This is my go to face/setting powder. Hit the pan every time and use it every day. Used to use MAC Blotting Powder but felt it was too drying and looked too much like powder on my face. Tried MakeupFover HD powder and it was just too messy and left a white cast on my face. Bought this on a whim after reading some reviews (and having a coupon) and love it!
- Great natural look
- Sets makeup very well - especially undereye concealer
- Great for normal to slightly oily skin
- If you are lucky enough to be a color match blends into your skin amazingly and leaves no powdery look
CONS (Why only gets 4 lippies)
- Not the longest lasting oil control - I usually need to use a blotting paper or reapply around 3pm
- Not the greatest amount in the pan - I go through these rather quickly
- Hate the sponge that comes with the product

i heard somewhere that this was a dupe for MAC MSFN (which breaks me out horribly). I gave it a go and sadly I don't think they're comparable. This isn't a bad product, but it's not great either. It's very powdery and gets all over the place when you put your brush in the compact.
The finish is very cakey, even when applied with a large fluffy brush.
I've repurposed this product and use it on my eyes as a highlight/blender shade rather than an all-over face powder.

This isn't the best product to wear as a foundation, yet it it wonderful when you apply it over your liquid foundation.
It gives a nice hold and makes your makeup look very smooth.
I rate it a 3 for an overall foundation.
Yet a 4 or 5 as a powder to use over your liquid foundation.

Im NC37 and I use Honey. Great match. I use this to set my foundation but only use a little bit. If I use too much then I spray some fix over it otherwise it would look to matte and powdery. When I wear this on its own I tend to use a bit more and it looks like I'm wearing nothing! It definitely keeps my face matte and evens out my skin tone. I don't have many blemishes or redness on my face but enough to notice. It works really well I must admit. I really like this powder!

I hate this powder it makes my face look flakey! it also cakes very easily . This powder is not for my combination skin! I also dont like it when my face looks matte. A matte finish looks fake and not purdy!

I am a makeup junkie. I normally buy high end powders because I thought they were more finely milled. Well, this powder performs extremely well for the money, I may never go back to higher end!
The only thing I would suggest is it is best for those with combo or oily skin. I am combo and I get good results when I have moisturized first. I would not recommend this for drier skins unless you use a very emollient moisturizer first. The packaging is not very protective, drop it and you've lost it. Overall, a great find. I like the fact that it's mineral and not loose but pressed so it's a lot neater and easier to transport and touch up on the go. Bought two different colours, a great match for my skin tone, easy application. Impressed. Thank you Cover Girl!
Edit: The amount of product in the packaging is minimal. I barely used it and have already reached the bottom. Minus one lippy.
Edit 2: Thought I'd try something else but couldn't resist the price of this and the terrific match to my skin tone. I use it to touch up and rid my face of shine. Bought it on sale this time. Does not break me out, which is a bonus. Like the silver colour of the packaging although wish it was a bit more protective.

I used this everyday to set my foundation. I actually hit pan on this, but there's still some product left. It's fairly inexpensive and it's a really good drugstore setting powder. It may be hard to color match yourself, but this is one of my favorite powders. I do have to reapply maybe once or twice throughout the day.

I love this product. I use it to set my foundation. People are always complimenting my smooth flawless skin. Little do they know, its the powder not my skin.

I really like this powder. Compared to other cover girl powders, it's less chalky. Can be reapplied without looking caked on and matches skin without looking pink or like baby powder. Sets foundation well.

I used this powder when I was in high school, along with the matching liquid foundation. I never used this alone, I used this to set my foundation. It worked very well for me, & it controlled oil very well. It looks natural for the most part, it can make you look cakey if you apply too much. This also makes your face matte, so if you like the dewy look, this isn't for you. I remember many people gave me lots of compliments when I wore this. They would always ask what foundation/powder I used. They were shocked when I told them it was this! This works better than Mac Studio Fix, in my opinion. I no longer use powder anymore, I just use liquid foundation for a more natural look. But if I were to ever use powder again, this would definitely be my first choice.

This made the liquid foundation have more coverage, but standing alone, it does not do much. It does not hold up oil control that well, it does not give me the coverage I want, and it does not even out my skin tone or anything. In general, this only good to use on top of the liquid foundation because it gives it a better coverage. Stand alone, I would not buy this again. With the liquid, still no.

I don't know what everyone is talking about, I LOVE this powder. Sometimes I even use it alone because it gives me perfect coverage. I felt like I was wearing a department store powder because it was so smooth and flawless looking. Definately repurchasing.

Usually I wear the Simply Powder but I thought I would try this. Big, big mistake!!! It made my face itch and flared the redness around my nose to such an extent I had to break out the hydrocortisone. Here's the scary part, I had only applied it one time! I never had a reaction to anything that quickly. Back to the store it went the next day and I got another Simply Powder. I really want to try Pur Minerals but I sure don't want another experience like the one I just had.

Okay I am a big department store makeup buying fool But with I am trying to economize so with that I decided to try Cover Girl Trublen Pressed Poweder. I love it! My face stays shine free for hours. Even in 100 degree heat here in good ole North Carolina. I cannot say that for the expensive department store brands.

I absolutely love this product. It sets my foundations perfectly, or I can wear it by itself. It's my go to powder in the morning time-- I actually buy this in twos so I can have one in my makeup bag and one at home. I've hit pan on so many of these it's ridiculous!

I love this product! It sets my foundations and keeps me oil free for hours. It matches my skintone really well. I will buy again.

I was disappointed with this product. It is very very chalky and doesn't provide any coverage at all. I would have thrown this away but I figured it would be a waste so I just use it as a mattifying powder as It does an okay job for that, but do be careful as it will accentuate dry flakes of skin.

Nothing special. I use it to set my foundation and it does the job, but I won't be repurchasing. It does this weird thing in the pan...I'm not sure how to explain it but it's all lumpy and uneven in the pot. It makes me think it's not milled fine enough. It's HORRIBLE alone, really chalky and just sits on the skin. The color choices are pretty good, but I'd say this only really works well as a setting powder.

I really want to like this product as it seems to be great value for it's price, but I just can't. The powder is too chalky for my liking and makes my face really dry. The only thing that is good about it, is that it does blot oily skin throughout the day if needed and keeps the skin matte, however I don't really use it other than that. Will finish what I have left, but will probably not repurchase.

Gross! I hate this product! I used to put it on my nose to cover up the oily ness and well god so many horrible things happened to my skin well first when i applied it you could easily tell it was powder it looked to white on my nose. Secondly, I broke out on my nose and ever since this stupid product i dont have a clear nose anymore i still have the pimple scars. Thankfully, i changed the makeup to maybellines matte powder which is 100% better. But yeah I would NOT recommend this product to anyone...i would say stay AWAY from this product.
