This came in a kit I bought for theatre, and it does its job. It keeps my makeup from moving or looking shiny, and between the thin=ck, cakey foundation and this chalky formula it keeps my face from sweating on stage. The packaging however looks slightly improfessional, like it was a travel container.

This is the powder that comes with all the personal kits (except for the dark ones). It did alter the shade of my foundation and make me look like I was an extra from the set of twilight. It did do a great job of setting my makeup and keeping it shine free and didn't dry out my skin. However the fact that it lightened my foundation and made me look overly powdery and white just make me not like it at all. (I am a P-45.)

Very good price considering how much you get in a bottle! The only downside is the packaging, it can get messy. I love how it sets my foundation and does not make my face look oily during mid day!

I also love my Motives Dual Powder!

I've been using this to set my foundation and the Ben Nye Visage powders for years. The main ingredient in both are talc however, so if you steer clear of talc, don't buy this. Other than that, it provides a literal flawless finish when buffed out with a kabuki brush. Fair is almost translucent with the faintest hint of cool in it but not enough to even notice. I use this, the Visage powder in Cameo, and Banana. Ben Nye powders are amazing. Not to mention, the price is unbeatable. You can get 3.5 oz for under 10 bucks.

I love this stuff. I had to buy this for a drama production and now I use it for regular wear. It's very light (both color and texture) and goes on really effortlessly. My only complaint (and it shouldn't be, really) is that they fill up the jar too much so it's very easy to fill. I shouldn't be complaining about more product, but it gets a bit messy. Other, my HG powder.
