This powder is not transparent. Your face will be chalky white.

Not sure why this powder got so many negative reviews! I like it. Light, natural, goes on easily and I like the package. I am scraping the edges to get the last bits out, and I never had any problem with breakage. I never noticed any excess shimmer or sparkle. Just a basic, easy to use powder. I'd buy it again.

Seeing as this product has some bad reviews,I thought I would come to its defense. I really,really like this powder. I have been in mourning ever since Clinique discontinued their gentle light powder,and have been on the prowl for a substitute. This is not loose,as was gentle light,but pressed but all the same I think this is a good find. I must say, I am fair and blond,but this is a great colour for me. And I LIKE the slight sparkle in gives me just a touch of glow and shimmer to my skin without being in your face sparkly. It is not chalky,or grainy in the slightest,but is nice and soft and silky. I find it blends in to my skin well and is neither too matt, or too shiny. I really really Like this powder! But does have noticeable specks of sparkle in if you don't like that effect then stear clear!

This product is garbage. Save your money!!! It is not translucent and the product is chalky, clumpy with lots of fall out. I got it on sale but still expensive for the quality. I paid eight, retails about 14.00. Again save your money. I just flushed 8 bucks down the toilet :(

This has got to be the WORST powder I have ever used. My mother-in-law gave it to me after saying it was too light for her skin. The fact that she said that and the product is SUPPOSED to be translucent should have been the first clue that this product was no good.
When I applied this to my face, it seriously looked like a bag of flour and cheap glitter had exploded on my face. I washed my face off and tried again with a lighter hand. Same result. There is nothing translucent about this powder. It is an opaque white with a ridiculous amount of sparkle mixed in. The packaging is bulky, the brush they give you is ridiculous, and for an a) DS product and b) extremely low quality product this powder is ridiculously overpriced. Unless looking like a teenybopper-ghost is your thing, do NOT buy this product.
