Supposedly the best of the best, so I guess all powders just suck? I don't feel that it blurred at all, it looked a bit dry, andddd the RCMA powder looks better. What an underwhelming product. I...

I think this powder is above average, but for the price, it better be. I'm not usually a fan of loose powder (so messy!) but I'm suffering with this one until I use it up. I have the miniature...

This is a great powder. I have the GLOW version. I love how fine the powder is, and I find it very flexible to work with. Agreed it can sometimes look cakey if I over do it, but then I found that a...

I watched Goss Makeup Artist's video on why foundation may oxidize on your face, and one of the possible culprits could be, a coloured loose/setting powder. He carried on about how he always...

I bought the travel size with the puff. Looks dry caked make up face, it didn't matter how lightly I tried to apply or what I put it over. Bonus it broke me out! At 58 I don't get zits very often...
