I love this powder, it just sets foundation so well! I was just gonna buy the coverall foundation, but this was on sale, so I got it, and WOW, it gives such a great coverage. Paired with the coverall foundation its great. But you can also use this on top of any other foundation and it gives you more of a matte finish even if its not a matte foundation, such a great drugstore powder.

I am very pale and to find a true match is a big deal for me so when I saw this in fair I thought for $2.72 I'm definately gonna try it....glad I did!!! Wet n wild has really stepped up their game with this powder. I love it! I bought it to set my Revlon CS makeup and it did a beautiful job. It also covers inperfections very good(for a powder). Overall I am very happy and will repurchase. The packaging isnt all that great....but for less than 3 bucks thats ok!

i have this in 2 shades: fair and fair/light. fair looks to be pretty neutral (maybe slanting towards pinkish) in the pan while fair/light is distinctly yellow-toned. both work well for my NC20-25 skin tone. while this might not be the best powder foundation / pressed powder on the market, it is unquestionably the best @ its price (i scored each for $1.95 while it was 40% off at rite-aid. regular price $2.99 which still can't be beat). the powder is finely milled and does kick up some when i touch my brush to it. i personally don't mind since i prefer that over solidly compact powders that doesn't seem to pick up any product no matter how hard my brush is swirled in it. i found the best way to apply this is to dab my ecotools bronzer brush into the powder and press it gently onto my face. it evens my skintone nicely (i am lucky enough to not need much coverage). it doesn't cake up or irritate my skin and it wears well as well as helps my other face products (ie, blush) last throughout the day. i haven't experienced any noticeable oxidization or shininess throughout the day. by the end of the day there is a slight dewiness but nothing that looks oily or greasy. this is completely matte which i love since i absolutely detest sparkle/shimmer/glimmer/sheen in products i use all over my face as i have absolutely no aspiration to be a twilight cullen. i would repurchase this over and over no question!

Note: Skin type: Oily-combo, very sensitive, acne-prone. Olive/yellow undertones, light medium complexion most days.
I purchased this product in light/medium and was perfect match HOWEVER broke me out, probably due to the vitamin c derivative (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) because Vit. C, while great for normal skin can irritate sensitive skin. I thought I would love this product due to the ingredients and lack of preservatives but no it broke me out.

I went to Walgreens today looking for Ultraswim shampoo (nobody carries it!) and feeling defeated, I browsed cosmetics of course. WNW was on sale! Ooh-la-la! Total splurge purchase: on sale for $1.99. I bought the second lightest shade (fair/light) because the lightest shade seemed too pink/cool for me. I'm about an NC15 or so. It seems to be a pretty good match, with enough yellow for my skin's undertones.
I don't get too whipped up over packaging if I like the product inside. The package, yes, it's cheap. At this price point of course a person can't expect luxury. It would be nice to have a mirror in the compact. Maybe one is hidden: remember those 3 shade eyeshadows? with the teeny hidden mirror? And of course the sponge is throw away. Mainly it's too small and thin to be useful, though in all honesty the firmness/porosity/texture is actually first rate.
The product itself is very lovely: finely milled, smooth, not too heavy. It is a bit dusty so you need a light touch with your brush. I probably would choose a powder that is more firmly pressed for an on-the-go makeup kit. On my skin it is not chalky or heavy, but I use it lightly over an already matte foundation. It keeps the oil at bay as long as any other powder, which is a few hours. I've paid more for powder that matched less and wore more fugitively than this one. It's a lovely little bargain if you can get the correct shade. That's always the problem with drugstore products with no testers. An added super bonus: there is no detectable fragrance which I just love.

At most I would give this a 4, for the moment, I got it to go with the cream foundation from the same line and it does set it nicely, it gives an over all nice matt finish, doesnt seem to irritate my otherwise overly sensitive skin and I didn't manage to make it look cakey on me either. Why I cant give it a full rating is because the particular one I got smells horrible, it has a rather strong burnt plastic smell and at the moment I dont know if its just this particular powder, possibly a bad batch, or if its the formula itself but since its an otherwise great product I'm willing to give it another chance and see about exchanging or even just buying another one just to see. If it was just that particular one I bought then I would most definitely be repurchasing but if I have the same issue then Ill stick with my Rimmel Stay Matte

I purchased the shade in fair which compliments my complexion well, for reference I'm a MAC NC15 or Matchmaster shade 1. The packaging is quite bulky without an enclosed mirror and the included latex-like sponge is useless, but the powder itself is good. Works well to set my foundation without looking heavy or cakey and provides a slightly satin finish instead of a full on matte. This powder did a decent job of minimizing my oily t-zone during the day too. The down side for me, besides the packaging and sponge, is the powder's texture. It is quite soft and becomes extremely messy when using a brush to apply the product. This isn't a powder I would carry in my purse for touch-ups, but for an everyday set my initial make-up application it does do a great job.

I bought it because the reviews and is a good product but definitely I never going to purchase it again, I don't like the feel in my skin after apply it, is a "creamy/powder" felling. I'm prefer the loreal mineral powder or the cheaper Jordana powder... any way I bought the medium/tan and medium tones n I think the closets match for a nc35 is medium.

