I bought this for $2.99 at Rite Aid. This is a loose powder that comes in a tube with a brush at the end. It took me a while to figure it out. You have to hunt through the bristles to pull the rubber plug out. Put the cap back on and tap it so the powder comes out of the hole. Then you apply it on your face. The powder really covers well, and it matches my NC35 skin exacly which is a nice surprise. That rarely happens. So this is a traveling powder that will fit nicely in my makeup bag. I discovered you can also twist off the end cap and dump a bit of powder out if you don't have the patience to tap it through the other end. I'm going back to buy more of these.
