Sheer Balanced Pressed Powder is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a lot of coverage When I first used this product I wasn't sure whether my brush wasn't picking up enough, whether the colour matched so well that I couldn't see the pigment, or that there was literally NO coverage at all. I started to use a different brush, and use a lot more product to finally see some noticeable product on my skin. It finishes well, and applies better when using a flat paddle or packing brush, rather than a large fluffy one (otherwise there will be a lot of fallout). The formula seems super light and smooth in the casing but becomes a little dusty once on a brush. It's alright for light coverage, but for someone like me who likes a heavy, full face of make up, it just doesn't completely satisfy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it! I've been using this powder over the top of my Nars sheer glow foundation for almost a year now. The refill is cheap, for everyday wear, it covers really well and sets my foundation. I am pretty pale, so other comments about it washing them out, probably, but I'm already like that so it blends well! It's not too thick at summer time and it doesn't sweat off (but I do use a good primer and foundation underneath!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Do It To Yourself The silver compact which is an extra $36 all it is hollow loose piece of useless plastic. The refill disc slides right out. BYS cosmetics would have better coverage and lasting power. Runs out easily. Will not be re-buying ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Rounder Powder Pros: Very finely milled and once blended in, it has leaves a velvety matte finish without any glitter or shimmer, compact is durable and portable - it also contains a mirror and comes a powder puff (it's okay but a brush applies the powder better). It's pretty translucent but if you apply it too heavily, it may lighten your foundation by a shade or so. Cons: Poor shade range, best suited for skin tones no darker than NC/NW 20-35, I recommend the shade 'Light' for those with NC/NW 15-25 (neutral shade that can work on those with warm/cool undertones), not recommended if taking photos with flash because it WILL leave a white cast on the face as it contains silica (third on ingredients list), titanium dioxide and iron oxides. If you have flakey skin, exfoliate or it will highlight them. Tips: + Tapping your brush as opposed to swirling your brush, you can always build up your coverage but you can't remove the excess powder you've applied onto your face plus it won't kick up as much powder leaving you in a dusty mess. + When initially applying the powder, press your brush onto your skin instead of buffing it (or gently buff after pressing it in to blend it) - this way it won't disturb your base as much and leave your skin looking patchy in certain areas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I didn't like this powder at all. Not only did the colour wash my complexion out and make me look really pale (the colour I was recommend was way too light for my skin, whilst the others were way too dark) but my skin looked patchy and uneven. It also didn't help my oily skin at all.
