Excellent for Baking/Highlighting

I was wondering why I could not achieve the obvious, yet beautiful, highlighted look I have been seeing all over Pinterest and on girls' faces everywhere; then I discovered the answer to my highlighting woes: illuminating setting powder. This is my first illuminating setting powder, and it is awesome. I really like how Cover FX is a cruelty-free company, and they did a great job with the ingredients in this powder because it feels good on the skin and is very non-irritating. I do not use this powder all over my face, (although I think it would be beautiful all over due to the natural-looking glow this product gives off) but rather only on the areas I want highlighted (cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead, chin), and it gives me such a bright and pretty, yet natural, glow. I pair this powder with the Urban Decay setting spray and it stays put all day long. I believe this product would be suitable for all skin types, as it helps with oil control without over-drying. Very blend-able and an overall great illuminating setting powder. Will repurchase. « less

Best Setting Powder!

This setting powder is the best! Hands down! I have dark skin and this powder blends seamlessly into my skin. It is translucent and finely milled, which helps control shine and keeps my makeup in place all day. My skin type is combination. However, during the summer, my face becomes more oily and this powder keeps my face matte! I mostly use it to set my highlight and sometimes all over my face. I have tried a few different setting powders and they all left a white/yellow or orange/red cast on my face. Essentially, they made me look ashy, cakey or too orange. Also, I love the fact that it does not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, talc, fragrance etc. I have sensitive skin and it does not irritate my face at all. I am very glad that I purchased this product. Definitely worth the price. I highly recommend it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Holy Grail Powder!

I hope this powder is made forever! It's truly the best makeup product I own right now.I have fair, dry skin, and finding a finishing powder has always been a challenge. I returned the Too Faced pressed poreless powder, which I found too white and chalky, and picked this up at the Sephora store. WOW!I use it over my Kat Von D lock it foundation by pressing it (it comes with a rather flimsy puff that has actually been doing amazing for me) rather than blending it. My skin has NEVER looked so soft, even, smooth, and flawless. Even though my face is dry, this powder does not look drying. It definitely gives a very matte/airbrushed type of look, and this is NOT really a sheer coverage powder. This is more for a full-face look, though a little goes a long way.Highly highly recommend! I can see this being a great powder for oily skin as well. It seems to have amazing staying power. I think the price point is great too. « less

I absolutely love this stuff. It's a loose powder which can sometimes be very trick to apply, but I sprinkle little amounts at a time into the lid and use my Sephora powder brush (it's in the Antibacterial kit with bronze handles) and it goes on like magic. It makes my skin look so smooth and silky, feels amazing, it's a very sheer color and doesn't discolor my foundation at all! If anything, it IMPROVES the color of my skin and blends even more beautifully than my MUFE Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation. I use a fair amount of powder and this lasted me a long time. It's oil-absorbing, has an instant matte finish, reduces shine, and overall improves the look of my skin. I have very oily and red to combination skin and this worked wonders over my foundation. I got this originally as a deluxe sample, but I will definitely be purchasing! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="900894643140604489-full" data-show="900894643140604489-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

I got this setting powder in medium because I thought it would be good for my dark skin. It helps my makeup stay on longer but that's the only plus. I find it creases and doesn't blend very well. It also leaves me looking a little ashy.
