I have this in "Anemic" and I love it. I'm a Scots-Irish Goth, so I am genetically blessed with a fair complexion that I work to preserve: I stay out of the sun when possible and use sunblock religiously. As a result, most foundations and powders don't work well with my pale skin. I use this powder over a lightly tinted moisturizer/foundation from Femme Couture and it lasts all day. The coverage is good and it has the added benefit of protecting from UV rays.
It can be applied dry or wet (for extra coverage) and comes with a sponge capable of both methods. I prefer to apply it dry to set my foundations and control any oil that might pop up on my T Zone. I don't use the provided sponge, instead I use a Kabuki brush which applies just the right amount.
This will be the only pressed powder in a natural skin tone that I will ever bother to repurchase! It's the perfect match for fair skinned ladies with warm undertones. It doesn't wash me out, nor does it make me look sallow. It's just right.
It sells for $10 on manicpaniccollection.com and in my humble opinion it's worth every penny.

I was really disappointed in this powder. I have always wanted a white powder. Most foundation is too dark for my skin - the only colour in my skin are blood vessels. Colour wise this is perfect for my skin, it takes out the pink hues of blood and matches my skin tone.
Though I've tried applying with a brush, with the puff, over foundation - with no foundation. It doesn't matter how I apply it or how lightly - I can always 'see' it. From a distance it is 'okay'. Though it is very heavy and looks quite dry, patchy and chalky up close. It seems to stick to my skin as I apply it making it uneven. It sinks into my pores unevenly, I don't have large pores so this isn't something I expect.
This powder would be good for costumes and photos though the quality is not good enough for everyday use. I'm going to stick to the palest NYX powder which has a surprisingly better pay off and is almost as pale anyway. I will have to continue my search for a good white powder.

I love it. I apply this after applying a skin tone foundation. It makes being a cruelty free goth easy :)

I use this as a setting powder to add that slightly pale look. I use this with a brush because I find that using the puff provided makes it look too cakey especially around the nose area. I like this powder because I don't have to apply as often as other powders that seem to sink in after awhile. I have not tried it alone so I don't know about the coverage without foundation under. I got it in anemic moonlight.
