An excellent powder. The color selection is great. I've found something where I don't have to worry about my powder looking too ashy and gray, or too orangey. This goes on smooth and natural without caking or changing color throughout the day. I would repurchase.

I love this! I have been using it for a few months, and have hardly made a dent in it. The product itself is wonderful, but I hate the packaging and I also find it to be very messy and it gets all over my clothes:/ So I just do my makeup before I get dressed. I'm not a huge fan of loose powders so this may be why. I would probably like it more if it had one of those shave off things

I only bought this because I keep seeing pixiwoo using this (yes I know they do some work for Avon) I also see them using the chanel loose powder also.I might try that next! And I would buy this again..What a lovely powder looks very natural I do not get that powder look when I apply this. It sets in very nice. I actually stopped using a setting spray since I started using this. It looks that good. I have a very oily nose slightly and slightly oily in the rest of the T zone and this really really helps keep my makeup set. Nothing in the world will stop the oil but this really helps a lot and I end up just looking dewy by the end of the night.

I'm a make up artist and LOVE using this to set my clients make up. Its sheer, absorbs oil, sets make up, is soooo soft and doesn't show up in photos. The price is fantastic too. Will definately repurchase.

Love it! I have it in 01 Translucent & I use it everyday to set my foundation. It's fantastic, even better than the Maybelline loose powder I used before.
If you use loose powder on a daily basis, then you should seriously consider getting this Avon powder, it's amazing.

I sale Avon, and I've read rave reviews about this, so I thought I'd pick one up. These are constantly going on sale in various campaigns, so I suggest grabbing one on the sale. This is really nice. I haven't used a loose powder since jr high, but I was curious to try one. I'm glad I purchased this. It gives a flawless finish over makeup or alone, without looking cakey or makeupy! (I applied with a powder brush from Ecotools. I haven't used the puff that came with it.) I purchased this in translucent. I want to try this in medium too. Highly recommend. The pressed version would be handy for on the good, but I'm a fan of loose powders. I may actually grabbed the pressed version for on the go in the future. I recommend this, and I would buy again.

My mom bought this for herself but didn't like it so passed it on to me. I don't use it as much now (my pot is nearly empty and currently can't get hold of it so I'm trying to "save it up" ha ha), but at one point it was HG for me. The container is infuriating though, you have to shake so much for such little product to come out. If you're not careful with it you can end up looking really cakey. It seems to wear off really easily so I used it as my finishing powder. If they improved the container I probably would buy it again.

I had bought this product a long time ago, but never used it.This was sitting on my dresser for a long time.I usually use Milani pressed powder.One day my milani ran out and i was looking for a powder to replace this so i decided to try this.I loved it!!!! The color was a match and it kept my makeup looking fresh all day long.Since i have oily skin i am always disappointed when i look in the mirror after a while to see a shiny nose.Since I've been using this after 3 hours there is no sign of shine.I would buy this product again.

I'm so impressed with this loose powder! I've used the Clinique loose powder for probably 15 years, and my mom gave me this to try when she got an extra one for a dollar. I love it! I'm fair-light and really yellow and the light shade works perfectly. It sets the concealer around my eyes without creasing or caking, and is the perfect finishing touch over my Clinique City Block Sheer. It doesn't look like I'm wearing powder at all and blends away my pores and takes away any shine. I don't like the sifter top, so I just pored it into an old loose powder container I had. Other than that it's my new favorite powder!

I only gave this a rating of four lippies, but it deserves 4 1/2 and that is just because I have dry skin and this seems to dry it and add flakiness. But other than that, amazing coverage when applied over liquid foundation, totally covers up flaws, redness and dark circles. I apply my blush before this to tone down the blush, looks more natural and pretty but not makeup-y. I use a foundation brush or my Quo eyeshadow brush to apply this over undereye concealer. This powder is ultra fine and soft, so it doesn't fall into or emphasize creases or lines, it actually smoothes them out if not layered on too thick. I wear this to perfect the look of my skin with liquid foundation usully Cover Girl Clean Makeup. and I use a shade darker than my white skin tone to act as a non orange fake bronzer. Comes in a shaker jar, I shake upside down with lid on obviously then swirl in my cheapy Walmart brand powder brush(with silver grey handle, looks like Quo's) and lightly apply all over face, then I go over to blend in around eyes and around nose with a foundation brush. I will be purchasing again, besides the drying of this powder (every powder does this to me, so I'm not blaming it on this powder quality, as I find the quality wonderful), but first I want to try out Avon's new mineral loose powder and hope that is the one powder in the world that wont suck up the moisture from my skin.

I bought this for $5NZD from an ex rep, super happy with price and the product! It's a generous size [18g] that will probably last me for ages I expected it to be drying and flakey (like most drugstore ones) but boy was I wrong. The particles are super fine, it blends nicely with my skin tone. It's not drying at all while providing a matte finish. You can use it alone but I use it for setting my makeup, especially over my BB creams since they have a grayish hue. I don't like the puff that comes with it, I use a kabuki or powder brush it's much better. It's fragrance free which means it has the chemical smell instead. Overall I love this product. Has not broke me out.
Update: Keeps skin mattified even after a day of work at a restuarant.

I've been using this powder for several months now and love it. It goes on very smoothly and gives my makeup that final touch for a flawless look.

I have no complaints about this powder! It's inexpensive and it works. I use a little sometimes on my finger to set my undereye concealer and it doesn't get cakey there like some can. The container has a screw top lid so it closes securely. Overall nothing wrong with this, it works perfectly.

HG! HG! HG! I cant believe I havent reviewed this. I'm a beauty junky and have tried all the high end and drug store loose powders. This is my favorite. I have very extremely oily skin, and this is the only loose setting powder that thick enough to not evaporate/sweat off my face. I do not use the cheap sponge that comes with this powder, I use a powder brush. This lasts all day. I also wear this without foundation (such as on weekends, quick errands days), this has enough coverage to camoflauge discolorations!!! This is a matte finish and can look thick if I dont moisturize well, but usually I dont have that problem because my skin always is shiny looking. Price is dirt cheap $6.99 on sale, $9 original price. I have NC37 skintone, I can vary between Medium in the summer time, Medium Deep when I get a dark tan, and Light Medium during winter time.This does not turn colors. The powder itself lasts a long time, I think I can make it last like 10 months with everyday use.
