Works quite well- I wouldn't rely on it but it does an adequate job.

Maybe I'm spoiled by my high end powders, but in my opinion, this was not a good powder. Within an hour of applying I had breakthrough shine and it had turned orangey. I used Tone 2. Now, I didn't expect anything really for a buck, but why do they say it controls oil when it doesn't?
Would not buy again even for .50 LOL

The one thing I like is how the company definately tries to make you a happy customer. I originally ordered this in Tone 3. I was disappointed to see a week later that it was far darker than I'd hoped. So I sent an email to the company and they sent me a replacement in Tone 2 free. But it ended up being too light. :( Perhaps if they sold this in a 2.5 I'd definately buy it.

I love the powder because it provides good coverage... not cakey nor sheer, but the color is a little bit orange on my skin... maybe my oily skin makes the color change... i'm an asian and I use tone 2... my face looks healthy when I wear this powder with SSC tinted moisturizer, best powder for summer if you want a tanned look, it does not look like I'm wearing makeup at all... great for this price... better than shiseido, lancome dual, prescriptives and mac blot.. i would buy it again for chrismas presents :)

It's a nice light finishing powder, perfect for taking the shine off, but not if you wanted real coverage. Just smoothes slightly, it still lets my freckles show through, but not so much redness. Rumors of salicyic acid in the formulation, can't confirm.

This gets a 5, but only because it costed $1. I found it to be very sheer and the texture very fine. It blots shine very well, without caking, and comes in a tiny compact, perfect for stashing EVERYWHERE. I keep one in my car to blot midday shine, but it wouldn't suffice as the only powder I use, because of the sheerness. I also keep one in my clutch for evenings out, and one in my desk at work, one in my boyfriend's car...you get the picture. And yes, the packaging is horrid, but for $1 it's reasonable.

I purchased this in "tone 1" for my super pale skin, I really like the powder, very nice for the price, however it turns me ORANGE!!! It looked to be pretty light on the site but once in my hands and even worse on my face I was really bummed. As I said, great powder if the color was right.

Nice orange scent and it goes on smoothly. Product does not close easily when you try to place the applicator inside the package.
