Finally finished a container of this powder. It took me forever to use it up as the container is so big as others have mentioned. I was pretty impressed at how long a container lasted, despite being on hiatus from it for a short time just to try something different.My only issue I really have, and its not just with this brand, is I am not a fan of the shaker style container liner as I find I usually have to yank it out to get a decent amount as opposed to sprinkling it in lid, brush, etc. I like it for travelling, siphoning and containment, but call me old fashioned I like to dip my brush in the powder and get a decent amount then dab the brush in lid or liner to get rid of the excess.Translucent is decent for setting makeup, but did find certain blushers or bronzers sat on the surface a little more streaky than I would have liked and required extra blending if you applied after the powder. Pretty much scent free if certain smells annoy you in loose powder and hypo allergenic. All in all a good product and any company that doesn't test on animals scores well on my list,

Does everything a powder should do. Sets makeup, absorbs oil, blends well, gives your skin that matte, "finished" look, keeps shine at bay. Even helps to conceal zits if applies with the fingertip (overtop a concealer). Unscented and non-irritating. Doesn't dry me out. Dirt cheap for the HUGEST JAR of powder EVER. No annoying chunky glitter or shimmers. Marcelle is cruelty-free, and originates from my home country of Canada. :)No complaints, and no reason to stray from this powder. I've recommended and would repurchase.

I love the way this looks on my skin. I love how it makes me look polished but not too "makeuppy". I love the cheap price for the huge whopping size. But it makes my skin feel a little bit dry. And after a week of using it every day...it makes my skin feel REALLY dry. So torn....

after basically falling in love with their BB Cream, I read reviews about their powder because I desperately needed a new one after the covergirl one i bought (which did not satisfy me at all). This product is just absolutely amazing. I can pack this powder in my face and not look cake at all. it sets my make up amazingly and is so fine. bought it for $10 CAN which is an amazing price for this. Def repurchase once I'm out which might take awhile considering how much product you get.

Just bought this, tried it out to touch up the makeup I was already wearing and it actually made it look even better! Will update when I try setting foundation with it! Hoping it won't dry me out!

Best powder ever! Keeps me matte yet natural looking. It's about $15can for a huge jar of it. I don't even need to touch up throughout the day. Only complaint is I find it hard to get much product out at a time. You have to really shake it.

Skin: Oily, Dark, Not Sure
This product was my favourite fluke of the year. I bought it on a whim at Loblaws because it was on sale (seven dollars!) and I was running out of my MAC studio fix compact powder and I was no where near the mall. Usually my MAC powder gets me oily 3 hours into wearing it. I dabbed a little bit of the Marcelle Translucent powder in the morning on my nose because it was getting shiny. By the time I got home (around 4:30) my nose was still shine free! This NEVER happens and I have struggled with oily skin all my life. The powder is lightweight, clear once you apply it and actually keeps you shine free. The only cons would be the size of the container and the fact that it gets everywhere (but that's all translucent powders). Buy it!

Simply EXCEPTIONAL - in its own...quiet way.Powder is important in my routine, especially loose powder. I have many of them. While I like to experiment with new exciting things, this powder is always there. I am male but can never go on a trip without my sunscreen, the ELF powder brush, and Marcelle Face Powder. I can live without foundation, blushes, and bronzers, but I simply cannot leave the house with an SPF oily face.Most powders are either too coarse, too shiny (why do they have to put mica in there?), or so dry that I feel like I'm dragging my sunscreen as I slide the brush around my face. Marcelle is so fine, the brush glides smoothly, and the finish is simply perfect! no need for a setting spray. I'm not sure whether it is the fine talc or the small amount of mineral oil it contains but it is pure genius!Is the packaging too big? Yes!! There's 70g or product in there, which makes it cheaper than Ben Nye Luxury Powders by size. You can get it for 10.97 CAD at Walmart. Considering the size it's as cheap as the NYC Loose Powder. The container might be a bit too bulky for travel but I don't care. I just put a sticker to block the sifter and toss it in my bag. I don't even bother to transfer. The two available shades, Translucent and Translucent Medium differ mainly not in darkness but in color. Translucent Medium is simply a bit red, not dark.Trying to be impartial, I guess its greatest PROS can turn out to be its CONS as well.- Because it is so sheer, it doesn't offer any coverage. It will slightly blur imperfections but that's about it. Which is good because it doesn't turn my facial hair beige when applied liberally. :)- Because it is so creamy, there are other talc / cornstarch / rice powders in the market that control oil slightly better. But for normal to slightly oily, slightly dry skin people this is great.- Because it is so smooth, I find that blush and bronzer don't bind on it as well. I'd say it's more suited as a finishing powder. But I personally prefer a yellow powder for that.Bottom line: If you need powder to remove shine from sunscreen all over your face and neck this powder is great. If your skin is not too oily it makes a good finishing powder as well. A true beauty bargain, 100% Canadian.:)

this is awesome. right after i apply it i find my makeup to last longer and set reallly well. i find that it can be a little powdery if i apply too much but once ive worn it for a while, it looks fine!
this does flashback IF you caked it on. if you dusted it over your face to set foundations, it doesnt flashback.
the packaging is simple and it gives just enough powder with a couple of taps.
i loove this powder and i havnt touched my other ones since i purchased this!
