No, it's not a locking sifter. Powder can go everywhere if you're on the go.

The sifter does not close. The powder gets trapped between the sifter and the lid, but the lid does not leak, unlike some other containers.

No the powder doesn't get trapped because there is a very tight seal betweenthe jar and the actual plastic sifter.

The sifter is open and yes it falls into the space between the sifter and the lid. I think I am going ot get a makeup sponge and cut it to size to hold the powder down.

yes, some powder comes through the holes, but not alot. it easily taps back down through the holes again. the lid is tight so nothing spills out even if it sits in the top section.

Unfortunately the sifter doesn't close. I use a brush with this jar so it's not really a big deal for me - if too much powder gets into the top part I just tap it until most of the powder goes into the bottom section.

There will be product between the sifter and lid if it's knocking around in your bag. You can easily shake it back into the bottom pot before opening.

when you are on the go, the powder get between the sfiter and cover, unless you tap it on the counter or start to use it then it settles for you abck under the shifter. It is fun to use and try out and see if it works for you.

The sifter is removable and the holes are a bit larger. Its is great for tapping the excess powder off of your brush for reuse later. Saves money baby.

based on that measurement I'd say it's about 20 grams (radius^2 x 3.14 x height). I rounded down cos of the thickness of the plastic.

Question
Where can I find a powder puff that will fit in this jar?
Where can I find a powder puff that will fit in this jar? I have a small jar like this but it's Shu Uemura and it came with a small puff. I never use the puff but it helps keep the powder from spilling all over the place when the container is shaken around. It would sure help if I could find one that fits this jar.

Try stretching out a cotton ball to fit. It will keep the powder from over sifting.

If you don't apply powder with a puff, i wouldn't worry about putting on in the jar. If there was a powder puff that fit this jar, it would likely absorb or "eat" the powder you put in the jar. Before open the jar up to touch up my face, a shake it a little bit and let the powder fall through the little holes in the sifter, then i dip a powder brush into it.

The jar is big enough to hold a lot of powder, but the actual circumference of the opening is too small for most little compact applicator sponges. My suggestion if you really want to fit something in there, would be to buy some cheap little round sponges from Sephora Collection and cut them into a smaller circle so it'll fit (with clean scissors, of course).

Honestly though, a lot of powder gets trapped in the very top of it because you have to really work to sift the powder down into the main compartment. I think it would make the sponge really messy. You could just get a brush that has a plastic protector to go over it (like Sephora's I.T. brushes) so that it can be easy to throw in your purse after using (when you put the plastic cap on it it'll help protect your purse from powder coming off of your brush). Good luck!

I've found that even if the powder spills inside, you can still shake it down back through the holes so you only use what you need. I've never had it spill out and there isn't much that comes up through the holes anyway.

I have not seen a small powder puff. I use the cotton pads that look like cotton balls. Those work best and are disposible.

Try putting a large sticker over the top of the sifter part instead. This usually keeps the powder in place. I usually sprinkle a little powder across the sticky part of the sticker first so that it will easily peel off later.

Is this a 10g size jar or another size?
I personally find it helpful to know the size of the jar so I know roughly how much product I can put in it and how well it will fit in my cosmetic case.

Okay, I'm not sure oz. wise but I can give you an idea...

If you know how many oz. of powder are in those Bare Minerals loose eyeshadows, it would probably hold up to three of those. BUT it's hard to get that much powder inside, because you can't just remove the top plastic part and dump the powder in. You have to pour a little in, sift it down into the main compartment, and pour some more in after that. It takes a little while. But I'd say yeah like 3 BE loose eyeshadows worth could be contained in this thing.

I use loreal mineral foundation - which is about .35 oz for a full size jar. I put a little less than half of that into the powder jar and it fits nicely.

Question
can the sifter come out?
So i have the UD primer potion in the vintage/genie bottle. i have heard that product gets trapped in the wave part of the bottle and people have cut them open to get the rest of the product out. i need a jar for the rest of the product when i get it out. so my main question is this looks like the perfect size but is the sifter removable? i don't need the sifter just the jar.

Yes, the sifter does come out of the jar but I think that you'll find that this powder sifter is WAY too big for you UD PP :( It's about 3 inches wide and at least 2 inches deep so you would have a lot of extra space in there

I see now that there are several answers under the previous question: "What size is this jar?" I think the most probable answer is: "there's only one size, and it's about 3/4" tall and 1 1/2" in diameter."

But there are conflicting ones; one person says it's 3" in diameter and 2" deep (under "can the sifter come out?"). I called Sephora and the rep didn't know, but guessed it was eyeshadow size. Don't know why it's such a mystery. Pet peeve of mine I guess, when product dimensions are not easy to find. Thanks for the helpful answers, anyway.
