This is the BEST loose powder on the market!...This new loose powder is amazing! I’ve tried TONS of high end loose powders and this one is simply the best! ...I really really like this loose powder. I was scared it would give me a ghosty affect or not even work.

What it is:
A loose setting and mattifying powder that absorbs excess oil and sets foundation for all day wear.

What it does:
This airy, lightweight powder reduces shine, mattifies, and sets your makeup for a flawless, all-day look. This formula absorbs excess sebum and oil, and the ultra-thin mica minerals preserve your foundation's wear and color throughout the day. It’s available in two shades, translucent and deep, to fit across a wide range of skin tones.


Yes! Yes! Yes! This setting powder does everything it says. It covers so well, I often use it as a loose powder when I want to rock that “no makeup” look. ...Open carefully and don't dip you sponge because you'll loose 0.5g of product. Beyond upset! The foundation leaves a dewy look and then the powder sets matte which takes away the purpose of the foundation.

What it is: A brilliantly buildable, ultra-weightless, luxe setting powder that imparts radiant perfection in five shades formulated to match any skin tone.

Highlighted Ingredients:
- Amino-Acid-Treated Powder: Ensures color-true performance, even through sweat and sebum, with high water repellency, improved slip, enhanced feel, better skin adhesion, and improved payoff.
- Lighter-than-Air Proprietary Powder Blend: An ultra-light, pure powder blend that gives a barely-there feel on skin with a unique, sensorial application.

Ingredient Callouts: Free of parabens, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances.
