I LOVE THIS POWDER. Bought this in store for $2.50 I couldnt' believe it! I wear the color buff and it is amazing on me! doesn't cake up, doesn't smudge, blends easily and just so natural looking! plus the ingredients are incredible and great for my skin as well! A WIN WIN. It's definitely an underdog drugstore powder and I highly recommend it if you can find it at your drugstore. I think it's being discontinued and/or transitioning out soon! So stock up while you can! =)

I recently purchased this in "golden" as an emergency buy on the way to a meeting when I didn't have my compact and in the Hawaii humidity I absolutely needed a powder touch up. I've only used it for about a week but I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality. It's a great setting powder but also is slightly buildable with a kabuki, I forgot my regular mineral foundation the other day and used this since I had it in the car, and while the coverage is pretty sheer it did fine in a pinch. I love that more mainstream (and in this case, cheap!) brands like wet n wild are adding more natural options to their product lines. Even though the sponge that comes with it sucks and the packaging is a little strange, I give 'em props for at least attempting to use recycled materials. For the price would definitely re-purchase this as a back up or keep in the car kind of powder. Oh and I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and this hasn't irritated or exacerbated break outs at all.

I have ultra-sensitive skin and I am usually unhappy with face powders. This natural powder worked for me.
~ No breakouts at all.
~ Does not dry out the skin. The Physicians Formula mineral wear powder was super-drying for my skin and also caused some breakouts.
~ Does not cake up or crease.
~ Goes on smoothly. I use my fingers to apply it, after putting a moisturizing base on the face.
~ Decent price for the quantity. I have my eye on the Gabriel brand pressed powder available at Whole Foods, but it is too expensive and I'd rather wait for a sale.
~ Availability! Availability! Availability!
With Physicians Formula acting up on their 'Organic Wear' powder availability (it is not in stores and while some drugstores do carry the organic wear powder, it is available in only one shade), WnW is a good alternative. I found it at the local drugstores.
~ Oh, and the WnW brand natural powder does not have that skunk-like smell that PF's organic wear powder has!!
~ The cheap sponge that comes with the compact is useless.
~ Yes, the 'warm beige' shade may look a bit orange after a few hours. It does not happen all the time, so I suspect there is some weather/hormone(?) dependency.
I should have chosen the 'Golden' or 'beige' shade for my skin color.

This is my favorite powder of all time - for now. It's not too cakey and it actually has a tone that's not too dark for me!

The coverage is good, but it doens't last all day. After a few hours, my skin looks shiny, especially on my nose.
The scent is very strange, and the packaging is crappy. But it is very good for the price.

I am absolutely SHOCKED to see all the good reviews on here. I can't even begin to tell you how horrible it is. I have never had acne problems in my life, and after using this powder for maybe a week I had the WORST breakout ever. It was no doubt caused by this stuff and I stopped using it immediately. Stay away from this powder! It might be dirt cheap but it's absolutely awful for your skin, not even to mention the ugly cakey finish it leaves.

This quality of this powder is outstanding! Yes I know, the sponge is crap and the packaging is crap...who cares? I could care less as long as the product is this good.
The thing is, I never would have bought this product if I had not read all the rave reviews on Makeup Alley. This product looks so, oh I don't know, I guess it looks so lowbrow and so Junior Highish that I always just passed it by in the store. Finding this product is like marrying the town nerd and then having him turn into George Clooney later on. Just goes to show you that you cannot judge a book by its cover. Have you seen pictures of George Clooney when he was in Junior High??? Yikes! Who would have ever known??? Anyway, back to this review.
I take the crappy sponge and smooth in on in the mid afternoon when my liquid makeup is breaking up on my oily face. I simply cannot believe how gorgeous this product makes my skin look.
Rite Aid has Wet n Wild 40% off this week and you also get $3.00 extra bucks back. I fully took advantage of this sale and bought every single one in the lightest color they make. Now I have one at home, one at work, one in my car and one in my purse.
Hopefully Wet n Wild won’t discontinue this awesome product.

This powder is awesome especially for the price.. however the packaging sucks .. it's SO cheap! The sponge that comes in it is AWFUL!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Grey
I love it. It goes on light when you want it to, and can be used as a concealer with a concealer brush for heavier coverage. Dirt cheap and doesn't hurt my sensitive skin. We have a winner bob!
The only issue, is it doesn't seem like it controls my tzone oil very well. I prefer a matte look, and this gives me that, but doesn't keep it for long. I wouldn't buy it again. Rimmel's Stay Matte pressed powder is pretty much the same price and it's exactly what I need.
I think this would work great for someone with normal to dry skin.

