The pros of this product are:
-Cheap price
-Very finely milled
-Great finish
-Adds extra coverage/blurs imperfections

The cons:
-Palest shade leans cool toned (I'm warm) and a tad bit too dark
-Only stays matte on me for about 4 hours
-Without fail, breaks me out every time.

The finish is so pretty that if this didn't break me out, I'd find a way to make it work for me. Unfortunately though something in this breaks me out big time, which I assume is the cornstarch. I am apparently a GIANT MORON because I've purchased it several times over the years hoping my skin won't freak out. Sigh. I won't be repurchasing again.

As someone with very fair skin, I feel as though I've tried every ds powder there is in a constant attempt to find one that doesn't turn a funky color on my skin, turn me into an oil slick or break me out or make my redness worse. I've found a few that I like, but this is probably my favorite.

The translucent is just lovely; it sets my foundation beautifully without making me look cakey. It's probably the closest I'll ever get to a nice airbrushed finish. There is no weirdly perfumed smell. I also find that I don't need to over apply to achieve a shine-free finish. That's probably part of the reason it's lasted me these many months. I believe I've had this container for five months, and I'm on the way to Target now for another.

All in all, I think I would call this my HG at the moment. Application can be a little messy, that's the only downside. But really, I'm purchasing a loose powder...it's going to be a little- you know- loose.

If you're looking for a loose translucent powder, it really doesn't get much better than this. I mean it's nothing magical, and it's probably just as good as any other translucent powder out there but DAMN is it ever cheap. The stuff comes in a huge container that lasts forever, and it was like under $5 cnd I'm pretty sure. The container itself does suck though, it's not a twist on cap or anything so it's definitely susceptible to coming apart in your bag, so I just transfer some of the powder into a smaller loose powder container that I already had and I just keep the big container at home in a drawer. I will buy this again and again and again

Left me with a white cast. Looks good If was going for a goth look since it paled me out to the point of getting me two tones lighter without looking too off putting but, that's not the look I was going for. Good thing it was cheap though. Wouldn't purchase again but, it comes with soo much product that it will so last me a couple years.

I have very oily t-zone so I always set it with powder. I really like bare minerals mineral veil but ever since my daughter was born 2 yrs ago I just couldn't spend much money on makeup so I started to look for a cheaper options. The powder isn't as finely textured like mineral veil but I can deal plus for the price and the amount it's a great deal and it works. The only thing I hope NYC will change is the packaging. Please put a screw lid on!

Sets makeup well but doesn't control my oil for more than 2 hours. Packaging isn't as bad as everyone says. It looks like nothing on your face

This powder was surprisingly good at controlling shine on my face! It doesn't make my skin look ashy or dry, unless I pile it on a lot! The consistency is SOOOOOOOOO smooth and blends like a dream! The packaging could be improved though: First, the lid isn't "screwy", so if you grab the lid it will just fall off, and I also think there should be a sifter so everything doesn't fall out uncontrollably. Other than that, this is a good powder and I would repurchase both loose and pressed form!
