I bought this product after reading reviews on MUA. I was looking for a powder to set my makeup, make it last all day, without getting cakey or powdery looking.

I bought this powder in 'Golden Beige'. To me this powder seems transparent though, it doesnt change the colour of my foundation at all which is good. It cost me roughly 10euros which is good in comparison to other powders and due to the quality of the product.

The packaging looks a little cheap to be honest, but the mirror with the puff is a genius idea, i love it...its so handy.
As for the product itself....IM IN LOVE! It does what it says on the tin. It completely smooths out my skin, dimishing pores, leaving my skin super smooth, without looking powdery. The great thing i love about this too is the fact that my makeup stays on all day with this stuff over it. Its brilliant :) I can also reapply it a few hours later over my foundation and does not get cakey.

Best powder out there!

Love Love Love this powder i have been on a search for a good matte powder and i finally found it.This keeps my face matte all day without looking cakey which i hate.When i first bought it though i got the med color since im med skin tone but when i got home and used it i noticed it was to light for me so i took it back and had to get the darkest one which is honey or something like that the color looks so much darker in the package for some reason but it worked out fine for me..

This is an excellent setting powder. It really makes difference when you use it after your foundation. It gets rif of that faky foundation look. It looks natural afterwards. Also it does not interfere with your foundation color. Definitely Recommend it!

My favorite setting powder Ever!!!! It is the best powder for setting your foundation, doesn't give that cakey powdery look at all and it will keep your skin Matte all day. You can't beat this powder, it's the best!

I have been using this powder for years and I still love it. I tried other more expensive brands, but I always come back to this one. I don't usually need foundation, so for me, using this by itself is good enough. It evens out skin tone, mattifies shiny areas and gives a nice finish.

Since I have dry skin (very dry during winter, obviously), I do need to moisturize very well, otherwise, the powder makes those dry spots stand out. It doesn't stay on all day, especially on the shiny spots, so I usually need to reapply it, combined with blotting paper. I don't mind the packaging as some other people seem to. I think the puff that comes with it is actually quite decent too!

But i would definatly reconmend to use it just to fix your foundation ( it's not going to conceal anything) it works AMAZING for that ! Keeps you matte all day without looking caky!
I also already can see the pan of mine love it :)) & the packaging is really nice comes wiuth a mirrow and a puff ... PERFECT !!

This is one of the only products that I have ever bought a backup of. I alternate between this powder and L'Oreal True Match to set my Revlon Colorstay Foundation. It doesn't provide much coverage but it gives my face a great matte finish.

I actually really like this pressed powder, it does a decent job at keeping my face matte and doesnt make me break out as much as other powders have. I really havent tried any of the "fancy" stuff but until I do, i'm going to keeping using this powder. I really don't mind the swiviling bottom, the packaging is the least of my concerns, what matters to me is how the product works.

Within days of using this, my blackheads started showing up again and i started having this weird irritation on my weird little red bumps all over my face! Stay away from it if you have sensitive skin, it will irritate it and break you out.

It was too drying and no SPF. It does not work with my skin.
