What the brand says: The invisible anti-shine compact powder for all Bare face beauties! This sexy formula uses revolutionary, tiny, oil-absorbing spheres to remove dreaded shine, leaving you with a soft, matte finish.The anti-shine translucent setting powder gives a natural glow to your face and a flawless, smooth complexion with even coverage.
Packaging: The translucent pressed powder comes in a carton magnetic case characteristic of TheBalm pressed products. It is tiny, comes with a mirror and is travel friendly.
Texture: The powder is very light and does not adhere to the skin at all. It has no binding material I feel as when it is swatched, it flakes away or the powder just disperses. This means the powder simply adheres to the oily areas taking off the shine- smart!
Shade: Translucent powder comes in only one light-translucent shade and will go well on all skin tones.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply brush it using a buffing brush or powder brush on the T-zone and other oily areas of your face. You are done!
I use this after I am done with my makeup on the T-zone as I have combination skin which looks shiny near the nose and chin in hot summers. The powder absolutely has no pigment which is great as it can suit any skin tone. The pressed translucent powder takes away the shine and also prevents it for good 2-3 hours and needs reapplication thereafter. If you have used a highlighter, it maintains the luminescence but reduces the shine caused by oil. The translucent powder does not make the skin super matte, just reduces the shine and I would call this a decent product. It is easy to carry around and use since it has a mirror. Overall, a decent product like I earlier said and definitely a must have if you have oily-combination skin and have to stay out for longer.
