This product does do exactly what it said it would. It blend it really well - it has decent amount of coverage and it goes on really well. BUT - it's definitely not for touch-ups. It oxidizes so much and easily turns your skin orange. It cakes and it makes your skin looks unatural. I WOULD buy this again in a lighter shade, just to re-try it out again. I would only use this to set my make up a little and layer a nice translucent over it. EH..

I Have this in W6 Sun Beige (I'm a pretty tan Asian so I decide to get it in warm for my undertone). I Bought it for Summer because I'm getting tanner again, but Geez, in the pan it looks Perfect for my skin color or maybe even lighter, in reality It's about maybe a shade or 2 darker then me and God its Sooooo Orange on top of that(But maybe its because I got it in a warm tone?). Although I have to admit I do like the texture though. The packaging is a little inconvenient considering the mirror is under the product. Would I recommend it, eh sure if the skin tone is good for you not in the color i got though, And would I buy again, NO. I don't want to chance getting the weird orange tone again, but if I did, I'd get the neutral kind.

There's nothing amazing about this product but it does the job. It matches my skin very well. I have pale skin and most powders are too dark for me, but the lightest shade of this powder matched my skin great. It lasts long but it's somewhat cakey. It covers, but it's obvious when you wear it. I had better powders that lasted long but looked more natural. What annoys me is the packinging. I really don't like the built-in mirror under the part with powder, it's not very convenient. This powder is not bad, it's worth buying if you like that made-up look that matches your skin.

I really love this powder. As a drug store powder goes, this is the best you can find in my opinion. I buy "soft ivory" and this is very good for my light skin that has a pink under tone. I usually find my skin colour hard to match, but this has it down to a pin point. This goes on very soft, matte, and covers up oils. I find that if I sweat from walking or something, I can just pat my face dry and the makeup stays on pretty great. I have been buying this for years, and will continue to. (Also, I'd just like to add that the sponge pad that comes with it for application is also extremely soft and good quality, although I use a powder brush usually.)

About my skin: oily, acne-prone, fair-medium (NC25, sometimes NC30, before been using NC20, which was way too light, anyway,), very,very yellow-toned.
A really good powder. A really, really good powder for me. It gives some extra coverage over my foundation, but at the same time it isn't cakey or chalky looking - just smooth AND matte, which with other powder happens... absolutely never. Anyway, for my oily skin I do have to touch every 3-4 hours, but it's definitely an improvement on some other powders I've tried.
Shades: a decent choice, here in the UK, but could've been better - I use W3 (golden beige) and colour-wise its okay, but still has a slightly pink tint to it, and looks more neutral than yellow-based, but it's nothing I can't work with. Definitely better choice than eg. maybelline, so good choice for both very pale, as well as dark tones.
Packaging: annoying as hell: when I lift the powder part to see the mirror I always end up with the powder part smashing me on the nose. Go figure. The puff/applicator or whatever the hell it was supposed to be, I found useless: a little bit messy and just of not very good quality. Still, I use a brush for my powder anyways, so I just binned the sponge thing. Not very good packaging, but I'm gonna put up with it for the product inside.
Staying power: pretty good, especially given my oil-slick skin. Stays on for 3-4 hours, 5-6 when using a primer. Mattifies well, but still gives a soft, almost satin finish.
Price: unbeatable. Really affordable, and really great at the same time.
I will keep repurchasing this powder till I die. I'm pretty sure it won't settle in fine lines and accentuate them (given the soft, wonderful finish), and it should also be suitable for normal and dry skin-types, definitely good for my oily skin. I know some oily skin people hate: for me it's an HG. I say try it: even if you hate you won't splash out a load of cash on something too crappy to use, because it's so cheap.

Really good everyday powder. I now use N1, I used to have it in C1 Alabaster but I discovered it's a little too pink for my face which is somewhat cool but mostly neutral. It has great colors for pale skin (thought the pink is very pink and the yellow very yellow), with nice light-medium coverage.

This is an amazing product! First let me tell u that I don't get oily anywhere but my nose that's the only place and I usually put this on over my liquid but one day I was in California and it was very hot and I forgot to use my powder and man was I oily! It was bad! but on the other day in Cali where I did use it my skin looked good!!! (plus I like this how it gives a little bit more coverage, and yes I do need coverage cause my cheeks are extremely red)
Pros: gives more coverage then with just a translucent powder, super creamy for a powder, didn't make me orange (which usually happens with drug store foundations and powders), even though this wasn't my exact match it blended to my skin tone perfectly.
Cons: The sponge sucks, I'm down to the last little bit and it's really hard to get the last bit out.

Okay, I love, love, love this powder. It applies very smooth. The texture is soft and light. It is the perfect finish after liquid foundation. It's not cakey or ashy at all! Best of all it was only $8.99. I admit I had been somewhat of a m/u snob only using MAC, NARs or Clinique, but I'm really liking this powder. It is a better color match for me than most HE brands. I got tired of trying to "make MAC work" for me. Most of thier shades are just a little off for my skintone, either a little too light or a little too dark or a little too red, etc. I use this in N7. I haven't found a shade match in the liquid. For reference in MAC I'm a NC45/NW43/C7 depending on what I'm using.

I got this product in C7 in Nut Brown because I wanted something to use my tinted moisturizer (CG Aqua Smoothers in medium to dark). So I wanted something with color in it to give me a bit more coverage that my tinted moisturizer provides. This was on sale so I grabbed that along with another L'Oreal product. I like this because it's light, as it says its pretty blendable and doesn't leave me feeling cakey or make my skin feel exceptionally dry which is a plus. It doesn't settle into my lines granted I don't have many but I like that it works with my face. Not many complaints with this, and I'd definitely grab it again especially if its one sale. Who doesn't love a sale?

I wanted to like this so badly. Its a pretty good price, I like the compact design, and the powder is soft and fine. But it turns really orange on me! Also, it wasn't the best powder I've tried for my oily skin.
