This product works for setting liquid foundation, I would not say that this powder is pigmented enough to use on its own if you don't have perfect skin. The packaging is very hard to close and if I carry it in my bag powder tends to fall all over the bag if I do not pay close attention to closing the compact. I got the powder in the lightest colour, but not translucent because the translucent powder seemed very ashy when I swatched it in the store. The powder itself is also very soft. However, since it is so affordable I would repurchase this product.
I have this in 701A Translucent. It can give an ashy tint that goes away after 20 minutes or so on my NC35 skin, but the dealbreaker is that it starts looking cakey throughout the day. I do have oily skin, but there are other drugstore powders that don't leave a cast or cake (e.g. Maybelline Dream Matte). I would recommend this range of powders as excellent for the price if you have dry to normal light skin.
Helps keep me matte and doesn't have a weird smell. Packaging is cheap but its what's inside that counts (: will repurchase especially since it only cost me 2$ at Walmart. I love finding gems in drugstore brands!!!!
this product i bought by accident didnt mean to at all was getting the one in color(silly me i was in a hurry) and the one i got was translucent didnt want to go back to the store so i gave it a shot overall i like it i dont love it because of the packaging its hard to open and hard to close. but the product use is actually pretty good!!! concealar and this powder and im on the go!
i wanted to like this because of the great reviews and great price, but it wasn't helpful at all to my oily acne-prone skin. I applied it lightly after my liquid foundation with a kabuki brush and it looked okay, weird coloring tho (it made my foundation lighter) and although it didn't look caked on -it felt like it was.
after about twenty to thirty minutes my foundation went back to its normal color but my skin was an oil slick and i broke out.
I'll stick to silica to tame my oily skin.
I used to use this as a setting powder. It did do the job but as the years have gone on, I'm now combination & this does not stop oil.
I was really hoping for something with more coverage, but this is very sheer. Also, i found that if i applied it over a tinted or regular moisturizer, it made the powder turn orange, and if i applied it over foundation it looks REALLY cakey. It did help control a bit of shine, but if i had been sweating alot, and tried applying this, it would turn orange like it did over moisturizer. Its fine if you want something really sheer and just want to control a small amount of shine, but other then that, its completly useless.
This is my first pressed powder because I hadn't needed to use any face products before, but since my face has been breaking out as a get older, I thought it might be time to purchase a powder.
I got it at Target for 2.79, or something like that. It was very inexpensive.
Personally, I like it, but I don't have any other powders to compare it to. It does make me look a bit orange though. I have it in Naturally Beige.
It might be making me break out a little on my forehead; I can't really tell! hahaha
It does matte my face and leaves a very smooth finish, though.
The packaging is a little flimsy...
I don't think I would repurchase because I would like try other
product, but I do like this one!
Chalky, doesn't last long, dirt cheap. Nothing else worth mentioning.
Okay, so I developed acne scars because of this powder and it clogged my pores. I'll never use this again.
