I really don't like bringing down highly rated products. I don't have dry skin and for the most part it's pretty normal with some oily spots. This compact is a horrible design as most drugstore compacts are. It has the mirror on the opposite side of the powder and the puff is awful for application. So beyond just the packaging, here's what I thought of the product... Pros: -Matches my olive skin (got it in Nude) -feels soft & silky after applying Cons: -Putting this over concealer is the worst idea ever as it makes it obvious you're wear concealer -it gets into my orange-rind-like pores on my cheeks and makes them much more obvious (if this is for aging skin, I can't imagine what it'd do to lines) -it's chalky and obvious you're wearing a powder I'm not going to add the poor coverage to cons because it does state this is a finishing powder. I tried it alone over concealer and it was just awful. I couldn't imagine how awful this would look over an actual liquid foundation/TM. Bottom line: You'll look very fake and older with this powder. Might be good for a play where a younger person has to play an older character or a role where the character wears caked on make-up.
