love it...Spot on...I'm in love with this powder !!!...I used the puff to set my whole face and it was okay hence the 4 stars, because Im not sure if its the foundation that I used but compared to a pressed powder I usually use to set my face I feel like the loose powder broke down the foundation a little quicker than I like but again still left the skin smooth and true to color.
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.

- 100% said it's the key to long-lasting makeup and ensures makeup lasts throughout the day

Love it...It's ok...It does work great and it'sn't cakey....It does mattify and I dont think I am too oily but no matter which foundation I use- ranges from liquid to powder to cream, and even with or without a primer- I still need to reapply after 6 hours to the area between my eyebrows.

Love it...love it!...I loved this powder for months....The powders I were used to, while passable, were obvious and a bit chunky and sort of meh, but I set out in the hopes of finding a cruelty free powder without color due to my paleness, which is hard to buy for, and wouldn't bring back horrifying flashbacks to high school face powderings.

For flawless all-over setting, apply with the Lock-It Setting Powder Brush (sold separately). To bake or set under-eye concealer, use the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush (sold separately).
