I am on my second compact of this stuff. I absolutely love it. I use to work for MAC & I get a discount at the store, so for me to try something else outside of the MAC brand is rare. I'm so glad this caught my eye. It is smooth, silky & build-able. Feels awesome on my skin. I use a brush when applying in the morning, but touch up with the super cute sponge a couple times a day when needed. This powder has survived the hottest of hot summers on my skin. Ive even noticed it absorbs oil in my skin better than pretty much any other powder foundation I've tried. When I use Studio Fix, my face is oily within an hour or 2, and then when I touch up with it, it just looks so caked on. Not with this stuff. I got 'Translucent Light' & it blends in perfectly with my porcelain skin. I would most definitely recommend this product!
