This product didn't meet my expectations. Does not stay matte. Had to reapply throughout the day.

This summer I purchased Paula's Choice Healthy Finish Pressed BRONZING POWDER in HEALTHY TAN. Great product! I am fair skinned with red blotches and this product w/a daub of concealer has been perfect for summer. Nice coverage and a wonderful glow. Lasted all day through Alabama's summer heat. Note: If applying all-over face as foundation, use soft brush to glide on jaw line and …Read more

I bought this at half price when I saw that it was being discontinued. After trying it for about two weeks I had to order more to stock up. I tend to have oily skin and this is a great powder to carry in my purse. It sets makeup nicely and controls shine without looking too powdery.

I bought three of these when they were on sale at $6 each. I think they were being discontinued, too. Wise purchase. I was looking for something to replace my expensive Lancome dual foundation powder, and to me this is even better than the Lancome power. However, I generally don't use this powder all over my face but rather use it to set the concealer I use under my eyes (I have the …Read more

Got this in Buff for my NC20/25 skin but no I didn't like it - not quite sure why, think the colour was off and it was a little drying.

I gave it to my daughter though and she loved it, I would say she is a tad paler than me with the usual teenager skin and she felt it had a little coverage to it and yes she would get it again.

Why or why did I wait to buy this when it was on the verge of being d/c'd? Light Olive is the perfect shade for toning down excessive ruddiness or pinkness. The texture is sumptuous, smooth, silky and luxurious. No flyaways at all. Some have complained that no puff is included. I think it is because Paula would prefer you to use a brush -- which you really should to keep the application …Read more

First of all, I'm not sure why there isn't anything included to help apply this powder. That said, I purchased the Buff and it is a decent color for my skin tone, but a little on the yellow side. I normally use Origins Silk Screen in Tender (15) which I still adore. Paula's is not too good for my combo skin, it tends to really enhance the dry patches and it feels like it is …Read more

Paula's Select Soft Pressed Powder in Light Olive is an exact match for a NC25. However, I wish it had more oil-absorbing properties.
