This is a translucent powder that appears snowy white, but goes on invisible. Made in France, bought on drugstore.com for $36.50 USD. The container is frosted glass, heavy, with a screw top lid that is a dark gray. It has a sifter, and the diameter is smaller than most powders so it can be awkward if you use a huge fluffy brush. It came with a ridiculous (but cute) powder pat puff. It contains slightly more than the L'oreal Translucide loose powder at .60 oz (17.1 g). It is odorless. According to the box, the Translucent is .."sheer on all skin tones, this delicate powder imparts a long-lasting clean finish and contains a fine shimmer for a soft luminous glow."
Couldn't agree more, but I really don't see the shimmer, guess it really is fine! This would be a good product for the many women who freak out about fragranced powders. In my opinion, this goes on almost too sheer for the price tag, but it really does set your makeup!

I haven't used any other translucent powders before so please forgive me if this review states the obvious. I love this powder because it has, what I consider, all the best benefits of mineral makeup, in that it evens out my skin and makes it look smooth and flawless...but without any color. I really love that I can use it before or after I put on my foundation, and can still use the color and foundation of my choice. This particular powder comes loose, in a jar with a powder puff. Like any powder packaged like this, it has its pitfalls. However I like that the container doesn't feel like it'd break if it got dropped, and the lid closes tightly so I don't have to worry about it leaking in my makeup bag. For the price, I thought it was a better deal than the pressed version, which costs around $20.00 for .08 oz as opposed to the loose powder that I got which cost me $38.00 for .6 oz. Although the idea of having the pressed powder in a small, individual compact, or a trio compact (with other things like blush and concealer) sounded convenient, I couldn't figure out how I would quickly and evenly apply the powder (the small pressed ones don't come with a powder puff) and I felt like they would run out really fast if I used a brush (which I wouldn't want to have to lug around, it'd defeat the purpose of getting the "travel size" version).
