This powder is giving more expensive brands a run for their money.
First, it does give an impression that the skin is poreless. The coverage is light to medium and gives a slight blurring effect. I love the smooth feel and how it sets my concealer (which is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer). The shade Natural Buff matches my summer skin perfectly.
Second, the powder applies flawlessly and does not cake throughout the day. In fact, i think it stays on for more than 8 hours, from the time i leave the house until i get back from the office. And a little goes a long way too.
Third, it's cheap and will last a long time. For sanitary reasons though, i replace the sponge every month but the sponges are a cheaper alternative than buying new pressed powders that dont perform as well every so often.
Finally, it's not heavy on the face. You barely feel you have makeup on so it doesnt seem like your pores are getting clogged. My skin can still breathe despite the layer of powder on my face.
This has always been my favorite drug store brand and did not disappoint with this.
