I love the product. It truely does away with the shine. I just wish the powder puff would last. My puff always wears out before I finish using the powder. It comes apart and the stuffing falls out. Other powder puffs I buy separately, are smaller and don't do the job. I would love it if you would either add an extra puff or put one out there that a consumer could buy separately.
I am disappointed in the quality of this product compared to the Shine Free Pressed Powder that has been discontinued. I had been using the pressed powder for many years and LOVED it. I use many high-end make up brands, but was always devoted to the Shine Free Pressed Powder that I've used since the 1990s! I would have easily paid 4 times the price. The loose version doesn't measure up. The coverage isn't as good. Also, it's too big and messy to carry in my purse. I don't know why Maybelline discontinued the pressed version and kept selling the loose powder. Bad choice, Maybelline.

The actual powder is really lightweight and easy to use but it made my foundation change color immediately upon use.

if maybelline ever gets rid of this product, I will literally be so upset! wish they had a better shade range!

I use this product after I put on my makeup. I've never quite been able to find a shine control product that's worked as effectively as I wanted it to, until I started using this stuff! Though there is still some slight shine a couple hours after application, it's much better than the shine control sprays I've used in the past!

This is my go to setting powder! I have normal to combo skin and I love the way this makes my skin look and feel. Does not cake up or look dry underneath my eye's.. It has a real light weight and is very finely milled in my opinion. I've tried a lot of other powders at the drugstore but this is the best one I've tried. I bought a back up too because I don't want to be without it when I get ready. It works and is pretty budget friendly I would definitely recommend it.

I have such complicated feelings for this product, since it works pretty well for me. However, I see a lot of the issues with the product too.
Here's the deal: I use liberal amount of a medium coverage, natural finish drugstore foundation and use a normal amount of this powder on a fluffy kabuki brush to set places in my face which may crease or get oily, then I use very little on the rest of my face. A little goes a long way with this, and you have the potential to look cakey really easily if you use too much, especially if you're wearing a matte finish foundation. I'm also pretty pale, and the light shade of this powder works really well for me, especially for the price. The issues with this product are that it makes drier skin look flakey and cakey, and the shade range is pretty abysmal; very few melanated people can use these products without getting lots of flashback. The container of this product is also a problem; I've re-bought this multiple times and every single time I have, the top of the container has cracked or fallen off at some point. I'm not particularly rough on my makeup so I think it's kind of a packaging design flaw. My bottom line is that I would recommend this to paler people who don't struggle with dry skin and I would recommend using a really light touch with it. The cost, the amount you get, and the availability of this product is great. I just wish it was slightly more accessible to more people.

It has some shimmers on it so when you put it on your skin you can tell

I started using this powder for a very long while. I had a few last uses for it and when I used it.......it smelled like VOMIT. Or something like it. Overall, it smelled BAD/ROTTEN TO THE CORE/FOUL.

I tried this product to find a cheaper setting powder. I usually use the Cover FX setting powder. Although I hate paying more money for it, I think I'm going to stick to the Cover FX. This powder didn't help control my oil and it creases a looooot. Sorry Maybelline but it's a no from me!

Such a great product that does exactly what it's advertised to do! It also lasts a long time! Perfect amount!

I have super oily skin so I tried this out. This is a holy grail. A little bit of it goes a long way. It kept my face matte all day and controlled my oil.

this product doesn't work as well for me as it's apparently working for everyone else, but for some reason my skin likes to be complicated, so it's nbd. it works abt the same as other products i've tried, and i still really like it - especially for the price. overall, if you want a decent powder that's inexpensive, i'd say this is the way to go.

I've tried many expensive loose powders, this is a great setting powder and just as good as powders at a higher price point

This is my favorite setting powder. I was going to try a more expensive brand, but it's hard for me to switch when this product performs perfect throughout a long day. I put to the side the cotton applicator it comes with and apply the powder with a damp beauty blender over my foundation and concealer with a press-in motion. A lite application will cover beautifully so a little can go a long way. 10/10 would recommend. *note: I keep the cotton applicator and use it for my free hand when applying eyeliner so I don't touch my face with my oily hands*
Val from Indiana
I've tried so many loose powders for setting my makeup and was very surprised at how great it works. A very little goes a long way. It didn't make my makeup look cakey or patchy, even after a long day of wear. Will definitely repurchase!
Becks from Irving tax
I really liked this product especially if you are oily.
I have extremely oily skin and this mattified really well.
Only thing is I have medium to light skin and I got the medium toned one and it got a bit darker but I was able to work with it.
Selena from Oregon,USA
My skin can be very oily in my T-Zone at the end of a long day, which I personally do not like due to the sweaty look. This powder really does the trick for me without appearing "caked". It sets my concealer well, and brushes off easily while making me matte. An inexpensive way to make your foundation last.
niceelise from San Leandro, CA
I bought this product bc I know Alissa Ashley, a makeup-youtuber, used to use it and swore by it. This product is decent in terms of oil control and long wear, but the shade range is SO limited and the powder is not transparent so the medium shade doesn't exactly match my skin tone. Also I didn't experience any issues in reapplying the powder later in the day.
Cass from Searcy
Holy mess. The puff is perfect and I love the powder and the way it melts into my skin but there is no way to close the sifter and the cap doesn't screw on. The puff is now covered in powder and the thing keeps popping open 🙄
Kass from Texas
This isn't totally perfect and doesn't last a full 12 hours, but for the price who cares?
I'm trying to spend less on makeup basics (powder, eyeliner, etc.) so I can splurge on foundations and eyeshadows.
This replaced a $20 setting powder and works nearly as good. I like that it has a tiny tint, just evens out my face that little bit more.
It's not as messy and flyaway as most loose powders I've used. I tip some into the lid and use a powder brush to tap it where I need it. It does a good job reducing oil on my forehead and nose area for a good part of my day.
I'll definitely keep buying this.

Ha - can't believe I'm posting on a makeup site, but I've used this for a couple years and love it. I'm in my 50s and take good care of my skin, but don't like being shiny. Now that I shave my head I even dust the bald top along with my forehead and it keeps me looking professional and sharp during the workday. The tint is minimal and very natural. Nobody knows but me. The only negative is the design of the sifter. The last 20% of product is hard to get out of the container. I'm unsure if it's because there isn't enough product weight left in the jar to push product thru the sifter, or if the sifter itself gets build up so the holes are smaller. I haven't tried to wash/dry the sifter to see if that works. I usually just throw it away and dip my brush...but it's harder to control how much product you are using that way. Overall I love this powder and use it everyday.
Kayla from Virginia
This powder is amazing!! I use it every day whether I am wearing makeup or not. Before I got this my face used to feel oily about 30 minutes after I did my morning face routine. Now, it feels great all day with only one application and only feels slightly oily around 7 pm but is STILL not shiny! The only thing that could be improved is if a little loop was added to the puff to make it easier to hold, but I can live with that. My face is so happy now and I will definitely buy this forever!! If you have oily skin or combo skin like me, this is a must have product!
