I got a small travel size version of this product in a NYX gift set, it came in the shade translucent. I use this to set my entire face and I’ve found it is a light powder that sets well and doesn’t leave my skin looking cakey.

Great product, so versatile. I personally love using this over concealer it really brightens up the under eye area without caking all day. Another great use is over eye shadow primer, again it sets the primer in place,brightens and helps shadows blend more easily. Deffo recommend for a great quality drugstore pressed setting powder!

I love this product. It really is great for the money and gives an amazing finish. It isn't as good as the Laure Mercier Powder but it really is well priced if you don't want to spend over £20 on one product

I really enjoy using this powder. I have very oily skin and this managed to stop oils from peeping through for most of the day - which is very impressive. Doesn't look cakey on the skin at all and feels very light weight.

I absolutely love this powder. The matte finish gives me a radiant glow. My skin feels amazing when I have this on. At first when I used it under my eyes it cracked but when I applied a good under-eye corrector and conclearer first, this was no longer an issue. This is the best powder I've ever used

I don't dislike this product but at the same time I wouldn't buy it again and I definitely wouldn't rave about it. Its a good setting powder for your face to keep your foundation in place but I found it a bit cakey, that might be just me? Also I find it creases under my eyes when I use it to set concealer. Again this might be just me but I personally wouldn't buy it again!

I am in my late teens/early 20's with sensitive, light tone skin and green eyes. My hair is black, dry with normal texture.
I found this powder awful, as soon as I opened it I had a big dust cloud, I tried to use it for baking, it left a chalky finish. It doesn't sit right on my skin, I have oily skin to dry skin and I found it just highlights dry patches and isn't long wearing.

I used to have the Rimmer stay matte powder but then I discovered this. It is amazing! I have it in the translucent shade and I use it to 'bake' and set my foundation under my eyes, on my chin and nose! This product coupled with the Nyx shine killer primer is so good for keeping foundation in place all day!!

Love this product & NYX in general! First off, great value products at drugstore prices. Secondly, this powder is so great for setting foundation and concealer and have always found it helps my make up last through the day. Would really recommend this, or alternatively the NYX loose setting powder.

In love with this powder in the banana shade for setting undereye concealer! It helps to brighten the area and counteract dark circles and dullness. The formula is soft and smooth and helps to prevent concealer caking or creasing. I reach for this just as much as the banana shade in my Kat von Dee shade and light palette. It's a great option for a high street banana powder.
