Fav !...I love...Great For Dark Skin...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!
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.

Translucent: Perfect for fair to medium and tan skin tones.
Translucent Medium Deep: Ideal for medium-deep to the deepest skin tones.

What else you need to know:
Renowned Makeup Artist Laura Mercier uses Setting Powder to set foundation and prolong its wear, so she applies it after foundation and concealer, and before applying powder-based color. An added benefit: it helps powder blush or bronzer go on more evenly.

Find Your Perfect Powder: While makeup artists and beauty junkies select a powder based on texture, finish, and skin type, others may find it easiest to choose based on skin type alone.

This professional-quality powder is noncomedogenic, non-caking, and dermatologist tested.

Research results:
In a consumer test on 32 women after 2 weeks:
- 100% said it's the key to long-lasting makeup and ensures makeup lasts throughout the day
- 100% said it is lightweight and does not look cakey on skin
- 100% said it controls and reduces shine
- 97% said it absorbs excess oil

In Love...Love it...I'm dark skin and the darker setting powder makes me looks less ashy and brings out my undertone...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.
