I purchased this because i read somewhere that this was a cult favorite and it was excellent so i started using this last month.
1. The scent throws me off a little because it's a little strong and perfume-y. I have a very sensitive sense of smell and i easily sneeze at harsh scents. The powder triggered this a couple of times already but the scent does fade after a few minutes.
2. It doesnt really lock down concealer or makeup so i wouldnt consider this a setting powder. Ive tried the Kat Von D Lock It powder, Banana powder and Laura Mercier powder and those are fantastic. This just helps blur out imperfections but doesnt have any staying power.
It's a good everyday powder but it requires periodic touch ups so economically, the price wont be any different from the brands i mentioned because you'll be using this up way faster than the more expensive ones (it took me over a year to use up the Kat Von D) so in the long run, it wont make much of a difference in budget.
