Honest reviews



It is so sparkly and makes you look extremely tanned, like a fake tan. Horrible look. I had to wash my face completely after putting it on my perfect looking make up.

Big mistake

On the way to work, I realized that I forgot all of my makeup. I had a meeting, so I stopped by a drug store to pick up some powder, lipstick and mascara. CVS didn’t have Coty powder (which is my favorite powder in the world), so I picked this crap up. I am a very light skin redhead, so I chose the lightest color CVS had (fair translucent). The powder didn’t disburse evenly on my face, so I looked like I had a very blotchy tan.

Fake tan powder?

I don’t have pale skin, it’s slightly tan. But I got this translucent light because I didn’t want something that was too dark. So like other people said, yes, it did give my skin an even color. Too bad that color looks like a really bad fake tan. And this was with the second lightest one they have! It’s terrible. And since it’s used, I can’t return it.

Awesome mineral make up for the price

CoverGirl Trublend Minerals Loose Powder is an amazing beauty product. I cannot believe that it’s under ten dollars too! It works just as well and flawlessly as its top competitors, and I highly recommend it. I was a bit hesitant in choosing a color and with the help of’s color match, I decided on the Translucent Light. When I opened the box I was a bit worried that it would be too dark, but I was absolutely wrong! It was just the right color for me, and will work well as I continue developing my sun tan. Either way, it really does blend in super effectively with your skin tone. I love it and will definitely continue to purchase it.

My favorite powder

I’m surprised at the reviews for this product.It’s the best loose powder I’ve been able to find!It coats my skin evenly and leaves it smooth.I have problem skin and its coverage is fine!I recommend this.

Too dark

This is not the seller’s fault but buyers should know that if they truly want “light” they need to purchase the fair shade instead. Aside from being quite heavy, I like the coverage.

Cute product!

Awesome!!! HUGE container, must more than I had expected!! Beautiful pink color, very shiny, so I wouldn’t recommend using it all over your face (Made that mistake once..). It looks like it is bound to last for a REALLY long time!

Not quite what I thought

I was expecting this to be a matte powder but it has some shimmer to it… the misunderstanding might of been due to an over site on my part when reading the product description. Other than that it works well… it is a little dark but I am as fair as they get so I have a very hard time finding a product that matches perfect and this blends well enough. Overall.. great deal and the whole Tru Blend line is wonderful and I will stick with it.

Powder works great!

Powder stays on all day. I love that it came with the puff pad because that is hard to find now a days.

Good powder but doesn’t last long…

I actually really like CoverGirl TruBlend Minerals Loose Powder, and I’ve had a love/hate relationship with it for years. I love the fact that it doesn’t look caked on when I use it, and it actually has very good coverage by itself. If you don’t have many blemishes or you just have some minor skin discoloration, this powder will cover it by itself and you can skip the foundation. The thing I don’t like is that it doesn’t last very long. I find that when I use this powder, I’ll have to reapply/touch-up every hour or two. I’ve used other powders that last for 4+ hours and keep my face looking nice and matte. I would suggest this powder to someone that wants a full coverage powder that is able to touch-up their makeup every couple hours. If you are going out for the night or are going to be out for an extended period of time without being able to touch-up here and there, I’d suggest going with another powder.

Looks orange on fair skin

I bought this to use without foundation. But I’ve tried with and without the foundation. It goes on very uneven and looks orange. I have light skin and Cover Girls products in the same shade the have always matched my skin tone. If this is something you want to try, I would buy it at a store with a color match guarantee.

Helps any one who needs a light power shine control. I hate makeup feel on my face and this is so light it does the job with out me knowing its on !!Light is awesome for those who have freckles like myself

Too shimmery and orange

Well, I guess it could be worse?I picked this up for show choir stage makeup. I had no idea it would be so orange and have SO much shimmer. I don’t need my bronzer to be totally matte, but at least a warning on the packaging about the insane amount of glitter would have been nice.Maybe if your skin tone is super warm, these colors look better, but I have warm skin and it just looks horribly orange if I apply more than one light sweep that you can barely see at all.It’s also messy, but I guess that’s to be expected with a loose powder.I guess it’s good that you get a huge amount in it, but considering that I and apparently many others don’t like it that much, it’s inconvenient. I’ve ended up using it as eyeshadow.The puff thing makes the powder go on unevenly, which is really bad for bronzers especially, but even with a brush it’s sometimes uneven.I don’t recommend this.
