Works well..
December 25, 2014
I have never used an oil blocking powder, but this one works well. My skin is pretty clear (of acne and scaring) so I do not use any foundation or concealer. i just moisturize and apply. You can see it works with just a little bit. Makes your face (well at least my face) look like it just cleansed it (fair, clean and dry). I do have to reapply maybe around lunch time, as i can see my t-zone with a little shine. But it's nice, light and really just blends with my skin. Does not look cakey or powdery or anything like that. It came quickly as well and for the work it does, the price is not bad. Good product overall..

Best makeup product for oily skin!
November 11, 2014
I've tried other high-end invisibly finishing powders before and honestly I just don't believe they're formulated with the consideration of darker skin tones. Skin often looks ashy after applying them, but not with this product! My skin is incredibly oily, especially in my t-zone. So I usually apply my moisturizer, primer, foundation and finish with this powder. I love that this powder keeps my foundation from pooling, creasing and shining. I only powder once and my foundation stays pretty good all day (not sure how this holds up in hot, humid weather). The only thing I don't love about this product is the applicator. It comes with a very flat, sponge-y, coarse powder-puff. It's useless in my opinion. So I use my own brush to apply this powder with. Otherwise, this is a great product at a fabulous price-point and best of all it works for women of color!

Love this powdered compact! No color and no ashy look over my Black Opal Stick Foundation, as some other "translucent" powders might create. Very natural looking.

Keeps Oil/Shine Away
January 2, 2013
As soon as I received this product I immediately tried it on. It is very lightweight and takes away any and all signs of oil/shine. It felt like I had nothing on my face. The only reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the sponge to apply the product is not the best.
ProsGreat coverage Eliminates shine/oil Didn't feel caked on Lightweight
ConsThe applicator sponge is not of good quality.

I was surprised ;-)
January 27, 2010
This oil blocking powder works really really well. I was so used to my skin being oily that the first time I tried this product I put WAY to much on the applicator. It dried me out and made me look very matte. I learned from my mistake. So with that said, the next time I used it and every time since, it's been GREAT. This product really sucks up the oils. Just remember, I dab will do ya ;-)
ProsYou only need a little and it does the job, affordable
November 13, 2009
this product is excellent. it even holds well before and during exercise, and all i do is a light touch up! I finally found a product that works for me.
Prosmake sure you purchase the Black Opal Foundation along with this product.
