I was so excited for this product. I wanted a photoshop finish. Instead it made me look flat and too matt. In photos my under eyes were white. I was disappointed.

I don't get it
Purchased

I ordered this product because I wanted to conceal the pores on my nose. This is just a very fine powder. It didn't do anything that any other powder would do. It was also extremely messy when you applied. I found myself coughing many times with the powder escaped from the container and flew up into the air. Don't waste your money. A primer is a much better product for minimizing pores, in my opinion.

Made my pores more obvious

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!

Awful!
Purchased

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.

Collagen = Animals

Upon first glance, this seemed like a great product for me, as it is free of talc, parabens, fragrances, etc. However, it contains collagen. Collagen can come from plants (i.e. seaweed) or animals (i.e. fish). Upon contacting the IT Cosmetics company directly, they confirmed that their collagen is from oceanic fish. They reassured me that they are PETA-certified in that they don't test on the animals. However, the use of fish in facial powder doesn't seem animal friendly to me. I would recommend the Juice Beauty refining finishing powder instead; it is both organic and vegan.

Is it on?
Purchased

I bought this after reading the reviews and description - it was exactly what I needed. I was pretty disappointed in the product. I think it made no difference and after putting it on a few times I never used it again.

Great product
Purchased

This did the job as far as controlling my oily skin but I was not a fan of the powder being white and needed to put something over it anyway. It was good but I would not buy it again.

Little bit goes a long way
Purchased

I am still not sold on this product. I do feel that helps control my oily t-zone more than my normal powder. I wished the container was a bit bigger so I could use something other than the applicator it comes with. I do like that it does not take much and I foresee me being able to use this product for quite some time!

it does the job - a little more than I need it to. I think better for really oily skin, otherwise the powder just kind of sits on top of your skin. But if you've had a grody day, this will clean you up. Great base for eyelids, too.

I wanted to love it ...
Purchased

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.
