What makes this setting powder so awesome
A setting powder is the finishing touch to a perfect makeup application (like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae!). Batty’s setting powder is not only like the cherry on top, but the chocolate sprinkles too! Here’s why: it doesn’t just “set” your foundation (so it doesn’t budge or slide off mid-day), it helps prevent the reason most of us feel like our makeup needs a touch up before the day is out - excess oil! Batty’s setting powder helps absorb excess oil. And instead of needing to redo your foundation mid-day, especially if you have extra oily skin, just another quick layer or two of Batty’s setting powder will keep your coverage in place and lasting for as long as you need it to!
And the best part is Batty’s setting powder is super light weight, has a silky (but not greasy or gross) feel, and goes on completely sheer! So no matter what shade of foundation you wear, Batty’s setting powder will blend in seamlessly!
Batty’s setting powder can also be worn over tinted moisturizers or simply on makeup free days to help control oil!

In a nutshell:
- absorbs excess oil
- is completely translucent
- extends the life of foundation
- creates a silky feel and look to skin
- provides a matte finish
- contains zinc which is a natural sun blocking ingredient
How to use Batty’s Oil Absorbing Setting Powder
: If you're planning on wearing foundation, eye shadow, etc, apply all of that first.
: Using a kabuki brush, dip the brush into the setting powder
: Tap off excess back into the jar (simply tap the brush once or twice over the jar) or if you’re planning on putting on more than a thin layer of powder on your face, tap off this excess into the inside of the setting powder jar lid.
: Next, dab the brush (with setting powder on it) on the inside of the lid of the setting powder jar
: Swirl the brush around (this “loads the brush” - in other words, deposits the power throughout the brush for an even application
: Once the brush is “loaded”, gently swirl the brush over your face.
: Continue until you’ve covered your whole face and repeat if you want an extra layer of oil absorbing powder. (Or, if you only get oily in your T zone or the sides of your nose, you can skip the rest of your face and just apply the powder to these oil prone areas).
: Repeat throughout the day as needed

This setting powder is amazing! Since using Batty's products, my skin is a lot less oily and after applying my CC cream I give my face a dusting of this powder and I'm good to go! I rarely need to touch it up throughout the day.
Definitely a great setting powder. My skin feels so smooth after application, it's great. I feel like it helps with keeping super oily skin at bay during the course of a normal workday, and this will definitely be part of my daily routine from now on. My only complaint is the jar - I like to put a small amount of powder in the lid, but every time I try to do that, a bunch of it falls in the lid and it gets all over my dresser. I try my best to be careful, but I feel like even a perforated cover of sorts inside would help with not getting as much powder everywhere. However, the product itself is great, even with the mess!
I love this product. I have felt that Batty's mineral make up powder and/or CC cream after the first few hours of wear feels oily on my skin and this setting powder makes it much much better. It gives me a soft, smooth look! I do reapply the setting powder mid day, but its still very worth the buy!
This powder is great as a setting powder for mineral makeup cream or CC cream. I apply it with a Kabuki brush and I'm good to go. Since using Batty's products my skin is significantly less oily and rarely need touch-ups. Another happy customer!
This stuff works great with the primer moisturizer and the whipped cream foundation. I have really oily skin, and this product has been a lifesaver - so many people have commented on how great my skin looks! It's also provided a boost of self-confidence because I don't have to worry all day if my makeup is failing/melting off my face, haha. Definitely worth it!
I can't compare this to other oil absorbing powders as this is my first. I can tell you that it goes on wonderfully and absorbs all the oil on my skin without leaving me looking powdery. It does what it says without all the added chemicals in normal commercial brands. Always makes me wonder why those companies add all that junk. Anyway, this powder is the only kind you will need!
This is the perfect finish to my makeup, and I only need to apply it once during the day!
This is an excellent powder and does what it says. The only problem is that as soon as you twist the cap the powder flies out and you loose so much just from the process of opening it. It would be excellent if they would put one of those plastic guards with the little holes so that only a little of the powder comes out for use. ---------------- Batty's Note: We're in the process of switching our packaging so all our powder makeup products come with a sifter top :)
I have a very oily face, and the powder takes away the oil very quickly! It also is not heavy so your face feels natural.
I liked this powder and although I did find that it helped with oily skin, it only lasted a couple hours for me. I can not apply a lot of it for the white appearance makes my skin look pale. I tried mixing a slight amount into my mineral foundation, which applied less "light" on my skin, but it did not hold the oils at bay as long. I try to use only a very small amount of the product, but I feel that it always makes my skin look lighter and paler than it should. If you have very pale skin (or it is winter and you lack a tan), this product might be ideal for you.
