I like this powder. It gives a nice amount of coverage. It's not quite the right shade for me--a little too pink. It also runs a little dark. But my main issue is that it just doesn't do enough to keep me matte. I find that I have to reapply constantly. This would probably work better for someone with normal to dry skin.

Love this powder. Provides light coverage, helps with shine and blends easily. I do prefer to use a brush instead of the sponge.

I use this everyday and my skin has definitely improved after switching from drugstore products to this. It is more of a lighter coverage, but if I need to, I'll use the concealer and then this on top.

The only thing I wish this had was an SPF 30. Maybe in the future Tarte?

My color is medium in the winter months and tan in the warm time of the year. I love this because I use a really fluffy brush, tap it in the product just to get a bit, and dust it over my face. It's light weight and doesn't look or feel heavy.

Very nice powder. Tarte recommends the Buffy Bamboo powder brush to go with it. the brush is great but is a bit too fluffy to get a good bit of the powder on the brush. I wish i would have tried the bamboo foundation brush instead. I use it over the tinted moisturizer so the fluffy brush isn't bad but if you are looking for more coverage I would definitely try the foundation brush. Good product but nothing out of this world.

It works okay, but it doesn't apply as evenly as I would like, and tends to build up and cake in areas. I have tried applying it with different tools, alone with BB, foundation, just primer, and I just can't make myself like it. I will use it to dab on if I am getting photos done as it does make anything too shiny on my skin get in check but for everyday or even special event use - its just not for me.

I think maybe it's just too heavy -- it does have alot of coverage compared to any other powder I have tried. I am a avid TARTE fan so this came as a surprise to me to not care for something... If you want a full coverage heavier powder and can figure out the blending of it, its probably for you. If your looking for a quick versatile powder I think there might be better products... it by far isn't a bad product it's just not one I like.

I love this in walnut 14. Its perfect for my skin tone and there is no mess like with loose powder. I really wish you sold re-fills. The price is pretty high and I imagine I am paying quite a bit for the pretty quilted packaging which will just end up getting thrown into a landfill rather than re-used.

I love this powder! It's super soft & blends really well. Also, unless you have a seriously heavy hand, it never looks cakey or powdery. It's light coverage, which is fine for me as it controls my shine and blurs any imperfections. I can't wait to see how it looks when I use it with the CC primer!

Love this powder I bought one 6 months ago and its the best powder I have ever used! It just makes my skin look so even.
And controls my oily skin throughout the day. I will never go back to drugstore powders ever again

I love to pair this with a BB creme, I have oily combination skin and this work wonders helping to control my oily skin. I also like to put this under AND over a BB creme to get a little more full coverage but still feels light.

Don't ever get rid of this press powder or I'll cry. I have used everything and all the expensive brands, this is the best. Great for someone with oily skin like mine and sheer to medium coverage. Looks like I'm not wearing make up at all. If someone thinks this is not enough coverage you can use the other Tarte foundations that provides full coverage but this is great the way it is. If Tarte wants to turn this press powder into a full coverage, please make a different press powder don't try to fix something that is not broken.

I really like this product when worn on its own or over a light coverage product such as the CC cream. However, one caveat- if you put it over a fuller coverage foundation, it can start look a bit "cakey" after an hour or so. I think you really have to use a light hand with this.

This powder is great. It does not have very buildable coverage without looking too powdery. However, it is great for use as light coverage over primer, a finishing powder, and for touch ups. I use it most of the time with the buffy bamboo face powder brush, unless I want a heavier coverage (then I use the application sponge). I don't like that the sponge is in the same compartment as the powder.

I really like this powder. Its the only powder I own now. The best part about it is that there are no harmful chemicals in it. The worst thing is the price, but I guess you have to pay for no chemicals. I would buy this product again but probably wait for a sale or discount code.
