I've tried a few loose and pressed setting powders but this one is the best!
It has minimal, safe ingredients for those out there with breakout/sensitive skin. It also is very finely milled to allow for flawless application. YOU CAN GO OVERBOARD so be careful with how much you put on. You only need a light dusting over pore areas/oily areas.
I have very large pores on my cheeks and around my nose and it really diffuses them perfectly, especially in pictures. It also helps control my oily t-zone. If you put too much it can leave a white/light cast so its imperative to use a tiny amount.
I've had this powder for a year or two now and its still ridiculously full even with some travel where I spilled some. The only problem is the powder is so finely milled it gets into the sides of the cap and makes it hard to close sometimes but its really not an issue.
This is definitely worth the price considering some other comparable powders are 40$+ (NARS I'm looking at you!). You can even use the wayne goss method of applying a very sheer layer of powder before your makeup application and after to make your skin look smoother and last ALL day.
I did that with this powder for my graduation day which started with makeup application at 6am and lasted until midnight after my party!
Definitely recommend for you to try it out at least and make sure you apply a small amount and if necessary can build it up. If you do put too much on just use a beauty blender to pounce it and diffuse it.
Great translucent powder!!
I have been trying to find an alternative to Bare Minerals Mineral Veil (with which I was never very satisfied) and found this product by searching on Birchbox. Purchased solely based on the reviews. I am very, very happy with this product. This product goes a long way to even out my relatively light (with red patches) skin tone and reduce the appearance of pores. It creates a great finish over foundation or BB cream and holds the whole day.
I apply it with the Heavenly Luxe Powder Brush from the same brand, which is also an outstanding product.
Very pleased. Eager to try other items in the line.
Great Powder for a Smooth Airbrushed Complexion!
Loooove this powder! It's super-fine and smooths right over the skin flawlessly, giving an airbrushed look. I apply this with my kabuki brush - sometimes I use it alone (after moisturizer and sunscreen) and sometimes I use it as a setting powder over my BB cream. Either way, amazing results! I have combo skin leaning towards the oily side and large pores, so this powder is a gem because it conceals pores very nicely...never cakey and never settles into lines!
I love this!
I love this powder. It really makes your face look flawless! It gives my face a satin feel. It's great. I will buy it again!
Clear skin, not powdery
This does a great job of sheerly setting makeup, and making skin look a little more perfect without looking like you are wearing powder. It is important to use very very little at a time to get the effect.
