LOVE this powder. I use #4 mostly down my t-zone over GA LSF 4.5. It is just gorgeous. Usually I apply the foundation with the GA blender brush and the powder with a big fluffy brush. But today I left the apartment without makeup and ended up at Sephora (I had intended to go somewhere else that was non-makeup related, see how that turned out!), so while I was there I decided to put on my usual makeup. I used a blender sponge they have at the mirror stations (where they have the makeup removers, the disposable lip brushes, etc) to apply the foundation and it looked decent enough, but then I used the same sponge to apply the setting powder. Oh my god, wow! It looks amazing. It blends so beautifully, and the shades are a perfect beautiful match. When I got home I dug through my bathroom drawers and found my stash of makeup sponges. I'll be using those for a while now!

Makes my face and eyes sting. Probably the fragrance? Coverage is also very minimal and does not blur pores or imperfections enough to work even as a setting powder in my opinion...

This is a very nice setting powder with a matte finish that is good for blotting (touch ups). It has a little bit of pigment but is mostly translucent and imperceptible on the skin. I have shade 2 which is the lightest neutral color even though I wear 4 in GA Luminous Silk Liquid Foundation. This has a smaller compact than MAC Blot Powder in Medium, which has been a staple of mine for years. I found the smaller compact helpful when I had to pare down to a small evening bag (those rare occasions). Armani's powder seems to be slightly finer and disappears better, however; MAC's powder is $26 versus this one which is around 50 dollars, and they perform similarly, so while I think this is lovely, it makes financial sense to consider the less expensive powder.

I was looking for a powder that would help set my makeup yet add a little extra coverage to my face. I used this on top of the Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation and I found that it made me look way orange by lunch time! I normally use a shade lighter and the clerk insisted that it was...but it does' even remotely look anything like the other powders that I've used in the past. I do have to admit that it does work well with my skin (normal to oily combo skin - my t-zone is horrendous!). It doesn't make me oily and it doesn't dry me out. Nor does it gather/pool. I think that I"m a little harsh in my rating, but I think that oxidization to the point where I look like I had a bad spray tan on my face is a big no no. I think, sometime, in the future, I might try another shade, but for now, I'm going to stay away. I wear shade 7 in Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation and Shade 5.5 in the Luminous Silk Powder.

It is great powder to use on the final stage of your makeup. Works good on my dry skin and didn't clog my pores. light finished but cover all the imperfections and bring glowing and luminious effect all day long without shiny look but i think the powder sponge is too thin. Overall this powder is worthed to buy and you'll get what you pay for.

I use it with the Designing Lift Foundation. I have never been able to use powders. My skin is very dry and any powder I used emphasized that. I use the DLF in 2 and the Luminous Silk Powder in 4. The SA recommended the powder in the 4. She said I would be too pale with it in the 2. It is a perfect combination. My skin has a soft matte to satin finish. It doesn't look dry and the combination of the powder and foundation last all day. After about 8 hours, I will sometimes add some powder to touch it up. I use a fluffy powder brush to apply. I don't like the sponge that comes with it. For reference: my skin is sensitive, dry & dehydrated, with some fine lines. Highly recommend. I have already purchased a backup of both the foundation and the powder. Wouldn't be without it. I have also used the powder over other foundations and it has worked well; however, the Designer Lift Foundation is my current favourite.

I use it together with GA LSF. it really sets the foundation nicely, creating a smooth and silky finish. The powder is really fine and smooth, I like it a lot. Only issue i have is that it's really pricy for a powder cake of this size. I also do not like the black sponge that came with it. It doesn't pick up enough powder and doesn't spread on my face with ease. I use it with a La mer loose powder sponge and it works better that way. I am still looking for a right furry sponge to replace the original sponge, so I can bring this out for touching up. all in all, very please with it... I would definitely buy it again.

Awesome, just wish there were more of it in the compact because it applies generously. Looks fresh, professional and lasts. No irritations and doesn't clog pores. Use it over foundation rather than alone, unless touching up shine prone skin.

This is my favorite setting powder yet. To those who are complaining that this does not give enough coverage... this is a SETTING powder meant to be used in conjunction with the Luminous fdnt (or any other one)Beautiful, silky, does not settle into pores, lines, and simply provides me a lovely, matteish finish. It will not cake and is great to reapply with. It looks natural and although it is not amazingly long wearing (must reapply every 5-6 hours or so) It looks amazing during that time. It does provide me with a small amount of coverage so on my "good skin days" I will simply sweep this on for minimal coverage and a lovely polish to my face but this works great under any liquid foundation as well.I have extremely sensitive, clog prone skin and this does not irritate it at all. Win!

I have sensitive, combination type skin. This powder is pretty good, does not cake when melting off, stays on for about 4 hrs before touching up, and looks natural when it starts to come off. There are probably other cheaper powders out there that can do the same thing, but I have sensitive skin and would rather not take the chance. This feels abit drying on my cheeks (ok unless you have very dry skin on the cheeks area like me) but feels nice on my T-zone. I would buy this again despite the price, since it is non-allergenic and natural looking.
