I'm not sure if I have used this product correctly...I have oily skin and I thought it was gonna help me to set up my foundation and matify my skin, but it didn't. After 30 minutes, my ''shiny face'' was coming back. I usually love Tarte products, but I believe this one is just not for me...

This is the most bizarre powder I have ever used. I worked as a makeup artist for a few years so I have tried the lot. This powder is 100% visible on your skin no matter what you do and you don't need flash photography to see it. Even with the slightest touch to your skin, this powder will grab onto any foundation and/or concealer and stay put. It does not blend well at all and products do not blend out over it either. The worst mistake you can make is trying to bake with this powder. Not only can you see it all over your face, you can also feel it all day. This is the worst translucent powder I have ever tried and I couldn't even bear to give it to anyone, I just had to throw it out. Laura Mercier and NYC have this beat in every single way. Do not buy this product.

I will have to say that I expected more from this product. I always use a powder to set my foundation. This powder has a superfine texture, which is nice, and it is translucent, which is also nice. The powder kept my makeup in place for the first couple of hours of wear, then, disappointingly it melted off my face leaving me shiny and unhappy. Too expensive to perform so poorly.

This took me a long time to use up. A little goes a long way! It did a great job setting my foundation. I really liked it!

I have combination dry/sensitive skin. It's a loose finishing powder. You need to remove a small plug in the product. Then you need to push both sides to release the powder through a small hole. Supposedly, it gives you the right amount if powder. I'm not sure about that. It's an odd design which I didn't like. The powder is white and you need to blend in well. I sweated through the product and I didn't do much for me.
