Undetectable Loose Powder Colorless
Undetectable Loose Powder Colorless works well to set makeup, particularly for oily skin. The finely-milled, loose powder has silky feel that glides evenly over skin, stopping oily shine in its tracks. It also minimizes the appearance of pores and other subtle imperfections.
We'd recommend skipping the included powder puff (which can add too much powder) in lieu of a powder or blending brush. Although this goes on very sheer, we wouldn’t quite describe it as totally colorless, as it can leave a slight cast if applied too heavily on deeper skin tones.
As with any loose powder, application can be a bit messy and spilling may occur if kept in your makeup bag. Otherwise, if you’re looking for setting powder that is practically colorless, Undetectable Loose Powder Colorless is an excellent and inexpensive, fragrance-free option to consider.

Sonia Kashuk At-A-Glance
Strengths: Affordable and widely available (though exclusive to Target stores); good makeup remover; the makeup is still the star attraction, with impressive options for foundation, powder, blush, lip color, eyeliner and especially makeup brushes.
Weaknesses: The concealers, eye pencil, and brow shapers are a letdown; the makeup palettes may seem convenient, but several of the included products perform poorly.
Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.
Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.
Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.
