I tried all of the EDM primer/finishing powders and this one was no good. The colour was a pretty good match, but it couldn't absorb any oil.

Also, any dry patches was clearly highlighted by this powder.

Everytime I applied this to my extremely oily forehead I would get little crops of tiny bumps that were actually clogged pores. My skin does badly with products with any kind of organic ingredient - corn starch/zea mays and now also rice powder. Organic ingredients are food for bacteria, so if you have been bothered with or is currently struggling with acne (where the P. acnes bacteria …Read more

I have since moved on to Silk Naturals' foundation, but this Start to Finish Rice Powder Sunlight is the one EDM product that i will continue to buy. Its also the only full-sized product that I've used up completely.


I love the rice powder - it is very finely milled, and melds seamlessly into my skin over any foundation or base. The powder imparts a polished finish and …

I hate this as a finishing powder or primer. It doesn't even take the shine off my face, much less last for the rest of the day. Actually it doesn't do much at all for me except for lighten my foundation.

Edit: I started using this again in the winter and it works a little better now because I don't get as shiny. The staying power still sucks but I gave it one more …

I love this product! It makes my skin soft and I can wear it as primer, finishing powder or alone on a really causal day. I've been wearing mineral makeup for over 2 years and this is the most versatile product I’ve ever used. I have sampled and purchased many different products to do what this one product does. In all this time this is the first full size product that I actually need to …Read more

Wonderful idea....but that's about it. It really minimizes pores, but it is slightly irritating to my skin. It itches pretty bad.

I wanted to like this a lot, but unlike the other EM finishing powders, doesn't seem to do much for me. It seems to control oil well, but I'm naturally not too oily, so that problem never troubled me.
As for holding the makeup better--I think it does, but again I'm not sure. It's not dramatic change, with or without. I do love the idea of using organic rice as primer …

I really wanted to like this powder seeing as I really like EM's foundation, but after using it only a couple of times, I found that the powder made me break out. This only happened after I started using the powder under my foundation, and not over it has a finishing powder like it's intended to be used. When I used the powder over the foundation, I didn't really see much of a …Read more

I have the start to finish in fair and the start to t finish rice powder in sunlight. I really like the sunlight better than fair. For some reason the fair tends to add a pinkish tint to my skin or maybe the sunlight camouflages the pink in my skin. But I wear golden fair and the sunlight is great.

I can't tell if the rice powder is any better than the finishing dust as far as …

I have both the Start to Finish powder w/ kaolin clay and the Start to Finish Rice Powder. I like them both and can't really tell the difference between the two. I use this as a primer before applying my EDM foundation and afterwards as a loose powder. It makes my foundation go on smoother and last longer. Also, it keeps the shine at bay! Sunlight is the perfect color (I'm an NC35 in …Read more
