I never knew this product existed until I went to makeup school. I knew that MAC had a Pro Invisible Setting powder and I haven't tried it yet, but I hear it's good!
This baby was a required purchase for our Special FX class to set our makeup without adding any colour. It can cause a slight whitish cast at first if you use too much, but it dissipates pretty quickly. It was always gone by the time I looked in the mirror again. Also, for personal use you wouldn't need as much for setting makeup as you would, say, a 'bruise' that you didn't want to rub off on an actor's clothing.
For setting and mattifying, this baby does *rock*. When I set my makeup, I want ~matte~ and this works better than any other powder I've tried. (Including SK and LM loose powders)
It comes in a clear plastic shaker container (just like the Ben Nye powders) for $19 Cdn which holds 3X the amount my LM pot does. Bargain? You bet!
Repurchase? Absolutely!

This is a very good setting powder. It mattifies well, sets makeup well, and is incredibly cheap (3oz size which most will get for personal use is about $5-$6). Unfortunately, it makes my face itch like crazy. I don't get hives or anything, or break out from it, just...itchy. Very, very strange. My shaker jar has no ingredients label on it so I can't even begin to imagine what's causing this. Nevertheless, in a world full of face powders that don't make me itch, there is no good reason for me to use this one. Too bad, because it performs well for the price.

It is what it says, and it does what it says.... Totally invisible setting perfection. I love this stuff... Fine milled to imperceptible ideal loveliness!

$8 for 3 oz. WOW, add no colour, does not cake over fdn, no fragrance, no obvious dry cracking feeling even on my dry cheeks, what more can you ask for. OK, so it comes in a salt shaker like those in a greasy spoon restaurant. I can always transfer that into another fancy container. btw I always save those nice cosmetic containers as a momento. I especially like this on my T-zone to soak up those grease. It makes me look clean & the liquid fdn doesn't slide off. I will repurchase for sure, but this one here will last me at least over a year.

This is one of my favorite powders! It sets beautifully and even though, i don't wear foundation..after i put my sunscreen on, it leaves a slight oily/shiny after effect and the powder works efficiently! There's no cakey look, itchy feel...it's invisible,cheap, effective and it works!
I love it and will be repurchasing....if it ever runs out that is :)

You can't beat this! Sets my makeup beautifully. It does initially give me a white powder look (I'm AA w/dark skin) but it quickly fades into my skin. Another great thing about this powder other than the price is that my make up doesn't rub off on every thing. The downside is that it only comes as a loose powder and can't completely keep my my oilies away.

Since I love their foundation, I thought I would love the powder but was disappointed. When applied, this powder looked whitish over my RCMA Shinto 2 makeup. I didn't like the look at all - it didn't look natural so I trashed it. Still love the makeup though.

I have had this powder for a while and I have decided to shop in my stash instead of buying new products. I have been eyeing the Prep and Prime powder from MAC and decided to give this a try since I already have it!...LOL The powder works well for me. I use it to set my MAC Face and Body foundation. It doesn't make my dry which is good for my skin. It doesn't give a white cast even though I am AA. I also spritz my face with Fix+, however I do that with all my powders. For the price, I would repurchase!

Excellent for setting my RCMA foundation. It makes my skin look really matte and helps fill in pores well. It also comes in a pretty big jar for only $8, so I'll have this for a looooooooong time. Definitely a good purchase.
