I've been using this for about 2 years or so, and it's great for me! I use this with my Sonia Kashuk flat top brush, and I replaced the brush included with a round sponge for touch-ups. I have this in Creamy Natural, and it seems to blend in very nicely with my face. When I first apply it, it seems to be a little too white on my face; however, it somehow blends in my skin tone, giving me an overall even tone. The coverage is also good enough for me. I have little blemishes around my face and my cheeks are usually reddish, but this powder covers the right amount. It covers my blemishes well and leaves my cheeks slightly pink, giving me a natural blush. In addition, I believe that it has been improving my skin. I have much less blemishes than I used to have.
I LOVE this powder! It covers up every flaw with perfection. It's not too pricey either. But....the applicator brush is another story. I just buy a pouf and I'm good. :)
This is good, not great. It covers only minor blemishes and redness. I wish that it would give better coverage. I like that it doesn't give a chalky look, its a good finishing powder, it has a handy mirror in the bottom, it is a good match for my face, goes on my brush well, its talc-free, good for my face, and it isn't tested on animals!! :) It is a bit expensive. The brush suckss. The packaging is said to be bulky, but I find it is a fine size. I do find though that it doesn't go on my face too well.. So I am on the fence about this product.
I bought this product today in a kit that come with face power, mattie finishing vail, and blush at wel-mart for 20 dollars. I also tried it when I got home seems very nice gos on easy, some mess but I am use to powers I am hoping that this product stands up to other more expesive bare mineral makeup that I have bought in the past. I will touch base later.
This is really fine powder, it gets ALL over with the touch of any brush. it is very messy & the brush it comes with is useless. The packaging is bulky like others are saying.
I bought this because i wanted to try a powder ss just to dust on over my regular one. Well, that was pretty pointless because powder just isn't for me.
I bought translucent, and it did not give my face a weird tint after the day. It looked natural with a light dusting on my face.
I would not buy this again, and am going to return it once i have time because i have no need for this type of product.
If you like face powders & want some ss protection -> this is for you.
First, I gotta say I bought this today.
However, I tried it on as soon as I got home. YES, if you USE the little brush that it comes with, it will become a big mess. In fact, I think any BRUSH will do that. However, I used a puff that I've had from a previous powder (Maybelline Matte), and there was absolutely no mess whatsoever. It was perfect. The puff still picked up a good amount of product, and it applied just as great.
The coverage is quite great, considering it's mineral and everything.
I've yet to see how it controls my oily-face and if it breaks me out.
The only downside is the price. ($20.99 CAN) However, I don't need a lot, so I think it will last me a long time, hopefully.
So I got this along with the green color corrective mineral primer at Rite Aid a few weeks ago. I got the powder $5 off, plus 50% off of another PF brand product (the primer). So it was a pretty good deal, I think I must've spent a wopping $11 between both.
Anywyay, it suites my pale, freckly skin tone very well (got the translucent) and hasn't caused any breakouts as of yet. Using this has not amplified my pores or looked ashy on my skin. I put it on my face over my oily skin and have a nice sheen produced as it is matte. Pretty much, I've been looking for a powder with these qualities since I have a problem with oiliness in the T- zone, somewhat large pores and have a lot of redness in my skin. (Using the color correcting primer also helped the redness issue).
I like skin that makes my skin look its best and natural. This has helped a lot.
So today I give 5/5
Very powdery.... a gender swirl on the surface can make the table a mess. However, this is a very great powder that i like to use whenever I feel like my skin wants to break out. I used to use buff beige in the summer but now I am using transculant. it tends to get cakey and powdery on face be aware of that, but otherwise it is a great mineral powder that does not break me out, set makeup well and is under my budget for mineral powder.
The worst thing about this is the smell! It's horrible. Usually requires re-application around midday. The packaging is clunky and awkward, it feels like the puff should be on top of the powder instead of the other way round. The clasp of mine has loosened after around half a year's use, too.
I'm sad to say this caused my sensitive skin to have a serious breakout, and I won't be repurchasing. In the beginning, this powder gave my face a flawless, airbrushed look and had great coverage. It's a shame my skin reacted badly with it, because otherwise it would've been a perfect product: great coverage, flawless look, reasonably priced (search for PF coupons online and it can be incredibly cheap!), and very portable. If you have sensitive skin, be very wary of the claims that this is a "gentle" and "dermatologist approved"!
