I give this a two out of three, and I own this in translucent. Minus one point for the idiotic packaging; the holes where the powder usually comes out were sealed with plastic and I had to take a pin to pop them open. Why not use a plastic sticker, like ALL the other loose powders I've ever had? Minus another point for the amount of effot I have to put into this, blending etc., to make it look like I haven't crawled six feet out of the ground. That ties into the last minus point: the powder not actually being translucent. The positive side is... um, well, it's cheap. (I paid about $5) I was originaly going to go buy BE Mineral Veil, but I've been pretty broke since I paid this semester's tuition, so I opted for this instead... I'm beginning to think I should have just put a few bucks aside every day for the BE powder, or at least something a little better than this... Palladio is usally a good company (Their e/s, blushes and brushes are nice...) but this just doesn't win. I was so frustrated with stuff, so I didn't wear it long enough to test its staying power or find out if it clogs pores. (With my luck, it'll probably fade off half-way through the day and break me out...) So screw this stuff, I'm saving up for Mineral Veil. continued >>

A big bust. I searched this out b/c of the great reviews, and I don't like this powder at all. It is in a very small box with a little puff pad to apply. Forget the puff pad, I used my powder brush. It's a mess to get out of the box, and then gets all over. The powder itself is OK, feels nice and not cakey or chalky. Did NOT control my shine. I have dry skin, and use Neutrogena Sunblock w/ Age Shield 45 as my moisturizer/sunscreen; and that leaves a dewy sheen on my face. I love the sheen, but need to use a good powder for my T-zone. This powder did not work, and I will not buy again. I will stick w/ my HG = Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed powder.

This product is amazing! It keeps the oil shine down and does't irritate my acne. I cover my blemishes with a liquid and then use the powder to even everything out, that way my makeup isn't as heavy. It's very light so it seems to blend a lot easier. It does seem to need a touch up on particularly humid or oily days, but I usually just carry the blotting papers in my purse and that solves the problem. I also wish the container was a little easier to handle, but it is comparable to most loose powder containers. *update* I"m on to try different powders because I read that rice powder and starch powders are more susceptible to the bacteria that causes acne, then talc powders. I'll write to say if the change was worth it.

This Rice Powder was great. I tried MAC blot powder and it made me look to "powdery." And almost kind of flakey. I wear Differen and Clindagel medication for my face, which kind of makes me nose appear "constricted" and shiny. Well, I put some of this on there, and it completely covered the shine without getting flakey looking :D And it's completely translucent, which is something I absolutely adore, because most "translucents" I've tried still add a bit of color.*UPDATE* I've realized that it's not completely translucent. IF you don't blend well you might come out with really light patches.

The container was too messy. Anytime I opened it, powder would come flying at me. It would get all over my clothes and everywhere. I just might just not be a loose powder kind of gal. More importantly, this stuff broke me out. I don't know what ingredient it was exactly, but my skin did not enjoy. I'll stick with my palladio wet/dry powder.

I bought this because of the good reviews here. It was in a much smaller package than I was expecting. I got the translucent powder. I really love this stuff, it is very fine powder and goes on very nicely. I am oily and this really lasts and stops shine. The "puff" it comes with is no good, use a brush.UPDATE: This is the only product that keeps my skin from getting shiny. I can't live without it, wish they made a pressed rice powder.

Oh my gosh, this stuff is wonderful. I used to use Laura Mercier translucent powder and NEVER AGAIN will I shell out that much money for a loose powder! This is EVEN BETTER than more expensive brands! I have it in Nude which is really more like a light yellow color than translucent. Love you MUA girls for hooking me up with this great product!

I used to use homemade rice powder a couple of years ago (sold by a seller on eBay), but I discontinue due to the texture was kinda rough. After came across Palladioís rice powder here in MUA, I decided to give it a try and Iím sooo glad I did! This rice powder is so finely milled! I have very very oily complexion and this powder (on top of my Palladioís foundation) really make my face a lot less oily Ė which I have never been able to achieved with any other loose powder). I only need to blot once or twice a day max. Iím an AAB with tan/olive complexion and I use the beige shade which works great. I apply this powder with my Versace powder brush, and I also dab a little more on my nose with a flocked sponge. This powder comes in a square thick carton packaging, which isnít the best, but it works. I scoop half of it to BE jar for when I travel. When my Versace loose powder finished, I will transfer this rice powder to the jar (those who know Versace products must know how pretty the packaging are ^.^). I donít remember how much I paid for this powder, but Iím pretty sure it was less than $5 at Sallyís. I will definitely repurchase this again and again!

This is a great powder! It instantly mattifies without being heavy, cakey or drying. For me it helps to keep the oilies at bay for at least several hours (which I consider a triumph). When the oil again breaks through during the day, just a light application makes my skin shine free with no build up. It also doesn't accentuate lines or wrinkles. It's best applied with a brush for a smooth and flawless finish. The price is certainly right - $4.99 at Sally's. The packaging is improved - a plastic lid that fits tightly and a sifter inside. My skin is pretty pale, and the translucent works wonderfully. I'm not crazy about the fact that it is scented, but even though my skin is usually irritated by scents, I haven't had any problems with this. A definite re-buy (when it runs out, which could take quite a while).

Really love MUA reviews! This is the reason I bought it (and will buy it again) The price is just right & the quality is good. I'm combo skin with visible pores. I prefer to use rice powder alone (just use it with the puff that comes in the package) but when I want to cover my pores, I'll use foundation first & follow with rice powder (but this time I use it with powder brush).
