It's ok...Spot on...This is my favorite setting powder!!...its nice, a typical translucent setting powder, I prefer the makeup forever translucent powder but this is nice for pictures, although I do notice that after a while my face starts to look a little oily (even though my skin is pretty dry- although not overly dry) so I have to take a towel or tissue and wipe off where I applied the powder and reapply it, whereas the makeup forever powder keeps me matte for at least 3 hours without reapplying
What it is:
An award-winning, silky powder with a touch of sheer coverage to set makeup for lasting wear.

What it does:
Translucent Loose Setting Powder locks in makeup for long-lasting wear, without adding weight or texture. This bestseller creates a modern, matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage, while it absorbs oil and reduces shine all day.

The pros know why it's their favorite: It’s a little denser than an average powder, providing super-smooth, even application and blending. This no-flashback formula means you'll look great in photos, and it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the look of fine lines and imperfections. These truly translucent shades work on all skin tones—from the fairest to the deepest.

No lie!...Love it...Also I noticed that when applying by itself it acts as a nice, natural looking color but it can look a bit "muddy" when applied over foundation....I was hoping to have a pinker face color for the winter- more like rosy cheeks than fake tan and I liked the idea of copper rose but it was more copper colored with hardly even a tint of rose- I still like the color just now what i'd hoped for- also a little bit more glitter than I like I think warmth is a little less glittery but again I was hoping for a pinkish color
