Great product. The color matched my skin and it sets the foundation very well. I like that it has sunscreen in it and makes it easier to reapply sunscreen throughout the day when I touch up my makeup. Perfect final step in my new makeup routine utilizing other products in this same Sheer Defense line. I got mine in the color "light".

Most Helpful Critical Review What's with the colors?!
Ok, the powder is good. I like it. It really blurs things and gives a nice non-powdery finish. But ... I cannot give it a 5 because of the range of colors. Have the manufacturers of makeup gone color blind? - no, I don't mean that in a good way; I mean it as in 'they CANNOT see colors' - I went all the way to Ulta to see the shades in person (I've learned the hard way not to trust the internet for colors). I am light, sometimes light-medium. Well, the Fair was white as baby powder. The Light was what other brands sell as Fair, and the Medium was chocolate brown. That's right. No shades in between the two. Even the sales girl had to laugh. I see this happening more and more. I was looking at some L'Oreal new face powders at Walmarts and I could not believe the colors: the lights are all Miss Piggy pink, the rest are assorted shades of peach/brick. What the Hades is going on?

I really like this setting powder it has great benefits and nice finishing and can retouch for protection. But don't get confused it a setting powder not a foundation.
Holy grail powder
Desi from Tacoma, wa
It definitely has a smell but I really like it. It's flowery but goes away as soon as your done putting it on but this powders amazing I've tried so many powders looking for one that's not cakey but has a very thin natural finish this looks great on top of literally anything wish they had more shades for sure but it's new if it sells well I'm sure they will come out with more but I must say it's an amazing powder doesn't settle into fine lines sets makeup without overly matte finish I've had issues with their powders looking waayyyy to cakey but this one truly doesn't do that or suck the life out of your skin I truly can't say enough on how amazing this is is u like a really white based blurring thick powder this is not that. I'm quite young but if u had mature skin and have issues with creasing this powder would be your best friend. I have a lot of issues with my under eye area creasing and looking dry and cakey this powder completely gets rid of that if u don't mind a scent I'd say for sure give it a shot!
Works pretty good, but not a fan of the smell
Michelle from AL
So far the powder itself seems to work fairly well—I used a setting powder to set my foundation and concealer, and then used this product as a last-step finishing powder to bring everything together after applying blush and highlight. I'm a fair-neutral skin tone and bought the fair, but could have used the light shade as well without much difference. I'm not a fan of the fragrance, it smells weird and floral at first but seems to fade quickly, but that's really my biggest complaint.
Great Coverage & Protection
Computer Nerd from Illinois
I work and go to school in front of the computer all day so I need something that will help protect my face from blue light radiation. I have tried several products but they end up leaving my face oily. So when I saw this in powder form I had to try. I was very disappointed in the number of shades. There's only 3 but since I'm not going anywhere anytime soon I decided to try it anyways for protection's sake. My complexion is on the darker side so I decided to get the darkest shade, medium. To my surprise, it matches perfectly. I love how it sits on my skin. Blurs out imperfections and has a nice matte look. I put it on after moisturizing and priming my face then set it with an SPF/RPF mist and I either respray the mist or touch up with the powder. Definitely buying this again. It can also be used instead of makeup since it has really good coverage.
Cal from Alabama
So far I'm really liking this. It looks and smells nice, and makes me feel extra protected. I don't really use makeup, but I'm having trouble finding an spf that doesn't make me look oily. Now I'm just putting this over my spf
Yuuki from undisclosed
I received this as a complimentary from influenster 3 months ago and I was disappointed because it's one shade darker than my skin tone. My fault though. I just used them 2 weeks ago to give it a try because I was also not confident that it's gonna match my skin tone. But I was wrong. It did match. The problem is, my face is darker than my neck. If it's a shade lighter, it would be perfect because I like how it blended on my face after using the concealer and foundation. It made them look smooth and not dry.
Repurchasing for sure!
Meg from Boise Idaho
I would definitely make sure your face is hydrated before putting this on and set it with a hydrating mist as well!
Love the smell!
Kristin Cook from Columbus, GA
I like this powder. I would say that it doesn't necessarily blend as well as some other powders I've had, but it's still a pretty good option for a powder, it smells nice, and I like the defense element of this line. | I received this product complimentary for my honest review.

Received complimentary. Still in the box, i can tell it's too dark from here. Have been a fan of physicians formula in the past.
Pabli93 from Vallejo CA
great for sealing makeup, it smells really good, i'm loving using it
JBD from Durham, NC
Was already not a fan of the products I put under this (also from this line, as I received a complimentary box of this line). This just added a chalky, unappealing finish over top. Still better than most drug store brands, but definitely doesn't compare to even a middle tier brand.
Glamxpao from Mexico
I received this by influenster! Really pretty and soft on the skin, love the smell and the coverage, the mirror and the brush are really great! Love this!!!
The packaging doesn't open completely
Yami from Brownsville
It is a lovely powder, too darker for me I will use it as bronzer. The packaging doesn't open completely so it is difficult to manage to get the product. But inside it has a good brush and a mirror, I like that.

I love this powder. It just makes everything come together
Great for oily combo skin!
Jujubear from Las vegas, nevada
The color I received was a darker shade so I use it more to bronze. I love the spf and matte finish. It keeps my oily skin in check and my face is not too oily at the end of the day. Must try!
Received this product complimentary.
Vanessahernandezx from Columbus
I received this product complimentary by Influenster! The shade I received was darker than expected so I was nervous it wouldn't work on my skin I had even considered using it as a bronzing powder but once the powder was on the brush I saw it was light and really it's buildable! The foundation to this line leaves a glow on the skin so if you are not a fan of that you can always follow with this powder to set it down for a more matte look. The brush is also very soft and application was smooth!
Annie from Orlando FL
This is an okay product. I normally use a loose powder with a translucent finish to set my makeup. This product does an okay job. It adds more color however you have to use a lot to really see the color or coverage.
Danie7 from Louisiana
This is a great finishing powder. It helps even out my skin tone when worn alone and provides a beautiful matte finish when I wear it on top of make up. However, I do not like the smell. There's a very distinct fragrance to it, and it lingers for quite some time. Other than that it is a great product! I received it complimentary to test.
Skgedvick from Detroit, MI
Received complimentary of influenster.
Super soft powder! I could've done without the fragrance. Is great for setting foundation but it changed the color of my concealer.
Kristen from undisclosed
I received this product free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review. This blurs imperfections and pores well, though I don't know how well the SPF works as I wore SPF under my makeup. It's heavily fragranced which I don't really like, though the smell distracts from the SPF smell. I wish there was a lighter color as the fair was still a little dark on my skin. All in all, this is a nice product though avoid it if you're sensitive to fragrances!
Great way to set makeup
Blm5078 from Fort Worth, TX
This did a great job of setting my makeup look. I love the budget price and that it kept my makeup in place.
Mcb486 from undisclosed
Nice light coverage to lock in your makeup look or to blur any oily spots. Love the spf!!
Very soft powder!
Skgedvick from Detroit, MI
Received complimentary of Influenster.
I believe I received the lightest shade available, and it was just a tad too light. This powder is incredibly soft, and is nice for setting everything except my under eye. I found with my usual Shape Tape it made the color a little off. It does have a fragrance which I personally could do without.
AnGiLi from Denver, CO
Even though it's a finishing powder, I normally use it after moisturizing my skin, for spf protection and some slight coverage. I received this powder complimentary for testing purposes.
