I have this in 02 Soft Neutral and it works really well on top of my foundation. It has a slight bit of pigment so completes your coverage but doesn't give you a patchy or orange hue.
This powder keeps your face matte for several hours and is really smooth to apply - not cakey and easily to blend out if you don't want it on all areas of your face.
The only negatives are it is a little too drying for the under-eye or if you have any patches of dry skin so I tend to just use it in the T-zone, and it is quite expensive compared with the drugstores alternatives. It is really nice but I don't know if it is 100% worth the extra!

I am in my late teens/early 20's with combination, medium tone skin and unknown eyes. My hair is unknown, unknown with unknown texture.
I loved a good pressed powder and can not fault this. It provides good coverage and long lasting. The only reason I haven’t given it a 5* is because I forgot my make up one day and purchased a Maybelline Pressed Powder (Fit Pore) and it is equally as fantastic (I’ve acrually ended up using it more), for a third of the price.

A great powder for my oily skin. I use over liquid foundation as I need more coverage than just a powder. It keeps my make up in place and helps alleviate oiliness. Needs less touching up than other powders I have tried. I am fair skinned and use shade 2-stay neutral. Does not go cakey and leaves a lovely finish. Because of the price I only use on special occasions, nights out or long days

It's really good for setting a full coverage foundation because you don't get that Cakey look. Also good for people with oily skin and just want a little colour. I would buy again but definitely not for someone that likes heavy makeup.
