While the color match is fantastic- #1 is absolutely exactly right- this powder doesn't apply terribly smoothly on me. It tends to look a bit patchy. My Cover Girl powder has a better texture. But the color match is so hard to find, I'm willing to fuss with it for a bit longer. It defintely doesn't work by itself, I have to use it over a sheer foundation. It just has very little coverage- no more than most pressed powders. Still, I wasn't planning to wear this by itself- just over sheer foundation.

Edit 12/15/04: Oh my flippin' god. I hit PAN today, and I haven't even used it every day, or anytime other than in the AM. And it sure doesn't seem that I cake it on. If I'd paid the ridiculous full price (rather than for the $11 refill price on ebay) I'd be furious at how little is in the pan- it's so shallow!

Also, I think that L'Oreal Air Wear powder foundation is virtually identical in color and texture (that is, patchy coverage, clingyness to dry bits, but good color match in light range.
