Because this powder is so fine, it settled into all of my pores, making them look much more obvious instead of masking them. I feel like it accentuated each pore - not a good look. It also didn't seem to blend in very well, making my face look powdery. As another reviewer mentioned, this powder goes everywhere - it's very fine and just opening the little jar is enough to create a little volcano of powder all over your bathroom :)
I wanted to love it, but my search for a good pore minimizer continues!
I have absolutely loved this. It doesn't leave a white powdery finish, and blends amazing. and gives my face an amazing glow.
I couldn't believe how well this powder camouflaged my pores! I originally bought this powder to set my under-eye concealer, but I found it worked amazing on hiding my large pores and also forehead lines. It didn't do as well as I'd hope for the under eye area, because it seemed to darken the area just a tad. If not for this, I would have given it 5 stars, because it is an outstanding product!
Goodbye Shiny Face!
My skin tends to get shiny even though I have combination skin so I wanted to try this to get rid of the shine. The reviews were great so I ordered it. I really like it. A very little goes a long way. It really leaves your face smooth and shine-free even after hours of wear. Not cakey or streaky in the least! Great price too.
I wanted to love it ...
This is just okay for me. It doesn't hide my pores and frankly, it looks a little too "powdery" on my face. Maybe I'll like it better in the summer. Until then, I'll stick with MUF high definition powder or Hourglass.
I absolutely love this powder. Just dip a soft powder brush in a tiny bit, swirl it in the cap, tap off the excess, and gently buff it on your face. It keeps my foundation in place so nicely all day and really reduces shine (I tend to get shiny pretty early on in the day).
Keeps shine at bay
I often find that in pictures, my face looks shiny and greasy. This is probably due to all of the moisturizer that I use. I was looking for a product that would prevent the mid-day shiny look on my forehead, nose and cheeks and this is definitely it! Use just a small amount for a flawless look.
So disappointed with this powder! All the positive reviews said nothing about how the fine powder puffs into the air with every application, making it impossible to breath. This sounds ridiculous, but I actually had to leave my bathroom and finish applying makeup in another room so that I would stop coughing!! I use hairspray, dry shampoo, finishing powder, etc on a daily basis and have never had a product that made the room unbreathable. I couldn't use the powder to it's full potential because this fiasco made it unusable.
I'm not sure this is ALL that
This is definitely mattifying, but I find it almost too drying and for me I find this makes me itchy (especially if on the forehead). I removed it from my routine a couple of times and re-introduced it to make sure. My skin isn't particularly sensitive -- but it really doesn't like this for some reason. The powder is very silky feeling, but I have found others that look better on the skin.
How did I live without this powder before?
When I saw product reviews for this, I jumped at the chance to buy it. It does exactly what it says--eliminates pores. I have rather oily skin and my pores are starting to show with my age, but this powder completely eliminates them. You can wear it over makeup or alone--it's completely invisible. And it makes your skin look and feel soft and flawless. A little goes a long way. I wear it over BB cream and under powder, but it looks just as good by itself. The puff included works well but isn't really necessary--I use a large brush or my fingers to put it on. I'll echo another reviewer's suggestion to pat it on instead of spreading it, because you may transfer your foundation to the puff. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who regularly sees their makeup disintegrate at the end of the day or has visible pores. Worth every penny. This will be a regular staple in my makeup bag, even on makeup-free days.
