Rated 3.9 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Love powder, needs a better puff
I love everything about this powder. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was the lid cracks and the puff doesn't last but a couple weeks. I always have to buy new fluffy puffs, and they are not cheap... Its a shame to pay so much for the powder and the puff doesn't last through the life of the powder.

This loose powder smells like cologne, looks powdery and grainy on the face. I switched to the TRUblend loose powder which is slightly better. Please bring back Trublend microminerals foundation powder. Nothing comes close to it!
Reviewed by 550 customers Cracked lid
JBG1 from Georgia
I love this product, but the lid cracks and breaks 100% of the time! It is gently used and sits in my makeup drawer in it's own spot - never in a jumbled makeup bag or purse. With this last purchase, the bottom container also cracked!
I used to love this

The last time I purchased this powder it had a really pretty gold sparkle to it. I loved it. Unfortunately the top broke and it got everywhere. This new one doesn't have the same finish as my old sparkly one.
Long time user of this product.

I use it before I apply my primer and concealer which helps set both nicely and then again to set my makeup after applying. I apply over the sink because it can get a little messy...I leave the top of the container on then shake upside down so the powder puff gets most of the powder to help keep it from getting all over the place. This is my go to powder product plus it has a nice smell.

I chose 105 but it's still leaves me looking very yellow/orange. Perhaps I am applying too much or need to go to a different brand for wider color selection. I wouldn't use it to set my eyes etc. as it will leave an orange patch.
Elaina from Los Angeles
This product does it's job, but I have all day allergies wearing it include sneezing, runny nose all day not worth it. I'd rather invest in a product that won't do that
Cassidy814 from Pennsylvania
This powder smells like a 100 year old man... it's horrible. I can barely breathe even applying it. It makes my foundation look cakey and gross. The lid does not screw on so good luck if you drop it or travel with it.

The lid breaks

I love the product it goes on smooth. You don't really have to reapply.
Syd from Maryland
This powder makes my pores disappear and my skin looks absolutely flawless. I totally recommend, it's a great powder!
Bella from Houston
I have dry skin and if you prime and moisturize this powder goes over your foundation amazing !!! I was shocked to see the blurring effecting it gave .
Creat powder. Cheap lid
Mimi43 from Reading PA
With the last two products I bought, the lid cracked on side and broke. Lid is cheap, thin plastic.
Still the same, which is good!
MidMoMermaid from Missouri
This is the same powder I've been using since high school, and I'm in my 40's now. I thought because I've aged and my skin has changed, I've had to change my products. Nope! I went back to the store today and bought this and still works great on my Medium skin and also that noxzema smell I love brings me back! Love it.
good for dry textured skin
nouaevu from CA
I have really dry textured skin and I've been using this powder forever. its the best and so worth it for the price and the fact that its drugstore has made my skin look super flawless. hate matter so I wish they had a luminous version of this but overall amazing thank you for always making me look SNATCHED!
love it but...
jennk from PA
my favorite setting powder so far, but it oxidizes.
Krista22 from Portsmouth, United Kingdom
I have been using this powder for over ten years. it's amazing. One container lasts about a year and that's using it every day. Unlike others, I love the smell when you first open a new one! I will agree though that the lid tends to break. Definitely doesnt put me off buying it whenever I am back in canada.
Juls from Alexandria VA
This is the best drugstore loose powder I have tried, it makes my skin look so smooth and velvety, I use it for setting and finishing. It makes my foundation last all day.
It's has changed overtime
2Berrys from Liberty Texas
I use to ware this everyday of the week. But they do not make it like they use to. I always used slightly tinted with tiny a sparkle to it. You apparently don't carry or make it that way anymore. Now it looks like it caked onto your skin :(
Creases & Dries out the skin
glammbyangelina from California
I've used this loose powder on multiple occasions and each time an hour after finishing my makeup it begins to split my foundation and crease very heavily. This powder also is slightly drying. After a few uses I found that my eyes and lower chin were severely dry. I wouldn't waste my money on this.
MT from Napa, CA
I love this powder for baking. It's so funny because I reach for this more than my high end powders. It does have a strange smell that I can't put my finger on but it doesn't stay with you all day. The powder has amazing matte coverage and makes your makeup last all day!
Val from TN
All the shades oxidize horribly and orange
z_alm from Massachusetts
I have used this product for years and now my daughter does too!! The only thing about the product is the lid. It cracks within a couple of weeks. I use it everyday!! You would think Cover Girl would improve on their lid....
Best drugstore powder I've tried
OP from Barnstable
This does have a slight smell to it, almost like fresh laundry. It's kind of weird but it goes away after a minute. It gives such a nice finish to the face. It bakes well and works well for a quick dust all over the face. I almost like it better than my Kat Von D Translucent Setting Powder. I have not yet tested this for flashback though.
Selina from Darien, IL
I've been using it for a long time and love it.
Great for the price!
ashley from nj
i was surprised with how much i liked this product! the price makes it even better. it doesn't have flashback and it doesn't make your makeup look caked up. the only negatives i have for this product, are the fact that the lid doesn't close all the way/close tightly, so i don't recommend having it on its side, and the fact that it's so heavily scented. it smells almost like VapoRub. the scent is very strong, and made my eyes water a little, so if you have sensitive eyes/skin, i don't really recommend using it.

I use to get the loose powder product all the time, but now it has new packaging. I like to get the loose powder, because the translucent light is too light, but the medium is too dark. So I combine them.
But the product in the new packaging smells so horrible. It has WAY too much fragrance in it. I may have to find a different manufacturer of the loose powder, because when I put this on, I start coughing and clogs up my breathing.
Why do you have to mess up a perfectly good product with all the smell. It is a total turn-off.
