This is a lovely powder if you’re looking for something breathable and light - it feels really natural and is a great to stop foundation getting oily without looking cakey. I find in the day time I don’t want a heavy look and go for more natural products so this is perfect, the coverage is good despite it being light and it evens out skin tone well, I wouldn’t say it has an overly good coverage but it’s wnough to conceal dark spots and redness. I never look oily though despite it being so light weight and I’d say I’m wearing it for about 8 hours! Also, this might just be me but it smells really nice - almost like perfume which is a nice plus.

Packaging unimaginative and find it heavy and cakes in all the wrong places..... My laughter lines. My mother has used this for years which doesn't give a good image as she is nearly eighty. Pinched some to help cover a breakout on my nose! Uneven coverage and slid off after a few hours. My skin had dry patches and flakes so not a good experience. Prefer my minerals powder which is my usual product.

I love this powder ! I've recently started using it again and I'm never going back !! It offers coverage , and a promise that you won't be oily , it is also amazing for setting your makeup ( I wouldn't recommend for undereye concealer setting) I don't actually own the translucent powder, I have the actual shade and it's worth getting The shade. When applied with a big fluffy brush and distributed evenly it looks amazing !! It's a creamy product and offers a smooth finish !! X

I go for the Translucent version and use it when I've run out of my usual setting powder and it's a great alternative. Use it with a light hand and it's great to set all over the face, just be extra careful under the eye area - if you use a small amount with a big fluffly brush you'll be fine, but use too much and it will start to crease and settle into any fine lines. You do however get a massive amount of product for the price, and it smells super super creamy!

Been using this powder for as long as I can remember. Always go for the translucent as the lighter colours make me look just too pale. Gives lovely coverage, but do agree with another reviewer that it can accentuate any spots/blemishes you may have - seems to cake round them rather than cover. I always buy when it's on the 3 for 2 offer, which seems to be most of the time if you shop around. Beautiful smell which reminds me of the make up my nan used to wear.

I've got Candle Glow and it fits my pale complexion perfectly as far as I can tell.It feel nice and silky on the skin and smells a lot like talcum powder (wich is nice for me).It does look a little cakey in places (I have oily skin) and isn't great if you have acne as it defines the spots.

Good range of shades. I use a dark shade for contouring which applies well and doesn't look patchy on the skin. If tanned I use this powder all over my face. It has a nice finish and sets make up well but only a little should be used because you can easily over use and have powder wayyy too dark for your skin.

I do love this powder because of its texture and light feeling to it and it's lovely smell it has to it makes me enjoy putting it on. However, I get quite dry skin and when I apply this on them certain areas I have to put so much less on because it breaks it out. But besides that the colours and pigments of this product is good.

I would buy this product again although it does have a funny old people smell too it I think, but it has a lovely finish to the skin but is a tad dark so if your using this all over then try get a lighter colour than your skin, would recommend just to try out and see how well it works for you:)

This is ORANGE! Super orange, like it wouldn't match anyone orange. I think people are kidding themselves by saying they use this. However, if it had better shades, this is a nice powder. Affordable, very mattifying and makes your face look almost airbrushed.

This is really good and goes well with a variety of foundations and bronzers of different brands. I'd advise using the translucent one for people with a fair complexion as they are quite dark, but it is brilliant for people with tanned complexions. My only problem with this product is that it isn't as long lasting as others, because although i use it at least once a day, it lasts a month

This powder is the best you can get. It goes well with any skintone. If you have sensitive skin like me then don't worry because it won't effect you, it doesn't me. It doesn't give you a cakey look like most powders or foundations do, it will leave your face looking flawless. Its quite cheap in drugstores also.
