I really wanted to like this product. I used this to set my foundation and it gives such a wonderful satin look. I noticed that it is only after I use this powder where my skin gets irritated and red. I stopped using this for awhile and my skin is much better. I will only use this for special occasions when I want that satin finish. This may work well for others but just didn't work out with my skin.
I love this product!! I'm NC20/30 depending on the time of year, but I use it as a bronzer. I hate bronzers with shimmer in them and this has a satin finish, its perfect. It's not too heavy and leaves a really natural looking colour. I will definitely continue to buy this as a bronzer.
im nc37 and this color was MUCH TOO DARK. i tried it with my beauty blender alone and over studiofix fluid. alone, the color didnt look as bad and i really liked the texture, over my studiofix it looked blotchy, which was probably because i have the wrong color. so right as i though "oh i'll go back to my mac counter tomorrow, the girl there just made a mistake" i dropped the product (lid closed) and it barely tapped the countertop when it TOTALLY CRUMBLED. im thinking, even if i get my color properly matched tomorrow, im not sure if i want to spend $25 plus tax for a product im deathly afraid breaking. it;s really really delicate,, :( shame cause i loved the texture (and was looking for something to wear alone on more casual days) but quite frankly i feel more secure with my blot powder and SFF. so in summary, DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE VERY GENTLE WITH YOUR PRODUCTS. if you travel or tend to jostle your cases and bags about, this is not for you.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I used this everyday for some all over coverage. It's sheer, light, and natural looking. I saved up and bought this and I don't regret it one bit. It's best to use a kabuki brush with this. For reference I am a MAC NC42 or 45 so I got Medium Deep. If you're not sure what shade you are just ask someone at the store they're really nice and will help you.
I love this product! I was skeptical at first, because other mineral makeup (Bare Minerals) made me break out.... but I've had no such problems with MSF. I am NC37/40 - If I've been tanning, the Medium Dark starts to look too light ,so I use Medium Deep over it and it's perfect.
The coverage is so much better than I'd expect from a powder - I have very uneven skintone (lots of acne scarring) and this evens everything out wonderfully. I'm also able to build the coverage in areas I need it more.
This is a nice powder...it looks good gives good amount of coverage and feels very light...i have sensitive skin so it has given me an occassional break out...but i realized as long as i don't use it on a daily basis i'll be fine...but i like it..just wish i could use it everyday.
I use this powder everyday, the coverage is good enough so I don't need foundation. The color is perfect for summer, I usually use medium dark but medium deep gives you a nice golden tan so sometimes I don't even have to use a bronzer over my msf.
This has taken the place of Select Sheer as my HG powder. Select sheer is not very sheer at all really and gives good coverage but this is the only makeup that I've ever tried that truly feels like I'm not wearing anything at all and looks like I'm not wearing anything at all. It just looks like I have clear, smooth skin. I still use Studio Fix powder when I'm having skin issues but since my skin is pretty nice most of the time, most days it's just this and a little concealer. Really natural looking and it doesn't get shiny unless I'm doing some serious sweating. Great powder and I love the dome shape, more product for your money. I do hate that it doesn't have a mirror but that's not a big deal for me since I carry a small one anyway.
In love with this on my NC 40 skin. I actually use it on top of Studio Fix Fluid, but only when I go out. IMO leaves skin smooth and great for pictures. I don't use it more than 3 times a week and I think that's why I don't have breakout issues because I can definitely understand that complaint if you're using it daily. My only complaint would be the packaging, the dome shape is extremely fragile, so that means no traveling.
On my NW 30 skin, i use this as a bronzer to add an allover glow.
However, this had broken me out.
I have combination skin, oily t-zones in the spring-summer. Normal in fall-winter. i do get pimples, but not mass breakouts.
I really like this, but will not repurchase.
