I bought this recently in Soft Honey. I am acne prone, so decided on this one rather than the one in the the brown container that I'd used in the past. I do like it. It gives really good coverage for a powder (I do not wear foundation and only own a Marcelle BB cream I seldom wear). I rely on a powder as my only face make-up. This is nice, even matte coverage, long lasting too. I realize tho, buying it in the midst of winter was prob not the best idea as it's a tad too dark for me. However, it'll be perfect for the spring / summer months when my skin's darker. I have not had it long enough to state whether or not it will break out my acne prone skin, but will up-date. Certainly hoping that it won't as it's oil free tho. I do really love their new "Ready Set Gorgeous" pressed powder. May actually combine the two a little. Like put the Soft Honey on my cheeks until summer when I can wear it all over face.

I really like it!

I have been using this product for about 2-3 years. My skin is oily, and is leaves my skin looking matte for hours. It won't cause my skin to breakout. The smell is soft and pleasant, and it is not an expensive powder.

This is a great pressed powder if you have moderately oily skin. As soon as a applied it my skin looked matte (sometimes too matte) and no oil was visible. I do have to say that it wears off fairly quickly and doesn't give extreme coverage if that's what you're looking for in a pressed powder. I know for me, I don't like powders with full coverage, so this was perfect. I would definitely repurchase this.

Controls oil pretty well, but not super well. Easy to carry around, but the compact isn't spacious enough to fit a compact inside (won't close) so I had to put a hair tie or elastic band around it. Price is good. Might re-purchase.

This powder is pretty chalky even when you just apply a light layer. It claims to be "oil control" but my face still gets oily soon after application, but then again that's the case with any powder. I think I prefer the sensitive skin version more just because it isn't as chalky but this one is okay and I'd still use it.

I have just finished up a compact this morning and of course, it wasn't until then that I realised how orange this turned on me! I must've walked around looking like a troll for many months! Good God! I have/had this in buff beige and although, in the pan it looks like a good match, it isn't. I'm an NC20 and most light, drugstore powders suit me well but this surprised me. I usually use Buff Beige in other CG products but this was off and didn't control oil well anyway depending on which foundation I used. Maybe this is why they got rid of it in most stores. I'll use up my backups and search again for my perfect setting powder.

Not a great powder but it will do the trick if needed.
It does not control oil at all and I find the shade range to be quite hideous.

Ugh! This was very chalky! I have very oily, clog prone skin and hoped that this could be used on its own or over foundation. I got the shade buff beige, which was a great match. The packaging said that this was suitable for sensitive skin, which drew me to the product. It hasn't broken me out. But the powder is so chalky and just sits on top of your skin. Wearing it alone, the powder lasts only 2 hours without my skin absorbing it completely. It doesn't cake or get patchy as it wears away tho. Over foundation, this doesn't last at all. I get like an hour max before it disappears. There's barely any shine control. The only positive is that this doesn't clog pores and the shade matches me. But there are better pressed powders out there!

Cakey. Chalky. Packed on. Whatever floats your boat, those are the results you'll get with this powder. Being i'm in high school and on a budget I've purchased this twice on sale for 4.99 CAD. I would look so cakey and it was disgusting. After finding Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder that you can also get for 4.99 CAD on sale, I will never go back to this one. Also, BOTH times that packaging broke on me. Not worth my money.

I bought this along with the Oil Control Foundation (I got the powder in the color Light Medium). When I applied it just looked cakey, so I had to apply a very thin layer (has a decent amount of coverage). I would get oily about 1-2 hours prior to applying it. When I tried to touch up, it just made it look bad and even more cakey looking. Creases pretty badly when you smile or do any face movements. Also, the packaging broke pretty easily. Not my favorite powder. I have tried it with other foundations as well, with no better results.