I love this stuff. It works super well. I have it in "natural." It is cheap and I feel like it stays on all day and is especially effective in teaming up with concealer to cover a zit.

Like many others here, I purchased this whilst traveling because I forgot my compact. What a pleasant surprise - it has great full coverage (initially anyway) yet it's not thick or heavy. I can't believe that I'm even saying this but this is the winner for the cheap powder category for me. The only downside is the packaging - it's annoying to open and close and the powder styrofoam puff is small and gets matted down way too quickly.
I have purchased the natural 821A, bare 824A, and ivory 822a. The ivory is very pink - think light apricot and so I am going to use it as a highlight or even very faint blush or mix it with my blush to lighten it up.
I am totally in love with this powder. The best cheapy powder to date. Who woulda thunk it?!

This powder is the best I've ever tried. The ingredients don't irritate my sensitive skin, and the coverage looks natural while acting like an hd powder foundation to blur flaws.

I bought this stuff in a pinch and by mistake when I traveled and forgot setting powder. Thankfully, it works marvelously (marvelously!) as powder foundation. Seriously. This powder foundation is at least as nice as MAC Studio Fix and Shiseido Powder Foundation. It helps a lot that the color I chose (Bare) matches my skin pretty well. I buff it in with my EDM long handled kabuki and it blends in seamlessly, covering acne, acne scars, and evening out my skin tone. And then it stays on for at least as long as MAC, Shiseido, or EDM . Love it and will buy it again!

I seem to like buying powders atm, even though I now own a lot, many I do not use because they do not do much. I have yet to find a powder that actually helps control oil! Even this one, it gives me a nice finish and matte-fies my bb cream, but after about 2 hours, my face gets a bit oily.
I really like how I didnt break out from this unlike some of my other powders, and that it contains natural ingredients WOOT and the packaging is creative, but It's not a fave. I find that although it is more eco-friendly, the packaging just isnt something I would like to carry around, because since it is card-board and is white, it gets dirty FAST, which sucks, but I suppose, in the end, that its the product that counts (: although my powder pan broke into three pieces and i never dropped it before...
i recommend for a try, and it isnt pricey, so even if you dont like it, you wont feel too bad(: Im using it everyday atm, but hopefully I can find one someday that doesnt have too many harmful ingredients and actually helps with oil control:p For some reason, I think I would still repurchase this eheh (maybe Im just a real sucker for natural products:$)
EDIT: well now this pressed powder became a loose one because it randomly shattered on my vanity...but i still like this powder for oil blotting. It blends nicely and looks natural on me. I would repurchase 2-3 back-ups if I ever have another vacation in the U.S. Canada unfortunately does not sell this!

It's sad i couldnt find it in other colours that did actually match my skin tone.. But i love how pigmented it is, and you get a little cute sponge that is not useful at all.. maybe it would work good as toiletpaper?
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
i liked this powder b/c it controls well and it is soo light weight but i dont like that i bought it in golden and it was too light on my skin i maded me look pale and discolored and also it would also leave my skin looking powdery plus the packaging is kinda bad b/c if it wets it will fall apart since it only cardboard

I got this on sale at Walgreens and was really hesitant because I don't think of cheap drugstore brands as leaders in "natural" makeup. I needed a pressed powder, this was on sale, and I was pretty impressed with the ingredients. The powder is very fine, and is not heavy like a powder foundation. It definitely reminds me of powders that are silica like, because it does seem to mattify and cover some slight flaws. I really like using it over my concealers and some foundations that finish very dewy or wet. The packaging is terrible though...my powder shattered the second day I got it, and I don't believe I dropped it. I should've known since most of them were shattered or damaged at Walgreens. Other than that I would definitely purchase again.

Bought it cuz I was running out of Maybelline mineral power and the tiny drugstore didn't have it. At first I liked it cuz it controlled oil well. But it irritated my skin especially when I washed my face. Coverage is too sheer for my liking. "Sheer to medium coversage" my ass....
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This powder is absolutely incredible!! For the inexpensive price it really does a great job at controlling oil and a decent coverage. I'm going to put away my Dior powder for now and take out my naturally pressed! Only one downfall is the cheap sponge it comes with but it has a miror and for 5 bucks... sounds good <3
