Hi! This powder was one of the first Asian beauty products I ever purchased. I'm happy I did, though I won't be repurchasing it. It works well and does everything it claims to, but with a high price and mediocre packaging, I feel like I could probably get a setting powder that works just as well for a lower price.

~ matte-ifys makeup
Scent: No scent at all! (:
I guess my only real complaint is the fact that it feels a bit cheap, especially for the price. The plastic feels light and kind of flimsy, so you don't feel very special using it despite its cuteness.
I would say that this does a good job of setting my makeup and reducing shine. I don't have much a problem with oiliness though, I usually get a bit of a dewy look naturally due to the moisturizer and sunscreen I use under my BB creams lol. ╰( ´◔ ω ◔ `)╯
I haven't experienced any dryness using this powder, which is more a problem with my skin- it also doesn't highlight dry patches, which is definitely a plus! (: As you can see below, it basically smooths my skin out overall. It helps a little bit with covering pores, but not as much as a good primer would.
Also I still have no idea what face to make when taking pics.
Sorry for the bad pics, I don't know a good place to take pictures where I'm at right now. This is after about 8 hours of wear with Holika Holika Peach Girl BB Cream no 1, there's not much shine but for me, but it's all I had to work with ):
I don't know how well you guys can tell, as I applied it fairly lightly. But it gives the makeup an overall 'smoother' finish, reduces shine, makes it look more glowy and less dewy, imo.
- cute packaging
- universal color
- doesn't highlight dry patches
- makes my skin look 'glowy'
- helps cover pores a bit
- applying too much can make you look pale
- might not be good for darker skintones
