The main reason I wouldn't buy again is the shimmer particles. They're too large, and indoors and out, I can see particles of it on my face. The powder is so-so, but not great. I think if someone doesn't mind some shimmer, it's okay. But for working in an office, it wouldn't be a good choice.

I've been using MK Loose Mineral Powder for years, and I'm a dedicated fan. Last summer I wasn't in the sun very much, except for one week, and so my color changed a little but not enough to justify buying another MK color, especially since they last forever (can you tell I love that stuff?).
I decided to branch out and try something else, so I picked up this little gem. I love that this gives your skin a little brightness, since most mineral powders tend to look a little dull. This has fantastic coverage, and great staying power. It blends well and looks natural, not cakey or dry at all. The only reason this is getting 4 stars is it doesn't last very long. I'm spoiled; my MK powder often lasts 6 months, this only lasted 8 weeks. At $14 it's not expensive, but my MK powder is only a couple bucks more than that. I'll definitely buy this again, but it will probably always be a backup. Love the little compact, so it's great for traveling.

I absolutely LOVE this powder. I've been using it for about 7 months and i have ZERO complaints. It covers the way a liquid foundation would. I gives a flawless finish and I absolutely love the tiny glitters in it. Like the previous comment said, you can lightly dust it on for light coverage or you can use a more dense brush (like a kabuki brush) for more coverage. Im just now finishing my first compact so it lasts pretty long (I use it everyday) I would definitely recomment this to anyone. And and I cant forget to mention that I had no breakouts what-so-ever.

I bought this after wanting to try a new foundation. My skin has been breaking out from my liquid foundations, so I recently switched back to powder. I like the fact that this powder is mineralized and that it is pressed, so I can touch up wherever I go. The coverage is controllable, meaning I can lightly dust for minimal coverage, or buff it on for greater coverage. If I want to more coverage, I usually put on a moisturizer first (no primer), then buff it on cause the powder will stick onto my moisturized skin better than dry, primed skin. (You know what I'm talking about..those silicone-based primers that suck the moisture out of your skin). Anyway, the finish isn't extremely cakey because there are tiny flecks of shimmer, so it reflects light somewhat. The price I bought it for was around $14USD, so it didn't break my bank :) Overall, I'm pretty satisfied by this product. No breakouts so far, and good coverage. For reference, I'm an NC40 and I wear this in Medium 30.
