Loose Face Powder
One star off for packaging
This one of the best loose powders I've used so far, and I've tried some pricey brands but they don't do the job as well as this! I sweep it over my face after I apply my liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer and it does what I bought it to do: it sets my makeup and keeps my face shine-free and matte. I originally tried my friend's loose powder one random day, and I was super surprised when I looked into the bathroom mirror a few hours later: my face was still shine-free! I have a rather oily t-zone, and nothing I've tried so far had managed to keep my face shine-free for that long! I tried it again the next day, and by the end of the day, I had already ordered my very own jar (jar?) and was super excited. It came in today and although the product was as great as I remembered, I am docking one star off for the packaging. I travel a lot, so I can already imagine how inconvenient this would be to bring around with me. You will need to bring your own brush along for application, and the jar explodes when you open it - I've already experienced the burst of excess powder, and I haven't even traveled with it yet. Now that I've finished up the top layer that had come out when I peeled off the protection sticker, I am also not sure how I can get the product out neatly next time, without getting it all over the place. Please TBS, improve the packaging design and make it the 5-star product it should be! I will definitely be purchasing again!

This was the first loose powder I have tried and I love it! I am a shade 3. The coverage isn't awesome but I like to use it to set my liquid foundation or just wear it plain and sort of balance my complexion. I used the pressed powder before, so I don't feel like this is as convenient (you need a brush and that is bulky, takes time, is messy, and it's hard to travel with as the powder leaks out), but I'm happy I tried it! While traveling, I recommend putting one of those flat circular cotton pads in it and it won't explode when you open it.

Great face powder
I like a powder for the face because it's light (not like a liquid foundation), but some powders tend to just sit on the skin - this doesn't! This gives nice coverage to hide little imperfections so it makes the skin look more even, but it looks like you're not wearing anything!

gives a nice Matte finish
I really like this powder. I use it sometimes when I wear too thick of a moisturizer. On those days even with foundation my skin tends to look too shiny. This powder is perfect to fix that. Also, using a powder keeps the foundation lasting a bit longer.
