I never use powder so I have nothing to compare this to but I do like it. It evens out my skin tone and doesn't look cakey or dusty. I guess that's what you want in a powder.
Very, very average pressed powder.
This is a good quality pressed powder. I actually like this just as much as my T. LeClerc loose powder and my Laura Mercier loose powder and I would definitely purchase this again. It sets my makeup nicely and keeps me shine-free for longer than most powders. It's easy to apply the powder with the puff it comes with or a brush so it actually serves double duty.
