I actually quite like this powder and I'm EXTREMELY picky about my skin looking like real skin and not a cakey mess! I basically use it as a setting powder over my tinted moisturizer. It does contain very little shimmer (sparkles, if you will...) but I can't even detect them in broad day light, only when I put a bit on my finger and look right up close. It feels so cool when applying it to my face, and just keeps the oilies at bay and gives me a bit of a luminous finish! Overall I'd buy this again. Those who want medium to full coverage I'd probably not recommend this to you. :)
I'm the one who sent the pictures of this to Nouveau Cheap's blog, and after a week of contemplating, and a long and miserable week, I decided to buy this and give it a try.
First of all, it claims "instant hydration with a flawless luminous finish".
It does feel "cool" when you apply it, but I find it doesn't have much coverage.
Also, what is up with Revlon and shimmer lately? This does contain fine shimmers that give you a luminous finish, but if you try to build up the coverage (which is hard), you'll end up like a disco ball. BUT you can only see the shimmer if you're in a well lit place. For me personally, I hate being super sparkly because I have big pores, so that is a big turn off for me (although I should have guessed from the "luminous finish", oh well!).
Packaging. It comes with a small brush that is attached to the lid of the container. The brush is not that bad (in my opinion, I'm not an expert on amazing brushes though...), it's like a small foundation brush; it's soft, rather dense, but it does pick up a lot of product.
The container, like any other mineral foundation, contains a sifter. But no matter how careful you are, you'll end up with a lot of product sifting through. Which is another thing I don't like because powder just flies everywhere.
Price wise, I got this around $11 and it is 0.35Oz/9.9g, which isn't too bad.
FOR ME, I wouldn't repurchase again. Just because I don't like the shimmer, packaging (the little brush I like though), and the lack of coverage. This is just my personal opinion, I think it would work great as a highlighter though, which is - most likely - what I will end up using it for.
Also, the colour selection for this is really poor. I think in total there are about 5 different shades? The one I chose is 'light'. But to be honest, you just something that is relatively around your colour because the coverage is so sheer. Just make sure to blend it out a bit and you should be fine.
I will edit once I use this more!
