Left my hair dry as straw. I never saw my hair in such terrible condition... I normally have shiny, straight deep brown hair with decent volume. This thing left me with blotches of orange, which might've been my fault when I bought a light shade of blonde? But either way, it dried out my hair. Thumbs down, no repurchase, save your money and try something else.
Buy this product if you want the exact OPPOSITE of the name. This bright yellow (NOT invisible) shimmer thing does wonders to reveal any trace of oilies on my face. At the end of the day (after several touchups with this powder) I look like a gorgeous shiny, yellow cyborg!! After one time of powdering in the beginning of the day, naturally the oilies will start accumulating on my face as time goes by - and with the addition of this powder made the oilies 5x more noticeable! Ok, I'll stop being sarcastic. Bottom line - DO NOT BUY!!! Unless you're getting things ready to look like Metal Man for Halloween...
Made me look like I just dipped my face in a pile of beige chalk and walked out of the room (no matter whichever way I applied it - their applicator, my own sponges/cotton balls, powder brushes, etc... I gave this piece of expensive junk WAAY too many chances). Very, very bad. Then things get worse because within the next few hours, this makeup will literally look like a miniature re-enactment of a mudslide all over my face. My friends would ask me about what powder/foundation I use - I know, I know, you want to know so you won't get the same disaster! And it literally was - A DISASTER!! To add to things, I broke out in little white heads all over my face because of it. I dont know why, maybe because it was too d@m cakey (I could definately feel it like layer of dirt on my face. YUCK!) that blocks all my pores. THANKS, MAC!! NOT RECOMMENDED!!
Superb powder - light to mod coverage, sets foundation nicely, matte & natural finish. Only prob is the average oil control, but it is not bad. Love the sleek, thin package. Recommended! I keep going back to this powder, hard to find one that is as good as this!

Feels a little stickier than other powders. Not sure of the coverage, as I bought it to set foundation. Good powder, but I wouldn't say it's good enough for me to buy it again. Good color, but it seems as though it turns a tee bit darker as the day goes by. Not bad, but there are better out there.
If you want a BLUE FACE, buy it.
Awesome product - doesnt feel like you're wearing it at all, doesnt cake, remove oil - basically, everything you'd expect it to do from it's name/description. Reccommended! A little too expensive for me, so I'm consantly looking for alternatives.

It made me look like a silver man at the end of the day!!! This product has a fine shimmers, and after a whole day's touchup, i ended up with a shiny face + oiled, caked powder.
Good powder- medium coverage, blends nicely. I deducted a point because of the color choices - like the rest of CG products, it tends to be a bit too pink. I couldn't find a shade that would suit me (I have a neutral tone). Mayb you will have better luck if you have a warm or cool tone.
Good: color Bad: flakes & smudges (not long-wearing); it flakes all over my makeup and creates these unsightly little black specks across my cheeks (VERY annoying); smudges under my eyes (i only line the top); not too soft, so it skips, then breaks, then skips and breaks - better than some brands but ain't good enough - not reccommended!
