I was looking for a face powder and got this in N3. I like the finely milled texture of the powder. The color was too peachy and it turned orange as the day progressed. Tried again another day and the same thing happened. I had hoped the neutrals would have beige undertones. I tried the warm shades previously but they were too yellow--I look jaundiced. I had to return this to CVS as it didn't work for me.

This powder is ok. I use the True Match foundation and blush as well, and the powder is my least favorite. I still use it though.
I think it's pretty blendable, and the color is nice (N2), but it feels heavy. And it doesn't take long for my skin to get shiny. I don't like the packaging (the mirror on the bottom of the compact is supposed to be...unique? I don't get it and I don't like it. It's hard to use).
I prefer Neutrogena, but I don't hate this.

Loreal foundations are either lighter or darker than my skin tone, I don't have an exact match. I don't like this powder formula because it makes my skin oilier and it feels thick and heavy. Right after application, my skin feels sticky, I dunno why. The liquid formula doesn't have that same effect.

Had this powder in shade W7 more than a year but I think the color is a bit too pink on my NC40 skin. I tried it first in Sweden during winter NC37, it would just not work, I thought I was too pale. But now I'm NC40 and it's still just a tad too pink on me.
It has a very silky,smooth texture which I love..but also an obvious smell. My face doesn't like its products to be strong fragranced so this turned me off a bit. Coverage is quite good I must say, but If you put too much on it will look cakey. It mattifies the oil in your face at first, but not for long, requires touch ups. Packaging is a bit blaah.
I want to try this in another shade cause I do like the texture and finish that it gives.

Hmm, I just got this today as an impulse buy. Quite frankly I needed something to wear on my lazy days, such as today. I just put some of my Boots No. 7 Softn and Sheer Tinted Moisturizer and used this to set it. It's ok, not the best. Ok coverage I guess, but what I am looking for is more of a full coverage pressed powder foundation....nope mac doesnt work. Any suggestions?

Possible one of the worst powder foundations I have tried. I have had this powder in my make up drawer for a couple years now and used it only once in awhile. I've been starting to use it so I can just get rid of it, and I don't like it at all. My skin is very oily. I press on this powder with a flat top ELF brush below my eyes over my concealer and my tzone area. It doesn't help control oil what so ever but it's probably just not a good powder for oily skin. The color does match me perferct however, and the coverage is ok but the lasting power is bad. Will not repurchase, I will probably just throw it away.

Broke me out!!!!! terribly and in less than 2 hours... it may have been an allergy.
Sucks so bad because It was very good.

I have yellow undertones which makes it a challenge with powders. Sometimes a ashy appearance. In Mac I am between NC44-NC45. True match powder I have w7and w6. I primarily use w7. I can use them as foundation when my skin is clear but when I have acne flares its just setting powder. I have better results with a puff opposed to the sponge in the case. I wish it had more coverage. But I like it.

I LOVE THIS! I either use this over concealer when I'm being lazy or setting my liquid foundation and it makes my skin feel so nice and keeps my oil out through the day! I love this and I am in W4 natural beige and actually like the smell weirdly. (:

First thing you need to know, is that I didn't bought this powder to use as a foundation but as a setting powder.
It was great as a setting powder. It kept the shine away during almost my whole day and it didn't look blotchy when apllied in a thin layer. It gave me some extra coverage on top of my medium coverage foundation which was a great bonus.
The packaging wasn't my thing. I liked the mirror and the spunge came in handy sometimes. But mine broke quite easily into three pieces.
But when applied as a foundation on its own, I don't like this product.
It was really sheer when I apllied one thin layer. When I tried to build it up, it started giving a grey sheen to my face in daylight. It looked kind of chalky too.
I think this makes a perfect setting powder if they have your shade. But even if it's just a bit too dark, don't buy it or go a shade lighter because it tends to go a tad bit darker during the day (not noticable when you're exactly the same shade). Probably because it starts to react with the oils of my skin.
As a foundation I really wouldn't recommend this, there are better powder foundations out there.
