*This review is for the new 'TINTED' Balancing Powder.I was torn between purchasing the new Tinted Balancing Powder or the new Tinted Silk Dust, so I bought the Tinted Balancing Powder instead and LOVE it! The color it very neutral- (which is what I was looking for... no pink tones to it at all)- and it is really good at keeping my oily summer skin at bay. Plus, it doesn't change the color of my foundation! Great product and would purchase again!

I have used the silk dust, finishing powder, and this balancing powder. I do think the balancing powder does a better job at controlling the oil on my skin, but I still do have to blot by lunch for sure. My skin is just super oily! I have used it just under the foundation and then on bottom and top of the foundation. Either way seems to work fine. I actually prefer to use it first and last; I think I like it more than the finishing powder. I really don't think the silk dust controlled oil at all.Update: This does seem to leave a whitish cast on my face and I have found that Physicians formula mineral veil does a nice job as controlling my oil and covering my pores. The balancing powder has also been discontinued.

I haven't used this on top of my foundation, as I find EM regular Finishing Dust works best for that, however, as a primer it's fantastic! Pores disappear and oil is kept at bay for HOURS (I used to have to blot my face fanatically, but no more)! Highly recommend as a primer for everyone with oily skin.UPDATE: no longer sure how I feel about this powder

I am such a huge EM fan (just check out my past Board messages and the majority of my reviews) so when they came out with the new Balancing Powder, I just had to try it. I didn't even bother trying a small sample of it. I knew that this powder was supposed to be inorganic (no cornstarch, etc.) but also suppose to help absorb the oilies.Well, I use it under my foundation on my T-Zone (nose & forehead), then I use the regular Finishing Dust on top of everything else. It seems to make a huge difference as I notice it still looks pretty fresh around lunchtime when I usually have some shine breakthrough.Now I tried an experiment yesterday where I just used the Balancing Powder under and on top of my regular foundation and there was minimal to no shine for most of the day (7-8 hours)! I think this is a great product.**Just note that this isn't quite as translucent as the Finishing Dust which is why I used the Eve Dual Fiber Brush to put it on on TOP of my foundation so it wouldn't go on so thick.Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Iron Oxides, Silica. continued >>

***THIS IS A REVIEW FOR THE KAOLIN POWDER in FAIR!!***everyday minerals has truly created a transparent finishing powder with this. many finishing powders claim to be transparent, but we see that slight pigmentation! I use this over my foundation, it adds no colour, yet truly reduces shine throughout the day; LOVE!

I think this is a pretty good product so I am surprised at the reviews. I apply just a little bit under my foundation and it successfully keeps my face from looking oily. It goes on translucent on my dark skin. If you put on too much it can look dry.

This stuff is fantastic when applied UNDER the foundation. it really helps prime for my foundation on a normal day. but when i need EXTRA staying I use my BE primer, balancing powder and then use the make up. This keeps my oilies down (as much as anything can for me) and definitly keeps my makeup from sliding off my face. again, this is much much better when used under the makeup.Of course you can use it again after the makeup for that velvety porceline doll look. i LOVE this in the tinted formula, it adds that little bit of oomph before i add my MMU so i use less foundation :)

I did not think that it controlled oil, and the colour is waaaay too light for my t-zone (and I am very pale!) I'm sticking with the Tinted Silk Dust and Finishing Powder!

I got this product from a girl who sold it over one of the forums.Since the price was low, I bought it from her. Sure, it did control the oiliness in my tzone but i guess it is too white for me. What I did is to put it under the foundation just so that I dont look like a ghost. When it comes to packaging, my gosh, the stuff was all over the place. I had to clean my makeup bag and purse since it leaked from the container.Over all, I dont think I would repurchase this. Will just finish this one pot but will switch to the tinted one.

WOW..I was really suprised to see the bad reviews....I am a tanned person check profile pic and though it can leave a whitish cast, just blend or usee bronzer after....this powder leaves me completely matte, skins so soft and no breakouts. It is a really awesome powder, If they did make it tinted I would prefer tinted like BE tinted mv....not EM tinted powders I find they are too dark, and make my skin look muddy!
