A friend of mine with dry skin recommended this powder to me, she claim it works for her. but it doesnt work for me at all. I got oily skin - the powder turn cakey really fast on me (1 hour) coverage was unatural and looks artificially thick. I give up after 2 days.
I used to use this powder foundation from Estee Lauder last year. I purchased this because it was recommended by the sales lady from Estee Lauder. It is ok for my opinion. Good coverage and also oil-controlling. It doesn't get cakey but the problem I got with this is that the shades of Cyber White Ex's powder foundations are too light for me. I am an NC30 for MAC and I don't have a suitable color for this powder foundation line from Estee Lauder.
Also, I noticed that besides the whitening effect of this powder, all of the mentioned pluses from this product can be found from a drugstore brand cosmetics. I have a Maybelline Angelfit Powder Foundation and it's almost the same as this powder foundation from Estee Lauder minus the whitening.
For my opinion, the price is not reasonable at all and I'm not going to repurchase this product again. Anyone in here needs the compact?! I have one that I'm not using anymore...
