This powder is strange: it sets and mattifies (but not great) but adds absolutely no coverage on me. However, after setting it will 'cake' in the pan and I will have to scrub the caked up powder. I only get that with this powder and the Physician's Formula, I'm thinking as they're both very pressed and the foundation I use are still 'wet' when I set them. My bad but I'm used to speedy application and it doesn't happen to other powders, lol.

The reason for my rating is that it doesn't compare to other powders that do a much better job with mattifying, setting and covering. This just does so little. The only pro is that it lasts for a while because little product comes off. Then again, it just takes longer to rub the brush over it to get product..

I used this powder for years without foundation and it worked well for me most days. The only negative thing I have to say about this powder is the applicator pad that comes with it is absolutely ridiculous.

I seriously had the feeling with this product that the color fitted me so much that it didn't even show...i mean it didn't do anything, it definitely didn't have any coverage and it definitely didn't help me set my make up...it seems to me that it is useless and a waste of money.

The price on this product is very reasonable, and I mostly like it for that reason. I really enjoyed using it at first with the Fit Me foundation, but found that over time it became greasy and oily on the surface of the powder even though I use clean brushes and my skin is normal to dry. I think this is a good product for beginners and it pairs well with the foundation.

The Kmart near me was going out of business and just about all the makeup aisles had been raided. I found the fit me press powder in the way back of the shelf untouched. Looking at the shade I realized it was about the same as my fit me foundation and would work great to keep it from wiping off. I love the soft velvety feel of the the powder. I always wear it after I put my foundation on and never alone because when I do it extenuates my pores and make any small pimples stand out to much. My only negative thing to say is that the brush/ cotton that comes with it is nothing but a waste. Use your own brush cause it isn't good

As a girl with fairly good skin and relatively few major acne flare-ups, I don't wear much in the way of face makeup. I don't like foundation or anything too heavy, and I don't have a need for heavy coverage. After applying BB cream and a light concealer over dark circles and a few minor blemishes, I use a face brush (not the pad applicator it comes with) to lightly put the powder on. I previously used Elf's pressed powder, but when I went to repurchase that, they were out of my shade. So I decided to spend a little more and buy this one, as I've heard good things on YouTube about it. I had absolutely zero idea which shade to buy, and in retrospect, I would've gone a shade or two darker; but I bought the 225 Medium Buff shade. Up close when I'm applying it, I can tell it's a little bit light for my skin tone, but it's not noticeable if I lean back from the mirror. (And that's my error either way. It has nothing to do with the actual product.)

The packaging is really nice, and I like that it comes with a mirror in the compact. It comes with a circular powder puff pad thing (no idea what they're called), but using that made my makeup look cakey. I switched to a brush, though, and that makes it look very light and natural. The powder is loose and light, but not light enough to just blow off or not stick to my face. Some powders have a weird odor to me, but this one doesn't really smell like anything odd. Since I don't need a lot of serious cover-up, I don't notice too much if it comes off. It will rub off a little if I wipe my sleeve over it, but most powders do that. It doesn't totally mattify all day, and my nose (as usual) tends to get shiny, but a quick re-dab does the trick. I haven't tried a ton of powders, but I really like how lightweight this one is, and since I don't need a lot of coverage, it works well for me. If you're looking for a heavier coverage, though, this might end up cakey. I'll definitely repurchase this!

Meh - didn't do much for me at all either as a foundation or as a touch-up powder.

I, to be honest, bought this product on sale thinking it might work as I was feeling adventurous with my foundation... But I am really disappointed with how it caked up my face. Let me tell you, I am never going to wear it again. Not the best packaging either and I don't like how it makes your face all creamy feeling when its not even liquid.

My favorite part about this product is that it looks very natural. This series has a very natural tone pallet, so I don't face the face&neck color differences anymore.

I bought this powder along with the foundation (same tone) and they both work out well for me. They last me all day whereas other sets of foundations and powders would either fade away, look dry or even worse - cake-y.

Nothing to complain about.

This powder is fine to begin with but it literally wears off within 1-2 hours, it makes your base look completely dewy and you need to keep applying it all the time throughout the day. Did not fancy this at all, and the packaging looks even cheaper than it is.
