Rated 5 out of 5 by lovemymakeup Good product
This is a great finishing powder and absolutely leaves an airbrushed finish. Unlike most loose powders, the way the item was designed allows to get the powder on the top of the container without getting messy and losing product in the process of application. I really appreciate that. I give a shake while the lid is on and the powder gathers at the top. I just swirl my brush and apply. With other powders, i usually have to tip over the container to get the powder onto the lid to then apply which causes a huge mess sometimes. Good amount of product also. I can see this lasting quite a bit, and that alone makes me want to come back and grab more when it's done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trix Can we please get a lighter shade?
I have to echo another reviewer: this is a great powder but I can't wear it every day because the lightest shade is too dark for my skin.
I can pull off the lightest shade of this powder indoors, but as soon as I step into the sunlight the difference in color between my face and neck is really obvious. Thank God for looking at myself in the rear-view mirror. The quality and effectiveness of the powder is outstanding and I recommend it to the not-so-pale. I really wish I could use it.
For the record, I wear Naked Skin in 1.0, which is probably ever-so-slightly warmer than my natural skin tone but looks good on me. I can't imagine anyone who wears 0.5 could use this powder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rustie Just don't drop it.
First, I really love this stuff. This adds a great final touch to my make up routine. However if you plan on traveling with it don't throw out the sticker that covers the sifter, and if you do get some tape or something to cover the holes. I traveled recently and put my makeup bag in my suitcase not really thinking about it and when I opened it the next morning after my flight almost all of my powder was at the top of the container! You can't really get it back to the bottom so I'm just dealing with it until I'm done with it. So just be forewarned if you travel with it, do not throw that sticker out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ca2ct first thing to actually reduce shine
I have tried a number of different primers, foundations, and setting sprays all in hopes of reducing the shine and oiliness of my face. This is the first thing that has actually worked. My face stays matte with practically no need to touch it up throughout the day. It is incredibly easy to put on and a little goes a long way so it should last a while. So glad I finally found this!
In terms of color, I use the dark shade in this powder and an 11 in the Naked liquid foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by adm18 Great powder!
I'm someone who likes my makeup as natural looking as possible. So this was perfect. It makes my skin look smooth and flawless. I've gotten a lot of women in the office asking what skin products I use.The color was great and it still looks good when I use my oil absorbing sheets at lunch to get off the extra shine my skin gets. I have oily skin so I have to make sure that I apply enough of the powder otherwise it just slides off of my face during my daily activities.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maryn Medium Light is a little too orangey
I use 3.5 in the Naked Skin liquid foundation. I purchased this in the color medium light to use as a setting powder. I find that this shade of the loose powder has too much of an orange tinge. I also think that the texture of the powder is slightly gritty and doesn't set well on my skin. I've used Bare Escentuals in the past, so maybe I am used to more of a finely milled, softer powder. I will continue to use this, but will probably not repurchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rashelle Not sure what to say
because I have a love/hate relationship going here with this product. First the love... very silky, it is so fine milled, it is the softest powder I have ever felt. I love the packaging, it makes my make up area look sophisticated. The opening has a few holes, so only a little bit of powder comes out. The hate.....I seem to be getting a cakey foundation with this stuff. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I seem to get better results doing my moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, then the setting spray. When I skip the step of the powder I seem to have better success. But I have only done powder applications a few times, so maybe I need more practice. I just wish UD had an edit button for reviews, so if in the future we change our mind and decide we LOVE something, we can fix the review! Until then I have to give 3 stars because I really am on the fence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ahngella love it, but need lighter shades!
this powder truly creates a flawless finish without looking too cakey, powdery, or matte. it takes away shine while still letting skin glow thru. I work in a restaurant and this powder stands up to a 12 hour shift, which is beyond impressive. my only problem is now that my summer tan is fading, even the lightest shade offered will be too dark for my fair skin. please, help a girl out, I'd love to be able to use this year round!
