I absolutely love this powder. Im very fair and my skin has a yellow undertone so this is the perfect powder for me. I use this over the Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation in Alabaster and it matches my skintone perfectly. although this is a sheer powder it gives me a little bit of extra coverage, but it doesn't look cakey at all. it looks very natural. This is the only powder for skintone which are fair and yellow undertoned. most of other pale powders are pinkundertoned. This is why I love this so much.

I bought this powder with much hope i got from the gel eye liner.. But it gave me an unnatural finish.. The coverage was thicker than my powder ive been using (viseart pressed powder) also it was cakey around my nose area. After few hrs it seemed to settle in but the nose area just looked like i covered with cream foundation. I guess i was using a lighter powder than bobbi b. The color was right (asian) and coverage too; but it didnt blend in n too thick.

Probably the only matte powder I like ALOT.
Very finely milled, silky almost.
I am NC15-20 and this is perfect for my skin.
The only problem is that it got dropped once and it cracked pretty bad. I still have it to tap my brush into, sitting unmoved on the counter. Ahh expensive but so nice. Must use it all up and buy again.

My go to finsihing powder for 7/12 months of the year. The sheer finsih powders by far give then most natural look and dont matify the life out of a dewy finsih foundation which iskey for me. I am not usre if it is just me but the pale yellow SF powder is the only one in the BB range which doesnt break me out (and im not talking like the other break me out a lot -but i have figured they do a little) Soft sand SF and Sunny Beige SF and SF Pressed all give me a little Break out issue -but the colour match is great in summer months so i keepm using. Great everyday powder which i use daily and wears well with cream cheek products, shimmer powder and to tone down too dark blush.

I like this product but I don't think I'd buy it again. It's a little too pale for my tastes. I'd like to try something new. The makeup artist that put this on me at Murale told me it's supposed to be like that but I think it's too noticeably pale (but not nearly as bad as MAC blot powder). I guess it goes on pretty invisibly. I think it was about $35 Canadian. The clasp used to close the package is a little finicky and while it's not that big a deal, it's not perfect.I have clear asian medium fair skin (smashbox hd fair f1/ mac foundation stick NC27).

Lovely finish, not cakey or to matte, nice as a finishing powder to cover any oilies. Pale yellow is a wonderful color for my skin. Problem is by the end of the day this product has sunk into my pores making them more noticeable. I use Clinique's pore minimizer as it is, so I can't add a product to make this work for me. Too bad, because it is very nice. It is awfully expensive but I may buy again if someday I find some way to make it work. The finish is that nice - when I first put it on that is.

I love this press powder so much! I just bought the second one. It suits my pale yellow skin. It doesn't dry out my skin, but not oily. It makes my face look grow!

This is a fabulous powder in a fabulous compact. Yes, it is. I can wear a pink or yellow based powder, and for yellow, you can't beat this stuff. I moisturize, add SS, spot treat with foundation, and then dust some of this stuff on. Niiiiiice. Very nice, actually. Tones down and cancels redness, sheer finish, never gets cakey. There have been times when a good dusting (with Ecotools blush brush) over moisturizer is fine for a laid back day. Again, the yellow doubles as a concealer. However, it IS a powder, and it does its job well. The compact is great - big mirror and a decent size powder cake. Would absolutely buy again.
UPDATE: Still loving this, months later. I have hit pan and plan to repurchase.

HG for me!! Light enough to blot and not change foundation shade and never looks heavy.

This is a very finely milled pressed powder and truly gives you the no make up look. The colour is light but is really translucent and would suit all light - medium skins, especially Asian colours. It is so light and fine that a couple of dustings throughout the day will leave you looking matt without any cakiness or colour build up. This is the ideal colour to use for touch ups since your foundation can darken throughout the day and this can act as a corrective mechanism to bring it back to its true colour. This leaves the skin polished, matt and clean looking. I would recommend this over NARS, which is just as finely milled but the texture is heavier, so it doesn’t leave you with that clean look at the end of the day.

One of the few pressed powders that are pale enough to match my ppp skin! Pale yellow is exactly what it says, pale yellow! Its great for setting under eye concealer, setting foundation, & spot treating any redness you may have. Because it is yellow it helps knock out any under eye circles your concealer didnt cover up, and does a great job at hiding red blemishes on the face. Again this is a sheer finish powder, but does provide some light coverage. I bought this powder after getting a rec on the board from another pale member. Im nc15 in mac (very pale but with neutral yellow undertones) so this works perfect for me. I will say now that I use a different powder, when i go back to this one my face always looks whiter, so girls that are lighter then an nc15 this may be holy grail material for you. This applies beautifully, and is worth the price imo. I did buy this with bobbi brown's oil free foundation in 0, which was a great color match but I did not like that foundation at all. (too sheer, splotchy, didnt build or last etc) Luckily you can use this yellow toned powder with not only her foundations but any foundation. Cool toned girls, dont be afraid of its yellow color, it will actually help your skin out, and balance redness! Love the nice black packaging, has a huge mirror inside that is the same size as the compact's lid. Im not even a fan of most of bobbi brown's stuff but this is a product I would def repurchase :O)

This is the compact form of the loose powder...It's convenient for touch up...Coverage is good and the powder is quite fine...I like the casing mirror becos it's veri big! Overall it's good!
