This is a great finishing powder or probably would even work well on it's own. IMO, PF makes the best drugstore powders out there. I don't even bother with high-end brands.
Now about the packaging. I would prefer this product in a sifter mill instead of the brush. I almost went out and bought a very inexpensive powder so I could toss it and use the mill. But since I'm overseas and I don't get to the store much I decided to use it as it comes until I could get to the store. At first I found it very difficult to use, very hard and I didn't feel like any powder was coming out. Then after about a week and a half of using it, I've noticed that the brush has become softer and I'm actually getting the perfect amount of powder. I often use a little more powder than I actually need so I'm happy to see that this is now depositing the perfect amount. I've been so pleased I've decided to forgo buying a sifter and just continue to use the brush. So you may want to give the brush about a week or so to loosen up before you toss the container. I'm happy I stuck with it.
