Let me start off by saying, this powder is NOT meant for baking with. It is a finishing powder, I use a light dusting of it all over my face and particularly on the places where I apply concealer (under eyes) and it helps my makeup last longer but most importantly prevents creasing and helps with oil control. My skin gets oily very easily and I find that this helps keep my skin matte throughout …Read more

When I first got this powder I tried applying this straight on top of my foundation and it ended up looking mega white in patches which showed up in photo's and different lightings. It also made my foundation transparent which was not good. So my advice is dont use as a setting powder if you use a dewy liquid foundation like I do. But I found this to be an excellent powder for putting on top …Read more

I wanted to love this. Honestly, I'm getting ready to go to Asia for 2 weeks this fall with my husband, and I bought this because I wanted to save some money (rather than re-upping on my trusty Makeup Forever). Eeek. I don't even have particularly dry skin, and this stuff is a dumpster fire. In an effort to give some perspective -- I moisturize as part of my cleansing routine, I …Read more

The powder has a little bit of a smell, not much though. It’s only bad if you accidentally inhale a large amount through your nose.
The powder has some flashback, and if you turn your face a certain way, it becomes flashback Mary. If you use it in light dustings it’s not too bad, but there’s still that “flashback”.

It also sticks. Like I’ll be brushing away the powder after a …

This is a FINISHING powder. Not a setting powder. Those saying not to bake with this are clueless. Finishing powders are not meant to bake with and set foundation. Finishing powders are meant to FINISHING your makeup. A light dusting at the very end. Use a SETTING powder to set with. Educate yourselves before leaving cap reviews.
When used properly there is no flashback. Nice silky texture.

Second Update 2018----
I have a ton of drugstore powders and this is my favorite one for setting. I love using it with matte foundations because silica is super absorbent allowing me to quickly set areas with concealer using a small amount of product on a brush (I use the Elf Blush brush). Whatever is left on the brush I distribute on the rest of the face. In this small amount, it's …

Feels nice on the face, easy to apply but gives a horrible flashback. Never bake with it.

I want to love this product. When applied the powder to my foundation as the last step, it really helps smooth out my skin. However, during application with a big dome brush, the powder falls off everywhere: my table, my shirt, the floor,... Also, the powder evaporate and i inhale it (because I applied it on to my face) and that is not pleasant at all.
