Really not bad

It's finely milled and has a very faint scent - faint enough that you may not even notice it. I'm an NC25/30 MAC and I like the shade of this powder (original beige) because it doesn't further lighten my complexion with full makeup on. It also helps in keeping my makeup looking fresh and set as it controls oil. It's also good to note that it does indeed harness light to soften features and appearance of flaws. It's a bit pricey for me since I can get a Laura Mercier tub for the same price, but this powder gives that glow we so love. Try it.

Tumbs up!

Love love this powder. Its so easy to apply and the container is so cute! I have bothe the small and big size! This specially is perfect for travel size! But i dont like that fact that my T zone are gets oily after just a few hours. Well thats mainly because i too have oily t-zone but over all this powder is really good! And a little product goes a long way! It took me 3-4 months to finish the small one and 6-12 months for he big one :)

doesnt give flat matte finish but brightens complexion while reducing sebum

I've been eyeing this powder for years as I heard many celebrities were using this powder. But they weren't locally available before and one deals site offered a dupe of this one which also has "Theatrical Powder" on its cover and is only 1/3 of Palgantong's price but it didn't deliver I still got oil on my face just after lunch and I had to blot a lot of times. Good thing they made the real thing available here on BeautyMNL and I was able to buy this on sale last month. Even though it's almost the same price as high end American or European brands, this does its job really well and you don't need a lot of powder since I only use this as a finishing powder to set my liquid foundation or bb cream. This is worth ebery peso you spend on it. Plus it just doesn't give you a matte finish but it somehow brightens your complexion. Maybe it's called theatrical powder coz it gives you a bright glow like that of a star.

Matte finish all the way

This product piqued my interest first when I stumbled upon a blog's review about a foundation. The author used this powder after the foundation and so I was impressed. I search for it here, and yay. Clicked "add to cart" right away, because why not? Using it as a finishing powder feels amazing and it keeps my oily monstrosity away for a long time. Using it alone is great as well. It feels light and my skin can breathe. I don't have that much confidence to go out without foundation sometimes though, mainly because I suffer anxiety. But if there's anyone out there who loves to rock a #nomakeup look, then this right here should be considered.

Most powders fade on my skin and don't keep the oiliness at bay for long. With this one, though, I found that I can go without retouching for a whole day! The powder is finely milled, and it doesn't cake on my face or cling on to dry patches like other powders do. In fact, this seems to blur my pores and makes my face look smoother. A little goes a long way too, so although this may seem pricey for a powder, I believe it's worth every centavo you pay for it.

Mattifying, really long lasting, but it's pink so I highly recommend using it for under the eyes because our face is usually yellow compared to the bags that we have to combat using a more salmon toned powder. Nonetheless its super silky and soft on the skin and oil control is nice too!

This is a great finishing powder that I sometimes use to get rid of all the extra shine on my face without actually using a ton of make up on my face. I like how the powder brushes off all the oiliness on my face in a swipe. It mattifying power lasts almost all day too.

Whenever we have a show, I bust out this baby and enjoy the softness and the feel of silk on my skin. I prefer this over Ben Nye mainly because of the packaging. Good concealing properties as well, but what I love love love this powder because of the effect it gives whenever I'm exposed to stage lights and I must admit I look pretty good photographed. SUPER FINELY MILLED, I feel like a cloud princess whenever I dust this on my face because of the cloud of powder that I'm in. Kinda messy to use, but I still love it. STAPLE powder.

Miracle powder

I work mostly in the community and the heat and dust are so harsh i usually look like a haggard witch by lunchtime. Like seriously. I use a kabuki brush to apply the powder on my face and was amazed that my skin is almost still shine free in the afternoon. The best part is that after sweating and producing some oil, my face looks luminous and dewy that i can still skip retouching for an hour or two. Will definitely purchase ahain once I'm out. I wonder if this has a compact version though. For that will be easier to carry around in my purse.

Thumbs Up!

I've learned about this when I first saw an artist's post that she uses this. I hurriedly bought one because I have read so many good reviews and it did not fail my expectations. I used this as a setting powder and it gives me an instant glow especially when light reflects on my face.

Perfect-looking skin!

learned about this thru a friend and I got this in the shade Original Beige. I use this to set my BB Cream and it really helps make my face look more radiant. It doesn't make my skin look flat like most oil-absorbing powders in the market. It has a nice satin finish that makes my skin look perfect every time.

K-Pop Powder

I bought this to look like my favorite K-Pop artists :). Well, it didn't work out that way, but this powder works better than most. It's very finely milled and the color is very natural. It also lasts a very long time. Definitely a good buy!

Just OK.

It's a really finely milled and lightweight powder that's really easy to control and make you not end up looking whitish despite being a white powder. I find that it gives me a slightly satin finish instead of a completely matte look and I actually really like it because it gives my skin this healthy glow to it. Locally, the price is like x2 to actual worth and I think it's too much. Overall, great product.

A must try

I am really enjoying this finishing powder after hearing a lot of raves about the product and its brand. I use BB creams and foundations and on times I put concealer, I prefer to use this to set it. It gives my concealers a fair finish. It has a bit of sheen so it makes the skin appear "glowy" unlike the typical matte powders that leaves skin looking so flat. It is a must try.

Two (Powders) Is Better Than One

Great if you have oily and already flawless skin. Its powder is very fine and it absorbs the oil immediately so no need to pile on too much. Like the other reviews here, too, I'd give it credit for brightening up my complexion. However, the original beige color seems to sit differently on my face. It appears to be more white-pinkish in color rather than the nude-beige I expected which usually goes with my skin's yellow undertones. Another problem I had with it is the way it would somehow work against my concealer. When I pile it on top, the concealer seems to melt away unlike the other powders I've used before which just sets it. It can appear too matte and flat on the face too even with little amount used. What I do is go through my usual primer-foundation-concealer regimen then set it with this powder and finally, finish off with the current loose powder I'm using (L'Oreal True Match Mineral in Light Ivory) to reduce the pinkish shade it leaves on my face. The L'Oreal loose powder I'm using is not available in the Philippine market yet (I've only seen it in the US so far) so shout out to BeautyMNL, hope you can bring in this product, too! All in all, it gives a "lift" on my face as compared to when I was using only the L'Oreal powder. However, on its own, I wouldn't use it.

Worth the purchase

I must have a REALLY oily face, because this one can only keep the grease at by at around three hours. Not holding it against the product, I just think my face is a grease machine. It still scores points for being finely milled, and applying translucent on my face. I also like that I don't need to use a lot of product to cover my face as a setting powder.

everything is perfect except the packaging/container - the powder tends to spill, I brought it to one of my gigs and the powder was spilling from the back of the container. not cool. but the quality if the powder is really smooth and great. I had to repot - bought several containers to transfer the powders to avoid wasting it.
