I'm on my third compact of this and so far have not found a powder that would work better for my oily/combo skin.
It is finely milled and translucent, though it does brighten the skin very slightly. It works for drier areas and you would get away with applying a bit too much. I do not have any flaky areas thanks to AHA so can't speak on this issue.
It is not going to eliminate …

I have mixed feelings about this finishing powder. It gets the work done, the powder is very soft and fine, and it controls my shiny areas pretty well. On the other hand, it doesn´t work well with certain foundations, making my face look super cakey and flaky. The packaging itself is cheap and a bit fragile. I will keep on using it but I am looking for a better option.

because of my dry skin, i was always scared to try these powders on my face, but i just fell in love with this one. it’s in my opinion for a very good price and lasts for months, it blurres out pores, and makes my skin look flawless (and works excellent under my eyes - my dark circles are scary, and this powder makes them a lot less noticeable)
it’s not drying out my skin at all and lasts …

This product was my first foray into pressed finishing powders, and y’know, it ain’t half-bad. It does a nice job of mattifying my skin and blurring pores, and paired with a good primer, that effect can last most of my work shift. But translucent (aka white) powders tend to make my already-pale skin look even paler since I really need to layer them on in the summer months when I’m oily. For that …Read more

I’m really impressed with nyx cosmetics overall. This reminds me of my Ben Nye banana powder but it seems more light weight not to mention it’s half the price. I will continue to repurchase. This is an everyday product for me

It's a pretty good, pretty cheap powder, which keeps my oils from breaking through slightly during the day, without making my skin overly dry right after application. I wouldn't call it completely translucent though; at least in the amount I apply this, it does lighten my foundation slightly though, and I'm only NC20. This powder is pretty fine, but I still prefer loose powder, as …Read more

This review is for the banana version.
I've tried the highly rated Ben Nye & was underwhelmed. This little baby is such a good find. It sets my makeup beautifully and somehow makes my skin look flawless. And wow does it control my oil! Finally a powder that really really makes my mu last all day - it's even better than my HG Laura Mercier that I've used for years. This is …

PROS
- Great oil control and blurring effect.
- Is translucent and doesn't make my skin look white
- Really smooth (not chalky)
- Great price

CONS
-No mirror or puff so not ideal for on-the-go touch ups.

Ugh, I'm still on the quest to find a good powder that keeps me matte for touch ups. I have only tried this as a touch up powder (blot powder) for 2 days - and my main disappointment is how no one has really mentioned that this stuff leaves your face WHITE. I barely powder some of this on with my ELF powder brush - and my face ends up looking paler, white, and chalky. I would not call this …Read more
