So far this is my favorite translucent powder. I don't see much difference when I wear it as a primer, but I like it as a finishing powder. It doesn't make my face look super matte and dry which I like. I wouldn't say it makes you look poreless, but it gives a nice veil over the face without making you look powdery and dry. It helps my makeup stay set for about 6-8 hours which has been typical of every powder I've tried. Overall, I'm happy with this powder mostly because it's translucent and it doesn't make my pores or peach fuzz stand out. Just wish the price wasn't so high.

I'm updating this review because I'm not as happy with it as I was in the beginning. I love that it is translucent so it matches all skin tones. The coverage is great. I will not repurchase it again due to how messy and difficult the packaging is. I couldn't understand why less and less powder was coming out. I figured out that the holes were plugged up so i had to repoke them and then it came out fine. It gets everywhere though and that is a deal breaker for me. I will purchase this in the pressed powder though, because the product is great. It can be used as a primer and as a finishing powder. I just use it as a finishing powder because I don't have a lot of time to clean up the mess on my counter. I don't have large pores but I love the veil effect when I use it over my Too Faced Born This Way foundation. So I would recommend this product but don't get it in the loose powder, go for the pressed powder.

Best finishing powder I've ever used. No powder can keep my super oily skin at bay as long as this. Usually my oils peek through after about 4 hours but this powder doubles the longevity of my makeup. It also gives your skin a flawless look. Will buy again and again, definitely worth the money!

I am a bit of a stickler when it comes to my makeup because I have acne-prone skin. I only use ingredients that are non-comedogenic and safe. Primed and Poreless by Too Faced is the best loose powder setter you can find! I searched for hours and ran across this one online. I would definitely recommend this powder for any skin type especially those with textured skin.

This powder isn't "holy grail" worthy in my book yet I actually like this product. The biggest cons I found were that it is pretty $$$$$ for such a small amount and I wish I could still find the loose powder version of it. There's also tocopheryl acetate on the ingredient list, but the content has been low enough to not break me out. Other than that, I have some nice things to say.

This is one of the few powders at Sephora I've found that do a decent job at keeping my oil at bay. Talc seems to keep my pizza-face more matte than anything. Unfortunately (or lucky for my wallet?) silica seems to be the prized oil absorber of $$$$$ products while talc is more commonly found in drugstore powders. This has talc as the main ingredient...followed by silica. It's a win-win for everyone.

I also like that this powder is not stark white, yet it is pale enough to not darken my foundation. The color of the powder itself is as pale as me (NC10 in MAC terms). But it doesn't offer much coverage so do not worry too much if you are tan.

Not for me. First, the smell is strange and I would hold my breath when I applied this. It did not make my makeup last longer and I still got oily with this.

I've tried hard to like this powder, but I just don't. For me, it did the exact opposite of what it claims. It settles into my pores worse than any powder I've used. Ever. It was also too drying for my combination skin. I should mention that I do have complicated skin w/ large pores and quite a few acne scars. I can maybe see this working for someone without large pores, but thats the MO of this powder. This Too Faced product was a huge let down, especially for the price.

I have very normal skin, not oily, not dry, no acne, no scarring and no redness but I love this product! I finally made the leap in spending the money for this powder and have not looked back. I am so glad I treated myself. I generally don't spend money on powder or even wear it hardly because I don't like a matte face. This is very versatile.. I can wear it to were it does not make me matte on a daily basis but on the occasion I want to build it up with an extra layer it does the job. I bought it mainly to airbrush my pores and make my skin look flawless and that it does. I use it in combo with a pore minimizing primer because I don't like using this a primer (too matte). It goes on completely transparent and does not change the color of my foundation or move my makeup at all. I don't think it lasts all day, I bring it with me to touch half way through the day but I'm fine with that. My bronzers, blush and highlight sit very well on top and they look gorgeous together! I think it's worth the splurge.

The worst primer I've ever used! This makes my skin look verry cakey and does nothing to my pores. I have very minimal pores too ! I've tried to make it work because of the good reviews I've read but I just hate this product
