this is okay. i'm not sure why it's listed as a powder foundation, i feel like i have to put a good amount on to get medium coverage..i do like the finish of it though. it doesn't look over powdery/cakey.staying power is not that long though.

I use Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder with some under eye concealer as my everyday foundation routine. I don t wear heavy foundation, or even liquid foundation often because that make me breakout. I must have a sensitive skin.For a mineral powder, this product has quite a heavy coverage (perfect to even out skin tone and cover minimal spots).The staying power is not optimal, it fade during the day and I ve to reapply it at the end of the afternoon if I want to be made up for the evening.The texture is not as thin and mild as a loose powder so I don t use it to set my concealer (too heavy).Color range : I use 40 tan and I love to golden color. It s really natural on my skin, not as yellow/orange as the NC range in Mac or pink/red as the NW range. The colors are more natural and there is a little bit of shimmer in it (nothing strong, still natural).For reference, I m a nc 43,5 in Mac Studio fluid or 6 in Matchmaster & Face & Body or even Syracuse in Nars Sheer Glow (the most perfect shade for me). Ten 40 is maybe a tad bit darker than those shade, so it warms up the face a little bit. I ve also bought 35 Bronze for the winter but I ve not yet used it.Compared to MSF, I really like the finish of it for the first hours, but at the end of the end, I ll be oily on my T-zone. Also, the coverage is a bit sheerer than the Sephora. I used the it in Med Deep, which is a bit too pink for me. I think the Med Dark could me more neutral and natural on me. Also, this one is more expansive the Sephora (17 Euro vs 28 Euro in Europe). So my choice is made, Sephora is a perfect dupe of MSF, cheaper, color range is more natural and the staying power is better.

I like this powder as a setting powder much more than a standalone foundation. I owned one for months and just felt it was too sheer for any real coverage. However recently I used it as a setting powder instead and it works beautifully. The powder is really fine and slightly reflective so it works great esp under the eye. Would have wished it had a metal pan though, because now i want to put it in my makeup kit but without the pan i cant put it in a z palette and have to carry each individual shade.

Part of my new everyday routine! I decided to get this instead of the MAC MSF because I read that the bismuth in it breaks some people out.I use it to set my undereye concealer and as a foundation. I've yet to try it as a setting powder over top foundation because it works amazingly alone. Covers my redness completely; provides a sheer-medium coverage. (I use an ecotools kabuki brush.) Looks flawless, very natural (satin?) finish, which is what it claims. The powder itself is very soft and blends very easily. Try just applying on half your face first and see the difference haha!I wear a MUFE #117 (NC15/20) and I bought #15 nude.

This is my go-to powder! I used to use the MAC mineral powder but switched to this one and haven't turned back since. The powder feels light and gives good coverage - whether I just want a natural look or if I'm needing to cover-up some blemished, this powder does the trick. The price is affordable too, especially compared to the other powders at Sephora. The only "complaint" I really have is the fact that it doesn't come with a mirror... But I go through a few of these a year so maybe it would be a bit of a waste anyways.

I saw this a little while ago while browsing in Sephora and decided to give it a try, as I was running out of my other powder (I've used Sephora's Mattifying Powder Foundation FOR YEARS). I have to say that I love this powder. It feels lighter, and looks smoother on my skin than the mattifying powder foundation. I would sometimes feel like the mattifying powder made my skin look "dusty". I don't have that issue with this powder. It seems to give my skin a luminous look, blurs imperfections, and sets my foundation perfectly. I use it with Sephora's Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation. I would definitely repurchase. This powder retails for $22.

This powder is very soft and fine, but I do have to say I feel like it just sits on my skin. It looks great w/ a finishing spray though. The coverage it adds even after I've applied foundation is nice. Definitely one of my favorite powders thus far! Another thing is: it transfers onto clothing very easily, but other than that I like it.

I feel like this powder just sits on my skin? Its very powdery and transfers like crazy! If my face touches anything you bet this powder is on it. Although, it does have very good coverage.

I like this is a finishing powder to top liquid foundation and concealer and to touch up throughout the day. It's the perfect balance of mattifying/setting without being too heavy or cakey. I have tried this on its own as a foundation and wasn't impressed, I didn't think it provided hardly any coverage. I do prefer this to the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural powder, I found that that emphasized my pores and uneven texture more than this. I use the shade 15 and am NC 20/25.

I really like this foundation. I have been using it for a couple months now and I do enjoy using it. Its very soft and finely milled and it covers any redness (id say light to medium coverage) and really melds into my skin. I have sensitive/acne prone skin and I can say now that this isnt causing me to break out at all which is awesome. The only thing I dislike about it is the packaging. I wish there was a mirror in it so this would be more travel friendly to take on-the-go.I said I would buy this again because it really is great but to be honest I might not buy it again if I can find something similar that is more travel friendly!I am an nc10 and I wear their lightest shade 05 porcelain in this and it works perfectly.Pros-light/med coverage-doesnt cause acne-covers light imperfections and redness-no fragrance-soft powder-no parabenscons-no mirror-compact isnt travel friendly
