I am obsessed with this powder! I use it every day to set under my eyes as well as finish my face. Its lightweight feel is so nice on the skin and keeps me matte for hours. Don't be afraid of its white look - it will go on transparent and give the best finish to your skin!

I bought a full size version of this and also got the sample size with my order. Been using it for a few weeks now and ever since I started using this finishing powder on top of my Amazonian Clay 12 hour foundation, I've had to blot my face less throughout the day - it's a great combo for oily skin! It sets and mattifies my makeup but yet creates a soft focus finish which I love.

Softest finishing powder I've ever used! It worked well at keeping the shine down since I tend to get oily as the day goes on. It makes your face feel soo smooth after application as well! Will definitely buy again! I used to use a BareMinerals powder but I'm never going back after trying this product!

This super fine powder glides on perfectly over the tarte foundation. I couldn't be happier with this setting powder. I have oily skin and no matter what setting power I use, I do have to touch up during the day. This by no means the product isn't great, just a fact of life when it comes to my skin.

I got this as a sample in a holiday set. It leaves the skin super smooth and "sets" the foundation or concealer or face powder to keep it in place and lasting long. I feel like it is a little expensive, though. My skin was VERY smooth after applying; but after a few hours that kind of wore off & my makeup look as it usually does. So, over all, it made my makeup last a few extra hours.

I bought this product mainly because it's supposed to benefit your skin, and let me just say wow. No where in the makeup industry have I ever seen a translucent powder that keeps my skin matted and unflakey (that's not a word but its the only thing i can think of to express my happiness for this product). I only need to dust a little of this on my t-zone and I'm set for the day.

This product helps with my oily skin. It doesn't leave my face looking white, and it doesn't settle in creases. I use this every day, with or without foundation.

Love this powder! I have very oily skin and had given up on wearing powder because, after a few hours, it would either be gone or what little was left would end up in goopy piles in my creases. I also love the fact that I do not have to worry about trying to match it to my skin tone. It goes on flawless & I wear it without foundation.

This product is a best seller for a reason! I especially love using it on my oily skin as a treatment,in the summer and in humid environments. I'll put in under BB creams sometimes (planning to try tarte's BB next) and it absorbs the oil without clogging my pore- pretty much every other brand clogs my pores. This has been a life saver! In the winter, a dusting on top keeps everything in place and lets me wear moisturizer without being so shiny

This is by far the best finishing powder. It just takes a little bit to leave my face oil free and looking flawless. Tarte has quickly became my favorite brand of makeup.

I have this setting powder and I do like it on the summer but can't use it to much in winter cuz of my dry skin. It doesn't leave me looking like a ghost nor feels like anything. Works good under my eyes.
