Not sure about this one yet. It makes my skin feel a bit itchy - it does seem to hold concealer in place but I'm not sure it's HG level - I'd like to find something more silky and oil-absorbing in the future. Unfortunately, my Sephora was only selling this in full size or with a "kit" that included stuff I didn't want. I really hope I didn't waste $34 bucks on this. I will give it more time before pulling the plug, though. I also had to buy a kabuki brush to use with it, so double wastage if it doesn't do the trick :(

I'm starting to really dig this stuff. At first I think I was apply too much of the powder. I bought it for $15 at Sephora for the smaller, trial sized container. The packaging IMHO is pretty great. The sifter holes are really tiny, so it doesn't pour out like most loose powder containers. I use it as a finishing powder &honestly looks awesome. For some reason itiminimizes pores and my blemishes. I use it on my entire face with my bamboo powder brush from EM. I then take a fluffly eyeshadow brush and dust it over my eyeshadow and around my eyes. I would definitely buy this again. It's a bit pricey to me, but this tiny container has lasted 3 months and I still have some left.

Well aside from the fact that my skin reacted horribly to this (itchy teeny blisters wherever I apply it), I find the performance lacking. It doesn't keep oil at bay, you can totally tell it is white on the skin, and it doesn't make me look airbrushed. I am giving 2 lippies because it works GREAT to set concealer...kind of like powderflage but not quite as silky/fine. Luckily, I can use this under my eye area without reaction so I use it as a spare to my powderflage.

I REALLY wanted to like this product, I'd heard great things and figured I would pair it with the HD foundation I picked up.It does nothing for me. I try to use it as a setting powder, but instead of giving me a nice finish it makes my foundation look cakey and highlights flaky skin. I exfoliate/moisturize/prime my face and use a gel-based foundation so it's extremely frustrating to see flakiness. I've tried using different brushes and very small amounts, but nothing helps, I always get the same effect. I wish it hasn't been so long since I bought it, or else I would return it. I'll probably end up giving this away or throwing it out.

I really love this powder. I was wearing Bare Minerals Mineral Veil for the longest time, but it was starting to dry out my skin - so, I decided it was time for a change. I read some really good things about this product and decided to try it. I am so glad that I did. It sets my foundation and goes on nice and smooth. It's great for everyday use - and the best part about it is, a little goes a long way with this powder.I would highly recommend it for someone who is looking to give their makeup a more natural look. The other powders were making my face to heavy - this one goes on just right.

I used this for about a year and a half hoping it would do what it claimed, but no avavil. I have oily skin and even with a silicone primer, milk of magnesia, and revlon cs foundation, this didnt really get my makeup to last any longer or look any better, nor did it control oil that well. My face still gets oily within the same amount of time that it would without it. My maykeup doesnt look ne better, in fact it looks worse. I use this sparingly with a powder brush and only use it on my t-zone, but still, a ghost like appearance. I swapped it and will never buy again. Im sure there are better setting powders out there.

i love this stuff! yes, it does have a white cast on your face if you are being photographed, but, i do not worry about this everyday! if i were going out or to an event where i knew there would be photos taken of me, i would use something different. for everyday and normal use (i.e. not a super cool photo shoot or event) it works wonders for me! i love that it makes my pores seem smaller and blends in all my makeup and sets everything to a smooth and angelic looking finish..i use it with mufe mat velvet and i have used it with mufe hd and it looks great with both! the ma at sephora used it on me a while back and i got it like a couple months ago and i still have tons left...it doesnt take a lot to get the effects and i got the 15 dollar one (smaller one)! i havent tried many other setting powders so i cant say its better than another one, but it does a great job so i am very pleased with this purchase!

Beautiful smooth finish. Love this powder. But if you are going to be in any flash photography, DO NOT use this powder. I'm a makeup artist and I learned the hard way when I went to take a few snapshots of my work. White blotchy spots all over the face. For everyday use, this is great stuff. Use a different translucent powder (Kryolan makes a similar powder or I use MAC MSF in Natural) if you are in pics.

Great setting powder! Keeps my oils at bay and provides a nice even air brushed finish. I think for the size of the powder and the extremely tiny amount you need to achieve results, thirty dollars is a very reasonable price! You only need an amount that is less than half of a pinch to cover the entire face. I didn't find this messy at all. If you are finding this messy, you are using way too much. I just tap a tiny pinch in the cap and swirl a kabuki brush and tap excess off and buff the powder on to my face. No mess.

I only say I won't buy this again because E.L.F. has the same thing but it's only $3. Love to use this powder to set my Benefit Erase Paste for my undereye circles. Stays all day and doesn't get cakey or crease. Great stuff, and I would buy again if I hadn't found a dupe.