I purchased both the Medium and Medium/Tan shades. First off, the shades all run on the cool side. They do not possess warm undertones to them at all. Also, on the display, there were no shades offered past the Tan shade shade. And, the Tan shade wasn't really what I would consider to be rich enought in tone to be considered Tan.
People in this world come in a wide variety of shades. Therefore, I fee that there should be a more wide range of truly deeper shades offered. So, that is one con that I definitely had to mention about,, when it comes to the shades offered in the line.
The powder has a very silky smooth texture to it. It provides sheer-to-light coverage. It goes on looking natural and does make you look like you are wearing tons of powder on your face. However, this powder is milled too soft and when you go to use it, it's messy to use (even though its a pressed powder). If I use a brush, I get more mess. If I use the included sponge, there is slighly less of a mess. But, all in all, that is one issue with this powder that I truly don't care for. And, in the end, I actually ended up returning all of the one's that I had bought (which were 4 in total) due to this very issue.

Love it, you can't go wrong with the price but man, its so hard to find a good swatch color online! Where I live in Canada doesn't sell it so I buy online. I have light/medium and boy is it orange in undertone. If anyone knows what one of the lighter 3 shades had the most yellow undertone please tell me. I would appreciate it even more (as well as others) if everyone describes the undertone.

I bought this for $3.67 cdn at walmart.
I got the color Light, the same color as the foundation.
I actually like the packaging because it isn't as big as the Revlon pressed powder. This doesn't have too much coverage which kind of bothers me because sometimes I like to just use a powder when I don't feel like putting anything heavy on my face.
Other than that I would definitely repurchase. This makes my face matte, which I love. I don't have really oily skin but on some days I can get a little shiny on my nose and chin. But when I have this product on it keeps the oiliness at bay.

I bought this at Walgreens for $3. I got it in the color Tan. I wear NC42 and it matches my skin really well. Ive been using it to set my foundation and it looks beautiful. The only cons to me are the packaging. I dont like the sponge applicator they give you and it is kinda hard for me to open. I agree with one reviewer who stated that it doesn't have a mirror and thats no good. But the product itself is wonderful. Love it! Now I am curious to try the tinted moisturizer that is supposed to go along with it for Summer.

This powder I actually do really like but I wont be buying it again ever. Why is this you might wonder? haha. Well I absolutely HATE the packaging...I really despise it! Its terrible and VERY inconvient. Its square, its got NO mirror and there is no room for a puff or sponge because they give you a SUPER TINY sponge inside of it (what am I going to do with that seriously!). I hate it so much!!! You have to either have a powder brush that you can use with it or keep a puff/sponge at home somewhere to use because a normal sized puff/sponge wont fit inside the container.
Anyways...the powder is actually great quality. Its very silky and mattifying, doesnt oxidize or transfer and it sets foundation really well (especially when used with the coverall cream foundation). I have the light shade and it matches perfect for my NC5 skin tone. Its very pale with neutral undertones.
This is really too bad because I would definitely keep this powder if the packaging was more functional. I like using puffs with my powders and being able to carry them on-the-go. : /

My actual rating for this product is probably something around a 3.5. It's a good powder, not great, but definetly gets the job done.
First, my hat's off to Wet 'n' Wild as their lightest shade matches me very well. They don't have shades for darker tones, and it's mostly yellow undertones, so keep that in mind when looking for a shade.
A little of this powder pressed into my skin is enough to keep the oilies on my nose and forehead at bay for a good 6-8 hours. The key here is to use a little. Too much can give the typical cakey, powdery face, a look that I will never be able to rock.
Is it the best powder? No, but it's very good, especially considering the price tag. Not HG, but nice if I'm in a pinch, and I'd certainly repurchase should the need arise.

Silky texture/ feels like mineral makeup not baby powder
Doesn't accentuate lines
No chalky undertone (I'm not sure about the ladies with pink undertone though)
Good staying power (I have dry to normal skin)
Didn't anger my pores
I believe they had more than 3 colors available *not sure because it doesn't show the product on their site as of right now*
Don't even bother with the sponge (perfect to take nail polish off though!)
All colors have a yellow undertone/beige family from what I saw
If you're darker than; kind of tan, sun kissed, potato skin, diet rootbeer, or a caramel cube...this probably won't be dark enough
I usually never wear a powder over my makeup, however after drowning my skin in Lumene products as of late...My skin starts looking a bit like I smeared butter on my face kind of 'sheen'. Not a good look unless I was a bagel. So I was creepin' on all the new spring 2013 makeup/skin care coming out, and found this puppy and bought it....mainly because it said NEW and was 2.99. I couldn't say no to that. I've got medium, the darkest shade I saw, which comes out as a yellow undertoned beige color which would probably match any mid to bronze color skin. I put it over light Lumene BB cream and Classic Beige L'Oreal Lumi foundation and matched seamlessly. It didn't give me that chalky tone or dry feeling that other powders have in the past. It didn't wiggle into drier areas around the eye to make it look like I was in serious need of botox, which I've found a lot of powders and concealers do. I pretty much only buy Wet N Wild to experiment with colors?products before I commit to something pricier. I am however, very happy I bought this.
*I have dryish skin, use the Lumene radiance cocktail at night, slather some Lumene nectar on after a shower, put some BB cream around the places I like to highlight or as a primer, L'Oreal Lumi, Coverall powder, then blush and bronzer. I looked fresh all day.
