This is an OK powder foundation for short-terme wear, because it turns orange very easily. I only use this during a shoot where the MU is washed away quickly. I do not consider this as a versatile product as Smashbox says, because it is very easy for this to become too powdery. Even if they had some gorgeous neutral colors, this does not live up to its claims. The only thing I like from this …Read more

Pros:
Great on it's own and as a setting powder
Doesn't look cakey

Cons:
Looks terrible if you apply it with a dense brush

This product has never made me look orange. I love it as my setting powder because it provides a little bit more coverage and makes my face look matte and flawless. I like using a large fluffy brush with this product and I would …

I purchased this with hopes of applying it dry and wet. Wet sponge and this product...big no no! Works great as a powder to dust off shine with a brush. I hate the sponge. The fact that it is not a versatile as it seems--a tad bit overpriced for me.

I agree with all the reviewers who turned orange. I looked like I had a fake tan which wouldn't bother me if the color matched lol I didn't like the coverage either. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.

After applying this product, my face was saying "wrong tan, big time." It's not heavy or cakey, if it's dull looking, but becomes a fake tan on my skin. Also, I had to really dig in with a wet sponge to use it wet, which was so hard. I was hooked into its claim for versatility, but I feel cheated after trying it out. As a powder, it's okay, I only wish it wasn't …Read more

Goes on powdery, but after a while melts in. Very good colour match for me, I have trouble finding yellow enough foundation (The L1-L2 shade is about NC 20-25). I recommend using a flocked sponge or puff to apply this rather than the sponge that it comes with it for medium coverage. The sponge neither picks up the powder nor transfers the powder well. DID NOT work with a wet sponge, even …Read more

I really love this foundation. I really wanted another powder foundation to alternate with my dior forever compact. I have a fair complexion and I use this in f1-f2. I am about an nc 20-25 so I can also see how this can be too dark for some complexions. I hate powders that have talc in it because it feels dry on my skin. I liked how this one was talc-free, and also paraben free! It feels nice on …Read more

This turned orangey on me. Also broke me out. Didn't cover that much even when used with the #19 Smashbox brush (it's supposed to provide medium coverage but that wasn't the case. I use this brush with my Hourglass Oxygen Powder Foundation and it works great). Also, this is $42 CAD and at first I thought 'this is less expensive than my Hourglass foundation' but …Read more
