For the first few rounds of trying this powder I felt like everyone else did - it was frustratingly hard to find a working color, and it tended to darken more than I would have expected. (Would have given 5 stars if it was easier to use.) But I've finally figured out how to use this on my very oily skin, which is basically as a finishing veil, and would say it's one of the best powders …Read more

Good foundation for coverage, but I didn't notice smaller pores or a very matte finish. But I am very very oily, so it will probably work better for those with only slightly oily skin. I like to use a thin layer and the look is quite nice. I'm also able to build it up a little over scaring. I don't think this is as matte as some might believe, but i do tend to use a good amount of …Read more

A good little tinted-moisturizer-thingy. It covers better than I thought it would, but I still need concealer in some areas & over some blemishes. The packaging is very convenient, and the price is spot on if you can get a color that works for you.

I think it's darker than you'd think it would be, so i would get a lighter shade than you think you're going to be. I …

Im dark olive and use light-medium. (i tend to go one shade lighter when i use powders instead of foundation because they always go dark). I normally wear it alone or over tinted moisturizer, & My oily skin helps this to really create a natural skin look. However, i still need blotting papers throughout the day. Too much powder reapplied in the day i will turn very dark because my oils soak …Read more

I never give five stars to PF because as nice as their powders might be, I can't really use them for lack of good color selection. I want to be able to use all their facepowders and not just the occasional bronzer for "blush" - its very frustrating to me. But this was a pleasant surprise!
It's super quick and easy to apply, feels very light on the skin, and really …

Mar/20/2014

I am really surprised at this little foundation.
I was pleased to find a relatively good color match. I don't mind the squeeze tube and the price is excellent. I don't feel this helps with oil control but it doesn't enhance oiliness either - it feels relatively light on the skin.

It smoothes out really nice and sets nice and dry on the skin.
I don't …

I am very acne prone and it's usually cystic in nature. Previous to using this concealer I was clear...
I have to admit that this is a very nice concealer. It is smooth and i can blend it well. I usually don't wear concealers because I'm afraid of putting too much makeup on & causing breakouts. Well, I should have listened to my inner voice. I started using this to cover …

I really like this foundation but worry about all the silicones. I'm oily and acne prone and tend not to do well with silicones. Since using this foundation I've been maintaining my acne treatments and have found no significant problems with this foundation. I do however see small bumps here and there but nothing that is not manageable.

This makeup blends amazingly. It does …

I love this foundation. I'm probably closest in color to Soft Honey but it still leaves too peachy/pink a tone on me even though it looks very yellow. So I've resorted to mixing Tawny and Classic Ivory. It's working well on my winter skin.

I do have oily skin although I feel that either because of winter time or my new cleaning regimen it's a bit less of a problem …
