Good color, good coverage but it did end up making me break out in really painful cystic acne. I will say that it didn't make me oily and it made my face look flawless despite not using anything but primer underneath it.

This is a wonderful powder/foundation. It is the first one that does not test on animals I have been able to find that actually gives me that dreamy, creamy, air brushed (as much as I can look like that at 46 yrs old) look. I tried it at Kohls, had a fifteen percent discount card and bought it. Had to wait until the product came in as it had been out for awhile- my particular color. It looks good on my tanned skin, and even if I lose some of the tan , it still looks good. I got the third one in the warm family. There were two others that were lighter than mine. CAn't remember the color. Too lazy to go downstairs to get it.
This stuff is beautiful. Stays on all day. Have not broken out yet. Only use it when I'm going out though. Mostly makeup less .Sometimes I just use the powder and other times I put it on top of my Paula's Choice foundation or my American Beauty Diamond foundation.

Went through 2 compacts of this in the Fair Cool tone before my skin went haywire during pregnancy. It was awesome! Made my skin look totally perfect. I used this over the American Beauty foundation and my friend's sister-in-law always asked her how my skin got so smooth. I think she was jealous and I never got a chance to tell her that it was just good makeup!
If you aren't broken out, this stuff is wonderful for a polished, smooth look. You can use a small brush to add a little extra coverage to blemishes, though. And keep this away from your eyes, it is too heavy and drying for that area!

EDIT --- I previously was not impressed with this, but after using it a couple more times and noticing how it did during the day, I have to say this is a good powder foundation to keep in my purse for daytime touchups. The fair/cool color is a good match for my PPP skin, and it isn't chalky or powdery looking. It also covers pretty well for a powder. Will keep my my purse for daily touchups at work, and may very well repurchase when I run out.

This was another step in my journey to find the perfect powder foundation without spending an arm and a leg. I felt that it was nicely packaged and has a good sized mirror in the compact. Light Medium Warm was a good color match for my C3/NC25 skin. It gives very good coverage with a velvety powder finish whether it's applied with a kabuki brush or a sponge and looks great for about an hour.
I generally don't have oily skin but my skin starts to look oily after an hour after applying this. A touch up works fine. However, after one or two touch ups my skin looks atrocious at the end of the day. My skin just looks...icky and I can't wait to wash it off. It has also caused breakouts along my hair line and those big cyst-like pimples on my chin just like Studio Fix. This is with daily face cleaning everyday before bed. That's definitely a deal breaker for me.
So I guess I'll have to go crawling back to Clinique Perfectly Real liquid with my tail between my legs. Gawwwwwd, I hate liquid!

Adore! I love powder foundation and I've tried quite a few, from drugstore to high end. This is exactly what I'm looking for. The color was perfect, 03 Light/Warm. The coverage was awesome, and yes, yes, yes it didn't look chalky! Both Maybelline's and Cover Girl's made me look like I had wiped my face across a chalkboard. The finish is kinda matte but not overly so. It doesn't contain SPF, to my knowledge, which is sort of dissappointing. But the price on this is pretty darn reasonable and the packaging is very luxe and of great quality. Would repurchase any day!

I love powder foundation, and this wasn't that expensive, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Needless to say, I returned it the next day. After less than an hour the color had changed on my skin and I looked like an oompa loompa. It did nothing to control oil on my skin and I was super shiny, super fast. It was so bad, I had to wash it off my face so I wouldn't be seen in public looking like that. I hate giving a bad review, but this just did not work out for me, and if you have oily skin, I wouldn't recommend it.

I bought this in Fair/Cool to wear over the liquid foundation.
It is velvety smooth and looks great!
I will buy again!!!

I like this to carry around when I am worried about losing my better or more expensive makeup it is made by estee lauder so it is a good product. I especially like on the airplane since when I check my luggage my makeup disappears (EVERYTIME!) and when I carry it on it ends up getting smashed as the overhead compartments become so jammed packed. I just wish that it could be used wet for a little heavier coverage.
American beauty=Estee Lauder
all of the above are owned by Estee Lauder and in the stock holder options book it equivilated the lines as above. EL went into Kohl's so they could capture a larger market share of those areas that do not have other department stores.

I am a MAC girl, but there is a problem with this dedication; I live 90 miles from the closet MAC counter. Color adjustments; require a visit to the store. This summer when I was in a pinch for a slightly darker powder I started my search locally.
I found the American Beauty products by chance. Color selection was easy and quality is very close to MAC. I use a brush to apply my powders and the coverage was very good, natural and stayed all day without touch-ups or separation. The real test is when applied on top of sunscreen. This product passed with flying colors.
The case is quality too. Rectangular, with a full mirror and small sponge.
Also, I have very sensitive skin and this product did not cause problems.
By the way, this is a Estee Lauder product. If you like Estee Lauder than you will like this product. Difference is; it is just less expensive.

