I paid $4.73 at Drug Mart ($12.90-40% sale-$3.00 off coupon).
I am a light neutral NC/NW20 skintone.
This powder is lovely. Just lovely. I have old/oily/combo/easily dehydrated skin that breaks out from everything. I used this over my Mac Pro Longwear Foundation & it looked very natural. I didn't blot or touch up yesterday & it looked just as nice at 11:30 last night as it did in the morning.
The compact is thick, it has a narrow, half moon shaped brush in a compartment under the powder, which adds to the larger size of the compact. The brush is ok for that type of brush, but I use my Real Techniques Kabuki for my application.
I did feel like this powder gave a more "youthful" look to my skin, just because it went on so nicely & did not accentuate any lines.
I love it!
