soft silky and poreless look

This loose powder comes in a container that has holes and does not come with a brush. It is white in colour but you do not have to worry about it, as when applied to the skin it completely blends to your skin and is colorless. Your skin is instantly matified and oil free for hours and the best part is your pores seem to disappear and gives you that perfect shine free poreless look. For this price it works great like big brand face powders like the chanel loose powder.
You do not need a lot, just a little bit of powder does your whole face and is perfect to set your foundation or even over bb cream. After application, this powder makes your skin feel like silky soft and gives that baby skin look. I am loving this product and glad I bought it. Will definitely buy another one. The only downside is its packaging, you have to be very careful with the container, as it can get quite messy, not suitable for travel.


Not suitable to carry around in your bag or for travel, it can get messy, but great finishing powder.

Ideal for

after makeup or even bb cream

All time favourite setting powder!!!

I have always struggled keeping my makeup on, even with several primers/re-application of foundation throughout the day. Keeps my foundation and concealer on ALL day. Only issue is that it's messy, but I'm not complaining :)


Use setting powder for your concealer as well

Ideal for

For people who are in need of a makeup application extention

Thumbs up.

It's cheap and it works. Sets my makeup without looking overly powdered. A light dusting is all you'll need. Your skin feels very silky after application. As for oil control it's ok but nothing spectacular since I have super oily skin.

One thing that I have noticed is that it can get a bit messy because the powder is so fine. It will get everywhere no matter how careful you are about opening and closing the lid. The lid itself catches onto the powder caught in the rim so it can get tricky to screw back on.

Ideal for

Normal to combination skin.

Great, affordable setting powder.

It's a great cheap alternative to the other setting powders out there. As I have darker skin, it does leave a chalky look in photos but in person it is fine. I usually use it when I am wearing makeup for short periods of time as it does not last as long as one would hope.

The packaging is the normal round plastic cover with the holes n the middle but this sometimes leas to too much product coming out and can tend to make a mess.

It has no scent and the actual feel of the powder is quite soft. When on the face, it makes the skin feel soft. It definitely reduces the appearance of oily skin by mattefying.


Tap the brush before applicaton to prevent chalkiness.

Ideal for

Low budget, first time makeup users.

not overly fussed

I probably wouldn't repurchase this product. it is translucent and doesn't give me a white cast however, I find as the day wears on, it turns into a patchy finish. To be fair, this may change depending on the base you wear - for reference I use Garnier BB Cream.

This is my favourite face powder along side my face of Australia one. When I first saw this product it reminded me of white chicks. I very sceptical at first as it was my the first powder I had used and because it was white and had no shade to it. I was scared that it was going to make my skin a lot whiter but it didn't.

This is one of those products I can live without. It makes my face look flawless and makes my foundation look even. It makes my makeup last all day and I find it controls my oils unlike Australis mattifying base. It does my face look slightly whiter but not overly white so it doesn't bother me.

I wouldn't recommend taking this with you to events as its a loose powder and does leave quite a mess.

Couldn't live without it!

Finding this product was purely by chance. I entered into a pharmacy and just needed a powder and this was the first thing i saw. Wasn't sure about how it was going to be quality wise since i never used this brand before, and i'm so happy I found this product. Affordable and gives a great matte finish. Just use a kabuki brush or large power brush and apply it sparingly over your makeup!


Open it carefully! Because it is loose powder, after a few uses, I turned it upside down to get more product through the holes in the packaging. When i opened it, the powder flew all over my clothes!

Ideal for

Liquid and cream foundation users!

I love love LOVE!!! this finishing powder!
I have tried many different powders & this one is by far my favourite! so light & silky! leaves a beautiful velvety feel & if you apply too much you may look a little ghosty as this is a true translucent powder! but not to worry! just lightly breeze over a some bronzer or tonned powder & your all ready to go!
I cannot live without this! highly recommend Australis Ready Set Go finishing Powder (:!!!

Great Product, Great price!

I've used a few finishing powders and havent really been super impressed. They either dont last, go darker through the day or are just too dark for my light skin to begin with. This is truly translucent. It looks like I have nothing on at all and better yet-keeps my.make up in place and shine free! I have oily skin and this still works for me. I'm surprised at the price! So affordable for such a great product. Not a lot is needed so will last a long time too :)
My only issue is because the powder is super fine , every time I open the lid of this some ends up on me or the floor. Will definitely continue to buy though! It's fantastic for the price :)
