i love this product!! i have been using this for years. i think this is one of the best pressed powders i have ever used it gives me the full coverage i need and feels good on my skin. I cannot believe this is being discontinued! This worked perfectly well with my any foundations that I apply. I cannot find any thing as good as get even nothing can beat this product not even hello flawless I don’t think il be visiting benefits counters again unless they bought back get even.

I gave this product a 4, does it deserve a 4? Likely not. And here's why: Benefit's get even powder is a god send for me. It brightens my complexion, and it makes for a wonderful touch up powder should I need to do so later on in the day. Why then, if it's as wonderful as I say, do I insist it does not deserve a 4? Why, because it's a discriminating powder. This baby only works for the sallow skinned in my experience. The tones in this powder are so distinctly yellow, and while my Asian skin finds no issue in that, I fear pale porcelain skinned beauties with pink notes in their faces will find this powder lacking to say the least. I speak from experience, my best friend is frightfully pale and adorably red cheeked and pink skinned, this powder made her look like she was dead, like she was wearing a mask, like she'd just taken a horrific chemistry exam, like someone had stolen her car. The feel is wonderful, but when I review Get Even, I must take into account its distributive abilities, which in this case, is limited at best. If you have pink notes in your skin and find this works for you however, that's great! It just didn't work out for anyone pale and pink in my personal experience.

I have shade #2 in this product, and I must say I love this stuff. I don't use foundation, but I do have pink areas on my face (especially cheeks and chin) because of really mild rosacea. This evens out my colour and reduces the redness without making me feel like I have a ton of makeup on. It's easy to apply (I use the sponge it comes with because I'm lazy like that) and stays on my face well. I do find it can be drying, and I am not fond of the flaky look, so I have to remember to moisturize well before I apply it. Sometimes my skin is a bit oily/shiny in the t-zone, so the Get Even mattifies after I first put it on, but a slight shine comes back by the end of the day. I don't mind it, but if you have really oily or dry skin I don't think I'd recommend this product.
Overall, it's perfect for someone like me who occasionally wants to cover redness and even out skin tone, but doesn't like heavy products and doesn't want to spend a lot of time applying makeup. My compact has lasted me for a couple of years, but when it runs out, I will buy this again.

I bought shade 2 which is slightly too light for me, but overall this provided terrific coverage and I would purchase again if the shade was correct.

I've got really oily skin in my t zone, my cheeks, and my nose area but the area around my lips and chin is quite dry. I was all done with my Maybelline Dream Matte powder in the lightest shade and I was using my mothers Lancôme powder but I decided I wanted to try a new product. I went into the store to check out urban decay's de slick but the attendant was just really stubborn and pushy and told me to try out the benefit get even powder.
So it's definitely not a bad product but it's more of a powder foundation than a blotting powder. And I HATE cakey/powdery looking skin and that's why I dislike powder foundations - still if it was just a lighter consistency and not so heavy I think I would really love it but realistically I can't touch up my face with this powder without looking like a fool (I use shade 2 because I've got a yellow tone to my skin). I'm really disappointed because for $30 I should love this product... Ugh now I have to make another trip to Ulta to return this product and find something else.

I like this as a blotting powder but layered for fuller coverage it looks bad emphasizing all the wrong things every little line and hair also not good for dry sensitive skin

I recently invested in this, and fell in love. I use it as a setting powder over flawless finish liquid foundation, and it works miracles. I have yellow undertones and #2 fits me well. As far as oil control - I don't see much of a difference. Lasts pretty,one with minimal touch ups!!(HG for sure)

This is my favorite pressed powder!

I have trouble finding warm-toned face products that are for very pale skin. I don't think this will work for someone with very beige/cool coloring, but then again, most products are tailored to this shade of skin, so just use something else and get over it. Anyway, the color is perfect for covering redness. The powder itself is what I have a problem with. It's very soft (not oil free), but also very chalky. I used it once with a powder brush and it's all over the packaging right now. My main problem: it made me look like I have wrinkles when I am only 23 years old! This stuff stuck to every wrinkle and hair on my face when using a brush. Sponge seemed to work better. I also don't think it will last for the price, as others have said. It is so chalky that a lot of product is wasted without actually going on the skin.

I have been using this product in shade 2 for several years now and I have been VERY pleased with it. I tend to have an uneven skin tone and this product makes my skin look flawless. It doesn't cover up pimples, so applying some concealer to your problem areas helps, but other than that this product really works for me. I always tend to get compliments on my complexion whenever I wear it. Totally worth the $30.00!

