I'm using the natural shade. The upside is it really mattifies the skin after the application. I'm not crazy about its original container. The pink cover is not that appealing but it does have a big enough mirror that allows you to see a big part of your face. The downside is it doesn't really deliver the 12 hr promise for me. Could be due to the humidity in our country. If you're after the mattifying effect and if you're willing to retouch after three hours or so then you should try this product.5 months ago
When I set my face, I powder just to lock all my liquid products in (concealer, foundation, etc); I don't really bake or overly mattify my face. For day to day looks, I keep things fresh and light, and this powder is what I reach for on regular days. It keeps my oilier parts matte for hours; its grains are finely milled and doesn't cake, and it's just pretty bomb overall. I still have my original compact from my first purchase, so I just buy these refills. Each one can last 2 years, though! Totally a steal5 months ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
