I have repurchased the powder more times than I can remember. I would use it to set my foundation and my full face of makeup. The color selection is good but I would be careful setting your concealer underneath your eye it can look cakey. Other than that the powder does keep the oil at bay. The price is good around $10.00 but it is occasionally on sale in the drugstores. The packaging I love it comes with a powder puff and a mirror . I actually save the containers because they make cute compacts to get a quick look at your makeup . The only reason why I am not using it now is because I am now using Coty powder in translucent and it works well and is less expensive and has a great amount of product. I do recommend the Revlon Colorstay if you need a good setting powder and they do have it in translucent which is great to try .

As I already have acre-prone skin, this product made my skin break out even more. It claims to be matte and not shiny for oily skin. My skin looked fine for the first one hour but started feeling oily within the first 3 hours of use. I don't like it at all.

I bought this mostly to set my liquid foundation. I know you shouldn't do it but it's what works for me; if you use a brush and don't go overboard it's fine. I've got the shade Light and it looks almost pastel yellow in the packaging but applies way darker. When setting makeup it works fine as you don't use that much, but once I tried actually using this as foundation, applied with the sponge, blended with a brush and it looked orange. Absolutely orange. Not impressed. It also feels really drying, almost painfully drying, when used on its own. It clings to the fluff on your face and doesn't leave a good look. I'd say it feels smooth and creamy when you swatch it or take it on with a brush/sponge but it sure does feel&look chalky and dry on the skin. It gets better after spritzing with Mac Fix+, both the feeling and the look, but the colour is still off. The packaging is bulky and sometimes the wrong compartment comes open; I feel like you could break the product by opening the sponge compartment and then accidentally slamming the powder one on top. However, I don't have much of a problem with it as I don't carry it around.Overall, it's only okay to set your makeup and use in small quantities. As a foundation it's a bad product. When I run out I'm not repurchasing; I think I'll buy a legit transparent or semi transparent setting powder and a loose powder if I want to use powder foundation.

This would be AMAZING for people with Oily-Very Oily skin (I got shade light-medium). I have Combination, so it made my dry patches look BAD, but it does keep you matte for 4-5 hours and has medium-high coverage. I wouldn't recommend for touch ups, because it can very easily look cakey and feel heavy.

Hello all...light/medium is my color and I apply with a powder puff. A big fat one. I pat it on and then gently spread it out and I love it. Put it on top of my BB cream, Evens out skin color, sets make up, keeps blush in place. Does not seem to settle into lines or pores. A good fit for me. Does not cake or discolor, and does indeed last a good long time. Cheers!

My thoughts about this product is that it's average at best. In Australia this powder costs a whopping $34.95 and it just isn't worth the money. The coverage is not that great and on a warm day it doesn't last very well at all and I have dry skin! I'm pretty disappointed with this product and I will not repurchase.

Got this to try a change of pace from my usual L'Oreal True Match. Doesn't do any better of a job keeping shine at bay and has a much more dry and powdery finish than True Match. Got it for super cheap on sale at Ulta but the actual retail price is pretty high for such an average product. After two week's worth of wear I'm done with this and just bought a new True Match powder. I'd rather carry around shine blotting sheets in my pocket and use True Match, with its finely milled texture and smoother finish.

This pressed powder is great for me as everyday, work-appropriate makeup. I bought it as a replacement for my beloved Physicians Formula organic wear (discontinued, waaah), and it's a great product. I apply it to my normal/oily T-zone face after sunscreen and concealer go on, and I use the Sephora mineral powder brush (which is awesome, forget that crappy little pad in the package): I use circular buffing motions on my cheeks and pressing motions on my T-zone. It doesn't cause any breakouts or make my face itch, which some powders can. I use Light, and although it's just a tad too light for my NW25 skin, it works fine: the next darker color looks weirdly grayish in the packaging so I'm not getting that. This powder doesn't provide a lot of coverage (which is fine with me; if I were going for coverage I'd use a liquid foundation), and the staying power is enough to get me through an 8-hour workday and then some. I do use the UD setting spray, which I highly recommend to tone down the powdery look, and it also seems to help keep it on my skin. I think the plastic packaging feels cheap and bulky, but I can live with it. There is more powder in the compact than you think; it lasted me at least 5-6 months with 5x/week use. I've repurchased this powder twice already and will continue to do so.

I am an NC42, and I chose medium-deep which was the darkest color on the display. So far I'm impressed. The color match is just about perfect, and it provides the matte finish I require. Doesn't have a scent, and it's reasonably priced. I got this at CVS for $2 after the Revlon coupon and the ECB reward.
