FYI: I am a Latina woman with very fair olive skin, combination type (dry forehead, oily nose & chin, normal cheeks) in early maturity (minor facial lines, redness). Shade refs: LM Creme Silk in Cream Ivory, Bobbi Brown in Warm Ivory, Revlon Colorstay in Buff I can't believe I bought this product, and even tougher to believe how much I like it. Bronzers have never worked for me, always looked phony and unattractive. Since my skin tone has actually faded as I've matured, I never imagined I could wear bronzer well. This soft, light brown pressed powder works beautifully with fairer skin tones. It goes on soft with a natural matte finish. The color is more "lukewarm" than golden/warm and should work for all but the coolest skin tones. It's a definite multi-tasker -- bronzer, contour powder, blush, eye shadow, a powder for medium-to-deep skintones -- and it blends beautifully. Wear is pretty good, too. I love the cocoa fragrance and don't find it overpowering, but it might be a dealbreaker to some. I think it's overpriced, but it doesn't have a comparable DS counterpart, so I'd keep buying if I needed it.
