Overall, I really like this product. I have oily, acne-prone skin. It controls oil decently, doesn't look cakey, and the color Toffee matches my tan skin pretty well. I also have not broken out because of this product. I don't need heavy coverage, so I can't speak toward this point, but I do find the light to medium coverage leaves my skin with a smooth, even, matte finish. However, I do notice that this powder tends to oxidize in the sun (it seems to only affect me when I'm outside for an extended period of time), leaving me with a blotchy, orange hue. It doesn't happen all the time, so I will continue to use this product until I find another natural powder foundation that doesn't react this way. Even though I have oily skin, I prefer to use 100% Pure's liquid foundation because it doesn't seem to oxidize.
I love this powder on my face after I wear the healthy foundation or the primer from this same line. It depends on if I want heavy makeup. The light powder is good to hold your makeup on and gives a matte finish to your face. Very good for going out and going to work. I use Evian toner misting spray after to make my face look less dry (all foundation powders are usually not recommended for dry skin, but it is necessary to keep the makeup on and cover the redness on my skin in different areas). I have used Benefit Hello Flawless! powder before I started using this two years ago and this one blends much better with foundation and concealer, but it is lighter coverage.
I loved the color of this product and it does a decent job at controlling oil. However this gave me an allergic reaction. I used this on my t zone and broke out in little red bumps. =/ Will not repurchase.
I am not sure about this powder. It covers a bit, but I definitely would not use it as foundation.. unless my skin was perfect, and in that case, why in the world would I want to cover it? Anyway, this powder is pretty good at controlling oil throughout the day, and the color matches my skin pretty well (I have the White Peach). But... I recently noticed my skin reacts to products with avocado oil in them, and this powder has it. My skin has been acting up since I've been wearing this, but it could also be stress. Anyway, it is a bit expensive, so I am not sure if I will ever buy it again.
-Absorb oil pretty well on my T-Zone area, so it definitely helps in reducing the shine on my face when I check in the mirror in the middle of the day
-Fits my skin tone really well, and a little amount of product goes a long way
-Does not make my skin break out with some coverage power
-OK stay-on power
I am generally pretty happy with this product, however, I have not tried many foundation powder before. The only other ones that I have tried are mineral foundation powder from Bare Escentuals, which I actually do not like too much, and mineral foundation powder from Maybelline, which makes my skin breaks out.
I like it because it matches my skin tone really well. It does not bother me that it has light coverage because I do not have really bad break out skin, so as long as it evens out my skin tone without me looking like ghostly white or unnatural, I am happy with it.
This is described as a super lightweight face powder to give you a flawless & poreless complexion. They say it can be used alone or over the 100% pure tinted moisturizer. I have pretty clear skin apart from the occasional blemish, and this powder alone doesn't really do much for me. It's quite sheer. I like to used it over the TM and it gives a lot better coverage that way. Doesn't look cakey, heavy or thick. Camoflages any redness on my face nicely.
The ingredients are full of anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants and skin purifying eucalyptus, soothing calendula, chamomile and rose, oil and absorbing rice powder. It doesn't contain talc, chemical preservatives, fragrances etc...and I have had no problem with it irritating or breaking out my sensitive skin.
I'm an NC42 w/ golden undertones and chose the shade TOFFEE. It suits me fine at first, but oxidises throughout the day and I'm left looking nasty and orange!
Overall this is a nice powder but I wouldn't repurchase as I can't use this product by itself, only ontop of another base, and it oxidises into a radioactive orange colour. continued >>
