For the price, this is definitely a great value. In fact, it's one of the best drugstore finishing powders out there, period.
I always buy this in the translucent shade. I'm sure the other shades are fine, but I like to apply translucent finishing powders over all of my foundations so the color isn't altered. This will leave a little bit of a white cast, but if you apply it lightly, it won't affect your makeup.
The texture is very fine milled. It does have a lot talc in it, which is unfortunate but it's to be expected. For the price (mine was $3) it's not a dealbreaker. If you apply this too liberally, it will cake and cling to your dry patches a little. You don't need to apply much.
It mattifies nicely! However, you will definitely need to blot or touch up within 4 to 5 hours, maybe sooner.
The packaging is kinda a bummer. The lid just snaps on and it breaks or falls off so easily. This can be a huge problem when you're traveling. The stuff inside is worth it, though!
If you're looking for a cheap mattifying powder that does the job well, look no further. It's definitely worth every penny and it's an old favorite of mine.

I have super oily skin. This product is pretty good for it's value. It doesn't keep my matte all day, but for at least a few hours and then some shine peeps through. It would be better it the lid was attached for better portability. If you dust it lightly over your skin, it doesn't look cakey at all.

I don't get the hype for this one. I'm an oily skinned gal and the matte effect does not last. The coverage isn't great either, but it still looks cakey (confusing!). It seems like any other cheap powder to me. Maybe it's just not amazing if you live in Arizona and also have oily skin, like me.(Also, the packaging truly is horrid...you basically can't take it with you unless you do some DIY de-potting. Feels like dollar store makeup plastic. I cracked mine and shattered the powder, Boo.)

This product really does its job! It is the finishing touch to my makeup and it really pulls the look together. Mattifies my face and sets the makeup. I would recommend getting the translucent powder if you are using it to set your makeup. But this product can only go so far - if you don't moisturize well or use a poor foundation, your makeup might slip and slide regardless.

This product is permanently in my makeup bag as I refuse to let myself run out of it. I can honestly say I swear by this powder when it comes to setting my makeup and keeping me matte. It is such a great product and that fact that it is so cheap (£3.99-$6.24) you can stock up on it without it coming to too much. It doesn't look cakey at all and you only need a little bit of product to take away any unwanted shine. I find personally that it keeps my makeup matte for a long time and keeps my makeup on for most of the day too. If I have done any activities (sport,school,work etc..) sometimes I need to touch up during the day but only on my T-Zone as that is where I get oily but otherwise one layer of powder in the morning is enough.I would really recommend this product as it is a lifesaver when it comes to my oily skin.

At this price point you get a very good amount of product. I don't really mind the no frills packaging but would have loved it if the packaging was a little more durable. The lid cracked with just 2 uses... So I knew this wouldn't be the powder that I can just slip in my bag and go. It would be mayhem in under an hour. I really tried to love this product. But I found it grainy, patchy, and too drying for my skin. Maybe if your skin was more oily, it would work. But for normal to dry , and specially sensitive, skin .... It's a pass.

First off, the packaging is terrible but I can easily look past that for a nice product. I use this to set my under eyes and to mattify my nose. I don't find it looks cakey, so long as I don't go too heavy handed. This has been my mum's powder for years, so it's also a little nostalgic for me. I love this stuff! I have it in translucent and I would like to try some of the coloured powders later on.

I used to use this powder very frequently (in the color translucent) but I am no longer a fan of it. I think it looks quite cakey, and frankly the scent of it turns me off to it completely. I now use Maybellline Fit Me Matte + Poreless, which works a lot better and comes with a mirror!

I usually have to touch up my make up when I'm out for the whole day but this has literally saved me the time for touching up throughout the whole day. I do get oily at the T-zone at times but as long as I add this powder to my make up routine, I don't have to touch up the whole day and it stayed on throughout the whole day. But packaging can be improve, I dropped my powder and the plastic case cracked and it won't help to cover the powder anymore. But still, it definitely worth the money and I would repurchase once I use finish my current one!

I love this powder for so many reasons. It's cheaper than dirt (no really, have you bought potting soil recently?) and the Transparent shade is light enough for me, Casper the Friendly NW10. It has a little coverage, so do try to find a similar match to your skin tone. The packaging sucks, which has been stated again and again, but the pan is the size of old vintage compacts (57 mm), so if you feel like getting crafty, you can use heat to depot this and put it into s beautiful compact to take with you. I placed mine in an Art Deco style Stratton compact and carry it in my purse. Now it's beautiful and functional!
