I bought this after being recommended by two nice MUAs here. I use medium beige which is the right shade for me during winter but I'll need to buy a darker shade during the summer. It does leave a hint of color on my face when I use it. I think this is better than my mineral veil from bare minerals since it does not look powdery. I do have to reapply it after few hours, I don't mind that. The applicator that came with it is basically useless, I use the mini compact brush that I got from a bare minerals compact travel case as a free gift. The bottom part of this compact where the mirror and the puff goes in, gets loose in time so it opens up and the brush falls out in my bag. I don't like that.
But, besides the packaging flaws, the product is great. I haven't had any breakouts from this (which is always a huge plus). It makes my skin look smooth but not dry and "matte" like the name of the product suggests. It leaves a satin finish. I would definitely buy this again.

-made my skin beautiful and smooth
-relatively inexpensive
-finely milled

-made me break out
-a little too matte, I like my skin to look a little dewy

I have to agree with PaolaheartsJB because the samething happened to me. If you have super sensitive skin I suggest you to skip this because your face will break out with little bumps that's are hard to get rid of. Its really sad because of all the positive reviews, but if you have tough skin than give it a try it might work for you. :)

I really enjoy the packaging of this product. It's a sturdy round case, the bottom part slides open to reveal a powder pad and a mirror. I got this for 40% off at walgreens. Tried it over mac foundation today for the first time. It looks and feel very light. The finish is so smooth. I love how my skin feels with this powder and this smoothness last quite a long time. The oil control power is pretty decent too compare to other products. I will defintely buy this again.

This product is great! I love it to set my foundation or to touch up with during the day. The packaging is a bit awkward though. One con is that the medium 2-2.5 is too light for my skin tone and i'm not even that dark. i am tempted to try the honey one, but im scared it will be too dark because anything 'honey' colored never matches me. anyways, this is a great powder for my horrendously oily skin!

I heard a lot of positive reviews from this product so I decided to try it out. I liked this product when I first put it on, but it did not control the oil on my face as well as the mac blot powder or the bare escentuals mineral veil.. Definitely not worth my money!

I'm not very impressed by this product. It has a lot of positive reviews, but to me this powder is quite average. It doesn't control oil that much, in the afternoon I need to reapply 3-4 times. Nice smooth finish after applying it in the morning, but after 2 or 3 times you apply, it it looks very cakey. Inconvenient packaging and a horrible sponge, if I can even call it a sponge, I need to use a brush.

Love this product, I will keep buying forever and ever.
I use this to set my foundation, and never really realized how beautiful the finish of this powder was until I decided to apply it more generously. The finish is matte but also has the effect making your skin look smooth and silky. I don't have to worry about the powder looking cakey at all no matter how much I apply and that's always a plus.

HG. It looks totally natural and gives a matte, slightly soft focus effect. I'm tremendously oily so my oil reappears after a few hours but I'm very pleased still because this is AMAZING at setting makeup. My undereye concealer always used to crease on me, before I used this powder. I used other powders in the past and it would crease, but with this I get no creasing. HG.

I've had this for awhile now. It does what the name says it'll do - reduce oiliness/shine. A bonus I wasn't expecting is that it reduces the look of pores on my nose. I bought the second lightest shade because I wanted to add some color to my face and it worked. =)

I don't mind the packaging, I treat it as a regular compact and flip the top open to get to the powder. I haven't used the mirror or puff that this comes with.
