Not very impressed, felt heavy and cakey. Made my face look pretty orange, with the palest shade of W1 Ivory. Made my skin feel really dry and breakout in spots. Also not a fan of the packaging with the concealed mirror.

I've had this for about 2 years and I still love it! I have pretty clear skin and this just gives my skin a nice and even finish. I don't use foundation so after I put on moisturizer I just put this on and I'm good to go.

I used to use this powder a long time ago. What I remember is that it gave even coverage & color. I also liked the consistency. It is almost like liquid foundation mixed with powder. It's creamy, but powdery at the same time. I think it works very well that way. Kind of reminds me of studio fix by Mac (same consistency). I don't use this powder anymore, but it is a cheaper alternative to more expensive powders. One thing I noticed is that this powder occasionally broke me out. For that reason, I do not reccommend for sensitive skin. Other than that, good powder. Oh, & it blends pretty well...so it lives up to its name:)

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.
