I like how this mattifies my extremely oily skin and how the color is a true match to my skin. I love how the container includes a mirror and a sponge in a sleek design. This powder lasted longer than 6 hours without streaking, running, or disappearing. Unfortunately, that's where my compliments for this powder end. It left my face feeling like I was wearing a layer of something that was suffocating my pores. Looking in the mirror didn't show me that but I could feel it. I washed it off as soon as I got home from work. L'oreal will have to work on creating a powder that isn't so blendable that it actually feels like it's been sucked into your pores.

I bought this in n3. There were testers in the drugstore, so that was nice. The color matches my skin tone well. As someone else mentioned, there is a "hidden" compartment where a sponge & mirror is kept. It is not the best packaging, but I guess it will do. The sponge that it comes with is disgusting, however. It is not soft & feels very plasticy. I cannot imagine applying the powder with this sponge. I just use a brush instead. The smell of this product is not pleasant at all. Also, it may have caused me to break out. It is an ok product, I'm going to use it for a little mroe until I find another powder that I want to try.

This is a perfect color match for me. I use it in N2. This is a good powder and I carry it with me to touch up shiny spots during the day if i have any. I use the liquid in the mornings and this is nic to touch up with. It has a cool hidden place for the mirror and sponge and I didn't know that until after I'd already bought some other sponges... oh well. It's a good formula and a definite repurchase for me.

I bought this in neutral - classic ivory. I have combo skin and need t-zone oil control and this has worked very well for me. It doesn't cake up and it lasts longer than my previous HG powder, Maybelline shine free. It also doesn't look like I'm wearing powder which is a plus.I would definitely buy this again.

I bought the full size in this product because in the testers the texture was SO smooth! And it claims to totally match your skin, even has warm/cool/neutral categories. Being over 30 (okay, over 40) I need a silkier textured powder. Not sure which shade so bought 2 (Rite Aid will return with receipt). Well, it ended up BARELY adding anything on my skin, just literally was like adding NOTHING. I don't want heavy powder, but what's the point if it doesn't have any substance to it? And then I noticed my skin felt a little dry. Very disappointed in this product. Never have liked L'Oreal powders, guess will continue not to.

I really like this powder. I use Almay foundation with this powder on top and have had no problems with product turning orange on my skin. The powder applies nice and smoothly without looking chalky or dry on my face. It does give a bit of extra coverage over my foundation, which is a plus in my book. This is my new favorite powder!

This powder is only okay. I got this in W1 for my NC20 complexion. It's finely milled IMO and can be blended away if you apply too much. It controlled my oilies better than Stila IPF, but I'm not paticularly oily- just around my nose. This did not turn orange on me like the other reviewers said, don't know why. I wouldn't buy this again because I know that there are probably other powders out there that will give me a smoother look.

i got this in N4 buff beige at Eckerd for $9.99. not cheap at all. i give the price 2 lippies because it's almost $10 (well actually $10.85 NYC tax) the color matched my skin perfectly (the testers really helped)
/edit: had to throw it out. it turned absolutely gross on my skin. when i stepped outside and checked my mirror, my face was a completely different color! would NOT repurchase.

This stuff is absolutely horrible. I bought it in one of the "neutral" colors and my face turned red/orange in about an hour. WTH?!? I just bought it and can't wait to throw it away. It's seriously the worst powder I have ever used. My face turned into a gross, super greasy orange/red mess in less than an hour. My skin has never gotten this greasy in such a short time. In the garbage it goes!! Don't waste your money.

It looks like I'm in the minority here, but this is my favorite powder yet. I was lucky enough to be able to get a free full-size sample from work or I would have never even tried it after reading all the negative reviews here, but I honestly believe that this is the smoothest, lightest powder I have ever applied. I suppose I must be one of the few that it doesn't leave an orange finish on! It honestly doesn't even look like I'm wearing anything -- or even feel like I am! My only complaint is the sponge applicator that comes with it - ugh. I had to buy a different one to apply it with, so one lippie off for that.

I am in the minority here but I like this powder. I don't normally like or use pressed powder but have only recently changed my mind. I find it is easier to carry and use with a big powder brush than loose powder. This powder matches my skin very well and is undetectable...and I use a darker shade since I self-tan. I like the quality of the powder (very soft) and the color has not turned orange. I like that it doesn't look chalky or masky but does look natural. My experience has been positive.

