This is a truly old school product but it proves that something doesn't have to be the latest and supposedly greatest. It's everything they say : a powder that feels almost creamy, covers like...

I really love this powder. By far, this is the best powder that I have tried. I really love the smell as well, it smells nostalgic. The only downside is the compact itself. Why doesn't it have any...

Out of all the face powders I have tried over the years, from high-end to budget brands, this is my favourite. I had been using 'translucent' for a few years - it lasts - but I just replaced it...

Beautiful coverage and makes my foundation last all day. It's better when applied with the sponge instead of a brush, since it's actually a 2-in-1 product (powder-foundation) and it's buildable...

It adds a little bit of coverage but tends to exaggerate wrinkles. Packaging is awful it easily opens in your makeup bag and can make a mess. I think for the price you can find much better product...

I have to laugh at all the 'old lady' 'the smell!' reviews. Obviously from teens and twenties mostly - used to today's sugar/berry/celebrity fume overload. To me, the smell is very subtle indeed,...

Good value for a decent powder with a matte and silky finish. It's heavily perfumed, but I don't mind that. It keeps the shine off my face and gives a medium coverage. It's a great setting powder...

Absolutely awful. Bought this a few months ago, but only opened it recently. As someone with very clear skin, this is one of the few products that makes me break out - after only 3 uses! Smell...

I have bought a few of these over the years. I used it to set my foundation, and I used it when I was into a very matte look. It does mattify the skin for long hours but can be drying, if used too...

I bought this the other day after I found it for a cheap price. Honestly it is ok, but not the best. The major turn off for me is the scent. It reminds me of my granny's room before she passed...
