”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.”

This is my HG setting powder. It really is worth it. No scent, no whitecast, not cakey at all - just smooth and finely milled. If only it weren't so expensive! I use this with Hourglass primer and any dewy foundation. The combination works well with my oily skin. This powder is good for baking but also good for no makeup makeup looks.10 months ago
When people say that this is a holy-grail product, I have to agree! It doesn't just live up to the hype, it exceeds it! It takes away any oil or awkward shine from the finished look, plus it keeps it on for hours. I work in front of the camera, and when I look too greasy, I just powder some of this on my face and it refreshes my makeup! The only negative is the amount of product that is wasted because there's no security with the packaging, but that's probably just my fault not being careful! This product is definitely worth your money!over 1 year ago
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 <3almost 2 years 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.about 2 years 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.over 2 years ago
