I've been using this for about 6 months now, through the Winter months in Toronto (=cold and dry), and through the Summer months (=sweaty, humid). Keep in mind that this is a powder foundation, but it offers great coverage, makes my skin look powdery smooth, great finish, and spf 21! PROS: - It doesn't seem like much in the container but it has lasted me quite some time, and I still have a lot left - Powder is super fine, so it seems to "stick" to my skin well, without blotches or cakey look - On me, the colour matched quite well, so it looks very natural - Buildable - I personally put a thin brushing of poweder, otherwise I look overdone - Did I mention it has spf? Not a bad idea to bring out a small container to reapply your spf CONS: - A little goes a long way, or you'll look like you're overdone! -> I've actually used less foundation to compensate. Sometimes, I even forgo the foundation during the days, and use just a big of foundation in the evenings - It's never happened to me, but the beauty advisor at the counter told me to be careful that in the case I "oil" up, the mineral powder darkens, giving you an orange tint Overall, I highly recommend this powder foundation, as I would just cut out the foundation itself and just use this powder. I've been shopping for a good BB cream, but I think I won't need that, either. I've tried bare minerals, and the colours are too dark. Lancome has a wider palette of colours. Hope this helps!
