Cosmetic powder containers with powder accumulation management systems are provided to reduce waste and mess related to the loss of cosmetic powder. In general, examples of systems described herein generally include a sifter positioned above the cosmetic powder with apertures configured for bi-directional pass-through of cosmetic powder. In some examples, the sifter is dome-shaped with a concave upper surface. To manage accumulation of cosmetic powder on an upper surface of the sifter, a sweeper projection is provided to collect cosmetic powder on the upper surface and direct the cosmetic powder toward the apertures of the sifter for pass-through back into the container. In this regard, accumulation of cosmetic powder on the upper surface of the sifter is managed, limiting waste and mess during use of the cosmetic powder.
