        This is a great product-I've enjoyed the quality of it, the way the powder blends, the color and how long it lasts through the day. However, unless some price adjustment is made, I will not be purchasing the loose powder and will stick to using the pressed powder. This is singularly due to the cost of the product, since its increased in price due to the decrease in size (currently, the size of the pressed powder is 0.21 ounces and it used to be 1.0 ounce).

        So, I can't make a blanket recommendation of the product. I would recommend if budget is not an issue or if cost of makeup is not really a concern. I couldn't comfortably recommend if budget is a consideration. The cost of the loose power in its current size (0.21 ounces) is 1.8 time (about two times) the cost of the pressed powder.

        Here is the break-down:

        Pressed power: 0.38oz=11g. Cost is $38.00, which comes to approximately $38/11g=$3.45 per gram

        Current-size loose powder: 0.21oz=6g. Cost is $38.00, which comes to approximately $38/6g= $6.33 per gram

        As a reference to the current size:

        Previous-size loose power: 1.0oz=28g. Cost was $38.00, which comes to approximately $38/28g= $1.36 per gram.

        This 4.7 times (approximately 5 times) less expensive than the current size-price offering.

        Read the other way: the current size of loose power is 5x more expensive than the previous size of loose powder.

        About Me Brand Buyer

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        I have been using this powder for years and wouldn't change. I'm not certain why I began with the pale yellow shade, but it works for me. However, I agree with the others reviewers' comments regarding price and problems with getting the last portion of powder to fall through the holes. When I began with the powder years ago, the container was much larger. Why the smaller size and greater expense when it's the same thing? Also, perhaps the holes should be a mite larger to avoid the difficulty in getting the powder through.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        I absolutely loved this when I first used it, but I think I got one that was borderline about to expire because it's smell changed and then started to irritate my skin! But at first it was amazing! Might give it another go because I think this is better then most powders out there.

        Better than the pressed powder

        By 

        from Riverside, CA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        I purchased the Pale Yellow shade. I've been using it for about a month. I find that it works better at setting my eye correct and concealer. I apply an ample amount with a dry sponge then brush off the excess with a fluffy brush. I don't get heavy creasing and my corrector and concealer stay put.

        After a while of using this powder, a disgusting, metallic smell started to come out from the powder. I stopped using it.

        My Mother always told me to put on a happy face...here is the easiest way you can do it.
        This sheer loose powder is light with good coverage. It's long lasting and totally natural looking. It's on my can't live without list.

        Powder Problem

        By 

        from Pearland, TX

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        I agree with others that the Sheer Finish Loose Powder is VERY difficult to get through the tiny holes when you get to the last maybe 1/3 of the powder. At first, it comes out just fine, but then it becomes almost impossible to get it to come through the holes. Definitely disappointing for such a nice product. Love the product, hate how difficult it is to use.

        I love the powder but it is almost impossible to come out. I tried to remove the plastic so that I could get to the powder easier. That was s mistake. The holes in the plastic need to be larger.

        Disappointed in the packaging

        By 

        from Ann Arbor, MI, USA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        At first I loved the fact that I could dust off excess powder and it would all nicely go back into the bottom of the compact through the plastic hole-y cover. I figured out that by turning the container upside-down and giving a couple of gentle shakes I got the perfect amount of powder I needed to apply. However, after two months of using the powder, I could not get any to come out no matter how hard I shook, even although I could see lots of powder sitting in the bottom of the container. So I decided to try to take off the plastic hole-y thing to get to it. Big mistake. It was too tight and when I finally managed to pry it off, a huge cloud of powder exploded all over my clothes and into the sink. Once the dust settled, I could see that the container was still almost half full of powder that I could not get to without creating a total mess. I do like this sheer finish powder because it does almost everything it's advertised to do: it's long-lasting, sets to a nice smooth finish, natural-looking and the shade matches my skin tone pretty well which is miraculous for WOC, and it's oil-free (although I wouldn't say oil-absorbing). However, I am very disappointed in the packaging, especially given the price!

        FLAWLESS LOOK

        By 

        from Houston, TX, USA

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder:

        Finally I have found a face powder that doesn't look like powder. I like a dewy finish so I very lightly tapped a small amount of the powder over my foundation primarily in the T-zone with a large fluffy powder brush. It looks like my face has been airbrushed - I love it and just purchased a second lighter color for fall/winter. I love the way my face looks - not powdery. I trust the Bobbi Brown name and am so glad I did; I've been looking for a soft powder like this for years. This is a very light almost micro powder and just needs to be lightly dusted over your foundation for a flawless look that lasts all day. I live in Texas humidity - and BB Sheer Loose Powder didn't flinch under this heat. My Holy Grail powder. AND it didn't accentuate any lines or wrinkles either.
