I don't know why people expect so much out of this powder. Of course it's not going to offer great coverage, the word SHEER is in the name!
I bought this powder as a last resort. After years of Mac MSFN, Bare Mineral's Matte Foundation & more, I have dealt with breakout after breakout. I don't need heavy coverage as I don't get more than just a pimple here and there with no scarring, but I did need to control my oily t-zone. I asked a Sephora employee who set me up with a "specialist" who turned me towards this product. It feels great on my skin and after over a month of daily usage, I haven't broken out.
