I love this powder. It sets makeup better than anything I have used before. I have the translucent shade and was wary at first but it blends into the colour of your foundation giving a flawless, matte finish. Touch ups with a pressed powder are required but only towards the end of the day and with my combo skin that is to be expected. There is such a lot in the tub too! Fantastic!

Absolutely love this powder. It sets my makeup perfectly and it doesnt shift or transfer. It lasts all day without getting shiny and without having to touch up at all. It also makes my skin look really nice and not cakey at all. Its just as good, if not better than some higher end brands

Great powder! this is just as good as higher end powders and withstands the heat leaving me shine free for most of the day with no touch ups! Its not cakey like some are and the price is reasonable. Really makes my makeup look flawless

This is the best powder I ever had!I tried many brands but none of it pleased me like this one.The coverage is perfect,you can wear it on foundation,on bb cream and even on clean skin.It is coming with a little cushion but I prefer to aply it with a brush for powder.I love it and I warmly recommend to all of you,girls,even when I had another powder from another brand in my cupboard I always had one of these too.Worth the money!!

I have to say I was quite disappointed in this powder. I have no patience to bake my face when I'm wearing makeup I just want something to dab on to concealed areas to set it and make it stand out, this sets it alright but on a face that has the radiant and dewy base that I favour so much I'm just left with these mattified and completely flat eyes that look ridiculous. I worry that perhaps I'm not using them right by not baking and that loose power isn't for me but there should be some loose product that is effortless in it's results.

Loved this powder and actually used it till it ran out, I have normal/spot prone skin and I didn't find this went cakey on me, even when I applied with a soft pad that mine came with. Although I found much better (for me) application with a large powder brush/ kabuki brush

I LOVE this, I've been buying this for years! I've tried other powders over time as well but always go back to this. It suits my combination skin (my t zone gets oily) & I hate having shinny skin & this keeps it Matt for a few hours. I tend to touch it up at lunch time. It's not heavy & has a nice feel on my skin. The colours are also really good. A pot of this lasts a good 4 months

Even though the powder is a loose powder, it doesn't make much mess.It sets quickly and it also gives you a nice glow, also if you put it under your eyes it gives you a bit of a highlight. When you apply the powder I'd recommend using a hard buffing brush to apply it. I use the real techniques

Not the best setting powder I've used. I had the colour match thing done in Boots and the product they actually matched me to was not a great match for my skintone and I ended up looking a bit orange-y. I didn't really enjoy the texture, it was a bit cakey.

Best to set a duey foundation and even out your undereyes if you have dark circles or wrinkles. Leaving it for a few minutes before evening it out allows the powder to set onto your skin. Works well as a contour powder if you get a lighter shade than your skin colour. I would buy this product again and prefer it over mac loose powder as it doesnt become patchy.

I've just newly bought this product and does a great job. I previously had the Mac prep and prime translucent powder however this is just as good. I bake under my eyes and under my contour and the finish is amazing. I would definitely buy this again as its half the price of Mac.

For the amount of product this powder is relatively inexpensive. Under neath the eyes the product creases lots but for highlighting and creating a sharp contour this powder is perfect! The translucent shade is great for fair skin.

This product is mediocre. It adds coverage to spots where your concealer and foundation don't. However the part that let's this powder down is it often gets cakey and patchy. I would only recommend this product if you wanted to look like a Victoria sponge cake.

A good product but not one I find myself reaching for very often, it's lightweight and adds some coverage but can cake over any dry patches on the skin. It comes off quite easy especially if you have oily skin.
