Yep, the cakeage factor will stop me from buying this again! I've tried maybe half a dozen powders in the past few months, and this one was the only one I actually threw into the garbage before I was even 1/4 finished it. I have normal skin, but this powder actually made it look worse than it is. The compact is cute, but this is an all-around BAD powder.
my mom has used this for years. (she's not really a makeup fan) it's working pretty well, but i have to tell that Covergirl tests on animals!!! they kill animals after they test products on them. bunnies, mice.. this makes me not buy Cover Girl products.
I usually buy the CG clean powder, but the Smoothers powder was buy one get one free so I got this instead. I am really impressed. MTVsux is right about the moisturizing powder looking better than the drying powder. I have combo skin too, with occasional dry patches from acne treatments, and the drying powders look terrible on dry skin-- all scaly and patchy. The Smoothers powder looks much more natural. The only thing I don't like is the scent-- it smells like some kind of bubble bath and is a major turnoff. If it were unscented, I'd love it. Nice, cheap, useful stuff. I just keep this in my backpack for touchups during the day.
I thought that this was a very good powder. I have very light skin, and it covered my red cheeks well, making my face a more uniform color. I would definitely purchase this powder again!
This is a moisturizing powder in a translucent blue case. The powder comes in translucent colors that work well w/ many skin tones. I have combo skin but LOVE this powder because somehow the fact that it's moisturizing makes it not accentuate my pores as much. i find w/ drying powders they look much worse. It has a distinct smell but it's not overpowering.
I like this stuff and am on my second one, no breakouts, works well, darn cheap.
