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.

I received this as a sample when tarte first came out with it, but didn't like the looks of the white powder. Months later I read some reviews on it and decided to give it a try... It is amazing. A little goes a long way and it really helps my make-up stay on a look good for hours and hours. It does everything tarte says it does. Plus a friend told me to put a little in my hair if my hair felt oily... and that works too, but I would hate to waste it for that!

Best finishing powder I've tried. I was skeptic at first because of the whiteness, but received a sample and am sold. Keeps me matte for hours. A little goes a long way with the buffer - bamboo air brush. I'd say they are a must together. The brush is amazing and gives you the perfect flawless finish. Great investment. I love that Tarte is really thinking about what not to include in their products as well as what is nourishing and good for you. The skin absorbs so much of what you put on it. I've replaced all of my make up with Tarte and am happy with the quality being as good or better than the big names I used before.

I love this powder! It never looks cake-y on my face! Always smooth and lightweight. I don't ever feel like I am wearing makeup. I apply this once in the morning and it lasts all day, no touchups (unless I get sweaty).
