I do quite like this one, I purchased in translucent as i'm NC20. Packaging looks luxurious, but I never got round to using the puff as it was too big and bulky for my face. I bought the XL size,...

I received this as a birthday gift and I love it. It is very finely milled and goes on very smoothly with a good powder brush. It does not require much and removes any shine without looking chalky....

This is a really cheap powder. The texture is too thick and chalky. It settles into my large pores, enhancing them not diminishing them like other setting powders I have used. I love iT cosmetics...

I was very impressed when I received a trial size of Laura Mercier’s “Translucent Loose Setting Powder.” I’m very pale so it can be hard to find a powder that is light enough for my skin. I found...

I love this for setting my makeup as well as for baking. Knocked off a lippie because the ingredients are horrible and I'm looking for an alternative to this powder that doesn't contain talc.

This powder is amazing. Has no scent, no white/ashy color, but it does look cakey sometimes. Whenever I use a brush, it turns out to be cakey and blotchy. I highly recommend using their Velvour...

By far my favorite makeup setting powder. It's super fine so it doesn't get patchy. It's perfect for under eye and full face. Works great on top of a wide range of foundations and concealers.
