Translucent Mattifying Powder is rated 4.2486 out of 5 by 362.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for lids When I bought this, I had no plans to use it on my face or to use the sponge (based on the reviews). Instead, I thought that it might be a good powder for my lids, and I was right. I use the ELF lid primers, but in the summer, it is always so hard to keep eye makeup from sliding right off, especially when the humidity reaches 100 percent. So this is what I do: First, I use the studio primer on my lids and then a small dot of the hydrating under eye primer (too much and it defeats the purpose). Then I take a flat primer brush and apply this mattifying powder. I wait before applying any shadow, and voila! No creasing, and my eye makeup lasts almost longer than I do. If you have problems keeping your eye makeup on, you should try this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work on a Variety of Skintones As Stated You have to be extremely fair or tan for this. As a black female (darker than Rihanna), the powder leaves such a visible cast on my face. I have to really rub to try to blend it out, which messes up the rest of my makeup and doesn't really work. My face ends up looking dry and ashy. I even bought the tinted one because it looked darker, but nope!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hmmm I bought this product believing that it would help settle my foundation but it didn't. At first it did but after awhile i would take a picture with flash and my face would look white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love! I absolutely LOVE this stuff. It is by far amazing. I am medium skin tone with a very oily T-zone and this takes the oil and shine away with one little swipe! I got mine in translucent and plan on ordering the tinted to see what the fuss is about... In my opinion, translucent could work for anyone fair to medium skin tone, maybe even a little darker? Maybe all of the bad reviews were from others who were thinking the translucent was just for very fair skin and went with the tinted instead? Idk but seriously give it a try, it is my all time go to oil defeater lol! It is only $3 and who knows, you could fall in love like I did! :)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite powder this has got to be the best powder I have ever used. I wear this when I need a powder I know I can rely on especially for extra special or important days. it has such a beautiful, silky finish on my face. It leaves my skin looking, young, clean, fresh and radiant! I've read other reviews on it being too chalky(maybe for darker dry skin???) or to dark and orangey (It is not orangey...maybe darker for very pale skin though). All I can say is...I have very oily light(pale medium is what I consider my skin tone because I am medium toned and never go out in the sun)...and this is perfect for me. I guess everyone's skin is different...I would recommend everyone to give it a try. I find this 10 xs better than other "mattefying" powders that make me look like an orange, badly tanned grease ball:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from still figuring it out I got this in the corrective yellow since I have yellow tone. ?I figure the transparent is too light. ?Well once I got it and opened it up, I was shocked, I looked at the lable to see if I got the wrong color but nope, its yellow. ?But this corrective yellow is soooo light. ?Its like white. ?I tried it after my foundation and I didn't notice a thing becuase there is so less powder for me to pat on. ?tiny powder almost usless. ?Oh well I have to rub really well to get powder but it is too llight, like a ghost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for touch-ups. This powder in translucent works very well for touching up a shiny t-zone, without looking cakey or turning orange. And since I got it during a half-price sale, it's an absolute steal. A good, basic, no-frills product that I will repurchase whether it's on sale or not... my only wish would be that it came with a puff instead of a sponge. That's the only thing that keeps it from getting all five stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used to be a HG! This was my first ever powder! When I first used it by itself, it mattified my skin and made my face feel smooth! I used it religiously until a few weeks after....BAM! Breakouts everywhere! Sadly, I am allergic to the talc in this product. It was then that I snapped out of my daze and realized in certain lighting, it looked cakey and was NOT translucent. The powder is a pale color and made my face look ghostly.I've stopped using this on my ?face. Instead (this is going to sound a little weird), I use this to set my eyebrows in place. After I gel and powder up my brows, I want them in place! This helps really lock in my brows and actually doesn't break me out around my eyebrow area IF I use this sparingly only on my brow hairs and not the skin.All in all, not really a great product. :1
