Most Helpful Positive Review A MUST for oily skin in hot and humid climate.
I recently moved to NC and it's hot and humid all the time. I have very oily skin (the entire face not just the T zone). Anyone who lives down south knows that foundation is a challenge because it melts off your face in the heat. I did some research and powder is the way to go for oily skin, do not go with liquid foundation.
I'm naturally tan so I bought the 220 (natural Beige) shade. I originally bought the liquid foundation but returned it because after 8 hours outside my face was a shiny disaster. I put the powder to the test: I went outside and did manual labor and sweat my butt off, I couldn't believe how well it controlled the oil and shine, my savior!!! Even if you have normal or combination skin still consider powder in the summer time trust me.
The shade matched my skin tone to perfection it disappears and provides light to medium coverage. It looks more natural than liquid because it doesn't cover your actual skin but blends in and covers redness. I had multiple people say they couldn't tell I was wearing makeup. It's great for oily skin and if you have large pores it covers that up to.
I also highly recommend buying a moisturizer with spf designed just for oily skin, don't use liquid foundation on top of your moisturizer just use the powder and you'll see a big difference in terms of oil and shine control. Wow I'm sold and hooked!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
The one redeeming factor about this powder is the Porcelain color is a perfect match for fair skin that has yellow undertones. Other than that, I tried this powder a few times with the matching foundation, and hated it every time. Now, my skin tends to be drier during winter and this stuff is supposed to be for normal to oily skin. So it could be that it just wasn't the right formula for my skin type. But either way, the coverage was not good, both foundation and powder clung to every little dry spot no matter how moisturized my skin was, and my face was far from matte and poreless. I do not recommend this product to anyone who has even the slightest bit of dryness to their skin, nor to someone who likes good coverage.

This powder makes my face itch like no other. I tried and tried but no matter what it made my face feel uncomfortably itchy, mind you, no rash or breakouts, guessing it's the perlite in it. Perlite is a volcanic glass used commonly used as potting soil. Google it 😉
Great powder - stays on, smooth, not cakey

I like this powder! it goes on smooth, doesn't look cakey
Good color but don't like case.

Hard to get the powder part flipped up, get out applicator, apply the lift up again to put it back. Case is small.
new holy grail

🤦🏻♀️ from nys.
i thought i was gonna love this bc i loved the foundation and concealer but the translucent one had so much flashback 🤦🏻♀️
Willis from Grand Junction, CO
I love it as a setting powder; all over face. Good for a quick makeup day
Ari from WV
Great powder if your on a budget. The translucent does well as a setting powder for my concealer. It's probably not the most fancy thing on the market but it does the job.
BA from OHIO
I've been using this powder forever. It's so amazing and makes the skin look so soft. Does not emphasize any texture at all. Get it!!
Helps with my dark under eye
Veronica from Stanton
I had no intentions of buying this at all but bought it spur of the moment. I'm so glad I did. It was a great buy! I put it on top of my concealer to cover the darkness under my eyes and it does an amazing job!
Fast makeup routine

No need for a liquid base, the coverage is fine, by itself. Wide variety of shades available.
The only powder I need!
Felicity from New Mexico
Hands down the best power I have ever found. It keeps me matte all day and I'm an oily skin girl. This doesn't sit in my fine lines and sets concealer perfectly.
First time buy and I would purchase again
Breanna from Michigan
Good and affordable powder to set foundation with or help with shine throughout the day.
My all time favorite powder
Teshy from USA
This is the best powder! It's natural on the skin, non-cakey, and light weight. It's great for setting makeup, lr just to smooth your skin. I don't even set it sometimes. It's really beautiful. I haven't found any other powder that is as beautiful on the skin as this—high end or drug store. I only really use pressed powders, as it's way more quicker and compatible.
For reference, I'm Fenty 385/390, Nars Caracas, Milani 10 Golden Tan (in the winter only, or mixed w Fenty 390) and I use Toffee. It's slightly warm, so in the winter it can be tooo warm, but it's so beautiful lol. The shade lighter seems too light..

Amazing product super nice !!!!!
Tan from New Mexico
Even, beautiful coverage that doesn't cake. I wore this over the fit me matte + poreless foundation and they complement each other so well. It was great staying power and does not break the bank. Overall, I am impressed.

This product goes on so smoothly and evenly.

Light weight. Dulled the redness
Been using for mannny years
MakeupMama from Texas
This powder is absolutely amazing quality for the price. I have been using it so long I can't even remember what I used before I started purchasing it! Doesn't make the skin look powdery or cakey and smoothes out the skin beautifully while minimizing the appearance of pores.
I just bought my third compact
Esther from Sacramento, CA
I love using this product over a stick or cream foundation when I am wearing heavy makeup or on it's own when I want a more natural look. It conceals acne well without piling up or drying out my skin even more.
Jen from Michigan
Need basic cover, need some basic colors, need a cheep compact. This is for you! Make sure you have a good primer or base like elf pore putty (cheep) or tarts base tape (expensive) before putting it on. If you don't have any prime it does wear off by end of day and does not do
Coverage. Works well if you prime!!!
Solid for light coverage
Sarah from Chattanooga, TN
I quit wearing liquid foundation every day since COVID and have been wearing this as my daily base for work instead. It allows me to feel barefaced and avoid makeup zits from breathing into a mask while still covering over my pores. I have some acne scars and redness that this doesn't really quite cover, and before it wears down a bit I sometimes look a little like a ghost, but for just a slight blurring effect that still feels weightless I really like this.
