Olivia Grace says:

I recently bought this product because Emma Pickles talked about it and I absolutely agree with everything you said. Best powder I’ve ever tried.

IcedCupcakes says:

Can someone please fill me in with the ingredients list? I can’t find the ingredients list ANYWHERE. Something’s fishy about that.

Vonda Dover says:

Sounds great!

BadKarmaDad says:

Just a tip, I used the elf powder and had the empty container so I put the NYC in it because it screws on for travel.

eneiraaa says:

Is it good for baking?? (Under eye)

Amanda beauty Cable says:

Love your owl pillow

Izadora Seraphim says:

is this a good product for baking?

Wendy Morales says:

Hello Jessica! Have you tried the Airspun loose powder in translucent? I really want to buy it but I’m split between people saying they love it or absolutely hate it.

lilyashagirl says:

Been Wondering about this one. Between ELF, Sonya K, the one they still Sell our Mothers used and this!!! And didn’t know Walmart Sold it. TFS

Alaine Littlelegs says:

I love this powder so much.  The packaging is its only flaw in my opinion but I can easily repot it if I ever finish off one of my other powders. I’m reaching for this cheapie over Urban Decay Razor Sharp Finishing Powder more often than not.  It’s so good!

Breann Rogers says:

I love how you try most of these out first for a little while and then you have a better idea of how it wears and lasts throughout the day!

Jackie Pettit says:

I’ve been using this since last summer and it is an absolute holy grail for me!

Lisa braxton says:

so….. it won’t come out white on brown skin….?

Shannon Mchenry says:

love this for baking!!!

eilish fitzgerald says:

How did you take off the sifter?

Ms Kate says:

Does this give a white cast in flash photography?

MyMomLife says:

This powder is the best! I’ve used it for years and for me, it always beats out any other powder I’ve tried

MissAmyxo says:

Sold me! Will have to keep my eyes peeled for that now 🙂 I do agree with the packaging all loose powders are unfortunately like that. Oh well 🙂

Halie Maxwell says:

will this last all day? not melt or get greasy? i have super oily skin so powders dont last long on me AT ALL.

Isabel Lewis says:

is this good just over concealer, to set it?

Jasmine Rodriguez says:

does it give a white cast in photos?

naslisntxaij says:

You should’ve did a flashback white cast test. :/

marisathebibliophile says:

I have been using this for two years and I love it so much!! This literally is the only setting powder I’ve found that doesn’t let my oil break through.

shaista naveed says:

Thanks for an honest review this is my first time buying loose powder and I bought this one on my own and you were very helpful

Emma says:

I’m loving the drug store videos!!

Jordan Kinney says:

Is it good for setting your under eye concealer?

Gabrielis Alvarado says:


Izadora Seraphim says:

is this a good product for baking?

Heather Rizzo says:

Do you recommend this for dry skin? And how does it work with dewy foundations?

Maryann Moonbeams says:

I love love this stuff! and the price you can not beat! I paid $2.75 at walmart!

Carla .Frenkel says:

i was wondering about this translucent powder, thanks for doing this.

Naree Kaliyanei Patnoe says:

Would this be able to mattify lipsticks without leaving a white cast? Or does it not set translucent enough?

Sabirah Siddique says:

Will this look white on brown skin?

Samantha Oakley says:

Love your eye make up.. ive been binge watching your videos and havnt found any of doing your eye make. Will you be doing any of those? If you havnt thought about doing a couple please do!!!

Tiffany Johancen says:

jess how do you compare that to the IT Cosmetics pressed powder

Ayiana ahlers says:

I have this powder and I will never where it because it’s full of talcum powder parbens ect which is very bad for your skin and it’s been know to cause cancer!

Noemi Gomez says:

Does this leave a white cast?

Vicky Camarena says:

I bought this powder for $1.99 as a cheap powder until  I could afford to buy a “good” one (more expensive).  I didn’t have high expectations for it and was planning to toss it after I got the good one but end up loving it and using it as my main go to powder. Love it! Good Product

Grace says:

Love the video Jessica! Is new york color cosmetics completely discontinued as a company?? I have not seen any of their displays in walmart, target, kmart, walgreens, cvs, OR rite aid anymore! It’s like they all weird! Was wondering if you have heard anything. They got rid of all their social media as well. 

Daniela Gonzalez says:

Does it have flash back?
