Although I love their Magic Liquid Powder in translucent, I can't say I feel the same way for this product. First, this is suppose to be the pressed version. This is not as natural and the light reflecting particles are more apparent. This powder definately shows up on my skin.

I initially liked this powder a lot for its look under florescent lighting. It gave my face a smooth, glowing finish, and the color and texure stayed true over the course of an entire day. I also did not have a problem with its pinkish cast, since I'm naturally cool-toned. In the end, I simply didn't like its glittery look outdoors, which I noticed when looking into my car's rearview mirror. For this reason, I no longer use this product, and will not be re-purchasing it.

I really like the Magic loose powder, so I decided to try the pressed soft powder in the Magic line. I found I did not get much of a cool sensation when applying the pressed, like I did with the loose powder. This gives a soft, sheer finish, not too shimmery. Great for portable touchups throughout the day.

This is an excellent powder! I don't normally wear powder because it just seems excessive but I needed one to set my concealer. This is very light and sheer (translucent). This makes my skin appear almost flawless but it's not very shimmery. It's subtle and makes skin look beautiful IMO.

This is so great, it gives you a soft, sheer look without the shimmer of the other Magic items that I feel is inappropriate for the office. I usually don't use powder as I hate the feel on my face, but this really changed everything! Plus it comes with a brush instead of a velour puff so you can't use too much. Kevyn Aucoin listed this as one of his favourite items in July 2001's Allure magazine. Update: I've stopped using it because I've noticed it gives me a slight artificial pinkish cast, not good for us Asians!
