I've been searching for a lightweight loose powder foundation for the summer in Los Angeles that doesn't have the cakey quality that most mineral powders have on me, and this one is close to perfect. It evens out my skintone using a minimum of product, using only a puff (Sephora's for $3 is fine!) to pat it on, and doesn't accentuate my pores at all. It could be a bit more brightening, the color is natural to beige on my light skin, but it's OK for summer, and I use my beloved Stephane Marais powder as a finishing brightener on top, after I apply my blush. Bravo for a natural powder makup that doesn't break the bank!
