10-Jun-2014Good for touch ups
Pros:doesn't feel cakey, easy to apply, looks great, skincare benefitsCons:Expensive
I like this powder for touch ups during the day because my skin is very oily. This powder works well with my Light Tan shade of 4n1 powder foundation. Leaves a nice satin finish. Wished this compact came with a mirror and the mosaic colors were more consistent with each compact. Otherwise a good product. I Recommend This Product

I'm a guy so I sweat and produce my oils 9xs more than a female. But balancing act is great and really does help control those oils. I Recommend This Product

Pros:coverage, doesn't feel cakey, easy to apply, lasts all day, looks great, skincare benefits
I have a unique blend of skin color/tones mixing some Cherokee Indian with Middle Eastern gives me a possibility of pink or olive for undertones. I pulled more olive. However, I'm not tan because I live in PA now (was born in FL). So, I tan very easily, but unfortunately with the summer fading into winter (I swear we skip fall), I lose my color and go right to white. It costs me so much in money with finding the right foundation but then I came across PUR and was so excited! Depending on the primer I use, I can actually keep my same shade of foundation (Golden Medium) throughout the year now. This has been that one added extra to add to my must-haves throughout the year! I wasn't sure I'd like this and was so scared of the reviews that it was too light, too dark, etc. Yes, it can be, but I'm finding for me, it depends on my primer. If I use the CC in Medium and put this over, I keep a shade that I should be for summer. If I use the primer in peach, I get a tad lighter and if I go with the green, I get even lighter (primer, foundation and then this). It's amazing that the primer can affect it alone! I wasn't sure this would hold that matte look, but it does, without looking fake. I attached a pic and here's what I have on: Primer in peach/natural, Golden Medium 4-in-1 Foundation and then Balancing Act over top. Spritzed with the Pur Mineral Mist to set and of course, the Big Blink mascara and Game Day shade lip color. I love this and I think it does an excellent job. I really do think it can work for almost any skin tone...but the primer is so important. I've worn this without a foundation and just over the top of primer and it looks fabulous and gives me a porcelain complexion...but for work, I like to make sure I'm set all day so I wear the foundation too. I Recommend This Product

I love this good coverage, nice to use alone or with foundation. I give it 1 star less coz the color a bit too dark for my skin tone even when I use it alone. I Recommend This Product

10-Dec-2012So Glad I Tried It!
Pros:another fabulous pur product!Cons:None
I noticed that my skin, at times, was getting oily underneath the 4-in-1. I went to my local Ulta store to purchase this product. A sales lady there told me that this powder was awful, would look cakey, and that I shouldn't purchase it. I ended up putting it back on the shelf, but picked it up again and bought it anyway. I'm glad that I didn't listen to her. This really controls shine!!!!

Love that this does remove the oil on my t-zone yet adds no additional colour or cakiness to my face.
