I use this to set my foundation.
I love it!
Great powder!! I love to carry this around for touch ups during the day!! Wouldnt say HG but i will definitely repurchase if i ever need to!
This is a very nice powder - it goes on very smooth and doesn't have a tendancy to really empahsize any little dry areas on my face like a lot of powders sometimes do. It doesn't look cakey on me at all and should not be used to control oil because it doesn't. While this is a very nice powder, I wouldn't call it my HG but is still overall good.
this just didnt do much for my skin and i ended up with clogged pores after using this. will not be getting this when i run out of it and will switch to mineral MU.
This powder is finely milled and smooth. It's perfect for setting liquid foundation. I use it with a big fluffy brush, not the puff it came with. I have it in a few colors because it has just enough pigment to either lighten or darken foundation subtly for those times when I'm in between my summer foundation color and winter foundation color.
this is by far the best powder i have used. I would definitely buy it again.
What this product is said to do:
Micro-fine, sheer and silky. Pressed for portability. Goes on lightly. Won't shift your shade or leave its mark. Lets skin's natural vitality and freshness glow through. Comes with its own suede-finish sponge. Blurs lines. Makes skin look flawless.
I personally love this, I'm usually NC20 or NC25 and I was matched with NC25 for this product. From my experience, it does not oxidize very much, at first I was afraid that the powder seemed to light for me, but after about 30 minutes it adjusted to my perfect shade.
I have pretty good skin, however, my pores are quite large and I have an oily T-zone. This is perfect to even out my skin and really let my natural glow come through. Even without Fix+ Spray, it doesn't look powdery on my face, even after applying the third layer at the end of the day to freshen up prior to a night out. The finished feel on my face is not heavy or caked on, but just natural with a very light powdery feel.
The included sponge works well but I don't really use it that often as I prefer to either use my EcoTools, Sonia Kashuk, or MAC brushes with this product. Any fluffy or stiff powder brush, really. It goes on very evenly and there's no streaking.
It takes very little effort to put this on and I love the finish. Great for wearing on one of those days where you don't really want to put on too much. I'll definitely repurchase, after my current one and its back up runs out.
The SA talked me into buying this in NC45 which I think is a little dark for me. She insisted it was sheer with hardly any colour but I beg to differ. You can definitely see the colour difference.
No problems with the feel, look or packaging. Just need to get a better colour match. So that's why I'm not sure if I'll repurchase.
It was my own fault but I didn't take note of how long I'd had the powder + puff. I put powder all over my face and it gave me a huge, recurring stye! Now I've thrown it and all eye products > 6 mths old. Sigh... Now I know why people are always emphasizing the need to throw stuff out after a while. continued >>
I asked my MA what powder she would recommed to set my studio sculpt foundation with and she went straight for this but for me personally it is cakey and dries my skin out it also has no staying power my foundations off by lunch so from 7am to 1pm its all gone :(
Im going to try the loose powder Iv just ordered it :)
looove this product, i like going for a natural look so its perfect. just enough coverage, and it doesn't streak. I don't break out from it either, and i have semi-sensitive skin, i liked the sponge application since it gave me more color, but its not sanitary.. and i don't wanna break out so :(
& you def need to wear a primer over this, it makes it look sooo flawless. mac prep′ i suggest continued >>
