This product is overpriced at $10.97 from Walmart, in my opinion. I prefer my powders to be pressed as they are less messy and you can control the amount better, and I also like them super fine. While this is pressed, it's heavier than a super fine powder. Also, the packaging is a bit ridiculous. It has two openings, one on the top and the other on the bottom where there is a mirror and a compartment with a circular sponge applicator. I cannot imagine using this applicator to apply a powder, so it is I no use to me. There is no point to not just have the mirror built into the top lid. The container is pretty strong and the lid dosn't become loose. I would not repurchase this product.

Most days I wear liquid foundation but some days I'm in a rush or don't feel like spending the time to blend and set my liquid foundations and its nice to wear a powder foundation for a change. I've tried quite a few in my day, did the Bare Minerals thing and it made me breakout like mad, also tried neutrogena mineral sheers but that made me breakout as well, I love the Loreal crayon concealer and the true match original foundation so I figured I'd give the powder a go. Really nice stuff! Decent coverage, evened out my skin-tone, if you have lots of acne or hyper pigmentation it might be enough for you but I have decent skin. The color selection is great. They had lots of colors and I didn't have a hard time finding my shade. The texture of the powder is much smoother than lots of other powders I have tried. It's not ashy or cakey. Very smooth and soft. Easy to blend into the skin. The price was 8 bucks at target, far cry from the 30 dollar bare minerals that gave me pimples. Its great for the days Im in a rush and just need to look alive in the morning. OH yea and NO BREAKOUTS. Will definitely repurchase.

I prefer to use powders rather thank liquid, cream or mousse foundations. So I have been on the hunt for just the right powder. I try to keep my collection mostly cruelty free so I normally wouldn't buy a L'Oreal product but I've also been researching on the Skin Deep Database and discovered that many of the products I did love, although they were cruelty free, they were also high on the toxic list. This product was low at a 2 (0-2 is low tox). The product is finely milled and silky to the touch. Using this powder as a foundation provided pretty good coverage. I got this in shade C1 Alabaster...and it was not light enough for me. I am like a china doll of paleness. You can't just lighten up a powder to match you like you can a liquid foundation sadly. I was not happy that after using the product a handful of times I could already see the outline of the the rings of the pan through the powder! I hadn't used it but 4-5 times!! This powder cost me $11.99 and I was flying through it...that is a huge con for me. There is 0.33 oz of product in the compact (which is about average) but I seem to go through this one fast than the others. If you can find this for a reasonable price somewhere, in your shade, I think it's a good buy. But for me, I probably wont be repurchasing this.

Overall, this product, for me, is relatively good. It doesn't cake up my face and is probably the closest powder to matching my skin tone I have ever used. I have not tried the foundation that goes with this, but I do like the powder and currently on my second package. Highly recommended! :)

I bought the 4.5 shade in liquid, so I thought of matching the powder.
This compact has sheer to medium coverage, absorbs most oil. Fine texture.
What I hate about this is it oxidizes quickly into an orange hue. Gives me a weird fake tan look.

Even though this powder received fairly good reviews, it is not right for me. I bought it in C3 (which is a perfect match for my skin initially, but this shade turned very orange on my skin, even when it wasn't worn over foundation or sunscreen). Perhaps a lighter shade would be better, but I don't like it enough to purchase a paler shade in the hope that I can find a better match.
The packaging looks and feels cheap, and is essentially useless. The mirror in the compact is smeary with this powder from the applicator and looks dirty.
This powder left my skin looking very matte, highlighted lines and pores, and left me looking orange. The powder itself is not very finely milled especially when compared to other brands. In addition the smell from this powder was nauseating to me. Perhaps I had a bad batch, but my powder smells like some ingredient in it has decayed.
Not something that I will be purchasing again.

This powder is a superblendable powder. I use c6 in cool tan. Its a little to dark for me right now sinceits winter. The texture is not chalky. Its very fine. Also the finish is natural. After applying this powder spray mac fix plus and the powder looks like skin. I tried fix plus over relvon nearly naked powder and it just didnt have a natural finish as loreal true match powder. I do not think the sponge applicator works well with the powder. Its better to use a powder brush with a flat top. The kubuki works well with this powder as well. The packaging is nice it comes with a little mirror. The price is okay only because 10 or 11 bucks seems cheap to me. Some may think its pricey. It depends. I think its worth 10.

Best powder I've ever used. It really is super blendable and smooth. Makes my skin look soft instead of cakey. I completely guessed on the color but it turned out to match my skin perfectly. I love this so much

Love this powder!!! I have it in W6 sun beige and it is a perfect match! This is excellent for controlling oil and leaves me with such a polished finish. I apply concealer to my red spots/blemishes and put this over it and it looks practically flawless. This powder is also good as an undereye concealer because it covers redness/circles around eyes and minimizes puffiness. Also, it will keep your eyeliner from smearing. I don't find myself having to re-apply often because it looks good for hours. P.S. I love the way it smells. In Mac, i am NC42 and in revlon CS, I wear golden caramel (360) and like I said, w6 is a great match. Recommend and would repurchase.

I use this as a powder foundation after applying concealer under my eyes and to my acne and acne scars. Evens out skin tone, looks nice and polished without looking too makeup-y. My only gripe with this is that it doesn't really control oil but it's better with a primer/makeup setting spray. I don't think this is a miracle product by any means, but it matches me well (and will match a lot of people because of the large color selection), covers nicely, and is a fast and easy way to look nice in the morning. If you want more coverage, apply with the $3 ELF powder brush. Will repurchase unless I found a better drugstore powder foundation.
