I bought this powder, in 'Fair' on the strength of the review below and it has YELLOW undertones, not pink which my skin requires. :( Really disappointed at having wasted my money, DON'T buy this if you are looking for pink undertones!

Excellent basic pressed powder: fine, leaves a smooth fine finish, sheer, not drying, not oilifying, no breakouts. Not a huge range of shades, but not bad, and Fair (very pale, but in the pink rather than beinge/yellow/orange end of the spectrum) is perfect for the pale of redhead hue. Unfragranced, and like other products in the range, not tested on animals. And cheap.

Not only that: in performance and end result, this is indistinguishable from my other favourites, Boots No. 7 Perfect Light (Translucent) and the much-lamented old discontinued Clinique Soft Finish and Gentle Light. At least I think they're discontinued - certainly are over here (Ireland). Light enough not to cover up freckles; enough pigment to smooth out discoloration etc.; good match for my pale blue skin with pink/lilac undertone.

Pale people in the UK and Ireland - try it out. It was in the region of EUR 5.00 or thereabouts for the usual 10g. Won't break the bank if it doesn't work for you. (Unlike my recent experiments with Origins pressed powders.)

INGREDIENTS: talc, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, silica, zinc stearate, mica, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, acrylates/stearyl acrylate/dimethicone acrylate copolymer, zeolite, methylparaben, sorbic acid, propylparaben, tetrasodum edta, butylparaben, helianthus annuus, bht, aesculus hippocastum. continued >>
