This is a good setting powder or can be used with only a concealer and this powder. I hate the screw top lid but that is just me. This powder tends to go fast but then again I tend to use a lot since I am oily. But it is relatively cheap so it is no big deal.

Purchased this pressed powder in March for a low price ($11 maybe) at Rite Aid. Had been using a BE warm deep/warm tan foundation as powder with good results, but wanted something less messy.

PRO: The multi-toned mosaic pattern was a huge plus for me since all women but darker ones in my case have a range of color and tone depth to their skin and flat colors usually look yellow, dry, too red etc., etc.

I see five colors from a pinkish-mauve to a rummish cocoa (bear w/me) and it works! I get an even, beautiful, non-streaky application each time, no cakiness, works so that you can pack on color but gives a lovely finish with a light touch. Never used for touch-ups but I'm optimistic about its versatility.

CON: The packaging can be a hell of a lot better, I don't tote it so it's held up for me but it's just cheap plastic, with a screw top lid and a see-through cover that I'm sure will pop out at some point. And though you can fit a sponge or something in the case it didn't come with an applicator!

I'm a big believer in sharing info, so here are ingredients:
