This really does the job! I have two of the loose powder, one I had in my purse before..that's why I'm so glad they made this compact! Makes it easier to take one of my fave tarte products on the go!

The BEST finishing powder I've used! I have tried multiple finishing powders this by far is my favorite, it goes on so smooth and has great staying power. Great way to make lip color last longer by sweeping a tad on the lips after applying lipstick.

This is one of my favorite tarte products. I was already a fan of the loose powder and this is perfect for throwing in your purse. I never want to be without this. Now I can take it any wear without worrying about making a mess.

I have oily skin and am always looking for products that help combat shine (and are portable too). This works amazingly well and is perfect for quick touch-ups on the go. Packaging is sleek and very easy to slip into even the smallest purse. Thanks Tarte!!!

This is a beautiful powder! It goes on like silk and is great for setting my under-eye concealer and mattifying my face in general. The only con is that the included brush is not the greatest tool to use, and it's kind of a bummer that it doesn't fit into the compact for on-the-go use (I don't like carrying huge powder brushes around if I'm taking this in my purse for an evening out). But that's just a minor detail - the product itself is awesome! Try it!

Works perfectly! True to it's name, the product is transparent and it doesn't cake up my makeup when I apply it. I'm not a total fan of the included powder brush but still works fine.

Never leave home with out it. At the first sign of oil I just dust a little on and my face is flawless again. Not chalky or cakey at all. Fantastic for deeper skin tones!!!

I use this to set my Tarte BB cream and it's awesome! Very light, natural, and beautiful. It's very compacted so it's a little difficult to get on the brush but a little does really go a long way.

I love this powder! It is truly mattifying without overdrying the skin, and it does not look chalky or white like other colorless powders. I would highly recommend this product.

I really love this product. I was so excited to see that it came out in a compact. I have been using it in the loose powder and love it but I don't like to take it with me in my purse. The compact is convenient and neat. I love the design of the brush, which is unique. It is a flat soft brush that gently applies the powder to my face without wasting it. I like that the Amazonian powders don't crease on my face, even as the day rolls on, and I live in very warm to hot climate.

I love that this is in a travel-friendly form now. I am happy that I can bring it everywhere with me in my purse without worrying about powder flying everywhere when I open it. The mirror is great as well-- however, I feel that the brush doesn't deliver the powder very well.

I liked this product, but I wasn't in love with it. I have the orignal smooth operator and it works wonderfully. This pressed version is great too, and portable. My only complaint is that on a regular kabuki brush it is hard to actually get the product on the brush. It's very stiffly compacted inside. But with the brush provided with the product, it works perfectly. Overall though, I enjoy it!

I love this product! I have extremely oily skin and I was hoping this product would help keep my face matte. It does an excellent job. I didn't have to blot through my entire shift at work, which has never happened. It doesn't settle or look chalky, and it didn't feel like there is anything on your skin. I love that I can carry the compact around for touchups, just don't forget that there is a brush in there.

i hope this is a new permanent part of the line. i have been hoping smooth operator would come out in a portable form for years, so when I saw this released I was over the moon excited! super sleek packaging and great for on the go touch ups. It took shine away from my combo skin almost instantly after my forehead and cheeks began to look a little too shiny for my likings. thanks for this tarte!
