”I have this exact brand and name except in loose powder form! It’s titled CG truBlend minerals in 405! It says it’s translucent fair, loose mineral powder! This is an amazing powder, it does have some micro glitter in it that isn’t ideal for baking under the eyes since it’s colored slightly, too, but I used to use it for baking lol! Switched to translucent loose powder with a diff brand but this powder does the work! It’s great for all over the face and since it’s foundation loose powder with some color, it’s great for covering imperfections. Again the tiny micro glitter isn’t ideal for baking under the eyes when it comes to concealer but for over the entire face it’s beautiful if you don’t mind the bits of glitter. I still use my powder, not sure if there’s still loose powder in this form as when I scanned it, it came as the truBlend pressed form! lovely and a holy grail for sure! :)”

The reason why I gave this product a try was because I loved the other CoverGirl products. I thought this one will also live up to my expectations. The powder itself is too dense -- when I apply it on my skin, it doesn't blend at all. It gets all cakey and gives me white patches in the middle of the day. I always end up rubbing my skin to try to blend the patches. It also doesn't help in minimizing the oil on my face. Won't buy this again.about 2 months ago
I use this to set my face after applying cushion foundation, and before applying eye makeup. Before I used to blot my face a few times as the day comes to an end, and reapply pressed powder. But now I only apply it in the morning, and I don't really need to reapply since my face doesn't get too oily and I don't have to blot. The only downside I can think of this, is its packaging. It doesn't look enticing with its sort of outdated design, and the mirror of the compact is small it doesn't even cover the whole circle which I think is weird. I apply this using a brush, so I don't really use the poof that goes with it but that looks kinda cheap as well.3 months ago
Got this on sale. I don't wear that much make up these days so I swapped my foundations for pressed powders. I've been using Rimmel London in Transparent and I really loved it but it's so hard find locally so I decided to try this and it did not disappoint! It's like a dupe of Rimmel! The staying power is awesome, in fact I did not notice my face getting shiny for as much as 6 hours! Will definitely repurchase.3 months ago
I usually just use baby powder but I decided to use something befitting my age. This powder doesn't have a smell. The feeling is light and the coverage is good for me since I have nice skin so I don't need heavy coverage. You can use it on its own and it brightens under the eyes. My only problem is the packaging. It does not look like the one in the picture. It looks cheaper but it doesn't matter as long as it works.4 months ago
I've been using this since I am in college, this is the only product that doesnt give me acne. Good thing I found the one. I have an oily skin but this powder is magic it doesnt give me oily face. I love cover girl. I recommend this to my sister and she is also using the same product.4 months ago
This is a very light-weight powder. True to its claim, it is translucent. It cannot cover my blemishes but it can set my makeup. However, I don't know how to feel about this product. All I know is that I do not like the effect it gives. For some reason, it cakes on my oily face whenever I use this using the provided sponge. But when I use this using a powder brush, it looks ok, the sad part is that, it looks just ok. Not good, not bad - - - just ok. I don't think I'll repurchase. There are other powders that deliver satisfactory results.5 months ago
One of them is a product Meghan Markle AND Kate Middleton swear by.
