Who knew I'd find what I've been looking for at the Estee Lauder counter?! Any dark-skinned African-American woman can attest to the extreme difficulty with finding makeup that doesn't turn ashy or gray on our skin. Well this is one. The shade Rich Mahgonay matches my skin tone perfectly; you literally can not see it on my skin. It also does not oxidize or turn dark. It's not …Read more

I bought this as a stopgap measure, it is never the best way to buy foundation but I really needed something and was limited to what the airport duty-free had to offer. Well.

It is not a bad powder foundation. The powder is smooth and gives good coverage, I would say medium. It is very matte and can look heavy – I think an exact colour match is really key with this product. This is …

This was a little pricey around the $40 range. Although, the quality of the product is amazing. It makes my face look super smooth and covers well. No complaints there. I would recommend this.

I didn't expected this powder as a pure powder WITHOUT foundation on it. I let the SA give some trial look, she put 1N1 (ivory nude) and 1N2 (ecru) on me; as you know the counter's light very bright so sometimes I wrong to pick the right shades; every SA always give me their lightest shades which I'm not match at all. The powder itself completely amazing; very smooth, very silky …Read more

When I was in London about six weeks ago I suddenly broke out really bad. Worst break-out in years, probably. So, short of a foundation (usually I just use a blotting powder), I went to an Estee Lauder counter & bought this on a whim. I remembered having the Double Wear Liquid foundation years ago which I was very happy with but I chose to go with the powder make-up this time instead …Read more

I recently purchased this in Cool Bone, the same shade of Double Wear liquid that I use every day. I was told by the assistant to buy the powder in the same shade, but this is NOT the same colour at all! As soon as I applied this powder over my foundation, it was a ghastly orange shade and I actually had to go and remove all of my makeup and start again. A very expensive mistake. I would …Read more

This is the best powder I've ever used. I've used it for many years, I always come back to it cause nothing can compare. It doesn't settle into fine lines or pores. It doesn't clog ur pores or make u break out. It's just amazing & I'll always buy it! Blows Mac's skin finish out of the water :D

I like this for when I can't be bothered to do a full foundation routine. I use it over top of liquid foundation to set it using either a powder brush or the smooth side of the sponge it comes with. I used it over my liquid foundation for my wedding and it lasted all day. It can build up a little around nose if I get sweaty but its not too bad. Great for touch ups during day and shine and …Read more

I found this powder to be quite good on its own for no makeup days.
