Spot on...love it...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...Oily Skin- I have tried numerous setting powders, there are a few others that were great, but once a friend insisted I try this one, It was a match made in heaven (for my skin) With my skin being so oily, this setting powder has made my skin look like a dream without be cakey ......the staying power is practically a full days work!

No Mess...Love it...I even get oily with EL double wear, and I tried LM powder, TF powder,,etc but this powder is no.1 for oil control, I don't think this makes your skin blurred but it really keeps your skin mate all day I don't even need to blot after 12hr (it was rainy day too) I recommend it on only oily area cuz I sometimes makes skin look patch, ONLY ON OILY AREA!...Now, I have wasted about a third/half of the product in here trying to find better ways to use it( I do that with pretty much every product, unfortunately, but luckily, there's a surprising amount of product in here)and I really recommend using a full coverage brush to get a better result.

Love it...love it!...I purchased this product because I loved the lyric yellow setting powder on the kvd palette but then realized it didn't have that hint of yellow but I still gave it a try and it's amazing it has a hint of sparkles but unnoticeable on the face it highlights good and doesn't leave a white powder on the face like other powders...In fact, last Saturday after a long day working a benefit, being in and outside, with extreme heat and a sudden downpour and my makeup being on from 11am, I fell asleep in it ( I was exhausted and just sacked out) and when I woke up the next morning it still looked pretty decent.

It's OK...love it...I've tried all the popular setting powders before and they all did not agree with my dry skin and made my skin look crapey and old... I heard that this powder is great for dry skin so I gave it a try and I'm happy to say that I FINALLY have a powder that looks amazing and smooth, and doesn't age me....I use this under my eyes and all over my face and then I use my Laura mercier powder, only in my tzone area, because I get super oily there and I find that if I use this all over, I look a little more oily in my tzone than I would like.

love it...LOVE IT....The ONLY drawbacks are the flip top is sometimes hard to flip open (swear I'm gonna break a nail one of these days) and when you tap your brush or sponge on the screen the powder goes onto the brush BUT a lot of powder also puffs out in a fine cloud all around in the air and I can't help but feel like I might be losing a lot product into thin air every time I use it lol....I usually have oily skin and I will say at the end of the night I did notice a slight shine in my T zone areas but by that time the makeup was coming off so I could get ready for bed anyway.

Love It...It's OK...I saw that some people said it was too white or chalky, and that may be true for them, but I think it may be due to too much product on the face, because I am extremely fair and did my friend's makeup who's extremely dark and set it with this, and once it was blended into the skin it didn't cause any ashyness....3 suggestions - 1)not really for all skin tones as stated since even on my pale skin, it does create a paler complexion, 2) Only use in T zone as it does create a fairly matte effect; 3) I found it works better with my normal powder brush than the intended fan brush, so save yourself the $.
