This is amazing, both in terms of performance and price point. It's finely milled and a translucent white colour, so provided I'm not too heavy-handed with it, it sets cream or liquid foundations well without an obvious powdery finish. Perfect for mattifying without completely hiding the base under powder - so for glowy/dewy make-up, that sheen is still visible but like it's got a translucent veil over it. Used with a puff it can look too much of a stark white colour as the puff picks up and deposits too much - it leaves a cast if there's lots on the face. With a soft and fluffy brush, it blends and spreads easily with a silky quality to it and, so long as you don't load the brush with tons of it, doesn't leave an obvious white cast. The packaging isn't great, however - lots of powder will get into the space below the lid easily and if I'm not careful, it can get everywhere when I open the lid. It doesn't come with a puff inside - probably because it goes on too heavy using one - but I've ended up putting one in there anyway just to keep it from making a mess when I come to use it. The holes beneath it are too wide for such a finely milled powder as it does float around a lot, so the puff helps keep more of it in the compartment underneath. However, I can live with bad packaging so long as the product is good, and this one definitely is. Just be sure to use it sparingly - a little goes a long way.

This powder works wonders when it comes to setting your face. It doesn't provide an ashy flashback (at least for me, a person with a medium deep skin tone). A light dusting is all you need and your makeup will stay put (for the most part). It might transfer if you are a bit oily skinned. Overall a good setting/finishing powder.

Pros:-It does mattify and prolong foundation wear-does somewhat blur imperfections-prevents creasing pretty well (I use it in the under eye area as well, and I apply it with a brush)-gives a natural finish, not excessively matte-for me it prevents foundation from oxidizing, and lightens it up ever so slightly, which I like because I have very pale skin and any bit of oxidation shows like crazyCons:- a lot more product could fit in that packaging- the packaging makes it impossible to transport, it flies away and gets everywhere unless I shove a tiny powder puff in between the lid and the jar, but product still gets wasted- also flies and spreads everywhere when you try to shake a little powder into the lid, again there's a lot of product that gets wasted- quite pricey

This works really well. You don't have to use a lot and you get a lot of product. I also use it in combination with the setting spray for extra makeup staying power.

Update 2017:I can use this just fine as a FINISHING powder to take shine away slightly by sweeping a small amount of it on my t-zone and under eye or all over. NO BAKING. You can't pack this silica powder on because translucent doesn't mean invisible. If you pack it on your makeup will look dull and ashy, and I imagine you will also get an ugly flashback in pictures. Used sparingly it doesn't break me out and doesn't add a lot of texture to my makeup. I don't think it blurs anything, which is why I give it an average rating.

I really like this powder. As in all of my reviews, I like to state that I wear minimal makeup. That is one of the reasons I enjoy this powder so much. All I wear for face makeup is primer, concealer and this powder. I use it to set my concealer, and it works very well for that. My under eye concealer does not crease for 12+ hours. Since I only wear minimal makeup, this is a wonderful product for my needs. I am always on the hunt for products that can blur, fill in pores, and leave me with a beautiful finish without adding layers of texture to my already textured skin. This product does all the above. I love how lightweight it is and fact that it's translucent is even more of a positive for me. I have very oily skin and will sometimes touch up once during the day if my shine is out of control. I was extremely impressed with how much powder is packed into that little container. I bought a second one because I thought i was almost out, that was three weeks ago and I still haven't opened the new one lol. As other reviews have stated it can be messy, but what loose powder can't be, right?pros:-lightweight on skin-sets concealer beautifully-cannot be seen on skin-allows me to mattify without the dry lol-a lot of product is in the small container-easy to find, sold in most stores that carry makeupcons:-messy, and can pour out fast

I've been a Makeup Forever HD Powder junkie for years and I've been looking for a drugstore dupe for such a long time. This works as well (if not better) than MUF. It keeps my under eye concealer in place and when I set my whole face with it, I feel like it makes my skin look flawless. I just really wish that these loose powders at the drugstore could figure out a way to have a sifter that closes... But I figured out that you can put a round compact sponge in the sifter tray to keep it from being so messy.
