Rated 4 out of 5 by Controls Shine I had this on my wish list for awhile, and purchased on easy pay. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but am pleasantly surprised by how well it controls the oil and shine on my face and sets my makeup. Before using this, by the end of each work day I had a greasy, shiny t-zone. After using this, I come home from work each day with more of a matte face which I want. That alone makes this worth it for me! I'm not a fan of the brush, it doesn't do much so I use another brush that actually picks up the product. 09-24-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the best I am in my sixties and this is the only finishing powder I have found that does not settle into facial lines and perfectly sets my make-up. Thank you for the prodect. A suggestion - the brush is useless. Lose it and lower the price. Thank you. 06-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feels like cool silk This finishing powder goes on so smooth and has a cool feeling on my skin! I love it doesn't add color, just finishes my makeup. 05-28-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Weird This "powder" is strange. Rather than looking/feeling like a powder, it actually looks/feels like a wafer. The brush is useless, so I tried it with one of my IT brushes. It still didn't work for me. Wishing I had kept the box so I could send it back. 12-27-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Finishing Powder This is a good product and it isn't too white. I would say try it to anyone looking for a polished look. I use it over IT Cosmetics. 12-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Well I have the older form of this product, the loose kind. Just love it. I must say this looks much better in a compact. The loose form gets all over the counter if you make a slip and it also last a long time. Can't wait till I'm finished the the loose kind so I can buy the one in the compact. After applied it looks like you have a "photo finish" My skin looks beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a "photo finish" BTW, I'm no spring chicken, if you know what I mean! You won't lose on this one. 09-20-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this This is the perfect powder for midday, evening touch ups. I love it because it doesn't make your face feel like you have caked something on it and it balances out shine and perks up your look. You can't miss using this as a setting powder (hint a little goes a long way). I put a little over my makeup, or over bronzer, or over regular setting powder. It gives you that wonderful smooth HD effect. I highly recommend this powder. 07-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really nice. Love this. It is truly the perfect powder. Just a bit more room to tuck the brush in and snap closed would be nice however. I highly recommend this. I'd love to see Tarte do their powder blushes without Talc and more like this consistency. 06-20-15