This is one of the BeneFit products I just cant do without!
I mainly use it in the summer when my skin tends to get a little clamier and can get rather shiny - especially on nights out!
This is perfect for blotting away shine, its not a concealer, nor is it claiming to be so it wont cover up spots - but does cover discoloration rather well.
If your going to be getting your photo taken I would recommend you brush this very lightly over your skin and blot very gently into very shiny areas, which in my case is always my forehead - and say goodbye to greasy shiny looking skin.
Great little product to bring on a night out to even out your complexion and then get back to the dance floor without looking like sweaty betty face!
Really really love Get Even and so do all my friends!
Definetly give it a try - though less is definetly more with this - go gentle on the powder, wouldnt use the applicator that BeneFit give you to apply this, I always use a big fluffy brush to gently brush over the areas I need it.

I do like this, butr it's not my favourite product.
Being an oily skinned teen, who usually by midday has quite a bright sheen (see what I did there? ;)) across my forehead and nose, this is perfect for blotting away shine and redness, which is what it is meant for. So there we go! however, it will not cover up spots very well, if your after that as well.
I do reccommend this product to blot away shine only! xxx

This powder was a bit dissapointing for me. It has a very noticeable yellow undertone, but it doesn´t cover your red spots very well. It worked well with all of my foundations and really kept my face matte, but not for long time. It works the same like Rimmel Stay Matte, but it´s much more expensive. The packaging is gorgeous, I love the mirror and the sponge.

First off, I think this product has poor color selection. They've got only 3 shades. Unfortunately I got the one in color 03 which is really dark for my skin tone. 02 was way too light. I am an NC35, so wearing this shade made me look like i have powdered mud on my face. And I'm not kidding. This was way too dark. This has a relly strong yellow undertone to it, and might leave you looking quite orangey. The shine control is average, only lasts up to 3 hours max before all my oilies resurfaced. The powder, albeit finely milled looks wayyyyy cakey on me. The coverage is quite high though, but still cakes badly. I'm so sad I couldnt return this, seeing that this was quite pricey. I have tried using this as a bronzer and it made me look dark and dirty, perhaps a light hand is the key. Sigh~~~, what a waste of money~~~

This product made me BREAK OUT HORRIBLY. It did not mattify my face whatsoever. I had to constantly re-powder my nose and forehead and after a couple applications the product starts to look cakey (well, DUH I had to reapply it like 3454343 to keep the oil at bay.) it also did NOT even my skin tone. (refer to the "cake" comment above) After using this product for about 3 days I started noticing pimples and zits popping up all over my forehead and nose, despite the fact that I wash my makeup off every night. It did not serve its purpose as stated. It did however, run off with my $32. Definitely not purchasing this again

I like this. I usually use this alone when I don't feel like doing a full face, for example, like when I'm running to the grocery store. It provides light (very light) coverage, but blurs imperfections. I don't use it to set foundation regularly, I usually use it to touch up throughout the day. I didn't expect this product to be so good at sopping up oil, but it is. I'm very surprised, because i'm extremely oily. After blotting with films and them brushing this on, perfection for the rest of the day! My only gripe is that this is not cheap, and it's not THAT great. I could probably find something that works the same, for a cheaper price.

I've been using this powder mainly to set my foundation. It does the trick but I do wish that the powder particles were more finer. It keeps on most of the day, but does give a dry and chalky look.
Overall I wouldn't recommend...there are plenty cheaper and better quality powders out there. Also the applicator sponge is pretty useless.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
I like this product, it looks nice on and gives a nice smooth look and feel to my skin. It also provides a certain amount of coverage too which is excellent. It neutralises any red areas and is a good colour match for my skin. I picked this up from eBay and it was quite cheap and is actually authentic! I do recommend this product however i think that there is probably better pressed powders out there. I would never pay the full price for it due to the fact that it is a nice product but really nothing majorly special.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
While I like the coverage of this...I am pretty sure it is breaking me out. I have fair skin and got #2 but it does tend to oxidize by the end on my oily skin and I have to touch up a bunch. Also, I use this mainly on my chin and nose area where I have some redness and this powder makes my skin break out like crazy! This is the only thing that I changed so I know it is the culprit. I've used it on and off for about 3 months and I just can't continue to do so. May work for others but oily skin I don't think so :/
