I have oily skin, and this powder is great at keeping my face matte! The only downside is that I have to be very careful about over-application, or it whites out my face.

Great powder, it does what it is supposed to. I wear it over my foundation to set it and you don't need much at all. The lid does not close as tight as I'd like it to. Luckily, I haven't lost too much of the powder in my makeup bag.

Love the results but hate the packaging. I ordered the loose powder because it was less expensive and there was more product than the pressed powder. I had tried a sample and loved how it set my makeup. I hate trying to get the powder out of the jar though. It is so dusty when I apply it, it is very difficult to not breathe it in. I end up holding my breath for as long as I can. Then I got a sample of the pressed powder and I fell in love even more. After reading the ingredients, I was surprised to find that the loose powder is the only smooth operator powder that contains talc. I really hate talc in my makeup, so I will not purchase the loose powder again but I am excited to try out all the pressed powders in the future.

Love love love this powder!!! I use a CC cream with sunscreen built in and this is the only powder that has been able to take the resulting sheen off without drying my face or making it look whitewashed. Will definitely purchase again!

I love using this for setting my undercircles when I want them to be bright and stay put.

I don't have very oily skin, but I like to use this powder to set any concealer that I might be using and to mattify my nose and chin for pictures. It does the job great!

This powder has stood the true test of time... across continents. In the US, living across 3 different state climates, I did not diligently use this product on top of my liquid foundation daily. Now having moved to the (extremely) humid tropics in Asia, this has been a face-saver! A little goes a long way and I am impressed by how the powder has kept my foundation intact and shine-free for more than 8hrs outdoors daily... longer if I am in airconditioning all day. Minor downside is I have to take more time to exact the right amount with the right brush (can't carry all my brushes when I travel) for too much product will make my face look(not feel) cakey. So in that sense I wish they work on the dispensation of packaging- I guess that's why they came up with the compact version but I didn't like that compact brush, so loose powder still helps me more when I'm not traveling. Overall, worth it.

I love this product. I use it to set my makeup and help control oil. I also don't have to use very much of the product at all. The first Tarte product I ever tried and I am hooked. I've never found anything like it by any other brand.

Counting on this to get me through the hot and humid Ohio summer. I also work in a factory and by the end of the day my makeup usually looks awful. I got this in a sample and used it to set my under eye concealer and at the end of the day that is what still looked good. So, I ordered more to use on my whole face. Here's hoping!

This thing is amazing! I got this as a gift at Sephora and I love it. I apply it over my makeup (over powder and everything) and it sets without me having to retouch. I definitely recommend this.

When you live in a very humid place you need makeup that will stand up to sweating! Tarte is the best line of makeup I have found that accomplishes that. I love this setting powder. It is smooth and it locks in the make up to prevent running or smudging when you sweat. I have repurchased this product many times. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
