This product for me is nothing to write home about. I've been using it solidly for probably over a month now. It makes me so incredibly oily and the powder just sits on the skin. I don't know how to explain it. It just feels like a ton of product on my skin and it feels gross. Also I've been getting small bumps lately and I think this stuff is the culprit. I'm going back to my Stay Matte and won't be repurchasing this again.

Let's start off with what you see first: The packaging. Even by Wet 'n' Wild's standards, this packaging is ABYSMAL. No mirror with a pressed powder? For real? I can understand that with a loose powder, as that tends to get used more as a setting powder at home, but it's generally assumed that you keep a pressed powder in your handbag for touch-ups. I don't appreciate having to carry a separate little mirror. Then on top of the no-mirror disappointment, the entire compact is made up of the flimsiest, crappiest plastic you could imagine. You also get a tiny, rectangular latex sponge for... Well, I'm not quite sure. You sure as hell can't use it for powder application so perhaps it is for decoration. I really wouldn't mind having to pay just that little bit more for a mirror and some more product instead of that stupid sponge thing that takes up so much space. That's where my whining ends though, because the product inside the packaging is absolutely brilliant and easily beats all of the high-end products I've tried. Very finely-milled, so much so that it is almost creamy in texture, with a light but still noticeable level of coverage. Shine control and wear time are not that great, but then again I have disgusting oil slick skin so maybe you'll have better luck in this area. I don't mind having to touch up fairly frequently though - At this point it's just a fact of life. I can go about 3-4 hours with most powders before having to do some oil control, whereas with this it's 3 hours max. The difference is that those other powders all made my skin look cakey and overly made up, whereas this one doesn't. It makes my skin look flawless. When applied using a powder puff or sponge it can look a bit overdone, but using a densely-packed kabuki brush results in such a beautiful, natural looking finish. I'm not sure if there are micro-shimmer pigments or something in there, but it really revives my skin and gives a glow injection, even when I'm ridiculously tired. Totally matte look to the skin, but never corpsey.

I had to write a review for this product because it's exceptional... in that I hit pan quicker than I have for any product I've ever owned. I hit pan in one week (nickel sized spot of pan) using it with my Eco Tools powder brush! I'm a proponent of the less is more, your-skin-but-better look so I'm never heavy handed when applying any face makeup. The powder itself is probably the least finely milled I've owned- I've used a Chanel translucent powder compact, MAC Skinfinish Mineralized in Light and Rimmel Stay Matte in translucent. Then again, it gives much more coverage than a translucent powder. I do like the product enough to buy it again if I ever need makeup in a pinch-- it's available everywhere (in the lighter shades, anyway) dirt cheap, decent coverage, doesn't oxidize, doesn't give me flat-looking cake-face, doesn't break me out, and the color (Light-Medium) works for my fair asian complexion. My favorite way to use this is over my Cerave AM on days I feel like wearing minimal face makeup-- it dampens the waxy look many sunscreens can impart and it makes my skin look smooth and even. I wouldn't say that it controls oil particularly well but I just blot during the middle of the day and enough stays behind that my skin-tone looks more even than if I were barefaced. I will finish this but I'm sure there are better powders out there.

i'm very picky about powder. i need it to control oil but i hate anything that feels overly dry or chalky. would never have thought this $3 powder would be so good. silky soft, light coverage, nice shade range (i use fair & i'm ~nc10), beautiful satin finish, doesn't oxidize on me, good oil control. the only drawback is the cheap packaging; no mirror, hard to open & the sponge it comes with is useless for powder. so, not great as a purse powder but perfect to set my makeup before i leave the house.

Packaging is awful but that comes with Wet N Wild territory. Great price. It did not keep my combo skin oil free, really didn't provide great coverage. I mainly used this for daily use, gym, etc. to use it up. Won't repurchase.

I am really loving this powder. I use this with the coverall cream foundation, and it sets my foundation really well. It gives me a satin finish, and I don't have to reapply it, it stays on and keeps my face looking great all day. I usually buy the rimmel stay matte powder which I also love. But it gives me more of a powdery flat look. It does keep me less oily than the coverall though. All in all I think I like this coverall better, because of the finish and the staying power.

I LOVE Wet 'n' Wild products. LOVE.This pressed powder is no exception. What I love about it the most is that it comes in different shades to suit different complexions. I have warm gold/yellow undertones in my skin and most pressed powders are far too pink for me, or they claim to be translucent but still leave my skin looking ashy and too white.Wet N Wild carries their coverall pressed powder in shades from Fair right down to Tan. I use Medium-Tan. It works well for my skin and matches my liquid foundation, Loreal True Match in W7, Caramel Beige. It is very soft and finely milled, and just a swipe of my angled brush over the pan picks up quite a bit of color. I usually tap it on the side of the container to get rid of the excess and then just use what's left on the brush.I mainly use this powder for the areas of my nose and upper lip that tend to get 'dewy' after I put on foundation. That is really my only use for it. But I love that the color is perfect for my skin and that it's very inexpensive.Like most other products for ethnic women, this is impossible to get in my town. I have found that you have to be in a large city or on the outskirts of one to be able to find anything past the color 'Medium'. I have searched for Medium-Tan in EVERY SINGLE ONE of my local drugstores that carries this brand and not one of them carries this powder in the shade beyond Medium. For this reason, when I go to visit my boyfriend in the city I usually buy two packages (if I can find any-this is always sold out) or I just buy two packages online and pay a ridiculous amount for shipping. It's really kind of infuriating. But I digress.As is typical for Wet n Wild, the packaging is awful. I swear I chip a nail every time I have to open the package. If you drop the package, count on the powder breaking and possibly the cap shattering too. However, I will sacrifice bad packaging for an inexpensive powder that works extremely well.You really cannot beat $4.00 for pressed poweder. CVS, Walgreens and Rite-Aid also frequently have BOGO sales where you can buy a product and get the second half off or free, so that's also and advantage.

I think it's a really nice powder and the price is amazing. :) I have the color light-medium, I think. It has a nice yellow undertone, I find that a lot of drugstore powders are too pink. I'm really surprised with wet n wild's quality nowadays.

I have already purchased this powder twice. I am about NC30-35 in MAC and the shade "Medium" suits me perfectly. I have acne prone skin with a lot of redness on my cheeks and around the nose. In summers, it does a good job of lightly covering the redness so it is "not in your face" but remember that this is not a powder foundation. I use Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and it keeps it in place for about 6 hours after which I feel that my foundation begins to crease around my mouth.For about $4 this is an absolute steal!

great priceCheap looking packaging...sad, since it's so good. Light to medium coverage. The color of the powder is very true to it self, meaning that if you buy a color darker by mistake, it will be noticeable it's not workable, the color you see on the compact is what you get. It sets makeup perfectly and it helps with modorate oiliness.It doesn't have a sent.It's a bit messy when dabbing the brush in the powder, but nothing too bad to complain about. 8/10 <3
