I use this product as a setting powder over my makeup everyday. it gives a decent coverage and comes a 5 or 6 different shades. I like this product!!!
By the end of the day I tend to get oily skin, this powder was applied before being in a wedding party and it lasted all through the ceremony and reception! No shining even though I was busting a move on the dance floor!
Love the hydrating powder for the spring/summer months - great coverage for a powder without looking cakey! Downside, I don't really use it in the winter because my skin gets too dry!
While the price may scare you, the amount of powder you actually get is DOUBLE than other brands. I like how the loose powder is created with every new use rather than we constantly available. I find that the powder lasts a lot longer this way.
The coverage is perfect and I do not look like a 'cake face' at all . I am 45 and my daughter is 20 and we both use this product and are equally happy.
Not a fan at all. Im bare minerals all the way. This was so much more expensive and had terrible lasting power. It actually LOOKED like I was wearing heavy power on my face, so if I tried to apply less it had no coverage what so ever. I normally just use up products I don't like but I returned this asap.
I have oily skin with occasional redness. This just isn't the product for me.
Guys this stuff is costly, but so worth it. It is my splurge item. Makes your skin look and feel great. Give it a try you wont be sorry. I have got my whole extended family hooked on this stuff.
i love this, its one of my essentials, it stays on all day and still looks flawless
I literally cannot say enough good things about this powder. In fact it's so amazing that before fair/light was a colour I found myself buying two and mixing them together just to get my shade.
This melts into the skin to the point that it doesn't even look like you are wearing a powder anymore and while it is hydrating I don't find that it adds more oil to my face, though when I have a dry patch or two it doesn't cling and accentuate them like other powders. For a loose powder it actually covers quite amazingly when you use the correct brushes and I even mix it in with a tinted moisturiser some days to create a cream base!
The container stops a lot of the mess that comes with many loose powders because you just 'shave' the product up as you go along. The price originally appears daunting BUT if you look at the size it's almost double the size of Bare Mineral's hydrating powder (15g at $58 vs 8g at $32).
I seriously encourage EVERYONE to go try this powder on and wear it for the day, you'll buy it the next day and never look back!!
While I miss it coming with a brush I'm not that upset because of the price reduction.
I needed a set like this and I'm glad I came across it ... Although to have to reapply about three times a day, it works great. (I do have to apply liberally...)
I really like it, it is really pricey though, i wish it absorbed oil a bit, but it makes my skin look nice.
