Most Helpful Positive Review Love the powder, But.....
Container cracks around the edge and powder falls out. Has happened with every one I have purchased. Have been very careful to not screw lid too tight but still happens. Cheap plastic.
Most Helpful Critical Review Will not purchase again
I love this product but this is the third time I have purchased it and the screw top part of the container has cracked and eventually fallen away making using the product too messy to use. I'm only halfway through the powder and I have to throw it out.

I tried this for my medium tone skin and I love the smooth formula and how it applies but, if you want it to help the under eyes to pop out I say go for the lighter tone.
Beautiful when applied right

So I've tried it a couple of ways. A brush does not give the powder the right finish and left a huge mess on my bathroom counter. I ended up but the Laura puff that's sold for the loose setting powder. Wow!! Total game changer. Also love that I can wash and dry it with my bath towels in the machines. Powder doesn't leave a cast or make me look dry. I'm also using the Hydration primer from Laura Mercier.
Wow love this for my dry skin

I love this. I wore it in the humidity of Florida and my makeup felt great and didn't budge. I have dry to oily skin. This stuff is amazing. I didn't want to pay for it but it was worth it !!

I've been looking for a setting / blurring powder to help reduce the appearance of milia. I apply it over my tarte shape tape. This product works remarkably well! Its been a game changer for me and definitely lives up to the hype. Skin looks flawless! It can be an expensive addition to your beauty routine, but worth every penny. If you're looking at a setting powder, purchase this one. Highly recommended.
Light finishing powder

Very smooth & light weight powder not wrinkle settling at all, the best!
Lynn05 from Louisiana
This is absolutely without a doubt the best loose powder on the market today! It is light, silky and soft, but holds up very well throughout the day. Keeps the shine down and holds up in the warm humid weather of the south!

I absolutely love this powder. It never leaves me cakey and it makes me so smooth!
I love it !

believe the hype. the setting powder locks your look down and lasts a fantastically long time (for me)

Great color, sad it doesn't come with the puff applicator.

Beautiful finish, matte, stays on all day. Very light on the skin.
Daijah from Pennsylvania
I really enjoy using this setting powder, because I feel like it complements my darker complexion well without giving off any cast. This is Definitely a shade friendly powder! Way to go! :)
I don't like the look at all.

Not a good match-the light is too light and the medium is too dark.
Broke me out terribly
Msmorgan from Winchester va
I bought this with high hopes based off of the reviews it had and seeing so many beauty gurus raving about it. I am extremely pale cool toned skin and bought the lightest shade they had to offer. I believe original. It made me look yellow. It also caused my foundation to look cakey. I wanted to love it but it broke me out horribly. My first day wearing it was a 9 hour work day and when I came home I saw bumps under it. When I took my makeup off I had very painful white heads and could feel cystic acne coming on. The next day after doing mask and trying to clear my skin up I figured maybe it was my fault so I tried again. Same result. Took me a week to clear my skin up and I went back to my Maybelline translucent loose setting powder. No acne. I tried this again because it was burning a hole in my drawer and I was upset about my purchase. Broke out yet again. I've tried only wearing it for short periods and I always end up looking like a pizza face so I gave it away. If you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts I do not suggest this.

Beautiful translucent powder. Very soft and sheer. Gives my face a polished look.
I will purchase the full size next time
Melisa from Atlanta, GA
This powder set my foundation really well. I put my makeup on, put this over it, put my mascara on. After a 12 hour day my makeup looked exactly the same as it did before I left the house.
My eyelids and eye area is very oily. With this powder I am able to wear mascara literally all day long without getting even the smallest amount of mascara under my eyes. I used to look like a raccoon after just a couple hours of mascara. I no longer have the problem.
Also, before purchasing this powder, I had some stress acne going on. This makeup really blurs some of my problem areas really well.
I bought the mini, unsure if I would like it. Well, I love it and I will be purchasing the big one next time!
Btw I have combination skin that is sensitive and acne prone. I live in the south. And this makeup helped keep me looking airbrushed all day. Whereas I'm used to looking like a greaseball from all the Georgia humidity.
Once you've tried it you understand
Thawk from Chicago
This is my favorite setting powder hands down. I've tried a few other big name powders over the years and always end up back with the Translucent loose setting powder.
Amazing setting powder. My new favorite. I'm glad
Candy A. from Forest Park, GA
Absolutely perfect finish! My fine lines are blurred and makeup stays matte without looking cakey.
Laura Mercier is the only brand that works for me!
DeniseL from Arkansas
This is the only Translucent Loose Setting Powder that really works for me. I've tried other brands, cheap and expensive, that claim to be translucent but they change the color for my foundation or the matte finish doesn't last very long.
Do not use this powder if your skin is dry!
Nikki from Orlando, FL
This powder would be excellent for people with oily skin! It's finely milled, and if my skin didn't need the extra hydration, it would have been beautiful.
Megan from Cocoa, FL
I purchased this having never tried setting powder before. I use CC Cream and was previously using power foundation on top to set, but if felt too heavy. This setting powder is EVERYTHING! It's so light and it blurs away fine lines and pores. My skin tends to get oily throughout the day and this helps with that as well. It's expensive, but I will definitely repurchase!
Shopaholic from undisclosed
This is the best setting powder I have ever used by far! I have very oily skin and have never found anything to keep me matte all day like this does. Skin looks airbrushed and I rarely have to touch up with this powder. Love it!
Did not meet the hype
Dee from New Hampshire
I high expectations for this setting powder, due to the reviews and the long time usage by many people as it's a cult favorite. However, I have this and I have Elf and Huda setting powder as well. As someone who is fairly new to full face makeup, it was driving me crazy transferring on my masks and I just wanted to stay in place. So I went a little crazy and bought multiple different setting powders as well as sprays. When I got this I thought for sure this was the one. I will say that it doesn't smudge my makeup, it doesn't change the color but the transfer it's still there. from the first time I used my elf setting powder until now it has never transferred my makeup on to my mask. I cannot say the same for this. Overall is a good setting powder and I plan to keep using it and trying different things and playing with it. But if you want a natural look with just a setting powder to hold it in place, save a few dollars and by the elf one because it also didn't smudge my makeup nor change it colors and it transferred much less than this one did. I just don't think that it's worth the hype that it gets.
Does the job
Maxine from undisclosed
The powder goes on smooth and lives up to its name "translucent". My makeup is set for at least 8 hours or more.

As a black woman I am completely thrilled to have this product match my skin tone & provide the coverage I need to reduce shine
