I quite like this product, but somehow I don't. The packaging is fine, the price is fine, but the product itself doesn't really work for me. It makes me look cakey, and it doesn't keep me matte all day, which is a must for me. I will use this one up, but my skin is simply too shiny for this!
My shade: 001 Transparent
Great for very pale people.
Good amount of product for low price.
Applies amazingly with a fluffy brush.
Doesn't set in fine lines.
Cons: Sometimes difficult to get all the product from the tub.
I really love this powder! You can't tell when I'm wearing it. When I had oily skin, it took off ALL my shine, making my skin look flawless. It doesn't settle into fine lines, and it really does leave the skin looking silky. However, since I've been using Clinique's 3-step system, my skin is no longer oily, so I don't need this powder as much.
I may be the only one, but I don't really like this product. I have used it on and off for about three months now, and I everytime I use it, I regret it. I think I keep going back to it because I sooo want this product to work. The problem is that it sits funny on my skin. I don't know how to explain it, but my skin looks "grainy" and uneven. It kind of ruins the work of my foundation. Also, it doesn't make my foundation last any longer on my skin.
So I am still on the search for a finishing powder that sets the foundation but still lets the foundation "shine through". If anybody can recommend a powder, please let me know :)
Oh I almost forgot - and for what it's worth - I really like the packaging of this powder!
This is a really good Loose face powder, I've already bought a backup of this! This controls your oil and leaves a semi matte/dewy finish. It is absolutely amazing. I used the ELFs HD Powder from the Studio line and the Rimmel Londons one is way better. I find that the Elf one doesn't really do that of a good job of controlling my oily T-zone. My HG face powder and wont use anything else =) LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Great product! I wasn't expecting much but this product delivered! The powder is quite finely milled, transparent, non-glittery & looks very natural. Non-drying, didn't break me out or make me look greasy. Keeps my foundation on longer, doesn't crease or settle into fine lines. Feels sooo smooth, not chalky at all. Like other reviewers, I don't use the puff that came with it, it's pretty useless. I use a large powder brush. Will definitely re-purchase. continued >>
I love this product, it sets my liquid foundation perfectly, and masks out any streaks. It's a little costly, but worth it for the work it does. My skin looks matte, but glowy afterwards, so it doesn't dull out the skin
Also, I have spot prone skin, and I find this doesn't clog up the pores
I love this product, i use it everyday to set my liquid foundation and it is a dream, it sets my foundation and makes it last almost all day and gives a matte and silky texture to the skin. I have oily acne prone skin and ive tried setting my foundation with macs blot powder and other powder foundations, however they tend to just slide off and do nothing to help my foundation last longer. Although blotting with oil absorbing papers is necessary on my tzone area, considering my oily skin, elsewhere the foundation is full proof. definetely recommend.
Loving this powder - I bought it a couple of days ago on special for $AU16.83. To think I was on the brink of shelling out $50 for a Shiseido loose powder. This does an amazing job of setting concealer under the eyes, even with my current crease-prone concealer. The powder looks coloured in the jar but goes on translucent (though I have fair skin - might be a bit light for darker skins).
I don't use the stiff little "puff" that came with it; I use my Ecotools retractable kabuki instead.
Will definitely buy again.
I love this powder!
Mattifies my oily patches, gives my skin a very natural look, sets my makeup and feels awesome on my face.
The reason why I can only award four stars is that I do have to touch up after a few hours - but then, the powder that I don't need to touch up probably doesn't exist yet.
Also very affordable, and it lasts forever.
Don't understand people talking about sparkles. Just be careful to use it quite sparingly, otherwise it can look a bit white-ish.
