This powder really holds its own. I am a very oily, shiny person, and have to powder often. This powder looks like it will be so light and pale on my skin but it doesn't come out that way. It blends in, soaking up the oil, and making me less shiny. I often find myself reaching for this the most.
Light not cakey.
It's mattefying, not cakey, translucent, gets the job done!
The shine control powder is really smooth and blurring. I really like using it for touch ups throughout the day when my skin starts to get a bit more oily. Blends in really easily but also feels really light on the skin!
I don't like a very dewy look but I am loving the glow I get after using this. I found other finishing or setting powders to be too heavy or too mattifying. Like I said in the title, this helps my natural glow shine through without looking oily or too dewy.
