I recently purchased this product alongside the new Candid foundation (I reviewed the foundation separately...love). I always use a setting powder after applying my foundation so I have used many in my time. I have been using Thrive's CC cream foundation and their setting powder. I decided to give the Candid products a try and I am pretty impressed. I like the way it feels on my skin, I like the way it sets my make up. I use a 10x magnifying mirror to review my make up before I leave the house and the first time I used this Candid combo, I was shocked at how well my make up looked. You honestly couldn't tell I was wearing any. My face looked like I had a natural flawless complexion and I was immediately very excited about this new find. This does come in two different shades and 001 seemed like the best powder color for my skin tone. I did not experience any of the "ghost" effects some other reviewers are talking about. Maybe they are over-applying? Not blending or setting with a good brush? I am not sure, but I can say that of all the setting powders I have ever used, this is my new favorite and I would definitely recommend it.
It's a setting powder. I deal with my combination skin, which means I accept the grease I don't think I deserve as it appears throughout the day. I don't wear foundation daily, so I don't really need a setting powder for tinted moisturizer. That being said, I did try this product out for a while since I received it free for reviewing purposes. It's fine. It's a setting powder that is affordable, but it's not a miracle worker. I didn't notice it doing more than just setting my face. My main problem was the packaging, which made it seem like the product wasn't worth the hassle. The lip that covers the product made it so difficult to get any product out that it was hard to work with. Otherwise, it's fine! But you may find more bang for your buck elsewhere.

I use this loose powder every day. It stays on well and soaks up oily spots.

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
Doesn't leave a white cast, feels so soft and silky on the skin. I lean a tad bit oily through out the day, so if you lean completely oily I would say no. Wear time is about 5-7 hours on my skin depending if I'm outside walking around in the heat. Great powder I love it, would re-purchase!!!

Such an awesome product by Revlon! It was such a good price, and the packaging is so smart. It doesn't tell you that it has a nice closing insert over the holes to dispense the powder. This helps it from not constantly coming out and leaking all over the place! Honestly a game changer. Also, it was the perfect shade and perfect formula for my skin. I can get super oily in summer and this helped to set my este lauded foundation really nice! I just love it.

I'm very picky about powders and this is my favorite drugstore powder. I apply it with a damp sponge or puff. It reminds me of Too Faced etherial setting powder. It doesn't blur much, add coverage or totally control oils, but it sets everything softly and naturally without making me look creasy or cakey.

I wanted something to set my concealer and also brighten my eyes a little but i didn't want to spend a ton of money. This did not disappoint. It does all of that and it did last the while work day.
I have used more expensive brands that i didn't like as much

I think this sets foundation nicely. It doesn't give you any sort of weird coloring or cakey feeling. Overall a nice powder.

dont know theres bad reviews. use a kabuki brush and no problem. covers good.
Ag from Ct
This works really well when you just finished your makeup. It will set it plus make your foundation and concealer be less wet and more matte!
Shanice from Staten Island, NY
I must say this product is good. But the packaging is not good. The application process is too much and very messy. I would of liked it to come with its own buffer or something that would make application easier for people that's on the go. Overall I loved how it made my face look. I had a nice smooth and clean feeling and look. But I would not be buying again.

I used this to set my undereyes then my entire face. The only real issue I had with it was the packaging, getting the product to come out
Mickey from New York
This powder is very soft! It feels almost similar to the Bare Minerals loose powder. I got the lightest of the two shades, but it was still too dark for my fair skin. I'm not sure if it was the foundation I was using or something else, but it it was too dark. I was fairly impressed with how well and quickly it seemed to set my makeup, but I didn't get to wear it for long as my foundation was darker in the areas that I had placed it (think reverse/opposite contour videos), so I had to take it off.

It definitely works as a setting powder but when taking pictures you can see the product horribly.But other than that ,you cant tell and its fine.It can be a little messy.
Mikayla from Salem
I bought this when it was on sale and it's very smooth and I like it for under my eyes! It looks very natural!
HOWEVER, how can this be named PhotoReady ??? The flashback on this is unreal! I wish I could attach photos to this review because I recently tested the flashback on the back of my hand and it literally was white in the photo with my flash.
So for everyday use, totally nice! But if you're planning to be taking photos, don't get this.

I absolutely loved how well it covered my face and blended. I love that can't tell that I have it on my face but makes my face looking better.
MARIAH from fl
so i really like this stuff it does the job and most of these are really messy but this one has a little lid that you use to cover up the hole so that when you open it, it doesnt go everywhere
Not happy customer from Marietta Georgia
Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Pay the extra money and get something that actually works.
Megan19 from Jacksonville, NC
i would say this setting powder definitely does what it is intended to do. I liked it.
Shayla12 from Dallas, Tx
Love this powder! Pretty basic powder and easy to apply. I use it everyday to help even out and take some of my shine away. Only thing I didn't like was the plastic lid on the inside. I cut it out because it was hard to get the power out.

This stuff was really great. I enjoyed the natural look it gave

I'm not a huge fan of powder but this one works well

I received this product complimentary from Crowdtap. I dont usually use a setting powder but I thought I would try this one. I really liked it. It blends well. The only issue that I had with it was that it was a little messy when using it but other than that it was amazing.
bv11 from sa, tx
I received this complimentary and I loved it with the whole candid line. It sets beautifully and leaves a natural (very very) soft matte look. it blends well into my skin and honestly, leaves y skin looking fresh all day long. If youre on a budget, i recommend this!
