I bought this in the plastic container in Naturally Neutral and it is perfeccccct! I'm really pale with freckles, I usually wear translucent pressed powder but this was calling to me for some reason. The translucent version of this looked too white and shimmery. Neutral is the perfect shade for me. It doesn't settle into pores, break me out, or look like I'm wearing anything. It's so soft and smooth mmmmmm :) For $7 you got a lot for your money too!
MOST importantly, it doesn't give me a weird cast over my freckles. I have a ton all over my face and it's so rare to find something that doesn't make me look washed out but still covers my red spots. I love this stuff!
I bought this in Transluscent after seeing an article about it on Yahoo about cult beauty favorites, and being a makeup junkie I couldn't believe I never heard of it! Luckily I was able to find it at a new CVS in my area. I've used powder on and off throughout the years to set my makeup but haven't found one I wanted to use religiously, but I think this may be it. Most of my experience has been with Cover Girl pressed and loose powder (made me kind of itchy and looked cakey), Everyday Minerals (too white and dry), and Silk Naturals (blended right in but didn't seem to do much at all). As soon as I put this powder on after working all day my complexion was instantly brighter, smoother, and matte. I can hardly believe what a fine dusting of this powder did for the look of my skin! I have a fair, cool complexion and this really evens my skin tone and hides my pores. I have no problem with the plastic container except that the holes could be just a tad bigger. I used mineral makeup for a few years so I am used to the sifter and container style. The puff is a nice addition for on-the-go but I prefer to apply setting powder with my BE featherlight brush. I think the container is cute and I'll probably leave it out on my vanity. The smell definitely reminds me of old things, but I don't mind it that much and it fades within 5 minutes. Now I just need to put some in a smaller jar to keep in my purse, because this is a lifesaver for when your makeup needs a refresher but you don't want to reapply foundation! I also can't believe the value of this - a huge container for $6.50, that is just ridiculous for a product that works this well! I might try the Naturally Neutral shade next, hopefully it is not too dark and might offer more coverage for under my eyes. You really can't go wrong at least trying this product if you need a good powder, if it doesn't work for you at least it doesn't break the bank!
I became curious about this product after I passed it for the first time at CVS, and I decided that I'd give it a try one of these days. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The powder itself is loose, but it has a very soft quality to it that will definitely stick to your skin, since I have fine hairs all over my face, this is a good thing indeed. I had heard on here about a fragrance that came with the powder, this I enjoy also, it reminds me of Baby soft. As for how it looks, I am greatly pleased to say that I could wear it with or without foundation. With foundation gives a great finished look, while without would cover my red areas and imperfections. For those with a ivory complexion, I recommend it :)
I love this powder, good scent, good oil control, i have translucent extra coverage, so far so good, and no break me out... just love.... and love..
cheap and last long....
In the past I have never liked loose powder or translucent powder because even though it was supposed to be translucent it lightened my shade, especially in tan summer months, too much. Not this powder. It gives me a nice finish (to me it seems with a slight sparkle, not matte). It's very fine and gives me beautiful, light coverage. It doesn't change the shade of my liquid foundation. This is what I have used daily for the last year and I still have over half of the jar left. I use a blush brush instead of the puff for application. (The puff makes the powder heavy looking and cakey) the only down side is that you loose powder every time you open it and it gets all over. Other than that this is and will be for a very long tim my favorite face powder.
I bought this in the translucent shade. I really loved the smell, it made me feel fresh all day long! However, this powder oxidized my MAC foundation really bad. I usually apply the MAC blotting powder on top of my foundation. I ran out and thought to try the airspun powder. Was disappointed.
I love this powder for setting my concealer under my eyes. I use the translucent formula. I am NW45. The scent doesn't bother me at all. I've had mine for a while in the old packaging. I will probably have this for another year. There is so much.

Coty Airspun face powder is no longer available in Canada, to the best of my knowledge, so I picked some up recently on a cross border jaunt. What can I say about a product that has been around this long (obviously for a reason) and is "cheap and cheerful" - it costs little and does what it says - it's translucent and works extremely well to set liquid foundation and help give a finished look to the face and sort of hold everything in place and keep it all looking fresh. Yes, the smell is a bit "old lady-ish" but to me, that's part of its charm (and there is an unscented option available for those who can't abide the scent or are bothered by fragrances in cosmetics). I even like the puff it's packaged with. The puff keeps the powder from flying all over the place but I also like to use it to press the powder into my face before using a big powder brush to brush/buff it evenly around my face. Gotta love that it is so affordable and does a good job.
My review is for the Coty Airspun Loose powder in the shade Translucent Extra Coverage, and keep that in mind because I think the "extra coverage" is key here. I picked it up at Walgreens for $8.99 but I think you could find it cheaper in Walmart. There is so much powder in the container, will last for months if not longer... there is a strong fragrance so if that is going to bother you I think you will have to pass on this... I happen to LOVE the fragrance, it brings me back to the 70's.
OK, this powder is simply the cream of the crop, outstanding and amazing... and if you have dry skin don't worry because your skin will love this one! Forget what they always tell us about powder going into our fine lines and wrinkles and making us look ten years older, just forget it, will not happen with this powder! You can use this as a finishing powder or as a foundation. I applied the powder with the included puff, I dabbed it all over my face including lips and eyes and then I took my powder brush and brushed off the excess..... the finish that this powder will give your skin is unbelievable... they do not lie when they tell you on back of the container that it "hides tiny lines, wrinkles and blemishes and gives a new softness to your skin." It will just glide over your wrinkles and diminish the look of them...... leaves your skin with an airbrushed appearance and keeps your makeup looking beautiful from early in the morning until you decide to wash it off. I highly recommend this!.
