Best Loose Power Ever!

”I’ve been using this for over a decade and it’s amazing! It’s not chalky or heavy, it’s silky and satiny. I wear it over the original Tinted Moisturizer and it leaves my skin looking healthy and flawless. It works well over any foundation I use but my favorite is to use it over the tinted moisturizer. A little pricey but there’s a lot in the package compared to most other companies. I can’t recommend this enough.”

It's super finely-milled and soft, and has minimal fall out (no more loose powder flying all over the place!). It doesn't keep me matte all day (it lasts a good few hours) but it holds my NARS creamy concealer and Estee Lauder Double Wear well that I don't blot/reapply makeup anymore. Haven't used half the tub even though I've been using it every day for 4 months now.
However it tends to cling on my boyfriend's (fair/warm undertone/mild rosacea, oily skin) dry patches, which emphasizes his pores, and makes him look very cakey. Either avoid if you have really dry skin or hydrate and moisturize before application!
Super worth it!!!! I have oily acne-prone skin and I never experience breakouts (I usually do kasi sa powders that I use before e.g RCMA) when I use this powder alone or to set my foundation. Has coverage ish so apply just the right amount. I've been using this for more than 6 months now and super okay and worth it and will be buying a new one soon yaaaaay <33 months ago
I love this product! It may have a steep price, but it is definitely worth every penny. You also don't need much. A little goes a long way, especially if you aren't necessarily into baking with it. I just tap a bit onto the cap and use a fluffy powder brush to dust it all over my face and it instantly gives me a smooth canvas. It is translucent, so I'm glad it doesn't mess with my face color. I always have a problem of matching powders with my undertone, and they always end up making me look whiter, but this powder doesn't do that. It makes me look smooth and flawless. So worth it.7 months ago
One of the best loose powders there is. There's a reason this has a cult status, and that's because it really performs well. It's translucent and works for a wide range of skintones, it controlls oil very well, and it really makes the skin look so smooth and fine. It also lasts a really long time (unless you use it to bake, in which case, it might not), so it's such a good price for what you get.11 months ago
Was kinda iffy about buying this before because I wasn't sure that it would live up to it's hype and because it's kinda pricey but I'm glad I chose to buy it because it sets your makeup flawlessly!!! My makeup is usually bb cushion, concealer, and this one which makes my skin look flawless <3about 1 year ago
So far the best translucent powder I have every tried. No dupes for this product. I love it because it is translucent and sets everything in place. It may be expensive, but I just can't avoid reaching for it every single day because of how good it is. It doesn't create white casts when taking pictures. Very good for an evening event because it looks perfect in pictures especially when setting it in the undereye.about 1 year ago
