Setting powder is meant to set your makeup and help it last longer. Translucent powder means it won't add any color to your skin, another words, it won't be adding another color over your makeup color.

FROM EXPERRIENCE; I have found them to do the same JOB ... powder is powder.. setting powder doesnt add color to your face.. who would want that? but i do think setting powder is a bit more dull & dry.. as with a translusent powder they seem to have more pearl satin finishes that give you a nice dewy glow * .

Thanks. This is what I was thinking, but wasn't sure. :)

they serve the same purpose. Look for one that is talc free so you don't clog your pores.

I don't use either.  Powder makes your skin look dry and pasty.
