My second favorite powder (I've yet to find any to surpass Origins Silk Screen), the luminosity is derived not from shimmer particles or frost, but from extra-fine milling and invisible light defusers. It gives very little coverage, just evough to make you look 'finished,' and is reasonably priced at $20. My only complaint is that the compact does not accomodate a sponge/puff, even the one provided. A small case does accompany the powder to keep the sponge in, but I prefer it all in one for convenience. I do love the appearance of the compact, though.
