Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even without the foundation! Like the Lanc�me foundation I wear, I wear this powder to bring it all home. And it's sensational. When I'm on the go running errands, I don't go the whole nine years with my makeup so I just put on the powder and go. I still look fresh faced and great. It doesn't need to be constantly applied. Once in the morning after the foundation, and maybe if I'm off to happy hour again in the afternoon. Perfect powder!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Mattifying Powder! I have a very oily T-Zone area, especially my nose, which gets oily by mid-morning. This mattifying powder seems to be the only product that works well for keeping my nose matte for hours. I apply the powder on my nose as the last step to my makeup routine in the morning before I go to work or step out. By mid-morning, it's not oily or greasy-looking. By late afternoon, it still looks pretty good without the need for a touch-up. I've tried so many mattifying primer lotions and powders that did not work, but this product works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product!!!! I'm 53 years old and have been using Lancôme for a decade now. What I love about this product is that you could use this right after you put on your moisturizer without the foundation. It's perfect when your in a rush and no visible shine whatsoever!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, good stuff! Just started using Lanc�me products and I have to say that I love them. This powder is airy and light and doesn't cake. Pricey, but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Compact with a powder puff The reason for 4 stars is the product used to come in a lighter shade than 100. It was Ivoire or Porcelaine. or Translucent that really was as identified. These shades are limited. and not as good for touch-ups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buying again After years of using drug store make-up, I bought this powder on a whim & love it. It's light, looks natural, and is much better for my oily skin than other make-up. My only complaint is that it doesn't last very long. I use it every day and need to reorder it after about 3 weeks of use. Definitely quality face powder!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! I had finished mine and ordered another because I loved it so much but when my mother tried it she kept it for herself so I have to order another. Looks very natural. You can use it alone or over foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First Powder Okay, so this was my first makeup ever. I was in high school and my mom got me the Nice Makeup. And I used this for years. It's not terrible, but everything slides off my face and I've since found things that cling better. It's good, but it's not perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powder! I was always afraid to try powder because I remember my grandma's being really cakey-looking. This powder doesn't cake! I use a highlighting brush and stipple it on when I apply, and it sets my makeup wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the first time using this product. I really love how it soaks up the oil in my T-zone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome!!! I just bought and tried Lancome Buff Pressed Powder for the first time and absolutely love it. It is the only powder I will ever buy in the future. It isn't heavy looking like most pressed powders, but extremely light weight and adds to the mystery of how to wear makeup without looking "made up". I put my foundation and powder on and it still looks totally fresh and natural 10 hours later. Fabulous, fabulous products!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NICE POWDER FOR COMBINATION SKIN I use this powder for a mid-day touch up as I tend to get oily in the T-Zone. It works very nicely to soak up that excess oil without getting cakey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never purched a top Powder Received assistance from a Macys staff person to learn how to use this product.
