I love this powder. I also use the Rimmel primer. Oftentimes I will skip foundation and just use primer and powder.

I have issues with dark circles and redness, and this helps alot. My one complaint, and why I took off a lippie, is the packaging.

It comes with no applicator so I have buy one. The lid flies right off, so I secure it with two heavy rubber bands. But for the price and quality I don't complain. One stays at home, one goes in my purse.

Holy grail powder for sure 😊

A good budget buy. Be careful choosing your shade though. I started out with the Translucent thinking this should match any colouring but for my olive/yellow toned skin it just looked too white. I'm now fairly happy with the Warm Beige. This is a perfectly adequate product for dusting over your t-zone. I just can't bring myself to spend that much on a pressed powder so I will repurchase.

It simply doesnt stay matte on my skin, even after 1 hour. End of review.

It's very good if you have oily/combination skin not recommended for dry skin because it will enhance your dry patches. It's very mattifyng look and love it.

Experience; bought the product twice and I have loved it each time, but I have been getting dry skin lately and it just cakes up onto my dry patches. Recommendation; I totally recommend it if you have oily, combination or neutral skin. Pros; it does keep you matte for 6+ hours and if you have fair skin you will probably find a good match. Cons; The packaging to me seems kind of cheap. I don't like that the lid doesn't connect to the product and sometimes the lid cracks on the side. Also the shades aren't the best for people with tan - dark skin and all shades are mostly cool toned.

A great drugstore setting powder! It doesn't have much coverage, but it keeps you matte and it won't look cakey. It does wear off after a long day though, especially if you're oily.

I have been using this for a few years now and always use it to set my foundation. I use the 001 Transparent shade and it helps my very oily skin stay matte for longer. Definitely works to keep my skin less oily throughout the day. I stopped using it because I ran out and noticed that my skin looked greasy within a few hours. My skin still gets a bit oily but it helps quite a bit.

I absolutely love this ! I apply before I leave to school and it truly keeps me matte all day. The only bad thing is it does have a strange fragrance but other than that this is a great powder !

For the price, this is definitely a great value. In fact, it's one of the best drugstore finishing powders out there, period. I always buy this in the translucent shade. I'm sure the other shades are fine, but I like to apply translucent finishing powders over all of my foundations so the color isn't altered. This will leave a little bit of a white cast, but if you apply it lightly, it won't affect your makeup. The texture is very fine milled. It does have a lot talc in it, which is unfortunate but it's to be expected. For the price (mine was $3) it's not a dealbreaker. If you apply this too liberally, it will cake and cling to your dry patches a little. You don't need to apply much. It mattifies nicely! However, you will definitely need to blot or touch up within 4 to 5 hours, maybe sooner. The packaging is kinda a bummer. The lid just snaps on and it breaks or falls off so easily. This can be a huge problem when you're traveling. The stuff inside is worth it, though! If you're looking for a cheap mattifying powder that does the job well, look no further. It's definitely worth every penny and it's an old favorite of mine.

I have super oily skin. This product is pretty good for it's value. It doesn't keep my matte all day, but for at least a few hours and then some shine peeps through. It would be better it the lid was attached for better portability. If you dust it lightly over your skin, it doesn't look cakey at all.
