Got this last week and haven't been blown away by it yet. It's very similar to LM's Rose Bloom for me. It has decent lasting power on my very oily skin. I guess after reading the reviews that I was expecting a phenomenal product. I have a bit of an addiction to blushes(I have TONS in my collection) and although I will keep using this(I better for the price that I paid in this country), I'm not convinced that I can't find a cheaper and similar elsewhere. I have been using a regular blush brush with it and will get the BB Kabuki to try with it next week. I also found that the powder flew around everywhere when I tried to pick up color from the pot. It was all over the case and mirror and I was definately not expecting this. Hopefully, it was the brush that I was using. Not anything spectacular for me at this point. Will update after trying with the Kabuki brush.

I have very oily skin and am very pleased with this product. Prior to using this, I was using Laura Mercier's primer, oil free liquid foundation, and loose powder. I've also used Lancome's Dual Finish in the past and found this product to give similar results(I had to touch up more often with Lancome). Despite using the 3 products from LM, I found my skin still needed a lot of blotting and touching in the climate that I'm living in(hot and high humidity). This product produces better results with just one step. Like many have mentioned, this powder seems to settle in after half an hour. Although I still have to touch up throughout the day, its lasting power and ease of use is fantastic. My skin looks great and it takes less than a minute. The only complaint I have is that it does tend to pick up dry areas. Make sure you moisturize well. Overall a very nice and easy to use powder. Does a good job and the price is justifiable. Update: After using this for the past few months, I have noticed more pimples and sometimes zits on my cheeks, forehead and chin. This product definately makes me break out. Gotta give it up.
