HI there! I use the naturally beige shade...stopped being able to find it in stores a year or so ago, but could still get it cheap on Amazon. Now the price has gone up, so I'm guessing they're not manufacturing it anymore? Anybody know? This was my go-to powder. :(

I LOVE this product. Bought it on impulse as I already have a banana one from another brand for under-eye. I use a reasonable amount after priming, after foundation, after doing details and then setting spray. It removes my surface oils and sets my face. I have a medium brown skin tone (Maybelline Toffee is my shade), and it doesn’t leave a cast. YES, I would buy it again.

I bought this powder after seeing Kathleen Lights raving about it at her “underrated makeup products”...
the good: beautiful satin finish, tone of product, great price point.

The bad:
this IS NOT TRANSLUCENT!!!
It have a a pinky hue that completely alter the color of the foundation! (Try it with multi foundations)
extremely drying for my normal-combination skin type, can look cakey.
If you’re planning to buy this as translucent powder/ undereye setting powder- skip this one.
End up at my dud drawer. 😑

Impressed with this loose powder for how nice the finish is. I don't wear foundation, and have been applying a small amount of this on top of my sunscreen.
To help control how much shakes out, I don't remove most of the sticker --- only enough for a couple of rows of sifter holes.
I also apply this with a flat top kabuki brush.
I usually use MAC Select loose, but I like this better...it's actually finer than the MAC loose powder. My only concern is that this is made in China. Still not sure if I trust ingredients from China.

Very finely milled. Easy to blend. Undetectable on the skin. Matte finish. Good oil control, yet non drying. Good color match. Fragrance free. Repurchasing for sure.

I decided to try this powder and it just does not work for me two hours into wearing I am an oily mess with foundation missing in patches and a cakey look which I did not started out with,defiantly not a repurchase for me.

I have this in the shade "Translucent", and I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised that I love this powder! It's very comparable to the Laura Mercier loose powder. I use this to set my whole face, baking included. I have very oily skin and most powders don't stand a chance on me. This keeps my oil at bay for a good amount of the day but starts to breakdown at the end of the day. My only complaint is that the packaging sucks. It's very messy and powder flies everywhere when you close the lid. Other than that, it's a good deal for $3.

I have tan skin and this makes my foundation look ashy. I haven't tried a setting spray on top because I already threw the powder away.. Yes I don't like it.

Also it makes my undereyes look very dry, cracked and powdery, but on the rest of the face it doesnt control oil as well as Id like.

Maybe fair women that use setting spray and powder sparingly would prefer this. I threw away both this loose version and the compact version, which I found to be better than the loose.

This is terrible powder. It starts out ok, but within an hour of putting it on, I look like a giant oil slick. I would not repurchase.

I absolutely love this powder better than the Laura Mercier. I honestly don't understand what the whole hype is with that powdee. It's so over priced. Anyways, this keeps my skin matte and its very fine...oh yeah, and it is only $3!
