This is no miracle product but it does help a with shine a bit. Although it is called 'prep and prime' it is actually meant to be put on AFTER foundation and/or powder. However, I feel that putting on foundation, plus a face powder, plus this powder, is a bit much to put on your face. Especially if you are worrying about breaking out or looking cakey. I do like to use this product alone though, especially if I just put a little moisturizer on and then put the powder on after to keep my face from getting greasy--it definitely works better without having foundation/powder on first. Basically, the more product you put on your face the more likely it is to smudge off... often I will have foundation primer on, foundation, and a setting powder so adding the prime and prep is a LOT of stuff. If you are going to try this product, I suggest using it either just over moisturizer, or use it instead of a translucent or coloured pressed/loose powder. If you use it directly after your foundation it keeps a mattified look for longer!

does this stuff work lik the translucent powder with bare escentuals? cause that stuff is pretty goood. makes your makeup non transferrable.

It does sort of but it mattifies better. I usually mix the translucent Bare Escentuals stuff with the prime and prep to make a mattified/non-transferable finish! When I am done with the setting Bare Escentuals Translucent powder I am just going to stick with the MAC prime and prep I think.
