It's nothing more than an average powder. Mattifies and covers a bit. What I dislike is the color range, the oxidizing and cakeyness. I also found the texture a bit dry. Won't repurchase...

Perfect Perfect Perfect!!!
Its an amazing little thing for my combi troubled skin. It provides amazing coverage and is super long lasting. Guess what, I dont need to touch up anymore in atleast 8 hours. Can you believe it? I use it with a puff and it stays put for atleast 8 hours. Gosh, I simply love this. I have it in shade 'Sun Frolic'. You cant beat the price as a little goes a long way and almost no touch-ups... Yay, I am cloud nine!!!

I bought the Translucent as it was the closest match to my skin tone. The sponge it comes with is not very good and it's better to apply it with a large powder brush.

However, it has an overpowering "old fashioned" smell and it is this, more than anything else, which would put me off buying it again.

I originally bought a Creme Puff compact in the shade 'Candle Glow' - however it was waaay too dark for me. Very orange! Recently I decided to give it another go, but this time I did my research on the shades and picked 'Truly Fair'. It's a much better match. I actually really like the smell, it's nostalgic and strangely comforting. I wouldn't recommend you using a powder puff to apply this with. I use my ELF Complexion brush and it works really well for setting and mattifying purposes. - personally, I wouldn't use it as an all-over powder foundation. I do think that for what it is, it's too expensive. Also, if you're thinking of trying out Creme Puff I think it's best to see what the shade are like in person. A lot of the online swatches I've come across are completely off!

I love the smell of this product and the coverage is good. Its Matte finish over liquid foundation lasts and it applies well with either brush or sponge.

Good powder. Its perfect for everyday use.
Provides good coverage with a nice glow to skin.
Feels natural and light on skin. Can hardly detect makeup on me.
Great for dry skin with T zone oily type skin.
Lasts for hours with no touch ups required.
It ran 6 months for me. Will try another shade this time.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It's been a while since i've loved a powder this much. You need to pick your correct colour - so know what you are buying. But it gave me this airbrushed looked, that lasted and lasted... even in sub tropical humidity! I was only a tad shiny after like 6 hours. I used it ontop of my foundation/sunscreen/primer.

Ok, there is a strong smell... but I actually like it! It has a powdery classic smell, and it's kind of lovely, really.

The sponge it comes with = rubbish. Use a brush to apply it and lightly buff a few layers on. After about 10 min it settles beautifully into the skin. Very happy!

Got mine on ebay for like $6.

Was I just very unlucky with my product? I read everyone raving about it and bought it to see how it worked for me. Uh, well...
Pros: Coverage is okay and it stays on my nose.
Cons: ... Where should I even begin? The colour is different depending if I apply it straight on my foundation base or my bare moistured face, it's hard to get any product from the package at all onto my brush, applying on face with brush or sponge won't make any difference in how it gets caked upon my face and starts to become flaky after a while. It shows my fine lines and wrinkles too, which is not very appreciated since I'm barely 20 years old.
In short: if I want a powder that actually does something good for me, I'd prefer a supermarket powder over this - that powder might even remain the same colour as it first is when I try it on!

I've never ever used a powder foundation nor a translucent powder. I thought it's time to get one. So, I bought Creme Puff to 1)set my foundation and 2)to give me more coverage. Well, it did what I wanted and the color matches me perfectly!! (medium beige)
I cannot compare it to another powder since it's my first one I got.

Will re-purchase. Highly recommended for the same reasons I got it for.
