I got the lightest color, so maybe that is why this looks very chalky on me, even if I spend time buffing it in. I didn’t notice any matifying effect either. The packaging is cheap. I hear so many people say it’s so great, and it’s listed online in lots of places as a makeup artist favorite....but I should know by now, the industry is behind a lot of those types of reviews. The best drugstore …Read more

I have pretty much nothing good to say about this powder except its cheap
i wear foundation and concealer, but a very light amount and since i ran out of my banana powder I've been using this. My t-zone is very oily and i expected this to keep it matte for at least a few hours. My t-zone gets extremely shiny within 1 hour and reapplying the powder only makes me look cakey and …

This setting powder makes my makeup last longer, especially my under-eye concealer, and it does an okay job controlling my oily t-zone. I've repurchased it over the years because it's cheap and I personally don't need a fancy setting powder.

I don't really like matte make-up, but this sets my undereyes super nicely. It doesn't look cakey at all and makes my concealer last all day. Don't really like the packaging, but it's good value anyway.

It is an okay powder. I don't think that it does much to help makeup last longer but I like to smack this over my face just to blend everything together. Also doesn't make my face itch, break out or feel dry which is always appreciated. It is extremely sheer too so it doesn't matter which shade you pick up. I like the smell, it is very makeupy but comforting. I will finish my …Read more

First, when I got it (which was about 2 years ago ), I was so in love with it, and I used it so often that I hit pan after a couple of months (haha) But then all of a sudden it fell off the table and broke in pieces…back then I hadn’t tried out so many products as I do now because of my job...

Anyway, we all know that the packaging is simple but not really protective as it’s a plastic compact and it can break easily…

When I repurchased it, I noticed some things which I didn’t see back then or had the knowledge about it...

It is a fantastic powder if you’re setting the foundation and keeps it matte! With my combo skin, I have no problems with the powder as it controls the oil during the day so, I can apply it in the morning, and it will stay put all day …

My HG powder. For context, I do not wear foundation (only undereye concealer) but use this instead as foundation.

Pros:
- Cannot beat the price (usually around $4)
- Buildable coverage
- Natural finish

Cons:
- Packaging can be an issue, mostly because i have cracked the lid so many times by stepping on it. However, if I didn't leave my makeup on the …

It's an ok powder. I bought it after hearing so many goods things from a lot of youtube gurus but I can't say I am impressed. My skin turns greasy too soon usually within an hour but not to an excessive extent. I don't hate it but I don't love it either.

OK powder, doesn't keep me matte for long. Not bad but not that good either.

If you are NC35 like me and would like to give this a try, I recommend 005 Silky beige
