this setting powder changed my life. i’ve hated using powder for years because of my very dry skin, which is more dry now with retinoid use.. but my makeup was never set and would move around all day. i heard this was good for dry skin so i picked it up and it’s the softest, most beautiful powder i’ve ever tried. in comparison, the elf halo glow is not as glowy and soft but is still so much better than talc based setting powders. translucent works for very very fair skin and doesn’t really leave a cast of darkness like some light shades with pigment do. it’s expensive but i found it to be worth the money. get it!!!
