A MUST for oily skin in hot and humid climate.

I recently moved to NC and it’s hot and humid all the time. I have very oily skin (the entire face not just the T zone). Anyone who lives down south knows that foundation is a challenge because it melts off your face in the heat. I did some research and powder is the way to go for oily skin, do not go with liquid foundation.

I’m naturally tan so I bought the 220 (natural Beige) shade. I originally bought the liquid foundation but returned it because after 8 hours outside my face was a shiny disaster. I put the powder to the test: I went outside and did manual labor and sweat my butt off, I couldn’t believe how well it controlled the oil and shine, my savior!!! Even if you have normal or combination skin still consider powder in the summer time trust me.

The shade matched my skin tone to perfection it disappears and provides light to medium coverage. It looks more natural than liquid because it doesn’t cover your actual skin but blends in and covers redness. I had multiple people say they couldn’t tell I was wearing makeup. It’s great for oily skin and if you have large pores it covers that up to.

I also highly recommend buying a moisturizer with spf designed just for oily skin, don’t use liquid foundation on top of your moisturizer just use the powder and you’ll see a big difference in terms of oil and shine control. Wow I’m sold and hooked!

Not for me

The one redeeming factor about this powder is the Porcelain color is a perfect match for fair skin that has yellow undertones. Other than that, I tried this powder a few times with the matching foundation, and hated it every time. Now, my skin tends to be drier during winter and this stuff is supposed to be for normal to oily skin. So it could be that it just wasn’t the right formula for my skin type. But either way, the coverage was not good, both foundation and powder clung to every little dry spot no matter how moisturized my skin was, and my face was far from matte and poreless. I do not recommend this product to anyone who has even the slightest bit of dryness to their skin, nor to someone who likes good coverage.

Great dupe for Huda Beauty

Great coverage and soft look to it

Goes on so smooth! Makes my base look flawless


KaylaBM. from Chicago, IL

Super good powder! I actually prefer this over loose setting powder for all over. It didn’t make my face cakey. It looked like a filter over my face. I can’t see any texture or anything, just a super buttery smooth powder. Get it, it’s bomb

Pleasantly surprised

Cheap and good as a powder foundation!
I have oily, cystic acne prone skin and PIE marks. This powder gives high light coverage-low medium for my imperfect skin. You can still see my acne and PIE marks, but they’re not so in your face with this powder. Redness around my nose creases is medium coverage though. If I spot conceal before hand, I can get solid medium coverage with a natural finish. Honestly this works just as good as bareminerals or other powder foundations do for me. They can never give me the coverage liquids can and sometimes you just want a little something for coverage to head out the door. It holds up great too! Doesn’t keep me matte at all, but it doesn’t break down on me or get cakey. Works great for touching up when I’m oily too, without any caking. I really it!

Love this powder

I love this powder. I use it every day to set my makeup or touch it up. I’ve been using it for the past few years and it’s still my go to. Definitely worth its price as well.

Perfect for my oily skin


Ashley H from Tampa florida

I love this stuff! I don’t really like wearing liquid foundation because I have VERY oily skin and it shows all the pores in my face and is just too heavy for me. With this powder, all I do is moisturize, spot treat, and use this powder and HOLY COW! It makes my face look so smooth. It absorbs oil on my face throughout the day to leave a nice glow. It’s very light and isn’t cakey, even with applying for touch-ups throughout the day. My holy grail and I’m so happy I found this.

Good Powder


Kelli from New York

I use it as a setting powder with the fit me dewy foundation. Helps it last all day. On it’s own it’s an ok powder.



Anggg from TX

This powder makes my face itch like no other. I tried and tried but no matter what it made my face feel uncomfortably itchy, mind you, no rash or breakouts, guessing it’s the perlite in it. Perlite is a volcanic glass used commonly used as potting soil. Google it

Great powder – stays on, smooth, not cakey


ofcmlee from AZ

I like this powder! it goes on smooth, doesn’t look cakey

Good color but don’t like case.


Louise from Columbia, SC

Hard to get the powder part flipped up, get out applicator, apply the lift up again to put it back. Case is small.

new holy grail


ashlyn:) from hi

this cuts my makeup routine time in half! i used to have to do a whole base now i can get almost all the coverage i got then with this one product! also really helps to control the greasiness my spf leaves in the morning

Not all its cracked up to be


Amie from WA

Very cake
Looked obvious


‍♀️ from nys.

i thought i was gonna love this bc i loved the foundation and concealer but the translucent one had so much flashback ‍♀️

Works great


Willis from Grand Junction, CO

I love it as a setting powder; all over face. Good for a quick makeup day



Ari from WV

Great powder if your on a budget. The translucent does well as a setting powder for my concealer. It’s probably not the most fancy thing on the market but it does the job.

Best powder!


BA from OHIO

I’ve been using this powder forever. It’s so amazing and makes the skin look so soft. Does not emphasize any texture at all. Get it!!

Helps with my dark under eye


Veronica from Stanton

I had no intentions of buying this at all but bought it spur of the moment. I’m so glad I did. It was a great buy! I put it on top of my concealer to cover the darkness under my eyes and it does an amazing job!

Fast makeup routine


Momof3plus from Rockford, IL

No need for a liquid base, the coverage is fine, by itself. Wide variety of shades available.

The only powder I need!


Felicity from New Mexico

Hands down the best power I have ever found. It keeps me matte all day and I’m an oily skin girl. This doesn’t sit in my fine lines and sets concealer perfectly.

First time buy and I would purchase again


Breanna from Michigan

Good and affordable powder to set foundation with or help with shine throughout the day.

My all time favorite powder


Teshy from USA

This is the best powder! It’s natural on the skin, non-cakey, and light weight. It’s great for setting makeup, lr just to smooth your skin. I don’t even set it sometimes. It’s really beautiful. I haven’t found any other powder that is as beautiful on the skin as this—high end or drug store. I only really use pressed powders, as it’s way more quicker and compatible.
For reference, I’m Fenty 385/390, Nars Caracas, Milani 10 Golden Tan (in the winter only, or mixed w Fenty 390) and I use Toffee. It’s slightly warm, so in the winter it can be tooo warm, but it’s so beautiful lol. The shade lighter seems too light..



lex from United States

Amazing product super nice !!!!!

Even coverage


Tan from New Mexico

Even, beautiful coverage that doesn’t cake. I wore this over the fit me matte + poreless foundation and they complement each other so well. It was great staying power and does not break the bank. Overall, I am impressed.
