i do enjoy this powder for £1.99, gives a tiny bit more coverage but it does lock my makeup in place, works well with any foundation, concealer and if i use any cream/liquid cheek products, i wouldnt say its a must have but for everyday use its a good item to chuck in your bag for work/school/college etc

Perfect for me personally - and so cheap! To be honest, I prefer loose powder .... but since that’s so messy I use this on the go! It mattifies and sets make up. It does all I could want it to, and that’s all I could ask for.
Did I mention it’s soooooo cheap!!!

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, light tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is blonde, combination with fine texture.
I used this powder when my normal one ran out I couldn't get hold of it. It is a good powder and I found it set my face really well however I couldn't find one in the shade translucent and the lightest one I found was ivory. This shade was okay but it was a little dark so this may not be the best for those with really fair skin.

I am in my late teens/early 20's with combination, light tone skin and green eyes. My hair is medium brown, dry with fine texture.
I have to say after purchasing expensive powders ie; Laura mercier, smash box, Dior etc.
That weirdly enough this is actually no different, all it needs to do is set your face. I must say it does that perfectly. It's not chalky and with this a little dab on a brush goes a long way, you wouldn't think collection could live up too high end but honestly I can't tell the difference. I even tryed this on my friend with very oily skin and it mattifyes without clogging, certainly a go too powder!

I am in my late teens with sensitive, fair tone skin and green eyes. My hair is red, combination with normal texture.
I use this powder all the time and i think its great, its very light weight and gives the tiniest bit of coverage, im very pale so i used to get translucent but then i bought that once and it was bright orange on me so now i use ivory and i love it.

I am in my late teens/early 20's with dry, tanned tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is red, combination with normal texture.
This powder was recommended to me by quite a few friends so I decided to try it out. It was nothing like they said. I bought mine in translucent but it was appearing yellowy on my skin. All in all, I didn't like it and will be buying a new powder soon.

This is a good starting powder for people just getting into make-up. It's very cheap and the quality of this product is amazing. It hasn't got the best of coverage, but it's ok to use to set foundation/concealer, however, it does come of quite easily and quickly. Also, I found that my skin would be quite dry and flaky in places (I have combination skin).

This powder is lightweight, works amazing as a setting powder with either brush or sponge application, it keeps you matte when you're starting to get shiny - perfect for touch-ups and hasn't let me down throughout a full day or work. - Recommend for sure!

I am in my mid 20's with combination, light tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is medium brown, combination with normal texture.
This didn't impress me much, it set my foundation but didn't stop any excess oils coming through. I also found that it left me with a very yellow tone, despite my thinking that I had picked a more pink toned powder.

Always go back to this powder, i think i'm on my 8th one!! i buy it in the colour translucent which i find has the least colour as i use it to set my makeup not to add colour to my face. It keeps me mattified for much longer than if i went out without it and it sets my makeup perfectly. the packaging is also very secure. Overall, a simple product that I do not leave the house without!

This product sets your makeup into place and is long lasting without being/getting cakey. Really affordable and also has a great range of shades for all skin tones. The packaging is plastic so can crack easily, so when you will have to be careful when carrying it around in your handbag!

I'm on my third one of these. They are perfect for days where you're going for the natural look and just need a little bit of powder. I would recommend this specifically for young teens who are just starting out with make up; its very affordable but brilliant quality
