- Sephora User

this powder gives you really great mattifying coverage

- Sephora User

quality

good quality

it is inexpensive and good quality highly recommend to those who want something affordable but worth the cost

- Sephora User

for its price point in quality, i definitely recommend this for anyone

- Sephora User

creasing

not creasing

it's feels amazing plus it has flexmatte technology so basically it doesn't settle into my lines

- Sephora User

she is 62 so she has some wrinkles and it doesn’t settle in lines or look cakey towards the end of the day

- Sephora User

weight

lightweight

this is a lightweight, mediumi-full coverage powder foundation that covers my redness and brown spots without looking chalky or like i'm wearing a mask

- Sephora User

it's lightweight and finishes the look perfectly

- Sephora User

layering

buildable

it covers well, is buildable, and is a perfect match for my skin tone

- Sephora User

it has decent coverage, goes on nice (i don't like heavy makeup), and you can build with it to a certain extent

- Sephora User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i've got very oily skin, i used this with the smash box photo finish pore perfecting primer and my face looks beautiful and smooth all day

- Sephora User

the color selection is great and the powder make my skin look very smooth and minimizes the visibility of my pores (i have large pores)

- Sephora User

staying power

longlasting

i'm loving this powder foundation, it is my first time trying this makeup and its exactly like my previous more expensive brand but this makeup is in my price range and i found an exact color to match my skin tone, it lasts all day and it controls my oily skin from getting too shiny

- Sephora User

i wear it lightly over my foundation to set it and it makes my makeup last all day and gives that extra coverage

- Sephora User

texture

smooth

it makes my face smooth and even toned

- Sephora User

smoothest, softest face powder ever

- Sephora User

hydration

hydrating

i wouldn't reccomend this for anyone with dry/flaky prone skin

- Sephora User

excellenti have tried so many powder foundations and this one is the best worth every pennyi am in love with this ❤️i recommend it to anyone who needs flawless matt finish to cover all dark spots instantly without drying skin

- Sephora User

blendability

blends well

it's soft to touch on my skin and feels light and natural, and yet gives really good coverage and blends perfectly by itself, over my urban and clinique primers, and over my makeup forever foundation

- Sephora User

i find that it blends and covers well (somewhere around medium coverage), and an added bonus for me is that porcelain pink (04) is one of the closest matches for my pink skin tone

- Sephora User

brightness

non brightening

it's super chalky and makes me look ashy

- Sephora User

pores and wrinkles intensily visible, caky, face broke out completely, gave me a dull tired look

- Sephora User

color accuracy

oxidizes

unfortunately, the product gets 1-star due to oxidizing and i really did not like how the product goes on

- Sephora User

eh not that much coverage and oxidized bad on my skin

- Sephora User

coverage

medium coverage

at first it looks powdery but once you give it time to fully melt into your skin it’s amazing and you can build it up to a good medium coverage

- Sephora User

for those of you who just want a light to medium coverage foundation for comfortable wear and easy application, go with this

Full coverage!

I am 44 years old and am getting fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. It is a big struggle to find foundation that doesn't settle into those lines. I don't think it is even possible! With that being said, I love this foundation. I used to use the Sephora Mineral Foundation in the compact, but when they discontinued it, I had to find something else. I tried the Sephora Mattifying, but it has parabens and it really irritated my eyes. This foundation is full coverage with the first swipe of the foam application disk. It stays on longer if you use primer. I used to use the Sephora Perfecting Ultra-smoothing Luminous Primer, but of course they discontinued this too! I bought the new Sephora Beauty Amplifier After Glow Primer and Luminizer and it is working well. I preferred the texture of the former, but what can you do? The new formula is kind of sticky, but it does go on smoothly. I have been using these products together for two weeks and my skin is still clear of blemishes. My makeup stays perfect ALL DAY (7am-11pm) with no shine, no touch-ups needed and no need for added concealer! It does settle into my fine lines a bit, but I don't think that any foundation won't do it!

Hassle-free foundation

About a year ago, I was looking for a new foundation and wanted something that wasn't a hassle to put on and would work well with combination skin while also on a budget. I got recommended this foundation and it's my absolute favorite. It's light-medium coverage depending on how much you put on. I have some discoloration and acne scarring and this covers it right up. It goes on best with a powder brush, but you can also use the little foundation sponge that comes with the compact if you're on the go. This is sooo much easier to use on-the-go than any other foundation I've had. I live in a desert climate and it works fine––I just use a lot of moisturizer underneath. But it works even better when I'm visiting family down south because I don't have to wait ages for my foundation to dry because of the obscene humidity. And it won't melt off your face in the humid heat as long as you touch up with some powder every few hours. « less

one of my ultimate favorite products ever. it’s perfect for a daily natural look. it’s not super heavy on the skin and it makes my concealer look flawless. i like simple products and this is the one for me. i have struggled finding the perfect powder for awhile, most pressed powders give me flash back or dry patches because my skin is super oily except for my nose area. and it works perfect for me.

do not use for dry skin

I thought I was getting a full coverage powder. NOPE! I want to know why Sephora calls this a foundation if there's no coverage. It clung on to all my dry patches. The color also oxidized. Just a big no no in my book

Recommendations for light coverage foundations? I want something for when i don’t feel like doing a full face of makeup, that’s good for combo skin, and just evens out my redness.
