I use this powder, since it's the only one I have but am on the lookout for a good one (mainly for under my eyes to set concealer and lighten it up a bit) I could use a rec! Anyway it's ok for the rest of the face..it is pretty obvious that you aren't going natural..but the worst is that it cakes under the eyes and looks flaky and shows every line

very good powder especially for someone with oily skin, I love dusting it on over foundation.

If there is such a thing as TOO matte, then this product is exactly that! It ends up looking instantly cakey and just TOO powdery for me. I used this to set my Clinique Superbalanced foundation and it just caked and didn't last very long either. I bought it at my Walmart for around $2.50 so I wasn't disappointed in the money I spent on it. Also, it had that baby wipe smell that a lot of Cover Girl powders have and that grossed me out as well...won't buy it again.

It does keep you matte but it also does make your face obvious that you have powder on. I'm trying to find a finishing pressed powder that does not make my face look "powdery", instead give me a more dewy finish. I'm thinking about MAC mineralize skinfinish natural and MAC mineralize skinfinish, but am not sure if the natural also will give me a "powdery" look, and the one without natural, i don't know if i can apply that all over my face or just on my cheeks? If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know, thx!~

----UPDATE----
I repurchased this again because I was on the lookout for a new powder that would last - and I remember liking this. Unfortunately I am VERY disappointed. No matter how lightly I apply this it's VERY obvious I am wearing powder, it emphasizes every hair on my face (which obviously isn't visible otherwise) and looks very powdery. The lasting power is pretty good - but for the finish, it's not worth it. I am returning this as soon as I can - even though it was only $4, it's horrible. The color match is OKAY, I got Transparent & I'm on the lighter side of NC20, more appropriately NC15 I'd say since it is the winter time. I don't recommend this and if you are going to have to buy a drugstore powder I suggest Maybelline Dream Matte...it works much better and looks way more natural!





OLD REVIEW...
I used to use this stuff back in High School, I believe I used the Translucent shade, and wow it's amazing. I was a bit make up retarded back then (hahaha) but this totally saved my ass! I really love the matte look it gave me and it didn't look chalky. Plus it's a STEAL, super inexpensive and great for girls who are just starting out with make up and can't afford the more expensive brands like MAC, Clinique, etc!

This is a great finishing powder, and it works pretty well on its own as well :] when I first started using it it looked cakey JUST on my nose for some reason... but now it seems to work really well, keeps my face matte better than anything else I've used.
Also, peach glow is a perfect match for my pale skin ^^
Packaging isn't that much of an issue for me, doesn't seem to have been destroyed yet :P

So overall i like this product, it has a silky finish too it, its true to its name, so its matte, it claims to minimize pores, but that doesn't really work on me. for almost 4 bucks at walmart, its a good price. the packaging it kinda cheap and bad, i feel lik the top can easily fall off and even though i just bought it, it has some crack around the edges, but i like it so far

Its oil control is average, with light coverage and no strong fragrance (to my nose at least). I buffed it on with a flat top badger brush, but it didn't really sink into my skin- it sat on top and looked powdery. About an hour later, once my skin had produced a bit more oil, the powdery look settled down.

I give this 1 star because it did look ok on, but it seriously broke me out. Within a few hours of putting it on for the 1st time, my chin was covered in white pimples and the rest of my face was red and irritated. Let my skin clam down and tried it again a few days later, just to check. It did exactly the same :(

Summary: Don't use this if you're sensitive to bismuth! But if not, try it, its cheap and it might look less powdery on someone fairer.

I was expecting this to be really bad after buying the new stay matte foundation because i was disappointed with that, but i actually quite like this powder. I have it in silky beige and it gives a nice finish. Great price too, i think i got this for about 3-4 on offer.
Not bad at all.
