creasing

not creasing

doesn't settle into creases or break down or anything

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

best coverage i've found in years, light and easy to apply and covers almost every imperfection and pore

- Ulta User

also minimizes my pores even without primer

- Maybelline User

weight

lightweight

the way it glides over your face evenly; the lightweight feel; and the fact that it kept my oily skin in check was enough to keep me happy

- Walgreens User

it is lightweight, smooth, lasts and doesn't cake or look powdery

- Ulta User

blendability

blends well

i have combination skin and this product matches my skin colour very well and blends into it giving such a natural finish

- Maybelline User

it blends well, leaves no streaks and feels luscious

- Walgreens User

texture

smooth

the skin tone is a perfect match, when i applied it i did not see that fake layer of powder, it was like my second skin natural and smooth

- Maybelline User

it made my skin appear smooth and not cakey

- Target User

hydration

hydrating

dried my skin out bad, didn’t blend well so i tried the super stay full coverage- covers the redness/ shine on my face but again dried my skin

- Maybelline User

it was legitimately the best drug store powder (or high end, in my opinion) the superstay powder foundation was too drying and heavy on my skin (and i have oily combo skin

- Maybelline User

staying power

longlasting

its lasts all day and evens out my skin nicely

- Maybelline User

and it lasts all day,just unbelievable, and is more like a cream base and leaves a perfectmatte finis

- Maybelline User

coverage

medium coverage

set it with the setting spray of your choice and you have a nice lightweight, light-medium coverage powder that actually makes your skin feel good and look healthy

- Ulta User

this is an excellent powder foundation and, depending on how you apply it, can have medium to full coverage

It works

Sorry for the long review.... but I have a lot to say about this product. I suffer from terrible adult acne and I've wasted so much time and money trying to get it under control. So when I came across this product one day I decided to try it. Even if it failed at least I would get coverage out of it. As it turns out - it's amazing! The way it glides over your face evenly; the lightweight feel; and the fact that it kept my oily skin in check was enough to keep me happy. After a hard days work it would still be in place with no noticeable streaks. It had remarkable coverage for a powder - and as the days went by I slowly noticed a decrease in concealer use. Unfortunately after I ran out I was unable to make it to the store to purchase more; and that was when I realized how much it kept my acne under control. It wasn't a rebound breakout - It was the same type of acne I had in the same problem areas with the same severity. But now that I wasn't using the powder to treat it, my face slowly began to break out again. So needless to say - I went back and purchased more. I even gifted it to my sister who has the same skin issues I do, and she noticed a change in her complexion immediately. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that when I made it about half way through the compact, the powder began hardening on the surface from the sponge applicator going over it repeatedly (similar to what happens with eye shadows). So I would use something with a hard edge to gently scrape off the top layer then use that broken powder to apply to my skin. That is probably the applicator itself that causes that. So swapping that out for a poof or brush would likely solve that issue. I myself prefer the sponge applicator and just deal with the problem as it arises.

Too dark

Ulta only had up to "Classic Ivory" in store, and it is ridiculously dark, so I picked up the "Porecelian" shade at Wal Mart. Even that is too dark, but it was close enough to use. This caked up my foundation horribly and made my nose look really shiny. I tried using this on bareskin as well, and it still looked heavy and emphasized any dry patches. I am really disappointed in this powder.

Holy Grail Product!

I've been unhappy with my more expensive powders and powder foundations. In the last few months, I've tried a ton of powder foundations and they all were either cakey, or too thick, or they settled in creases, or they had too much "sparkle" in them, or they had some other problem. OR, they were great, but they were expensive and/or they took forever to buff into the skin. So, I tried this powder on a whim and it's GREAT! It's good enough that I can actually use it as a powder foundation, even though it's marketed as just a powder. It covers better, blends better, and goes on more smoothly than Bare Minerals or IT Cosmetics and it's way, waaaay cheaper. It works well with a foundation brush and with the included sponge, so I put it on in the morning with a brush and then I just use the sponge for any touchups throughout the day. I usually only need one small touch up, and only around the areas that get a bit oily. I have combination skin, so the non-oily areas of my skin don't need a touch up at all; this makeup just stays put! Doesn't settle into creases or break down or anything! It also works well with my bronzer and my blush, even though those are from different brands. They all blend beautifully together. And the salicylic acid helps clear breakouts, but doesn't dry out my skin. In the week I've been using it, I've even gotten fewer whiteheads on my nose, which had basically been a life-long problem for me.I'm so glad I found this stuff! This is honestly one of the best makeup products I've ever tried, ever. Not just one of the best skin makeup products, but one of the best make-up products, period. I hope they never discontinue this. « less

BEST FACE POWDER EVER!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK ASAP

The Better Skin collection, powder and BB Cream is the best. It took me years to find it and its perfect. Now it has been discontinued and I am frantic to find a replacement. It works wonders with dry skin and aging skin. I could wear it and not worry about wrinkles and it gave great coverage while looking natural. Now, I am back to finding something new. Seriously, please bring it back!!!
