I just rediscovered this powder going through my stash. I have it in both Honey and Caramel. Using it with a brush makes it translucent, but it gives great coverage if I use it with a puff or sponge. Recently I've been using white matte powder to set my foundation, but now that the weather is getting warmer, I'm switching to this over just SPF. I buy Prestige makeup at Rite Aid, so it's reasonably priced.

Reading the previous reviews, this product obviously works on a variety of skin tones. Carmel. The effective camelion. Sat in my drawer for months because I attempted to use this as a setting powder with a fluffy brush and then alone with a sponge. This looked masky, fake and way off color. Tried again as a stand alone powdered foundation with a buff brush...heaven.I think this found it's way to the clearance stock because it's marketed as "translucent" which it is not. I can't imagine this as translucent on anyone. But, the fault here is what makes this product great for me: Excellent coverage. I have had a VERY hard time finding a yellow based product that works. This is finally it. Matte. I'm an oily girl so I do get an appreciable "glow" by mid-day. The glow is a good thing, no need to blot yet. With this product, no caked on look, no color change to the dreaded Orangies. And so far, no breakouts to my sensitive, acne-prone skin.Highly recommeded, even over MAC, as a powdered foundation for medium to full coverage. Walgreens orange stickered, less than 3usd. Definate repurchase at just about any price. After 2 full - and failed - MAC s/f compacts in the same drawer - yeah, I'd pay the same for this product that WORKS. I challange MAC NC users, If you can find this, get it, get over the "label/name", try this product and tell me if I'm wrong.

I have so many face makeup products that I've only used once or twice, and this is one of them. I like this powder. It's fairly sheer and does a fine job of stopping shine. Caramel is an excellent match for my skin tone. It certainly is convenient for daily use. Just need to buy a nice powder puff to squish on top of the compact, since it doesn't come with anything to apply with. I haven't used this enough to know if it breaks me out or not. Would repurchase, but doubt I will need to for a long time.

I picked this up by accident, thinking it was the MultiFinish foundation in a new shade (Oatmeal) lol. You can imagine my surprise when I ripperd off the plastic packaging to see "Perfectly Matte" on the bottom, when I really wanted to try the MultiFinish because of its dewiness. (I only actually use pressed powder under my eyes, in any yellow hue that's a shade lighter than my asian skin). Decided to try it on anyway, since I got it for under $10. Was pleasantly surprised that it blended perfectly with my light asian under-eye skin! It literally melted into my face (I use my fingers) and it looked really natural, just without the bluish tint. It was matte alright, very finely milled and did what it promised! Just have to look closer to get the right product next time! lol

Wow. This makes my skin look flawless. It hasn't broken me out so far. I have oily acne-prone skin. Will update if I changed my mind.

I got this in Oatmeal and it's a perfect match. I like a pressed powder that is hard milled as it appears more sheer on the skin and this is it. Sets foundation with a sheer veil of powder. Good stuff.

I bought this product because I use Prestige's wet/dry powder foundation and I wanted a thin compact of pressed powder for touch-ups during the day. After perusing the other drugstore brands, I settled on Prestige's powder mostly because I liked the compact. It's thin, and has a classy clear lid with silver printing around the outside. One of my coworkers seemed surprised when I told her it was a DS brand! So, the product. It's a nice powder, not quite as silky as high-end brands, but certainly nice enough. It applies evenly, doesn't seem to cake up on my foundation, and does a nice job matte-ing down my oilies. I'm docking a lippie because it doesn't come with anything to apply it with - I had to buy some puffs, which have to be carried separately from the compact. The color range seems limited, but the Oatmeal shade is a good match for my skin tone. continued >>
