Best under eye setting powder ever. If you have fair skin with yellow undertones I highly recommend!...I'm still giving this product 4 stars because it's a great quality product, and I think I may see a difference when I look at my face really hard or change the lighting... i have the color diffused light which is a pale pearly yellow powder. I have very pale asian skin with yellow undertones. on my cheeks especially next to my nose I have some red spots (nothing crazy) so I use this powder as a 'diffusing' mechanism to maybe make the red spots less noticeable.
