Rated 4.25 out of 5 stars
I use the powder to set and sometimes bake under my eyes. The powder is lite weight and easy to apply. The packaging has a slide to close off the powder from spilling everywhere. Powder in general can be messy but I have minimal problems with this powder being messy since it comes out in small increments.
The powder is yellow but not Sacha Buttercup yellow where you will literally look yellow lol. It has a hint of yellow that truly brightens your under eyes. It does not leave me with a white cast and I even use it to sharpen my contour.
The powder price is great in my opinion but I use a combination of high end and drug store. This powder is truly my favorite powder. I've used Dermablend, Laura Mercir, Sacha Buttercup, Cody Airsprun, and the list continues. This powder does not dry out my under eye and when my oils starts coming through it does not budge.
I've been wanting to try this product forever and waited until ulta was selling it because I dont shop anywhere else for my makeup. First of all, for the price it's extremely small but I get the markup value and I understand smaller brands may need to price it this way so I got it anyway. My biggest issue was that when I applied the setting powder it would look beautiful at first but then would break apart when I would apply setting spray. You could see the powder with little white specks and see it broken apart in patches on my face. I experimented trying it dusted on lightly and with baking under my eyes and jawline, I tired multiple different brands of setting sprays as well. I tried it with a few different foundations under. No matter which combination i used it was the same thing, as soon as I used setting spray you could see patches of powder all over my face. Even with paying attention to how I blend. It was sad because I really loved the packaging and wanted to like this product. It was also shocking because I couldn't find any other reviews reporting this issue but when I returned it at ulta, the cashier told me a lot of people report the same problem. I ended up exchanging it for the too faced powder and am so much happier with that powder. No issues at all.

Have ised this a week now from the hot weather to cooler coastal weather and i love it! Makes my skin look even and matte who h saysd a lot becasue i have very oily skin! The only thing i didnt like is that even with the plastic lid turned to cover thw holes to stop the powder from coming out, well it still did. Opened thw outer lid and poof powder evwrywhere. I just have to be careful when opening, but love thw powder!

Yvonne from Connecticut
So, I really wanted to love the product. But the challenges that caused me to return them are:
- Unrealistic colors (too highly pigmented with orange)
- left my skin super dry
- Siam creases in pores despite using primer

This is a lovely light finishing powder. I'm 62 and can lightly bake with this. It does not settle in lines! Gives a flawless finish!! Love it!!

Ordered this powder during the 21 days of beauty sale. When I was peeling the tape off of the lid the seal broke off and all of the powder spilled on the floor.
BT from Yuma, AZ
This my absolute favorite setting powder! I use it to set my concealer and all over my face to set my liquid foundation. I love the way my skin looks and does not leave a white cast, it blends beautifully. The only minor issue I have is that I have to be super careful when utilizing it as the little cap does fall off pretty easily but other than that, it's perfect. :)

This is my FAVORITE powder! I am super super picky and cheap. This is worth the buy im super fair skined and I use Oat! I got 4 of these during the ulta sale 3 for me one for my teenager! We will not use any other powder!

It's been six years since launch when i first tried it and this is the best setting powder i have ever used. Repurchased time and time again. Every time ive tried something else, ive returned to this. Not cakey, not flakey on my dry skin, and SETS your face. Amazing product.

I really wanted to love this product but didn't do well under my eyes and chin. I'm 34 so not too old but made me look significantly older by the end of the day.

PLEASE GET "PLANTAIN" back in stock! This brightens under your eyes, which is great for comtouring. Non-Cakey, great shade range for WOC, no ashy flashback, and blends well with your makeup foundation&concealer! This & Sacha are my #1&2 Favs!
Winter from Texas
I have light medium skin with acne scaring and texture. I don't like heavy powders and drugstore powders don't do enough. This keeps my face looking smooth even in humid texan heat. Worth the money
2hnessy from orange county
tbh id never buy this again. i saw reviews and had been wanting it for a while but i have acne prone and oily skin. i tried to wear this many diff ways, no primer, pimer, skin prep, & with all tehcniques it looked horrible each time. my other cheap powders from the drugstore work better than this lol
Zen from Texas
I love this powder! Its so fine it literally feels like flour on the face and sets like a dream.
Maddie from RI
The only powder I use haven't found one that compares to it
Alexis from cypress, TX
I absolutely love this product, every-time I use it, it instantly blurs my skin. Its perfect for baking or just for setting your makeup in the middle of the day. I have struggled to find a good setting powder but this one takes the cake.
Lara from IN
I find the formula comparable to 'holy grails' such as Laura Mercier: leaves a natural matte finish and blurred pores when applied with a puff. Even though it's not the best for oil control I really liked the overall finish and repurchased it. The moment I turned the second bottle around to get some product, the protective lid fell off and with it ALL of the powder. I tried to place the lid back but it was smaller so it wiggled and could not be secured. A whole bottle wasted, so I won't purchase again.
Brittney from New York
Honestly I never hated something so much. I bought this because I was told that it was good AS WELL as from an ulta employee. Tested it and honestly my makeup looked better without this. Instantly dried up my under eyes BAD, started separating the concealer and it was flaking off all my makeup.

Best Powder EVER
génesis from Forthworth Tx
left my makeup super smooth and soft and i don't have to worry about duration or flashback!
Miranda from CA
This powder creases and applies so horribly around my eyes to the point my skin looks super dry & patchy. I prep my skin using very hydrating products & primer. Will not buy again.
RaniaMeows from Pomona, CA
This is a beautiful product. I'm glad I bought it. I'm in need of a new powder as I'm on the oily side when I used to be always dry. And I've struggled with powders that either get cakes after a few hours, settle or don't trap oil as well as they claim.
This doesn't settle, little oil comes thru and you can powder again if needed very lightly without it looking harsh.
Best for the price and amazingly done. I'm off to buy another one soon as this beats all high end products I've tried.
Don't you ever stop making these! Please! ;D
Blane from New orleans
the top sifter thing falls out and you will lose product! Be sure to superglue it so you dont dump all your powder out.
The powder itself is good! Not life changing but I dont think powders vary that much.
