I purchased this powder at a makeup show for pros while attending beauty school. It was one of the holy grail products I discovered as I was researching items (most coveted) to buy at the show. I've used it long enough (several times over the course of a year) to come to the conclusion that it's not for me. It's supposed to be translucent over makeup but for a caramel complexion like mine, it does show up as a slightly white cast which requires a lot of blending with a fluffy brush to eliminate. Also, the deal breaker for me were the breakouts that slowly showed up after each use. I didn't immediately connect it to this powder but after spot testing certain spots that would always result in a pimple forming, I knew it was an ingredient in this causing it. Once I stopped use, the breakouts cleared up. It did help keep my skin matte & makeup in place but not enough to suffer breakouts so I won't buy again.

I have really come to love this powder. It is a pressed version of an HD powder (think of MUFE) but since in a cake form it is not nearly as messy which makes it much easier to control the coverage. I simply apply it with the enclosed circular sponge, pressing firmly - not swiping on the skin - and then dust on lightly again in a downward direction with a big, fluffy kabuki powder brush. It gives a wonderful, natural effect. The oil absorption properties are not that good, but I can easily use blotting papers to bring it back to a soft, matte finish. And it never cakes on my skin! After about 2 months of use, I have had no breakouts. Price is good (~$14), and the mirrored compact, while not glamorous, is sturdy and slim, which I appreciate. Kett products do not disappoint. The only consideration may be use on darker skin tones, not certain if it would look ashy or grey in these situations since it is pure white coming out of the pan, and somewhat the same on the skin until it is pressed in.

Was fortunate to be introduced to this at IMATS. Its so great, mattifies, does not destroy the coverage that foundation provides, does not go all over the place like loose powder, makes my make up withstand about 10-12 hours of New York weather and wear on my oily t zone. Zero texture or coverage, just mattifier. Must be patted on, not brushed on.

A truly matte, invisible, unchalky and silky soft finishing powder compact. I carry this with me always. Ideally I use a powder brush and press on my T-zone but if my purse is small, a flat powder puff gently rolled does the trick. Instantly mattifies without deadening the skin, feels soft and natural (not drying at all) and there is zero white coloring on my medium tan Asian NC30 skin. This is far better for my skin and combo complexion than MUFE HD powder. It also shoots beautifully and is going into my wedding day clutch. Love it.

Best best BEST setting powder ever! There's really nothing else to say about this product. I purchase this product online because I have been unable to find this locally. I was introduced this product by a good friend/Mua and I'm so happy he showed me this product. It's not like the mufe hd powder, this powder does not give me or my client any kind of flash back on photos. I apply just to set and then go over with colored powders and etc.
