened out my skin tone without foundation. It doesn't cover like a foundation of course, but it tones down my redness. It's a miracle worker for me because I have more confidence when I don't feel like people are staring at my fiery face. Now I get that feeling even on days I don't want to wear a full face. I feel like people see *me* instead of my skin issues.
I would buy this product again and again.
Jill from Texas
Great setting powder, but like all powders you eventually have to re apply. It brightens and pills your pores nicely and i would really recommend. I also switch between this powder and the Kylie translucent powder.
PS from Timberlake NC
I just purchased the Cover FX foundation so I tried the Cover FX translucent powder to set it. Perfect combo!
Best powder I've tried
Lori H from Green Bay, Wisconsin
I've tried dozens of different powders over the years. This is BY FAR the best. It gives EXCELLENT coverage for my very pale and uneven skin tone. I'm on my 2nd jar, and will continue buying it, even though it costs more than I prefer to spend. It's worth it!
