It's light and portable. But I hate that little thin round applicator they give you. It's made of the same material as those white wedge-shaped makeup sponges for blending liquid foundation. Not good for applying pressed powder. So, I switched the sponge with my Covergirl one, and it works better. EDIT: Doesn't last that long on me. Dissapears quickly.

I got this for free at Walmart w/my colorstay normal/dry skin liquid foundation. This review is for the "light/medium" color. I expected to this work well because both the old and new liquid colorstay formulas work for me, but I really hate this product. It's chalky, gives poor coverage, and majorly accentuates flakes. the packaging is cheap. the color shows up very yellow and doesn't match my PPP-w/cool undertones-skin. (just by way of comparison-- colorstay "buff" is a perfect match.)
I will not use this again.

I have absolutely never bought a another powder,besides L'oreal-loose Translucide "Medium" powder,which I've been using none stop over a couple of years.This for me,has to be the best matching & long-lasting pressed powder.Did not even have to re-touch anytime through out the day.(*I have combination skin,normally I would).Definitely stocking up on this =)

I snagged this at Ulta when I bought the ColorStay foundation. It's a good, basic pressed powder. Luckily, it's not nearly as stubborn to remove as the matching foundation! Works great to keep oil away! I was going to get light-medium, but it looked strangely peach. So I chose light instead. It's a bit too light for me, but I can live with that! My one beef though, is the packaging! It's a nice sleek black compact. But I hate the little powder puff they give you! And the compact is way too skinny to fit my own thicker powder sponge in there!=0( This major packaging flaw is probably the only reason why I wouldn't repurchase!!
