I own both pressed and loose powder versions of this. I initially thought it would be perfect, as in HG, for setting under eye concealer. It isn't for me! It looks okay at first for a bit, but then it turns ghostly pale white and gritty feeling under my eyes! However, this is perfect for setting makeup or just using in the t-zone area. It really does help control oil and shine. I tried this as a primer, but I prefer the other TF Primed & Poreless for actual primer. This is very, very finely milled. So if you get too much on your powder brush, it just clouds up the air! I have found that using a regular wedge sponge or powderpuff tapped lightly onto the product and then pressed onto the area of skin is best. Then take your powder brush and dust off the excess product. IMO, the formula is the same in both versions, it's just if you prefer loose vs compact, and taking traveling into consideration. Overall, this is a great setting powder, great for controlling oil and shine, and great for those who have dry skin and don't like to cake on setting powder. I would recommend and repurchase.

This is a great powder, it's very thin and makes me skin looks really poreless! . The only thing I don't really like it's the fact that is a loose powder which sometimes makes a messy aplication ( at least for me) . I'ts hard to control the amount of product I put in my face, there are times when I apply way too much which leaves my face veryy white ! I wouldn't say it's traslucent, sometimes I find my face very pale when I use this

This review is for the pressed powder that comes in a compact.

I have finally found the perfect sheer powder! It makes my skin look so smooth and poreless and it truly lives up to its name. I wear this on a daily basis on bare skin with some concealer here and there and it's perfect for that purpose. It keeps my skin matte and it is long-wearing. It does not leave a whitish tint or make my dark skin look ghostly at all. I love it. I also use it as a setting powder over foundation and it looks like perfection. It has not caused any sort of irritation, itchiness, or acne on my sensitive skin. It does not contain Bismuth Oxychloride for anyone who's wondering.

I have tried several sheer powders such as Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, Rimmel Stay Matte, Neutrogena shine control powder, and Black Opal Invisible oil blocking powder and Too Faced blows them all away.

This product does what it says, well. I have normal to combination skin. I like using luminous foundation but I have larger pores in my T-Zone. I hate silicone primers and balms that fill in pores. I don't eat guacamole for the same reason, the texture bothers me. This product does the job of cone primers without the unpleasant texture. I just use it in my T-Zone letting the rest of my face glow. I do have a little intel though. I have been to 3 Ulta locations in the last week and not a one had this product in stock. I asked the clerk if the product was just popular and she said that they just had not received inventory. It may be discontinued soon so stock up if you like it. That does seem to be my luck. A lot of products that work well for me do get discontinued.

HOLY freaking GRAIL, people. This is the best powder I have ever used on my oily, overly sensitive, acne-prone skin. It doesn't break me out and it controls shine ALL DAY (12hrs). At about the halfway mark (6-8hrs) I begin to notice a bit of shine peeking through, but it doesn't look like an oily mess; rather, it looks like a natural, dewy complexion. Also, I live in Florida ... it's seriously 88°F with 100% humidity in January right now! I don't really notice that it minimizes my pores too drastically or even creates an airbrushed appearance. My skin just has a healthy, matte complexion when I use this. I apply a very light dusting with a large, fluffy powder brush or stippling brush using a dabbing/patting motion rather than buffing/rubbing. CONS: Packaging! Horrible, horrible, horrible.

This is great for oily skin. It controls oils all day long and also makes skin look smooth. My skin is extremely oily so I do reapply a TINY amount towards the end of the day. A very small amount of this goes a long way. I've had the same container for about a year now. I sometimes use to prime before makeup which works well but I primarily use it as a setting powder which is what I feel it's best at. The only problem is the container itself, it doesn't screw closed easily and it's very annoying to me. But other than that, this is great especially for oily skin.

I love this finishing powder. It is the best! Gives my oily skin a smooth soft finish. Minimizes my large pores and controls oil. I like to apply this with my elf stippling brush.

This multi-purpose powder is all you will ever need for priming, perfecting, and finishing a look. Not only do I prime with this, but I also use it to smooth out my foundation after application. Be wary, however, those with dry skin, as this can seek through the cracks and make your skin look like a desert.
