I bought this powder as a quick fix from the supermarket after my beloved MAC minerlize skinfinsh got broken. I wish I hadn't of bothered. I tried the product and compared it to others in the shop and decided it was a good match for me. The first time i used it I liked it ok. But from then on it seemed to settle into a orangey colour after about an hours wear. It has a nice texture and blends nicely but it looks a bit artifical on my skin. It also caused my chin to erupt in nasty looking spots so I stopped using it pretty quickly.
The compact is quite sturdy which is a plus if you're carrying about a lot but I found having the sponge applicator underneath the powder quite irritating. the mirror is also difficult to use as its on the small side.
Another plus is it goes on nicely if using a brush. I wouldn't recommend using the sponge as I found it very easy to over apply with this.
Overall its a bit disapppointing, it won't break the bank but I don't thinks its a true match for me.

I used to use this before I knew much about makeup. When I went to buy foundation for the first time my friend said she used it and it was good. Maybe it was on her skin. Years (literally) later I realised that it was actually pretty horrible. It clings to my dry patches and does not last well at all. Horrible. It is also soooo cakey! I didn't really realise how horrible it was until I started using bourjois healthy mix!

I am the shade Classic Tan in this powder (frame of reference--I'm an NC45 in Mac). Classic tan is a neutral shade, but I like that because it works well to tone down the yellowness of my Mac foundation when lightly dusted over it. It also looks great on its own. In fact, when I wear a good amount on its own, it looks like I'm wearing foundation! The only reason why I don't just use this powder as foundation is because it doesn't last that long on its own. Overall, great shade, truly is a "True Match," and nice consistency. I wish it could be a tad bit silkier, but for its cheap price, it's not bad at all.

I use this product through out the day to mattify my t-zone and I love it for that use. Ive also used it a few times to set my makeup in the mornings and it also works pretty good for that. The color matches me good and i will be repurchasing.

I bought this before in classic tan and the color was perfect! the next time i bough it seemed like they changed the color and it was super orange. Coverage is good but its a little chalky.

I really like this powder. I have repurchased it 5-6 times and was never disappointed when it came to the quality of the powder itself. It is quite light and easily blends into your skin. I often break out from pressed powders, as I have sensitive skin. In terms of quality of the powder, it is comparable to the pressed powder by Lancome.
I have very fair skin and this powder doesn't make me look dead as it has slightly a pink undertone.
However I am not a fan of the packaging. It is just too big and bulky, for the amount of product that you get (9g). I don't use the sponge as it doesn't evenly distribute the product on your face.
Overall I think that it is a great product. It evens up your skin, but you don't see that you have make up on.

So, I bought this product a month or so ago. My skin is pretty fair so I bought this in the neutral shade. It looked like my skin tone in the pan but when i used it to set my makeup, a few minutes later my face looked COMPLETELY orange!! I was so disappointed in the colour but I have to say that the coverage and feel of it on the skin is nice, pretty light. But the shades are just not true to their name although the powder is nice. Buy with caution.

I like this powder solely because it comes in Alabaster (C1). This strange shade is perfect for me if I want to match my skin, with its pinkish almost red undertones. According to others, I'm "ghostly" pale, and I have pink undertones. With pretty much every other drugstore line of foundations/powders, even the lightest shade available looks orange-y on me- I can always tell I'm wearing makeup when I put the others on. With the Alabaster shade available in this product line, I don't feel like I'm changing my skin color. I was using the liquid foundation, but have since switched to a mousse from a different brand. But, I still keep the Alabaster pressed powder around to finish my face with when necessary. I'll continue to buy it because it's affordable and proven to work with my coloring.

I bought this for on the go touch ups. I have this in W1 and the color is what I thought it'd be. The coverage is light and I wanted to like it, but there are a few problems.

As a setting powder, it doesn't keep my oily skin controlled. It's average in that department, for me.

It smells very chemical-y. I'm not typically sensitive to smells and the smell isn't very strong, but it is not a nice smell.

I hate the packaging. I hate, hate, hate powders with the thick compacts that have brushes and mirrors underneath the powder itself. Idk why so many companies are obsessed with this packaging design, but it's bulky and obnoxious.

Also, the powder has sparkles. Yeah, that's right. my friend pointed it out to me. She said "you look like Edward should have looked in the movies" That is, in fact, a Twilight movie reference.

I'll never buy this product again, but I'll keep it around cause you never know.
