Nice glow, but a little dark.
If you are fair skinned this may not be the product for you. I found it a little dark, but used it more like a bronzer and found it worked well like that. It really is “luminous” as it says – but combined with sweat from the day it can get a little too shinny if you are oily skinned. Other than that, this is a great product.

Nice Light Powder
As mentioned in a previous review I also ordered a shade darker. I have light/fair skin tone and ordered medium. Perfect shade. I do not wear foundation and just use this to balance my skin. It feels light on your skin and fresh.

I used to wear a liquid foundation with a pat or two of pressed powder over top, just to cut the shine. Now I just use the powder alone and my skin looks so natural and even toned. Definitely one to pop in the purse or makeup bag.

Beautiful finish but pore clogging
I like how this powder looked applied. UNfortunately though it gave me little bumps on my cheeks. I assume it is the talc that was cloggin my pores. I stopped using it and the bumps disappeared.

Love this powder...
I love this pressed powder. I listened to what they said about going a shade darker. I have fair/light skin and went with the medium. It is a perfect color on me. I dust some on with a brush to set my makeup, then pop it in my purse for touch-ups later in the day. It gives a subtle glow and I love it over top of Living Nature’s Illuminating Tint as well. It’s also nice putting things on my face that aren’t full of toxic chemicals. This one is a buy-again for sure.

Great for my sensitive skin!
I love this powder! It has an incredibly subtle light-catching quality. The color vanishes well into my skin, so it wears beautifully. I use it every day, instead of loose powder, to balance out my skin tone. I can use it just over lotion.

My very favorite face powder
This is my favorite pressed powder. I’m not a big makeup person (I don’t use foundation), but I always use powder, and this is my favorite one. The powder is sheer and doesn’t give that much color (which is what I prefer) but there is the slightest sparkle (not disco-ball, but great for that light luminous look) and this is really flattering. I also love that the compact can be refilled. I don’t know what’s up with the picture of the powder – there’s no bottom compartment – but the case is a nice, black matte metal, so it will last through many refills. I would definitely buy this product again, and recommend it!

A-Grade Pressed Powder
Great product. I am critical of pressed powders making my face look too ‘powdery’ or ‘made-up.’ I was pleased to find one that is more natural looking and that is also organic. Powder has a slight iridescent glitter in compact which seemed a bit much at first sight, but once on face it blended nicely and was barely visible. My skin is fair-medium. I use the medium color even in winter to create a little more color on my face. But if the medium color works for my fair-medium skin even in winter, I am guessing the light color is very very pale. Sponge provided is a bit thin, but seems to work well and can always be replaced.
Wear this soft, sheer powder that contains natural reflective properties to give skin a natural glow after applying your foundation or dusted over bare skin for a flattering finish.