I also got suckered in to buying this product based on the testers. I gave the tester powders a swipe and instantly fell in love with the silky/smooth texture. I also noticed that it seemed to provide pretty decent coverage. I snooped around the display until I found a shade that matched my skin. It seemed to match perfectly based on the tester.
Well, I couldn't wait to try it when I got it home. What a disappointment! The powder in the actual compact feels much drier and grainier than the testers. The second disappointing surprise was the coverage - or should I say, lack of it. This did absolutely nothing for my skin. It didn't even tone down shine. Finally after about 30 minutes of wear I also noticed that it discolored on my skin. IT turned a very strange shade of pinky/orange. I've never had a problem before with powders changing color on my skin. This is the only time it's happened.
Luckily I saved my receipt so I can return it. Back to CVS it goes! Save your money, ladies. There are much better drugstore powders out there.

Can we say "orange"?
I thought we could. I bought N1, and it's at least three shades too dark for me. It was terrible. A shame, because I did like the compact. I only used it twice; I gave it to a coworker with darker skin than mine, and she seems to like it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Red Eyes: Brown
I like the texture of this powder, but I have to agree with others: it looks WAY TOO ORANGE once on! I tried N1 (Soft Ivory) - it's the lightest shade available, and is still way too dark for me! Did I mention ORANGE??

the first time i saw this , i was with my friend. i saw the sampling template, and was obsessed!!! i kept walking by it, and bugging my friend about it, but it was too much money. Then i saw a buy one get one free deal, and even after reading the reviews on how it makes ur face orange, I decided to try it, and boy were they right. i think if ur face is without any moisturizer or foundation, it might be ok, and not so orangey, but watch out if ur face has the liquid base, because it wont look pretty. texture is definitely not like the samples, but its ok. Coverage is medium. I agree with the review that said to get 2 shades lighter than what u think you should get.

I love the True Match liquid, and I am an exact W4. To get an exact matching shade from a drugstore is exciting stuff, so I was REALLY excited to see the powder and the cnocealer in this line. Wrong! This is DEFINITELY not true match at all, because the W4 powder made me look like I had an orange mask on. I love the finely milled texture and sanitary packaging (mirror and sponge in separate compartment at the bottom), but since this line touts itself as a exact color match line, this powder line has failed.
I tried W3 and it's a bit better, but still too dark. Maybe you should go two shades below your liquid color, and it'll be ok. If you can get the color right, the texture is beautiful--it's not powdery or cakey, and makes your skin look very pretty. Good luck with this product. The concealer, on the other hand, works beautifully and the colors are great, also.

I second the orange thing!!!! I wear N1. Love the foundation, and I actually liked the texture of the powder, but the pretty pale shade in the compant turned fake-tan orange when it hit my face!!

i was suckered into buying this by the display testers. the texture seemed so creamy soft, and the color was a perfect match. so i purchased the second lightest color in the warm series (W2, light ivory). first of all, the texture of the actual product is completely different from the texture of the testers; it's not nearly so soft and fine. however, the main problem i had with this powder was the fact that it somehow morphed into an *orange* color when applied! in the package, the color looks like a perfect match for my light asian coloring. when i dusted it on lightly with a powder brush, it somehow managed to make my face look orange. not quite oompha-loompha orange but still not desirable and most certainly not a "true match". so this piece of crap is going into the trashcan.

I got this for less than $9 at Target in the color Classic Tan/N7. The packaging looks super cheap (which it is), but the powder inside is really good quality. This powder is "very" finely milled and reminds me of DiorSkin compact powder. It goes on velvety sheer with light to medium coverage and makes my skin look very glowy. It's winter time here in Vegas, so this powder works nicely with the cold dry climate. I have been using this for low maintenance days when I don't feel like using my expensive stuff. However, come summer, this powder will probably melt off my face like DiorSkin did in the heat. The best thing about this true match super blendable press powder is that if you get the right color match, it's nearly undetectable! UPDATE: I think I need a different color because this seems to oxidize really bad (turn orange) and has no oil control whatsoever.

Purchased this along with the matching liquid Foundation and I am loving both of them!
This powder matches the tones in my face (I am W2) which I couldn't get with Revlon's colorstay. Either too orange or too white!!
Also, this powder is nice and sheer, so you can build it up without it getting all cakey.
I was bummed out at first, thinking there was no puff-but open up the bottom and there is a sponge and a mirror. Very cool.