Well I do not know what I was thinking. I think I saw this at a weak moment or something. I bought this in the light cool and when I put it on at home, I could not beleave my eyes, the color actually changed right before my eyes. I watched it get darker and darker. It was really weird and besides that it seemed to cover well but when I went outside it did not cover as much as I thought I could see some blemishes right through it. The finish was just not good. So I returned it the next day at Kohls and the cosmetic lady was really weird acting about returning it with a receipt and only used one time. Well I am used to being able to return products that do not work out for me with out any hassles. Anyway she did take it back but the experience with her was a total turn off and I will not try any of the products there again uless I know that I will like it. Needless to say, I would not repurchase this foundation ever again. I will stick with my Prescriptives Anywhere foundation and I will never stray again.

From the ingredients, the texture (even though I think this is more fine than MAC SF)& the finish are similar to MAC studio Fix. The price is not cheap compare to SF: $16.50 for 10g while MAC $24.00/15g. However, since Kohl's always have 20% off all their cosmetics line, this may be a few dollar cheaper than MAC's. The color selection is good but not as many as MAC's. I bought Fair/Warm 01 for my MAC NC25, very good match. I don't like the package because it's heavy & bulky. I think the coverage is full & less dry than SF. I don't know if I will repurchase it (I wish we have "Maybe" option here). Because I don't want to carry it around in my purse for touch up. Anyway, it's a very good powder foundation with medium to full coverage, if you can find the color match.

The color I chose was a perfect match Light/warm but Talc the first ingredient! I started to break out almost immediately with this product which was a shame as it is so hard to find a perfect match for my skin. I'm still using it but am making sure to be extra careful to make sure I remove every trace of this and then use a toner afterwards. The container's hinge is not very good. I've never taken this out of my bathroom/cosmetic bag and it is already starting to have problems opening the container.

I'm on the fence over this product. I have dry skin, but I prefer powder foundations because they're easier to use. I'm searching for a much cheaper version of Chanel's Double Perfection Powder, which doesn't look cakey and leaves my skin luminous. This Super Plush Powder Foundation is definitely matte and if you have drier skin, it looks cakey and heavy, but pretty much all powder foundations do this on dry skin. It's comparable to MAC's Studio Fix, IMO, but for a few dollars more, MAC's offers much more product. I guess I either need to shell out the $50 for Chanel or switch to liquid, which is such a chore for me. This powder foundation would probably work well on someone with normal skin. UPDATE: I recant my former statement. This powder is awesome. Using this with a powder brush makes all the difference. The brush makes the appliation process so much easier; less product, no caking. I apply it in the morning and by the time I get home from work (9 hours later), it's still there and my skin looks great. I also receive compliments on my complexion. Will definitely repurchase.

I was really excited to try out this powder foundation; powder foundation is my favorite kind of base for my super oily skin, but I have yet to find my HG. The price is $16.50 for a decent, but not generous portion of makeup. Being a Kohl's employee, I got a 30% disc. for associate shop day, and $5 off my purchase because I spent over $25, so this really was a bargain. However, the great price didn't make it a good purchase for me, but maybe it will work for those with more normal or combination skin.
~Packaging~ It's a simple, but modern, rectangular white compact with a large mirror inside. The mirror is kind of inconvient, as it is long and skinny, and does not really give a good view of the whole face. Inside there is a small square of product (I was shocked at how small, but I guess the compact is a bit deeper than most) and next to it is a small sponge/place to put the sponge. My gripe is with the sponge area, as it is only about 1"x1", and that simply is not big enough for an all over the face applicator. Also, while you can throw away the tiny sponge it comes with, a larger replacement can't be carried in the compact.
~Product~ As I said earlier I love powder foundation. It's portable, quick and easy, has buildable coverage, and gives good oil control. While I would debate the portability of this product, it is quick and easy, and the coverage is superb. I tried this at a time when my face was horribly broken out and all red and splotchy, and just a few swipes of this made my skin even-toned, and I didn't even need concealor. The finish was beautifully matte and not cakey at all; I was in love until about 2 hours later when my face looked like it had been rubbed with Crisco. Agh! I tried it a few more times, each with a different mattifier underneath but each time I just ended up an oil slick. I think it actually made my face get oilier as I have never seen it that bad. I wanted to use it for something because I hate returning or throwing away makeup, so I tried it as a powder over foundation but that was too chalky and cakey looking, even applied with a fluffy brush.
Pros: Price, intial coverage and finish, good color selection (got a perfect color match), testers in store, sales associates to help, etc.
Cons: Packaging, doesn't control shine
