Wow! I absolutely love this powder. I was a bit hesitant at first buying a loose powder as we all know how that goes in the makeup bag...however, as this is a setting powder I figured I wouldn't need to take it with me during the day anyway.It's fantastic! I think it is working really well too becasue I use it with the Laura Mercier powder puff and press the powder into the skin in the mornings. It sets my foundation competely without looking chalky even though it's translucent. It has the most gorgeous fine texture and makes my skin feel super smooth and I have had lot's of compliments for my porcelain complexion just lately. Usually with this powder I will not have an excessive amount of shine even after a really long day in the office. I'll be interested to see how this goes in humid Sydney summer so I'll get back to you on that one. But so far, even after gym or sweaty, usually shiny face days it's been smooth sailing. I've been using Elizabeth Arden extreme conditioning cream spf 15 under it and even though that is a slightly oilier day cream it hasn't bled through this powder.
