I prefer to use my brush, I have a very tight flat brush and I think it works much better than the little poof... but I keep the little poof in the travel case for when I travel

I can control the applicaton of the powdereasier using a brush instead of the poof that comes with it; however, the brush stirs up the powder which I feel is wasting the product.

The brush works much better for me. It gives me more precision of application and applies the product more smoothly.

I use a brush in the morning to set my foundation but the pouf works great for touch ups if needed.

a brush can control the amount you put on in an area, so i apply this as a setting powder with a brush in the morning when i do my makeup and will carry it with me for touchups, which i use the poof for. so either way, it'll do what it has to do. just be careful to not get too much on the poof when you're putting it on your face so it isn't noticeable.

I find that pressing on first then using a brush to blend gives me a longer lasting matte look.

answer 7
Using a brush with this product instead of the sponge that it comes with will apply less product to the face and prevent the powder from building up too much on the face and causing the powder to look too heavy on the skin.

Question
Ingredients - talc?
Becca's website and Sephora's website both do not include talc in the ingredients for this blotting powder in translucent. However when I bought it in translucent, talc is listed on the ingredents on the box. So does this blotting powder perfector translucent contain talc or not? Is it not suitable for people who need non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic products?

answer 3
I found the same to be true for the TRANSLUCENT color as well. I purchased it from Sephora.com because at the time I purchased it, Sephora did not list TALC on the ingredient list. Low and behold when I received my item and looked at the ingredient list, it was listed right there on the box. Another reviewer (muplover26) stated that only the TINTED version contains talc and that my review was incorrect. Actually she is incorrect as I never purchased the tinted version. My review was for the translucent and that shade did indeed list talc as the 8th ingredient right on the box.

Note only the Tinted version has talc. The person needs to read more carefully.

This does not add a white cast in photos, However if your darker complected I would be careful because the product can give you a white cast just in general even though the product claims to be 'translucent'. This is best suited for light/medium skins

The Becca Blotting Powder is better for combination to oily skin types. Make Up For Ever's powder will not help control oil and shine as effectively as Becca's Blotting Powder.

I have fair skin, (Alabaster shade in Bobbi Brown's foundation) and use the Translucent shade of this powder. It's absolutely perfect! Blends right in and you can't tell I'm wearing any powder....it controls oil, is NOT cakey, and doesn't turn a darker color after a few hours.
By far this is THE BEST powder for us fair skin beauties!!!

I have fair skin and ordered the lightest color. I likeit because it goes on translusent; I tan sometimes and use this same color over my darker makeup.

How tinted is the darker color? My skin is kinda olive medium but I'm not looking for color

answer 1
the tinted one is maybe comparable to a medium shade in most ranges, however it has a super pink undertone so if you are more yellow or olive toned, the powder can cast a very pink hue on top of your foundation. i'd try the cover fx matte setting powder (loose) or the urban decay de-slick powder if you are more on the golden side (undertone).

I am Hispanic so medium tan. I tried this in the store and the tinted looked like applied red clay to my face. For very dark skin tones I think it would be an awesome seeing powder.
