I love this powder, it is a truly unique product. I swapped for this here on MUA. The packaging is great, and you get a TON of product (8g). The pigmentation is pretty sheer, but can be built up. I like using this as a brow highlight with colors it compliments, and also as a cheek highlight. It really compliments MAC Hang Loose blush, which is half pink/ half lilac. It looks natural, yet unique, when not piled on the cheeks.

I only said I would not repurchase because there is already enough product to last a life time!

This is soooo pretty, but definitely a bit over the top for those who like to play it subtle. Unlike a lot of the beauty powders, this has significant pigmentation - a true light mid-tone purple that's not overly blue or pink. The pigmentation is definitely sheer and not like what you'd see in a piggie or a regular blush or anything, but it's close to some of the lesser pigmented shadows. I'd put the color results of this about on par with a light dusting of Beautiful Iris eyeshadow - it won't be OMG IN YOUR FACE PURPLE, but there will most definitely be a delicate yet noticeable lilac hue to your skin. The sparkle factor is where it gets really funky and unique. Thankfully, this isn't huge chunks of glitter that look insanely tacky and get all over the place, but the sparkle is significant enough that it's more than a subtle glow. The official description on the website says the sparkles are violet, but they look varying degrees of purple and silver to me. They're uber-fine and very pretty though - not heavy and overpowering. Basically, this isn't so over the top I'd write it off as costume\stage\clubbing makeup, but it's not something I'd recommend for a conservative work environment either. It's just something lighthearted and fun.
